    I will be staying at the Wynn next week. Can anyone let me know if they typically have lower min than $25 mid week? For being rated do they want $25 and up or would $15(assuming they have them) be OK to throw my card out for being rated? I know MGM casino's only allow $25 and up to be rated so would assume this to be the case, but since I have never played tables there wanted to check.

    I'm pretty sure Wynn rates everything. One thing I know, when they scan your card your picture shows up on their screen. I'm pretty sure it's the picture from your drivers license.

    Mid week nights you'll find $15 tables, even a few $10 occasionally. During the day, you'll find plenty of sub $25 tables. Encore is usually even cheaper.

    I don't know about getting rated below a quarter. But they will take your card regardless of what you're betting. (Whether they are rating you or simply humoring you, I don't know.)

    If you want the cheapest table at the fanciest place, why worry about getting rated?

    Even if they rate the under $25 bet, you will hardly get any comps.

    Wynn doesn't even have s17 on the main floor anymore, right? Encore has maybe 4 s17 tables but not all 4 are open most of the time. mGM is the way to go if you want to play BJ now days.

    Wynn and Encore both have plenty of S17 tables - 6D, S17, DAS, RSA, LS to be exact. Usually $50 during the day, $100 at night. I would not be staying there if they didn't.

    But, you are right. No one can touch the MGM properties for BJ rules.

    When Wynn first opened both of the 2 large bj pits across and down from the "B Bar" were s17. Now only the one closest to the "B Bar" and the two floor DD games is s17. And it sometimes is not open during the day, although I have seen it open in the am, 3 tables, and $25 sometimes also.
    Less than $25 will not get you anything and they are only humoring you by taking your card.

    +1. Dont mean to be a dick, but if you are going to walk into Encore, and splash around $10 bets......Lets just say they "may" rate you, but I wouldnt be running to kiosks to check your points.

    Thanks for the insight.

    I am not to concerned about getting rated, at a small bet, $15 per hand and up.

    However, if they do take your card then I do want to give it. Kind of like playing a single line .25 slot machine for an hour, and not putting your card in. Yea its low roll'in but even a few slot points would generate some casino discounts to be sent. I look at it as some play is better than no play and by not handing them my card, its as if I was never there.(AGAIN, I get that its low bets, and they may not even rate me) so just wanted to see what the rule of thumb was on giving your card

    Does Wynn/Encore even have kiosks?

    The general program for comps calls for $25 per hand for 4 hours to earn a buffet comp. Granted, their buffet is not the cheapest either, so there is some value there. Your would need to do six hours at $15 to even have a shot at it. It would be the pit supervisors call, but this means spending your entire afternoon, and a little more, trying to earn it. What will happen is you will end up on their mailing list and receive reduced rates on occasion. You would be time ahead (Not necessarily money) playing slots for a couple of hours at their dollar machines. You would get the same mailing offers, perhaps once or twice a year.

    Tip well and be friendly, and you can score a buffet comp for a lot less play than you might expect at Wynncore (certainly less than the $25/hand for 4 hours they quote). Just ask the pit boss.

    $100 / hand for four hours will get the minimum rating of a free room. Less will get you discounted rooms.

    While I still refuse to pay for a room when I can get it for free, just a little play(talking 30 minutes or less on each trip) at $25 and under gets me discounted room offers. They aren't free, but they are easily 50% off the rate I'd be paying with no card. That is a decent discount for very little playing.

    theres usually 1 or 2 15 dollar tables with one seat resrved for handicap ,i belive its the law and the have to have a handicap seat and the table is lower closer to floor for wheel chairs.

    i can tell you if you play around 20 $ a hand for around 8 straight hours you will get around 70 $ in comps if my memory i correct.
