Best Casino Deal



What’s this, a money-back guarantee at a casino? It’s a trend we like, with the latest example being at the Tropicana, which offers a rebate of up to $200 on gambling losses. According to Anthony Curtis—author of Seven’sThe Deal” column and publisher of the Las Vegas Advisor—here’s how it works: New players-club members who lose up to $200 on slots get back 50 percent of their losses in free-play the next day, with the other 50 percent arriving in free-play 30 days later. OK, so it’s not a cold-hard-cash refund, but it’s still basically a free $200 roll of the dice. We suggest you hurry down to the Trop right now before the suits come to their senses.
