    I have a table host. I spend about 85-90% of my time playing tables. The remaining percent I like to play HL slots. My friend got me addicted.

    Do table hosts consider slot play went comping? Or do only slot hosts consider slot play?

    thats a trick questions.

    as i posted in my letter place some places as a table player you must have a host to get comps where as a slot player its basicaly all off your card.
    thats the best i can say.

    i know they can look at it a bit slot play shows on your card where some places tables dont and rember if you loose 1o grand in a half hour on the tables your descretionary comps are totaly differnt than slots.

    i know its not the best answer and im sure some will have more insite.

    also depends how much you loose on slots . im sure if you take a large loose anything can be a factor they want your bussinees and there not stuppid if you loose 50 grand on a machine they will do what ever to make you happy.

    Thanks for you info paper.

    I was curious since my host always gives me my theo in terms of table play. He never gives me slot play.

    My last trip, I played an okay amount of slots. My coin in was probably around $10-20K in a few hours, not really sure since I never got a number. However, my average pull was probably around $50 a pull.

    I'm about 50/50 VP and BJ. If my Wynn host doesn't consider both tables and VP then Wynn is the most generous joint in town (and I think we all know that ain't the case).

    Hosts consider all play, not just the play where you spend the majority of your time at. However, the average percentage they comp you at would be based on your main type of game that you play - in this case tables (some places comp differently for slot or table players, some comp the same).

    slot is all done but computer, you get rc or ec or what ever the proprerty does and it goes directly on your card where tables dont always, not all properties have tables show up on your players card, Palms doesnt, boyd u need a host for tables as all there slots is thru there card system ,so thats why i said its tricky. you might actualy have to ask you host to look at your other play as im notsure how it shows up in there computer.
    i know tables they just pull up.

    I can't think of any reason why a table host wouldn't consider your slot play.

    I think they have table hosts vs slot hosts because the two kinds of players tend to be different kinds of animals. And a table player's variance and swings in theo are likely to be bigger than a slot player's. A table host is probably a little more in tune with that, whereas a slot host should be mostly on cruise control.

    Do you have a Player's Card and did you stick that into the slot machine?

    Usually, the Players Cards are for slot machines but it seems casinos are trying to consolidate to cut costs. I know at the Palms I had to have a Player's Card once Southpoint lost the contract to Palms and Cantor got it during the Caesars Debt Buyout.

    Last May, I did the old take my players card to Club Palms and tell them how to give me my Sportsbook comp. A pain, but I finally got the hang of the comp game again.

    I bet my next trip will be completely different again.

    I pretty much do the same thing.
    When checking out,I usually ask my host how much play they recorded for mr.
    He always says the table games xx hours at $ xxx average.
    Then he adds you also had some VP and slots.

    It all goes into the mix for your theo.

    Trust me Paper, I am quite certain in what I had to do at the Palms. I did not have to give my Player's Card at the Sportsbook but I had to have a Club Palms Account to have my old Sportsbook comp transferred once Cantor took over the Sportsbook, otherwise all my comp was kaput.

    For years, the Sportsbook was a completely different comp system than the casino Club Palms.

    I do not have a CET card. Yet.

    Hopefully, this clears it up for you.

    Not sure about Palms but most places don't really consider bets in the sports book toward comps.
    Even though CET takes your card it really does not figure in comps unless your betting tens of thousands.
    You can get all the drink tickets you want but don't count on sports betting helping your comp account.
    The exceptions might be if you are a local and play regularly.The horse players get treated slightly better also.

    When I see my Wynn host on the back end she checks my play, she comments on what they had me at (time and bet level), then says "and you had some slot play" and then we see what she's taking off.
    I don't play that much on slots but she rarely takes the slot credits away, only a couple times after I had real good runs on the tables.

    I had a host when I used to stay at Bill's and then he got moved over to the Flamingo. I asked him about the difference between table and slot pay. He told me that table play takes longer to be recorded and only as accurate as the pit crew working at the time you are there. He stated that slot play racks up far more comp points than table play does. There is only so many hands of BJ in an hour at a table but much more hitting a button on a slot machine.

    your theory works only for cet as they are a slot based comped place , mlife is the opposite. but you still have to factor in a big bj loss of 10 grand in 20 minutes will generate alot of desratinary comps out off cet as a slot is all basisacly done by computer for cet.
