    We stayed at the Venetian a few months ago for 4 nights and I played with a $2,000 gambling budget. Mostly played VP but made some sports bets and played some craps for a couple hours. I'm worried about taking them up on this offer and having it revoked at the end of our stay because I think they overrated me at the craps table.. I was the only person tipping and I was playing ($10 table) with $10 on the line, $30 odds and then place and ($10) come bets with 3x odds. By the time I left I dropped like $500 over the 2 hours.

    It was our first time at that casino so it was a paid reservation. While checking out they comped me one night and a $120~ dinner "based on my table game play." It seems like I got really overrated there... How often do they actually revoke comps based on underplay? Or is this more of a generic statement to cover them?

    *Offer is expressly conditioned upon recipient maintaining his or her historical level of play as of the mailing date of this offer. Failure to maintain historical level of play may result in revocation of offer.

    They are offering to comp us three nights and I want to go but I've got offers from MLife as well... I'd rather stay somewhere I know I'll be comped and not have to worry about a surprise bill at the end. A) they overcomped me at the table I'm sure, and B) my budget will be more like $1200-1500 for two days this time.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Take the Mlife guaranteed comp (as long as it's a decent hotel). Worrying about a comp can only lead to bad things....

    Okay... here we go.

    The wording is to protect against someone that has decent play when they SEND the offer, but in the meantime reverts to a lower level of play. At that point, the offer may not longer be valid. It is NOT to cover them on the current trip. If you walk in the door on an offer and maybe not play at the previous level, they will just stop sending you offers. Read the wording closely.

    And, to take it further. Even if you low played/no played - they can not charge you since you never agreed to any price? You are fine.

    YOU WILL NOT GET BILLED AT THE END OF YOUR STAY.

    It's boilerplate. MLife offers have similar language. It would take an extreme situation for them to invoke it. I can think of maybe one time in 10 years of reading Vegas boards where someone said they got charged, and I don't remember how credible a story it was.

    You don't need to worry about it.

    Also, in your case, you would actually be maintaining your historical level of play (which they may have incorrectly rated). If they were to say anything you about your drop off in play you could honestly reply that this is how you played last time, and are appreciative of how generous they are with their offers. That would probably end the conversation. These things happen and unless you are taking their private jet to have a butler wait on you in a villa, they will not make you pay.
