    Hello, just wondering what casino provides the best comps for Craps players. Either in terms of hotel room offers or free play offers.

    This one will entirely depend on your average bet, and having knowledge of how the casino counts theo (especially if you play odds at all). For downtown, I can only report on Four Queens, and from dice action just last night.

    First off, generously toke (tip). For just under 30 minutes of actual time on the table, I got a $100 rating for one hour theoretically on the table. For that, I got exactly $9 in earned comps. From here, we reverse engineer.

    Months ago, I posited that self comp dollars at Four Queens are earned on table games at a rate of 10 percent of theo. My $9 means $90 of theoretical loss. (Sadly, actual loss was about quadruple that.) The typical rate of play used for factoring comps and the like is 90 rolls per hour. With my $100 rating, that means $9000 of theoretically resolvable action on the layout. $90 is 1% of that. Thus, it appears that Four Queens counts theo for dice as one percent.

    Doing a classic comparison to slots, my $90 of theo would be like $900 of slot coin-in -- worth 180 points and $9 in comp dollars. It would take at least 500 points from slots to get a comped room at Four Queens, per the hosts. Time on table/device seems to be a big deal, and you will likely want to hit an aggregate of four hours per gaming day. I estimate that going $64 across with a pass line bet of $10 gets you comped rooms.

    Do with all of this as you need. Mostly just passing along what I have seen.

    i found that Golden Nugget is pretty loose on free play and comp rooms. I give them $200 AHT for about 4 hours when I stay there per day and I get rooms pretty much whenever I want and sometimes I get $75 in free table free play.

    as with anywhere it depends on how the pit rates you. I have found Golden Gate and The D to comp well on craps and although I do have some VP play I have always had comp 4 nights a month, 50 promo chips at GG 50 matchplay at the D, and 50-100 fb credit monthly.
    usually start 5 or 10 passline 5 on hard six and eight and continuous come bets. If the table is going strong I am on all the numbers and usually quarters and up on the hardways.

    GG is also the only casino where not once but twice either a host or pit boss came out to shake my hand and thank me for my play. I also toke pretty well if I am winning

    The D and GG are very generous with free rooms, food credits, and match/free play imo. I don't like playing craps at the D (too much riffraff and hangers-on, negative vibe from some staff, and a bit too loud at night) but really love GG craps. Give both a try and form your own opinions however.

    Comps can also include requests from the pit after finishing up a playing session. At this exact moment, I am at Main Street Station, and finished up at the dice table down a decent chunk (inside numbers just weren't hitting enough; the field was quite decent). I asked the pit if I could get a food comp to something still open at this hour. A few beeps and boops later, I had $15 at 777 based on a $40 rating upon coloring up. I can confirm that the comp worked. It was called a "halo comp"on the receipt.

    I have this board to thank for knowing to ask.

    I think many of the downtown casinos will give you comps if your average bet is high enough.

    But you're looking at green chips and higher to get comps.

    For instance, you need to have $25 on the table at all times for 2 - 3 hours to get a comped meal. I would assume you need to bet 3x or more that to get comped night offers.
