I've gambled at the MGM Mirage properties for years! Mainly, Beau Rivage and Bellagio. Yet, I've never used my Player's Card because I thought they may be able to control the slot machine payouts based on your winnings on the card.
I have now overcome those fears and have a serious question. This past weekend I used my card and earned nearly 4,000 points at MGM Mirage. I played the $5 dollar slots for hours. I think you earn 1 point for every $3 dollars. I know I put nearly $2000 of my own money in the machine - and with me losing winnings back in - probably gambled over $7000 dollars in the machines in 48 hours.
Does anyone know at what level they consider you a VIP? I know it varies by MGM Mirage property, but I mainly use Beau Rivage and don't mind putting some major bucks in if I knew their system better. I was surprised to see I only had earned 4000 points in 48 hours, but maybe that's not bad. Just looking for any and all advice on how the MGM Mirage works and rates their play - especially at their Beau Rivage property in Mississippi.
In closing, they did COMP 4 nights of my stay and I think one or two meals. So I guess that amount of points did mean something. Thanks!
