Re: MGM casinos now charging for parking..

Looked at the picture several times, zoomed in, adjusted brightness; the elevator still looks like nothing but black to me. A lot of us must just be colorblind?

Seems like there's going to be a market for stolen license plates in Nevada. Or if you already have some, when moving out of state they can be sold on eBay.

Could be your monitor, try using your phone (or visa versa). The lighting is low, so it looks very dark, especially bottom left. Look at the top of the door frame.

Is the dress black or blue? lol

Re: MGM casinos now charging for parking..

Is the elevator door color different on every floor? Does it match the respective level scheme?

Each level has similarly mismatched colors/signage. If you find stuff like this humorous, follow @_youhadonejob1

I've been in Caesars a lot the last couple months. I've never noticed colors at all, I just remember the level number.

Re: MGM casinos now charging for parking..

They should name the levels something people are going to remember, like

Floor 1: doubled down on hard 17 vs dealer 6 and won

Floor 2: woke up on a park bench with an empty wallet and a condom on

Etc

That will just confuse folks who have done more than one of those things.

It's probably worth it, just for the Pearl upgrade (free parking and buffet line pass), if you can't earn Pearl from your play. There's no annual fee, so it's just another piece of plastic in your wallet (better off spending your money with other cards that give you cash back, I think). Don't know how long they will give Pearl if you never use your card.

Re: MGM casinos to start charging for parking..

+1. I played at the Rio, Planet Hollywood, Venetian, M Resort, Palace Station and Binion's, but intentionally avoided Aria and all other MGM-owned resorts this year.

Well folks, it finally happened, just saw the aria garage entry shut down a lane because a manual car rolled back into the car behind it. Was pretty much a matter of time before that huge design flaw reared its head.

I was wondering about this. I've parked there several times and people are constantly coming up too close behind me. A lot of people just have a habit of doing that.

I always leave a lot of room and I never drive my manual car to the strip if I know I might play at aria. I've seen a car roll back 4 ft and then light the tires up in smoke lol

Re: MGM casinos now charging for parking..

Ive had my mgm card for some time now, but have not tried it as yet because I can still NV resi the parking and its much easier. I am not even sure how I would use the mgm black for parking. There doesnt seem to be a way as far as I have noticed.

Re: MGM casinos now charging for parking..

^ It's very easy, you just slide your player's card into the slot when you enter the garage, and again when you leave.

Are you talking about the Mastercard CC that gets you auto-Pearl or do you have a Noir card? Because Noir card obv should have VIP parking that bypasses all BS

Re: MGM casinos now charging for parking..

I have a NV license and a platinum card. Neither of them worked at the gate on the way out from Mandalay Bay. Very frustrating as I had to wait there and some employee on a cart had to manually open the gate with their card.

There is already a thread here about CET charging.

Re: MGM casinos now charging for parking..

I couldn't find this thread when I posted the CET one. That being said...

Does MGM still plan on charging locals at the end of the month? (CET isn't doing this in 2017 for now)

MGM also hinted that rates will increase for NYE and other 'special event'. Anybody hear anything about this with NYE approaching?
