    A question for any Seminole Wildcard Elite players, are there benefits (better comps, invites, host comps) to being elite OTHER than just the parking garage area and lines priority? This casino is within a 30 minute drive from us. With the new expansion and smoke free casino, it would be great to visit between Vegas trips. We are video poker players. Reaching Elite would be possible within the 3 month time period, but is it even worth it? Also, once Elite, how long is it good for?

    Not really worth it in my opinion. I have been both platinum and elite, comps and offers stayed about the same. Once in awhile there will be a special Elite slot tourney or other promotion but not often. THR is my local and is only 10 minutes from where I work, so I visit there too often. I love the new non-smoking area and very seldom venture into the rest of the casino any more. Elite is only good for 6 months.

    I agree with Darlene's comments. Obviously, the more you play, the more free play and property credit you receive. You may also see a complementary night once in a while. There is a huge jump between the Elite and the X-Card holders but the play requirements for that really are whale class. Some Elite's maintain a 3750 point average over the three months, some maintain 20,000. I got an email from HR yesterday, "Pick up your Premier card during your next visit to any Seminole casino". I have no idea what a Premiere card is but I'll let you know.

    In follow up to my previous post, we visited HR yesterday and I visited the Players Club. I told them about the mentioned email and they immediately recognized what I was talking about. They advised those were an error. They also told me that something was in the works to reinstate a bottom tier card returning to the four level program. If I had to guess, I would say the new bottom tier will no longer be included in the casino drawings or offerings but they did not specifically tell me that. If not though, why bother with yet another card.

    We arrived to HR about 2:00pm. The garages were full except for the roof tops. Inside, the crowd size seemed like NYE. Everyone’s best guess is that there was some concert at the fair grounds and people were just parking for free at HR and doing a walk through. It was far less congested after 5:00 but it was still the normal Saturday night saturation.

    We have now received the August promotions calendar for the Elite Card members. There appears to be an ever diminishing difference between Elite and Platinum status. The Elite free play is declining as are the number of Elite Only drawings. The majority of drawings now are one warm body regardless of play, and one entry to each card holder. I have to conclude that HR promotions continue to attempt to pull in as many people as possible, at least for the slower summer months. While the number of overall promotional events is reduced in August, HR will give away a new Chevy Camaro convertible every day of the month. Inevitably, some folks who have less than $100 in total lifetime play at HR, will be driving home a new car.

    Yesterday, I was reminded of the real reason to play in any casino. A fellow my age was playing a bank of dollar Monopoly machines which I play a Jackson or two on every visit. I’m actually ahead doing so but this guy hit the jackpot for over $730,000. He appeared to be in shock!
