Ever since this visit, I've been getting offer after offer from the Venetian/Palazzo for complimentary nights at the casino. The fine print says that I need to maintain my historical level of play. Out of curiosity, I checked to find out how much I had cycled through the machine in the 90 minutes I was playing... turns out it was quite a bit! $4,679!!
So, THAT'S why I've been receiving offer after offer... well, I called up to find out more about the program. Other interesting tidbits:
- If you're a poker player and you play 6 hours a day in the poker room, they will reduce the amount of your suite (as long as your price is $399 or less) to $119 on Sun - Thurs and $159 on Fri-Sat nights. So, you can book the fancy suites for $369/night, play your six hours in the poker room and then have the poker desk call to the front desk to have them adjust your room rate. Good to know!
- You earn food comps while you're playing. But they don't carry over! I had earned about $50 of food credit from my 90 minutes of video black jack and I had no idea!
- They won't charge you for your hotel room if you don't maintain your level of play. They just won't offer you any more free nights.
- To earn comps by playing slots, it's better to play longer with smaller bets than the way I did it, which was very concentrated playing.
- To get a comped night for playing table games, your average bet has to be about $200/bet.
- If you're staying there, open a credit line, charge everything to your room and then when you leave, check to see if you have any comps. If you do, have it applied to your bill.
- If you aren't staying there and play the slots, you can go to a credit desk to get the credits you've earned (like my $50!!) transferred to a restaurant so you can use it up before you go.
I'm ready for another Vegas trip! Who's with me?
