    hey guys,
    Does anybody know if any of MGM owned properties offering comp cigarette or cigars anymore? In Vegas?
    If not does any hotel offers it? I remember buying them at MGM Grand Vegas using express comps

    I've gotten a pack of cigs comped at Mandalay Bay in the HL room but that was a few years ago. But I would think they'd still do it in the HL rooms, a pack of cigs is only around $10.

    Most casinos can do it. Some just use your Express Comps, some will comp you on the spot
    and some will do a combination (that is, partly use your Express Comps).
    I don't smoke , but I saw other players do it by talking to the pit boss.

    Wow, I didn't even know you could use your EC's. So you can go into the Sundries shop and pay for them with EC's? I know you can get a discount using your M Life tier discount, but didn't know you could pay for them with EC's.

    I am not sure about other items from Sundries, but cigarettes you can definitely pay with your EC's (or get free).
    In my opinion, alcohol and tobacco are two things which gamblers don't need to pay with cash in Vegas.

    Wow - then all of the M life properties owe me some big bucks back :). I can't believe that not once when I was buying cigs and handed them my M Life card, that not one person ever told me I could pay for them with EC's. I never make the trip to Walgreens and always just buy them at the property shops.

    Thanks for the very good tip!

    MGM properties will not let you use your EC's to purchase cigs or cigars in their sundry/gift shop. I have used my EC's many many times to buy cigs at MB though. Here's how the process has gone for me there, I call the cigarette girl over, she takes my MLife card, goes to the HL room and they check my EC balance and the points come off that way. You can also go to the cigar store between the poker room and cashier, have them call over the cigarette girl, she will take your card, go to HL, check the balance and give you the cigarettes.

    Yes..I called Aria VIP service they informed me in HL room I will get a comp based on my play .. Now I never bought cigs anywhere else besides the MGM grand as KingBB described above... I'm assuming you can buy them other properties maybe not at sundry shop but other cigarttee store like one inside MGM?

    I got a pack of cigs comped at Red Rock Resort. I was playing craps and ran out. Told my buddy to find the cig girl. Dealer overheard the conversation and whispered something to a pit critter wearing a suit. I didn't think anything about it, I was concentrating on my bets. After a few minutes later, the suit handed me a gold coin and cig girl appeared. I gave the gold coin to the girl and got my smokes.

    At CET properties, we've just gone to the gift shop, charged them to the room, then had everything comped on the back end. Last time I was at an Mlife property, I tried to pay with EC but was denied.

    I was playing VP at the sports bar in the Bellagio - .25 max credit for a couple of hours and was putting tips in jar for bartender for each round and I asked him if they sold cigs behind the bar - they don't so I asked him if he would watch my machine if i ran over to the shop. He said he would organise a comp and have them dent over to me. Great service - did the dame the next day too. I had been at the machine for over an hour at this stage

    I got comped cigs from the carnival game pit this last weekend at Mandalay. They used my express comps.

    i can usually get a "free" pack at the Orleans or Gold Coast. playing pai-gow poker, I just ask the floorperson, and most of the time they approve it. however, I am not killing them on "free" drinks. most of the time I have a bottle of water of black coffee.
