Does where I play matter?

    Staying at Monte Carlo for 5 nights in September booked through my banks cc reward points program.

    Planning to play at some mix of MGM, Bellagio, Aria and Monte Carlo.

    Mostly poker, craps, blackjack. Maybe stick $20 in a VP machine for 30 mins to wait on people, etc. Obviously bet size and time played matters.

    But would it be better to concentrate the majority of the play at one property to receive the best offers in the future?

    You should also check to see at what level do they start tracking your play. Not a table gamer, but I'd imagine places like the Bellagio would require higher minimum bets than the Monte Carlo.

    as a table player you can walk into the high limit room at luxor and do 200$ a hand and you will get a visit from a host asking you if you would like free rooms or anything we can do, you do that play at belligio and they dont blink

    I would say yes, and this is based on my totally unscientific personal observations:

    Based on MGM properties, where I mostly like to play:
    You can gamble at any of those to build points and establish your tier... and you'll get offers based on that. However, if you concerntrate at one place, you'll likely get more, and better offers from that place. For instance, the last 3 trips to Vegas, I stayed at the Mirage, and by far have more offers for the Mirage than I do at other MGM properties.

    I usually stay at Mirage and play some $10+ slots and some craps, last trip 7/13 met some friends ate at Sage Aria afterwards played craps there got hot played for 3 hours @ $100 average bet also played some slots. So last week I call to see if my play will yield a free room for an upcoming trip. Aria mlife guy says sorry can dicount you a little because of your platinum card but for a free regular room you would need to play $150-175 for 4 hrs per day. He did not care that I played 19 hours of craps@ $100 spread at other Mlife properties. MC on the other hand offer comped Spa suit $200 fp and $150 f&b and 2-1 shows.

    Yes, especially for MGM properties. You'll receive the most offers from the casino that received the most play.

    $100 average bet at craps may sound like a lot, but that's really not very much at all. If you want comps from a new resort, play slots.
