    13 hrs @ $107 for a 3 day stay. That's what my host rated me at...is this a micro/low/med/high roller for vegas standards? I was at cosmo. Thanks!!!

    Theo gives you a clearer picture. Comps are based on the theo you generate. Your theo will vary depending on the type of game you play.

    What game were you playing?
    $3500 theo should get you about $1100 to $1400 back in comps, which is about $350-500 per day, I would say that is decent.

    What are you playing? I play primarily at CET. My ADT is similar, but I put in almost double the hours and my avg bet is 3x larger.
    So if you are being told that your theo is $3500, I think it's a generous number.
    I am fully comped, so I think you should be too.

    Did you have slot play in addition to your rated table play? I play UTH at 2.5 times your average, but I get 3/4 of your theo.

    $3500 ADT with $107 over 13 hrs could maybe be possible if you were playing a mix of $100 slots and $25 slots. $3500 for any table game would be tough to generate at these numbers. For instance, BJ depending on players at the table and a couple other variables would be much closer to $1400 for 3 days. If so, this is (high)low roller at Cosmo.

    Roulette with 5.7% HA could generate that theo.

    Really? PT, I never played Roulette until 2 weeks ago when I used your strategy. Average bet was $200. The pit boss was looking over my bets wondering what I was doing. 3 hrs later, I had lost 1 unit. I think he rated me at $4 LOL

    I think PT is assuming the OP would be playing inside numbers, if he did in fact play the wheel.

    One day, I will have to see the famous PT strategy, as I need a backup for UTH...not that I want to abandon UTH, just need another game to go to when I am getting a beating.

    Hi Sin, correct. The OP generated a lot of theo for his play, so he must have played a high HA game.
    Let's play roulette sometime!

    I was playing high limit ($5-$100) slots and roulette primarily. Very little craps and BJ.
    Thanks for everyone's replies so far...I'm pretty new to the comp thing so appreciate the insight

    I usually check, but I was out of my element and really just trying out the system while enjoying drinks. This was at a place called French Lick (Larry Bird's hometown) Resort. My 2 day theo was $5800, but because it was a one and done trip even when not playing roulette, I did not do my usually end game time/average question.

    really sorry to threadjack, but when do you ask these questions? when you leave a table? at the end of a day to your host?
    and specifically what do you ask?

    You should ask the pit boss at the end of a session for your avg bet and time.
    Then later you should ask your host, or a host on duty, what was your avg bet and time AND theo, for that same session.
    It is a good idea to get into the habit of doing this, for each session, just to make sure they don't screw up.
    For example, PPHold and others have posted that they have had entire long gambling sessions NOT recorded, and they had to go the eye in the sky recordings to recreate the session avg bet, time and theo.
    So you can't be too careful.

    Thanks PT. I never do this. I will on occasion say "am I still being rated" and they will say yes, but never specifics. might explain some fluctuations on offers.
    So.. assume I ask the PB my avg bet and time, and they say $5 avg for 1 hour, when in reality it was $25 for 4 hours. then what? just as you described for PPhold?

    chat with them about it and ask them to adjust it.

    I do this no matter what they tell me,

    unless they were already extremely generous and I know it.
