    Just got back from Vegas! Stopped by a casino host to see what my rating was. BJ only, she said I was rated at 17 hours at $45 a hand. Made the mistake of playing a few hours with my wife at $10-$20 a hand to just have some "together time". My last night u asked a pit boss after I was done playing and he said he was rating me at 3 hours 5 mins at $75/hand.

    I flew in Tuesday night and flew out Friday night.
    3 total nights.

    Question is, what should I have been comp'd in terms of dollars for the trip. If I had not played with my wife and say had a $50 or $75 ADT what should I have expected?

    I was on a 2 night comp with 2-1 show tix and $75 resort credit. Should I have been comp'd anything else?

    TIA

    The 3 hours at 75 really doesn't mean anything. The 17 hrs at 45 is what they will comp you at. Did you win or lose? You came out ahead as far as the 17hrs-45! Good job..

    I figured I came out ahead as that seems low to me. I understand the 3 hours at $75 doesn't mean anything to them. I was just throwing it out there for the reason why my per hand was so low because of 3-4 hours of "bs" play with my wife. I guess I didn't realize that it would hurt me. When she wasn't around 13+ hours of play I probably played at least 6-8 hours at a $50/hand minimum table (which for me is usually $50-$125).

    My tax info on mlife shows a $1500 win but I know I brought $1500 and my bank account shows I took out $2300. I came home with $2900. Paid for everything with my CC. So to me I lost $900.

    Was just curious what my daily comp amount should be. I don't gamble for the comps but as my income keeps going up I would like to get into the $100/hand range and would like to understand what I should expect in terms of comp value.

    If I was rated at $75/hand at BJ, how many hours would I need to play on a 3 day trip to get room comps at MGM and say $50 a day in FB?

    Thanks for your reply!

    Hard to say without knowing where you were staying. But overall, you generated less than $200 in comps. If they gave you two nights upfront, discounted show ticket, and a $75 resort credit, that probably ate up all your comps.

    Thanks for the replies everyone!

    I was staying at the Bellagio on a corporate offer. Was my 3rd time at MLife properties, the first two were at MGM on 3 night comps during the week. Those trips were without the wife and strictly gambling (didn't even go outside one trip). As I said I am typically $50-125/hand during those trips. I usually get corporate offers and then one direct from MGM for 2 or 3 nights during the week.

    Thanks for helping me understand.

    I don't believe the low play cost you anything because you weren't likely to get anything extra even without it. If you're that worried about your average wager, don't give them your card when you're planning to play low.

    I have asked several hosts and PBs about giving my card when playing carnival games with my wife.

    The consensus is it will never hurt you to give your card as it always contributes to the trip theo.
    I was always hesitant to get rated at 3 card poker playing green chips when my overall table game average would be $550-600.
    Not sure if it is accurate but they say it may drag your average down but push your trip theo up.

    3CP will definitely help with your theo as the HA on that game is so much higher than BJ. ....more than 10X
