    Why don't the Sportsbooks at MLife casinos, track your bets for Tier Credits and Express Comps. That is, why don't they ask for your Players Card when you place a bet?

    Am I missing something?:licklips:

    I've asked the same question before. From what I understand, the sports books are not a huge money maker for the casinos, so they don't offer many perks for the sports bettors. They largely just consider the sports books to be a convenience (read: favor) for the player, so they have no interest in tracking your play for points and comps.

    I would have thought that the volume would make it worthwhile for the casinos to encourage more betting at the sportsbooks.

    I always throught that if they brought the table games closer to the sportsbook then it would encourage more sports betting.

    I personally love the Mandalay Bay layout - even though the craps pit is a little bit away from the book they have TV's on the columns around the tables.

    I wonderedwhy Aria (where Im going Friday) doesnt put TV's in the walls around the craps tables. I'd for sure stay at the tables longer if I knew I could lay a bet the book and then walk back to the tables and watch the game and play craps and then walk back and lay some more bets, etc.
