If you're staying on a room offer, how important to play at that casino?

    I've got a room comp booked at NYNY next month. How important is it to have play there vs Mlife casinos in general? I'll play there sure, but I'll probably play more at Excalibur since they have lower limits on the games I play.

    thx!

    Shouldn't affect your overall corporate offers from Mlife, but you will only get back-end comps from play at NYNY. If your play is low anyways, it won't matter much for the back end comps as you would need to play enough to cover the comp anyways before they will consider back end.

    I play at where I feel lucky; stay at where I feel comfortable; never worry about anything else.
    Comps will come, usually more than I care about.

    I typically gamble at a different mlife property than i stay. Plenty of comps, front and back end.

    If you put in signifigant play at a different Mlife property you will need to speak to a host at that property if you want food etc. Mlife properties each operate as individual profit centers despite being the same company. Your host at NYNY can't comp your play at the other properties.

    If corporate offer I do whatever I want. If my host is involved directly with the reservation and other needs I am more “obligated” to play at the host hotel.

    If you don't have host, if you only go to Vegas once or twice a year, if you only gamble a couple hundred bucks a day it's no going to matter what you do, especially when MGM doesn't rate tables very well. Plus being you're looking for the lowest table minimums, you're not going to get rated anyway.

    With Mlife, if you are staying on a room comp offer and expect back end comps, you need to play where you stay.

    Say you are staying at NYNY and play/spend 25% there and 75% at Excalibur, your back end comps, if any, at NYNY will be based on your 25% play at NYNY. Your 75% play at Excal is not factored into back end comps at NYNY
    (Mlife and CET are different in this aspect).

    If you don’t care about back end comps, or don’t play enough to get back end comps, then it doesn’t matter which property you play at.

    Your overall play/spend at all mlife properties is used to determine corporate offers so no impact there.
