I thought they both waived the parking fee if you have a high enough status, or if you get their credit card. And I believe the credit cards have no annual fee.

I believe there are additional perks as well.


Correct, I have diamond at Caesars and platinum at MGM and both waive the parking fee.

Why should the average guy be treated as well as a business's best customers? If a typical 7 Star player is worth more to the casino than a busload of blue hairs, why should they be treated equally?
This is in response to DAs response, which for some reason is not quoted here.

Ethics? I know, that’s a four letter word for a cssino operator. Treating all of their profitable customers as if they have value has worked for the Gaughans. In any case there’s not a good reason it can’t be waived with a minimum retail spend or number of points.

If you want value from a business, bring value to the business.
A business that treats its $10 customers like its million-dollar ones will end up with a surplus of $10 clients and few million dollar ones.

That makes perfect sense in a virtual monopoly (like gaming historically was) versus a competitive market. More than one way to skin a cat to be sure. As far as “providing value” goes a tier system disincentives a player who “provides value” but has little history, why there’s not a good reason not to reimburse it for some threshold of daily play given that’s a more accurate measure of “value” than the tier anyway, at least for that day.

If I'm not mistaken, resort fees generate 100% Income for the hotel and cannot be diluted paying other 3rd party travel sites based on the room rates. My question is, are the resort fees taxed the same way as hotel room rates, because these fees generate millions of dollars and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Bureau maynot be getting a piece of this action. Hotel tax is much higher than the ordinary sales tax. Not sure what the going rate is, I think close to 14% plus other fees, after all said and done, a visitor could be paying over 25% combined taxes, plus the resort fees.

Don’t local teens try to use casinos as weekend hang- outs, and don’t spend much. One reason for fees?

I don’t know of a non Native American casino that allows teenagers on the gaming floor. Paid parking pretty rare in native casinos Tampa about it not one I’ve ever heard of.

They would only be allowed to hang out in common areas such as the food court, movie theaters, arcades, etc. At least in Nevada
