    Great site, thank you all for allowing me the pleasure.

    My question is this. I'm a Diamond player at CET (have been Diamond for the last 2 years), and I wanted to know how one would "shop around" my play? I'm primary at PH, and love my host, dealers, etc, but was thinking of venturing out maybe to some other properties. Aria, Cosmo, etc. I'm by far not a high end player, but usually game around $4-5K per trip ($25 craps...avg $350-400), and I'm there maybe 9 times a year.


    I think I know the obvious answer, apply for a marker in another casino, or deposit your money at the start of the trip, would probably initiate contact.

    Any information would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Based on many posts here, marker or deposit will not get much attention, unless MAYBE a very large amount. Anybody can deposit money. Play, and play alone gets their attention.

    Not sure how many trips it took you to be Diamond at CET, but you might get some backend help with a strong MGM trip, and future offers.

    $5 k per trip at higher tier casinos (Aria, Wynn, etc.) will not get you any attention unless you get on a burner and start betting a bunch.

    up front money doesnt matter,

    2 suggestion book a trip at cet and give an hour of your play to a mlife property.
    i play bj so im notsure how craps works for comps so ill give u my suggestion with bj.

    go aria give then an hour play of bj at 200$ a hand.

    walk in to host office and intuduce yourself say you like there properties and tell them ur diamind at cet and would to try something differnt.give ur mile card and see what or if he hands your his card and see if you can get a relationship going.if he doesnt offer his card hes probaly not interested in you, wait till shift changes and try again with a new host.

    or cold call the property you want and see if the offer you anything ,sometimes they will know who ur cet host is so that might hdelp.its a small world as host change properties alot.

    im being wooooed by a few properties and in not a high roller,a good black chip or more player but still theres a lot of competion out there for steady players

    thats not true at aria.i dont do craps but 200$ a hand bj will get you noticed,if you make it last that will work or if u loose it in10 minutes you will get descretionary comps.

    they wont roll out a lear jet for you but food and room yes,

    in fact ive been offerd 3 free nites limo and 300$ resort credits at 200$ and up a hand.

    aria has been real good to me and bellagia hasnt and i know others have it the other way.
