    Had dinner with some fellow fanatics shortly after this email hit. We all had a good laugh about the goals that had been set for us, especially considering the proportionately modest FP numbers for increasing our play THAT much. KS, I truly appreciate your ingenuity in finding ways to engage us and make us want to play more at Cosmo. You’ve come up with some really compelling promos in the past year alone. Can’t speak for others, but for me this one isn’t persuasive at all.

    Looking at the numbers in isolation, I agree with that assessment, but aren't these offers from cosmo usually "stackable"? That is, if the same points also counted towards the scratch off key card promotion, plus you get to keep the points, those add up to a pretty good rate of free play return relative to coin in (really good compared to casinos of cosmos quality).

    I didn't get this offer and I assume it's because I play video poker and they don't want someone doing the above and grinding their edge (again, already as good as you'll find on the strip) down to a tiny fraction of a percent. Seems fair to me...

    They are stackable. You keep the points from the keys, and the free slot tournaments they are offering. Also unlike most places it Isn't tcs it is true points with the multiplier added in!

    While I know I probably won't hit my number [unless I have extra trips and variance is on my side!] Cosmo does have some of the better promos on the strip and they are attainable to any level of player

    This is enjoyable dialogue! There are some very astute comments on here on how the promotion itself works.

    Ultimately, I know that nearly all of our players also play at multiple other locations. And if I can create just another incentive that gives you a reason to give me more of your gaming activity than my neighbors, that's what I'm trying to do. Is it possible the "goals" were too high, perhaps. But I also expect there will be hundreds of guests who only have to give me one extra trip to reach their goal and hit their purely extra freeplay bonus. As already indicated... you don't lose anything if you don't reach the goal, you just don't get to add this extra promotional layer on top of everything else we already do.

    The slot machines, by and large, that you play at my casino are the same as everyone else's (although I think I keep my floor fresher with content than the rest) - but if there are continuous reasons to play at Cosmopolitan than the other guys... I'm doing my job.

    Hope to see you all soon for the daily slot tournaments running every day in February! And you keep the points!

    -KS

    ^^This.

    I received the email, and my "target goal" is wayyy more than what I did last year (I AM only Sterling but I play more single-line VP than I do slots). With only two trips planned this year, I doubt I will hit my number either. I'll be happy though if I can at least hit Gold, so that is my personal target.

    I'm sure you know but in case you don't resort spend counts towards tier progression. So if you are close before you leave treat yourself to a nice meal or buy yourself something.
