Glad you got it straightened out, and got your points back....But, I think I'd be mad at the, 1000 points = $1   That's pretty bad!   At our casino, we get $1 for 300 points...

What is missing here is a critical factor - how much play is needed to earn a point?

At Seneca Niagara, for example, a point is worth $1, but it takes $350 coinin to earn that point.

At Mohegan Sun, it takes nearly 500 coin on video poker   to earn one point worth a dollar to spend at the casino. Any 99 percent machine will give you zero points you can spend and only tier or what they call status points. As a result of that rule that started in August of 2011, my bank of about 9000 points worth a buck each is now down to less than a hundred bucks. I had a similar situation to Wildman a year or so at Mohegan Sun. It was a Kiosk promotion and I don't remember it saying the free play you won had to be used in 24 hours. I was there more than 24 hours and didn't use it figuring I would the next day. GONE....Got a similar runaround until I called the director of player development who I know pretty well. He was nice enough to restore the 250 bucks to my free play.

Onemoretry, it's $1 for 1 pt. Even on Poker and Keno. It use to be on Poker and Keno it was $2 for 1 point. Slots was always $1 for 1...But they changed it a few years ago to include all. Which makes it nice.

In most jurisdictions, that is not the case at all. As noted in the post about Harrahs Joliet above, sometimes casinos are required by the regulatory authority to pay for their mistakes.
Florida has no state gambling commission and no one to test the games.  The Hard Rock Casinos are on tribal land and make their own rules.   They say they comply with Vegas regulations, but there is no one to verify this.  That said, the games seem fair to me. 

Is there something that keeps a casino from changing their pay tables?    Is there anything that keeps them from baring a player if he wins too much?    You are allowed to play at a casino if you are willing to follow their rules.   As long as the games pass whatever regulations their are, the rules are up to them.  In Florida their are no rules.

Note: I am a Recreational Video Poker player by choice. Comments I make on this forum come from that perspective. They sometimes conflict with the thoughts of players who play for profit.
