🎙 Podcaster Potluck with Gamblers Roundtable
December 17-18, 2021
An unprecedented assortment of sessions on all aspects of Travel and Casino loyalty.
Leverage the use of hotel points for big weekends like Super Bowl and New Year’s Eve in Atlantic City and Las Vegas. Learn when you should and should not use hotel points. Hotel Status can bring you lots of extra perks; we’ll show you how to achieve hotel status without having to spend countless nights qualifying.
How do they work? How do I earn points and status? Can I achieve the status level I desire with less play than required? We’ll cover all the hot casino loyalty topics and touch on all the major programs including: Mlife, Caesars Total Rewards, Golden Nugget, Resorts, Tropicana, some of which have partnerships with travel programs.
It’s not easy using frequent flyer miles/hotel points or understanding the programs. We’ll try to crack the code and teach you about earning points and spending points wisely. We shall touch on programs that include United, American Airlines, Delta, Southwest, Spirit, Marriott Rewards, Hilton HHonors, Starwood Preferred Guest and much more.
Can you really travel for free by signing up for the right credit cards at the right time? Yes! Absolutely. We’ll show you how to travel for pennies on the dollar and how to use credit cards that help you earn points, get free trips and maximize your vacations
Like travel reward programs, casino loyalty comp programs can be quite mysterious. We will help you understand casino comp earnings and ratings for table games and slots/video poker so you can play less and earn more casino comps and free rooms.
It’s one of the best games in the casino, but to truly benefit you have to understand the rules and how to choose the right machines. Only play slots now? Understanding how to play and why video poker might be a good idea in addition to your slot play, or all by itself.
There are some programs out there that can provide benefits and fast track to status and access. We’ll touch on a few including Priority Pass and FoundersCard
Do you worry about carrying money to play at the casino? ATM fees are outrageous in casinos. Casino credit is free and easy to apply for and use. We will tell you why it might make sense for you.
There are so many opportunities to earn points every day. Don’t miss those opportunities. You will find out how to earn more points via shopping and everyday purchases that you can use for future travel. Hey, you are going to spend anyway, you might as well be earning points.

What is a Slot Pull?
In a Slot Pull, a team of people invest equal amounts of money into a single slot machine, and each take an equal number of pulls. The winnings from the set number of pulls is then equally distributed amongst the players. In short, it is a way of playing high denomination slots (with all the excitement that goes with it) whilst spreading the risk.
To participate in the slot pull you must do one of the following:
– Buy a ZorkFest ticket
– Stay at Plaza using the ZorkFest group rate and promotion
– Buy a ZorkFest Oscars VIP Dinner
