The “you know what” hit the fan last week with my article on pari-mutuel race comp points.
Not to be out done, the emails came rolling in from numerous race books, so in fairness I will give all of you a venue to shout out.
The first email that came in was from that hidden (well not so hidden) gem in North Las Vegas, Jerry’s Nugget. Talk about value, the place is all about that – especially for us lowly horse bettors.
Mark Dufty, the head race and sports book guy, not only offers the highest off the board parlay odds in the world but says Jerry’s has the highest daily comps rewards for pari-mutuel wagers of anyone, not only in Las Vegas but in the entire state of Nevada.
Jerry’s will give you one comp dollar for every $25 wagered, every day. Mark tells us it is even more valuable because the prices at their top notch eateries are a bargain, such as Jerry’s famous coffee shop where you can get their top notch prime rib plus the great daily specials at Uncle Angelo’s Pizza.
Great food at a super price, but it gets even better! So how much food can a person eat? Well, if it’s food you don’t want you can use your comp dollars to shop online at world famous Zappos.com.
If you happen to take a little ride down on Saturday or Sunday there will be free homemade donuts and coffee in the race book at 10 a.m.
