    Hi everyone! My first time trip to mirage is coming up. In years past when I stayed at Paris....bellagio and alladin...I remember deductions coming off my bill during the week there. Whether it was for a free or reduced room rate or food and drinks that I might have charged to my room. Is this still done during your stay? It's about 6 years since my last trip and I remember message boards recommending you charge everything to your room and see what comes off during your stay. It most definitely worked that way then. But...like everything else...lots can change in 6 years. Plus this is a new property for me. Thanks for any input.
    6 days and a wake up! Yay!

    You may need to ask at the Mife desk for the host on duty unless you still have one from previously.

    I don't think you can count on it happening automatically. Apologies if I've misunderstood your post, but that's how I read it.

    I'm also assuming that you have an old players club account you will check is still active in the Mlife system.

    My final thought is that you may find the comps tighter than before.

    Since ECs were introduced, it takes a lot more play to get more things comped off of the end of a comped stay. We always ask but we are usually told...you were given your comp up front on your offer so really all you can use are your ECs. We're low rollers so for those who gamble more, results may vary.

    Just got back from a 2 night stay at Mirage. I booked two rooms, one comped and one not. Room charges consisted of a Cabana and food and drinks at the Cabana. Played UTH for about 5 hours total and threw away 1k on some $25 and $100 slots. Avg. Ante bet on UTH was $30, which rates as a $120 bet per hand. Host on duty comped the $400 cabana and left me with a $373 final room charge tab, which includes the second room. Definitely worth talking to a host at the end of your trip.

    Edit to add: I forgot to mention, the host on duty did not touch my express comps.

    When you write about "speaking with a host" do you mean speaking with the person working the players card desk?

    The on-duty Host station is a small office located outside of the high limit slot room, by the Pai Gow tables. It is separate from the mLife Players Card desk.

    My host at the mirage works in the mlife counter area. His title is executive slot host. However I don't play slots and he treats me very well with my table game action. I go to the counter and ask for him or call his cell phone to arrange a meeting when I either want something or am checking out.

    Host on duty

    Every casino has a "host on duty" for guests that don't have a host or if your host isn't working that day. The host on duty is still responsible for their clients but will also be around to help others.

    I've never had a good or bad visit with a random host on duty since they always operate by the book.
