    For about a year he claimed he absolutely was not an advantage player and had no edge.

    Then for about a year he claimed he was an advantage player with a hidden edge he couldn't discuss unless someone wanted to watch him for $50,000 if memory serves.

    Then he described an advantage that involves guessing the flow of the cards, said description not considered an advantage by any literature written on WOO and probably derided as useless systems on your other site.

    Currently he claims to have "perpetual comps" (his words) while never showing any losses to Casinos in essence claiming casinos will comp forever even when a player consistently wins at negative -ev games. No suspicion, no questions (in fact his hosts compliment him on the fact he always wins).

    He also says he doesn't get offered any Freeplay and he described one trip where the casino said he rated for full RFB but not for freeplay!

    It's true, I wouldn't.

    Using my methods I can achieve obtaining Freeplay for around 20%.

    Paying 50% is paying more for something I can get for less.

    Also if I remember that conversation came out of the Pennsylvania Sands bus rebate where people sold $45 Freeplay for $40. Now that's people buying Freeplay just for a $5 advantage lol.

    (And I felt it was the correct amount there too)

    What's a lifetime of freeplay?

    If you mean for the rest of my life I get $10 a week and can get this $520 per year value for $210 a year upfront but I have to play each $10 as I get it, then no, it's not worth it.

    And how do I predict how many years up front I have to pay for? What if I live another thirty years?

    He has alluded to soooooo many different things that it’s hard to keep track, you observed him and seem to say he had some edge, you know what it is and I’m guessing it’s not something he could have explain to Marcus Clark over the phone . So this doesn’t sound all
    That kosher to me: I also remeber him saying multiple times he doesn’t even get freeplay are so many diff things he said that make me sit and ponder . So much about mdawg and his claims make me sit and question. How you can allow someone to post on here for so long about things that are more and more against the odds the longer they go.

    So you are claiming the high-end locations on the strip will give you $2,500 in comps after losing 25k on a few hands of baccarat on the regular? Even though the casino take is only $275. Interesting indeed.

  • link to original post


    Why is the casino take only $275. on a $25K blowout loss? Is it not $25K?


    Quote: AxelWolf



    "The way it is"? So you're telling me that if I hit up 10 different casinos on the strip betting 1 hand of baccarat(or any table game) for 25k, if I won half my bets, and lost half my bets... I would have $12,500 minimum in Comps? And does this include craps while taking odds if you lose?

  • link to original post


    Why would you think that the theoretical loss X 35 - 40% would equal $12,500 for that situation? Is that your calculation for the number of hours played X average bet X house edge?


    The CURRENT comp rate for actual loss on the Vegas Strip at any high end resort – I play at a variety of them I cannot speak for the dumps – is 10%. End of story.

    The CURRENT comp rate for theoretical loss on the Vegas Strip at any high end resort – I play at a variety of them I cannot speak for the dumps – is 35 to 40%. End of story.

    Both of these may be adjusted slightly so as to not leave a regular player holding the bag for RFB or spa expenses at the end of a trip.

    It is a stone cold fact that other members of this forum have claimed to have paid 6% withdrawal fees to withdraw thousands of dollars to play baccarat in a manner encouraged by MDawg over phone conversation.

    If MDawg is playing -EV and tells others to withdraw thousands at exorbitant fees to play like him then he deserves derision

    If MDawg is playing +EV and tells others to withdraw thousands at exorbitant fees to play -EV then it's frankly much worse.

    Those are some serious accusations. Please provide the quotes to back up what you claim. You seem to be claiming that I "tell others" to withdraw thousands at exorbitant fees. I actually recall writing more than once about advising people never to gamble with money they cannot afford to lose, and also recall stating specifically that once a person is standing in line at the cashier waiting for a cash advance against a credit card, that s/he is in real trouble.



    There is another member here whose posts are blocked to me I logged out and glanced at a few of his posts. Indecipherable: I don't know if it's speak to text problems, or just plain poor grammar but I believe there are statements from that one too that he should back up with direct quotes.

    There are enough people who read and back up what I said that I don't need to peruse hundreds of pages of your threads looking for your statements.

    Here is just one from this current thread where you basically say you receive comps with incurring no losses.

    Let's revisit comp formulas.

    From what I've learned comps for machine players are usually one-tenth of one percent of coin in. This means players on typical full pay VP games such as 8/5 Bonus and 9/6 Jacks need more than comps to be +EV. And yes there are such things that can bring these players to +EV.

    But table players... it's not that easy.

    We know about the problems rating table players. Do floormen accurately track their play? Do their bets vary? What happens during a shift change? There are so many problems rating table play with comps.

    Mdawg mentioned $2500 comps on $25000. Sure its possible if you played long enough. It's also possible if you're a good customer and your return trip is expected.

