Kolor -

How very cool for you!!!!! I remember thinking it would never happen to us and I was so excited when it finally did.

You will also find that once comped, you will be given even more choices. We are heading back in mid January and we had a pick of three different places all completely comped!!!!!

Enjoy!!!!!!!!!

I feel really stupid asking this, but I'm going to anyway. How much do you have to "spend" gambling before you get comped??

I dont know how much you have to spend to get comped, but I would't chance the comps down. I just play and if it happens it happens.

I used my husbands card at Flamingo and played for about 2 hours, he gets a mailer every few months now with free rooms.

(I didn't want to use my card because I was staying/playing at Paris on my card and didn't want to screw up my ADT by visiting a second casino. I play a decent amount and get free rooms from all the HET properties)

I was very surprised that that minimal play generated free rooms. I was playing nickels, 9 or 18 a spin, I think I actually "spent' 40 bucks, put about 300 points on the card (1500 through the machines)

I actually recieved the offer in the mail. It was good for 3 comped nights between december 18-feb. 19 so we chose valentines day weekend...figured i could kill 2 birds with one stone. Me and the wife are big time slot players here in south florida and there in vegas. When we went back in sept. for 5 days we brought about $5,000 with us to cover our entire trip(food, cabs, gambling, shows, etc.)

If im not mistaken with the MGM card you recieve 1 point per dollar gambled. Well when we started the week I had about 1,100 points and at the end of the week after being up and down and up and down, I had approx. 13,000 points on it. So we GAMBLED about 12,000 i think but we came home with 2,700 so we only spent about 2,300....so I considered that a great trip, coming home with something. Also at the end of the trip I went to the concierge desk and asked to have some things taken care of on our room bill, and they did....they took off all of our food and beverage because whenever we ate somewhere we just charged it to the room( approx. 400) was taken care of. So we will see what damage we can do this time when we go

Just a wee observation here- you had $400 took off for your meals etc meaning roughly you spent $1900 for the trip (approx) in turn you got 3 nights at the Mirage comped- i hope its a great room at over $600 a night :-))

Sorry, wasnt trying to take the shine off of your good fortune, but i was always taught you get nothing for nothing, i think this is quite a good example.

Enjoy your trip anyways :-)
