    FreePlay rewards - So many. What to do?

    Hey guys, So after my first visit to a new casino playing craps with a $5,000 bank roll and 7 hours of play. I started receiving Free Play reward vouchers for the entire month of August and September

    I've got 8 x $175 FREE PLAYS

    What is the best way to optimize profits from these vouchers?

    I'm thinking DON'T PASS line along with LAY bets on comeout roll followed by Place bets of $100 but open to suggestions.

    You'll need to find out what the fine print is on the particular casinos. None of them around home are play till you lose. They're all pay and take, even money bets only so their actual value is less than half the stated value.

    Example: $25 voucher in the field. Boxcars rolls. You get $25 and they take the voucher or token even though it was a winner.

    The last time I played at Harrah's KC I bet the $100 voucher I had on the six along with $20 of my own money. When it hit they paid $140 and converted the voucher into $100 of chips. That was a couple years ago. Since they charge vig up front and give me no points at all for Blackjack I no longer play there. So, I don't know if their free play is still that good or not.

    My experience has been that free bets are only paid at even money....regardless.

    With this...pass, don't pass, red on roulette, black on roulette, etc. You can't buy the 5....well, maybe you can but the best you'll get is $175 if it hits and they take the free bet upon resolution of the bet. I would assume they won't allow lay bets to be made.

    This subject generated a couple discussions in the old Usenet newsgroup. If you're looking for a guaranteed profit you'll be wanting some kind of doey/don't play with a hedge on the barred don't number. As mssthis1 noted the restrictions on the vouchers make a lot of difference. One restriction I haven't seen mentioned is if only one voucher can be played at a time.

    yep midnight and td have it.

    a lot of regulations with free and match play coupons.

    even money pays, one voucher at a time, that's basically the same in many casinos, although Ive used free play at Blackjack tables in AC.

    What we really want to know is, how much of $5,000 do you have left? :) Put the free play in a penny slot, play for 1 cent, ( like TD), and that should give you 17,500 X 8 "pulls". If you can't win something with that many pulls, you are a (Shlepprock), and need to just quit. :cool:

    I'm assuming it's just a caesars casino promo thing promoting many free bets and slot play credits for the month of August / September


    From our $5000 bank roll we left casino with $4600 (-100% of profits made and -$400 from our bank roll)

    August Promo's
    I've got a total of
    $1400 (8x$175) free play
    $200 Free Slot Credits (I play these credits on Digital Roulette machines betting on every number and cashing out $192.00)
    $525 Cash Vouchers

    My wife has a total of
    $1400 but mostly Slot credits

    If it is available, google James Grossjean and see if his article on promo chips is available anywhere for free. Or find a copy of exhibit CAA, his premier book on all things AP
