    If you have been getting good offers from your go to casino and you want to try a different property do you want to have your main casino know that you were in town but stayed some where else. Example you go to MLife properties 2 times a year but want to stay at a CET. Would you pop in at a MLife property and play a little, do you think they might pull back on their offers.

    Don't play only "a little" if you have a history with a chain, it'll normally hurt your offers. Casinos don't get jealous.

    Yep, I agree. Don't step foot inside your home casino but there's not nothing wrong testing the waters elsewhere.

    Agree with previous posters. If I'm staying at a non mlife property and want to play a "little" at mlife, I just don't use my card.

    All offers are based on your average play. Once you put a card into a machine or give to a pit guy or buy food with card, etc... the computer starts tracking you. It gets added into your average. Offers are based on average play.

    Be aware of how this works.

    FYI - we often take offers from mlife and CET and spread play across them. Yea, would get better offers if focused one vs the other, but...

    I've moved away from doing that in recent years. I now do not use my card at an mLife property or Cosmo unless I am planning on putting in a substantial session. I haven't stayed at a Caesars property in 5 years so I do use my card as I am not concerned about offers from them.

    Do what you want. Enjoy your trip!

    I continue to be amazed at how many people who don't play for comps, play for comps.

    IMHO, playing for comps and maximizing comps are different concepts.

    Agreed. I gamble enough that I don't pay for rooms and get FP and Resort credit each trip. I won't play a session just to get comps but it makes sense to make sure that I play in a way that doesn't reduce these. I've been to Vegas enough times that I have gambled at every strip and downtown casino so bouncing around is not necessary.

    Yes, never nero- or zero-play a property while rated as your ADT will drop and likely your offers.

    Imagine the following cruel joke: Your acquaintance is a 7* member with CET, but you are a filthy gold cardholder. You are both staying at MGM, and for some reason, you have a falling-out over the course of the night. To get even, you quickly take your acquaintance's 7* card and mad-dash north to Harrah's. Your acquaintance catches up with you but sees that you've placed h/er card in a penny slot with "one line, bet 1 per line" selected. You have an evil grin on your face and yell "I'll do it...I'll do it!" with the handle in your hand.

    Casino security, CCSD, and SWAT have descended on Harrah's for hostage negotiation. They think: "What monster would even think of low-playing a 7 stars card?" "At least push max bet!" "Won't somebody please think of the average daily theoretical?"

    You wouldn't do this to your card, would you?

    The above scenario has happened to me... inadvertently or course. Left card in machine late at night. Somebody played it few a few bucks the next morning and it hit my ADT. I have gotten way better about taking the card out now.
