As a writer who spends a lot of time focusing on writing articles that help other people improve their Las Vegas trips, and improve their casinos trips, I am commonly asked questions from readers. One reader recently asked about how to ask for comps at a casino. What would surprise most people, is that it is easier than you think.
Don’t Be Embarrassed
The first thing that you need to know about how to ask for comps at a casino is that you should never be scared to do so. There are hundreds of people that I have seen over the years timidly asking for comps at a casino. This has always made me feel that these people are worried that they are going to be kicked out of a casino for daring to ask if they can have a comp.
In actuality, dealers, pit bosses, and other casino workers know that you have comps on the mind. They all learned very quickly that there is nothing wrong with asking for comps. They know that there is very little way that you will know if you are up for a comp if you do not ask for a comp from the casino. Never be embarrassed to ask.
Know Who To Ask
If you want to ask for comps at a casino, you need to know who it is to ask. Pit bosses, front desk clerks supervisors, the concierge desk, and casino hosts are the ones that are going to award comps, so they are usually the best ones to ask. If you ask anyone else in the casino, chances are that they are going to refer you to one of the people that can give the comps.
Know When To Ask
If you are going to ask for comps at a casino, make sure that you at least have some kind of history playing. If you are a regular player at the casino, there might be comps left over from your last visit. If you have been playing at that casino for a few days, you might have racked up enough points for a comp. Do not worry about asking for comps if you have just gotten to the casino, and not played any games yet.
How To Ask
When talking about how to ask for comps at a casino, you should never be rude when asking. No matter how much you think that you deserve the comp, the workers at a casino have to deal with enough ornery people on a daily basis. Don’t be another one.
You should actually, “ask,” for the comps. You should form your request in the form of a question like, “Have I qualified for any comps yet,” “I was wondering what I would have to do to qualify for show tickets for tonight,” or, “I am getting hungry, has my play qualified me for a meal discount yet?” By asking in these ways, you are coming off as a polite player, and could get you bumped slightly for a better comp, or in the least, you will learn exactly what you need to do to get what you want.
Keep these ideas in mind if you are going to ask for comps in a casino. Remember to not be embarrassed. Remember how to ask. Remember when to ask. Remember to be polite. Chances are good that if you follow these rules, the comps will follow quickly.
