    I was in Vegas for Memorial Day weekend this year. During that time I spent a few hours at the Wynn. I got a call a few weekends ago from someone there offering me 3 free nights and $500 in slot play. I am going back for a stay at NYNY September 16-20th which is my normal place. I have $900 in free play and RFB and limo. What I'm wondering is if I don't put in a huge amount of play at the Wynn will they charge me back on the rooms? I'm really happy with my host at NYNY and really don't plan on changing home properties. I feel like with my level of play I get a pretty good bang for my buck on comps.

    No they won't charge you. What they offer upfront is what you get. They are expecting you to play and play a lot. If you no play them (except your free play) they will probably cut off your offers. I'm assuming you play slots, how often to you go to Vegas? Maybe save the Wynn for another time and see if you like it.

    Probably not worth it burning the Wynn bridge for 500 in freeplay. Unless you plan on at least one heavy night there.

    I'll play the free play and will still probably play pretty heavily for at least a day. I go to Vegas 4 or 5 times a year usually. Primarily play $5 and $10 slots. The day I was there in May this year I probably was there for about three hours. I was surprised at the offer honestly.

    I was in a similar situation this past spring. I got an offer I didn't really deserve from the Wynn. I double booked that offer with an offer from my home base(MGM). The offer I received was 3 free nights with comp upgrade to a Encore suite with $300 FP. I didn't play that much when I was there on the offer and my new offer is $129 a night with no FP. Not a big deal for me though because I just don't feel at home at the Wynn. Don't get me wrong, it's a beautifully luxurious hotel, just not my cup of tea.

    You should call the Wynn rep back and see what about just a one night stay what type of free play you could get. If its close that would help since then your heavy play will be on one day and count one night instead of 3.

    I think I'm going to pass. I'll play some this trip to see my next offer.

    FYI - this is less of a double booking question and more of a "low play" issue. All casinos send out offers for only one reason: "To get players into their casino". As they are better able to determine your normal play, the offers will go up, or go down. If you visit on that offer and only play a little, they will figure out that you are less of a player than they thought. And FUTURE offers are then a reflection of that.

    As to charging you for the room... never heard of it. After all, what "rate" would they use? And of course you would have to AGREE to that rate in advance, right?
