    Booking A Staycation at South Point

    Live on the west side of Vegas and bro in laws were supposed to make the trek here with family but can't make it after all. Already took off work, so wife and I decided to book a staycation at the South Point. Will be there Wed through Sat. Will be spending ample time at the sportsbook, the tables, pool, and the bars.

    Anyone gonna be in the area?

    Live nearby and visit 5 times weekly, nice facility that offers decent EV, some months better than others.

    TIP, keep an eye on the quarter progressives at the center bar...........almost on a daily basis it will be over 2,000 which is +EV

    I usually don't even bother until it hits 2400

    Best game is Bonus Deluxe which pays $100 for any four-of-a-kind.

    Be sure to play with players card, good card there.

    Yes, but they've increased prices(was always somewhat pricey) and the past two times there it appears they cut portion size a tad.
    Bad combo
    I will not go back unless with comps

    Wife said GTFOH with the feet fetish lol. Thx for the tips everyone. We've been to that deli in the past and it was good but a bit pricey at the time. May check out the Boulevard and possibly the Garden Buffet.

    Not that I've put many hours in at it.........but never have taken one down yet.

    My friend has taken four down in the past 6 years.
    ----------------
    As far as the buffet, if you get lucky, the prime rib carving station can be VERY GOOD...........would say 50/50 you will catch a VERY GOOD night with that, the other 50 will be just "ok"

    Should mention also, the same type progressive at the $1 level is at the bar by the SPORTSBOOK............one can play that at roughly the $8,000 mark...............personally, I jump on it if at 9k or higher. Same game exists there, play the BONUS DELUXE(400 for all four-of-a-kinds) game on the multi-game machines.

    As long as I'm rambling here about South Point................another tip.

    If you reach about 10,000 pts or so on your card for the day, South Point hands out discretionary comps if you ask a slot attendent.................for example, they will give you a couple buffets or $30 or so for food anywhere in the place for that 10,000 pts, and the PTS STAY ON YOUR CARD. Obviously the more points you put on card, you can get more in comps.

    The key is to ask in the same day you put the points on, good luck.

    not bad

    and it seems like $1 = 1 pt? and you old farts over 50 get special promos, that's age discrimination!

    so let's say us younger guys (haha) play 10,000 at a 99% game... that's $100 negative expectation, but you get the $30 in comps and another $30 for food... not bad! and as you said if you play a game that gets up to 100%+ with the progressive, even better

    The DOUBLE SUPER TIMES game there is the best game if one wants to play MULTI-LINE..........it's like 99.8% with the card and that's available 24/7 if one or two of the machines there are available.

    I play these when the SP runs a good monthly promo and that usually makes the game 102% or better...............in addition to the comps described above. In addition, one will earn a decent mailer of $60-$200 for the month.


    Actually the best game is DUECES if one wants to play SINGLE LINE

    One can play QUARTER, FIFTY, or DOLLAR on that multi-line game ...............3-5-or 10 hands at a time.

    So if playing the DOLLAR ten-line, one is putting $50 in action PER HAND

    I almost always play the FIFTY-CENT TEN-LINE..........$25 per hand

    DOUBLE SUPER TIMES is far, far and away my favorite video poker game.

    The problem many poker players have They donít walk away when the actual play is over whatever youíre trying to accomplish

    All these casinos now have spotters for the pros

    Guys like Fezzik would pay degens just to watch a machine and notify him when the player left And Iím talking about when an amateur player is that that machine

    you mention fezzik but not your buddy fishhead? he certainly has waitresses at smoky point and elsewhere that will text him if there's a great advantage play
