Not sure if this makes a difference in your decision but I read that they started enforcing the play in casino rule. which is one of the reasons I never took advantage of that deal.

Are there DP's that show this as accurate? Meaning when your status drops and you rematch it you can get again?

F.A.Q
Can you use the benefit yearly or only once?
Update: You can basically do the benefit once yearly. They might not offer it again in 2020 but if they do you should still be eligible.

I went over the comments now, I don't see anyone mentioning enforcement, the opposite, DP's are that it's not enforced. (My own experience too but it was more than a year ago).

I'm pretty sure you get $100 in free play so if you don't mind sitting in the casino getting free drinks, it's a win-win anyway and not worth the risk of getting charged.

I went about 2 months ago and I decided to ask the casino guest services. I was told I would definitely be charged if the requirements were not met (not that they necessarily have any idea if that's true)

Also if it's your first time in Bahamas - just a tip - every car service I've taken tried to up the price at the end of the ride. For example, in the airport there are people in charge of steering you towards a ride and they tell you a price, but the driver tried to change it once I arrived at hotel, so make sure you reconfirm the price with the driver when you get into the car.

There's currently a kosher pop-up at Atlantis for Yeshiva week, and CoLive put out an article saying the hotel wants to make it hear round staying in March. That could be a game changer.

Could someone explain the process to get the 3 free nights at Atlantis? I'm currently. IHG plat that should match to Wyndam elite. Once I do that, what do I need to do to get the voucher for Atlantis?

Haven't been yet... Going this Pessach though (April 2020) and from what I hear it might be possible to take a Jitney from NAS airport to the downtown area and from there catch a taxi to Paradise Island / Atlantis.

A regular taxi from NAS to Paradise Island should be around $40; more $ with more people and luggage.
Don't say no... say "Yos!"
