Comps at the Wynn (and/or Vegas in general)
 
Couldn't find any recent info regarding the Wynn specifically either on 2+2(except this Feb 06 post here ), allvegaspoker, or pokerwikia

I'm going to be staying at the Wynn for New Years (the nights of 12/30 and 12/31) at a $330/night poker rate. I'm going to be playing 1/3NL and 2/5NL depending on time of day.

A couple questions:
How/where do I get some sort of Player's card to clear my time for my poker rate?
Do I only get $1/hr that goes towards meal comps? Any sneaky ways to get more than this (preferably for the buffet)?

Thanks, I'm not very experienced with Vegas.

They will give you a ed card when you check in that is your room key and players card. You can try greasing a floorman to get a buffet, may or may not work.

KLJ,

Thanks a lot for this thread as I"m sure many others are also curious about the Wynn. I respect you a great deal. You can use your room key or you can get a separate card from the poker room(just ask any floor). As for getting extra comps, thats usually reserved for regulars who have developed some rapport with a floor person there. If its important to you, then I guess tip one guy the first time you're there, say hi to him(same guy) as you come the second time, then when you leave the second time tip him again and ask for a comp.

But I really don't think thats worth it, as you're barely even making money then. You're spending $330/night on a hotel- just spend an extra $20 or whatever it is for the buffet yourself. However, if you play any casino games then you should have no problem getting much bigger comps.

May I wish you the best of luck both in the weeks leading up to your trip and on your trip.

Love,
Assani

They can make the card for you in the poker room. You get much more than the $1/hour, basically as long as your clocked into a game you get a daily $20 food comp which should cover two meals a day in the poker room and I am fairly certain you can use that towards the buffet. Just ask a floor or chip runner for the comp before heading to the buffet, the $1/hour might cover the rest.

I was there this weekend and the guy sitting next to me asked if I had a card, I said no, and he just flagged down a floor guy who took my license and came back with a card 10 minutes later.

The regular said that if you ask the right floor people they'll let you go negative on your comp balance, but I don't really know who that is or how well that would work.

$20 a day?? I guess you'd have to ask for the comp before you order the food(in the poker room)?

Nah, Thursday at 1/3. The day when there was a dude sitting at a 2/5NL table with a sick stack of 24 grand (although if I heard correctly he was there for more than one day).

I started writing up a small Vegas trip report, but I'm kinda lazy.

Re: Comps at the Wynn (and/or Vegas in general)
 
You can go up to $100 in the negative. Min. comp is $20 they load your card and if you only use $15.90 then thats all it takes off your comps.

All good info. I'll be playing and staying at the Wynn Friday and Saturday. I'm looking forward to getting my revenge on the 1/3 or dabbbling in the 2-5. Those 3 dollar chips confused the hell out of me.

Re: Comps at the Wynn (and/or Vegas in general)
 
My last time there I wanted a sandwich. I tell the person assigned to get the food that I didn't know if I had enough on my card to cover the meal. She says to just give her the card and I got my food, no prob. They treat the players pretty well at the Wynn. I wish they'd become the #1 room in LV, but I like the B's 30 the best.

Re: Comps at the Wynn (and/or Vegas in general)
 
Glad I found this thread! I will also be staying over New Years Eve on the poker rate and I am really pumped up for the entire trip. I wish it was tomorrow.

Currently I multitable NL 100 mainly and plan to move up to NL 200 soon. My bankroll currently sits at 6K and hopefully will be larger come New Years.

I have been debating whether or not I want to play the $4/$8 limit game, or the $1/$3 NL game. I wanted to know what you guys opinions of the cash games were.

Does the no max buy in at the 1/3 game make the game play much bigger than it is? What are standard opening raises? What would you say an average buy in is? What would you recommend buying in at? How do you anticipate the competition being over New Years?

Thanks!

No max at the wymm, Buy in for 300-500 is the standard. You dont need as much of a bankroll live as the competition is extremlly poor you should play 1/3 at least, keep an eye on the 2/5 at night, if a couple of guys are drunk you should take a shot.

