Default Question about Hosts

I have dealt with many Hosts during the last year and a lot of the time I just go up to the Host desk or into the Office and just talk to whoever is working there.

But since Hosts make a percentage of their players actual or theoretical loss, when does a Host get "assigned" to you? And at this point will no other host at that property work with you except him/her?

Default depends

Each casino probably has its own host guidelines.

If throwing money around you can get approached by one or ask for one.

When you get assigned one, they see to you unless there off work, then another can act for them.

Can probably change hosts if u wish, may be some hurt feelings or bad blood.

I know HOW to find the hosts, I'm just asking at what point do they start making $$ from your play? Is it the first time they comp you something?

When I first starting dealing with hosts a year ago I talked to a host at the Palazzo and next time I showed up I went to talk to a different host and she said "Oh, actually I can't help you. You have to talk to your host." and I was like wtf I have a specific host?

Then that host turned out to be a straight a**hole so I went up to the host desk and asked to be re-assigned which was no problem.

I only recently found out I have "a host" at my usual haunt, never knew I had been assigned one.

But what's really weird is my host works day shift, and I'm rarely there during her working hours. What sense does that make.

Are you still expecting casino decisions to make sense?

Don't know the answer to your question exactly and i'm sure it vary from place to place, but you might want to grab one of the players club brochures that lays out all of the benefits for each tier level. A couple of my local places will call out "personal executive casino host" for the top 1 or 2 players club tiers.

Seriously? Are you still holding out hope of getting a good meal there too?

Dye I cant answer your question. But in years past if i knew i was going to be at a joint for a while..........i always made it a point to find out who is the highest ranking Host. Hosts have huge huge power in a decent casino.
There is a pecking order.............Try to get one of the top 3 guys or gals, they have the biggest ego's and that can be used to your advantage.
Do Host's actually make money off of you? Like a percentage of your action? I'm not so sure that is the norm? I could be wrong...
