    So during college football season I can't do weekends, and I'm pretty much stuck with Sun - Thurs.

    What's everyone's experience been if you get comped four nights, and only play two days, four hours each day at an acceptable level?

    Do the two days you don't play impact you negatively so long as you play your normal bet and number of hours the other two days?

    Thanks, that's what I thought. I don't want to mess up my weekends, specifically Super Bowl weekend, and some other big events I go for.

    Depending on the casino,those two days might matter greatly. At CET, each day you are "on site" in their system, it gets averaged into your theo/adt. The earlier comment about cheap nights has nothing to do with it.

    Any hotel/casino is going to count all nights you stay there in the calculation of your ADT. If you play enough on the two nights, that could be enough to maintain the ADT that got you the offer. Depends on what your current ADT is.

    If you're talking about basically going there and staying 4 nights with a normal 2 night bankroll, then you'll probably hurt your ADT. Doesn't matter if you concentrate it into 2 nights or spread it over 4, it works out short.

    Having one or more no-play nights over the course of a stay doesn't hurt you as long as the average per night ends up the same as what you've done in the past.

    Last week I only played 8 hours over 4 nights. I did add in quite a bit of slot play, which is unusual for me. When I went to the host office, she said that they were looking for an average of 4 hours play at $150/hand per night I stay (Caesars). However, I bet a little higher than that on craps, and had the slot play, so they still gave me the $150 or so I charged to the room. The room itself was comped, and I have diamond (through founders card) so no resort fees. Who knows if it will affect my offers, it hasn't yet.

    Be aware that they have increased the comp rates on the rooms at Caesars. The Augustus Tower with a fountain view is now almost $200 per night. It was previously $120/night. Without a view it is $145 a night. It is also my observation that they are tracking Theo differently. This affected backend comps on my last trip.

    Thanks for heads up. I figured I wouldn't get anything, I was pleasantly surprised. I was in Augustus and had a fountain view, although it was through the window with the extra supports going through it, so I don't think they called it a fountain view. I usually stay at PH. However, I will say the room and pool are a massive step up at Caesars.

    are the comp rates published somewhere? or do you get the info from your host?

    I got them from my host. I don't believe that they are published anywhere.

    If you had read my last trip report. This is how I was rated as "overcomped". They raised the room rates and also changed the way they calculated my Theo.
