    Firstly, a big thank you to all the posters of this forum. I learned a great deal of valuable information leading up to my trip.

    I recently returned from a 6 day trip, 3 of them spent at the MGM Grand where I did most of my gambling. I also played some slots at ARIA as well. I managed to rack up a little over 28,000 tier credits and advance to the pearl level in about two days. I played a ton of the wheel of fortune 3D double diamond machines as well as craps and roulette. Totals for the 2 days were $ 3,384.49 coin-out, $3,352.00 coin-in and an estimated loss of $910 for table games (which seems a little low to me, I'm thinking it was more like $1,500).

    Prior to check out I visited the Mlife desk to get my new card and ask if I was eligible for any comps. They ended up comping 1 night's room rate plus resort fees (including taxes) and a $15.00 freeplay, all of which I graciously accepted.

    So I guess my question for the vets is how'd I do? Does this seem in line with my level of play? Should I have asked for more?

    No, thats about right.. Until recently they would have comp'd both rooms but Mlife has been tightening the belt very recently when it comes to comps. You might want to check your Mlife account online in about a month you will get some more offers for future visits.
    Cheers.

    Wheel of Fortune is a low gainer for the casino. Some do not even take freeplay.

    That's what I was told; free play will not work for progressive machines. But I loved getting those spins on the big wheel. I hit $100 or more multiple times and was pretty close to hitting the major prize which was just over 1K multiple times.

    Time at table and average bet are a better indicator than actual loss for table games. You can and should always get the pit to confirm both of these numbers before you walk away as well.
