Less is More – Big Play Casino Gambling Day More play in fewer trips is going to net you the most
To me, a recreational gambler is someone that considers gambling an avocation or hobby; an enjoyable way to spend free time. The recreational gambler has a certain amount of money budgeted for entertainment that they chose to risk by taking on lady luck.
While the upcoming changes, effective 02/01/18, to the Caesars Total Rewards program, is a massive slash in benefits, some of the changes certainly make sense from their perspective. I try to play devil’s advocate and understand the business purpose for these decisions. Some I get, while others baffle me when I try to view them through the bean counter’s eyes.
