    I have plenty of CET locations comped straight down. Once I have more then 6 nights in one trip, they start charging me? Is this the norm or can the phone center over ride that?

    Usually 5 consecutive is the limit but perhaps they've changed it to 6. A host can do anything, but a regular customer service rep probably cant do it without some higher-up's approval.

    Anything over 6 nights has to be handled by somebody higher than a regular CS rep. Ask to be transferred to VIP or the Host on Duty at the property you are booking. You may get the standard reply of "we only comp 5 consecutive nights, anything further will have to be evaluated at the end of your trip based on your play" That being said I would assume if your play is high enough someone will probably handle it up front. Especially one night

    Like @alexm said, if your play is high enough, anything is possible, but up front, I would expect that you couldn't get more than the standard unless you had an exceptional track record.

    My max comped is 4. But if I have a week where there are a few paid nights showing I can book 4 before the paid and 4 after. We just came home from Vegas in Nov. Tues to Tues - booked online. Paid $22 for friday and $22 for Saturday. Grand total with tax was $56

    I've never been able to get more than 5 in a row comped. More than that, if I call I can usually get quoted a casino rate for the additional nights and have gotten them comped back-end, but not upfront. I don't have a host though.

    On my own I have only ever gotten 5 nights in a row. Early Sept this year I got 6 nights and the 7th at $35 for Flamingo I got this with a companion number attached (albeit my companion was Gold and had about $100 tier credits)

    I'm a 7* and my last trip in October 28 - Nov. 4th I had 7 nights comped at Caesars. Actually 8 because we left at 10PM because we had a Midnight flight. I've stayed 6 or 7 nights frequently. I also get an extra room for my friends on some trips. The second room we ave too pay resort fees (which I pay via TR points). Those rules are not strict, it depends on your play and how good your host treats you and vice versa.

    As others said, you can only get 5 nights comped on the front end. Once you cover your comp (i.e. one third of your theo must be more than the comp value of your room for those five nights), then a host can use the rest of your theo to cover any additional expenses, additional nights on your room, food etc.

    If you have enough theo, they will comp as many nights as you like. For a fun story on this regard, google Terrance Wantanabe, he basically stayed in a CET suite continuously for almost a year, fully comped. He also lost $127 million.

    I'm not Wantanabe and I never had any issue with getting the rooms up front, over 5 nights, so I don't know about any front end issue for many years.
    I don't short play, I usually play minimum 4 - usually 5 hours a day of VP at 3-5 play, sometimes 10 play at $1. I don't consider myself a big player, but I think that I play enough to get that 6/7 without a problem.

    I see you using the term “short play”. I assume this means play less than 4 hours in a day. I was wondering about the terms of this—can it be in more than 1 session (e.g. 2 hours in the morning, 2 hours in the evening)?.

    Also, do you have any idea on what the trade off of this with bet size is? That is, let’s say I want to bet more than I usually do but I know I can’t play for 4 hours at that rate. How big a bet would I need to make to make them happy with 2 hours of play a day (as honestly sometimes I’m not up to the 4 hours, and particularly if volatility causes me to overspend my bankroll.

    I would expect a seasoned CET host to be able to have the latitude to comp more than 5 nights upfront, either explicitly or with a wink.

    I don't have a host at CET, but I've had MLife hosts who would comp additional nights upfront over and above my offers.

    While you may not consider yourself a big player, you most certainly are and definitely the type Caesars wants in their properties. Even at a conservative 400 hands per hour (relatively slow) you're likely doing Diamond in a day or close to it every time you play. That means you are generating no less than 1k in theo every day you play. I'm sure they would be more than happy to keep you in a room just about every day of the year as well. Consistency seems to be key with keeping CET happy

    Yes, I'm over the $1K every day and about 750 hands an hour( I timed myself). The whole subject of 5 nights is really one of those "it depends". I have the same host for 8 years and we see each other every trip and she buys me and my guest(s) a lunch at Harrah's Oyster Bar. I have lots of TR points and I haven't taken nor required any back-end comps in years due to 100X TR multiplier I had two years ago in AC and another 100X 5 years ago.
    I think most Executive Hosts have leeway in comps and they know how far they can go. Also, when I mentioned my 5 hours, those are rarely a singe session. I do other things besides sitting down for 5 straight hours, that's an average. I may do 4 hours on a busy day and 6 hours when not much non-gambling things are going on. Additionally, I have a daily loss limit and if I hit it, I'm done for the day. If I hit that before my expected play I'm done.
    The casino has its guidelines and gamblers should too. I think once in about 5 years have I went over my loss limit by about $1K.
    Hopefully, this answers the questions above.

    5 is the most we’ve been able to get at Caesars.
