For a private plane, what is the general threshold?

    As in a credit line? I figure a minimum of $100,000

    For reimbursed airfare, maybe. For a private jet, I'm thinking mid six figures at a minimum, and more likely seven figures. Even then, the credit line alone isn't going to be enough. You're going to have to give them enough action to justify it.

    From the West Coast it's 500k - 1m depending on which casino you're talking about, don't know about East Coast or Chicago but presumably it's going to be more unless you're an established player. As kid74 says you'll have to hit a certain theo normally 1/4 of the credit line (or lose the whole CL) over your stay otherwise they'll make you pay for the jet.

    To be honest if your talking CETs big places 1 mil marker is about where you need to be, and same with MGM mirage resorts.they will fudge if they know you as a good gambler, or good loser. Station will do lower and I have seen guys with $250k rollovers. They might move the plane for 200k in social, the biggest thing is your past play or host.

    If a first time player, I am thinking it will be much more difficult. Just like getting regular airfare covered. You can have a million dollar LOC, but if you play $1 Video Poker... well, you see the problem.

    Rated players are another story.

    If you go thru some of natedog's TRs, he talks about private jet requirements for the Wynn. In one report, I believe he elected to have a van bring him and his group in from LAX, as he didn't want to feel obligated to meet the necessary play requirement for the plane.

    The lowest used to be MGM properties at 500k line (you have to hit 125k theo). They just bumped it last year to 1m line (250k theo must hit). I'm talking about round trip from California btw.
