    I'm curious what a host can cover on your room charges besides the obvious room, food, and drinks? I would like to know this in case I would like to buy items like clothing, souvenirs, show tickets, casino merchandise, etc. What about third party services like helicopter rides to Hoover dam, strip or is it strictly their casino properties?

    Thanks.

    It depends on how much your average play is. My CET host will go out of his way and get me almost anything (or reimburse for it) depending on my trip theo.

    At Caesars properties you can get purchases from the gift shops they own and Kitson in the Link comped.

    Most trips I will come home with a purse or some Brighton jewelry for my Mother that was comped from a CET gift shop.

    Show tickets at the property or a sister property are easily comped (as always, depending on your level of play). As are spa charges. Retail can be a bit harder, especially at MGM and CET. Getting retail comped at Cosmo or Venetian has always seemed easier, at least for me. Ultimately, it all depends on your level of play. If you gamble enough, they will comp most anything within reason. so if you're trying to get retail comped, plan to bet really big. Good luck

    Hard comps are a whole different ball game.

    Generally takes 1M+ loss before they start comping tips and stuff like helo rides etc.

    Bill backs are easier but still take a high theo and losses.

    If you're not at least at the 100k level it's not going to happen.

    I'm definitely not at that level. I recently came back from a 3 day trip with 12 hrs at $237 average on Bj. Can someone calculate my ADT? This was at Atlantis Bahamas so I'm sure the comps are different then the CET / MGM properties. I'm diamond at CET.

    Thanks.

    Your ADT for that trip was approximately $225. So as to your original question, I would not expect much beyond a free room and some food and drinks comped

    At CET my host will comp the usual food and beverage and show tickets, CET retail store, salon and spa, and limos. I have also had concert tickets at a competing property billed back and comped. I pay for gratuities in cash.

    If you already purchased show tickets, how can they be comped? Or, do you mean he/she will get you tickets for a show?
     
    Will give them a try!

    I ask my host for tickets for a concert at MGM or Venetian. I pick them up at their box office. MGM or Venetian bills back CET for the tickets and my host comps them.

    When I played quite a bit at CET properties, they would take care of anything and everything on property and at any of their other properties. Never once had to pay anything. Its all about playing level. Only table game I played was craps (500 avg)the rest was vp and gf on slots. The slot coin in was 500k+ per trip(3 days.) This was a while back when they first started the 7 star program so things probably have changed.

    At MGM it doesn't cost any comps.

    I haven't asked for much overall above the room comp, free play and occasional resort credit which is all part of the offer. I've had a limo once (which I didn't ask for but loved getting) and I did recently ask for some show tickets which will be comped off of the room as well.

    I've had helicopter rides comped for much much less than 1m.

    I've also had tips in excess of $1500 comped but that was very unusual.

    They can also comp rides in the sport cars at the track.

    The more you gamble the more creative they will be.
