Trip Report Atlantic City casinos

Jump to last reply

I go to AC about every 3-5years. I took Academy bus from the P.A.; man, what a mess. Buy tickets at gate1 below, not above. Price is now $36 both ways. Not bad, considering you get a $25 slot bonus.

When we arrived in AC, we were forced to sit in the bus 15mins for the greeter to hand out the slot bonuses. I already had a Total Rewards card, but those who didnt had to stand on another line to get one.
The slot bonus only works with the TR card. You CANNOT cash out the bonus, or any winnings on it. huh? Even if you win $200 you have to keep playing until you lose it all! Before this nonesense, you got $20 cash/$10 buffet credit. Ifcourse everyone had to carry buckets of quarters.
1 credit = $5. Thus, you get 5 credits on the bonus. So, since you cant run away with the money, just play $1 slots and move on. When you play slots, insert the TR card, and play to get atleast 1 credit. Otherwise, it's a waste to use the card if you play $1 on 0.05c machines.

Now, a warning: these casinos use TR:
Vegas: Flamingo, Imperial Palace, Paris, Planet Hollywood, Rio
A.C. & Vegas: Bally's, Caesar's, Harrah's
A.C.: Showboat, WWWest

all other casinos are not in the TR system. So, if you go to those casinos, you get a different card. Also, you have 6 months to add atleast 1 credit, otherwise you lose all your credits. Bogus aint it?! BTW, Bally's has the best system as you could order drinks and check balance on the slot.
Forget going all the way to Tropicana, and Hilton. As for Borgata, Golden Nugget, Harrah's, go there only if you have time. That area is going for a Vegas feel, but you might as well go to Vegas instead of anywhere that pretends to be.

As for that new shopping area... Why would NYers waste time shopping in those stores? Everything that's in that shopping area is available in NYC, Philly, Boston, etc. Thus, the area is a waste of space.
Yes, the run-down homes and businesses and unsavory crowds are gone, but no one
goes to AC to buy a Ralph Raulen shirt.
