Not sure about CET, but we can give out discretionary Slot Free Play and/or TG Promo Chips.



Nice! I would guess I was just a medium fish and didn't rate those. I was always surprised how much they offered. I've always felt over comped as it is, but it's a good feeling.

When I asked my host to make reservations at the steakhouse for 2 she threw in a $300 food comp without me asking. I thought that was nice.

I was informed that my account showed I was at 550% comp (by the new host) meaning that I had been comped 5.5 times more than I should have lol. I guess Andrew was very good to me.



Wow nice!

Several properties I have worked for calculate a 3 month average, not including the last month and base all offers on that.

Example: January offer is based on Sep-Oct-Nov. They cannot base it on December, or they would not be able to notify you in time for the first day of the month. That cushion month is used for lead time for marketing etc.




Very common method by my education from the player's side. I can think of some exceptions, mainly casinos that are "difficult" to get to.
Don't believe anything until it is officially denied.

My Caesars host back when I was Diamond did the same. I used to get comped way more than my offers stated that I should. He used to take care of everything when I checked out. We became friends and I found out when he quit Caesars that other hosts weren't as nice lol. I was informed that my account showed I was at 550% comp (by the new host) meaning that I had been comped 5.5 times more than I should have lol. I guess Andrew was very good to me.

To easy.

Acknowledging your much better knowledge, I will add that my 2 main hosts at 2 different companies were always able to override and augment my RFB and comps, and encouraged me to call them before coming. Like, Harrahs computer limited me to 5 nights once, but I was there for 8. The reservation agents were not empowered to change it. All I had to do was call my host and he overrode it in advance. They would also offer unadvertised tickets they happened to have on hand, add folio comps, and other things.

However, I never had one directly offer extra freeplay or cage cash so either I didn't rate discretionary money or they didn't have that capability.


Forgive my ignorance, what are "folio comps?" Never heard that term before.

I believe folio comps are usually items that are charged to your room and comped off at the end of your trip.

Folio comps, they post a dollar amount credit to the room in advance of your stay. They're generally good for anything in the hotel except tips - the gift shop, any bar, any restaurant, room service, shows on-site, etc.. You just sign the receipt to the room. They don't cost you points you've earned from play. And they don't carry over after you check out. Use or lose them.

They work especially well for people staying with you who don't gamble, because they can independently do things without money, and you can say, ok, you can go shopping, or drink poolside, but keep it under $400 or whatever, and go play while they amuse themselves. You just have to name them to the room, and they show a room card and maybe ID, and they can sign for stuff.

When you check out, they use the folio credits first, then take credits from your player's account, then evaluate your play during that stay to decide if they're going to comp the rest of that visit. Only then, will you have to pay any remaining balance.

Tuesday January 8th, 2019 was slot point multiplier day. As a Platinum card holder I could get from 5x to 19x multiplier on slot points earned that day. I got there a little before 6am converted several hundred dollar bills to TITO tickets so when 6am hit I would not waste time putting money into the machine. I went to the Kiosk to play the game at 6am. It was a pyramid type game where you have to choose a box on the bottom level that says move to next level where you could get a higher multiplier. Of course I busted out on the first choice and got a 5X multiplier. Oh well. Off to the play.

I played from 6am to about 7pm. Not the longest time I have spent playing video poker. I did plan ahead and got plenty of sleep the night before. Ironically, the only time I felt tired was when I was playing one machine when someone else wanted to play the other. That was about 3-4 hours out of the thirteen I was there.

My host came buy around 6:45pm and was surprised to see me. She said "I'm surprised to see you here. I thought you don't play in the evening." The woman playing next to me chimes in "He's been here since 6am." I asked my host to make reservations for me and a friend at the Borgata in a couple weeks. I got confirmation the next day of a comped suite on a Saturday and Sunday night with some food credit. Probably not a big feat in January as it is off season. But, comped is comped.

I did $195,972 coin in. That brought my average daily coin in to $557,781/5=$111,556

And here are the 11 jackpots I got.
