    At what level do you get a host? I am 20K points away from Platinum with Mlife after being Gold for a year. Was in Vegas a week or so ago and racked up 150K points in 6 days. I know not a high roller by any means, just seems like having a true Host would make things easier for booking. I think maybe my issues is I usually stay at Vdara and play in Aria, Park MGM, Bellagio, and Mirage so my money is kinda spread out but you would think it would not matter. Also my account is linked with my wife, our tier credits accumulate but how much we wager is kept apart.

    It depends more on your coin in and what games you are playing. Take a look at the win/loss statement for your account.

    What is a decent coin in number for say 5 days of play? This number was in the 40K range between my wife and I. Majority was at Aria with Mirage in 2nd.
    Thank you both for your input!

    What games are you playing?

    Downtown, $10K a day will get you a host, limo, suite, and food (except may Nugget, but you'd still get pretty good comps there).

    I don't have a handle on what you need on the strip for slot play for RFB, but suffice it to say it's bound to be more.

    Back to your original question, I think you should be able to get a host with that play.

    Divide your play by nights stayed.

    $8k a night on slots is probably host-worthy at Aria, maybe borderline.

    If you split it equally among two accounts it may not show up on a host's radar.

    If you both get offers you think are fair, and don't need anything special, having a host may not make things easier for you.

    Pretty much any slot, from lighting link, to lock it link, buffalo etc. to 3 reel higher denom from $5-25 not any table games.

    Yeah not real worried about it, but heard about it before and was wondering if its something we should have. I had heard if you wanted something like concert tickets night of they were the best bet to get them. Maybe next time I am there I will request to speak with a host and see what happens. I stay pretty happy with the offers they give us. I also have a youtube channel and was hoping maybe a host could get me permission to video my play.

    Definitely - the night before you check out, when you are done playing, go to the slot club booth / hosts office and ask to speak to a host. Ask them to take a look at your play and see if there is anything they can take off the bill.

    You can shmooze them up about your channel etc.

    Chances are the host you speak to will fork over a business card and voila - you have a host.

    Why do I say go the night before? Because on check out morning there might not be a host around, or there might be and they might not get anything off your bill before you leave the property. Once you're out the door it's pretty hard to deal with any issue that may arise. It's no fun trying to get ahold of someone to fix the bill per whatever the host said they would do once you're on the road, or headed to another property.

    Doing it the night before, you have options.

    Best thing about a host is the ease of reservations. I can just email or text them and say I want to come on whatever dates and it’s all set. Don’t need to dig up offer codes, mailers, and make calls only to find out my offer isn’t good that date, etc

    It’s not worth playing more to get one but it is nice to have. Most of mine have come from talking to whoever was on duty just to see if they could comp any charges and they then give me their card after looking at my play, even if they can’t comp off anything they usually still offer their services for future reservations.

    I would think you should have a host because your play is not far off ours. We stay at Bellagio every time. If you get a host you like, hang on to them. I've had some that didn't help with anything nor care about us at all.
