    So when I was speaking with my new host at the Cromwell today, all the offers for the weekend I was gonna come are booked, but she threw in free play on top of the comp rooms. I am a blackjack player that throws some money at the slots, but no VP. I usually just take the slot play, but curious what you all usually do. Poll below!

    At the cromwell? If you can, run it through the 99%+ VP.

    In a vacuum, I'd rather have free/match plays on the table than slot play from an EV standpoint (especially at a casino with 100x odds on craps), but your enjoyment may push you to a different answer

    I would take slots only because of the chance to hit a jackpot. it is free money take the chance to turn it into something big.

    Free play in slots in most places require 1x play-through and then it is just like cash.
    However, for tables, you can get actual table chips, non-negotiable table chips that can be played until they are lost but can never be cashed, or matchplay coupons.
    I can actually go either way, depending on what slots the casino has, what tables they have, and how they offer their table free play.

    The last time I had CET promo chips, I believe that blackjacks are paid 1:1 and they are raked after each hand. This may not be accurate now.

    I use table vouchers for the craps tables. They can only be used for pass line bets and the field, no place bets, no prop bets and they cant be used for Odds.
