    Hello Everyone!

    My first "WOW" Trip to Vegas was in 2005. I turned 21 in 2003, and didn't have a chance to come to LV until my friends Birthday. We ended at the grand opening of the Wynn Casino (My Red Card number is really short :Þ) After that I was there once a year or so, and a few times in 2006-2008 since the Economy was doing well. Shortly after the industry I'm working in took a dump along with the rest of the Economy.

    I work for Toyota at a dealer, and with the Recalls, Earthquake, Tsunami...I wasn't out and about much.

    Bring about 2013 when things are picking up until now, I've been back to LV a few times a year.

    2015 I was in LV nearly once a month (missed July for a festival in Belgium).

    My favorite places to stay are the Wynn or the Cosmopolitan if I have my choice. I often end up going overnight (12 hour trips) with friends, so we may end up with a overnight room (parking space for bags and a shower prior to work the next morning) at places like the Luxor, Treasure Island or the other mid range hotels.

    I visit mainly for the music, I've loved Electronic music since 1998 and with the current bubble of "EDM" DJ's in Las Vegas, and the combination do dirt cheap flights from San Francisco to Las Vegas, it makes it really reasonable to fly out and have a good time.

    I do like to gamble, but not as much as the Pre-Recession era as that put a long lasting scar on how I spend money.

    Pai gow is my game of choice paired with Vodka & Redbull. My budget isn't anywhere near what most of the folks spend (75-200 a hand) for a few hours, and I'll typically cash in about 1000-1500 of chips in a day.

    What brought me here was that a friend of mine who visits just as much is a MLife Platinum member (possibly based on spending). So I wanted to learn more about the Comps system.

    I don't have a casino host, and I'm not sure If I'm of much use since it's not a TON of money, but I've always been interested on how folks get comped rooms, and even easier entry into clubs. I may be pretty fortunate since Cosmopolitan sends me invites for midweek promotions (Free 2 night stay) a few times a year! So yes, I'm here to see how I can maximize my Las Vegas experience.

    Thank You to all the members of this board and the contributions that I'll be reading.

    Cheers and see you at the tables...or at the club...or at the bar... or .... :drunk:

    PS. If anyone needs any advice on Toyota related Finance/Prices/Warranties/cars feel free to reach out and I don't mind being a consultant to help out.

    Haha, I don't think I have access to the quick reply yet, or an edit. I still have these AntiSpam pictures to complete, and I can't even reply to a PM sent by a board member. :poke::eek:

    I'd say it's worth a shot to check into having a host. Nothing to lose. Welcome to this awesome board!
