I'm headed to Vegas in a few months, and could really use some advice on maximizing comps. I'm not a person that plays for comps, but at the same token I've been to Vegas five times and feel like I haven't gotten a decent comp package. To provide some more detail, I am a 33 year old male going to Vegas in April and plan on bringing around $6-8K. I'm mostly a slots player (yea, I know ) at the $5/spin range, but also play occasional craps and roulette as well as HL slots in the $20/spin range. I'm going with a group of 4, and received an offer for two free days in a standard room at Mirage, with $100 FP and $100 resort credit. I'm sure they want me to come back and try to take back some of a $5K jackpot I hit the last time I was there in May 2015. I'm not into super fine dining, but would like to take the group out once or twice for a nice dinner, and get a limo to and from the airport. Some questions I have: 1.) Does this level of play warrant a host? If so, how do I actually start the process of getting a host? I've never been contacted by a host, and do not know if I can ask for one. I should also mention that when I was there May last year, I was terrible at using my Mlife card. Must've lost about 10 cards before I got sick of asking for new ones and said F*&* it. 2.) At this level of play would you recommend that I charge dinners at Mirage to my room, in hopes I can get them comped at the back end? 3.) Would this level of play warrant a limo ride there and back? If not, I've gone through Presidential limo in the past and am fine with paying $150 round trip. 4.) What's the best way/place to get reduced/free show tickets? I've paid full price for tickets every time and I'm about fed up with it. 5.) I am staying downtown the first night, and have never stayed downtown. Any thoughts on the best places for a 33 year old to stay? There will be four of us (two couples), so need a double bed room. What I'm looking for is a busy casino (but not noisy or party-like casino), modern room, good drink service. I don't care about clubs, pools, or fancy restaurants, but having two separate "rooms" in a suite would be nice. Thanks in advance VMB. Been a follower now for quite some time but don't do a lot of posts. I am going to do a live trip report in April, with lots of drunken debauchery, huge slot wins (hopefully), and anything that's not the norm. You will NOT see any pictures of steaks, hotel rooms, or the fountains.
