I started to post this on another thread, but figured it should stand alone. The topic of using ECs for room charges vs having a host comp them off comes up often. I think in the big picture they are trying to get the comps out of the hands of hosts, and into a computer system. In theory, it sort of makes sense, for most players. Old Way: Your play earns $530 in comps. You see the host, and he takes $530 off your bill. Unless of course, your bill was only $340. Then he takes off $340. And you go on your way. New Way: As you play, you earn Express Comps. In theory, if the same person above earns $530 in comps, they just use their EC at checkout to pay for things. In this example, they have some left over for the future. No host involved. Good and bad with both systems of course. And, those HIGH rollers fit into a different situation anyways. But, the more you play, the more ECs you earn. You decide what you want comped vs hoping you find a host in a good mood. Thoughts?
