You don't tip your host, get them a gift by all means but no tip, well I never tipped any of mine anyhow.

Just take him/her a nice souvenir from your home state. What is ND known for? Drop it off with VIP services.

We've been taking our host smoked salmon because he loves it and we usually meet up with him a day or two into our visit to give it to him.

I tip my host $100 and the charges start disappearing off my bill like invisible ink and the comps just keep rolling in.

I give ours a $50-$100 gift card to Macy's. Women like to shop

50$ to 100$ is fair. Cash, if a host has a gift from every guest home state they would need a storage locker.

I always give our host a $200 pre-paid Visa with a thank you card. She is an amazing lady and goes out of her way to make our trips great. If she is off when I'm leaving the hotel I just leave the card with the host services with her name on it marked personal and confidential.

Agreed, cash or a gift card etc. No gift type stuff, souvenirs, candy, bath sets etc. Kinda like giving a teacher apple themed stuff. They have enough of that stuff! And don't want it anyway.

A hosts job is to get you to lose as much as possible while making you feel as special as your gambling;s theoretical loss allows.

Do you have a host or a Casino Sales Executive from Caesars Entertainment? The later just books the comps you have on the TR site. Would you tip the person who answers the phone at hotel reservations.
