Last trip I went to see my host on the morning before my flight home and she comped off more food, beverage, and pool expense than I expected she would. No big deal, just a good result. On the way home, though, I realized that at the time I went to see her I had much more in outstanding markers from the trip that I usually do, and I hadn't yet gone by the cage to settle up. Think there's some relation there? I've never given the impression that I'd late pay or default on a marker. In fact, I always pay at the end of the trip instead of taking advantage of the 30 days that I have to pay at my casino. But I'm not sure I'd ever done the last-day host visit before I paid my markers off. She can certainly see those outstanding markers when she looks up my play, and aren't hosts sort of indirectly on the hook for outstanding debt, in the sense that they don't want to be giving free stuff to someone who doesn't pay up? All in all, it wouldn't surprise me if hosts were a bit nicer to people who still owed money. I think I'll make a habit in the future of seeing my host before I pay the bills.
