    I'd say MLife for sure. I think its easier to get comps with them more so than CET. I've stayed at several MLife properties like MGM, Mirage, NYNY, Mandalay Bay and they've all been great. Which hotels are you considering?

    In my opinion...

    MLife resorts are superior to Total Rewards resorts.

    Mlife casinos gambling is superior to Total Rewards casinos gambling.

    But Total Rewards is far superior to MLife as a tier/comp program.

    So it depends on what you're looking for and your type of play.

    Fiance and I are not big high rollers or gamblers. She does nickel/penny slots. I do primarily poker and some card tables. We're more clubs, pools and show people.

    Love the MLife Hotels. Stayed at Aria MDW 2011 and Monte Carlo October 2011. With MLife never lost Express comps or PointPlay. No real comps from them.

    Love CET/Total Rewards due to the never ending amount of comps offered for Las Vegas. Harrahs next week (room comped 4 of he 6 nights), Harrahs Oct. 2012 (Comped 3 of the 5 nights there), Paris(1/2 price room deal for 4 nights), Planet Hollywood (reduced room plus buffet passes and drink deals), Ballys (Fully comped rooms for 3 nights).

    Down side with TR. If you don't play within 6 months of your last visit either the RC balance or tier score gets reset. When I went to Atlantic City in May and stayed at Showboat for 1 night on a deal they sent me, now all of the offers are flowing again.

    Maybe stay at MLife and gamble at CET?

    the general consensus is lower level slot players do better at CET because they can get free rooms and some FP with very little play. table games players and higher level slot players that are looking for nicer accommodations, suites, RFB, etc do much better with Mlife.

    This is the key. It depends upon which type of gambling you are doing.

    More than half our trip were on through MLife and the comps were getting less and less each year.
    As a result, we tried the CET properties. They have been very generous and we not gone back to MLife.

    MLife - 1 -2 offers a month giving 2-3 free nights in their base room and $50 free play
    CET - probably 10 offers a month in the mail giving 3-5 free nights in much better rooms and $300 free play.

    I do $5 Craps and lots of slots.

    They both half a gazillion hotel rooms and restaurants. And they are both very busy.

    Which is better? Based on where people go, it could be either.

    Exact same with me. My best mlife offer was 2 free night at the Excal and $25FP.

    After switching over to CET I can pretty much get 5 free nights during any weekday, sometimes including Caesars. I have offers all the time for FP around $100 and get lots of invites to solt tournaments. I play $10-20 a hand BJ and a little bit of slots.

    I have always tended towards MGM properties, just gut feeling I guess, but I stayed and gambled at CET also.

    Since MyVegas started, it tipped the scales to MGM for me. 3 days and $300 plus a show, from MGM PLUS $400-800 in My Vegas comps, does it for me


    And with them giving free cruises to Platinum - if I don't split my gambling up, platinum is very obtainable.

    Both.

    Without more information about your situation, either one is better.
