    I'm usually a poker player, but the last time I was in las Vegas I ended up playing a lot of slots.

    This week I received an email for 3 comped nights and a slot tourney invite to venetian.

    The fine print states that I will be required to maintain a level of play consistent with past visits. How strict will they be about this? If I put a few hours in will that be good? I'm guessing the last time I put about 6 hours split between penny, quarter and dollar machines over 3 days.

    That small print is usually not an issue to get the specified comp/offer.

    If you have any visits between now and that offer and low play, they could back you down.

    And, if you go and low play, future offers will be reduced.

    Otherwise, you will be fine. Your offer if really not for much.

    You'll be fine. I play those tournaments all the time and my play with V/P isn't large by any means.

    Cool, thanks!

    I just didn't want to get there and end up having to pay for my room.

    Thanks again

    I did one last year it was cool!

    I don't see any reason they'd make you pay for your room. But you shouldn't go take a $600 comp, since their rooms are rather expensive, and not spend money there you know?

    Also heads up the tournaments are some what of a ploy you gotta be on property at 10:00 and then 2:00 then 10 the next day.. etc... they kinda wanna keep you around! So you will likely be gambling anyways.

    Thats true heather, but the GOOD part of V/P Slot tourneys?

    IF you WIN any Freeplay from the tourney?
    It stays on your Grazie card for 6 months.
    And you don't have to show up at a certain time, to claim it!

    I've done MANY V/P tourneys, and some people have flights leaving
    right after their last tourney session. lol
    They are Outta there, and you don't have to hang around like most
    other tourneys to see IF you've won. Cuz IF you did? Its automatically
    loaded on your card. End of story.

    Thats one of the best perks of V/P tourneys.

    I would be cautious accepting their "comp" offer.

    One poster recently said the V/P pulled his comp and charged him fully for the room for playing differently on comp stay.

    The Venetian also pulled comps instantly one random weekend a couple of years ago where people in flight / checking in were told they had no comps / switched their comp offer to nothing with no time to make other arrangements. People were forced to pay double/triple a normal room rate because they had to scramble to pay inflated last minute weekend room rates on a busy weekend.

    This is the way the Venetian does business. The fish rots from the head down. I'd be cautious. If you do accept, hopefully you will not receive the same treatment.

    That was some gnarly BAD PR.
    V/P hasn't done that (yanked a comp) in a couple years.........I think they learned their lesson.
