    can you get free tickets with comp rooms? or ask a host at the casino you have the best play at if they can get free tickets with your comp room? if anyone has tried asking a host?

    Just like anything else, anything is POSSIBLE. Compute the cost of free tickets and that's what level you'd have to be playing to get 'em for free

    Unless the hotel has some arrangement with the Raiders, this would definitely be a hard (cost) comp. Hosts have more leniency to comp rooms, meals at hotel owned restaurants, limos, etc. Like @DaiLun said above though, anything's possible with the right level of play.

    If you're not already getting comped a suite on a weekend at a higher-end Strip property, you're not getting comped Raiders tickets. Probably not Golden Knights tickets, either.

    I believe the only casino company with a box at the Raiders stadium is Wynn. And you need to be at least a strong player or , more likely, a high roller to get that comp. Otherwise, I'm sure other casinos and their hosts have access to tickets. But as said, its a hrd comp because they are paying retail for those. So again, you probably need to at least be rated as a strong player

    Caesars offered me preseasons Raiders tickets so I doubt it is impossible, but I imagine play would need to be quite substantial.

    It's possible, my brother got 4 tickets to the Washington game on the 40 yard line. He stays in a suite at the aria comped with his buddies. All 4 are over 100 a hand bj players for long hours a day. Usually plays two hands at a time.

    I believe Wynn has field level suites like a night club while MGM has regular suites and I think Caesars has the cheapest "club" seats.

    So we got comp Raider tickets for this weekend's game, but we put in this request several months ago, and got 2 tickets for the Wynn suite, and 2 on the 50 yd line. This was through the Wynn. I heard there was so much demand for tickets to this weekend's game that Wynn was buying tickets on the open market to supply to their customers. I think a lot of the comp tickets depends on a particular casino's relationship with the stadium / Raiders, do they have a block of tickets for each game, are they buying retail on the open market or through Ticketmaster, etc

    This is a supply/demand issue. It will vary from property to property. Game to game. There are too many variables to say what it takes to get comp tickets.

    If you want to see a gameā€¦ask your host.

    I would love to know the property and person that told you this, as that number is preposterous on a variety of levels, unless you asked for like 20 tickets. Even if the property had no relationship with the raiders and waited to buy on the secondary market, nosebleed seats for their next home game are available for around 250 bucks. Compable value off 25k trip theo is around 8300, so even if they comped you 20 tickets at 250 bucks apiece that would 5k hard cost which would probably resolve that. Assuming you were looking for a reasonable number of seats, and you stay 3 nights with a room comp cost of 300 per night that leaves you about 7300 that could be comped. Lower bowl tickets for the 10/10 game can be had for a few hundred on the secondary market so even 4 tickets in the lower bowl eat up maybe 5k in comps which would still leave you 2300 in residual comps for food beverage and transport. Overall I would say if a host gave you that number he just doesn't want to deal with it.

    For reference 25k theo would be 250k coin in on penny slots, 1 mill on 2.5% video poker and about 2.5 million for BJ Bacc or Craps.
