    A have a few reasons to why I want to stay at the luxor but they don't have the games I want. Rather than having a no play trip, I would happily play at the MGM Grand. Does that mess up your ADT? Is it better not to play at all?

    IMHO, they are both mLife casinos, so it shouldn't unless you have a low level host who is managing your trip and only gets credit at the hotel he/she books you at.

    The thing that bothers me about doing this, when I do it, is that if your Luxor offer comes with free play, then it has to be played off at Luxor, even if you want to do the bulk of your play at another one of their properties.. So, there will be activity at Luxor (a trip). Does it get added to the play at the other property and summed as one number? Or does each property do a theoretical based on only play at that casino? Opinions are a dime a dozen, but I doubt anyone has reliable info as to whether that hurts your rating. I'd say doing this hurt my future offers a bit, from my experience doing it. But, I'd probably do it again.

    MyVegas has no offers attached to it

    It shouldn't hurt you at all to stay at one property and play at another.

    In the recent past, playing at a given property would sometimes result in you getting separate offers from that property, in addition to corporate offers.

    I'm not sure that even happens any more.

    I don't do it that often, but I've never seen any difference in my offers when I spread my play around at different MGM casinos during a trip vs doing all my play at the property I'm staying at.

    I think low-playing (ie well below your usual daily average) would probably hurt you.

    I did book a single night once at MGM Grand on an offer to get freeplay and dining credit, went over there and checked in but only used the freeplay and resort credit, didn't play or stay there that night, and I somehow got off scot-free. But I used to stay there a lot, so I think I just got a one-time hall pass on that one.

    Regarding whether booking a MyVegas room will affect your MLife offers if you don’t play, I’ll also mention that I have the same curiosity, and I happen to know @tornadobox was wondering the same thing.

    Is this something you’d be willing to ask your MyVegas host? I feel like a lot of us would feel better about booking rooms from MyVegas if it came with reasonable certainty that it wouldn’t trigger a gaming day.

    I will ask, but please remember that Playstudios hosts are NOT mLife employees, so their answers cannot be taken with 100% certainty.

    However, in the past, I have been told that they are what I classify as NGO (No Gaming Obligation) days, and I believe that is why you cannot use myVegas/myKonami comp days with the HGS promotion.

    I stayed at NYNY last year on a 2 day MYVegas comp. I played a reasonable amount and lost a little more than normal. Went to the desk at the end and talked to a host about getting some charges comped. I asked her specifically about the MyVegas stay and she stated that it wasn't a charge for the casino, so she could comp me without factoring the room comp. She did take off about $275 in room charges which would have been about right for what I played assuming the room cost wasn't a factor.

    So I don't think the no play would affect you in terms of being overcomped. However, I would think it still counts as a gaming day as they know you are on property. Therefore a no play or low play would affect your ADT. I think if you played at MGM that should be fine regarding your ADT.

    I'm sorry. I totally missed that it was a myVegas comp in the OPs title.

    This is my understanding of the myVegas comps (pending verification by my Playstudios/myVegas host)

    A myVegas comp room is what I like to call "NGO", or. No Gaming Obligation since it was paid for "up front". However, swiping your mLife card at any casino will incur a gaming day.

    I am going on a three day "custom" comp to Bellagio and have no gaming obligation, but I will play on the trip, but it will be as if I was not staying at Bellagio and just "dropped in".

    I am trying to reconcile this in my head. I am assuming you are not receiving comped nights from Mlife, or else you wouldn't need a MyVegas room. If I am correct, then your ADT doesn't warrant comps, so you wouldn't be messing it up since it wasn't high enough for a comped room anyway.

    What I can tell you from my own personal experience is I used MyVegas for nights at Aria and Bellagio, and began receiving offers from Luxor and Excalibur, which I did not use. Then I stayed at Mirage and that play got NYNY and Park MGM nights to show up as comped. So I don't think it matters at all where you play on a Myvegas room.

    It makes sense that MyVegas is not a casino operation, because each casino is a separate entity. So no casino is paying for your room when you stay on a MyVegas comp.

    Of course, even if you're using a MyVegas comp, once you DO start playing, now you're affecting your ADT.

    One thing I just realized is they still charge you resort fees which may not be worth it...

    I receive MLife comps and could get a free room, however, I have a ton of MyVegas points and on this particular short trip, I'm hardly going to spend any time in the room and won't have a lot of time to gamble this trip.
