    You may well be right.

    I see some 'ribbing' going on here. The recipient, thereof may find it irritating, upsetting or even insulting.

    The perpetual comp machine requires a little more than stay at home theory. It requires action. At the casinos.

    That blue one may not be a vitamin. What are the odds of any hardway after that? I might actually believe it if you told me you got some 60 BJs in a row.

    The truth of the matter is once you can go into a casino and gamble on 60 different player's cards accounts and get sixty calendars in the mail that are all identical...

    Then and only then can you brag that you understand how the comps system works.

    Sixty identical calenders in the mail. What are the odds? (Very good if you are Darkoz).

    I don't play scratchers. The only comps are the 2nd chance drawing which is still way too -EV for me. Mission146 wrote an article about it and used my state for a huge portion of the article. Again, Im all about the COMPS especially in this particular thread! ;o)

    Very funny guys. Very poetic Rainman.
    No suspensions so far. Not Axelwolf, Not Rainman, Not Darkoz, Not Even Dieter.

    I hope we can all have our little chuckle, and then take my 'good cop' advice. Knock it off. Guys. No more hijacking, No bullying.

    Cheers guys.

    What security does an AP have if they get sick? Or have an accident?

    Who pays the premiums for the self insurance you set up?

    Does a young AP have the discipline to set aside savings from day one?

    My pension plan, funded by my employers, started in 1972. I never would have had the discipline to make similar contributions till my retirement in 2018. I am now guaranteed health insurance for life over and above what I get from Medicare.

    How many APs also file taxes so they also have Social Security benefits in addition to their pensions or 401ks?

    If an AP can maintain their income and their contributions to retirement and health insurance and file taxes as self employed so they get Social Security and Medicare then more power to them and congratulations are in order.

    Long term disability insurance? (and/or short term)

    (Basically if you get injured so bad or seriously sick to the point that you cannot work in the same capacity, ever again, or for a long period of time, you get a set amount of monthly benefits. Short term you can get virtually instantly, but only lasts a few months, long term you usually have to wait 90-180 days from the date of injury/illness before the benefits can begin, so many people carry both to cover the gap, which is not generally wise. Of course Short Term is scammy since most people can last for 90 days without a paycheck, and people are often persuaded into buying in based on fear of not being able to pay the bills until their "elimination period" elapses, if you have an emergency fund there should never be a need for short term unless you get it for free from your employer. You should never pay money for short term, you should have an emergency fund that can last 90-180 days+, if you get it for 100% free, great, but never buy it, even if you employer pays a portion -even the majority-, its still not worth it long term, its one of the worst insurance products, and is usually sold with scare tactics of not being able to make it through your elimination period for you long term disability).

    Most providers offer it (Long Term disability) . And, APs can get a policy like anyone else.

    (Though if you are employed full time, you likely get both for free, or at the very least long term -which is really what matters-, generally set to be calculated at a monthly rate that comes to 60% of your salary, so its another benefit to account for before leaving your job. But also a benefit that can be purchased if self-employer, as an AP).

    As for APs not having the discipline to contribute themselves to retirement, that argument can apply to anyone who is self-employed (or even works a regular job, but at somewhere with no retirement plan) ....

    Thanks for the shoutout! It's quite gratifying to know that people have read that and understand how truly putrid State Lotteries are! While my articles and WoV pages are driven by research, the main goal was to emphasize how terrible that these games are so that readers will stay completely away from them.

    Hope this is on topic. Iíve been away from Vegas for a while. Going back in November for the first time in six years. Is Ultimate Texas Holdem (played correctly) still a good way to get comps that are disproportionate to expected loss? Do people still play terribly?

    Got my free memory foam pillow from Mardi Gras today. Turned my $150 free play into $165.60 real money and left.

    I used $25 of it APing Scarab. Found one on spin 5 of 10 at $3.75/spin with decent wilds. Cashed it out at $60.60. Then I did the last $125 on Double Double Bonus VP turning the $125 into $105.

    PERPETUAL COMP MACHINE!!!

    Free play requires no true coin in to activate here.

    Part of comps of course are "RFB," and the F part means - that you gotta eat.

    There's a line from Chinatown when Jack Nicholson questions why Noah Cross is trying so hard to corner the water supply market for the city, "How much better can you eat? what can you buy that you can't already afford?'

