    They really don't offer that too much, although I have seen a couple people mention it - so I assume you must be a pretty high roller to get something like that. Otherwise, CET figures you will pay from your TR credits. I do usually earn anywhere from $50 to $125 in TR credits per trip on my budget, so they can add up on slots fairly easily IF you stick with the machines & don't 'hop'. ($400 day budget but normally don't go thru it).

    I would guess you'd have to be spending a good amount of money. We plan for about $1500/day, may or may not lose it all, of course. We play slots mostly. We get free rooms at any of the CET properties for any days/length, but no "official" RFB. However, we get all room charges (from bars/restaurants) removed at the end of each stay. First the host takes off RCs (which we only have around a couple hundred of) then the rest he takes off from his discretionary comps.

    I have heard this is quite commonplace at least with anyone except probably the high rollers.

    I think I am going to spread my play around a little more going forward. I don't know if it is worth it to play one place/company just to get a little extra in comps. Like waiting for a "free" drink from the cocktail waitress but you actually burn through another $100 waiting for it, making it a $100 drink? I think "what if there is a machine ready for me to win on at a competing property"? I might be missing opportunities by strictly sticking to one place. Maybe I am crazy. LOL

    You can only use a host once you get to a certain level right?

    If and when you qualify for "free stuff" worth talking about a Casino Host will seek you out.

    Casinoman, sometimes hosts are readily available and seek people out, other times not. Depends on the property, time of day, etc. I had a host previously, but he left and I didn't bother to speak to the new one because I get what I want at check-out anyway. If you think you have played a hefty amount on a trip, just ask the front desk to check out with a host. It usually only takes one time to determine if it applies to you or not. :)
