Table Games: $100 a hand for at least five hours to get room comp or casino rate. Casino rate varies from day to day depending on level of business.
Slots: Vary from slot to slot but every 100 points you earn equals $10 cash back.
Rewards Program: Venetian Players Club
Our tip: The Casino Host is the only person who can make a room comp or casino rate happen. So get to know him/her well and ask for what kind of comp you can earn.
Table Games: $75 average bet a hand for fours hours a day will earn you casino rate or other higher-end comps. $150 average bet for four hours is needed for the room comp.
Slots: 700 points a day for a casino rate of $159 (standard room) during the week or $239 on Friday and Saturday. 3,500 points a day on slots will get you a comped room. $3 equals one oint on the regular slot machines. $9 equals one point on the video poker machines.
Rewards Program: Red Card (which is also your room key.)
Our Tip: None of this information is listed on Wynn's fancy, flash-happy website so ask to speak with someone in Casino Marketing when you phone the hotel if you want to learn more about their rewards system.
Table Games: Must play at least four hours with considerable bets (most likely a $100 a hand) for casino rate of $149 during the week and $219 Friday and Saturday.
Slots: One dollar is equal to one point. Casino rates are offered for those who earn 1275 points.
Rewards Program: Players Club (which is available to the MGM properties, and several big strip hotels like Mandalay Bay and Excalibur will be joining this program come Fall.)
Our Tip: This place has a pretty tough room comp requirement and is probably something only high rollers blowing $20,000 in a few hours are entitled to.
Table Games: For a room comp, you need to average $100 a bet for four hours.
Slots: Averaging 3,500 to 4,000 per day of your stay will get you a room comp. $1.50 is equal to one point.
Rewards Program: Players club
Our Tip: Definitely speak with casino hosts upon checking out who are likely to at least comp some of your food and beverage when you gamble there. Remember, asking is the key to unlocking comps here.
Table Games: Typically, four hours of $100 bets a hand can get you a room comp. Anything under that, try to ask for a casino rate.
Slots: $1 equals one point. 400 points will get you $1 in comp money to use at the hotel.
Rewards Program: Club Palms
Our Tip: Be a high-roller. Who cares if you will spend the rest of your life and your children's and grandchildren's totally destitute. High-rollers here get amazing treatment and access to some of the Palms' Fantasy Tower fun suites.
Table Games: Can only earn comp dollars here. There is no set formula but they tend to stick to the 4 Hours/$100 a hand that most casinos use has measurement of how comp worthy you are.
Slots: $20 equals one point. On the video slots, $40 equals one point. Ten points get you $1 cash.
Rewards Program: Back Stage Pass
Our Tip: Again, like the Palms be a high-roller to experience some of the premiere rooms and services at this notorious party hotel. If you can't be a high-roller, then its good to know that you comp dollars can be used at the spa, hair salon and retail shops, although the latter only give you 50 percent of your comp dollar worth. I.E. You have a $100 comp they will only see it as $50.
Table Games: Finally, some respect here at Hooters for the hard-working man (or woman.) $25 a bet for four hours will get you a casino rate room. $100 a bet for four hours will get the comp.
Slots: 1,500 points a day for the casino rate rooms. 7,000 points for a room comp. One dollar equals one point.
Rewards Program: Club Orange
Our Tip: The hotel encourages you to spend money in the hotel if you are staying there and that will count towards your comp status. Although, there's only so many bad-tasting chicken wings we can handle.
