    I spent this past weekend in Atlantic City with some friends and family for my Bday. I had two rooms at Caesars and booked a third room at the Borgata. Truth be told, I double booked the room but gave to a non-gambling friend to use. Because my homebase for the weekend was at Caesars, I focused most of my play there and at Bally's and played only minimally at the Borgata.

    I asked my Borgata host for my ADT figures:

    Time 2:20 BLACKJACK $427 avg bet; $3,000 buy in; $600 win; 546 theo.

    Then I asked him if that play was enough to cover the room for two nights, and what the comp value of the room was.

    His response surprised me: Blackjack – rating of 5 to 7 hours per day on weekends; rooms expense on a weekend was approx. $728 before tax for the weekend.

    I responded: "Wow, I didn't know that there's an expectation of 7-9 hours of play per day! Or that the comp value of the rooms are so high. I'll keep that in mind for the future."

    My thoughts are that the 7-9 hours of play per day is high. Isn't it usually 4 hours of play? Also, the comp value of a room at the Borgata of $364 per night for a standard room is around the same if I booked directly through the Borgata online.

    Me thinks that he's not being truthful with me with those figures and is indirectly trying to tell me that I was overcomped and I need to play more.

    Thoughts?

    For your level of play 8 hours would have gave you $1820 theo for the day, so $600 comps would be fair. That almost covers both nights at the rate he quoted.

    $364 per night seems steep for a standard room. Retail can be cheaper than that like you mention. Them wanting $750 theo a day for a room wouldn't be unreasonable though. That place is in more demand than the rest of AC combined.

    Thanks Tring for confirming some of my suspicions.

    How do you calculate my theo to be $1820?

    I meant if you played 8 hours like he suggested for the day with that avg bet instead of 2:20, then your theo would be roughly $1820.

    Seems like a crazy high requirement for a free room. I'd go with Caesars and the 7 stars lounge.
