What a joke the Meadows is - I mean, the dealers are absolutely horrendous. I'm not sure what kind of testing or training these guys went through, but my 8 year old can count to 21 with fewer mistakes than these guys. They are constantly making mistakes, taking your money when they aren't supposed to, and dealing at a snail's pace. I know they are new, but even the one's in West Virginia weren't this bad when they started. And the supervisor's and pit bosses are the bigger joke, most of them have no idea what the rules of the game are. I saw a few of them just start dealing a few months ago in West Virginia and now they are supervisors here, and they have no idea how to fix mistakes or how to handle a customer. So the dealer messes up, then they call over a supervisor who doesn't know how to enforce the rules and gives you attitude on top of it, and its no wonder you hear nothing but negative comments when you talk to other players. I don't care how close this place is, you are better off driving to AC when you want to gamble, at least you can play blackjack or craps without having to teach the dealer as you play!!
Did you go to the Meadows Casino today, Sunday, June 6th for the Summer Swipe & Win Promotion, only to be told you weren’t eligible?
On the email invite and also on the huge ad at the Casino, it clearly states “Earn 250 Same Day Points To Get Your Swipe”
After earning 250 points, you swipe your card and find that you are ineligible. The Player’s Club reps then tell players “Well, because it is a 10 X points day, you must actually earn 2,500, or 250 base points.” There is a huge difference here.
But that is not what they have been promoting.
So if you’re like us and went to play today for your chance at a “Swipe & Win”, only to have a “Bait & Switch” occur, we encourage you to contact the General Manager, Sean Sullivan, at 724-503-1234 and also file a dispute and/or complaint with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board: www.pgcb.state.pa.us/?p=113
WOW, the players club is saying it is based on what you put in the machines, so not true. Unless they mean the more you spend the less you get. Give me a break. When I quit going to the Meadows I got $80 a week in free play, now $15. All I can say is REALLY. I am going to test this out I will not go up for the month of June and post what I get next month.....
I'm a frequent patron of both the Meadows and the Rivers.
The Rivers is definitely a "classier" joint. Better food choices. Better bars. Better music. Better announcer. If you're a sports fan, there are big screen TV's galore. Self service complimentary drinks so you don't have to hunt down someone to get a drink.
Until today, I thought they're comps were the worst.
I frequent the Rivers at least three times a week and can't get past $5 a week. Granted all I play is video poker. Food coupon has never gone above $5.
I also frequent the Meadows. There have been times when I got up to $15 a week.
This is what annoys me. A friend of mine received in the mail his promo mailer. He who visited the Meadows Casino twice in the last six months gets for the month of May $100 a week in free play. $15 in food two times a month. 50,000 bonus points once a week and is guaranteed at least $75 and a chance at a $1000 a week for that other gimmick. That's $225 a week in free play. HOW THE HELL DOES THAT HAPPEN? THE MEADOWS CERTAINLY DOESN'T REWARD YOU FOR LOYALTY, DO THEY?
I get more at Wheeling. Great hotel discounts and food coupons. Might be a little further but at least they reward you for being loyal.
That's my beef. Can someone explain to me how something like that happens?
