My main concern would be players that were actually playing when the terms changed. They would have an ugly scene if they tried to not pay me as they changed the terms of the promotion while I played. You would have thought they would change the terms at midnight. This just goes to show you how hard they got hit. They had to change the terms in the middle of the day.
High denom VP and video craps, BJ and roulette were supposed to have been excluded from the beginning. That they weren't labelled was an oversight which has been corrected. Anyone who played as of the day the labels were added would still get their rebates.
The promotion hasn't changed in my mind, though I can definitely see how it appears that way in this thread. I don't regret the post at all. The Grand Guarantee still stands and is still the best slot promotion in town; maybe just not as great as what some had hoped for (and what some received).
FWIW the Grand Guarantee was not my idea, though I think it's a great one. We did a similar promotion last year that was capped at $200 loss and rebated 50% on the same trip - somewhat similar to what Trop and Cosmo came out with at the same time.
And, no, there was no hard hit. I think we actually ran pretty good against the fleas...
