MIA: 25c, 50c, $1, $5 : 99.54% JoB scattered around casino
Peppermill properties first. The best games are NSUD and 9/6 Jacks, They are everywhere, 5/25/50/1/5. All three properties are copies of Peppermill/Reno. Neon Glitz. The rooms are just a cut below Peppermill Reno, but large with queen or king beds, coffee maker, 20 channels on the TV, in room movies. I always catch up with the movies here. Have watched Cinderella Man, Good Night and Good Luck, and Walk the Line so far. Have to see Glory Road and Syriana sometime this week. You'll wake up every morning to find the Salt Lake Tribune slipped under your door. Wendover is 135 miles from Salt Lake City. The clientele is mostly Salt Lakers who take day trips on Donna's Tours or Lebus. Cost is $14 with $7 cashback and free buffet. You can change your day of return for $10. The highway traffic also adds to their clientele. Wendover sits right on I-80. Then there is Millionaire Express (1-866-359-9363). They bring people in from 17 different states in the West, Northwest, Southwest and Midwest. The packages are for roundtrip air travel and 3 night hotel stay and run from $99 to $199 depending on the distance and include all taxes and fees. The card is worth .5% comp which can be used for rooms, meals and future flights on Millionaire Express - user friendly self comp. Just go eat and hand them your card. Each property has a buffet (slightly above average and priced $9 to $15 depending on whetrher it's breakfast, lunch or dinner). Each property has a restaurant (probably on par with Denny's but you can get a good meal for $10 to $12. Then there is the Steakhouse at the Rainbow (well worth the effort). Plus .25% Passport Points which can be used in the gift shop for cigarettes, top shelf booze and clothing (not a very big selection, but Tommy Bahama). One card for all three properties. It doesn't matter which casino you play, you can spend the comp in the others. Their mailers are pretty good too. I came through because they sent me 2 nights Jacuzzi suite and $100 bounceback. But I'm gonna stay for awhile because they still play donkey poker here.
*** MIA - *** $1 10/7 DB scattered around casino. (11) $1 20/10/6JW2 - location and game details are unknown. 25c 9/6 JoB bartops PROG (RF) @ some of the bars.
All of the following are on the same MG/MD uprights scattered around casino. DW - 25c and up @ NSUD - 5c/10c is at LV Airport odds. JOB (FP) - 25c and up. Ace and Faces - 25c and up @ 98.98%. JokerPoker King or better - 25c and up @ 98.44%.
The (11) $1 KBJW have been downgraded to 2PJW. There is still a lot of $1 10/7 DB around the casino.
As far as wendover there are very few full pay machines. most pay out around 96% The new state line Nugget has put in a huge inventory of game king VP there are dozens but we have not found full pay yet, and the 3 play and 5 play seem to pay around 94%. There are so many new machines that it will take quite a while for us to look at them all. At Montego bay we have found 2 full pay machines by the elevators and one upstairs by the skyway to the state line nugget. We havent found any full pay at the peppermill or the Rainbow, but since they have started putting in the tito machines there are a lot of new ones there too. The Peppermill, Rainbow and the New Montego bay have a new slot club program. All three now share the same card and its called the passport. The details are non existant but from playing and evaluating points earned it seems that 1$ in = one point and 100 points = 1$ CB. There no longer seems to be discresionary comps and its a bit harder now to get a free room. The Rainbow and Peppermill are still sending quarterly coupons, however I dont know how that will change with the Montego Bay added to the group. The grand opening for the Montego Bay is Oct 31-Nov. 3. The Montego has also added a pool and a day spa/fitness center. I was talking with one of the shuttle drivers saturday night and it seems there are some great new things comming to Wendover. There is a master plan for a new resort and light rail will be going in sometime in 2004. The changes for Wendover in general are fantastic and it is becoming more of a resort town instead of just a little border town. The State line Nugget, also has a new slot club program but I havent had time to evaluate it since we dont play there as often. The Nugget has added so many Game King multi play, multi denomination VP machines that there are more of those than slots.
