The Secret to Getting Comps in Las Vegas

Don’t you hate it when you’re waiting in the two hour long dinner buffet line at the Bellagio and some so called “VIP” guest strolls right in? I used to hate it as well, until I was the VIP that didn’t have to wait in line or pay for my food.

So how did I manage to get comped? The key is to join the casino’s players club. Every casino has a different players club program, so be sure to stop by their information desk and ask what they have to offer. After you’ve found the casino you enjoy playing and staying at, stick with it. For Tami and I, we absolutely love the Venetian. It’s a beautiful casino with a nice shopping mall and it’s just a short walk to our other favorites; Bellagio, Caesars Palace and Wynn. Not to mention, the Venetian is home to the Tao, one of the most exclusive night clubs in Vegas, and boy do we love to party!

After you’ve received your players card, be sure to use it every time you’re at the tables or slots. Using the players card gives you a “rating” as the casino tracks the amount of money you’re spending. As a basic rule, the more money you spend, the better the comps get. Tami usually plays a couple hundred at most in slots, and I’m usually at the crap tables with no more than a thousand bucks. Even as light gamblers, Venetian Players Club has given us everything from comped spa treatments and show tickets, to buffets and hotel suites.

In fact, they just sent us a free weekend stay for October and November, and you best bet that we’ll be out here having a crazy fun time in Sin City. So next time you’re in Vegas, don’t be the chump waiting in line or paying for your stay. Get your players club card, and start being a VIP!
