    I read a post the other day and it made me wonder about my play, and if I am hurting myself in the long run. Hopefully PHVHost can help on this. I strictly stay and play at CET properties. I may drop $20 here and there at other casinos on the strip, but no large play. I do however spread out my play over almost all CET props on a trip. (excluding Rio as it is just a pia to get there) Does that hurt my ADT or comp level, or because CET is linked it doesn't matter. I like certain machines at different properties and just like the change of scenery after a while. I always assumed that it is under one umbrella, but now not sure. I spent one trip at Caesars with a much bigger bankroll than usual, and centered my play there as I was on an invite from a host. My Caesars comp nights actually went down post trip??? Sigh, I don't get it. HELP!

    CET properties are linked. Your offers should be bases on your Vegas ADT(all Vegas properties combined). A larger bankroll may not necessarily mean a higher ADT. For example, if you have a $10,000 bankroll and use it to play 4 hands of blackjack at $2500/hand, but lose all 4 hands in 10 minutes............your ADT will not even be close to $10,000. Your ADT will most likely be less than $500. Assuming the casino comps at 30%, you earned about $150 in comps. The $150 in comps for a 3 or 4 night stay a Caesars, does not even cover the cost of the room. You may be given consideration for the size of the loss, but offers are based on ADT.

    I don't think your play would hurt unless it went down. Like Sydney said, CET combines all your play at the hotels they own (it's a bit of a hassle to track if yourself but if you go to the TR counter, they can go through an add up your tier credits to see what your standing is). I've often wondered if taking CET's up on a comp at the higher end hotels like Caesars/Nobu impacts your future comps or not. Would be interested to hear what PHHost has to say if he sees this...or if it's something he can comment on.

    My personal experience which is a little different. Years ago I had some discounts on hotel rooms and I'd booked a family trip for 3 rooms at a discount. Unfortunately, 2 of the rooms weren't filled with gamblers and it took me years to recover from that.

    Nope. Penny and quarter slot player 6-8 hours a day. I recirculate wins so depending on luck my coin in varies. I would have a heart attack playing 10k in 10 minutes! :faint:

    And to add a sub-topic...if play is spread out, does it count toward the daily tier credit bonus? (Do all properties in one day add to a total for bonus?)

    Yes, it counts. That's why I mentioned the part about going up to the TR's desk unless you're great at tracking it yourself at each casino. The day is about 6am to 6am though I hear, so keep that in mind.

    I don't think using a comp at a higher end property impacts your future comps. What may hurt you is not covering the cost of the comp. Even though you have a corporate offer (eg. 5 nights hotel and a slot tournament) , when your host is calculating back end comps, they will factor in a dollar amount for hotel. A room at Caesars in the Agustus tower may have a value of $150/night vs a room at Bally's with a value of $60/night. When I mention covering the cost of the comp, I meant generating theo.

    For me personally, my entire bankroll goes to CET. I am only Gold but stay 5 nights at a time. I get comps (for 5 nights), primarily from 4 hotels (Rio, Harrah's, Bally's, and Quad). But once in a while i'll get comped at Caesars and Planet Hollywood (5 nights).
    But i never gamble at Harrah's or the Quad, usually Paris and PHO mainly.

    My bankroll stays the same. It will be interesting to see if my ADT after 2014 alters towards PHO as far as getting 5 nights comped (5 x 2).
    I average about 3500 tier credits per year, and will probably be at the same level after my two trips remaining this year.

    I would love to know from Hunter (granted, i'm a lowly Gold player), if staying 15 nights per year is hurting me in the long run as far as getting comped 5 nights at Caesars, PHO, and Paris (i never get 5 nights comped at Paris even though a lot of my bankroll is used there) on a regular basis compared to Harrah's, Rio, the Quad, or Bally's.

    I have looked at the TR rate calender for 2015 (up to August), and i only see Rio as the only hotel that shows me 5 nights comped.
    I realize that it might change (i still have 2 trips left in 2014), but this has never happened to me before.

    If i stay only 3 nights but 5 times a year as opposed to 5 nights 3 times a year, does that make a difference using the same bankroll but in a shorter period of time?
