    Hey Guys,

    Longtime lurker, but this is my first post. We are close to the gulf so Biloxi is our destination of choice. It's not Vegas, but it works.

    I play $50 BJ and similar in 3 Card and dice. I never pay for a room and most of my food is taken care of. Why does everyone assume they should pay for nothing? These places are business and can't give away everything, right?

    Huh? :(

    Are you asking why people think they should get everything for free? I'm not sure anyone believes that. Most people understand casinos are business, but at the same time they will try to squeeze anything out of that business that they can. It happens in an service or entertainment industry that exists. Are you just saying that Beau Rivage's customer base are cheap asses? Are you asking if all your food should be paid for? What are you saying? What are you asking?

    No, I'm not saying people are cheapasses at all. I guess I just don't understand why it seems that everyone is chasing comps. It appears that most of the time that all some people are concerned with. I apologize for not explaing myself.

    comp levels at the Beau are much lower than Vegas. you can get a room comped at the Beau for $25/hand or less. you can get a Cypress suite comped at $175 avg bet. it's pennies compared to the nice places in Vegas. you can hardly get a regular room comped at the B for that play. that's why you get your room and most of your food comped so easily.

    Interesting numbers about the Beau shifter. My first trip I went for two nights and my play was $300avg for 17 hours. I just came back from my second trip there during the second weekend of the shopping event. I requested a suite but the host told me that I needed a 20k loss to qualify for a suite during that busy weekend so I just got a normal ocean view room as I care more about the f&b than room. Having said that, I only got $100/day for non gourmet restaurants which basically didn't cover anything I ate which included jia, memphis q and room service. Nevertheless I still ate at those places as I figured I'd get them to comp them at the end. My play for this trip was $418 avg at 18.5 hours and again for two nights. I feel like I'm getting a little stiffed from there.

    yep, the shopping event was insane. if you read my TR, Tellafriend and i both got bumped from our gulf view suites and ended up with a city view. it was BS but that's for another thread. anyway, you earned about 2k in comps for that play, so unless you had some huge dinners, you definitely were undercomped. but that's the problem at the Beau. there's nothing to spend stuff on unless you take expensive wine from the restaurant. and since BR Prime is closed Sunday/Monday now, that's almost impossible. 2 trips ago i had 12k in unused comps and they just went to complete waste because i couldn't get any wine before i left since it was closed.

    Comp-ed or late charging account?

    Brand new to site. Great posts & threads.
    A little hesitant to post my question. I attempted to private message - but it would not allow me. If I am sharing too much info - I do apologize.

    Quick question - hoping to gain some insight / thoughts:

    We visited the Beau, for our first time, a month ago - 2 night stay out of St. Pete. Overall, I was pleased with our stay.

    We bounced between the BR and the HR; however I gave / chased / lost most of mine at the BR. I sat at a slot (I know, I know - my husband wouldn't dare!) for at least 4 hours (& I know this because every hour on the hour a list of names were called for some sort of drawing). I am guessing I lost anywhere between $300-400 at the slot during that time. Other than that - I bounced from slot to slot for short periods of time throughout our stay.

    I wanted to make reservations for this month and realized that they have not charged my account for the stay in June (we booked the night of the 19th and left the morning of the 21st). Are they taking their sweet time charging my bank account? I cannot imagine they would have comped the entire trip (I asked my husband today if an itemized bill was under our door the morning we left - he said "no" and unfortunately, I cannot remember if I signed anything at the check-out desk). Any thoughts?

    Thanks a bunch.

    Yeah I did read your TR but I figured it would be a little easier when I went as I came on in Sunday which was the last day for it. No big dinners here, it was just me and my gf and we don't drink while eating so our total bill came out to $270 or so. Yeah didn't get a chance to try BR Prime as they were closed the two nights we were there. Yeah you're right about not having too much to spend stuff on there. Oh well the only other time I'll go there is if they have some promo thing that's too good to pass up.

    Sorry to the OP to slightly hijack the thread.
