Hi all,

I'm going to genting next month 26th july , planning to stay for 3 nights.

I have genting membership from 5 years ago, and I'm still receiving emails from genting regarding my miserable 75 points unused and available.

My question is, can I use these 75 pts for a free room night? Subsequent nights I can get free room from the casino floor right?

I am noob, so please advise.

TYVM in advance.

Better book all 3 nights from the Genting website in a go. It saves you the trouble of check in/out and your time. You can use the ETG machine to convert your balance GP for NN play.

The gates before the escalators that goes up to the 3rd floor skysilver that you normally have to scan your card were left wide open when I was there on the 22-24 May.

I only went to the Skysilver area to play when I was there to avoid cig smell, not once were the gates locked or manned by security. Anybody could go in anytime then

When I went during CNY period, it was also left unopened. But that was because they have an 'Open House' during the CNY period to allow non-Silver members to enter.

You mean they extend the 'Open House' from Feb to May? :s22:

Hollywood is already reopened. Just get someone to sponsor you for the day to try the Peace Cafe fried rice.

Ask for sambal chilli to go with the fried rice. Shiok.

Hope they have. Last time I went they run out of sambal chilli.

No more free rooms from casino play. So book for all nights. Think GP60 for 1 night standard room offpeak and GP70 for 1 night deluxe room.

No more 60GP for non peak.

Different member different rate?

My rate for Jul was 60MYR/60GP for FWH Standard room, 70MYR/70GP for FWH Deluxe Room and 80MYR/80GP for Y5 Deluxe.

I missed those days when you can book a room at FWH for 5GP. :(

To be fair, I was still getting free room for 3 or 4 nights last year. (off peak period)

It was only this year when Uncle Lim starts to pull back on the freebies.

I blame Dr M for raising the casino levy. :s13:

Free rooms still got laa... nowadays their new comp system is very individualistic/ targeted...same card-type but not necessarily same benefits depending on yr gaming activities.

If book via booking.com, I only can check in via reception?

Yah. Look for the kiosk assistant. Show them voucher and they need to key something into system before kiosk can accept. They will help you all the way till get room key.

Get ready your cash RM10 per room per night. Somehow I never succeeded in using credit card to pay for room tax. Twice got error. Can use at restaurant but can't work for kiosk.

I'm not sure about the "Open House" thing, just that during those days I was there the gates were wide open all the time. I think maybe because it was the offpeak period? I went in May to avoid the hordes of family going up this month.

The sms I received got say Skysilver will become Skygold only from 13/6 though. I guess probably the first few weeks/months of becoming Skygold they will strictly enforce the entry to gold members bah. I'm beginning to think it is their ploy to make silver card holders go up to play more to try to upgrade to gold status and get addicted.

Anybody there now can see if the gates to Skysilver club are still wide opened and unmanned during this June peak period?

Yeah...was there during 1st week of May - i can vouch that the Silver Club was open to general public round the clock even up to that point of time.

It was meant for promoting awareness abt the existence of such an area @ lvl 3. Was nvr meant to be permanently open to public.

If even that's converted to Gold then there'll be 2 Gold Club areas at Sky - including the existing Gold Club...wonder whether they will open up the partition between both sides then.

I suspect that you are right. Rem they reduced the requirement to qualify for Gold this year from 500 TP to 300TP.

However, it's no use if they continue to stingy about giving free rooms. That the basic. I am quite sure most of us would not bother to go up if we are only given 1 night.
