    I move around a lot during the day and less at night but I never just play where I stay.

    I play mostly where I stay, I'm mostly at MGM property's so when I do move round it's usually within their hotel also its due to I have markers those casino (since I don't carry cash)

    Usually stay at two hotels during my trips and concentrate about 90% of my play where I stay. For me that is mlife and Cosmo several times a year. We do casino hop on the strip for meals, shows, or just to look around but spend no more than 10% of my gambling money at other casinos.
    I stay at Wynn and Venetian once a year - and when staying there, I give them about 70% of my play which keeps the offers coming in; the other 30% is for downtown for one day of my trip since it's usually the only time I get downtown.

    Casino hop big time. I stay at GN and gamble a little bit there but I'm not a comp player so I'm not concerned about how much play I give them.

    75-100% where I stay. Unless it's the odd situation where I have a fantastic (usually teaser) offer from a place I like for food/hotel/etc. but don't care for the casino and don't really care about burning that bridge. But those come once in a blue moon.

    I prefer to play in casinos that I can't afford to stay in. But we hop around a lot in Vegas. We'll have days we spend at Palazzo or Wynn and other days we'll hit up Ellis Island or head downtown.

    Mostly where we stay. When we first started going to Vegas and were paying for rooms, food, etc we were all over the place. Since we have gained some status at CET, MGM and Stations we pretty much stay and play at those properties to keep our tier level. I love the freebies but I also miss casino hopping. Can't have it both ways.

    in the past I have bounced around but on this new trip I'm planning on playing where we stay so we can get our suite comped

    I hop a lot! I'm trying to make Sterling at Cosmo this time though, so I'm gonna try and stay put. But there is the CET Quest too, so that could be a distraction this trip!
     
    A very definite maybe, comped

    the CET quest reward isnt that much, I feel like the 2500 or 5000 tier credit day rewards are much much more rewarding (though that level is pretty darn expensive)

    75% where we are staying. Dsytime more likely to play elsewhere at night at home hotel. Playing at home casino easier for when wife gets tired.

    We hop around during the day but usually stick at or close to where we are staying at night.

    I mostly hop during the day but late at night, tend to stay at home casino.... shorter distance to the room if I ever have to crawl my way :D


    I did the quest reward this past weekend and went to all 9 CET casinos. Doing the math, earn 225 credits (25 each) to get 2250 extra (10 times) versus earning 2500 for +5000 (x2) and 5000 for +10000 (x2). But you could still make the daily tier bonuses on top of the quest though. So no worries, just an additional way to get TCs.

    Morning and evening at my home casino. During the day I am all over downtown. Probably 75 per cent at my home casino.
