    My plan for my upcoming trip (four nights at GG in a Deluxe Room) was to have two strong play days at GG/D and then collect FP (September/October) and get 2000 points each day to maintain offers at QQQQ. Would it be better in the sense of maintaining my offers to limit my play at GG/D to those two days where I can devote my play there, or to play some after I’m done at QQQQ so I have higher total play for my trip even if the ADT is lower? Most of my play would be video poker, and I would plan to hit $10K coin-in on each of the two days I am not playing at 4Q. Thanks in advance for any insights you can provide :thumbsup:

    Its a somewhat of a black box as to how rewards club details their rating system. Some comments indicate casinos will average your play during your stay others indicate it is ADT. It may not make a difference but likely safer to have 2 big gambling days compared to 4 moderate days. Would you consider staying 2 nights at 4QS? This way you could have strong days at each place during the days or your stay?

    I agree with @Brandt. As much as it sucks to have to move properties, I did what you're talking about (had some higher and no play days) and my offers went down significantly at The D.

    Related question, do they view all play at all 3 of their properties the same? Meaning if I stay at The D, but gamble mostly at Circa, will I get dinged on my offers at The D?

    At this time it’s a lot easier on me, both physically and in terms of enjoying my trip, not to move hotels (especially during a four-day trip)… it looks like I may not want to zero-play D/GG any day during the trip, which is fine :) but I may not get in the time at MSS I wanted to :oops:

    I played only at The D in June, and now I get the monthly offers for all 3 locations, but I also get specific offers for The D, and not the 2 others. That seems like they do a general offer and then targeted ones.

    I usually stay at The D comped but only play at GG. My offers are consistent between the two properties (not circa lol) in regards to freeplay etc and as of recent, I also no or low play some days and high play others, which hasn't affected my offers.

    There was another thread on here about what it takes to move the needle on Club One offers. They have a weird algorithm and I can't really explain it. My Freeplay and food credit remains consistent despite large variations in play. I am interested to see if January/Feb ticks up because last trip in July was pretty heavy.
     
    One night ---first time Aria
    Likely final stay of 2021--Wynn or ParkMGM dep on offers

    Here is another way to look at your play.

    If you came to town for 2 days vs 3 - how do they rate you?

    Without any detail - I am going to guess ADT is more important that having total play over 3 days. Doing 3 days will bring down the ADT.

    On my last 3 trips of July August and September, I was playing significantly more at all 3 properties. my offers have not changed. I'm sure they would have been better if I was playing all in one day.
    I am usually downtown for 7 nights and I change hotels 2 or 3 times and play all over the place. I played at all 3 properties on all 7 days. so even though I gave them a lot of coin in, I got nothing more in return.

    Casinos I do not stay at I go in on the days I have free play and thats it. If I go end of month to beginning of month trip, I use the end of month free play and play. Then I go on a 2nd day which would be beginning of next month and use the free play and play to try and keep my free play the same, which has been working. I do the same with club one that has free play you can use end of month and beginning of month. Club One and 4Q/binions you can play free play and play end of month and then get free play again beginning of next month. When I stay end of month to beginning of month, I only do 2 walk in trips for each one I have free play at. For casinos where it is only free play once during my trip, I only play there once that trip. Same thing if I go in a middle of a month, I only then have one visit in each casino that trip. Golden Nugget has different free play day promotions where I always get 2 different days worth of free play each visit, so I always do 2 visits in there every trip. If I am staying there, still do 2 because I have to do the others also. There is another post about a no play day vs low play day. It is better having a no play day some are saying than a low play day.

    Oh and BTW...I heard 4q and binions base their offers on points, not ADT. I read that in another post the other day.
