    Is there a point system for hosts based on someone's play? And is it how much a person puts through a slot? Just curious, bring a small diamond fish in a big pond.Thanks.

    No not really. I can't discuss compensation on here though that's proprietary information.

    But there has to be some sort of system that determines who gets what. It can't be just independently left up to the different hosts.

    depends on the host. an independent host's agreement varies widely from property to property but the bottom line is basically the same. how much do they need to "give" the player to get his action...

    Do hosts ever arrange for hookers or escorts to be sent to, or even placed in advance, in the suites of your high roller/ whales?

    Stop watching Owning Mahowny! One of my fav scenes is the hooker scene where he puts her jacket back on and says not interested. The guys watching on the camera call him a thoroughbred.

Not sure how it will change in the future, they are geared more for retail customers that come in and play a little bit. I'll always be honest with my answers, there are definitely platinum players with hosts. The reason for that is although you are a lower tier, you might have a higher value. Value and tier status do not correlate. Total Rewards is a loyalty program, which doesn't always translate to value. I have a platinum guest that is only that because he only comes out once a year, but will get almost to diamond but isn't really playing for tier status. Sounds like you are a similar situation.

    I've been doing about 3 trips a year, two slots-focused trips and one WSOP-focused trip in June. I'm not here to game the system but at the same time, I am a "budgeting" player which is what keeps it from being "more than I can afford." If I have a good idea my RFB will be comped if I spend that extra $200 that I put aside for expenses, then yes...I can spend that $200 towards gaming and eat all my meals at a CET property where I can charge to my room.

    I'm a planner, so the questions I ask have that focus.

    Sometimes the value I bring confuses me. I don't consider myself a high roller, but my budget for a trip will generally be in the $1K-$2K range. Yet I get offers now for "come this weekend, get a voucher for a cruise." It's confusing to me.

    You said host vs. inside sales executive. Maybe I have the latter, I do not know how to tell.

    Hi there!


    I have a question for you:

    So my husband and I used to be pretty loyal to the Showboat, in Atlantic City, which closed. We’re diamond at 44K

    We generally go to Atlantic City one or two times a month

    As far as value goes, I don’t know whether you’re assessing coin in, or total dollars played in a “play period”

    Coin in - we average about $500-600 per trip
    He spends some time at roulette; I almost exclusively play slot machines, in varying dollar amounts. (I vacillate between different kinds of games, depending on where I’m getting more play time for my dollar)

    When the Showboat first closed, we stayed at a few different properties here and there and then we were given, what seemed like the red carpet treatment at Caesars; a beautiful suite!

    We get room upgrades every time we pay and they’ve been generous with our comp’ed rooms as well… so I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining… but why is it that the best free play offers we get are NOT from Caesars?

    Caesars’ sends us $5.00 free play offers, and Bally’s sends us literally ten times as much

    I’m not getting it.

    Also, are we considered to be “assigned” to any particular casino based on anything?
    I was wondering if Bally’s has claimed us since the closing of the Showboat.
    Our host-ess is in Vegas at Caesars and she doesn’t seem to be very responsive to these types of questions, just tells us that if we come to Caesars’ in Vegas she can make sure that we’re very well taken care of

    (we won’t be making a Vegas trip this year, and we missed last year too, we used to do one trip a year for a while)

    How can I tell the difference? I have a "Host" in Las Vegas who makes my reservations all over the country. Each year at this time (just came in Sat. mail) I get the "Thank you from your Las Vegas Regional Player Development Team". There are 12 people in this team (pretty pics of each one) and my "Host" is obviously on the paper.

    Is she a "Host" or an "Inside sales executive"?

    I do have another question - more of a minor and practical manner.

    CET has a "Code Green" policy, yet I probably get no less than 10 and up to 20 pieces of mail each month from CET with offers. I'm wondering the best way to opt out of these being mailed. (Not the offers themselves... except for Laughlin, because... who cares about Laughlin?)

    Outside your realm as a host, so certainly if you choose not to answer I understand.

    They do have Code Green. Easiest way to get more green is to sign in at totalrewards.com. Once you sign in, there's a profile link on the left. You can see what your preferences are set to there. If it's not email, you can update it to email from snail mail. Hopefully this helps. They can also change your preference at the Total rewards desk in the casino.
