Is Club Grazie Making a Comeback?

June 16, 2011 at 6:05 PM | by | Comments (6)

We were walking through Palazzo recently and noticed a few things that were different, including a setup for a slot tournament.

Slot tournaments usually aren't geared to the most "highly rated players", so maybe the (Venetian and the Palazzo are both beginning to rethink their Club Grazie comp policy and marketing to their medium rollers again.

Last month, Las Vegas Sands reported a 47% drop in first quarter revenue from their casino so bringing back slot tournaments could also be a reaction to the decreased revenue.

We like Palazzo and visit fairly often but this was the first time this year that we've seen a slot tournament set up. We've yet to see another slot tournament offer but, almost daily, we receive offers to pay for rooms with minimal dining discounts. (While we really appreciate 10% off of a beer with our $129 room--plus $17 resort fee--, the deals don't seem to be worth it for us to bring our gambling dollars).

We're happy that there's a lot of competition in Vegas and we can usually shop around and find a good deal or maybe even a free suite!

Still, we do enjoy those slot tournaments no matter how mindless they are. Maybe we're next on the Grazie slot tournament list.

Club Grazie

I used to love there comp suites deal--I would drop $3,000 a visit on slots and blackjack, but now I don't even visit.  You will find me at Wynn or Mandalay Bay...

A matter of time

There's a reason that model of only comping the biggest players doesn't exist anywhere else, because it doesn't work.

@TommyC

I hear ya. I only play the nickle 3 play there if I'm early and waiting for people. I used to have similar bankroll for them on a weekend trip. If they don't want it cool. Like you, I can go somewhere that does want it.

@binciong

You're probably right here. Interesting to see them speak so highly of the gamblers 3 quarters ago, then snub them 2 quarters ago and, maybe, come back - if that's the case.

corner cutting

This corner cutting that they implemented is out of control.  Since the last 2 years, I have stayed here 5 times.  Each time, the room is in disrepair meaning something is wrong with it.  There doesn't seem to be any quality control.  I can't even get a book of matches.

I was in Vegas this week and I took my funds to the Encore and had a blast.  While booking my room at the Encore, the person told me the hotel was "fully committed" on 6/23 & 6/24.

Unlike this place, Steve Wynn knows that a high occupancy rate = more potential dollars than can flow into the casino.

How much does LVS earn with an empty room?  Zero, nada, zilch.

What if you discount the room and bring people from your Club Grazie base?  You inspire more loyalty and bring in more dollars coming into your casino.

What if you give away the room that was going to be empty anyway?  You still earn money.

The trick is to bring them in.  Just getting a customer into your casino is an advantage for the house.

Trickle down effect.  If you don't want my business, Wynn and MGM Grand want it.  So does Harrahs.

Stop acting like you are the only game in town.  Bellagio is better than you and they were packed this week.

Another Great Computer Comp Program

Another program well worth your efforts is offered by (CET) aka. Bally's, Caesars, Harrahs, Flamingo, Paris, Planet Hollywood, Quad, and Rio! These comps are spent like cash from a players card, which is used like a debit card, for rooms, food, shows, and even Casino free play, A person can even fund entry into the WSOP! My last trip I redeemed $140! I'm collecting for my 2014 vacation, I'm up to $80 in 3 months!

To start, first go to> bit.ly/YuuhlV
once there get a TR players card.
(If you already have a TR card skip this)

Next go to Vegas Rewards facebook page, www.facebook.com/groups/vegasrewards
