From the review:
"I charged a total of about $122.
It is par for the course to get back about 1/3 of the expected loss in comps.
my expected loss for 3.8 hours at $150 a hand = $299.25. Covering all $122 in charges amounted to getting 41% back, which is pretty generous."

I guess the operative words from the above snippet would be the pretty generous part. I had previously heard from a variety of sources that South Point was not very generous with comps, though admittedly this was fairly stale information. Its good to hear that things may have changed there.

I tend not to rent cars when I fly to Vegas and I tend to go to more than one casino but things change as I get older and I just may give South Point a try. Oh, I'm not basing this solely on my revised view of their comp policy, but its surely is a factor.

I can't promise that they are generous with everybody, but I left happy. When I used to play video poker there, when it was the South Coast, they were quite generous with the mailers. Overall, I think it was a good place. The big drawback is you have to drive to get anywhere worth going to.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Thanks for the information.


As far as driving anyplace, who cares, love the location, and The M is just down the road!

Yes. I would quite agree. If you are a "local" and already have a car and are familiar with roads, construction delays, shortcuts, etc. then a somewhat remote location for a casino is not much of a problem.

Proximity to the Food, Booze and great atmosphere of The M Resort is an added plus for sure!

I'm glad to be hearing that people are not leaving the SouthPoint as unhappy with their comp policy as I used to hear a good bit of grumbling about it. Things chance or perhaps sources are biased sometimes.
