    Why don't you go first, so we can see the format you are looking for?
    Also what do you mean by subtracting comps?

    Sounds reasonable..

    I have lost about $20,000 in about 30 trips..I have got back about $2,000 in comps..So, my magic number is $18,000 in 30 trips..There u go

    Last year at CET properties according to statements -34k, MGM - 47k, V/P +27k, Cosmo -18k, Boyd Gaming +12 The M -33k South Point +6k Station Casinos + 13k.

    So far this year I lost 14k at Aria, about even with CET and +23k at V/P

    I have never asked for anything but a regular room, I still don't have a host anywhere. The host assigned to me at V/P it turned ugly quick when I canceled on the reservations twice and asked me to make up my mind about staying there. I lost it pretty quickly over the phone. I did meet hunter at PH (wife thought he was gorgeous) but apparently they have under a middle eastern program even though I am not middle eastern (first name is Peter)

    Over 120 trips in 41 years and I have no f*cking clue. I can tell you for the two years we lived in Vegas, we came out about $12,000 ahead.

    Can I subtract the $10 in chips from the New Frontier? I found the chips in my desk drawer this weekend. I never remember gambling there.

    I'm still calculating, but here's my 2014 numbers not counting travel.

    12 TRIPS

    rough numbers

    before comps -$5000, after comps +$5000

    I'll have a better idea once I get home. Half my numbers are on the home computer.

    According to the convention I am expecting,
    + positive means amount lost,
    - negative or within brackets means amount won

    Over 300 trips and I have no freaking idea....

    I can say the casino has won. No way to build that many casinos.

    was in Vegas one weekend Shreveport on Tuesday and Winstar on Friday and Sunday.

    for life time Can't even guess...

    I don't come close to keeping track of what I get in comps. And lifetime over a hundred trips in the past dozen years, I would only have a rough guess. I do know last year was a six figure loss. But each of the two years before that were six figure wins. This year is a winner so far, but still a long way to go

    I don't get comps as I don't gamble enough.
    Even though most probably wont care as i'm a low roller I figured out roughly my losses in 8 trips.

    Trip 1 won $800
    Trip 2 won $300
    Trip 3 lose $2000
    Trip 4 lose $700
    Trip 5 lose $500 (but came home with a wife)
    Trip 6 lose $1500
    Trip 7 lose $1000
    Trip 8 even

    Total - lost approx $4600. don't regret a penny of it!

    I couldn't tell you. We gambled a bit more when we first started out, but even at that, our several-day budget for the two of us wasn't even one betting unit for some people here. I'm sure we're upside down to some small degree, but certainly have also benefitted from the comp system. But everyone benefits from the comp system. Non-gamblers even benefit because room prices are rather reasonable in the grand scheme owing to that big money mill downstairs the house calls a casino. And I think we all can say this: We never got dime one "back" in Hawaii or Palm Springs or wherever for all the vacay/entertainment dollars we've spent over the years.

    Yes, too many trips and have no idea of history over 30+ years. I do know I was a huge loser over the first 27+ years with an occasional win or two. I always say I built a few towers in Vegas mostly for GEEZERS back in the day and Bellagio from losing so much at Mirage years ago. The last three years I have been keeping track as it is easy for me because it is always the same give or take a little. All numbers are according to my pocketbook not what the casino has me for. They have me winning but not this much. 3 years ago, 2012, 9 trips, +17k ish, 2013 12 trips +65k ish, 2014 +100k ish and so far this year + but I have many trips to go.. Comps are always about the same over the last 3+ years. 4k to 7k ish a stay on avg.. The winning is Pure Luck with discipline and timing mixed in. All of the above is from Wynn and Aria. And yes PT, FK, PP, BRON, N, STEVIE, WANK and PLEE im buying! Even you shifter! Take it while it last!

    Damn dude. You should have hosts and even though you're just asking for a regular room I hope they have offered you more.

    I don't know my numbers off hand but based off the casino statements last year I know that playing video poker turned what would have been a 5-figure win for the year into a 5-figure loss. I only started playing VP to get higher tiers quick and easy....so that's the price I paid for ego and the ability to save a few minutes in lines.

    Had a good time though... :wink2:

    FYI, in the computer it lists out your exact total lifetime theo, comp usage, etc.

    of course they also track your actual losses, but it's almost always wrong each trip, so lifetime is way off.

    ask your host some time if you're curious.
