Foxwoods Resort Casino

As reported this week, there are many multiplier point offers monthly at New England’s Casinos. So, NETG visited Foxwoods Friday. with Triple Points in mind. Here is our Trip Report, but first,  check out our recent post about the other multiplier days this month:

New England Casinos Offer Multiplier Days

The Strategy 

When planning a trip to a casino to take advantage of multiplier point days, it’s good to have a strategy. Bert and I had a plan with a limited bankroll – start with slots, and if it goes south, Video Poker at the bar is the way to lengthen our time played. Remember, the casino is still looking for your ADT – Average Daily Theoretical – which means bet and time must still equal a usual play or more to show your worth to the casino staff. A quick play on a multiplier day may add points faster, but it will still show as a quick gambling day.

Before Bert arrived, my slot play was played out quickly – no bonuses, no big payouts, and definitely no fun. So, when Bert arrived, I was busy at my favorite poker bar at Foxwoods in the Great Cedar Casino – Play Bar, with my favorite bartenders Catherine, Tammy & Steve.

Besides having great service, the quality of drinks is better.  For example, Grey Goose Vodka & Club soda is comped, but in the Fox Casino at Centrale Bar, you pay an extra dollar.  Sure it’s a little thing, but the music is also geared toward boomers and includes TV monitors.  Besides, with a limited bankroll, that dollar can be used toward the tip for appreciation.

Super Times Pays is a favorite Video Poker game with a random multiplier assigned to all hands.

The video poker is decent but not great VP plays. By comparison, it’s the 2nd best video poker in New England behind Mohegan Sun.  There are  two types a bartops around the bar – Superstar II , with many VP games, keno, single line poker, slots, etc & Gamemaker – single line VP.  I suggest the best VP play for low rollers with the fun factor is Spin Poker & Double Spin Poker with  9/5 DDB and 8/5 JOB at the nickel denomination. Both machines also offer 8/5 JOB & 9/5 DDB Single line VP.  Factor in the Grey Goose and you have a decent play – especially on Triple Point Day. We both played about 3 1/2 hours with ups and downs, with a quad here and a quad there. Once I hit four Aces with a 5X Super Spin Multiplier, which kept treading water easier and a lot more fun.

DINNER TIME

The Wine Tower at David Burke’s Prime

By 6:00PM, it was time to eat, so we mosied to David Burke Prime on the lower level of the Grand Pequot Tower. It’s famous for some of the world’s finest steaks, aged in an on-premises patented salt-brick aging room, as well as the 3,000-bottle wine tower, the THE PRIME TOWERS of seafood appetizers, and it’s Clothesline Bacon 19 – extra thick-cut candied bacon, with black pepper & maple glaze. When visiting, ask about their different “at-the-table” experiences as well.

Mmmmmm….Popovers!

The staff and service is extraordinary, and the opening Popovers are incredible light and delicious. We decided on two entree’s – Stonington Scallops, with chorizo, risotto sweet potato hash,& togarashi citrus sauce.

Stonington Scallops

Bert absolutely loved the different tastes which came together effortlessly. I had the Double-Cut Berkshire Pork Chop with firecracker apple sauce and a side of roasted asparagus large enough for both of us to enjoy and still bring some home. The bill was under $$90 for fabulous cuisine, extremely attentive staff and a feeling of a high level restaurant completely away from the bells and whistles of any casino.

The Porkchop was huge! I dove in before taking a picture!

It was an enjoyable way to take advantage of the one Multiplier Day at Foxwoods. I believe they will offer another in January. Watch all of our 8 casinos the their promotions right here at NETimeGamblingYour  COMPLETE RESOURCE FOR THE RECREATIONAL GAMBLER featuring the Casinos of New England.

New England Casinos Offer Multiplier Days

I Love Multiplier Days!

One of the great equalizers to earning comps and decreasing payout percentages is gambling big on multiplier days. In New England, where the competition is about to get fierce and the eventual nine casinos are going to be battling for patrons money, multiplier days are one of the best ways to get people through the doors.  It’s also one of the type of promotions that gamblers should take advantage of.

Bonus point multipliers have long been used as a marketing tool in casinos. The practice dates back to the earliest days of player tracking systems. Multiplier days can increase your status/tier points and/or club points for dining, etc.

Mohegan Sun has always offered multiplier days. Now, Foxwoods & MGM Springfield are offering them as well. Oxford Casino in Maine has also offered these type of promotions for quite a while. Here are the list of multiplier days in December at New England’s casinos.

Oxford Hotel & Casino

OXFORD CASINO & HOTEL

In the middle of Maine (actually considered southern Maine), in the wilderness where the town of Oxford sits, you can find Maine’s newest casino, owned by  Churchill Downs Inc. It’s quite rural, with the biggest point of interest besides the casino being Poland Springs Water production center.

Oxford offers many promotions, and multiplier days are included. This month, Oxford’s typical points days includes:

The bad news about these multipliers is that they exclude Tier Points, Keno & Video Poker. Only slots and slot points are included.  The video poker is so ugly, you would think they would include VP as a compromise….just saying……

Mohegan Sun Hotel

Mohegan Sun Casino Resort

STATUS MAYHEM – Thursday, December 13th. Give your Momentum status a huge boost with Status Point multipliers from 6:00am – MidnightThe multiplier will randomly change throughout the day – earning you anywhere from 2X – 5X Status Points. Each multiplier is guaranteed to occur at least twice. What’s cool about this promo is that at least 2X is guaranteed throughout the day on your tier status points. Every hour, or sometimes on the half hour, the new multiplier is announced and posted on screens all over the three casino areas. (Not valid on poker play.)

DOUBLE MOMENTUM & STATUS POINTSFriday, December 21st. (Not valid on poker play.)
