who has been doing Vegas all wrong! Didn't want to use a players card -didn't want to be tracked,etc. After reading your board, I've learned I've left a lot of money with the casino in the form of comps and freebies. My next trip is in 4 weeks and this time, I will get and use players cards. I have no idea how to get a host, or if I even need one. I play slots and VP, usually try to keep it to $300/ day. I love to play the horses, and a good sports book is important to me (LOVE the Wynn Sports book.)Great to the horseplayers and easy drink comps. Thanks for all the info you are all so willing to share!
