Trip Report - 1/16-17

We had a comped room at The Water Club and checked in around 1 p.m. without a problem. We had a fabulous room on the 24th floor with the most incredible view - we could see the boardwalk casinos, the ocean, the marina, Brigantine, Harrah's and Golden Nugget and when all lit up in the evening it was awesome.

We first went to Resorts for lunch using our comps - we ate at Soup Man and split a pastrami sandwich that was quite good. I like playing a fish slot machine at Margaritaville, so we made a stop there. The fish weren't biting.

We were then off to get my Revel gym bag (pretty nice). We gambled a bit, not getting even a little bonus,

Resorts, Showboat and especially the Taj were empty, Harrahs and Borgata were both pretty crowded.

Harrah's was having 10x rewards and we wanted to take advantage. Not much luck here either.

We had dinner at Bills Bar and Burger. We used a $15 coupon that we rec'd in the mail and the balance was taken from our comps. We both ordered burgers and I was a quarter way thru before I realized I didn't have a burger. There was so much sauce etc in it but I finally figured I had some kind of shrimp (at least it was good). Using your Harrah's card you get a buck off. They get you with the drinks - ice tea and soda were $4 each and it was a small drink. The waitress did come back with a refill on my ice tea. For the money, I think there are better places to eat.

Back to our home base - Borgata was pretty crowded. I started out on the Walking Dead slot machine and within 10 min. I was up $460 - but you know what happened to that. It went right back in. Even though I ended up losing for the two days, I did get a lot of play and hopefully that will show on my comps with the 3x offer they had.

In the morning we ate breakfast at Bread and Butter and hung out in our room for a bit. At noon I got $100 slot play and lost that too + more of my own.

It as a nice 2 days away.

Thanks for sharing your interesting report.

I agree Bills gets everyone with drinks. We were charged over $7 for two coffees last week and they didn’t even have any choice of real milk! Yet the bar there was packed with paying drinkers after Eden Lounge closed until 4am. For the money, I second there are better places to eat.

So did you inform anyone at Bills when you were given the wrong order?

You lucked out at Bill's because their Shrimp burger is great! Wonder if another table got your burger instead of their ordered Shrimp burger.

You will be getting 3 times slot dollars, not comp dollars from Borgata on Thursdays in January.

Slot dollars are usually earned at half the rate of comp dollars and do not kick in until you have earned a minimum of $10 comp in a gaming day.

Nice report. I agree with you about Bill's Burgers. We ate there last visit and will probably (never say never) not eat there again. Nice room and nice win on Walking Dead. Is this the same game as Day of the Dead?
