    I always play $100-$200 minimum per hand when I play in Vegas. If I lower my hand to $50 per hand, will this lower my average bet which can ultimately lower my comps? Also, will playing $1 per spin in slows lower my average bet? I have never played slots and want to try it out.

    Rating for $100 per hand is higher than $50 per hand. Not sure what the question is.

    Don't worry about throwing a few dollars at slots if you are usually a table games player. Nothing I have experienced or read suggests that this will hurt your ratings in any way.

    You need to describe the scenario where you are playing lower than usual. Are you staying where you are playing? Are you coming in on an offer? Do you have a host? What is your history at the property? Are you concerned about comps this trip, future casino marketing offers, future comps throgh a host?

    Provide some more information and you should get some helpful responses.

    Thank you for your help. I received a 3 night offer from MB so I booked it. I was wondering if my offers will be revoked later in the future if I drop my bets to $50 per hand instead of playing my usual $100-$200 per hand. I do not have a host. The offer was from corporate MLife.

    Will you be rated if you are playing under $100 per hand? I heard that some casinos won't rate you unless you are betting at least $100 per hand.

    Your offers won't go away completely, but obviously you won't be rated as highly if you cut your level of play by that much - you'd essentially be cutting your pay in half [or more], so your theo - and therefore resultant comps & future offers - would logically also decline accordingly.

    Most strip places will rate you at $25/hand & up, and the mid & lower end places will probably still rate table play even lower than that. But expecting to get the same offers & comps going forward if you cut your average bet down to 25-50% of what it was? Yeah, you're going to take a hit for that.

    Now it's easier! Your marketing offers may drop if they are based on a history of $100-$200 play and you put in a trip of $50 play. But there are plenty of accounts of people doing similar and still getting good offers. Casino marketing may 'forgive' one trip with less play if you have a history of usually playing higher.

    Some people seem to have just given up on a casino group and given them no play, while staying on a casino marketing offer, and then find that another offer arrives! Nobody fully understands how it all works, there seem to be so many variables, but you obviously risk getting lower offers if you drop your play.

    As for rating, every casino will rate you at $25+. Some casinos will not rate at a lower bet.

    If you're a normal table game player and just play a little on slots, my experience is that they don't really count that in to your rating.
