Can a Casino Host Give Free Play?

It is certainly within the toolkit that many hosts work that they can grant free play. It’s worth noting though the purpose of a casino host, and what they’re able to work with.

Casino hosts are designed to be a more specific point of contact for players of a certain level, maintaining a more personal relationship with the goal of maximizing the benefits for both sides. 

While a casino host works for the casino, and is therefore working to make the casino money, they are also working to keep players happy. When they can strike that balance, everyone wins – the casino gets their players in as often as they can, and the player gets the perks they want to have.

Have you ever had a casino host?

Hosts may be able to invite players to events that they would be otherwise locked out, provide them access to room types that may not always be available to other players, get them dinner reservations to a popular spot, and so on. Part of a host’s value to players can be access.

Most hosts can’t often comp a player above their level, however, so they aren’t going to give free play to just anyone for any reason. If a player is receiving offers that are about right for their normal level of play, a host is unlikely to necessarily extend more unless something unusual happens, like a bad run on the casino floor far worse than would be expected for a given bet level.

Hosts may have some discretionary budget; if they think dangling a carrot will get extra play out of a player, they may use it for those purposes. Sometimes they can match another casino’s offer to try to woo someone over to their side and spend that money there instead.

So yes, a casino host does have it in their options to give out free play. And really, if you want to see if it’s possible, you can always ask. The worst thing they can say is no, but if they like what they see, perhaps they’ll give you a business card and set you on a path to a more personal relationship with your local casino. But if they say no, no hard feelings – they’re just doing their job.

      Thanis Jacs – while not every player will qualify for a host, many will if they contact a host – some players don’t realize that they qualify for one!
