Ok I have a question. Hope you guys can help me. Me and a friend of mijn are going to LV in march this year for a 2 week trip. We got a nice hotel booking through Hotels.com were we are staying in THEsuite at THEhotel for about 2000 dollars incl tax and resortfee for the 14 nights. Now we are planning on playing Blackjack and have a gamblingbudget of $6000 combined. We will be playing for an average of $20 a hand per person for an average of 6 hours a day. So combined $40 a hand for 6 hours a day. Now I read in a lot of post and reviews that it's possible to get comps incl free rooms. The site of Mandalay Bay even says that if you bet an average of $25 for 4 hours you get discounts or even free rooms with their VIP experience. Now here is the question. With the betting pattern we are planning to have during the trip should I call some hotels (we are looking for a 4* hotel or up so lets say Monte Carlo and better) to see what they can do for us in discounted or free rooms or should I count my blessings with the booking I have with hotels.com which can not be comped but can be cancelled. Hope you guys can help me out in what to do. Call hotels to see what to do or just be happy with the great deal I got and try to get comps in diners and shows when I'm there and play there and try to get good offers for the next trip. Thanks for the advice.
