    Angry Tampa Hard Rock drops parking fee

    Apparently the THR received enough grief that they dropped the unpopular $10 parking fee. They claim it was because they care so much about making their customers happy. In reality they were losing business and the police were getting complaints about patrons parking on neighborhood streets to avoid the fee. Now that construction is almost finished on the new hotel, casino, garages and pools they have REALLY tightened the slots to pay for everything. The compact with the state says the payback rate is 85%; it's closer to 50% and dropping. I go their once a week and I do better finding money than winning. So far I have found a ticket for $371 that hundreds of people walked past but didn't want to pick up. I also found one for $145 . And last week on the way to the men's room I found a $100 folded up on the floor. It's the only way to make money in this place.

    I was there 2/27 and won 11,000.00 on buffalo gold and saw someone in over 10 grand on lightning link. Going back Tuesday night, hopefully it will be profitable.

    It's good to see something backfire on THR for once. To the regulars, all of whom have taken a beating for many years now, the $10 parking fee was a pretty bold move on the casino's part.
    Shocked that it is April 1st and I have made a profit for the year so far.

    Dropping the parking fee just means they are going to tighten up the slots even more. I had 80 free play today, so against my better judgement, I went. Stopped and took out 300 before I went, so I didn't have to pay the 5 buck atm fee. Dumped the 80 in Lotus Land. Straight to 0. 200 on Buffalo Deluxe, not one bonus or buffalo win betting 2 bucks, straight to 0. Last 100 decided to 1.60 on Dragon's Law. One bonus paid 4 bucks, then straight to 0. Tampa really needs another casino and competition for this place. I don't hate anything, but hate this place.
