I'm going to Vegas in December and staying at Palazzo. If I play 4 hours at about $200/hand at say Bellagio or Wynn would I be able to get comped dinner for 2 even though I'm not staying there? If so, how would I go about requesting this? If these casinos are too upscale to reward my piddly action, is there another nearby (TI, Mirage, Harrah's) that would hook me up?
The ratio of people to cake is too big.

At $200/hand, you should get dinner at any restaurant you like. Most casinos will give you full RFB at that level, in this economy. After an hour or two of play at $200 a hand, a host will find you and ask if they can do anything for you.

Make sure to give them your players card before you start playing. If you don't have one, then get one. Also, tell the dealer that you plan on playing $200 hands, even before you put your money down. Buy in all at once for your entire bank roll when you tell them this, even if it is more than you plan on betting. If you lost money when you are done, make sure they note this (no need to make a mention of if/how much you win if you do win). As soon as you are done playing, talk to a pit boss and tell them that you just played x hours at y per hand and would like to check on your comps. They will probably ask you what you want to get, go big with your request, "I want RFB for the weekend and to dine somewhere nice". This way they will be more likely to tell you your maximum benefits and the absolute most you can get. If you just ask for something small, they will just give you the small thing you ask for without telling you what else you can get.

If you don't have a players card, don't waste time on line at the players club counter. You can hand your ID to the pit boss, and he will get the card for you - espectially if you're throwing down $200 a hand!
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁
