I got an e-mail from Atlantis, and they are having a contest to get you to enter the Reno Gazette best of Reno contest. They have their own geteway to the contest, and say they are giving away $1,000. You got to fill out the survey. The idea behind this e-mail contest is that you will vote for Atlantis, and then they can brag all year long about how good they are. ????

If you are going to enter survey anyway, might as well enter through Atlantis. Very Happy

I am SHOCKED!! To think a casino would actually CHEAT in a contest? Well, as long as they are just cheating the other casinos, I guess that's ok.

I'm sure they would never cheat their customers.

The Peppermill has hawkers with long canes hooking patrons walking by the passport desk to fill in the surveys. They bribe them with a drawing of some kind (money prize, I think). Sorta reminds me of the bald guys in white garb at the airport.

I got that e-mail, too - I don't think they're encouraging you to take the survey more than once, just that you vote for Atlantis in every single category.
It's still somewhat shady, and it reminds me of the admonition to "Vote early and often".
Perhaps this will lead to a survey category entitled, "Best phony survey that favors the casino most brazenly touting it"

Thanks John. We are fine and preparing to depart for a 3 week vacation. We'll celebrate our anniversary in LV on the kids dollars.
My son (in-law) says he will put up the first 10 bucks on the live Texas Hold em game. Wonder how long that will last a novice like me.

Yes, but not the deluxe tropical pool in the expansion plans. They're using the old pool, minus the mountain goat and waterfalls, separated from the immediately adjacent construction by a glass partition. You can see a part of it in the lower left hand corner of the view from the convention center web cam:
