    This past week was my first week visiting Vegas with a host. Got a host after a $7500 loss while staying at Wynn in May. I was comped a 1br Sky Suite at Aria and have received my Theo for the trip. I am also a Platinum member now (arrived as gold with no idea at my amount of TC) after 2 trips at about 300,000TC. I am a table games player mostly. I was wondering, what kind of Theo should I aim for to still get this comp and what is considered a high theo for a 3 day weekend trip?

    My Theo is 4800

    Not really sure what you are asking as a "high" theo is irrelevant. Comps aren't handed out based on whether your theo is high or low. Comps are given as a percentage of your theo. So if your goal is to maintain a level of play that generates a comped skysuite for three nights, I would estimate that your most recent theo is probably about right. For a basic weekend (not a holiday or big event), you need to generate about $1500 day in theo (on average) to get a basic skysuite comped

    If you have 300,000 TC with 2 visits, you are going to get suites without much trouble.

    If you changed your $7,500 loss to $6,500 you would have $1,000 to pay for the suites - LOL!

    $4800 theo means in the long run, you lose $4800 per trip. That’s more than my trip bankroll.
    I am a super low roller.
    I don’t know how high your theo is in the casino’s eyes, but definitely much higher than mine.

    to some people a high theo is $1,000 for 3 days and to other people its $100,000.. usually its been said its 30-40% of your theo you get back in comps but some people will get much less because they might not know what they can ask to get comped.

    Stupid question but does this mean the OP’s actual loss ($7500) was higher than his theoretical loss ($4800)? Stating the obvious, but that’s not good!

    Those were two different trips actually. He said he lost $7500 in May at Wynn. His theo for this trip at Aria is $4800, but he never claimed his actual result for this trip.

    And an actual loss less than double the theoretical loss is fairly common anyway. We can't all run above average unfortunately.

    I'm also surprised at the amount of TC he gained this trip. For a $4800 theo, I would expect a slot player (in comparison) to gain only about 160,000 TC excluding resort spend.
