    i do know that the alhambra casino gives a voucher for $ when a certain # of points is reached. 2000, maybe gives you $20+. they give it to you in cash and you are not obligated to gamble it.

    alhambra does not give "free play" similar to places in vegas, atlantic city, biloxi, connecticut.

    discount and bogo coupons at the players club for food and for match play.
    _____________________________
    marriott casino, i do not know about free play, but they have points that accumulate for marriott restaurants and other marriott charges.
    _____________________________
    crystal downtown allows you to accumulate points to turn in to cash. similar to alhambra.

    that's about all i know, since those are the only places where we play.

    Radisson gives points toward additional points for play. Use your player card at tables or slots and points accumulate. Redemption is a little machine near the casino host counter which reads your card and spits out a cash slip that can be used in additional slots. Not like the old days when play could get great dinner comps from the casino manager or points with the slots for merchandise. I still wear my 'The Casino at the Radisson' hat that I got years ago.

    I do think most offer match play when you sign up.... but it certainly isn't retirement money!

    How do you receive the match play, special chips or a coupon or some other method?

    match play coupons are in many of the magazines and daily newspapers, and also by signing up for players club cards.

    chip collector, when you are in aruba, where do you play?

    Sadly, I haven't been back in awhile. But, when I used to go, I would try to visit every casino I could (I could hit most of the Palm Beach casinos in a single night). I would spend most of my time, though, at the two casinos that had poker at the time, the Excelsior and The Casino at the Radisson.

    If you ever end up with any extras you don't know what to do with...

    Back when I used to go, the Occidental used to offer match play chips by turning in coupons from one of the tourist magazines. They used no cash value chips from the Americana and the Palace (former casino names at the same location) as their match play chips. These were all used by them:

    One trip, the Casablanca was using older chips for match play promotional chips. The first was originally a Venezuelan currency chip and the second was the original $5 Casablanca chip. They were never used because the resin was poor and they were hard to see. The company, Chipco International, gave every casino that ordered chips at that time refunds, but the casinos were free to keep the chips. The Casablanca never used them except for that one promotion. I bought one chip from them, intending to get more, but they pulled them back. When the Casablanca was replaced by the Palm Beach Casino, the managing company of the Casablanca sold most of the chips to the collectors markets, including backup chips the collectors had never seen before. This washed out $5 chip was not among the chips sold. As far as I know, I am the only chip collector who has one of these in their collection.

    I particularly like no cash value chips because they are tough to get. I like match play coupons, though, too.
