    Hi All,

    I'm new here but not to Las Vegas. I used to play 21 quite a bit but quit playing about 15 years ago. I'm in Vegas more and more for business and I'm looking for a little advice on what current comp rates are.

    I'm not looking for any kind of pre-arrival comp or am I playing for comps. I pay for the room I want in the hotel I want and I eat where I want. The casino providing a comp has no bearing on what I do.

    That said this last trip I had a $25K line @ Wynn. Average bet was about $600. What can I realistically expect to receive?

    Thanks in advance.

    Assuming you are playing blackjack with that average, you can expect to earn about $140 in comps for every hour of BJ you play

    Is that the approximate ratio 1:4?

    Thanks

    It will be a time/avg. bet calculation. My monkey math of explaining UKFanatic shows about 60 hands an hour at blackjack, so $36k in bets x 1% house edge - for $360 expected loss, and maybe 40% of that comped, so about the $140 like he says.

    Do all casinos use a 1% house edge for blackjack or does it vary by the rules and the skill of the player?

    Depends on the BJ rules. At the best rules, the HA is actually lower. Some rules its higher. I used that number for sake of convenience, which is why I said the comps are "about" $140 an hour. So there is some range on BJ, but its not huge. I have heard that some casinos also rate the player's skill level, but I have never personally confirmed this.
