    Hey all,
    I get a few offers with MLIFE (3 nights + RC) for most of the hotels (2 nights with Bell & Aria)......
    Cosmo matched a deal last year, but unsure if they would match again this year (Kevin S offer, think his shoutout was based on pulling in New customers, not so much return)...
    Would happily stay at the Cosmo again mind! (if they match offers!)

    But would CET match an Mlife offer, any got any experience with this ? Really fancy the Rio, and like with any of the offers, were we stay, we play... etc
     
    Hope this trips goes ahead!

    Can't help with CET but I can confirm that the cosmo Kevin offers were for new customers only. I had stayed previously at Cosmo so was told no. Did you not start getting offers from Cosmo after you stayed/played?

    Cheers for the replies :)
    Shame about the cosmo, but figured it would be for new customers only...... and no, despite some major spend in there hotel over the 3 nights, no comp offers, just reduced rates.... no worries for that :)

    The CET Props (namely RIO), not too interested in "R credit", more into the comp'd rooms.... I suppose I got nothing to lose by reaching out to a Tables Host in Rio to see if they will match my Mlife offers for a 3 night stay ? Got 9 nights in Vegas this year, so happy to do 2 or 3 hotels! :)

    Hi Stuart, hey I know you're in the UK, which means no mail offers. On Cosmo, I HAVE noticed most of my good offers come via snail mail, and not all of these come via email as well. It MIGHT be worth a call (or reaching out to your host) to see if you have any offers, since you said you played a good amount. I personally have received GOOD snail mail offers that were never emailed, and since mail is a factor for your location, it might be worth checking. Even if it's 95% no...that 5% might turn out right for you!

    Also, On Rio, if you're getting offers at Bellagio and Aria, I'd think you should definitely get something at Rio, the problem is breaking in.

    First, you said your interest was mainly just in room offers, and you don't need RC, If this is the case, CHECK the Total Rewards website. I think my TOTAL coin in last year was like $600, and I am showing freee rooms. Rio is one of the easier ones to get rooms, check the website, as the free rooms aren't necessarily emailed. I have NEVER stayed at CET, spent bascially nothing, and am getting free rooms, check their calendar.

    2) if you want free rooms AND RC, which is tough at CET:
    I spoke to a 3rd part site 2 years ago, URcomped, and was super impressed (and actually guided them to VMB). Basically, they're like a recruiter for casinos...no cost to you, but set minimum play expectations. Rio is on their list I believe. I was really, really impressed with the crew, I just already had my rooms covered on my own, so didnt need to use them. (When I venture into dowtown, I DO plan to try them.)

    You might try them. Yes, you have play expectations, but they will tell you what is expected to maintain the comp. And, they have been doing well enough, the can ever offer some upfront vs. conditional comps now! (And again, Rio is easier to get comped than Bellagio and Aria.) CET is tough to get RC from what I hear, you might have a shot at getting room AND RC with UR comped....

    Cheers for the reply Multi :)
    Yeah, RC and FP not a big thing for me, We don't mind spending our money in the hotel we stay in, when were being looked after!

    I'm gonna try the reach out to a host at the RIO, and Luxor (rather than go through my Mlife offers), and see if I can pull some tricks with them !
    I'm not a high roller on the tables (BlackJack, 3card), but I do play a Lot!
    Looking at my 'tax info' for Mlife, It's puzzling, as it makes me look like I don't spend much on the tables, but the fact I hit Vegas with 6 months savings (about $6k), and go home with only a few dollars, allowing for nice wins (and losses), the stat's don't seem to record it all....
    In MC last year, I hit the floor with over $2.5k as I won big on the IronMan slots in the Cosmo the night before, went to bed with a few cents, and that was just 1 night! seems not all the info was recorded last year :(

    ALL casinos provide offers with an expectation of getting it back and then some. If they give out $600 worth of stuff for example and get back $600 in gambling losses - it make little sense. If the loss figure is only a few hundred - they have now learned their lesson and will not repeat it. (dollars used is just as an example)

    Cosmo decided to "buy" some new customers based on their play/offers elsewhere. It was a gamble on their part. Once you have stayed at Cosmo, you have now created a profile of what they will use as the normal loss/plat/theo/adt. They are NOT going to continue to match offers from other casinos. They will make an offer based on your numbers at Cosmo.

    It is a business - plain and simple.

    HI Stuart, love that you have a few possible game plans! Tables are so out of my territory, buy I know they can be much dicier on rankings. You might read up on a few table rankings' posts. Seems like you have to keep on top of the pit boss/watch your number's or its easy for them to be recorded low. :(

    Good luck! I know you'll make it a great trip, and have a blast!

    This is especially true at Cosmo. I have had $1K+ losses not recorded at Cosmo. I have learned to always keep track and check my rating when leaving.
