In a few weeks me and a couple of friends will be staying at Mirage for a week. One thing I have never really done is get a players card for the hotel i'm staying at, mainly because i don't really understand how they work, and what you can get from them. I know that you hand the pit boss your card when you start playing but what happens after that? Do they keep track of what you are betting? At the end of your trip are you supposed to hand the card back and see what you can get? Is it worth it for the amount of money i will be gambling (see below)?Apologies if these questions are a bit daft, its just something i've never thought about too much. Any info would be appreciated. A little info about my trip which may or may not be relevant: - My total bankroll for gambling is about $1500 (same for the other 2 guys) - We will probably be doing the majority of our gambling in Mirage - I will be playing Blackjack mostly (and playing $10-25 a hand) - Will also play a bit of roulette and 3 card poker/let it ride - We will be going downtown one night for a cheaper night out Depending on how things are going, i do like to put a big bet on now and again, like a $500 hand of BJ, or $500 on red etc. Thanks for any advice in advance!
