    So, I went on a 1 nighter to Vegas a few weeks ago and decided to sign up for Grazie, since I was at the Venetian and wanted to gamble. I spent $55 (well I have 277 points...) and they sent me an offer for a slot tournament and 3 free nights. (I know slot tournaments are not that exciting, but it's worth it for the free nights)

    Should I be concerned if I book this? It does say to gamble at my "historical level of play" which is fine... but it's not much. I don't usually spend more than $100 a day.

    I go to Vegas a ton, but I usually don't gamble enough to get any offers. So I'm a little confused about the etiquette. Any insight?

    I booked a free offer at Palazzo this spring for my sis and BIL, while I stayed at Wynn. I might have gambled for an hour at V/P during the three days. There were no issues other than the fact that my offers aren't as good now.

    Plus, they know you haven't gambled much. They're just hoping that if they have you there for three days you'll gamble more than you did last time. They know that there's a chance you won't up your play and they're willing to take that risk.

    I wouldn't worry about it. Enjoy the free room and gamble an amount you're comfortable with. :beer:

    Like carve said, it's a teaser offer to get you back and see if you play more.

    You're not on the hook for anything; in this case, the bit about playing to your historical level actually works in your favor, lol.

    They usually have at least a couple of slot tourneys a month, and I expect you'll get similar offers for several months. So if the current one fits in with your travel plans, fine, but there will probably be more down the road, so I wouldn't necessarily feel the need to jump on the first one.

    Once you take them up on one, and don't boost your play level, you probably won't get many more.

    You are just fine. But, if you play at the same level, do not expect any additional offers.

    Interesting to see they are skimming down low to get people back into their casino.

    I don't think Grazie's doing anything different than they or anybody else has done historically, except for that debacle they had a couple of years ago when they cut everybody off.

    I got comp offers from them after the first time I popped in and ran a hundred through, and that was 5 years ago.

    Thanks guys! Yea I don't plan on getting more high roller offers from the Venetian, but free nights there is worth it. I really like it there and haven't had a chance to stay there in a several years.

    Just have to see if it works in my schedule.
