Casino offers are determined in part by the game played and the casino’s expected winnings based on the game and your bet size. So what happens when you play a different game?

Will playing in the poker room with my players card lower my slot based offers, since poker generally accumulates tier credits much less than say a $7-$10 spin?


The slower earning of tier credits is certainly an indication that the casino is not earning money as quickly off your poker play vs. your slot spins. And if you replace higher profit slot spins with lower profit poker, you could expect that your offers will go down.

But if you are doing both, not using your card for part of your play means the casino isn’t seeing all of your activity, and that extra play on poker on top of slots could bump your offers a bit since they see more time on property and more wagers being placed.

Many poker players will also play for much longer stretches of time, so even though the earnings may be lower, seeing that, slots, spend on property, etc. can provide a more well-rounded picture of someone who’s spending money on property all day. 

The exact formula a casino looks to for comps can vary, but longer time on property is generally considered a positive as it’s expected they’ll make more on you throughout the day vs. if you were there for just an hour or two.

So it really depends on the specifics, but if you’re doing this play on top of slots, it’s always best to record all your play so the totality of your gambling is rated and baked into comps. But if it’s replacing slot play on occasion, there is a reasonable question about whether it’s smart to be rated on play that would drag your average down.
