    I got a offer for a slot tournament at Gold Cost. 3 nights, $99, including tournament entry fee. The fine print says resort fee is not included.

    I also have normal offers from Gold Coast for 2 nights comped, for the same timeframe. The fine print also says resort fee is not included. But as I understand from reading old messages, the resort fee is usually waived for comp rooms, even though it contradicts the fine print.

    I wouldn't mind trying the slot tournament offer -- Do you think the resort fee will be waived for that offer also, even though it's not a straight comp and I have to pay $99 for the package?

    Just so you don't have to ask over and over again. Here is your answer.

    Resort fee will be added on the $99 offer. With the 2-4 day comp room offer the resort fee is waived.

    Omnia is correct. at $99 tournament offer is not a bad deal. I used to do it, but that was before they had a resort fee. :-(

    I beg to differ and xothan maybe correct. For $99 it includes 3 complimentary nights and the tournament. I thought comp nights don't include resort fees.

    on second thought, it looks like it could go either way. the $99 is entry "fee" and the rooms are comp, so there should be no resort fee. I would call and ask, they should be able to give you a straight answer. take names, record it if you have to. or try email for documentation. let us know.

    I haven't done one of these yet but I always assumed the fee would be applied. I know it says comp rooms but you pay a resort fee for comp WiFi so...

    The Gold coast does not charge a resort fee for WiFi on comp rooms

    The fee was applied last time I did this offer. The resort fee is only waived on free nights. This was in May.
