Olds, at what point is that transaction? Right upon saying hello? I'm in a tough spot since their computers would only have me as an old tower comp based on (no) play. It reflects poorly on them to somehow grant me the new tower without that $29 upgrade fee. I'd have to come across with a twenty to make it worth their while I assume. Borgata is a different story. They actually have well trained, personable staff. Resorts must be the dregs of the AC casino hotel hospitality talent pool.

Hey Olds and Jim, what loyalty bonus tier credits did you receive, I got 15,000, my brother received 10,000, others got 7500.

The start of the year has not been great gambling wise, nothing has changed for me, same bank roll, same machines, same games, nothing clicking. And its not just me, a few regulars I know are experiencing the same results. Will be trying again this week. Still my favorite place in AC.

No crap, Jeter. What's not to love about Borgata? I've given up on the weekly or bimonthly donation trips. I think it's better to combine the gambling with hotel stays to give me a bigger time window to gamble. I've been getting rocked like Gaza myself.

I've always considered the art of tipping to be a life skill.

Ditto. I usually tip when they hand me my key cards.

Jeter. I only play at Mohegan Sun so I don’t get any loyalty credits

I got 11,000 .
Friends of mine got 8,000. But there not gold tier status.
No luck gambling so far this year.
Watch the Super Bowl game in the Amphora Lounge. Several employees stayed pass closing until the end of the game.

I guess that works for you because of the sheer frequency of interfacing with them. You don't want to form a bad penny guest rep. They'll definitely remember you and keep you in a fancy nest upon sight. For me, I think it would have to be upon handing them my ID and credit card to imply a quid pro quo.
