Playing at another Boyd casino

Going to Sin City in a couple of weeks, staying at the Orleans but thinking of also playing a little at Gold Coast for a day or two. Will Boyd amalgamate all my play at both casinos in terms of comps and future offers or will splitting my play between two casinos mean I get 'rated' for each individually even though they are owned by the same company?

I assume I can use an Orleans players card at Gold Coast and that any points for my play will be combined but if playing at the GC is gonna lower my customer 'value' at the Orleans then I might not bother. I'd much prefer Orleans to be my 'home' casino so wouldn't really be interested in offers from GC.

Any Boyd experts out there?

Thanks, do you know if it will affect my rating if I split my play across two Boyd properties?

The players card acts as one combined card for points and level.

My experience is each property rates individually as far as offers.

Many thanks, in that case I'll not split my play so much as I'd rather maximise future offers from the Orleans.

HI reely.

I usually stay at the Orleans during our visits and often have a flutter at the Gold Coast and additionally the Fremont when downtown. Make no mistake, I'm a low roller but I always get 2 nights comped at Orleans as does MrsCFC which I understand is virtually standard for even minimal play.

Anyway, my wife and I got chatting to a General Manager at the Gold Coast and we asked why our offers were exclusively from the Orleans despite our play in other casinos. He explained that because we stayed and played there initially it became our 'main' hotel from where our account would be based and as a result receive offers from.

He went on to say that he would quite happily get it changed for us but by his own admission stated that the Orleans was a nicer property with better pool and restaurant facilities so we'd be shooting ourselves in the foot so to speak.

I think this kinda explains what you are asking and it seems a satisfactory explanation. That said, I've been blagged before ..... ha ha.

They both tend to give two night offers for reasonable play (machines). If you have already given Orleans good play you may as well try GC....since you are doing it for the fun of it. Point being you might wind up with a four night comp (two properties) rather than just one two night. Also, you may get lucky and have one of them over a weekend.

All of that being said it is probably cheaper to just plan on paying for accomodation where you actually want to stay.

Thanks MickCFC, this will be our first time staying at a Boyd property so it sounds like as we are staying at the Orleans that will become our Boyd 'home' then Tossed a coin between the Orleans and Sams Town for this trip (liked them both when we visited last year) so happy that we chose the one that is at least near the Strip etc. after your comment lol (Sams Town looked nice but definately wouldn't want to only get offers for there). I'll show the GC some love for an afternoon, as we've not actually been there before, rather than a couple of days just to be sure the majority of my play will be where I want to receive the offers.

Time2Travel, don't think we'd be interested in staying at more than one place in the one trip, we like to get settled and know we can then just relax and enjoy ourselves. We don't play purely for comps, to us they are just an extra benefit that's gained from playing what we want for however long or short we want anyway. That said it would be silly in our opinion for us to perhaps hurt any future offers by splitting our play when both places will likely have many of the same slot machines anyway.

I'm sure you realize the VP at Gold is better, although Orleans is not bad. We spend at least one night st Gold Coast every trip, for dinner and a little VP.

With just that little play my wife gets 2 weekday comps, in addition to her two nights at Orleans. I only get 2 nights at Orleans. The difference is probably that she hes played a few slots and ask do not.

Enjoy Gold Coast. It won't damage your comps at Orleans.

Thanks ktinca but we're both slots players so better or worse VP doesn't make a difference to us. Interesting that you both get offers, I presume you each have your own players card in that case? Can you combine your offers, as in have 2 free nights on one players card followed by 2 more free nights on the other one? That would be cool and would definately be worth us both signing up rather than just the one of us.

Thanks dianenjnj, worth bearing in mind in case we want to stay at Sams Town instead of the Orleans at a future point.
