Hello all, I am planning a trip to the MGM in two weeks. I went out there recently with my girlfriend, and as a new transplant to the mLife system, I had basically no history with them. While I was there, I played at around $225-250 average bet for 10-12 hours (over three days). I made it a point to stop by to speak with (and hopefully establish / develop a relationship with) a host on my first full day there, and I met a very friendly, engaging player development executive, who immediately offered to comp my room upfront, and seemed eager to help me out in any way possible. At the end of the trip, I called down to VIP to let them know I was checking out, and to see if they would be able to take care of any room charges. I was told that everything (except tips) was wiped off, and that I was good to go. Long story short, that level of play easily covered a regular room, minimal food, and a few miscellaneous drinks. This is my question: Since I only recently joined the mLife system, and my offers up until now have been miniscule/non-existent, I am trying to figure out the best way to book my next trip. Do I: 1. Call the hotel, ask for VIP, and see what offers they have for me? 2. Call the hotel, ask for my host, and let them book it for me? Considerations I Have: 1. I may or may not play at that level this trip. I don't like feeling obligated to keep a host happy or such - I want to feel free to play at whatever level is appropriate based on my feeling in the moment. On the other hand, I will probably play, if not at that level, at least at a black chip level no matter what. 2. If I have an offer in the system, will it include perks (such as freeplay) that actually exceed what I'd reasonably get from working with a host? 3. Have the summer offers actually come out yet? On the mlife website, it is still showing Spring, which for me, is nothing sexy. 4. Even if the summer offers have come out or do shortly, will my recent play (April) even influence their content? Thanks for reading my awfully long OP.
