Re: Ocean Resort and Casino (Atlantic City, NJ)

I don't keep careful track, but
I've played about 27 hours and
Have about 54 comps and 5,000 tier points
I was careful to make sure
My play was always accounted
For, so I think I have received
Credit for all of my sessions.
Today was the first time I saw
That I have tier points on the kiosk.
I earned the gold card a few days
Ago. It's possible I may earn the
Platinum card in 2 weeks. Keeping
The black card will require averaging
4 hours and 12 minutes a day until
The end of September.
My sense is that in the past
Few days, several errors in
The software programming were
Fixed, to reflect the offers advertised.
I like 10 handed. I don't like
To play short-handed with 9.

Re: Ocean Resort and Casino (Atlantic City, NJ)

They use the very nice KEM cards here.
There is an ongoing 2-5 NL game.
Wake up 2-5 players: we have coffee
And a
A full game already started
On a Sunday morning!!! The
2-5 hame
has been going on for
12 hours now. Full table.
We also had 4 1-2 games
And a 1-3 NL game
Last night, 6 tables.
During the day there
was a 3-6 limit game.
Although the accumulation
Of tier points and comps
Varies wildly from session
To session, something like
Mystery tier points and mystery
comps, I've managed
To get 64 comps and over
6,000 tier points so far!

Re: Ocean Resort and Casino (Atlantic City, NJ)

Went through the night and still going
Strong at 6 pm Sunday, several original players still
In the game.
Meanwhile, I think 1-2 gets 2 comps an hour and
179 tier points an hour, for black card holders.

Re: Ocean Resort and Casino (Atlantic City, NJ)

Howz the parking situation at the Ocean? Do they charge upon entrance or exit?

I plan to come in, play some poker and upgrade to Ocean high tier card using my Diamond and/or Borg Gold card. Will I be able to pull that off w/o getting charged for parking (that **** tilts me).

Re: Ocean Resort and Casino (Atlantic City, NJ)

Card match appears to be through Sept 30. Does this mean the matched level is good through Sept 30 or they stop matching on Sept 30 but the status is in place longer?

Caling is best bet. But be prepared to wait for awhile on hold

Re: Ocean Resort and Casino (Atlantic City, NJ)

Blue = Blue (bottom tier at both). It can't hurt, but it doesn't look like you get anything automatically. If you're not going to play, you probably won't get anything from them.

Re: Ocean Resort and Casino (Atlantic City, NJ)

Why on earth do new tiers expire September 30? What possible sense does it make to draw people in and then cut them off just after the peak season ends? Fall/winter is when they need everyone who's willing to come and play, and one of the biggest lessons from Revel's failure is that regulars go where the offers are. Expecting to establish a customer base in just three months, even the summer months, is ridiculous, isn't it?

Because right now the casino is a mess with mobs of people with black cards. The wait to get into the premiere lounge right now is crazy. All of the free loaders who traded up just to milk the system are actually causing real players who are of value to the casino to get frustrated and move elsewhere.

If you continue with this ratio of black card holders, where is the value for the real players that deserve the comps, lounge access, etc? I think they've already given out too many black cards, even if it's only temporary.

What do they offer in the Premier lounge? And if you have a high enough card how many people are you allowed to take with you?

Diamond lounge type place with average buffet of food and drinks. With black card you can take in three guests.

You can see the undesirables of the city just milking it for every ounce they can get in there while they can.
