Gambling Comps 101 or The Ask Game
I don't know who did it or when it happened, but someone shortened the word complimentary to comp and made it an industry standard.
In casino language, comps are cash or gifts (freebies) that the casinos give to their customers as a reward for gambling with them. It promotes good will and also entices players to be loyalty to the establishment. In order to get comps from the casinos, you must play the ask game.
Most players think that comps are only for the guest who spend big bucks at the casinos and therefore don't ask for them.
This is wrong. There are many different comps given out by the casinos and it depends on how much money you play which comp you might get.
Casino properties give away everything from free candles to promotions that offer free rooms and food.
