    I will be in AC next week and will be staying in a comped room( only resort fees of $32/night) at Bally's for two nights. I have never had any charges waived off in my earlier trips. As I read through the posts on the board, I understood that the charges can be waived off if you have significant amount of play during your stay. I am mostly a table games player with most of my time spent playing craps. This trip I might try the top dollar machine and play slots for a while. In your experience, how much play do I need to have my resort fees waived off at the least? Also, if I have that much play, do I just approach the front desk while checking out to waive the fees? I am a low- mid roller and do not have a host. TIA.

    IMHO, speaking strictly of my experience in Las Vegas, first you have to earn enough to cover the room comp, that is typically 500TC a day ($2500 in slot action), above that, probably another 250TC per day.

    You would call the host on duty at checkout to inquire. Front desk people can't help you on backend comps unless you're applying RCs.

    The general rule of thumb for blackjack is your average for 4 hours is roughly what they can comp. But I wouldn't really worry too much about it. Do your normal gambling and before you check out go see a host on duty and see if they can do anything for you. Never hurts to ask and only takes a few minutes. You'll lose way more than the $64 trying to chase a comp. If you're a green chip player that 2 and a half units.

    Sorry for the naive question, but I haven't done this before. Do I call the operator and ask to be connected to the host on duty? Or is there normally a separate Booth where I can see them?

    If looking for a host in general, I'll go up the club both and ask to speak to a host. Sometimes they will point me to the hosts office, usually near the high limit room. Other times they will ask me what I need and then ring the office if they cant help.

    Sometimes, after i tell them what I'm looking for, they will tell the hosts office (if they cant just do it themselves) and other times they will put me on the phone to talk to them, if they didnt send me to the office in person.

    I have never once been told i couldnt talk to a host of duty. So its easy to hunt one down.

    About a month ago at the Total Rewards Desk at Caesars AC I noticed a video screen on the wall that lists the names and phone numbers of hosts on duty. I believe the TR desk at Bally's has the same screens.

    And if you like Oysters, Harry's has buck a shuck happy hour 4-6:30 with $3 Bud Lights and $4 Blue Point Toasted Lager, $5 House wines and well gin and vodka cocktails. Plus real OTC oyster crackers and horseradish. :woot:

    These AC threads are making me want to book a weekend trip...ugh! I can't go though because Vegas is right around the corner and I don't want pre-empt that trip. Anyway, as mentioned before, chasing the comp isn't worthwhile. You're better off playing your usual amount and making your way towards Diamond :) AC takes care of its Diamond players nicely.

    Ask for VIP services from your hotel phone. It's less intimidating and embarrassing if they say no.
