    Heading out in a few weeks always been CET but seems like my room comps have dried up . Now staying at Monte Carlo and Aria (Thanks MyVegas) 2 nights each and 1 paid night at Paris $100 for a Friday (not bad I guess for Friday)
    I know not to play for comps but its a nice thing to have comped rooms and only have to deal with airfare.
    Anyways from what I gather on this board is M-Life and CET are really cracking down on comps and should I just do all my play at the Cosmo, or give Aria a chance and hope for some offers from M-life.(Never really gave any action to either). Or should I try and re-establish myself with CET.
    I dont think my bankroll is enough to spead around and just want to get the most for my play,Downtown wont be an option the wife likes the strip :rolleyes2:

    Well, what do you play? Slots, tables, VP? How much is your average bet?

    Generally, $1500 won't get you much at Cosmo or Aria unless you're really lucky and can make it last a long time.

    With that bankroll, I would say that CET is by far your best option for on Strip room comps. My bankroll isn't much bigger than yours for a 3-4 day trip, and I am comped at 7 days a week at all but CP, Paris and PH, with free weeknights and a mix a free and cheap weekends for those three.

    Other options may be a lower level Mlife property, or V/P. Several people have recently mentioned running a hundred or two through a slot at V/P and receiving offers for three free nights. However, those are probably just to get people in the door....if you take them up on their offer and don't play at what they consider a decent level, the offers will most likely stop.

    5 day trip with a 1500$ bankroll if you are a slot player thats more than enough for future comp room with CET

    This is a key point. The casino marketing offers take a lot more into account than simply how much money you have in your typical bankroll. Length of play, type of game, frequency of trips, history of "low playing" an offer, etc. will affect future offers.

    That said, I feel pretty certain that a $1,500 bankroll for a multi-day trip to Las Vegas will be much more likely to produce future room comps from CET than from mLife or Cosmo, particularly if you play slots and can stretch that bankroll out over several lengthy playing sessions. It's my impression that Wynncore and Venetian/Palazzo look for similar play as mLife, though I personally got back on the V/P comp radar with just one hour-long session betting $10 per spin in the Venetian high limit room during a recent visit.

    You could also try the Trop. They seem to be more liberal with comps than the other properties.

    Our last trip, my BIL and SIL joined us and they only brought $1000 between them for 3 days, and they get 3 free night offers.

    Cosmo will not give you much. They suck, in my book.

    I have a similar budget and CET are the only strip properties I can get comped anymore although as a Gold Card player I still have to pay the resort fees.

    My MGM comps dried up when they went to Mlife. I've only ever gotten rare marketing offers from the smaller strip players.

    Thanks for the input, I do some Table games but I have a real liking for the VP bartop at Gustav's
    So from the replies it appears to keep plugging with CET since I have some value even if not much, and I hope I can hit something for a change.
    I can still do My vegas for some room comps for future trips since I hear the M-life resorts are better than the CET and it will be my first time staying with them.
    I will run over to the Cosmo and try the $100 promo if they are still offering and maybe get enough time and coin in for at least 1 small petty offer (would love to give the wife a few days there as a surprise since I would never spend the money to stay there) I'm too cheap :eek:

    Tropicana Would Work

    I second the Tropicana suggestion. A lot of "how you look" to wherever you play is dependent on how things go for you; if you lose fast, you might not get offers anywhere. Since we go on a smaller bankroll, this is always a potential issue.

    The Tropicana has been consistent with offers for three nights and some free play even when we don't put in all that much time/money there. I have trouble playing for endless hours in the same casino unless I am winning--if things are bad, the best part about Vegas is that you can try somewhere else in just a few minutes of travel time...

    Anyway, the offers have been good, they always put us in the Paradise tower, and the hosts will usually comp the rooms even before the offers come out. They also waive the resort fee (so far...those damn things are getting worse and that may change someday).

    Have fun wherever you play!!
