    I have not used it myself. I once worked with a freelance host thru... I think it was Valet Noir or something and it started okay but ended up being a disaster in the long run. My luck with hosts is awful in general (except for Cosmo) so there's that.

    Don't know anyone with experience with that group but there is several independent casino host companies like it who are good.

    I used a 3rd party host on my lake tahoe trip and worked out good


    I also used a 3,rd party on my atlantis trip in April

    I tried using them for a trip to CT. However they dropped the ball with getting back to me. Instead of trying to chase them, I reminded myself that I avoid Indian casinos. So I booked a trip to vegas instead.

    I actually just booked a 3 night trip through them for a casino in the Palm Springs area for the end of Aug. I wanted to try them out and since my parents live there I figure it's not a huge deal if they mess up the reservation lol! I'll be sure to post back after I go and let you know if it worked okay :)

    I've worked with Craig on getting me to properties where I have no play outside of CET, including Cosmo and casinos on Aruba and other locales outside of LV. He's a stand up guy. No hesitation in recommending him for your casino host services.

    I have used Craig and URComped.com for a trip at Mohegan Sun in CT. Everything was handed with white glove service, I highly recommend their service, Craig and his team are very responsive and negotiate the best possible comp package for your play. I have another trip planed with them for February at the Cosmo Las Vegas.

    Just in case you didn't know the VP for Cosmo is on this board and does offer match...you may want to contact him to see if he can get you a better offer. His name is Kevin Sweet. The thread is called greetings from the Cosmopolitan...forgot to mention they seem to treat Vegas Fanatic members extremely well from my experience.

    Hi Crystal! Thank you for the heads up, I appreciate it. I am a tables game player only, specifically craps and Craig and Jim at URComped were able to get me exactly what I wanted. I enjoy keeping a relationship with one host in order to have them book all my trips regardless of location. I am looking forward to the Cosmo and will report back how it goes in February.

    When I am there I will introduce myself to Kevin as it is alway good to know another person on property. URComped has set me up with a host on property to manage the day-to-day oversight while I am there.

    I do think it is great that Kevin from Cosmo is offering matching of offers, to me that displays great service and aggressiveness to attain new players.

    Thank you,

    Mr. Elite

    So for the folks that have used URComped how open have they been about earned theo, targets, and expected play?
    My experience with third party hosts are they are not always transparent to minimize comp return vs earned. In other words, you get a lot of "we will see based on your play" vs experience of knowing if I earn XX TC and average XX coin in per day I can expect this in comps.

    I find the interactions with some hosts to be a lot like buying a car, your trying to negotiate the best deal for your self while the sales person is trying to maximize commission. This causes an adversarial relationship where the sales man promises the moon and blames bad old management when he can't deliver the deal. I much prefer the set price approach, where I say I am going to play this much for this many hours what can you offer me.

    The other sucky part of some casino offerings is places who downgrade your comps if you are a cash winner. Meaning back end comps are reduced if you take their money out the door above a certain threshold.

    For me it was like they were setting up a front end comp like backend. As long as you played x for y hours your room will be covered. However they (casino) reserves the right to charge you if your play isn't met. Which happens sometimes if you are running bad. That was a huge turn off. I could do that myself.

    Since then I'll just reach out to host directly and work out my own deal. Seems to work removing the middle man. You can get better comps because the casino won't have to pay commission to a 3rd party on top of your comps which means better comps.

    Correct, I am struggling to see the value add, outside of access to rooms or properties you would not normally get to without an established relationship. It still seem pretty risk based for all parties concerned.

    I would rather pay for a room then deal with the headaches this would seem to offer. Can always get things taken care of on back end.

    Hello Funkhouser,

    My experience with Craig and Jim at URComped has been nothing but professional and exceptional. Craig and Jim at URComped will negotiate the best possible comp package based upon your play and will also assist you with any other arrangements needed for a trip. I have always felt that they are working on my behalf and that they are in the business for the long run and not just for the short term. This is important to me because I like to have one host for almost all destinations that I will travel to because then it is one relationship and not several.

    In regards to transparency, they have been very transparent with me regarding the play necessary for the comps they have setup for me, as well as being able to review my earned theo after a trip.

    The have been nothing but helpful and are a great way to book casino vacations. I hope this has been helpful for you.

    Sincerely,

    Mr_Elite

    I appreciate the feedback Mr. Elite. My bride and I have been interested in V/P for some time. I have reached out to them and have had them acknowledge my request. Fingers crossed.

    I used Urcomped for two cruises. They got me nearly comped cruises on Holland and MSC. I didn't play enough to get the free cruise certificate they award you on the ship . It's a lot of expected play on certain ships and its not your 90% Vegas payback percentages. Urcomped approved my wife for another cruise but reneged on it a day later after learning I didn't get a certificate.
