Several years ago I visited Cosmo. I thought the casino was dark and not really appealing, hotel reviews at the time often mentioned housekeeping issues, and I felt the club crowd was prioritized over players. I never stayed there. With new management and recent changes, however, I'd give Cosmo a second look. My home casino is V/P, and I'd love to get feedback from those who play and stay at both. From a property standpoint, Cosmo offers balconies and is convenient to center strip. V/P is a short walk to W/E, room updates are ongoing, and you have two casinos to play at instead of one. -Beyond that, what has your recent experience been with the rooms and service on the hotel side at Cosmo? -How do the Cosmo restaurant offerings compare to V/P? -On the casino side, what has your recent experience been with host relationships, marketing offers, backend comps compared to V/P? -How do you feel the Grazie and Identity programs compare for slot players? -While Identity offers VIP check-in, it appears not to offer food and drinks like the Grazie Gold/Platinum lounges. Is there another players lounge at Cosmo? -Does Identity have a shopping event similar to Grazie Gifts? -How do the slot tournaments compare? It sounds like Cosmo may have the edge with smaller events and larger payouts. I took a look at the club 'comparison' chart on the Cosmo website. It indicates Platinum Identity members earn twice as much free play as Platinum Grazie members. This is misleading, because it assumes only a 5% slot hold, which is low for the average player of penny and dollar slots. Likewise, it takes $125k coin-in at $2.50/point to maintain the 50,000 point Platinum tier with Identity. At V/P, your earn points at a higher rate as you move from Purple, to Gold, to Platinum, and those points, unlike Identity multiplier points, do count towards your status level. It appears easier to maintain status levels at V/P. The complimentary companion room nights could be a useful Identity benefit. Any additional thoughts comparing the two would be appreciated!
