    Couple questions, probably dumb ones, about an MLife comp offer. Got my first ever comp offer for 2 nights at most of their properties. About to book a stay at Mandalay Bay and in the fine print it includes the following:

    ' Any complimentaries in addition to the listed offer inclusions may be awarded based upon your gaming activity during your stay. '

    If I decide to play more than usual does it have to be at Mandalay Bay in order to considered for more comps or can it be at any MLife property? Also who do I need to approach at the end of my stay to see if there is anything else they will comp? Anyone at the MLife desk or do I need to ask to speak to someone else?

    My offer includes only $100 in freeplay. Yes as you can tell I'm a big bettor. I would like to see if I can get some food/beverage credit. I have no idea how much more I need to bet over my normal amount (about $1000-1500 a day on slots and craps) to be considered and I don't want to look like an idiot for asking.

    Thanks!

    Has to be on property and you talk to a host at the end of your trip to see what they can comp off.

    Just charge everything to your room and when you check out ask the front desk person if they can evaluate your play and potentially comp some of the charges...

    They can also comp stuff at the mlife desk if you visit just before checkout.

    Is $1k-1.5k the amount you're losing or the amount you're betting? The casinos won't care how much you lose, only how much you bet. So if you lose it all quickly, you'll get nothing extra, while if you lose nothing but place lots of bets, then they may comp some extra stuff. But they'll usually make you use up any Express Comps you've earned first.

    You'd probably have to do about $8k+ coin-in per day on slots to start getting extra comps. Mandalay Bay has some absurdly high comp value for their rooms so it takes a while to work it off.

    I always just call VIP Marketing from my room phone before checking out so that they can take off the charges and I can just check-out from my room w/o going to the FD.

    That's going to be on the low side, then. That's a theoretical loss of $150 if you play penny slots, maybe $50 or less at craps. You're looking at maybe 30% of that going to primary comps (non-Express Comps), or $15-$45, vs comp value of around $200/day for the room and $50 for the free play. In other words, you'd have to bet around 5-15x more to start earning comps above the offer's value.

    I don't think your play has to be only at Mandalay bay. I never gamble exclusively at the casino I'm staying at and all my gambling is used to get extra food, show tickets etc comped from my host.
