for example if I play the 9/6 Job perfectly the theoretical loss is small, if I play making mistakes because im human, I think that the real HE is closer to 99.3%

how do casinos track theoretical loss on VP games in terms of comps offered?

There's a lot of ways...

The old way if it was part of a multi-game machine was to average the HE's of all the games offered on the machine. Few places do this still because as you can tell if you can actually play 9/6 JoB well and they're going to give the machine a theo of like 4% (maybe Keno is on it too) then an edge could certainly be had.

In the places with the newest and best the machines can actually calculate theo per game, and in the best case scenario (rare) it could be an updating dynamic theo that updates based off how the players are actually playing on the machine.

The average most places set a theo to the machine. For example, a place near me has 99% deuces but the machine has a set theo of 2.7%.

Playing it correctly means you've already won.

is there a way to find out other than straight up asking what your theo is after you have had a big play session?

I am not aware of any casino tracking system that can evaluate a players theo based on their skill level at a particular game. If there is one, it wouldn't be applicable to 99% or more of the common poker machines because they do not offer a protocol that can communicate it back to the system.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

Recently I was surprised at a card reader's ability to award a point multiplier on keno but not on other games on the same machine.
100% risk of ruin
