This is my thoughts for low and medium rollers. Don't do it! Don't get hooked into the comp system! I am the average tourist, and play all day long with the average bettors. 2k bankroll- 2 times a year. At my local casino, I will bring $300-$500 for a 1/2 day(or busted in a hour) of gambling. In the past, I would get frustrated that I could not get a free buffet after going on tilt and losing 1k in few hours of craps play. At the end of my 4 day stay I would have earned a measly $8 in comps. WTF, I lost $1400 this weekend playing craps. The $8 was playing drunken slots for a hour before bed. Sir!, you you have not earned in any points by going point -seven-out at craps for 3 straight hours. What! I was the biggest tipper and lost my little boys lunch money! My mom would sit and plays some old nickel slot, 1 line at a time for 3 hours and she is snockered and earning free cruises. It appeared, Me, and my table game money does not count. Glad it did'nt now that I reflect. I came to the conclusion about 20 years, that they do not like table game players, because of the risk of loss. They prefer to consistently bilk $40 a day out of all the retired elderly persons in the world, than to treat me to a free meal, and then see me sober up and win (or lose) grand playing UTH or craps. My last comped room and meal was when my mother served me dinner and I passed out on her coach in my late 20's. No lie! I usually take 2 grand for my 4 day Vegas trips. 1 grand is not enough, and 3k is too much to lose. I go once or twice a year. My simple goal is too double it, so i can pay for my next trip. Usually go every March and then late summer or early fall. I hit my Local casino 2 times a month or more. Been to a gamble at multitude of US casinos at least 365 days of my life. My next trip to Vegas is in March. After reading about VP on this site I decided to go to my local CET property. then give super boner a whirl (Horseshoe, Ia). I broke down and went to get a TR card. They said I had a account, but no activity since a Harrahs stay in 2006. Must've given a free shirt away. That made me smile. I kind of wish I had not been to a CET prop since 2006. I got the card, and played some VP and slots for a almost a hour. That old frustration of looking at how slow the credits build up when losing was too much to handle and I chucked the card. You should as well. I actually love that I have no allegiance. I book wherever I feel, or that has a good price, or wherever a friend wants. We gamble 18 hours day for 4 days, but it could be anywhere playing almost any game. (except 6:5 BJ or VP bartops that are a 7/5 or worse). Yes we will get some free drinks, but that is it in 20 years. Do I miss them, Nope! I am FREE!!!! It is awesome to sneak in win a few hundy and move onto the next joint. If we win, we eat good, if we lose we keep on drinking. I have seen most every little dive bar, and nice casino in town. I believe, I have accomplished more winning and fun, due to not being stuck to my "home" casino earning those effing comps. Try it! Book a deal on Expedia. Get a car, and just enjoy the entire town. Be spontaneous. Yes, hit you favorite spots for a few sessions and then enjoy a lot of new spots. You think you love Vegas now. Trust me, if you get out of the Comp loop, you'll love it all the more. Schools out, GO Play!!!!!!!!!!! PS-High rollers and Whales, Please disregard this rant.
