    How common is it for a low roller to actually meet their host? I was assigned one after my last trip (I am on the very low end of being host worthy) and booked my August trip with him. What are the chances I will actually meet him?

    Probably depends if you want to go out of your way and meet him. The host that was assigned to me at the Linq (even though I'm already assigned to Hunter) tracked me down at a slot machine and introduced herself. I usually will go to PH and say hi to Hunter, who is my actual host, but I don't HAVE to see him. Usually we communicat through text / email / twitter. But I always like to say hey and thank you at least once a trip.

    I have met him each time we go to PH since he became my host. Last trip we had a great dinner with him. Will invite him to dinner again next week when I am in LV. Enjoyed talking about non casino life and had a few martinis (his day off). He is always extremely busy but I try to see him to say hello when I am not asking for something. I also make sure he understands that I know I am not high on the food chain so I don't try to monopolize his time. Most of the time we communicate by email and text.

    Meeting your host and building a relationship will help you in the long run. I'm very friendly with my host and I'm not a high roller by any means. I'm sure that I've received more comps than my play warranted because of this. I suggest making an effort to meet your host.

    Always nice to meet a host I think and put a name to a face when wanting to book an offer

    Our host at MSS usually makes it point to find us at the bartop VP machines at least once during our trip and say hello.

    I met mine last month but i went out of my way to meet him
    i got a 2nd comp that i doubt my play warranted actually ( i usually skip mlife and play at cosmo)
    so I'd say it's worth doing

    Its hard to tell whether you want to meet up with him or not.

    But either one is easily doable.

    Our old host at Caesars would never come find us, but our new host finds us at least once a day and we usually have a meal with him.

    My preference would be to meet him, but it's not a big deal if I don't.

    I would consider myself a low roller and we have met 2 hosts we have booked through. Our host at Luxor usually meets when we arrive and if time provides we meet up for a lunch during the trip. When I booked through a host at MGM he came out and introduced himself while we were playing slots.

    I have met both of mine. Very nice folks. I find it endearing that Hunter is so friendly and wants to say hello. It's that little extra that goes a long way.

    My host at V/P always finds me at a machine during my visit to check on me and make sure my stay is going well. He will also randomly text me during my stay to see if I need anything.

    My only host is at the Aria and I make a point of seeing him at least once per trip. Usualy drop him a hundy plus some cocks for the Mrs
    He does also come see me when I'm sat playing a machine for any extended period just to check up on me that I'm having fun.
    Nice enough guy, doesnt do a lot for me other than organise my stay which in my case is normaly over a week twice a year but for my BR I think my room comp is more than adequate and I dont have any big requirements over my room anyway :blowkiss:

    OK, I know the old joke is two nations divided by a single language, but what the hell does that mean?

    At Cosmo yes. She happened to be the host on duty at the desk in the HL room and said I should go thru her for future trips.

    Hunter just booked me a room but haven't met him.

    I've never met the one I have in vegas. Sometimes I book through her and sometimes I don't. However I looked her up on Facebook and I'd definitely like to meet her now. I've met my host up in tahoe before. Another hottie by the way.
