Hi,

It's been over 10 years since I've been to Las Vegas. I have a 3 night trip coming up, and was wondering which Downtown LV casino would be best fit.

I'm particularly looking for future comp room offers.

I know CET but I'm not a Diamond player therefore would be paying resort fees, see #2 below.

Facts:
1) Gambling budget $500 per trip
2) I HATE resort fees on comped rooms
3) I'm not playing for comps
4) Primary action will be VP

If anyone has suggestions about comp rooms other than Downtown LV chime in. Right now I'm looking for Downtown but nothing set in stone.

Thanks for the guidance.

Four Queens has pretty good VP offerings, and they don't charge any resort fees, comped room or not. I hear it is fairly easy to score future comp offers, but I have no direct knowledge.

My experience with The D was getting comped room offers just for having a pulse, but that was many years ago.

4Queens seems pretty easy to score rooms. At least it was.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

What is the Golden Nugget like these days? I haven't played there since the player friendly Tim & Tom days.

Machines are very tight at GN considering they are a downtown property. Not many comps for low rollers.

For the original poster, 4 Queens, D, Golden Gate are good options and the will send mailers. The Circa may also be good as they are related to The D and Golden Gate.

Circa - from what I was told they want more at table games to get the same comps as at a top Strip resort. Perhaps the same applies to their machines? that you have to play harder just to get the same as you might get on the Strip? When they told me this I was thinking "Tahoe in its heyday" - when you'd have to play to around 400 average bet to be fully comp'ed in Tahoe (at Harvey's for example, when it was a top resort) where at that time less than that could get you fully comp'ed on the Vegas Strip.

We didn't have any problem getting fully comp'ed at Circa but then I was playing to special limits which were off the chart anyway.

Golden Nugget is nice. Circa is even nicer. Aren't the rest on the list basically dumps?

Probably by your standards, the rest of the world is content with staying at a Holiday Inn and doesn't require a 5 star experience.

You are contradicting yourself here.

If you are looking for future room comps, like you said, losing $500 on 25-cent video poker should get you there. El Cortez should get you the most nights, or be able to get it without going through the entire $500. I think Four Queens is the next most friendly with their comps. Both have good VP options.

If you are not playing for comps, like you also said, then you can do what is much cheaper for most people, which is use a credit or debit card number to secure a room, instead of a players club number.
