    Does anyone know how many Red card points per day it takes to "cover" a front end comp for a standard room at the Wynn?

    I have a friend who is accepting a "teaser" offer from the Wynn, but is a low roller who probably won't provide the play necessary for her to get addl. comps.

    She's getting 3 nights and $750 free play.

    I suggested (based on my CET experience at Caesars), that it would be AT LEAST $5000 coin in a day on slots, which would mean $10,000 coin in on VP.

    I told her to play what she plays, and don't worry about any future comps.

    Am I way off on this?

    I think you gave her a very good answer. Play what you play. Never, ever worry about meeting the upfront comp. Assume you are not gonna get anything extra in the back end.

    Since she got $750 free play for 3 nights, she needs to play a lot more to cover that before getting any back end comps.
    Anything below $15K/day coin-in, Wynn will be unhappy.

    I am comped in Encore Tower Suites rooms and I believe my email confirmations sometimes refer to 7000 POINTS or more per day to get something on the back end. That's more than $7000 coin in or maybe it's $7000 coin in on slots and much more on VP. For a standard room it presumably is in the 5000 points range. I remember reading somewhere 5 to 7k in points per day, on average, over the course of a trip.

    Pretty nice teaser offer for a low roller at a high end prop. Any idea what her play was to trigger this offer?

    Hard to say, she's pretty evasive when I ask a direct question. Don't know if she doesn't keep track or doesn't want to admit that she's more than a "casual" gambler.

    I haven't stayed there in several years and still get 3 night/$300 offers.

    I have plenty of "casual" gamblers that somehow get free rooms, lots of FP, etc. Just understand she does not want to get into that detail. I and others may have said it, but she should assume she is not going to get any additional comps at the end of this trip unless she plays really big. Just accept what she got and hope for another good offer.

    So I talked to her today and got more details. She is very naive about comps. She said, "I just played Video Poker, but there was one machine at the end, it was a dollar machine, and I was playing 3 hands at $5 a hand. I must've played it for 30 minutes.". I suggested that she keep better notes about her play and the number of points she is accumulating.

    Based on my knowledge of Wynncore, she had some serious coin in. I guarantee you. Lol. My standard offer is less free play than what your friend got and I give Wynncore heavy play (very heavy on time as opposed wager amount) though my host, bless him, often gets it increased.

    Naive or avoiding your questions. Personally, I would leave it alone.
