I have only earned comp points at three places, Indian Casinos in Oregon, the Atlantis in Reno, and CET properties in Vegas. Comp points earned at Indian Casinos are terrible. I am happy if I get a free buffet out of 8 t0 10 hours of play.
Don't really remember how it worked at CET properties, but I did not seem to earn a lot, although I typically would have less play through there compared to Reno and Indian Casinos since there is much more to do than gamble.
At the Atlantis, I am very happy with the points I receive. According to their records, I usually run around $ 700 an hour in play through. For a few hours this trip, I was maximum betting at 2.50 and 5.00 a spin on Monday morning, and it was a 4x comp points day. The end result was I ended up with more than $400.00 of comp points to use.
Here are my questions:
How does that seem to compare with other points you have earned at other properties? Do most casinos do 2x, 3X and 4x days? At the Atlantis, you cannot convert the comp points to free play, must be used for rooms, meals, gift shop, or spa, hair salon. Is that normal?
What I like about this is that, given I am normally comped for three nights when I go to the Atlantis, and I can use comp points for all my meals and misc. spending, and I drive, it is for all practical purposes, a free trip. If I can keep my slot losses under $ 1,000, it is about the same as a four day vacation to a nice hotel would cost.
I would love to hear how some of you very experienced slot fanatics would rate the points I get at Atlantis.
