Sister Marie Thornton gambled her life away playing the one-armed bandits in Atlantic City, losing nearly $1 million she pilfered from the coffers of upstate Iona College, where she worked as a trusted financial officer.

Something is not right with your story. I go to the TAJ and i am a signature player. If you are playing enough to get 60 in slot play you would have at leat 1 or 2 hundred in comps i have never heard of them giving 20 food credits except to the smallest of the small players. If you are spending 100 dollars you do not get weekends or holidays this i know. As for gifts they have different levels of gifts they have the midweek gifts they give to anyone who plays even a little to lure them in. They also have weekend gifts that are given to higher players. True the TAJ is generous but get your story straight.

If anyone was going to hit the jackpot it should have been her. Thought Nuns have a connection with God. Even Atlantic City can bankrupt the lord!!

They will always give the 2 nights mid week because the real estate is there. The casino is hoping you will spend more, and lots do. Weekends they are more crowded especially Saturday night. Rooms are at a premium then.
its not hard to be comped

With one less casino belonging to Trump it is easier for them to attract NEW patrons with better comp offers;

If your a high end payer and not getting your fair share of comps and gifts from your casino then it is time to move on to another casino that will appreciate your business.

As for us we left the beautiful, but stingy Borgata for the generous offerings of the Taj.
We hardly play anything at the Taj compared to what we played at the Borgata and are so well taken care of with rooms, free food comps, and generous slots dollars.(oh and gifts too)

It is too bad for those of you who drop thousands at your so called loyal casino and then complain you get little in return.

Take our advice leave and go to another casino where your business will be appreciated more.

i was at Borgota for 3 years i left for different reasons. Borgata does not give low end gifts they give around 4 or 5 gifts a hear to higher end Black Label players but they are very nice gifts. I am at the TAJ now and i admit i get everything they do give those midweek gifts which make people feel good but the gifts they give on weekends in the weekend offers are very nice gifts usually recently they gave a Kerug Coffee Maker, they had a wine tasting and i received 200 dollars in wines of my chooseing and 200 in slot money that night and the next day they gave a Convection Oven. The following weekend they gave Macys Gift Cards which are always very nice.
When Donald Trump was more involved with the casino the gifts were better, the parties they threw were wonderful, the shows were great and we got invited to every one that we wanted to go to plus The Donald would fly in on this helicopter and have dinner at the hotel almost every weekend. The hotel went down for awhile because of the corporate people who didnt understand big players but they are trying now.
comped well

We also love the taj, and r treated quite well, the room offers r standard, but the holiday gifts and cash rewards r superior to any casino We had been loyal members.
The worst casino for offers was resorts, even though we made premium level we never saw anything worthy, we moved onto tropicana, nothing more then a fruit bowl from our slot host, and bingo, and a few gifts here and there, then we left for Taj, wow r we impressed, offers every day, wether it be for mystery comp dollars to gifts, to slot dollars, double room offers. We cant find a better deal!
Thank you TAJ

Thank you so much for letting me know this. I get the same offer for spending more. I believe the casinos are sexist toward single women.

Just like cops-casinos are legal criminals. Taking your $$.

I hope Ms. NUN finds the true way to heaven.
