Long-time reader, first post. I go to Vegas about four times a year, always for three nights. Usually stay at the El Cortez where my room is comped for moderate craps ($68 across) and BJ play. Three trips ago I walked down to the Nugget and started to play some $25 BJ, above my usual comfort zone. After a few hours the pit boss told me I needed to meet a host, so he sent one over. She gave me her card and said I should email her next time I was coming and she might help with a room. So, a couple months later I emailed her and sure enough, she set me up with a basic room for three nights. About that time I started lurking on this board and came to learn that $25/hand probably wasn't the play my GN host was hoping for to keep giving me a free room, and that my initial offer was probably just in hopes I'd step it up. When I arrived for that second trip, my bankroll took a quick beating and I only played about 12 hours at $25/hand, and then went down to the Cortez and finished my trip at craps. After the trip I figured I hadn't come close to earning another room comp, so I didn't ask and for my next trip I was back staying at the Cortez. The little BJ I did play at GN that third trip was even smaller: $10-$20/hand. By this time I figured I was long past room comp territory at GN, but last week I emailed my host just to see what would happen. To my surprise, she gladly comped me three room nights next month, and on a Thur-Sat at that. Not a word about my low playing her on my last two trips. Any idea what's going on? Is the new comp just a teaser to try and get me back in? I figure that's the case, cause I sure haven't earned it on my play I don't think. Not complaining, mind you! Thanks for any thoughts and see you at the tables March 20-23!! Reverb.
