    I have been trying to search on google and on here for answers and I cannot find any information. I know the Eastside Cannery and Golden Nugget does not require hotel stay to use their offers. I am going to Vegas from 14th to the 17th staying at the California (I know for sure the California requires hotel stay to redeem free play). The other casinos I have offers for free slot play for December is the Golden Nugget, The D, any of the Vegas Total Reward Casinos, the Grand (only $5 to the Grand though), and the Four Queens. The D I get a lot of free slot play and table match play along with food and free shows as well. for the first time. This one I am most worried about and internet searching is not finding me any answers. I know for sure the Golden Nugget I can use my offers without having to stay in a room there (the last 2 years), but this is the first time I have had offers at the Grand, Floor Queens, and D (June was the first time playing at those 2 casinos). The Total Reward Casinos, most likely they still make you book a room to use the free play if nothing has changed since last year? I know my local harrahs in southern california you do not need a room to take advantage of the offers.

    I would like a complete list of casinos where you do not need to book a room to use the offers. Eastside Cannery and the Golden Nugget I know for sure no room booking is needed because I have been able to use the free play without a booked room and shows (Golden Nugget).

    Also can someone also find me the link to the website that has a complete list of free stuff and free slot play for joining the players club for 2017 if I have not joined yet? I would like to take advantage of all the freebies this year and I know about American Casino Guide Book, not worth the 15 bucks if I am not going to go to every single casino in that book. I want to find out about free stuff without having to get the book. Cannot find the link. Thanks.

    Sounds like a good idea. Thanks for starting the research & volunteering to put that list together!

    I have had TI offers where I could still get some FP even if I didn't stay (though it was a fraction of what they'd give me if I did stay there).

    This is a great list to have. I only knew the D and GG didn't. Good to know about Cosmo. I may just burn what freeplay (it's like $30) I have there since I don't expect to play much in the future.

    The Cosmo doesn't require a stay? So for example when they send me this
    "exclusive offer for you
    3 COMPLIMENTARY NIGHTS
    Enjoy 3 nights in modern luxury high above The Las Vegas Strip.
    $400 IN IDENTITY PLAY
    $50 DINING CREDIT"
    I wouldn't have to stay to redeem the identity play or dining credit? (Though I booked for the slot tournament and didn't ask about this offer, they just booked me and got off the phone lol, not curt but not overly friendly) I booked the room last time I went and doubt I would pass up the room anyway, mostly because it is sooo nice and the offers I get from everywhere else are garbage, I wouldn't walk next door for them, nevermind stay. My Cosmo room was pretty loud last time but I will take loud and free over getting ripped off and treated like garbage any day. :D

    Silverton does not require a stay. Usually stay a couple of nights, however, I've got my free play and food vouchers with out a stay a couple of different times. Also, offer is good each month and a few stays were end of month/beginning of next month (ex. 3/30-4/1) and was able to double up my free play by taking the April free play/food credit on same stay. Good luck! :beer:

    Not sure if this is the same thing as I am a table games player. I was told by my host at the Golden Nugget that I had to have a stay in order to redeem any promo chip offer I received. I will verify this next week (Dec 15) and report back. FWIW, my offer is for $100 in promo chips.

    Is it written somewhere that Cosmo will allow your freeplay without a room reservation?
    I just tried to get a room for 1/5/16, one night, to use my freeplay offer and they said they were only taking a 3 night stay minimum.

    This is different than free play. All I know is the free play my last 2 visits (June and last December) worked without booking a room. I was able to get 2 free tickets to one of the shows too (52 fridays or Gordie Brown tickets was the option).

    Oh and my offer is $125 in free slot play. I am going from the 14th to the 16th, coming back home on the 17th. I am staying at the California. Also the Golden Nugget is weird with their hotel stays and unlike other casinos where you can book for any date of the month, Golden Nugget has select dates, so there is no way I could stay at the Golden Nugget on the dates I want to stay. Also on the 16th is cash giveaway day, will get $200 in cash. :)

    • California I get $100 free play (requires a stay and is staying there 3 nights)
    • Golden Nugget I got $125 in free play (I better be able to still use it on the 14th without a hotel stay like my previous trips and it has to be used by midnight on the 14th). I also have the gifting event on the 14th and cash giveaway on the 16th)
    • Grand I have $5 free play on one of the days and $5 free play on another one of the days (weird on how they offer their free slot play and only gave me $5 in free play, the lowest free play a vegas casino ever gave me..they must be cheap)
    • D I have $75 in free play, 2 show tickets, $50 in food, two $25 match play coupons (probably will not use because you have to spend real money to use it and if you lose, you lose what u bet plus the coupon, not worth it).
    • 4 Queens I have $25 in free slot play

    I stayed in either March or April and I only stayed one night and got it. I specifically asked when I booked the room and they said no problem.
