    What level of money/gaming do you have to do to get comps. We have Mlife (only got one on 3rd trip last yr) and this is 4th trips to Vegas from UK. Stayed in M hotels each time and also booked for trips this yr.

    We have never been offered a comp but I'm guessing it cause all I ever heard was its not worth getting a card (only got one on 3rd trip last yr)? We stay 13/14 nights booked through UK sites (due to dollar exchange if we book direct) so we can't get point for stay (would be good level if we did).

    We love Vegas and will probably be back every yr or 2 but annoyed we hear of so many comps. On average we spend bout £3000 ($4500) on food/shows/gambling. That's not counting the £2-3000 to get there for 13/14 nights.

    I also have also been playing My Vegas on Facebook and Mobile.

    Any advice on comps would be great.

    Get a Mlife card. Use it for everything. Talk to a host before checking out to see what they can do.

    Also, book through the hotel you're staying at or Mlife. And charge your food to your room no matter which MGM property you stay at.

    If you leave very few footprints they won't really notice you've been there and they're not gonna hunt you down. Bean counters make poor detectives.

    The primary reason you're probably not seeing anything is $4500 isn't all that much for a 2 week trip if you have that for food and other entertainment as well (depending on your dining options and show frequency, of course). $300-$350/day for 2 people, if you choose even moderate dining options, you have a pretty small gambling budget. If you stay at the higher end hotels, you'll definitely see nothing. To give you a point of reference I get offered modest comps (2-3 nights in rooms in the mid & lower properties with a bit of RC or FP) and I budget approximately $500/day purely for gambling.

    Another important thing to note is the next time you are in Vegas, go to an MLife Players Club desk and ask them to link your accounts.

    Couples sharing the same address can have their accounts linked (you each have your own individual account numbers but when you play slots etc you can reach card levels faster because the tier credits as well as the Express Comp dollars earned are combined).

    It would be better for your level if you could book directly with MLife for the hotel stay because you get 25 tier credits for every dollar spent at the MLife properties including hotel stay, food etc. For example. if you paid 3,000 pounds for your hotel stay you would probably be Gold without any gaming - however, tier level alone will not suddenly get you fantastic comps and offers. The casinos do look at your actual play and that is why using the Player's Card is so important. You could be a lower level, play more and get better offers than someone who is Gold only by spending money on food and hotel stays.

    Clara, I think you're much better off asking these questions on the trip advisor forum for Vegas. Tons of people from the UK over there who are Vegas experts and could probably help you much better than people on this board. Just not as many experts from the UK here as there are on TA.

    This is great board for almost everything except for questions like these as there are differences between comps for US citizens and citizens that come from other countries.

    Getting comped from the UK is infinitely harder than being comped from the US!

    It's always worth getting a card. At MGM resorts you get points for resort spend and at $4500 you'd hit Gold easily which honestly isn't good for a lot but it does do nice things like allow you to skip buffet lines, skip cafe line and VIP check in. And even if you are a small gambler you still might can get something comped at the end of your trip. Before you check out go to the MLIFE desk and ask them if there is anything they can take off of your bill based on your play. It might be something as small as a coffee shop visit or a resort fee. But at least it's something. Every little bit helps and everyone should get what's coming to them I say. A penny saved is a penny earned.
