So I am at Caesars AC for a little Pai Gow Tiles with friends, celebrating a win at Revel. We end up playing a little over 2 hours; I had an average bet of $250 and no one was banking. Now, at Borgata or Revel, I would've been comped somewhere between $70 and $90 (assuming 30 hands per hour, and 1.70% house edge). However, Caesars AC decided a kickback of $8 was more than generous.

Okay, no problem. We all know a host can issue discretionary comps, right? CET comps tend to be on the stingy side.

Kwi Restaurant comp for 3 please.

"Sorry Mr. Chauncey, at this time I need to see more play. Use the comp dollars on your card."

You can't offer me more than the $8 on my card? I just played 2 hours and was rated at a $250 average and lost $X.

Typing... typing... mouse clicking... "Ok, tell you what, I'll bump it up to..."







THANKS! My ancestors and I are forever indebted to you.

Go Fvck Yourself CET.

Let me pass along my list of your 10 weakest dealers to three very hungry regional AP teams. They will proceed to hole card the sh*t out of your carnival games.

Let me also teach every single vagabond in AC how to slot hustle and silver mine on your 4 properties, and where to use your facilities for shelter and food.

Please also sell the WSOP brand to someone who knows how to treat the players right.

I think your Diamond might actually be Cubic Zirconia. I've had casinos give me better food comps just for breathing.

I get better food comps from CET just for breathing! I get some in the mail two to three times a week. Considering how long I've been a platinum card member, I would have thought I'd be getting better offers but lately they are all about quantity, not quality. $5 slot coupons that are redeemable from Monday to Thursday are not going to get me there.

I have recently been looking for another casino company to take my money, that has a presence in both AC and LV. I'm going to try out the Borgata on the weekend of the 20th. If I feel that they're treating me right, I'll expand my play there to exclusivity. They tie in with Boyd gaming and although I'm certain that I can get free stuff from The Gold Coast for going through the effort of calling them on the phone, it would be nice to be able to do it online with my play that I earned at The Borgata without having to ask.

Would my play at The Borgata get me any comps from any of the Coast casinos in Las Vegas or are they treated like completely separate entities?

I couldn't agree more. Had the same experience times three from CET. During my last trip at the rio I ended up at the gold coast for the last three days. I was very nice about the bed bugs at casino windsor, didn't kick up a fuss and they did nothing. They still do not rate people properly. I'm going with smaller places and independent for now on.

CET is awful with table game comps as the Wizard and many others have pointed out many times, giving out something to the effect of 0.2% of total amount bet which is formulated on slot players. (You get a point for $5 bet, 100 points = $1)

So yeah, $250 x 2 hours x 30 hands / hour = $15,000. Your comp may have been at best $30, but they've factored in the low HE as well to make it about .08% of total amount bet or about, yeah, you guessed it, $12. Your theoretical loss is about $400 and 30% of that is $120 of what you thought you should have gotten.

CET's comps work through mailers enticing you to come back with free hotel rooms, a bit of free slot play, and prizes and draws from time to time. The in-game comps are very stingy, and for slot players, most comps are earned by taking advantages of multipliers. For table players, the only thing you get is the freeBets from time to time.

As a result, regulars who play at CET with anything at Platinum or above usually stay for free in their properties which is a major comp. For example, as a Platinum last year, I was able to stay at CZR in Vegas last December over a three night weekend for free.

Conversely, at MGM or normal comping places, your play does not give the room, it would give you $120 off the room.

According to the Borgata website, you can use comps from the Borgata in Las Vegas at Main Street Station, The Orleans, Sam's Town,
and Suncoast. You need at least $50 in comps, and you have to ask for a certificate at Borgata good for 9 months. You must stay at one of the hotels mentioned above and the certificate will be applied to your room folio for room, food, spa, and house shows, not headliners.

I used to be a Total Rewards Diamond member, but decided it just wasnt worth the effort for me. Now I exclusively play at Borgata when in AC, and they are very generous with the comps and free room offers.

He says more play, so do you have to play a week straight to get what you wanted for one dinner? The language is just about fraudulent used based on the fact more play couldn't possibly be enough. It implies more time, but it seems much more time and even higher bets wouldn't do it.
