    I am looking to pick a home casino, where should I take my play?

    I will start out next week playing $15 a hand for 1 hour a day for two days.

    That's all I'm going to work with for now.

    Where is the best place to take my play for comps at that level?

    I'm mostly interested in free nights, although promo chips are cool, too.

    I thought I should just take this play Downtown but heard this might produce something at Luxor or Harrah's/Bally's.

    An hour a day? I don't believe you will get anything comped. Also I'm pretty sure you can't even play $15 a hand anywhere on the strip... maybe at Excalibur or the Quad.

    You'll be able to find $15 blackjack on the strip, but it will likely be 6/5 and hit soft 17 and maybe auto shuffled not shoes. But if you're okay with that you'll find some tables. If you step up to the $25 level you will find more 3/2 and stand 17 and 6 deck shoes.

    As for players clubs, if you have not current affiliation and set on $15 level, I say CET for your first time and you will possibly get some teaser offers to come back for a night or two. I would say 2 hours at $15 at mLife won't get you more than a discount rate and not a big one at that. CET might at least give you a teaser to get you to come back then pull offers if the play is similar after that trip.

    Don't expect to get free nights or anything for that level of play.

    Besides downtown, Orleans looks like a good place. On our first visit in 2012, we only stayed one night and played about 4 hours of video poker. We have had offers every month since that day. We visited one more time for three nights in 2013.

    Downtown will be your best bet then Harrah's. You have to remember you must play at a CET location within 6 months or lose all the points you piled up on the 1 trip if you stay at Harrah's.

    Yes you would loose your Total Rewards Credits - but that would have no bearing on whether or not you received future offer.

    The Total Rewards Credits are points that you can spend - much like any points card.

    Orleans or downtown

    Using the general rule of thumb that blackjack comps generate your average bet based on 4 hours of play per day (ie. if you have a $50 ave bet for 4 hours, you can expect to generate around $50 per day in comps), you can expect to generate less than $4 per day based on $15 ave bet for 1 hour.

    So yeah, I would not expect anything in comps with that level of play. MAYBE you get a front-loaded offer from a downtown hotel...maybe.

    I wouldnt expect much if anything for 1 hour of play...my friend that use to work the floor did tell me though that the casino will take care of the table player better than the slot player...for what that is worth. Personally, I haven't played the tables at a harrahs property in a couple of years but I still get way better offers than my sister and she plays more than I do.

    I found this weird as well. My wife and I went in February, I played much more than she did and generated twice as many tier credits yet she is the only one who has received offers thus far.

    BTW, we stayed at Harrah's and for dollar value she was playing what the OP is staking but did play more than 1 hour per day....ymmv.
