    I know that CET is typically a better place to get comps for a low to mid-range slot player but is what is the chances of getting a decent return out of a mid-level place like the Monte Carlo or NYNY? Mostly interested in room comps. I would imagine you could do better at the Excal or Luxor but not sure I would want to stay there.

    Stevie D has a pretty good host at NYNY. We were just there and a guy was playing $200 a spin, but was still getting his butt handed to him.

    Stevie has seen some pretty big jackpot hits there though.

    I spent two nights at Monte Carlo in August and did not gamble at any other casinos - don't think I put that much money through slots (not that I remember, anyhow...). Played mostly BJ at $5 a hand and the foam-dice craps machine at close-to-minimum levels. My bankroll was $200-$300 per day, but that was split up between BJ, sports betting, and slots.

    I have a winter offer from them for 2 nights comped Sun-Thurs, 30% off regular rates Fri-Sat and $50 freeplay. My guess is that if I had played more slots my offer would be more attractive.

    (I guess my advice is to go to the casino you want comped rooms from and give them the majority of your play)

    really depends on how much you play...

    "what is the chances of getting a decent return out of a mid-level place..."....pretty open ended question...

    if you play 5 minutes? zero chance.
    5 hours? probably good

    CET is definately easier to get a room comped but their rooms at the lower tier properties are terrible. I find Mlife really hit or miss on the comps but the rooms are much nicer and i think monte carlo is pretty easy to get comped if you play there. how much do you typically bet per spin and how long do you play for in a day?

    All about coin in and what you play. If you play penny slots a good guess would be $7,000 coin in per day at NY or MC and you'll probably qualify for a free room. If you only play VP it would be closer to $9,000.

    I like the location of the Monte Carlo. Maybe worth spending a day throwing some slot action at them just to see what happens. Thanks for the info.
