    I've been staying and playing at the Orleans and Gold Coast for many years. Have never gotten a comped room other than the discount for being Ruby. What kind of play does it take to get a comp? I mostly play poker and video poker. I know poker won't generate comps beyond their standard hourly, but when I play VP I do between 1000 and 3000 points a day. Too weak? What do I need?

    I went to the Orleans in March and probably only earned 200-300 points (slots) and I got an offer for 35 buck rooms Sun-Thur for the rest of the year lol I plan on playing more there in the future, I really enjoyed the atmosphere and cheap drinks.

    Hopefully you already have BConnected online setup already. You need to use the drop down box and choose a "home" casino. Mine is Orleans for I do most, if not ALL of my play there.
    Choose which ever casino you gamble the most VP at. From what I've heard, Boyd uses your last 3 available trips for figuring out what offers you get. IMO - VP @ 1000-3000 points per day should net you some free rooms.

    Two free night offers are pretty easy to earn there. My play at other BConnected properties is solid (5k+ coin in a day), but I give Orleans and Gold Coast less than half of that and I keep generating 2 night free offers. I'm surprised you're not getting anything.

    What Aaisack said exactly. But definitely open (by registering) a bconnected account to check offers.

    Yes, surprising with that play you don't get something. I talked to the Head Casino Host recently .... he intimated that 4 hours of play per day is what they look for. However, the computer generates the offers based on averages. Next time you're there, go into the Emerald room (near Front Desk) and talk to them.

    If you log onto BConnected Online, you should be able to see your point totals and a graph of the last year.

    I've been on BConnected for at least a couple years. I hadn't put in earnest time until this year's WSOP. I don't put a stopwatch on it, but as I said I generally earn 1000 to 1500 slot points per day when I visit. I don't know how much coin-in equals a slot point.

    Yes I was there for WSOP to,, surprised you haven't received offers as The Orleans is glad to see you and wants you to stay with them... these offers can be quirky at times as I don't have near the play you do,,, would stay there even without a offer just a great casino

    $1 coin through =1 slot point. 1000= $1 - for food 600 = $1 have 180,000 which = $180 cash or $300 in food

    Not sure that will change home casino. Drop down only says to put in casino you want opening page to go to. Been mentioned by others, you should change home base at BConnected desk.
