Deal Details

I'm about to make my annual trip to Vegas and I have compiled a spreadsheet of all the coupons available in the American Casino Guide [americancasinoguide.com] in order to maximize my slickvegasing.

I have arranged the list geographically (as if one were walking/driving from casino to casino.)

I would appreciate if anyone "in the know" could assist me with more locations or more coupons to be had, especially those for MatchPlay/FreePlay or those NOT found in the guide.

I have been checking our Vegas threads, but almost nothing was said about the free money & buffets, which is the only thing I'm interested in.

I plan to visit 27 casinos, buy $26 worth of coupons (for two people). Assuming a house edge of 2% on even money bets & 50% edge on slot play, that will net us a profit over $350 for 10 hours of work. It didn't work out for me to get the LVA book as well, which would have increased my profit by $300 without increasing the hours of work.

Please enjoy!

OP's VEGAS BLOG - how everything went when redeeming these coupons. [blogspot.com]

Note - The spreadsheet got too large for an attachment, so I made my changes to the google spreadsheet.

Highlights:

Free play offers for new members not included in total $: I didn't include these because, unlike matchplay or even regular slotplay, your chance of making money of this is slim to nil.
  • $200 freeplay at Hooters - only pays if you hit a jackpot
  • $50 freeplay at Casino Royale- only pays if you hit a jackpot


You can get the guide for about $10 + Shipping [a1books.com], from various sources or $12.89 + FSSS on Amazon [amazon.com].

VEGAS HOTELS WITH A BUSINESS CENTER [tripadvisor.co.uk] (for coupon printing on the fly)


You can buy an additional coupon book from Las Vegas Advisor for $37 [lasvegasadvisor.com], which includes even more gambling coupons (as well as dozens of other coupons). For procrastinators (like me!) this can be picked up in Vegas, and saves you the cost of shipping. Keep in mind you can only pick them up MONDAY - FRIDAY during business hours. Limit 1 per person, 2 per household.

Quote from zohyeahz View Post :
Matchplay is for table games:

Ex.

I bet $10 on RED in roulette, the casino gives me a $10 Matchplay (so, effectively, I am betting $20.) If I win, I get $20, so a $30 payout on a $10 even money bet.

Slot Play is free money to put in the slot machine. To maximize this, here is what you do.

$10 free slot play - Find a machine you like that is, say $2 per spin max bet. Put in your free slot play. Click max bet 5 times. Click cashout. Anything that cashes out is yours.

$45 in free slot play at Venetian. You have to do a little work to get it, but it's well worth it. If you're not already signed up for their slot club, sign up online and you will get $15 in free play. Use the coupon in American Casino Guide for an additional $15. There's also a coupon in American Casino Guide for a coupon book at the Venetian shops. You have to go to the Las Vegas Store in the shopping area to get it. There's another $15 coupon for free slot play in there. Use all three and that adds up to $45.

Well, for me, I will be playing with a partner. So, if I play all of my matchplays on Craps - this is how it will go -

$10 Matchplay

$10 + $10 bet on Pass
$10 + $10 bet on Don't Pass
$1 bet on 12


If 7 or 11 - I risk $21, win $30 - $9 profit
If 12 - I risk $21, win $40 - $19 profit
If any other number - I risk $21, win $30 - $19 profit

I just bought two of each book.
Your math is wrong.

First, any other number and then 7 is risk $21, win $30 - $9 profit, not $19.
Second, 12 is 30 to 1, not 40 to 1. You get a $9 profit there too.
Third, you're with a partner so you have to split your winnings. If you're saying you don't because you bought both books, you still need to cut the "book value" of the match play in half.

i noticed on the trop site it says if you sign up for the Diamond card, play ten minutes, you get a free room, mon.-thursday... question, is it free to get the diamond club? and if so, is it just that easy, 10 minutes of play and you get a free room? anyone have any experience with that?

This is an LV thread, not an AC thread, but I'll answer anyway. Yes, its pretty much that easy but the room is for a future stay. You get a postcard a few weeks later. If its anything like the Harrahs free rooms, though, you will be responsible for about $12 in taxes and fees.

Don't forget Restaurant.com, with 70% off it's a great deal. There are at least 17 restaurants on the strip that take it.

I just bought two of each book.

Also, several coupons are for slot play. Generally, this involves no OOP - you just play the free money. So, technically, you wouldn't need your own money if you used your slot play winnings to bankroll your matchplays.

bounce

There is also ways to play hedge bets solo.

Eg.
$10+$10 matchplay on pass
$15 on Don't Pass
$1 on 12

Inital Outlay $26
Win on Pass - $30
Win on Don't Pass - $30
Win on 12 - $32
So the you will profit a minimum of $4 risk free per matchplay

The Pass line on Craps is the best play for an "Even Money" match play with an EV of 48% of face value.

BTW: The best EV you can get is paying the matchplay on a single number in roulette at 87-92% of face value.

I just found a really good one - WIN cards at the Palms. Pay $20, get a reference card & $30 in freeplay chips. These chips can only be lost (cannot be cashed in.)

EX -

Play $30 freeplay chips on red on roulette. Get paid $30 real chips. You still have to play the $30 freeplays again until you lose them.

Hey zOhYeahz,

I posted about Win Cards on page 6 of this thread. From your plan of attack, you should also be able to use them in Circus Circus and the Four Queens. Check to see if you can use them with your matchplay coupons for less out of pocket expenses.

We just booked our trip to Vegas in August.... 7th through 11th.

Trying to convince my friends to go for the American Casino Guide and Las Vegas Advisor books..

The Las Vegas Advisor coupons... are they uniquely coded? Wondering if I could print off 2 copies when i joined, or if I need to signup for 2.

Thx!

it's a physical book. The online coupons are not as good as what's in the book. I just found out today that you can only pick up the book during business hours MON - FRI. As I am arriving on a Friday evening, and playing through Monday night, I have decided to forgo the book (after all that work!) HTH

I added a page to the spreadsheet detailing which restaurants on the strip have restaurant.com coupons and which ones you can "double dip" with rewardsnetwork (skymiles, southwest, aa miles, etc.)

So the $37 membership does not give you the actual book or a way to print the same coupons? I thought you could print the same coupons, but I really haven't researched this well yet.
