Which do you prefer, to have the front end comped (room) or back end comp (room plus extras), or a mix of both. I am planning a trip, and am in touch with a few potential hosts, but I do not want to underplay what is expected or required. I am looking to grow into a bigger player, and frequent vegas more often, and establish a good gaming relationship. I would like to have some comps, but don't want to feel the pressure while gambling, for example betting a certain way/time/amount just for the rating. For some reason I feel that with the mindset of I have to play an average 150$ bet for 4 hours for a room comp, I feel that I could struggle with this pre-notion. On the other hand, if that was not the case, I would feel much more relaxed and definitely see myself letting lose and betting higher when the time is right. In that case is it better to just be natural, pay for the whole trip upfront and see what can be taken off at the end of the trip based on the ratings? Usually my trip would end on a weekend, Sunday most likely, not sure if any host would be available that time. Does anybody have any advice on this or personal stories? What is your story of how you became established with your host? Thanks in advance!
