Default Re: Comps at the Wynn (and/or Vegas in general)

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????

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.

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.

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!

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?