    I've been comped "in advance" because the host simply expected my future action.

    The bottom line is anything is possible.

    But in the case I wrote about a player didnt meet the requirement of four hours of play per day. Not getting comps after losing $25k is also possible.

    That is too simplistic Alan to state that anything may happen. There are in fact certain formulas for comps, and I stated them. And yes, I stated that there are deviations from these formulas at times. Pit crews do their best to track play accurately, and at places like Resorts World Vegas, tracking is now done automatically electronically for at least Baccarat and Blackjack. I have cashed out large sums including lately, for wins and believe me if the pit did not verify the wins those 5K chips would not be getting cashed.

    You don't know if that person did or did not get comp'ed in the end for his $25K blowout loss, all you know is that there was an issue over it.

    You have misquoted me then, you stated that I have stated that I am never showing any losses. That is not the same thing as my stating that my over all net is positive. I have posted about losing sessions. Indeed you yourself even once referred to how I lost a large sum at a casino and that that casino didn't give a rat's *** (to use your exact language as best I may recall) about that I won at another casino, as far as giving a loss rebate or other comps.

    Additionally, I do not recall ever stating affirmatively that I do not play with an advantage. So, where is your proof and AxelWolf's that I stated this? because the way you state the above it makes me appear as though I flipflop between different contentions. Just because I do not say or did not say for a period of time that I play with an advantage does not mean that I specifically stated that I do not play with an advantage. For about a year he claimed he absolutely was not an advantage player and had no edge. I believe you are again putting words in my mouth.

    Also, where is your proof that He also says he doesn't get offered any Freeplay. I have posted about getting promotional chips many times. Indeed, I have directly pointed out before that you are completely in the wrong to claim that I said this, and yet here you are repeating it again. There was one time that I posted about getting promotional chips in the past and then stated that I did not recall getting any recently, and then came back later and referred to a post from the not so distant past that did in fact refer to the promotional chips. However to say that I say that I do not get offered any Freeplay, is a mischaracterization of what I have said.

    Over all, I believe that what you are doing here is misquoting or mischaracterizing what I have said directly, in order to make me look inconsistent. If I am wrong in saying that, please provide the direct quotes of mine to support what you are saying about me.

    From second page of this thread you state the only way to sustain the long term comps this whole thread is about is to have extended play WITHOUT LOSING AT ALL (I capitalized the place you say it in the quote below).

    You then double down in the very next paragraph by saying not only are you not losing at all but winning.


    Quote: MDawg


      I created this thread about how comps work - in fact casinos give only 10% of an actual loss, but 35-40% of a theoretical loss, for comps.  If I were losing, I'd have to be dumping somewhere in the neighborhood of $2.5M to have had them comp these six months in Vegas - obviously I'm not losing like that. The only realistic way to sustain a long term casino stay is via extended play WITHOUT LOSING AT ALL or without losing much.

    ACTUALLY, I AM WINNING, but in any case, almost all of our comps are based on theoretical loss.  Realistically, there is pretty much no way anyone could stay in Vegas an extended period unless he kept playing and avoided blow outs.  Blow outs lead to minimal comps.  Extended play leads to real comps. Which is why I view this as a perpetual comp machine 😆 since it requires no cash input, just cash availability, to keep going.

    Again, I never said that I do not lose - I post losing sessions. I have posted losing session(s) in the six figure range either here or at another forum (might have been during my WOV suspension, so, might have been posted elsewhere). I even said that "almost all" of my comps are based on theo loss - so, what other kind of comps are there? Answer: Based on actual loss.

    And again, you yourself even referred to a time when I lost big (mid five figures) at one casino and then paid it off with winnings from another, so you know very well that I lose sometimes.

    The net over all ahead is not the same as saying I never lose. No cash input = no net cash input. You of all people should understand the concept of "net ahead" - in that you say that you lose at slots but make it up in "comps" (freeplay).

    As well, when I said "The only realistic way to sustain a long term casino stay is via extended play WITHOUT LOSING AT ALL or without losing much." that was a general statement which happens to be true.

    I believe your intent in posting whatever you posted was to make me look inconsistent. Where is the backup?

    Again, I never said that I do not lose - I post losing sessions. I have posted losing session(s) in the six figure range either here or at another forum (might have been during my WOV suspension, so, might have been posted elsewhere).

    The net over all ahead is not the same as saying I never lose. You of all people should understand the concept of "net ahead" - in that you say that you lose at slots but make it up in "comps" (freeplay).

    I believe your intent in posting whatever you posted was to make me look inconsistent. Where is the backup?

    Obviously when someone says they never lose the literal interpretation is understood not to mean individual spins, hands or sessions.

