    I have recently booked my first ever comp so am after some guidance as to what is expected please.

    I have booked 3 nights comp and $400 free play at Wynn and another 4 nights at $129. Realistically, what is expected from me in slot play terms if I am to get this offer again? It was from marketing after a couple of hours there last September where I played max bet on penny slots for a couple of hours but lost maybe $100 total after playing through all my wins.

    I realise this comp is to test me out and I certainly don't intend spending more than a couple of hours a day playing slots. Will/can they charge me anything over the agreed rate if I don't meet their expectations? What do they expect in terms of points accumulated or coin in?

    Many thanks for any advice.

    By the sounds of your habits and what you expect to do on this trip, you won't meet their expectations. In other words, you probably won't receive another offer like this from them. That said, you also won't be charged anything beyond the agreed rate either, so enjoy your trip.

    To ease your mind, I played there once for several hours during March Madness last year, but had a pretty bad experience in their pit. I had not planned ever going back, but I got my first comp from them a couple months later. I visited Vegas with some friends mid-summer, and decided to double book there so my friends could have the room. They gave me a great high floor room with spectacular view. I didn't play one penny in their casino. I wasn't charged one penny for the stay. I now receive $129 rate offers...

    While Wynn is easy with the initial teasers, they are a tough nut to crack on follow up visits.

    I had heard from some that Wynn required 5 trips of history before they really started allowing the big upfront comps, and this jives with my experience. (initial teaser offer excluded of course).

    On the other side of the coin, they are quite tolerant of a low-play trip. Once I was established there, they did not cut off my future offers for low and nearly zero play trips.

    I have zero-played and low-played a large number of offers at numerous casinos and the only place I've ever had renege on an upfront offer was NYNY (and I didn't even low play them!!!).

    I would not try to earn future comps at Wynn and I would not worry about being charged for the teaser offer trip. Have fun!!!

    We did this same comp in October. I played their money and only a few hundred of mine as the machines there were really tight. In December, we got the same offer again, three nights and free play. Even tho it was Wynn, we actually ended up in Encore.

    No one was more stunned than me to get another offer.

    Wynn/Encore will not charge you extra if you do not meet their expectations.

    Generally to get comped rooms in the future from Wynn you will need to earn about 5k points a day at Wynn.

    Enjoy your trip!

    I think you folks who do the slots thing at the Wynncore and get these deals with comped rooms and free play where maybe you get some food credit as well are getting a pretty good deal. Baccarat is the only table game I would ever wager my money on and all I get is the usual $129 a night and probably $100 in food credit. That is about it. Yet just logging into my Red Card account and checked my P/L statement, those nice gestures of discounts don't really matter much. The profits more than paid for themselves. Love playing at the Encore from 2 am to early mornings. Great staff and I get to play alone which adds to my edge/advantage. Plus they allow unlimited free hands.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your replies, at least I know that I'm not in for an argument when I check out!

    I have a gambling budget of $1k a day but get bored after a couple of hours so if its not spent it goes on handbags instead!

    One last question, am I now "an invited guest" when I check in (I've read the queue may be shorter) and the $400 free play isn't on my confirmation, should I call them and get it in writing?

    Thanks again, really excited now even if I feel like a fraud taking their freebie!

    Yes, you can use the invited guest check in line. Sometimes it's shorter, sometimes it doesn't make a difference.

    They are not going to put the $400 free play in writing on your confirmation. However you can call up ahead of time and verify that the $400 is what the player's club desk will give you in free play after you check in and go to their desk.
