    Next Month, I will be going to Las Vegas and staying at the Mirage. I will be there 3 days, 2 nights. I plan to gamble at all of the MGM properties. My question is: Does MGM lump all of my play in and calculate my ADT for all of the MGM properties? Or does my play at Mirage count just for Mirage, and Aria just for Aria, etc?

    For tier credits it's all lumped together, for offers/ADT it's by property. You're much better off concentrating your play at a specific property that you enjoy for future offers. Lower level properties (Excal, Luxor,NYNY, MC) will be more generous with future offers than high level properties (Aria, Bellagio). Middle level properties would be Mirage, MGM,MB. It can take a couple trips to figure out where your play fits in with your resort expectations.

    I actually think for purposes of property-specific offers, as long as you have enough play at a given MGM property to get any offer from them, the offers you get from that property will reflect your entire ADT.

    This came up maybe a couple of years ago and one of the members here said it was something like 10% of your play would trigger a property-specific offer.

    So I think of an example where you are staying at Aria on an offer for 3 nights, and you go down to MGM Grand and play for 1/2 a day. Your MGM ADT by itself is going to be small. But I think you will start getting offers from MGM Grand, and I think they'll be based on your entire ADT for the trip. And if you were getting offers from Aria already, they would continue, and at the same level, as long as your overall ADT for the stay was the same.

    I think the place where spreading your play around across MGM properties would be disadvantageous would be when it came to getting back end comps at your home property.

    This is my understanding of how the system works there. CET is doesn't matter. They will clone all of your offers so you can hop all you want. I have MLife offers for casinos that I never go to. Since they can see my rated play the corporate machine will kick out "like" offers with their internal algorithm. IE My coin in at Excalibur will get me 3 nights comped but when the machine digests that its only good for 1 night comped and a discount at Bellagio (or whatever).

    BUT it is also true that focusing your play at one of their casinos will get you much better property specific offers! So you are looking at 2 banks of offers. The corporate ones that post by season and the property specific ones .

    Here is a good example. I have been playing/staying with Luxor my last few trips. My corporate offers there are for 3 nights + $100 free play. The same as i have for Mandalay Bay next door (that gets maybe 10% of my play) and Excalibur (that gets zero of my play). But my property specific offers at Luxor are $100 in free play + $100 in resort spend and an upgrade to the pyramid suite.

    It is also worth noting that if you use a host to book for you they will only get credit for gambling done in their casino. You will earn points on your card for any casino. but they wont get credit for that. CET hosts get credit for all of your play in town when they book you. You are "active" for them once they stamp your name on their roster of invited guests.
