    1 Regarding the 4k comp dollars earned over the 8 hours of play, how is it dispersed in percentages for food, free play, gift shops, etc? Is the dispersion given out only on a monthly basis to be used at your discretion or are you limited to percentages to be used only, on a weekly or daily basis?

    2 That 4k comp dollars was it all earned on a combination of using multiple cards? Could you elaborate a little on this?

    3 Do hosts become a pain in the ass and frequently approach you when playing? The reason for the question is does a host come by and say hello and call you by the name of the card inserted?

    4 Am I assuming correctly that whoever's player's card is inserted in a machine it can be detected by casino floor staff or related to them from the eye above by computer?
    I missed this post for some reason.
    Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
    I only skimmed a few words of all those questions but I got the gist.

    The comp was huge as it would give you double comp and half cash back.
    I was putting in massive amount of coin in per hour.
    Cashing out the points when the club would open and using the Comp in various places.
    Buying Steak Dinners to go... 1000 dollar bottles of wine... etc etc.
    One day I lost 12k but had 5000 in comp and wanted a bunch of to go bottles of wine.
    I had to get the Casino Manager on Duty.
    They were telling me I had to open all the bottles and drink them in their establishment.
    I told him... Bullshit... You want me to catch Covid???
    Anyways... I finally won.
    This wasn't the issue but I think it started the fire.
    A week or so later I won over 150k on the machine.
    Sheer Variance or Luck if you prefer.
    After that it wasn't long that they changed the way you earn points/comp.
    They also changed the Full Pay Games to some ungodly amount of coin in to earn 1 point.
    I didn't think anything of it as I didn't go in the joint for weeks because I was waiting to see what the mailman was gonna bring me for Christmas.
    I got ZERO lol.

    Awhile later I ran into a 40 year Vegas Pro.
    He told me they changed the whole system because of my play.
    I don't know if that is true but he didn't know what I was doing so obviously people were talking.
    Anyways... I think that is enough information for you.

    I'm not sure I believe that.
    Rib Roast is very easy.
    You basically cook it for 2 to 4 hours depending on your cooking temperature.
    Pull it off when it reaches 120 degrees Internal and let it rest for 30 mins up to 2 hours if you can wait that long lol.
    Wrap it up in either plastic wrap or tinfoil or both if you like.
    Potatoes... Easy.
    Vegetable... Easy.
    You can do it if you wanted but I get it if you don't.
    Just saying it is pretty easy.

    You can find your own online with ease.

    First Picture Raw.
    Next Picture Rested and Cut down the Middle.
    Third Picture Plated with Mashed Potatoes and French Style Green Beans.
    Love the taste of those type of Green Beans.
    I whipped up some homemade gravy after taking the picture.
    Reminds me of my Vietnam Gook Killing Father and my Lowly Upbringing.
    Notice the Cheap Dalstrong Knife.
    It gets the job done but Fuck that 50 dollar garbage.
    The finished product looked great, but, not knowing much about cooking I would have never purchased the piece of meat that you showed in the first picture. The reason being the amount of visible fat showing, cholesterol and all. Apparently I am fussier. Regarding my questions thank you for answering question one.

    The other questions don't really matter.
    I mostly played on my card only.
    Local Player so Host don't really matter at that spot.
    Vegas is getting tighter in that regard.
    I play during Graveyard Hours almost always so you never get one of those... Hellos.
    That's why the Book is a Pain in my Ass because I sleep when these Hockey Games are going.
    In the last few years these clever bastards go back and watch the tape to see what player card you are using if they are trying to be cute.
    Maybe I should play Black Jack again and get 86d all over the place lol.
    I seen a bunch of people playing last night at about 16 different tables.
    No 6 foot distance.
    No Plastic Partitions.
    Just Masks but wow 4 players at each table.
    Corona is obviously over.

    Double Bonus actually.
    DDB is a Mother Fucker.
    I need a lot of extras added to the DDB game to get involved.
    For instance when the Plaza was paying Double Royals I played a bunch of DDB.
    5 and 6 thousand dollar royals are nice playing on quarters at 110% return but man the variance was brutal lol.
    Technically 4 sevens would of paid the same on either game but... DDB... man, I hate that game, even though we used to say it was the wave of the future lol.
    I've played some Full Pay Triple Double Bonus but I never liked that game either, even if it was the Full Pay Scales.
    A bit too Top Heavy for my taste even though the return is better than some of the goofy games I play these days.
    Different Circumstance though.

    I hate assuming here, but I thought the receiving comp part of it all was to be taken very seriously. In the fact, that the player needed to turn most of the noncash comps back into dollars. Unless I am missing something getting 1000 dollars bottles of wine would seem to me to be difficult to turn over for cash. If the player actually is drinking those expensive bottles of wine why the fuck is he playing video poker in the first place? Isn't it in most video poker situations the comps themselves that may make the game a positive expectation? And that the player always needs to keep a playing bank up to par, so as being the #1 priority?

    *Sigh*

    You got to eat right?
    You like to enjoy a really good bottle of wine, Louis Trey and Good Cigars right?
    You like to raid the Gift Shop sometimes don't you?
    All this stuff is factored in.
    If you are just factoring in dollar for dollar and see no value in other benefits this play would not be for you.
    Plus you are playing a game where variance could go either way.
    It's not so easy to find plays where you are at better than 99% return and you have the possibility to crack 25, 50 and 100k jackpots.
    Best to play it safe and stick to quarter FPDW or Vision Machines or Black Jack.
    We all have different spots and methods.

    "Plus you are playing a game where variance could go either way. "

    Exactly, you just made my point that maintaining a stable playing bankroll is of the utmost importance to most of us.
    I suppose we think differently.

    It's hard to explain if you never played high variance high limit VP or Slots.
    Certain VP games don't run like you would think.
    A lot of the movement is hours and hours of up 5k and down 5k.
    Sometimes Meters are broken or some things have glitches.
    Nothing Ventured... Nothing Ventured. (quote from let it ride)

    If you just want to nit it up and make a nice easy hourly you can do that.
    I prefer to Fire at many different situations.
    I'd rather do like MickeyCrimm and just pick and choose and wait for the right spot and make 300 dollars just about every time I walk in the Casino.
    Unfortunately I'm an Old Dog here and its difficult to learn new tricks.

    Even though jbjb claims anyone can hole card I tend to believe it is much more difficult than that.
    Let's not forget I am firing in the NHL like a madman with no earn on the backside.
    Perhaps I am just a Degenerate.
