Casinos use various methods to distribute comps to their patrons, most require the player to sign-up for a casino players card. The players card looks like a credit card, and often functions in the casino like a credit card. Often if you are a first time guest at a casino’s hotel, they will have a player’s card waiting for you when you check-in the hotel. If you are not a guest at the casino’s hotel or if the hotel did not make you a player’s card go to the player’s club desk and have them make you a card. It’s as simple as handing your driver’s license to the person at the club desk and having them type your name and home address into the casino’s computers. Some casinos have machines that simply scan the information on your driver’s license into the casinos database.  Casinos often give new enrollees special coupons or other offers when they initially sign-up for their    players cards. These can be valuable, considering you haven’t even given the casino any play, yet..

Once you have your casino player’s card it is important to use the card while you gambling. This entails inserting the card into the card reader if you are playing a slot machine, or presenting it to the dealer or pit boss if you are playing a table game. The dealer is the person actually dealing the cards or running the game if you are playing roulette, while the pit boss is the dealer’s supervisor and oversees several table games in a given part of the casino. Once you have inserted your card into the slot machine or presented your card to the dealer, your play is now being “tracked”, which means you are now earning comps.

A comp stands for complementary, and it consists of all the items and services a casino gives a player to encourage and reward their patronage. Comps can range from the free drinks that Las Vegas casinos give their patrons while they are gambling to lavish suites and luxury automobiles, and almost anything in between.

Some comps are really special courtesies that are extended to the casino’s better players, such as the ability to check-in to your hotel room when you arrive at the hotel, and not having to wait to the designated check-in time. Late room check-outs are rarely given to someone that is not a rated player, but are commonly given to good players.

Once you start moving up the comp latter higher value comps are offered to customers. The meal comps usually start with a buffet comp, the next level would be a coffee-shop restaurant, then a mid range restaurant and finally the casinos top gourmet restaurants. Even when you reach the gourmet level, there are ranges of how much the casino will grant in a comp, a top level player will have the entire wine list comped, others will need to show more restraint in their wine selection.

A similar comp latter is often in play for show tickets. Many casinos will have several different shows playing in the same casino, some are more expensive, and hence more difficult to get comped. It also matters whether the show is produced by the casino themselves or the theater is rented out to a third party, in which case it is usually more difficult to get the tickets comped. Some shows are completely free to everyone, and are used to draw customers to a casino.