    Well, here's a fish we ate more than once during this trip that cost $78. a pound, came in at $230. just for the fish, with the meal coming in at the four hundred dollar range (no beverage, just food). All comp'ed.


    Fagri, flown in from the Mediterranean daily.


    And here's a salmon we had, different restaurant, costing 1/10 as much, and including vegetable and brown rice sides. Also comp'ed.



    Was the Fagri really 10X better than the salmon? Well it was some of the best fish we've ever had, but...10X better? Or maybe just different? Put it this way, I wouldn't want to eat that particular fish daily, free or not. But the salmon - maybe.

    This is just part of the way they do it in high end restaurants, and not necessarily just within casinos...nothing exceeds like excess.

    I thought about starting an Adventures of Mwalz thread, but was afraid it'd be trolling. Thought maybe you guys would enjoy reading about a low rolling gambler who loses about the house edge long term but chalks it up as entertainment expense when I do. The promos and comps offset it some, but still not enough to overcome the -EV of casino games.

    Think there's a market here for that type of info? ;o)

    Hmmmm I think it's been tried by Redietz and was deemed to be trolling by the Wizard. Let's take a look at where the earlier thread overstepped the line.

    So Mwalz, it looks like what wizard sees as your motivation would decide whether it's trolling.
    I personally agree that there is a market for a truthful telling of trip reports by a typical low roller. But would it soon mutate into a troll magnet?

    Hey MDawg,

    When I look at that fish it sure seems as though I heard ďI gave my life for you O Great MZdawg,, enjoy sir I am pleased to have surrendered to someone as special and great as you you!!Ē.

    I think most would agree.

    I've changed my mind. Marcus is not a supportive sock puppet. He is a real person who is *mocking* Mdawg !!

    I wasnít going to comment but I have to.

    I am not a sock puppet! And I would never mock the Super Great MDawg. He is in fact, GREAT! I owe much to him.

    Thanks for talking me down and insulting my factual posts. I can only assume it made you feel goodÖ?Ö

    I personally agree that there is a market for a truthful telling of trip reports by a typical low roller. But would it soon mutate into a troll magnet?

    I've been wary of posting tales of my coin pusher exploits. I am not sure that I could stay on topic and respectful; somewhat atypically for me, I prefer to err on the "not making trouble" side of this line.

    That said, I did get a couple chili cheese dogs comped last night. They were barely worth what I paid. There is an appropriate amount for the buns to be steamed; they overshot the mark considerably. The Gehl's cheese sauce was good, as usual.

    As far as comp'ed food, what I find is that after a winning session I have a voracious appetite. For food, sex, all that. After losing, I barely want to crawl into the shower and go to bed. All the comp'ed caviar in the world isn't going to change my mood.

    In other words nothing is better than being in a fully comp'ed huge suite, RFB, on top of a win. Nothing is worse than being in Vegas, period, losing! I see it on the faces of the losers in the casinos - they don't seem to be having a good time at all.

    Whatever you do, don't lose! And then take the comps.

    Which gets back to my pic I posted about, Take the cash. And the cannoli.


    And why the perpetual comp machine should ideally be based on theo loss only. It's not really feasible anyway to keep comps rolling based on actual loss. The 10% is too low, and at that rate most anyone would go broke eventually. Definitely not perpetual anyway.

    You are SPOT ON 100 PERCENT with those statements.

    I see it on a smaller scale at our casino properties in the Midwest all the time, year after year after year.

    There are still some people that spend a lot of money gambling where I am at and donít forget hands go up to $10,000 a hand as well. They might not be bringing hundreds of thousands of dollars, only a rare few, but thereís countless players that bring tens of thousands of dollars in their attempt to make hundreds of thousands of dollars, several nights a week.

    I see it all the time, very clear, very plain and what happens is very simple. What MDawg is telling you people is what I do believe is the factual truth and if you really read into it, it can help allow you to realize how hard it actually is to consistently make money at any casino.

    Once again, I praise and thank the Great MDawg for allowing me to build a good size bankroll, ALL WIN MONEY, as well as the tens of thousands of dollars I won in my 14 sessions and 1 mini session I played so far.

    I have never known anyone who ate fagri, and I'm fascinated by why people eat food (or drink wine ) that is fabulously expensive Can you tell us a little more fagri?

