The Worst Casino Promotions Ever...

(From the Las Vegas Sun) Slots for Tots.

One would think that even the greenest marketing employee would see red flags with a casino promotion under that name.

But one Las Vegas casino didn't last year and the result was a prime spot in Dennis Conrad's Hall of Shame.

Conrad, president and chief strategist of Reno-based Raving Consulting Co., on Monday presented the best and worst casino marketing promotions of the last year at Casino Marketing 2004: The National Conference in Las Vegas. The three-day event concludes today.

Conrad, who has critiqued casino marketing promotions at similar conferences for seven years and now is regarded as the Mr. Blackwell of his field, spotlighted the good, the bad and the ugly in an hour-long presentation. He praised several of the best campaigns -- many of them staged by Las Vegas companies -- but didn't name the casinos that fielded the worst ones.
