    i'll be heading to Vegas with my son in law in a couple of months. We have two nights reserved ( no comps) ar Golden Nugget and three nights(two comped) at Flamingo.

    We are both Platinum with CET. The trip will be to gamble ( craps, roulette, maybe some
    poker - a little slots). We will of course eat and have a day at a cabana.

    Here's my question: will they combine our play when determining the. back end comps? While I might only drop $5000 over five days, so will he.

    IMHO, no. Not unless you are playing on the same card, which you two don't qualify for.

    Are you sure, DaiLun? I would hope that they would consider both players when looking at back end comps.

    Maybe when playing slots and VP, use the card of the person the room is booked under.

    When playing tables, the "other" person could ask for a pit comp?

    I don't know, I'm just spitballing ideas here.

    While this doesn't help with GN or Flamingo, when my Mom and I stayed at Gold Coast they did combine our play when we asked them about back end comps.

    Good luck jhpa, I hope your trip is super! Just win big and you can "comp yourself!"

    It depends on what the casino's policies are. I can tell you with reasonable certainty that CET doesn't and mLife probably doesn't.

    Dealt with hosts at both CET and MLIFE and they do certainly look at combined play for back-end COMPS. Several trips I always go with a buddy that doesn't gamble enough to get COMP'd rooms, only discounted, and he always charges food back to his room (both CET and MLIFE). I always ask my host or on-duty host to cover his room/FB charges under my account since I know I can cover it. Just ensure you check out with your host, if you have one, or the on-duty host night before and let the host know that you wish for them to look at your combined play and see if it warrants back-end comps. I've never stayed and play at GN, so I can't speak about them.

    CET also used my dads play and comps when we were sharing a suite together. I still have the texts from my host giving me updates on his play when I requested them. They definitely used both of ours when wiping everything off.

    Then I stand corrected. I guess it's because I don't room with "gamblers" that I don't try to take advantage of this.
