    Hey All,
    I'm new to the forum and relatively new to Las Vegas. I am typically a $5 or $10 table gamer. With BJ, I typically try to find a $10 table and wager no more than $20 base bet on a hand. At Craps, I typically do a pass or don't pass with single odds, and maybe a minimum place bet on 6 or 8, with progression or regression depending on my mood and bankroll. I have singed up for mLife and TotalRewards based on the two five-day trips I have taken in the past. I have heard strip properties are a little more stingy on the comps than downtown casinos.
    Sometimes I grind out a 3 or 4 hour craps session on a $300 starting bankroll playing as described above.
    I know at this level of play, I won't be earning any hotel room comps or more lavish rewards, but are there any venues downtown where I can feasibly earn a buffet comp or meal credit playing at this level?
    I'd really love to go to a downtown casino, play 4 hours of $10 BJ or craps and maybe earn a buffet voucher, is this even possible?

    I'd say you have a good chance at the Boyd properties (Main Street Station, The Cal, & Fremont).
    Although The Cal doesn't have a buffet, and I don't care much for the Fremont buffet. MSS has a great buffet.

    Welcome to the board.

    Ty: Thanks for the advice on getting a buffet or meal comp at Boyd Properties.
    Can't wait to play those places next time I go to Vegas.

    I have never been turned down at Main Street when asking for a buffet comp at a table. Usually buy in for $40-100, and ask shortly after sitting down, they always ask "how many?" whenever I ask. I'm a lowly sapphire there, but they treat their guests very well.

    No idea if it helps or not, but I always tip the dealers and CWs very well.
