    Been playing
    At a new casino just opened in New York. I have about 6000 points which equals 30k in slot play. Two weeks prior I lost $5000 in a day on slots. They comped me $100 dinner for next trip, said I can use VIP lounge for dinner and drinks and $20 free slot play for next trip and lounge for
    Now at least unless I stop playing a few trips probably. Last trip before the loss I had $80 free play and thought it would go up after a lot of play in one day. Am I expecting too
    Much or is this free play rediculous how low it is ?

    In my experience, at most regional places the weekly offers that are auto-generated by the system are based on play (theo or points) rather than win/loss. Occasionally those offers are reduced by wins, but it's very rare for them to be increased by losses.

    You may be able to negotiate something better from a human based on your loss.

    Yea it was a lot of ups and down so a lot of play I just thought due to all the points I would
    Maybe have a $100 per trip free play available. But is not big deal id probably lose it anyhow in about 5 minutes the way I play.

    IMHO, it really depends on how "long" it took you to lost the $5K. If you spun 5 times on a $1000 machine, that would be one thing, and if you spun 5000 times on a $4.00 machine, that would be another. In CET terminology, the first example would get you 1000TC, and the second would have gotten you 4000TC. See the difference. IMHO, it's not the win/loss, but the action that contributes to comp level.

    Yeah but $30k in slot play is still $2,500 - $3,000 in theo. I know zip zero nada about comps at regionals, but that's worth $700 - $800 in comp value in Vegas.

    There are also some pretty big places that have crazy low "coupon caps". Like $50-$100/week.

    Actually, I was referring to the "Two weeks prior I lost $5000 in a day on slots.". I had a friend that won $3000 in 15 minutes but was refused a meal comp. Of course, he should have (and could have) bought his own meal. I'm just saying . . . .

    Your example math does work, but you are assuming the 5 spins got zero wins, and the $4 machine had lots of small wins along the way allowing him to play longer. Math is right, but...

    Maybe a better example is the total coin in. The OP said he got 6000 points, so he either was able to replay his money a few times over.
