    Hi, I'm a Cet/total rewards regular who plays anywhere from $1000-$1500 a day At the sports book during a 4-5 day trip. Question is, do I even bother still giving my card to be swiped at the book? Does it effect my play rating at all? Does anybody just not even bother w a players card at a sports book? Thanks

    Not sure about CET but I have inquired about MLife ............. MLife rates on the horses.

    I've been told that they will rate you on large single bets but like you a grand or 2 is my daily limit. I have done a few grand up to 1500 bets and no one asked for a card.

    Most MLife sportsbooks will be generous with the drink tickets - if you ask.

    As someone who only frequents Mile may I ask you which CET property book do you favor or is your favorite ? (Just curious - I have not intention of taking my business elsewhere)

    CET will rate you for sports bets. You earn very little, but it never hurts. I always give them my card

    Yep. Each sports bet is pretty much equivalent to the same amount you would place on a single spin of the roulette wheel (double zero).

    Now imagine what a drink costs and imagine the sports book comping you 40% of the 5% they'll make on each sports bet and you'll understand why they require between $100-150 bet per drink ticket (depending on the book).

    The books treat horse players better since the vig is in the 18% range.

    I don't really think of horse racing and sports betting as being synonymous. You go to Atlantic City and they have Race Books but no sports betting. They even separate the two at the online books that do both.

    But, yes... they do treat the horse bettors better.

    Do any books still give out drink tickets for small horse betters? A few years ago, friends and I set up shop at the Mirage sports book prior to the Derby and bet random horse races for a few hours mainly to get the drink tickets. We were betting maybe $2 to $5 and screwing around with Exactas, Trifectas, etc...

    Yep. Some require a $2 bet. Some require a $5 bet. You just have to ask what the minimum is for horse betting.

    It's the best way to get free drinks at the sports book, IMO.

    It's one of my favorite Vegas memories getting tanked before the Derby and we were winning just enough to tip the waitress. Bet almost purely on the horses name and if he wasn't the worst longshot.