    Does anyone really believe if someone claims to never lose that 100 out of 100 spins at roulette are being won? Obviously everyone would interpret the "I never lose" comment as being overall losses vs wins.

    It is now you who are trying to twist meanings. You have made claims before that you are not a loser and that overall play you are consistently a winner.

    No, you never claimed to win EVERY SINGLE HAND OF BACCARAT PLAYED NOR EVERY SESSION. But you have claimed to never be a loser on an extended trip.

    As well, you have not provided the backup for where I said for about a year, affirmatively, that I do not play with any advantage.

    Nor have you provided the backup for that I have stated that I never get any promotional chips. Like I said, one time I forgot about some promo chips I had received in the not so distant past, but I have never stated that I "never" get promotional chips!
    What are these? I found 'em on the ground? That's a pic of some promo chips I received at some point during the past six months; by no means all of the promo chips I have received recently.

    I don't take pics of everything, but if you like I'll show you thousands in promo chips I receive over the course of the next weeks.

    FOR THE MODS

    Buried within the very first post of this thread:

    Quote: MDawg



    For example, on a recent trip I played in the area of around seventy some (under eighty) hours at an average of $1200. a hand, at table games, and earned just about $80,000. in theoretical loss., and notwithstanding that I won over fifty grand on the trip, this theo loss against 40%, earned me over $30,000. in comps.



    How is this thread not just a new discussion of MDawg hidden adventures?

    Already by page ten there are the same challenges being made and similar threats of multiple suspension that made the original MDawg adventures such a hotbed of contention that it needed to be hidden?

    You guys made it that. I posted an example of how theo loss works. "For example."
    I post real world examples of real world events in tune with the topic, and you claim that this is somehow wrong? Alan posted an example of his friend who was challenged on the -25K blowout loss comp.

    But now that you guys have turned it into a discussion of WHAT MDAWG CLAIMS: I am asking you to post the backup for what you claim MDawg claims/ has said.

    I believe that no such quotes exist at WOV to backup what you are claiming I said affirmatively. You're trying to red herring the issue. An issue that you opened up, here, in this thread.

    Is that really what this thread is supposed to be about?

    I created it to discuss the way comps are calculated, to discuss what I view as a method for a perpetual comp machine, and explained how it has worked for me.

    But if people are going to put words in my mouth on something that is tangentially related to the topic, I'd at least like to see where I said whatever it is that they claim I said.

    Absolutely NOT. MDawg has indeed injected much of his hidden thread into this one. He didn't need much encouragement, but has not broken any rules.

    If you believe that your function in this forum is to respond to WOV posts by saying that you found the post not interesting, and you persist in doing that then the moderators will have a discussion about whether that constitutes trolling.

    I imagine that everyone on this forum finds some number of posts not interesting, but it is not Billryan's role to review posts and then make an additional post that calls out posts that he finds uninteresting. No forum functions like that and this forum does not function like that.

    My function on this forum is to post what I want, when I want. If you think that merits a discussion among the moderators, go for it. Perhaps you should take your own advice- if you don't like what a poster says, don't read it.

    You wouldn't be interested in following the advice you quoted? And are you saying that your function of posting what you want, when you want, should be left to you alone?

    Why does anyone have to be "bamboozled"? If Wizard allows you to post what you want, why would you think he'd fetter another's free speech?

    I would like to compare Mdawg's play to the value of his comps.

    I doubt he gets the value he claims.

    First of all, hotel rooms including suites, are basically free. Even the Evil Empire handed out free rooms like nickel candy.

    If Mdawg is as big a player as he claims I think the true value of his comps is one-tenth of one percent of his sction... not some double digit percentage unless he's a big loser.

    I'm not going to penalise for the word 'BullCrap', which I consider the mildest of expetives.
    I concur to an extent that much of this thread has been a thinly veiled extension of MDawg's Adventures thread. All about how 'it works for me'
    Obviously MDawg has referenced his massive and incredible winning ways to explain his massive and incredible comps. Mdawg has provided 'evidence' of both.

    Members here are not obliged to post 'The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth'
    Members here are not obliged to believe everything or anything within the posts of others.

    I invite Mdawg to not take every tangential reference to be an invitation to reference his adventures.

    WIN statements (which are available only after the end of the year anyway) would show the total win, but still wouldn't be enough to evaluate the comps extended. Indeed, knowing how much someone won in the aggregate might not help figure comps at all, for example if someone ended up dead even at the end of the year, still he might've generated massive massive comps along the way.

    Theo loss is based on average bet / number of hours played / house edge.

    Win $50K in one hand, walk away - not much theo loss, not much comps. Win $50K over ten hours at average $1500. a hand, that's a lot of theo, and a lot of comps.

    Which is why the answers to your question would still not address it entirely.

