    Any guesses what kind of play would be needed to score some tickets? Would love to go to a game, but have no clue what the demand would be, or how many tickets/suites the casinos will have. I imagine they'll have a bunch, and obviously MLife properties will lead the way, but have no idea how it will be handled.

    im sure they will be easy . if not from mlife too just buying them from stub hub ,nothing is really big in vegas and the hockey thing we dont care about its a casino perk .it will be over priced crap that will sell for pennies on the dollar in the secondary market.

    My older son (30) has asked me if I can get front row seats for the first time the Vancouver Canucks play in Vegas. I asked my host. She said definitely. Although I know I can get tix comped 4 seats or more anywhere,,they may not be front row yet. But my host would work it. I know I'll have seats, whether its in a skybox, a suite, or the MLife general VIP area, or wherever...but for the first Nuck game they want to come down first row. Ahhh...Shit your son asks for..I have yet not begun to gamble in 2017. Stuff changes.

    What kind of comps do you usually get, if you don't mind me asking? My next trip will be 3 nights in a NYNY suite, with $150 RC. I hope that gets me some tickets. Like posted above, I can't see demand being that high.

    sounds like it will be treated like any other "show" in vegas and fairly easy to get comps for

    First season will not be an "easy" ticket. Season tickets have sold out. This is after all Vegas' first pro team. Now when they go 30-50 in first season....

    I get whatever I ask for, as host knows I don't use all my comps every trip, and I dine very little, but she knows when my boys come down, put the dog on for me. And she does. My bankroll is usually $4-$5000 for a weekend. Although I'm going to trim that in 2017...(my New Years resolution). My home base is M Bay, and as far as first season goes they already have VIP seating for all the MLife casinos. As far as other shows go, if I need a couple to 4 seats to a show (an Mlife show) I get them. Any more than that like 6 seats I've needed just once, I make a deal with her using some express comps. For Mayweather Pacquiao fight, I eked out two tix for my son, although they were taken away from me by Corporate couple days before we got down,,but they managed to still get 2 nosebleeds for him. He was only expecting that anyways, based on my play. So..I dunno what I get. Hope this kinda answers your question. Go Canucks Go!!! (we are totally sucking this season)

    I'm thinking a lot of those Sold Out Seasons will be for re-sale, and not personal usage. It will definitely be interesting to see the attendance.

    It will be interesting to see how the casinos comp tickets, I suspect they will have boxes that hold 15-30 guests rather than seats by the glass.

    Even the Blackhawks, which has one of the largest NHL fan bases doesn't sell all seats to season ticket holders, they sell single game tickets to accommodate the fans that can't buy season tickets. I suspect LV will be the same.

    yes it will, alot off the other casinos bought up the tickets and suites its not just a mgm event also i think it was only 10k in tickets so half sold upfront that leaves another 10k.locals wont care ,it we be geared towards visitors.basicaly targeted too who ever there playing.

    basicly nothing has been a big ticket at tmoble ,if u cant get thru the casino u can get in for pennies on the dollar on the secordary market

    even stevie nicks and the pretenders oppeeninging nite for the park venue at the Monte Carlo bombed ,u could get tickets the day before for as low as 35$ just too get in.i could get in really good seats for a 3rd of the price to site up front.
    right before showtime u were able to get in for 18$ to the show on stub hub.
