    I totally understand that this question is asked a million times on here but I will ask it again.
    I leave tomorrow for 3 nights at Caesars palace.
    I was in Vegas in may and had some short impromptu gambling! Wasn't planning on gambling at Caesars so Played blackjack for about 3-4 hrs and cashed in $5000 that I had on me. I was gambling $300-$1500 hands.( the later I stayed and the more I drank the more I bet! Lol) I ended up walking with $10,000 after my buy in! It was a great night.
    I ended up planning a girls trip to Vegas that we leave for tomorrow morning! When we decided on a girls trip I looked on my card the calander rates all said zero so we decided to plan our trip at Caesars. My question is what is considered high rollers at Caesars and what kind of comps can I expect besides the free room I already have. Since I've planned this trip I've planned it better and wired my gambling budget of $50,000. I plan on playing 6-8hrs a day at blackjack, bets between $500-$2500. Maybe more if I'm winning.( I know it's a huge difference but it depends how much I drink and which color chip I decided lucky! Lol)
    I know people say you should let hosts find you but would my play be worthy of a host at Caesars?
    Can't wait to board my fight tomorrow morning!

    Yes, you will be a desirable player for most hosts. Not necessarily a high roller, but a solid mid-roller. You should get a mid-level suite and all reasonable food charges covered at that level of play. High-roller is a relative term, but I would think in today's gambling environment, a $250,000 credit line/front money player would be a high roller to most properties.

    Yeah, not a high roller, but certainly enough to get some upfront comps

    I'm a bit surprised that a host hasn't already contacted you.
    In any event, if I were in your shoes (I wish!), I would contact a host & tell him or her what you have planned & ask what they (CET) will be able to do for you.
    I would think (certainly) all meals for you & your group... and likely tickets to a show that all of you agree to see (ahead of time). I would also think that a room offer that would allow 4 or 5 to sleep comfortably would be in order...be it several rooms or a suite+room (it would be at the Mirage...at least in in the early-2000s it would have been).

    I would also think that they would offer transportation to & from the airport.
    As others have said...not really "high roller" (as in "whale"), but a very valuable customer, worthy of generous comps & extras.

    Certainly from my perspective, you are indeed a high-roller... to me, anybody betting $500+ a hand in blackjack is.
    Best of luck & no matter what - Have Fun!!

    They will certainly pick up all your food and beverage on the back end with that type of play unless you hit guy savoy or Omnia particularly hard. With only one day of play under your belt they may not put you in a big suite upfront--but the Augustus rooms have a nice sofa/chairs/dining table and have the feel of a Jr suite. Your play merits contacting a host upfront and asking about any free play they may be able to give you. In any case I would let a host book you in so you have a point of contact and someone looking at your bill during the stay.

    If you wired 50 to the cage a host should already have you in a decent sized suite.

    F&B will be on the backend the first trip because of little history.

    But if you play as you say they will pick up everything and bring you in at RFB.

    If you really wired them 50k and a host hasn't contacted you someone is dropping the ball. How you played $300-$1500/hand on your last trip for 3-4 hours and didn't have a host shaking your hand at some point or calling you shortly after you got home is beyond me. You definitely should have been contacted by one. First thing I would do with50k on deposit if you're worried about comps is ask to talk to a host.

    I have no doubt you intend to play big, but no offense, something here seems off.

    Something does not make sense here.

    You are well up in the high mid-roller. Did they not offer you anything besides a room to come play? You should be getting a suite. Caesars itself is often a bit tight, but any of the CET casinos should be offering you a suite, limo, etc. How many tier credits did you get on your last trip.

    Yup I wired money over Monday to make sure everything was all set in time for my arrival tomorrow and called the cage to confirm that they received it. They told me to go to the main cage when I arrive but other then that I haven't been contacted by anyone and I certainly wasn't introduced to anyone while I was at the table in May. I'm not super worried about comps but if my play constitutes to get something I will take it. I was just wondering what play would call the attention of a host.
    I just got back a few weeks ago from Atlantis on a family trip with the kids and had a executive host give me a call a couple days later and offered to comp another stay for five nights and would comp food and drinks based on my play. I just assumed I didn't qualify for anything but a free room from Caesars.

    My TC is 2568. And that was the first time I'd ever played at Caesars.

    Why not take a chance with hunter on the board. He is a Planet Hollywood host but he can set you up and review your play.

    That doesn't seem right. With the TR bonus system, you would have earned 1578 TC plus the 1000 bonus. I'm not a BJ player, so others can chime in. Does that seem right for $300-1500/hand and 3 or 4 hours?
    To me, 1578 TC in a day is not indicative of big play.....so it's not surprising that a host didn't reach out.
    BUT with $50k front money, a host should have called you.

    50k for 6-8 hrs per day with a 500-2500 bet spread is not enough bankroll to play at that level imho and might not last you long unless you get lucky. I would email hunter who is a caesars host and on this site with your player number to see what he can do for you. He is awesome!

    At that avg, you can hit a very bad streak early on.

    Have a great trip!!!

    I'm not sure of how the system works but I do know what I played. I was sitting at a $200 min table the whole time so I know there's no way my bet went under $200 lol Either way it's not a big deal I'm sure it will all work itself out in the long run. I just wasn't sure how my play was received by Caesars, if it wasn't enough to bother with. Either way I'm not going to receive comps, I'm going to have a great time and hopefully win some money :)

    That is just about right if the OP was rated at $300/hand

    he might have been given one and not even know it, it happend twice at 2 differnt cet properties to me, no email , nocard , no hand shake i found out when i asked for a tto i was told i had a host and at and other property i went into the host office to ask a question i was told i have a host there also, i think i have 3 dfiffernt host in vegas at 3 seperate properties no clue why. , they just put it link to you account, but i have them at differnt ones for differnt properties at cet in vegas dont ask why i stopped trying to figure it out along time ago.

    so have them look up your account you might have one depending were u played, just a suggestion

    i also belive and this personal if they know you get better ratings , also were you on the main floor or in hl room, and some times you get rated better at the lower end,than the higher end as they dont pay as much attention .

    I don't doubt your play. In was thinking that maybe they didn't rate you fairly/accurately.

    if he truly sat at the table for 3-4 hours and bet ill avarage to 750$ he should get alot more tr credits not including the bonus , shit if he sat at the table for 3-4 hours at 300$ per hand he probaly hit 1000 tr credits along if not more, thats my opinion.

    i think i hit 300$ i do over 500 tr credits in and hour or so .being local i dont sit long at cet so i hit 500 or usualy just under the 1000 credits on my own play

    this rough gustimates off the top of my head , so dont shoot me again

    CET is the wrong place for BJ action for 99% of people.

    I only don't say 100% cuz I know one guy where that's not true.
