Beth has an interesting story of using the $50 Trick at Bally’s. Beth had three rooms on one booking, so instead of $20, she tried $50. Ultimately, a holiday weekend, length of stay, and quantity of rooms may have led to the final result.
“I checked in for four days on May 28th, celebrating a birthday. We had booked three rooms, so I sandwiched a $50. The clerk was very nice. She told me that she would be happy to check on an upgrade. She said that she could upgrade two rooms but not three. She took the $50, completed the check-in, and off we went to our rooms. Long story short, we all got the same kind of room, and it was the same as the room we booked, two queens, with a view of the high roller (not strip view). It was Memorial Day weekend, and our stay was for four nights.”
