    We are LOW rollers usually planning on 200-300$/day gambling budget for wife and me, total. Usually go to vegas for 7-10 days (as I lose the first 2-3 days due to medical situation). Sometimes 1 trip/yr, sometimes twice. I know that a lot depends on coin in and we do get offers from both CET (free rms during slow times @ Paris/PH and 60% discount on busy times), and some MGM prop. (usually Mirage for 60% off). Also we play locally @ both CET and MGM properties. Would it be worth finding a host or are we getting about the best offers we can hope for?

    Typically when you are playing enough to have a host, they will approach you or contact you. It's not unusual for people to have a host approach them on the floor while playing once they reach a certain level of play. I can tell by what you said in your opening post for the amount of play you have in LV that you will not qualify for a host, especially if you're not even getting free weekends at any properties now. You didn't mention your level of play at your local casino, but if it is anything like your play in LV, you will not qualify to have a host assigned to you. (and when I say "qualify", that's really a level left up to that individual property and also even more up to the hosts who work there)

    If some of your offers are discounted vs. free - then your play level is probably not high enough.

    A few tips to get better offers. If you are playing slots or vp, try putting all your play on ONE card number. Also, be careful about short play days, especially at CET. Stopping in to play $50 is going to cause more hurt than gain.

    In your case, no.

    If you were actually able to get in touch with a host, it is likely that they would just give you a 2 minute speech, if that, about how the loyalty program works and then if you have any further questions direct you to the player club booth on the casino floor.
