    Pardon the dumb question but who are the " hosts" that people are booking with or getting comps from ? How are you meeting/contacting them. Is it an invite only sort of thing ? When I stayed at the Luxor a casino employee gave me her card and said to call next time I booked for a deal. Same kind of thing ? Thanks in advance.:nworthy:

    Hosts are generally casino employees that are responsible for taking care of their better players. You don't need to be a high roller to have one. There's no set rule on how big or small of a player gets one.

    If the card was for her specifically, then yes that's probably a host.

    Hosts are generally able to comp stuff up front to entice you back to their property. This is separate from what you may be offered on the casino's players club site. I don't have an assigned host at any property but I do make it a point to swing by the host office or high limit room to talk to the host on duty and see if there's anything they can knock off on the back end. I never buy a room or have meals that I can't afford but I like to get what's coming to me if anything. I don't gamble for the comps but I will certain use the system when due.

    They can also do things for you like make reservations for a restaurant, get tickets to a "sold out" show, etc... They have a little bit of discretion so a pleasant attitude and a smile will help but ultimately it comes down to how much do you gamble and at what stakes?
