Palms in Las Vegas has matched the Riviera $1000 loss rebate promotion. The Palms not only includes slot machines in their promotion, but also has a separate promotion that covers table game losses. The promotion is a bit different than the one at Riviera beyond having a table game option.
Instead of getting reimbursed half at the time of claiming losses, and half at a later date, Palms is paying the promotion in three increments. Players must have never had a Palms player’s card. Residents of Clark County, NV are not eligible for this promotion in any way. Sorry locals, they do not want our action. The loss is based on your first 24 hours of play. The rules are not clear, but I think it is safe to assume the loss must be claimed at the player’s club in your first 24 hours of play. I would not risk waiting longer than that. Players that lose playing slots will receive free slot play that must be wagered one time to cash out. It is assumed video poker qualifies as a slot.
Table Game Loss Rebate
Palms is also offering a loss rebate on table games. The loss rebate is worth a bit less at tables. That is because you get promotional chips that are worth slightly less than half of their actual value. You must win the bet to have your promotional chip switched out with a real chip. Unlike free slot play where you would get credit if you push on a hand like jacks or better, if your promotional chip pushes, you must bet it again.
Both promotions include three payouts. The first payout is 25-30% of your loss paid immediately. The next loss rebate is about half of the remaining balance and can be received between 14 days and 6 months of your first play. The third rebate can be claimed 3-12 months after your first play. Claims must be at least 14 days apart. This means that you must make two additional trips to Palms to claim the full loss rebate after your first play.
Here is a link to the rules for the promotion.
Palms has made some major improvements in the property this year. A brand new Cantor Gaming sports book opened with a new poker room connected to it. There are also improvements planned for the hotel and other amenities.
