Wynn comps... Am I on the hook?

    Excuse the newbie here...

    So, I have gambled at the Wynn exactly one time, about two months ago. $300 initial dollar in the machine, which turned in to around $1800 at one point, then played down back to even. This involved around 6 hours of play one night and maybe two the next day. I have never stayed at the Wynn. I don't know exactly how many points I have accrued during this time, but I think it was somewhere near 5000 if not a bit north of that number. We enjoyed our time in the casino and walked away even, I was content.

    Before I started to gamble, I registered for a red card. So... Here comes the good part (I think?). I received an offer about a week ago for 3 comped rooms, plus 200 f&b per day plus $1000 free credit. This arrived in the form of an email with a promotional code attached and I had to call the number to book my stay (was unable to book online). I did not speak with a host, just someone in the marketing department. They booked me in a parlor suite for three nights.

    I guess I'm confused. I don't feel like a high roller. I don't feel like I should be comped this but maybe they're trying (successfully I might add) to get me to come back with an offer that is too good to turn down.

    As this was a promotional offer, and I have never stayed, I shouldn't be on the hook if my gambling doesn't meet their minimum play for the comp, correct? I have read the terms and conditions of the offer, they simply state that additional comps beyond what is already offered are based on 5000 points in slot play a day. I just want to make sure this is customary for vegas... I certainly didn't expect this offer so it took me by surprise. Since it has all been arranged up front, I shouldn't be liable to meet any minimums correct?

    This doesn't mean I don't plan to gamble... With a little luck, the free play could turn in to plenty of fun in the casino for our three day stay.

    Help a vegas newbie understand. Thanks!

    You are correct, the upfront comps do not make you obligated the play a certain amount, but if you ask for charges to be taken off when you check out, they will review your play that trip and base backend comps on that.

    You probably got this offer because you played a good amount in a single day. Not sure what denom slot you played, but you played six hours of one of the highest HA games in the place...so in their system you are labelled as a large player.

    Enjoy the comps! Don't feel pressure and don't play above what you are comfortable with.

    I don't know the accrual rate of wynns player program, but if you look it up, you can probably back calc how much coin in you did that day...

    Yeah, so it looks like it's 1 point for every 1.5 dollars in, meaning I'm looking at around $7500 coin in. I have stayed at other casinos before on comps, but not in Vegas and certainly not of this caliber, so it's reassuring to know that I can just enjoy my stay without pressure. I have previously stayed at the palazzo and done minimal gambling (I drive through vegas once every few months and usually stop for the night) , but it's near impossible to turn the Wynn down with offers like this one.

    Looked it up cause I can't sleep,

    Its 1 point for every $1.50 coin in...so if you really have 5000 points, that's only $7500 coin in...which really isn't that much.

    Assume a high 10% HA that's $750 theo, which conservatively should be about $300 in comps

    So the offer you got is fantastic! Enjoy it

    Exactly. I feel like I'm getting over comped to an extreme, but if there is no pressure I have no problem using the offer. Thanks for the help.

    Regarding the denominations, anywhere from $3 to $8 per spin (aka max bet on different machines). My point number could also be off... I just seem to remember that 5000 point number for some reason.

    I am guessing your points are higher that memory serves you.

    Can you log into your account online and see your points?

    In any event, you can take that offer any play NOTHING and be okay. They will never invite you back, but you will be okay.
    Also, with that size offer, there is a very low chance they will comp anything additonal at the end of your stay unless you play LOTS! But, with what they are already giving you, YEA!

    I imagine they want similar play to give you future offers. If not, then I am sure they will reduce it. I notice this at all the places that comp with an initial good offer and then my play doesn't warrant another offer. Great offer and have fun!

    I'm not suggest that you stiff them by any means, but don't think that you "OWE" them any play....if your points are accurate (or even double what you think they are), it's a great offer!!!

    My advice would be to take the offer, enjoy your Room/FB and freeplay you will love the property, it is great!
    I'm willing to bet (as is the casino obviously) that you will end up playing there anyway, I know I did when they sent me a fishing offer!
