Las Vegas Comps and Online Comps


Las Vegas comps or casino bonus extras from an online casino are the best way to get free rewards just for playing. A lot of players inside land based casinos like those in Las Vegas will spend thousands and thousands of dollars not realizing that the casinos want their business so much that they will spend money just to keep them coming back. The online casinos are the same way. Most will offer a 100% or more sign up bonus to get you in and based on your play, will reward you with deposit bonuses in addition to other incentives just to keep you coming back there. Las Vegas casino comps can get you free rooms, show tickets, and fine dining at world-class restaurants. Plus, even cash to gamble with!

So what is the secret? It is very simple to get casino comps, just sign up for a players card in a land based casino or a players rewards program with the online casinos. In Las Vegas they have the sign up desks inside of their casinos. Generally, it is the line of people looking like they are trying to get on a ride at Disneyland. So to avoid the lines, you should go early in the morning or if you will be going to Las Vegas soon, search for the casino that you will be staying at over the Internet. More and more land based casinos are allowing you to sign up for their players card program online, so take advantage of it. The cards will be waiting there when you arrive! Signing up for a players card is a good idea to do in any casino anywhere, so don't wait for the Vegas trip. Almost all of the newer casinos on Indian reservations, riverboats and other areas are managed by former Las Vegas executives who know what loyalty means to the bottom line, so you can expect to have players card programs available wherever you go.

The players card is becoming more important as technology continues to advance. Signing up with one program can allow you to gain rewards at a number of casinos instead of just one. At some casinos, technological advancements makes it possible to withdraw the cash earned on your account using a pin number at self-serve kiosks that are on the casino floor. Wagering bonuses earned for slots are also being placed on your card to be used at slot machines in the casinos. And when you are at home, you can use your card number to enter events online with casinos and win more comps and free goodies. So once you get a card, make sure you keep up with it! (In the event that you do lose it, the casino will make a new one for you easily.)

Now for online casinos or poker rooms, their bonuses are mostly in the form of bonuses deposits, "player point programs" or free entries to tournaments for big money. This is a great benefit for gamblers as it gives more opportunities to win! Records are kept of how often and how much you gamble with them. And periodically, they will let you know what you have qualified for. For example, poker players can use "player points" to enter major online poker tournaments instead of having to pay entry fees. Chris Moneymaker proved playing poker can make millions in 2003 and Gregory Paul Raymer did it again in 2004 with both winning World Series of Poker championships. Both signed up with a major online poker room and ended up becoming millionaires! Imagine receiving big money from a tournament and knowing that you never paid one dime in entry fees! Giving the player "points", is one of the ways that online poker rooms comp their players.

From this point on you should start getting more from your gambling by following these ideas. Print up this page and keep it with you on your next trip as a reminder. Good luck!
