Should I expect any back end comps?

    Okay definitely a small player here- 2nd time in Vegas, joined mlife 2 years ago on my first trip- played some then but not a lot, had stayed at luxor, I get corporate offers for a comp weeknight w/ purchase of another night from luxor and Excalibur, and sometimes some emails for mgm or bellagio discounts.

    On this trip I got two nights at mandalay comped through myvegas. At check-in I was able to get the guy to give a $75 food/bev credit and comp a fridge in the room. Only real charge for the room should be resort fees.

    Over two days I earned a bit over 350pts on slots, so about $1000 coin-in. This was split fairly evenly over each day, with probably 60-70% at MB, a real little at mirage, and the rest at mgm.

    Is it worthwhile for me to see if they'll take the resort fees off based on that or just skip the mlife desk at checkout and forget about it?

    Not sure if it makes a difference but I'm moving over to mgm for tomorrow night- only there one night and booked that with a corporate offer. Am I better off waiting until check out at mgm to see if they will do anything on the back end?

    Thanks in advance for any opinions!

    asking is free so always ask but with mlife u should have just played at the one property u were staying at u would have had a better chance of comps,thats how mlife works

    You can always ask but I think the chances are slim to none. You should have earned $3.50 in Express comps so they may apply that to your final bill but I wouldn't expect anything more.

    I calculated a bit more in EC, but this is correct. At this level, it doesn't matter which mlife casino you play at because anything they take off the back end is coming out of your express comps (and you earn those at the same rate at every mlife property)

    That may be true but it also leads to bigger losses. Not always fun.

    Does it matter for back end comps with CET which casino you play at? I like to hop around?

    No, it doesn't matter Donny. CET casinos are in one big giant pot, where your play is looked at, at all CET properties. Unlike MLIFE, where play is assessed at each individual casino where you play at.
