What was your best birthday gift and from which casino?

My birthday is coming up once again...

All I've ever recieved in the past was comped dinners and match plays. I've heard a few people say they received a cake in the mail.

E-mail them back a picture of you playing at a non Total Rewards casino.

Ed...thats funny!

I only received dinner offers. Ballys always gave me a comped 2 night stay,

$50 of slot play and a dinner where other Sept birthday players attended. It was very nice and festive! This was when I played in the early 2000's. I stopped going to A/C in 2006 until recently going back so I dont know if they still do that.

In The Early 90's....When I got to my room/suite at The Tropicana, There was a large Fruit & Cheese Platter along with a bottle of Pouilly-Fuisse Wine. As the song goes..........Those were the days, my friends.....I thought it would never end.....

I've always felt strongly that "Birthday" gifts/rewards from a casino were nothing more than a gimmick.

It makes no difference if the slot play/gift card/promo is a:

-Birthday reward

-4th of July Reward

-New Years Reward

-Valentines Reward

-MLK Weekend Reward

-Labor Day Reward

- or even a Friday Feb 22nd reward

Whatever label the reward from the casino has it is simply part of the overall promo/incentive package that club is offering you. Don't get caught up on the "birthday" label instead focus on the big picture

Larilu, now that you mentioned wine and fruit basket.. I did get a nice bottles of Remy XO cognac sent up to my room at Ceasars, that was many years ago. And a few of years back a host sent up a bottle of champagne and fruit/cheese plate once at Borgata, which was really nice. Nothing recently.

C-srt8, I understand how you view it as a gimmick to lure you there. But if you happen to be down at the casino anyway... It's just feels nice if they recognize it, especially if you are a regular customer (we do AC about 20+ trips per year) A comp dinner, a bottle of champagne or a small gift isn't going to break them.

DH and I have birthdays in March so we'll see what they will give us.

Many years ago the casinos used to have birthday parties. One in particular was at the Taj Mahal and they had cocktails, dinner and a band for dancing - it was fantastic.
