Let me make a short story, long . I posted on here several months ago about getting into MLife's graces. I've been living out of the country for a while and had mainly been staying and playing at Wynn/Encore. Their (front end comp) love for me waned while I was living abroad and I was looking at where I wanted to spend my Vegas trips over the next year or so. I had previously been taken care of quite well at the Mirage back when Wynn owned it and since it was the first places I ever had a host, I decided I'd book (a paid rate) and play there (nostalgia got the best of me). I spent 90% of my bankroll at the mirage, mostly on video poker (also played some down at the MGM and MB). I tend to play $1 or $5 denoms, 5 at a time (so $5 or $25 hands, depending on payout tables) for 6-8 hours a day. Over the three-day weekend I earned 127K points on gaming alone. On my way out I stopped by the Mlife desk and asked about comps and was basically told they would be happy to apply my $127 in express comps to my hotel bill. I did not qualify for anything else on the back end. I was a bit surprised as that level of play would have garnered me a decent comp on the back-end at Wynn, but I figured perhaps my theo was low given I do tend to seek out the best paytables. I wasn't too crushed as I play to play, not for comps, and to be honest the Mirage has lost a bit of its luster for me. Roll forward about 2 months and I log-in to MLife to check rates at the Beau Rivage as I had a friend planning a trip to the gulf that I was thinking of tagging along to. Low and behold I have an offer from the Mirage for 3 nights in a suite, limo, $500 resort credit and $475 in FP. I decided to book for the weekend after NYE (I like the slow times and this falls nicely between NYA and CES starting). Two weeks later I get an email from a host at NYNY, inviting me to their NYE party, including accommodations, $450 in FP and $75 resort credit. I politely decline (mentioning I am staying at the Mirage the following weekend) and receive a reply to let her know should I ever want to stay at NYNY. SO, now to the part that might be relevant to others (in the grand scheme of comps). How do the Mlife resorts "rank" in the level of play required for comps (or, in the generosity of comps)? I know Aria and Bellagio are at the top of the pecking order, Excalibur and Luxor are at the bottom. But it's not clear to me from all the posts here, how the middle shakes out. I ask because I'm wondering what sort of luck I'd have calling up a host at the MGM and asking if they can match the comp I have booked at the Mirage. I think I'd prefer to get "in" there over the Mirage. I'd consider staying at NYNY as I used to like it there, but I don't really know how it shapes up these days (and I don't really want to deal with construction noise). What I don't want to do is try to get in somewhere my play isn't going to garner any attention on the front end. Thoughts?