    Was it served with a sauce or with spices that provided most of the taste experience?
    Was it at all oily?
    Was the fishmeat light or heavy?
    Anything you could compare its taste to?
    So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

    Good questions. First of all, the Vegas casino restaurant where we got the Fagri is one where you pick the fish off the ice. It is flown in daily from the Mediterranean. This was a take out meal, but we have dined in at this restaurant too. All the different fish I have picked at this restaurant have been good, but this was the second time choosing Fagri. I picked it because it looked golden and shiny.

    The fish has a meaty, somewhat oily taste. A bit heavy, but also somewhat flakey. (Not as solid as say swordfish, but heavier than say salmon.) There are no small bones throughout the flesh, all the bones seem concentrated in certain areas only. Does not taste fishy at all. When eating the Fagri I have gone ahead and eaten the skin too, which tells you that it is not fishy at all. I am not a fan of fish skin (do not eat salmon skin).

    I would compare it to a more meaty, slightly more oily Branzino.

    Here is a red snapper we had from the same place, a different time.

    At $68 / lb. why not just get the Fagri at $78.? although I believe that the red snapper too, is from the Mediterranean not locally sourced. Compared to red snapper fagri is oilier, slightly more solid, slightly more flavorful.

    Here is another Fagri from another occasion.


    All the fish we have had from that place have been ordered simply prepared, with just olive oil and sea salt, and the capers. No sauce provided just the parsley garnish.
    Come to think of it, next time might ask them to go even easier on the salt. At home when I grill fish I use no salt, only olive oil, pepper and herbs.

    It is not obvious to me that "any WOV trip report entitled "Adventures" is a troll attempt or at a minimum parody, emulation, or a dig at MDawg."

    When our troublesome member 'Nathan' created a thread 'Nathan's corner'. The Wizard himself said that any member could start a 'corner' thread. I believe it is absolutely wrong for anyone to assert exclusivity over a thread incorporating the word 'Adventures'. Should any parody thread result in rule infringement, we would deal with that.
    Psalm 25:16 Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. Proverbs 18:2 A fool finds no satisfaction in trying to understand, for he would rather express his own opinion.

    Well, you're just one man, and one opinion. As am I.

    But if MWalz9 wants to pay homage to the Adventures of MDawg, that is what he would be doing, at a minimum. Why not make your own mark, and start something new? Like the way MarcusClark66 did with his "I Have Learned A Lot Here and Ready To Play" thread.

    For example when Terapined started his "The REAL Adventures" of blah blah blah he made it clear in the very first post what his motivation was, if it wasn't already clear by the title.

    This description of comps simply isn't perpetual because the comps don't generate more comps.

    What MDawg described is gambling further to get more comps. I'm not going to get into winning against a -EV, but to generate more comps he has to play with his cash at risk.

    That's normal gambling for comps IMHO.

    Perpetual comps would be when the comps generate more comps in a perpetual loop so no money is needed to be put at risk.

    In essence a similar scenario as a perpetual motion machine.

    Kind of like if you could take one person's freeplay and use it to generate someone else's

    Im at Mardi Gras as we speak picking up the 3rd item from this weeks bedroom set giveaway. Even using my 41 years old, the average age of people in this line has to be 70.2+.

    On a side note, I turned $150 in free play into $290 real money before I got in line. Another profitable drive and stop at the local brick and mortar.

    Quote: AlanMendelson

    Thanks Mdawg.

    I've played in tournaments where the top prize was as much as $100,000 in free play chips but I never asked if they were one time even money chips or "as live" chips.

    Just before the pandemic I won an hourly drawing for $500 of free play chips at Red Rock. They were one time even money chips.

    I havent seen "as live" chips probably in a decade.
    link to original post


    Below are some promo chips I've received over the course of my trips. I've received tens of thousands of dollars of these over the past two years.

    The Wynn chips are play until you lose, ones that you call "live." The Station Casino ones are one time only, win or lose.




    Some of the casinos differentiate between "Promo" chips which some use that "Promo" term to refer solely to play until you lose chips, and "FreeBet" chips which are good for one bet only, and offer both.

    To get "Promo" chips, some of the casinos require high (over >100K) credit lines, while at these same casinos, "FreeBet" chips are more readily available.

    Like any other "comp" these are available based on either actual or theoretical loss at table game play. These, especially the high denomination Promo chips, are not handed out freely. And these issued chips will deplete all available comps, at least to some extent.
