Hello, Long time lurker and first post. Was wondering how people would rate my play and host in Vegas. Would like to know shifter's opinion as you are very informative in everything you write. I am a small fish in the big sea they call mgm/Bellagio. I have gone to Vegas 13 times In 4 years. 4 times last year and already 4 times this year and one more trip in 9 days for Halloween this year. I don't bet very high to others standards. I usually play paigow and average about $70 a hand per trip. Average about 8 hours a day. On an average stay of 3 or 4 days. Will throw in some slot play. Probably put a coin in from 3k-5k. Give or take a thousand or 2 depending on how I am doing. Been recently getting around 50k tier points on the last 3 trips. I am of platinum status. My corporate offers are not very impressive. Fall/winter offer is 1 night free with 2 night Stay at the Bellagio with a $25 resort credit. I have a host there thanks to a friend who introduced me last year. Some history with my interactions with my host. Last 2 trips. All my corporate offers during spring. 2 nights mid week and 100 weekend. With 50 resort credit. August. 48 hour trip to gamble. Asked host if possible suite room at the Bellagio mid week. Monday and Tuesday night. Host gave me a Salone suite for 2 nights and took care of my food charge to room for about $130. I gambled an average verified by my host at $101 playing paigow for 18 hours in my 48 hour stay. Upon checking out went to thank host and give a thank you letter for helping me with the suite. He gave me late check out til 6pm since I had a red eye out later that night. Gave a thank you letter with a $100 bill for his help. Labour day weekend. Host comped me 4 nights upfront with $100 food credit. Sent him an email as I was flying early with a couple of Friends and wanted to go clubbing so asked him about LAX at luxor. He emailed back saying charge it to the room and he''ll comp it for me. We didn't take him up on the offer as we just gambled when we landed. Morning after landing met with my host and he welcomed me by first name and asked me how late my flight landed last night and if I went clubbing from his offer. Told him we just gambled and then he asked if we spoke about late checkout as he knows I take the red eye out. Told him no and he made a call and comped me an extra night (labour day Monday) when I flew out late Sunday night so I wouldn't have to rush out. Very nice of him. Host Took care about $90 and my last charge to the room was on the day he was off and I just used my express comps to take care of the rest. Averaged $69 a hand in paigow and a couple hours of ultimate Texas holdem for an average of $70 for a feel hours, total for about 26 hours in a 4 day stay. Trip in a week. 4 nights comped with $150 food upfront. I believe my host is very good to me and I'm being over comped from my gambling standards. I am not complaining as I do like my host. Was just wondering what others thought about my host and if my comps warrants my play and if I were to call a host from Monte Carlo for example would I be able to a few nights comped in a suite there? Or am I just lucky and have a host? Sorry for the long story. Wanted to share my experience and get some feedback on my situation. Thanks!
