I've noticed a lot of this thread is about upfront and back-end comps, and players club comps (tier perks, points, tier credits, cashback, freeplay, etc). But I was wondering if you can still get the old-school comps from the pit in Vegas, especially at the nicer places on The Strip? You know, playing at the table for a couple hours and asking the pit boss for a buffet/cafe comp, or a really nice dinner with wine if you're playing big enough. I've also heard of asking for fight/show ticket comps, spa passes, club comps, etc, from the pit. But a lot of the references I find to this online and in books are old (10+ years) so not sure if it happens anymore. With the modern players clubs on The Strip do they still give out these kinds of comps? Anybody have recent experience with this on The Strip? Is there an advantage to asking the pit for food comps (or other comps) VS charging to your room and hoping to get it comped off the back-end?