Fwiw the salmons are perfect for the floor toke. $3 gets you $20. I would always just hand the floor my card, holding a salmon between my thumb and the card, and ask for either zooza or buffet comp. From my first day in the room I had a 100% success rate w/ this strategy.

Hmm, so they're actually giving you a poker rate? (albeit modified) for new years? Interesting...

I was going to talk about this game in my TR, but I'll do it now.

The 1/3 game is played with $3 chips which makes it kind of different. It took me about an hour or so to really get use to the bet sizing and chip stacks. 3 is not a nice number, but once you get used to just thinking in terms of chips it gets pretty easy.

I usually play 1/2 with $5 chips and I found the 1/3 game played noticably smaller. While I'm use to $10-$20 preflop raises the 1/3 game had standard preflop raises to $9-$15. Each street compared similarly with the 1/3 game being typically smaller but still more chips.

I found this structure led to some interesting changes. A limped pot preflop would usually have $12-18 in it (compared to 8-12 in 1/2) and then a standard flop bet of $12 (compared to $15 or 20 in 1/2) had a pretty good chance of taking the pot down. The bigger preflop pot and smaller flop bet led to a great opportunity to practice my LAG game because smaller $ value bets seemed to have a greater effect from the multiple chips. Maybe I just had a particularly weak-tight table.

I didn't find that the no-max buy-in had a big effect. In fact I only saw two people buy in for more than $300 and they were both very good. Most people had stacks between $100-$300 and I think I only saw 4 or 5 pots greater than $250 in my 14 hour session.

Overall I found it really fun (lots of chips always is) but not as profitable as a 1/2 game, and definitely not as profitable as the 2/5 game at Bellagio was on the weekend.

Brag: I was informed by a casino host at the Wynn that I was in the negative 4 figures on my comp balance.

Beat: I lost $12K at blackjack last trip.

Variance: BUT I STILL WON????

It depends on the table. I've been in some that had small opening raises like that, but most of them opened from $15 to $25. Or $24 I guess.

Re: Comps at the Wynn (and/or Vegas in general)
 
I made my first trip to the Wynn over the Thanksgiving holiday. I asked the floor several comp related questions, so my info ought to be pretty up to date.

I got a red card immediately at the window next to the cashier at the back of the room.
They told me that once I booked 20 hours of time I would be comped.

During play, lots of regulars ordered sandwiches at the table and a few told me that they always did so and never worried about balances. They assumed that you had free meals at the table.
I asked again at the front desk and was told that I had 18 hours at that moment, and that when I hit 20 I should come back to the desk and have them "register" the comp.

I suspect that as a new player, you have to do 20 hours there to qualify for comping priveleges.
Having crossed that barrier, they get very liberal with the comps. At least I hope so for when I return. I did go down to the coffee bar around the corner and got a ten dollar sandwich, a six dollar bag of chips and a four dollar coke....

I didn't try to order at the poker table before I finished the 20 hours. You might try it to see if that will work.

Next time I will definately do the tableside ordering.

Wynn is a really nice room. Personnel are friendly and efficient. Have a good time!

Re: Comps at the Wynn (and/or Vegas in general)
 
so if i want a buffet comp, is there any way to get a paper version of these via a tip?

i've never played there, and will likely hit the 20 hour threshold a couple hours before leaving

I'm not really a germ-a-phobe but I can't handle eating at the table. It disgusts me.

Edit: I mean I personally can't handle it, but I don't care if other people do it. At least people with basic social skills that don't goo up the cards.

I asked for a buffet comp, pretty sure they would say no, and they were very nice and gave it to me no problem, etc. I was so pleased, and headed down without looking at it twice. Turned out to be a line card! But it's a nice room, and I think becoming 'known' even over just one weekend would help.

By line card you mean it gets you to the front and you still have to pay? Or you get to the front and get it free?

Wow - this is eye opening. I had no idea they would be this liberal if you are just sitting and playing. Last month when I was there a weeknight buffet was about $36 with tax. But if the game is good then the $20 of comped food while playing is great.

I like this line and will try it next time. Would you say you were considered a regular? What is zooza? buffet worth more than $20 there an if they can give you th eline pass to boot then it's even better.
