    It would help if you posted your average bet, BR, games, ADT, etc. That way you can get a recommendation for the right level or type of host.

    Also, what, if any, is your Wynn play history in addition to Gamesman's question?

    I'm just looking for an e-mail address for a regular run of the mill casino host, nothing extreme.

    As said earlier... more information might help someone decide to share. Run of the mill could mean anything from $50 a day to $10,000 a day.

    People are probably a bit hesitant because you posted 2 threads back-to-back requesting host contact information from Cosmo and Wynn. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but without more information about you / your intentions people are unlikely to divulge that information. I mean heck, my host at V/P has his contact information on the website, I'm still not giving it out to people just because I don't want to be responsible for wasting my host's time., which for a lot of my friends is exactly what I'd be doing if I gave out the referral.

    I don't have a host at either Wynn or Cosmo, but if someone asked me for my host's info at V/P I'd definitely want more info before I gave it out. Otherwise, if I were you, I'd just contact the properties with the information on their respective sites and make your request. Realistically, its probably the same result you'll get from contacting a host directly.

    Just my .02.

    Well, I never figured host information would be such a secretive thing.... Last I knew, a hosts job was to talk with people who have an interest in gambling / staying at their resorts and making a decision on what (if anything) they wanted to offer that individual. Also, I never knew that it was looked upon negatively to contact more than one host to see who would offer you the best deal to stay / play at there resort. Sorry for the STUPID question and wasting your time.

    By the way, I don't feel like I need to lay our my entire gambling history / patterns just to possibly receive an e-mail address

    In all fairness, it's a reasonable question to ask these things of you if you're asking the board for advice. If you came to me and said give me the name of your car dealer, I would first ask you what kind of car you're in the market for, and what your budget might be to steer you in the right direction. If you say you haven't been feeling well and you asked for medical advice, I'd ask what's wrong before giving an opinion as to who to see. Information is plentiful these days. A quick google search can find you what you're looking for. The fact no one volunteered their actual host info on a public forum isn't surprising. Do you know how many folks pester a host per day for free this and that, only to be unwarranted solicitations based on unrealistic expectations?

    For me, I think your question was harmless and absolutely fine. The follow up answers initially were fine as well. As far as I'm concerned any question (within reason) is fine and not out of line. I would want more particulars as mentioned in the first few replies. I have turned many friends from here onto my hosts at different casinos but I knew these people well. I know my host at least would definitely give you alot more upfront comps and so on with my referral as some here can attest to. I wouldn't however put my name on the line for someone I didn't know. I'm sure you understand. If I were you I would go to the websites or make a call or do some research (like you are doing) and cold call a host and explain your situation. If you don't like him or her call back and talk to a different one until you find someone you like or at least feel comfortable with. Good luck.

    You're looking at it wrong.

    You are asking for the contact information that may not be public knowledge for a person that helps us. If we give you their contact information, and you don't fulfill your end of the deal, it could not only reflect poorly on us.

    It isn't a stupid question. It isn't stupid to see who will give you the better offer. It is stupid to say that you'd like my FP doc's info if you have a skin rash and really should be seeing a dermatologist. I'm not recommending someone to my contact unless I feel that they are right for my contact.

    Having a host, when you cut it down to bare bones, is a business relationship. Everyone wants something from the host; the host wants something from his players. It's a symbiotic relationship, but relationships of all kinds are personal. And it's true that a lot of people get pretty close with their hosts. A good host can keep you coming back to the a property. So really the way to look at it is like a business contact. And people don't just give those out freely. If all you need is an e-mail address, they tend to post them on a site. When I first got in touch with hosts at properties I played at -- when I was below hosted level -- I'd just pick one, e-mail that host, and lay out what I needed/questions I had. They were always helpful in either answering them or connecting me to the correct person.

    Now, if you've got very specific requirements that someone on the board might be able to help you with, I'd lay that out and see who may be available to help you. But there's nothing wrong with just a cold e-mail to a host. That is their job. But it isn't people's jobs to give our their host contacts. Another $.02.
