Does hotel stay matter when casinos calculate offers?

    I'm thinking of doing a walkthrough of mlife, V/P, wynn, or cosmo on my next trip. I'm usually CET but i didn't hit diamond for 2020 so i like the idea of trying something new for this year.

    Just seeing what rewards clubs to avoid if walkthroughs (not having a room reservation) will count against the calculation of teaser offers

    For example, the reason why CET hooked me for the last 2 years was because of the outrageous teaser offer they gave me as a new player with just 2 hours of walk in play. Hoping to find a similar rewards program that has that same process

    As far as I know, none of them would count it against you. If anything, it would help you if it's your first time gambling at a new location with their reward card. They know you're staying somewhere else so if you play a bit then they want you to come over to their resort.
    But I'm not an expert on this soooo maybe someone else can give some input.

    Not a problem.

    Remember, a very large number of people do not have a hotel room in Vegas.... meaning someone else in their group (spouse, etc) has a room with guests in the room. In those cases, they do not know if you have a room or not. They MIGHT track the room, but only if the card number is attached to that reservation. And even that is discussed in depth with no 100% surety.


    The primary focus on comps/offers is average coin in (play) per day.

    Awesome. Then what's the loosest rewards program as far as teaser rates or comps after an initial walkthrough for a new player (not counting CET of course). i would probably settle into those options as the initial "investment" wouldn't be as much just to try out a future reservation.

    If anything, not having a room can help a teaser offer. They look at it like hey this guy who wasn't staying with us came in and did x number of coin in in 2 hours, we should try to capture him and hope he plays like that.

    Wynn has historically had a decent teaser program, but if you go in and play hard for an hour or two at a place with no history at all (never had a card) you will likely get some sort of trial offer

    I have always got junky offers from mgm until I stayed there last year and played a bunch. I get teaser wynn offers but its 100/night still. Cosmo is the only one who gave me a good offer after I hung out there for an afternoon and played. I had a "come back for freeplay" in my email the next day, so I went back the next afternoon. (i took 2 or 300 with my and played it though until I lost, which was actually pretty slow. I was there for hours). 2 weeks later I had an offer with a terrace one bedroom and a little free play, which I had never had so was stoked. It's been my home ever since. I was just playing to lose slower because caesars was eating my money. I wasn't trying for offers. No idea what my coin in would be but I hit my 1000 points for the free buffet easily, and I was betting low, $1/2 per spin. Nothing gung ho. That was about 4 years ago now.
