Cosmo Comp with 1 hour of play

    I thought I would share my Cosmo experience.

    History – I stayed in a TERRACE ONE BEDROOM when Cosmo first opened on a comp mailer and no played. I didn't even get a players card.

    In November 2013 I signed up for a players card (Tier matching CET) but never played. I thought it would be good for line pass at Holstein’s.


    Last week on the way out of town I decided to stop and play for 1 hour at either Cosmo or Bellagio to see what I would get in the way of offers. I do love CET and they treat me very well, but I also like to stay at other properties and not play as much.

    I chose Cosmo and played $5 slots for 1 hour and $1 Triple Play VP for 15 minutes. In total I earned a little over 12,000 Identity Points.

    One week later to the day I received an email offer for:

    Exclusive offer for you

    STAY | 2 complimentary nights
    Enjoy 2 nights in modern luxury high above The Las Vegas Strip.

    TASTE | $100 DINING CREDIT
    Dine on us at the restaurant of your choice in our award-winning collection.

    GAME | $705 IN IDENTITY PLAY
    Game on us in our vibrant casino where the latest in technology meets the familiar games you've grown to love.

    I am assuming that this is a teaser offer as I only played for a little over an hour. It is funny that it is $705 in Play. What is the formula that calculates this?

    This offer is very close to my offers from CET where I usually earn about 15,000 TC (before bonus) on a 2 night trip.

    I know with the pending sale that the comp program will be likely changing.

    Are there any slot & VP players that could share their offer experience with Cosmo?

    I like the idea of not using a host. Does your Cosmo Host do anything more for you then the offer?

    Thanks

    I play tables, so I don't know how comparable my experience is. My host always starts with the corporate offer, but generally offers me a better room than whatever is on the corporate offer. With that, if I ask for something more than the corporate offer, she has always come through. So I have assumed that she is instructed or trained to extend the same corporate offer, but obviously has the leeway to give more if I ask for it.

    Hope that helps

    I play mainly slots and my experience with them is that they are generous with slot players. First visit (each year 2x) was 2011 and I emailed a Cosmo host with my CET information and he provided 4 comped nights and a review of my play for any FB on my last night. Played slots ($1 & $5) approximately 4 hours a day. After review they comped my $900 FB bill. 2012 same room offer and nothing up front. Playing time about the same and had my $1,800 FB bill comped at the end.
    2012 stayed elsewhere. Earlier this year I received an email from a different Cosmo host looking to get me back. I indicated what I was receiving from Bellagio and they mateched everyhting upfront so I'll be heading back mid June. So if you put in the time I think you will find what they offer to be fare, at least that is what I've found.
    Good Luck

    I have some friends who get comped night offers from Cosmo and they tell me they only put 10k points on their identity card after playing 5 hours a day for 2 days so I'm not surprised to see you get that offer based on only a hours worth of play where you made 12k points. :) I usually only put 20k points a day or so on my identity card and my comps at Cosmo these days are better then at M-Life. I'm hoping the new owners don't change the comps too much, especially the new perk for gold and platinum members that provides 2 free nights and 2 free companion nights once a year that don't count against our comps.

    I have a host at Cosmo but I haven't used him since he forgot to cancel out a limo pickup on the airport when I canceled a stay at Cosmo and instead decided to stay at Palazzo instead. When I arrived at the airport I had both drivers talking to each other trying to figure out which one was taking me where. I just book through VIP services now and it works out just as well for me. At the end of my stay I usually check out via phone and they contact someone at the player's club desk (not my host who works nights) to take off my room charges.

    12,000 Identity points on slots is $18k coin-in but if you tier matched to Gold or Plat you earn 3x points so 12,000 points is only $6k coin in.

    $705 is really close to your theo for 2 days based on that play. So perhaps two nights they assume 2 days of play at $6k coin-in. I assumed 10% edge on slots though it should be slightly lower for $5 slots.

    I just checked. Last trip in 3 days I had 18k coin in for 22k points and 6 hrs tables 100 hour. I am loyal and go 2x a year. My offers seem not as good

    My comp is much lower but I was shocked all the same. I played $15/hand at BJ for two hours and then the next morning had coin in of about $600 on VP. After about a month I got an offer of two free nights. If that is standard, it has to be the easiest comp for a nice property.

    They know I am Seven Stars at CET and they want my play. I think that is why the offer was so good.
