    Hello, looking for players that play here at the Cosmo. What is the average coin in for slots that hosts there want to see for free rooms and free play/free food?

    Also for table play same question?

    Thanks guys.

    Get midweek offers (2 free nts) for less than 4000 coin in. They do not match other cards levels (ie Platinum at MLife or Diamond at TR)

    I earned just over 4000 points (about 3000 of those on slots and the other 1000 on food and pool spend) on my 2 day trip this May. I received an incredible marketing offer for 4 nights (weekends included) in a terrace 1 bedroom. I don't imagine this is a normal offer and might even have been a mistake or maybe just because summer is slower? This was the first time I had stayed with them so maybe it is because of that? I did ask one of the hosts if this was a normal type of offer and the response was no. :)

    When I asked about how much play would be required to get a room that was not on a marketing offer the response was
    " We usually look for about 3000-5000 points earned per day to cover a room comp."

    That all being said I had a fantastic time when I was there and am looking forward to my upcoming 4 day stay.

    I don't have time to find the email right now (leaving for Vegas in an hour)! But my Cosmo host let me know last year a bit of detail pertaining to comping rooms. I can say that it's not as stingy as some may think, I would put it on par with CET properties. They use your Theo OR actual loss, whichever one is higher, and I personally have the feeling that their host (at least mine) do not mind comping rooms to try a new player out. FYI my host comped me two nights facing Bellagio before I dropped a dime into a machine, I was lost, he showed me the direction to the Buffet and we started talking and he comped me two nights.

    Good Luck on your trip! I'll be in Vegas at the Cosmo Wednesday. Report back your coin in and Comps you get! ;)

    Won't be at the Cosmo this trip actually. Staying at MSS and Bally's, already comped (MSS actually went ahead and comped my next 3 trips, they are pretty generous).

    I did remember some more detail if Cosmo comps though, my host would always ask how much money I was bringing. I believe for a fountain view terrace, he wanted you to bring about 1k per day, and not be afraid to play it. If you are a video poker player this may not be such a bad deal, I think there is still one machine in their high limit with 9/6 Jack's or better, it's a multiline spin poker $1, but obviously you can just play one line and it be like regular. The biggest problem I have doing this is the cards look so different on spin poker I find it very hard to play quickly, and effeciently at the same time.

    Hey Ryno, thank you for the nod!

    Chuck is busy tearing up Vegas as we speak, so I'll give my feedback, but he'll have more insight than I do....he's my go-to on comp questions too. :)

    I personally target front-end comps (corporate) versus back end comps, which is a whole different ball of wax.

    So, unfortunately, I have no idea on what daily coin-in a Cosmo host might look for to give backend comps. (But I bet there are some great resources on VMB that DO have an idea!)

    If the OP is looking to build future corporate offers though/front-end comps, I DO think Cosmo has the best player reward program on the strip, and they've been amazing on generosity trip after trip. Back-end comps just aren't an area I am comfortable ebough with to comment on.

    Bottomline, it's a great hotel and has been phenomenal to us, and many other VMBers...good luck!

    I was new to Identity a couple years ago and play just slots/VP...I played around a thousand coin-in on slots and grinded away breaking even on VP for a couple hours one trip just after getting the card and was receiving monthly 2-night midweek offers for about a year after. Even though I've since advanced to Sterling it's slowed down a bit now (as have offers from just about everywhere) but I still think Identity is about the most fair and easy to advance program out there. I feel like I have a decent shot at making Gold on my August trip and that's where some of the better benefits start opening up.

    I never minded once, I am sure like most things it's a matter of personal opinion, but I prefer my host to be upfront, blunt, and honest with me, at least any host I have outside of my home casino. We all know they expect a certain level of play to give us comps, I don't want to be sitting there wondering if I need to play more just to make them happy, at that point I am better off without a host at all.

    It doesn't really matter how much money you bring it's how much money you run thru the machines. Happy you don't mind but my hosts' are also upfront and honest with me without asking a stupid question like that. They know my play history and I'm comped accordingly, pv wraparound and f/b /fp at Cosmo and the like at any other property I choose to stay at.

    Well there's one difference right there, I only played at Cosmo twice, I had no play history there. Asking how much money I was bringing was his way of trying to gauge how much I would be running through a machine, which I can't blame him at all for when he did not know me from Adam the first time we met. He comped me two nights before I dropped a dime into one of their machines.

    Cosmo comps are completely theo driven, and if you play video poker they use the actual pay tables, so coin-in isn't quite as meaningful as it is in other places. That said, I've also heard the 3000pt threshold to cover a room. In practice, that seems just a little on the high side for slots. That would be 7500 coin-in and I know I've done less than that and got some back end comps. The back end comps I've received seem to be exactly in line with the theo on the trip. The Identity program builds free play fast. With the quality of the drinks, food, and property, I'm very happy with how I'm treated there.
