    I use an independent (junket) host when I go to Atlantic City (CET). My charges are comped on the back end, but the independent host has to contact a host on property to clear the charges. You should just inquire with the host to confirm.

    **The reason that I use an independent host for AC is that an on property host cannot book a junket with chartered flight since flights are offered through national marketing. I get much more with my on property host in Vegas.

    Same here. I use an independent host for properties outside of Vegas. They can get the comped airfare and junkets that the onsite host cant get. At the end of the trip, We just check with the host on duty to clear charges before we leave. Easy Peasy.

    I was wondering why I get all the free flight offers for two to Reno, Tahoe, and AC in the mail and to my email. It's a really good deal. I don't have a host at CET as I really never play there. Good to know.

    I get offers for flight/hotel to Reno, Tahoe and Laughlin and I've never been there. Those Total Reward flights are a National Marketing program. They are looking to bring in players. I know people who go to AC on those junkets who are very small players. If they don't meet the requirement, there is a cost for the junket.

    I took my mom on one to AC last year. I figured it's free, why not? Lol When I went to checkout at the desk I asked if I had anything to remove my charges and she said,"Yes, you do!" Like she was surprised and at first was gonna roll her eyes. Lol They took off everything. I've never used it since though, but thought about taking her to Tahoe sometime.

    I used your comped for a quick last minute trip to Mohegan sun, one of my local casinos.
    I'd never been there before and I called to talk to a host at the casino and they wouldn't let me talk to one! They said that if I was at the level of play where I needed a host they would contact me after I've played there.
    Even after that I still wanted to stay here because it was near
    An event I had to attend that weekend.
    I called your comped as I was driving down for the first time and they were amazing! The verified my play level and were able to get me a two bedroom suite and everything comped by the end of it.
    While I was there playing a host
    Ended up coming up to me and giving me there card and I laughed and handed It back. I was so offended that they wouldn't even talk to me after
    Telling them what kind of front money I was bringing and my average bet...
