Is Mlife card even worth it for small bets?

    I have a mlife account and have just booked an offer through there site but I never have used my card while playing. I believe my hotel bookings have my card linked with them but don't bother with anything else. Should I?

    I bet small. I may buy in at a Roulette or BJ table for $50-100 or so. Is it even worth it? What will it get me?

    I do bet a little more on sports. Can I still use it? Again my bets are fairly small. $50-200 or so.

    Mlife doesn't care about sportsbetting.

    I heard some casinos don't rate unless you play $25 min while others do. Getting a card can't hurt, you mine as well get one. You may receive offers + EC.

    Get a card if you plan on playing for more than a few minutes. You probably will get discount rate. Who knows, you might get lucky, give them some decent action and get a comp offer.

    I always give them my card, even if my plan is to only buy in for $50 and play a couple hands. You never know what will happen, you can get on a lucky streak, up you bet, and next thing you know you've been playing for 2 hours. Might as well have it all count.

    I know a few very small players that always use their card. They do get small offers, or at least a few nights free on occasion depending on the property.
    So I would say use it no matter what, might just get you something.

    Yes - definitely give them your card.

    The only two casinos that still have the dumb "We won't rate you for anything less than $25" rule are Aria & The Mirage.

    I would use it. Even small action can generate discounted rooms at a place like Monte Carlo, New York, etc.... Also make sure the check in clerk associates your card with your room. And remember that almost all spending at MGM will result in tier credits. The color of your card doesn't do a whole lot in the long run but the higher tiers do get small discounts at gift shops and off the rack rate hotel. Points are 25 per $1 spent.
