    I just got back from a 6 day trip to the Atlantis Resort & Casino in the Bahamas and had an interesting conversation with a casino services host. I booked a casino rate thru the host and their requirement was 4 hours of TOTAL play in the casino for the entire trip. No minimums etc..., just 4 hours of total play.

    At the end of my trip I was told to talk to a host to see what other comps could be taken off the bill after checkout. When I went there I was told that I didn't qualify for any additional comps. 0. I was a bit surprised and asked what they had me rated for. The had me in for 31 hours at an average bet of $95. They said that I barely covered the cost of the discounted rooms and that they can't do much for someone who wasn't an above average player. I found this somewhat ironic since they only asked for 4 hours of play total.

    So just a FYI for someone thinking about going there. A $100 a hand player is average and they will do nothing for you. I shouldn't be surprised since there were $160 million yachts scattered all over the marina but I thought it was interesting since they only asked for 4 hours total and there were a lot of $10 table game players there.

    yeah, i called them a while back and they offered me a suite, but no F&B upfront and no airfare upfront. they said they used to do that, but too many people took the free airfare and got lost on the beach for a week and never played a dime.

    but 31 hours at $95 should have been at least enough to comp the room. they seemed to be very tight to me to say the least, but sounds like they screwed you over a bit. that would have gotten you about $750 in comps at any normal casino.

    Wow! $750 in Comps? Seriously? I'm clearly missing something here. I play more time in Vegas than I did here being that it was a tropical vacation for the wife. Would you say that this type of play gets some of the offers that people are listing for Bellagio and Aria (3 nights free, FBL limo etc...)?

    I ask because I just made another thread trying to figure out why my comps were so miserable for CET properties. I got a lot of great answers, especially that playing tables at CET was my first major problem.

    I swear, after reading this I'm convinced that someone pressed some type of death button on my CET account years ago and flagged me for horrible offers.

    well, you have to realize that play was over 6 days. 5 hours a day at $95 average, would generally get you a room comp and maybe some F&B at most MGM properties. but it could also score you a sweet corporate offer with something like 3 nights in a suite and $300 F&B per day.

    Of course, places like Atlantis would not offer as many comps. I would think regular return trips would not be as common as Vegas, Atlantic City etc

    I recently got an offer sent from them not sure how I showed up on their radar.
    I thought about but I just love Vegas so much. Maybe next next year if they keep sending them.
    I send them an email and told them to keep me in mind but I had already book my travel for the rest of 2012.

    I have wandered over to Atlantis a few times when we've been in Nassau on a cruise and found the vibe of the casino (pretty much each time) as indifferent and rude. Most of the dealers seem genuinely unhappy to be there. When I last played there (some time ago) I was averaging between $50-$100/hand, and couldn't even get the time of day. I had the feeling that it requires north of $500 to get their attention.

    Lately, when we're there on a cruise, I just call my host at Crystal Palace (Cable Beach) and he hooks me up with a day pass, lunch, and a room for the day. If I just show them a little black chip action they are thrilled - of course, the place is deserted compared to Atlantis!!

    In my dealings with Atlantis I've found that, just like most Vegas casinos, your best strategy is to exploit Marketing Offers. If you get an offer of 4 nights, some airfare reimbursement, and some food and beverage...that's about as good as you'll do. Additionally, much like a CET joint...machine play goes farther than table play. I just wish they had some better VP paytables.
