    Thanks! I wish I had this info for every casino. They always just say, "just keep playing how you normally do". I dont know what that means.:drunk:

    Great stuff littlepiggie!

    And wow video poker players really get hosed with those numbers since it takes 5X more coin-in to earn an identity point in the first place!

    Wow with my horrible luck, I am looking at thousands in losses to get a room that costs a few hundred. Slick deal!

    Its probably about the same as far as table play goes. When I first started getting comped suites at those properties, I was averaging around $500 per hand at bac (of course, I played more than four hours per day, so not sure how much of a difference that made). That play got me corner suites at Aria and a one bedroom penthouse suite at Bellagio

    Wow, those numbers shock me. My play is way way way less than that, and I've always stayed in a comp terrace studio.

    So explain to me how I get an offer for 2 free nights after spending only $100. in penny slots a couple years ago. I used the offer this past January. I am NOT a high roller, played no cards or tables at Cosmo. They sent me an offer every month this year for 2 free nights. I will take advantage of the offer this coming January.:thumbsup:

    Just a guess, but I suspect they are incentivizing you to secure your future business. I never had this experience with Cosmo, but I remember a couple years ago a buddy of mine was receiving incredible offers from the mgm empire, even though he wagered half as much as I do. But I suspect MGM either already knew (or at least assumed) it had my business. They were trying to lure my friends that goes to Vegas once a year to come out there more often

    I've gotten two offers within a couple months for 2 nights comped in a terrace suite. Using one in a couple weeks and the other will be put to use sometime before it expires in May. I bet we see more offers from casinos in the winter than the summer anyways. If I play at them exclusively, I may get another for the summer.

    Cosmo is sending out a lot of teaser offers now, which represent fantastic value up front to anyone who gets them. The OP very helpfully posted the level of play they are looking for to comp you on the back end if you are coming in on a paid rate.

    And, as you are a penny slot player, any casino wants you and the huge house edge you are fading them.

    I hope I get a teaser offer. I ran a few hundred dollars through their slots in October. It'd be nice to move all my play from Mlife to Cosmo.

    A lot of people are getting host level comps vs marketing offers mixed up



    Low play can get you a marketing offer. It may also be consistent mailer.

    The values that littlepiggie. ( thanks excellent info). Are for host level comps
    That means you will get an assigned host and all the benefits with that.

    If all people want are free rooms then his posted numbers do not matter.

    The VP numbers seem off to me. 15,000 points would be $112,500 coin-in per day. That level of play will get you a Sky Suite next door at Aria but only a basic Terrace Studio at Cosmo? On my recent two night stay at Cosmo I gave them $100k coin-in per day and I've got a host all over me now. I probably won't head back to Vegas until Spring, but I'll see then if my action translated into something better than basic accommodations.

    I played blackjack there probably 3 or 4 times a couple years ago ranging anywhere from $100 to $400 per hand. I never received any offers at all. I haven't been in there in a year or two. This week I got an offer for 3 nights, $350 fp, and $100 food/beverage. It looks like maybe they are really changing their stance toward attracting gamblers...
