    Hey guys been trolling for a few months leading up to my recent trip this past week.

    Thought I'd ask about future comps. I racked up 52,313 tier points in my first trip to the MGM. Stayed for 3 nights if that matters. I also earned $121.65 in express comps. I played a mixture of $.25/$1 slots at max bet, and craps/bj.
    Craps was $10 pass line with odds and $12 on 6/8 every time, and when we got hot played higher. Bj was anywhere from $10-$25/ hand. I am not sure of the exact hours of play but I did not go outside for 3 days. If I had to guest I would say slots were probably 4 hr/day and tables were 4 hr/day.

    My question is what can I expect comp wise if any. Also, when if they were to offer something should I receive them in my mlife account?
    I am hoping to start going out 2-3 times a year and would love some feed back.

    Thanks in advance for replies.

    Some decent play that will catch their attention. I do not KNOW, but guessing some room offers. You do have a bit of a problem though. Often, you are classified as a table player, or slot player. Sometimes they do not combine your spend into one number.

    Yeah, I've noticed that too and it really annoys me.

    On a recent trip I played about 10 hrs total (over 3 days) at about $160 per hand and when I went to the players desk they said "We have you at $900 coin-in".


    Had to clarify and she typed in more stuff to look that up. Really hope I'm not getting offers based on some mucking around at the slots.

    I think you will get some room offers based on the slots. My wild guess is free at Luxor, etc and reduced rate at Aria/Bellagio weekends. Some free MGM because it is your "home" casino. I'm more familiar with the table comps, at $10 craps/BJ you won't get much. If you played a bunch at $25 maybe more.

    Would like to hear what you get.

    Remember playing for comps makes no sense. Cheaper to just pay for the hotel room.

    BTW- always curious if bit critters catch the jump from 10 to 25 and bother to record the change.

    The lower numbers usually wins, only because its "I played $10 most of the time, but bumped it up to $25 when I caught a few runs". But if the bet is $10 over 80% of the time, $10 wins.

    But again, a good tipper could push that number to $50 if I was in the mood.

    This is how the game is played in Vegas, folks.

    Always be sure the pit bosses know you are tipping and try to make them like you.

    I am usually a table player but the guy I was with (platinum tier) plays only slots so I spent sometime with him there.

    I asked the Pit boss how you get rated at craps and he said basically anything over $25 which included place numbers and pass line so minimum I had $34 on table plus odds. Blackjack I was playing with another friend and he made 20k+ and I was playing $25 beside him.

    I will let you know if I receive anything.
