[AMA Request] Representative from Casino Tribe Casino
Why should somebody choose to gamble at the Spokane Tribe Casino over Northern Quest?
What are your target demographics and how do you plan to grab their business?
What assumptions were made going into opening night and how did those assumptions differ from reality?
What explains the pace of Sun Club membership lines?
What additional information should we know about Spokane Tribe Casino?
Additional Information: (1) What does the casino see as its comparative advantage over Northern Quest? I assumed it would be a shiny and new (albeit smaller) casino but a lot of the machines are dated. I know a lot of people are assuming better odds/payouts. What's reality and what's fiction? (2) Opening night is hardly indicative of how the casino will look during an average evening but the amount of people on drugs was surprisingly high. Do you think it was a one-off situation reflecting the opening night event? Is it simply more noticeable in a smaller space? Does the casino have any specific plans to make sure patrons feel safe/comfortable? (3) Opening night created a 2-hour wait line to enter in 34-degree weather. Once inside, there were only more lines. Northern Quest became unexpectedly crowded with all the people unwilling to wait. I spoke to one couple who waited two hours before immediately leaving because it was "standing room only" once inside. A lot of people have ill-will on first impression. What happened? (4) The casino setup a large amount of tables to get people signed up with the Sun Club so I decided to wait in line. After 30 minutes, I had moved ~5 feet. At that rate, my line would have taken nearly 2 hours at best (so I left). What does in-person signup involve and why weren't the lines moving more quickly? (5) Is there anything else the casino wants to say about opening night or what to expect in the future? There are a lot of disappointed people but I suspect most people understand that the experience only reflects that single unique night. How should future patrons manage expectations to make sure they have the best experience going forward?
Parents 50th Anniversary coming up be appreciated....I Am Stumped, want to do something special, ideas?
Thanks in advance. I want to do something special for them but am stumped. Any ideas would be appreciated. Parents coming up on 50 years of marriage at the end of January 2017. They have been in Spokane last 20 years but not originally from this area. Dad retired after 30 years from Air Force & Marines, mom was there every step of the way. Our family is originally from Hawaii but parents already go there a couple times a year. Looking for party/gift/unique ideas split between me and my 2 siblings. Not sure on budget. We have tossed around a few ideas: limo service with dinner at Churchill's and night at Davenport; or rent out a room at a restaurant and throw a surprise party with family and friends, etc.....but nothing concrete yet. They are both up there in age and active but pretty vanilla (except my mom, she's Korean haha). Dad likes classical music, art, painting; mom likes the Quest Casino (VIP and goes 3x a week). Neither one of them drink or smoke anything. Thanks
