A sill free play question...

Hi all,

Heading back again next month after receiving an incredible offer from Aria (following my first visit there in early Feb - great hotel, can't recommend it enough). I have a good free play amount and am wondering what to do with it?...

I have had free play before and usually go to a high limit slot and it's gone before I can grab a cocktail. Can you start your free play on one machine and if the slot is cold, move along to another or, once you start your free play, do you have to finish it (where you started)?

Thanks all!

Most casinos allow you to take the remaining credit from one machine to another. However many casinos restrict the type of machine that you can play with the credit. For instance, I would run it through the 9/5 JOB to try and turn it into real cash, but those machines might be restricted.

Some places allow the free play to be used in "chunks" and others require it to be used all at once - it"s probably somewhere in your T&Cs.

If it's allowed (and you know how to play) I'd use it on a full pay video poker machine. Play it through once (e.g. $1000 freeplay on a $5 machine = 40 spins) and cash out. Then go play anything I want.

You insert your card, then enter your PIN, then choose the amount of FP $$, (usually in 5 or 10 dollar increments), from your offer that you want to play. No need to play it all at once, or on just one machine.

All depends on if the free play is for machines or table games. Do you already know which it is??

I just left Aria and was able to use point play at different machines. I am guessing Free play would be the same? It was our first trip there as well and we really enjoyed it. Hopefully we will be getting some good offers soon too!

If it's for table games you'll be given a voucher or vouchers or promotional chips. These are usually only good for even money bets.

" Can you start your free play on one machine and if the slot is cold, move along to another or, once you start your free play, do you have to finish it (where you started)?"

oopsie! Just assumed this meant the OP was asking about slots, not tables. ;-/
