Quickest Way to Get Comped Rooms?

I use to take 2-3 day trips in AC. But then i lost mid 4 digits over 1-2 trips and suddenly i got free rooms from the casinos. I had 2 free rooms per week Sunday-Thursday at Taj Mahal and 1 free night at any of the Caesars properties, though most of the time, it was only showboat or ballys. I use to play tons of table games and played very long and lost money. Obviously that is how i got free rooms.

My question is... is there a quicker way to get free rooms? I remembered when i lost that much, the next day i came back home. Then logged into my account and what you know, free rooms just like that. Anyone here have a trick on how to do it besides table games? I heard someone mentioned go put $20 or $50 in a slot machine and play 30 minutes and then after that, i should see room offers? Is this true? I do like playing video poker though i have no clue what im doing. I refuse to play slots though b/c i have no idea how it goes... except the 777 etc.

I'm trying to go and then get comped rooms so i can get free nights at Taj Mahal, harrahs properties and also borgata. I'm going to play poker at borgata and taj and maybe harrahs. Does anyone know what is the easiest and quickest way to get comped rooms? I'm not going to go and play blackjack for 2 hours $25-$50 though like last time because i ended up losing so much money.

My plan was when i get there, just put $20 or $50 and then play 25 cents or 50 cents in video poker and do it for 30 minutes at Taj Mahal. Then do that at Caesars and then do that at Borgata. Would doing that get me some type of free rooms? Of course i will then go play poker but i'm wondering if this could get comped rooms.

And to you guys who get comped rooms, how much days do you get at each property. As i read online, it seems like Taj Mahal gives 2 free rooms max one week, harrahs properties allow only 1 a week, and Borgata gives 2 a week? Can someone confirm this? Anyone here get friday/saturday room? I only want to get free rooms comped.

I'm wondering if i could just do a 1 day casino trip where i go and play for 4 hours and then leave back on the bus back home. Then check online and maybe few days later, i would get comped rooms? Or would that never happen? I was thinking about just play video poker all that time at each of those 3 properties. I know if i play at Caesars, its the same as playing at showboat. I was thinking maybe do this at tropicana as well to see if i can get comped rooms.

Anyone here can give me advice? Is it possible to get it by not touching table games? What about just poker? I would play 1/2NL poker though. Thank you!

Your best bet is to play only at one casino. Spreading your dollars through 3 or 4 casinos gives you less chance of being comped. Once on a comp list it takes a long time before you don't get offers. Its been a year since we have been to Biloxi but offers come to us monthly.

Poker won't get you much. Poker players rarely get comped rooms. They are however likely to be eligible for the Poker Rate which is a discount.

The more time and more money you play the better the offers will be,Gambling less will not get you very many "if" any offers especially during busy times

If you put $50 in a slot machine and are very lucky and end up playing a lot of money thru the machine, you might get a single comped night available Monday to Thursday in the slow parts of the winter.

The casinos give comps based on how much money they expect you to lose and how busy they expect to be on a given night.

Does putting $20 differ from putting $100 in a video poker machine? Would playing 50 cent a pull and doing it for 1 hour be enough?

It doesn't matter how much you put in the machine initially,it matters on how much you cycle through that machine.ADT (average daily theoretical) is what matters,it's how much the Casino thinks you are lilkey to lose.If you don't gamble much you're not likely to lose much.

Would playing 50 cent a pull and doing it for 1 hour be enough?

NO!! If you're not going to gamble the casino is not going to give you any Comps. You're better off just paying for your room and not chase Comps with money you can't afford to lose.

If putting a $20 bill in a slot machine or playing 50 cents a hand for an hour would get you free rooms, everyone in the world would have free rooms at the casino.

As the expression goes, "I beg to differ".

At "50 cents a pull" on a slot machine, assuming you do about 8 spins a minute, you'll run $240 through the machine in an hour. And that, in non-Summer months and in non-Holiday times, is often enough to get a free weekday night at Bally's or Showboat or Resorts or even the Tropicana. You won't get much else, except maybe $5 in slot play and maybe a coupon for a "BOGO" buffet, but in my opinion and experience, as little as a couple hundred bucks run through the machines may get you a room comp at the less fancy joints.

If you win that new 3 card poker 6 card bonus side bet in ANY suit, you will get free rooms instantly! A more practical method is to spend a short session in the high limit room and hope you dont lose too much.

My experience- around 30-45 minutes at the $25 minimum single 0 roulette at Resorts and I received offers within a couple weeks for Sun-Fri. Although I dont know for sure, I'm fairly certain I could have gotten a room that night if I had needed one.