    You like to investigate things. How about going to Resorts World and Venetian, just for example, finding a top host, and asking what % of actual loss they comp, and what % of theo loss they comp.


    By the way hotel suites are by no means free. Especially nowadays - the casino model is (or at least definitely was, pre-Covid) gravitating more and more towards trying to make money off non-gamblers. You're talking about something from the past, about hotel rooms being considered as automatic freebies by the casino. And maybe you missed this discussion:
    https://wizardofvegas.com/forum/questions-and-answers/gambling/36459-perpetual-comp-machine/#post824767
    about how the average high end resort Vegas hotel room costs something like a million or more to build, such that the hotel needs to recover that somehow, such that - hotel rooms are far from "free."

    Wynn dropped their prices for a very short time. The results - undesirables in the resort - prompted them to raise the rates back up, and metal detect guests at the entrances on weekends last year.

    Venetian did have some of that available at low prices for a period, but their prices are on the rise again too.

    During Covid, actual loss comps were being handed out at 15%. Back to 10% again now. Contact Venetian or Resorts World if you want to verify.

    Again, you're talking about the past. A short period of the past no less.

    Anyway, what's your point? Whatever the suite room rack rate is, or less (casino rate, etc.), is where the room comp value is figured. That rate is never 0.

    My point is casinos don't give away as much as you say they do

    According to you the casinos are getting their clocks cleaned by you at the tables and then again with comps.

    Sorry. Doesnt make sense. Certainly doesnt make business sense.

    But it would make sense if your comps equaled one-tenth of one percent of your betting, plus the free rooms.

    Just totals. Total bets made. Total value of comps. Two numbers.

    My last year playing at Caesars I had a tier score just over 1 million points. That was the equivalent of three and a third Seven Stars. My comps over and above free rooms were not double digit percentages.

    Remember, I am a guppy so have no real personal experience with high level comps. But I find it hard to believe there is someone you can ‘call’ at Venetian or Resorts World that will say out loud…. “We will comp you 10% of your actual loss”. Wouldn’t they need to be more vague?

    If not, I can round up $1,000,000, bet it on the pass line, win $1,000,000 49% of the time and lose $1,000,000 51% of the time, but get $100,000 in comps? Numbers approximate, concept is valid.

    If not, I can round up $1,000,000, bet it on the pass line, win $1,000,000 49% of the time and lose $1,000,000 51% of the time, but get $100,000 in comps? Numbers approximate, concept is valid.

    you and your wife could each bet 500,000 on opposite sides for an hour and end up owning the joint.

    No, it won't work at craps. There's a house edge on both sides, and I doubt the comps will erase the house edge.

    Wrong. If the premise is that you get 10% of your ACTUAL loss back in comps, the loser gets $100k in comps.

    In the real world I AGREE with you. That’s why I’m saying NO ONE in authority will categorically guarantee you that 10%. If you bet $5k a hand at baccarat and end up down $100k after a bad run of 4 hours, then of course I could see you being comped $10k, likely more.

    You doubt wrong.

    In fact it's called doey-don't system and if you can get it past prying eyes (yes that can be done too) it works just fine.

    That's the house edge on both sides.

    My mail offers have only been a fraction of my comps. Heck, my wedding was comped... Rabbi, still and video photographers, lunch, dinner, champagne at the craps table and all. And it was a $5 table for my guests.

    I understand your experience with comps leads you to the conclusion they cannot be taken advantage of.

    There are professional comp hustlers who understand how to make a profit.

    I can't tell you more than that. Secrets of the trade.

    At Baccarat they will generally not allow a player to bet both the Player and Bank at the same time. (The only exception I have seen was at casinos where free hands are not allowed, some of those casinos will allow a player to bet a few hands with 100 on each side to "pay" for the free hands at $5. per on each Bank hit.) I am sure the same at Craps table as far as the same player betting the do and don't at the same time.

    I play private tables these days so there is no one else at my table, period, if that is what anyone is getting at in my case. Also at the Wizard observed session which was at a public table I won and although a couple of small players did show up at some point during the session there was no betting in symmetry going on. Anyway, I am sure we are well beyond that sort of accusation. I recall AxelWolf was thinking that I might be up to something like that early on when I arrived at the scene, but after my Wizard observed session he posted

    Darkoz you're not telling me anything new. Sure there are ways to take advantage of comps.

    Hell, I got a free wedding.

    I had twenty people for Thanksgiving weekend with Thanksgiving dinner and comped rooms.

    I can list comps forever.

    But I cant accept that Strip casinos routinely comp 10% or 15% of theo for players who are big winners.

    They don't comp 10 or 15% of theo, they comp 35 or 40% of theo. Win, lose or draw, that's the way it works.

    Banned from the casino entirely? That's a different story, but as long as the player is still playing, the comp machine keeps flowing.
