I just cannot play 1-2 anymore it is soooooo boring and annoying. Guy next to me kept mumbling about "this place never lets you win, you can never win, of course his flush got there, of course you gave him the heart" the whole time. wtf?

Eventually I got called for 2-5 and I played on table 84 from about 230-430.

They opened up a 7th $2-5 game around 4:00 today but by then it was too late. From that point on every table kept having seats constantly open as we approached dinner time and the 6oclock tourneys, etc.

Why couldn't they have had 7+ tables running all afternoon when there was 80+ people wanting to play? I know, not enough dealers (they had a bunch of pit dealers filling in eventually). Why aren't they ever prepared?

/rant

After leaving the table I finally figured out how to get my 15 free weekly dream points from the kiosk (super easy, its like 3 clicks. Why are people always standing in those long lines? I think it was My Rewards, My Bonus Coupons, Redeem Dream Point Coupon or something like that. Super easy!

While I was there in the kiosk I was able to click accept on the Dunkin Donuts free gift and go claim that. Free travel mug and free pound of coffee grounds - not bad!

I have never taken one to foxwoods, but I went on a charity trip to mohegan once and a mohegan rep came onto the bus and explained how to use them and then handed them off to each person as they got off the bus. I would assume Foxwoods does it basically the same.

Bus pulls in, you stay seated,driver gets off first and you wait till driver comes back with casino rep, he/she hands out comps as you get off bus. make sure you keep your return stub too.

In my experience when you enter their 'terminal' to get into Foxwoods, there'll be some staff behind glass who'll hook you up.

Random Stuff:

If you want to know how many qualifying points you have to make a king/ace card just ask at the rewards desk. 10 point days and above credited back to October will show. Then you just need to make
2500 (at 10 points a day) Or 5000 (25 points a day) The king should be easy for foxwoods regular degans

If you want to know how many points you made in a day (the kiosks and online don't tell you anymore) go to rewards location OR go to a slot machine, insert card, hit balance inquiry, enter password and your daily points, and overall points show (plus any free slot play you might have)

Just noticed they now sell the poker room Jackets, Hoodies ($52.00), Fleece, and poker room hat at the Pequot Trader store across from poker room escalator next to duncun donuts. These are same jackets you get for hitting a royal flush.

I've also noticed that Black card stats are no longer found on the kiosks either.

They were there 2 days ago, will go check in a little while

(right now the double points the black card gives you is one of the best
things given the poker player. Points do add up quickly when playing long days
at 1.5 or 2 point per hour games.

Yeah I looked in the usual spot on Saturday and didn't see the black card logo up in the corner to click on. Maybe just a glitch.

re: Foxwoods ResortĚCasino (Mashantucket, CT) -- FAQ updated 2014.5.9

When I used the kiosk yesterday, I was able to click on a picture of my card on one of the screens and it brought me to a screen that told me how many qualifying points I had and needed for the next level

Mine said something like:

Qualifying Points from 4/1/2011 to 3/31/2012:

Qualifying Points: 65......... Qualifying Points Needed: 435
Qualifying Days: 12........... Qualifying Days Needed: 13

(I don't remember the exact numbers)



No one would EVER know you can click your card to get to that screen though! It doesn't say ANYWHERE "Click on your card to see your stats", etc. I only randomly tried clicking it cause I read somewhere earlier in this thread that you could do it.

Yup that's the screen. Must've been glitchy when I tried it.

re: Foxwoods ResortĚCasino (Mashantucket, CT) -- FAQ updated 2014.5.9

Oh! Another thing I just remembered is that one of the screens said I had a "Poker White Card"

Does that mean anything any more with the new system? Are there anything specific about being a "poker card"? Am I labeled as a "poker card" because I mostly (only) play poker, or did I sign up for it especially somehow when i got it 7 years ago? Are (where?) there any other "poker card" levels besides white and black?

Also I dunno why it said I needed to hit 500 points to advance to the next level.... I need 800 to advance from crown to king. Is 500 the minimum needed for poker black maybe?

Technically when you sign up for Rewards you start with a Wild card and White card. They're the base cards. White poker card just means you don't have a Black card. It's like how the Wild card just means you don't have a Crown/King/Ace/Royal. They're all interchangeable.
