How To Get Freebies in Vegas

Updated on July 26, 2015

It is possible to get many freebies in Vegas without gambling too much. Some of you may think that you might have to stay at those slots or stand by the craps table for hours and hours just to get a free room or buffet passes. That is not necessarily true.

I actually advice not to play for so long as it could only lead to being broke. It would be similar to paying $500 for buffet passes at Excalibur for two! Not a very smart thing to do.

Let's start with the little comps first. Comps is short for "complimentary" or at least that's how I see it. These are things that the Casinos give for "free" to compensate or to keep your business. We'll make our way to the free rooms and shows later.

The Players Club

If your sole purpose in Vegas is to gamble then you would want to sign up for the casino's player's club. If you're going to lose or win at the slots and the tables, you might as well get comped for it.

You don't have to be a gambler to sign-up. You could be a casual "player" and still get comped. If you don't get the thrill out of the games and would only like to try to have a few drinks at the casino floor, sign up for the player's club because it might get you some "free play."

Free Play

Some casinos would give you a $5 to $100 worth of free play. Treasure Island will give you a $5 free play just by signing up and will send you to a "wheel" to spin for more free play. Usually it would give you another $5. Other casinos will offer similar deals to try to keep you as a player. Remember, people love to belong in clubs! Last year, I won $50 at T.I using free play credits and a dollar of my own! I cashed out right away!


If the casino does not give you some free play credits, they would sometimes give you some free merchandise when you sign up. It could be a free t-shirt, pen, drink, mug, picture frame, key chains, and etc.

Food, Shows, and Rooms

How to get free rooms in Vegas? Honestly, it can be more difficult to get free rooms and shows but not impossible. It is easier to get comped for drinks or dining credit at buffets or sit-down restaurants.

If you have been playing the slots for an hour or two whether you've won or lost, you should have been getting points for playing. Once you decide to stop playing, walk towards the player's club desk or to a casino host and ask if you are eligible for any comps. Some casinos have a "menu" where you can "buy" things with your comp points. Some just ask for your card or talk to you and give you some comps. It could be free buffet passes, dining credit, spa discounts, and etc. This also applies to complimentary rooms and shows.

They are most likely to offer complimentary rooms to high-rollers. When you ask during the weekdays or off-season, they are more likely to offer rooms and show tickets to you!

Whenever you sign up for a player's club card, be sure to give them your e-mail address and your home address. Many hotels will send offers and sometimes free rooms by mail! It's not entirely unusual for them to send you complimentary rooms even if you know that you're not a big gambler yourself! Vegas has its off-season too and it will try to attract as many people as they can to increase business.

My tips:

  1. Always sign up for the player's club.
  2. Give them a destination to send their offers.
  3. Ask pit bosses and the player's club desk for comps.
  4. Do not gamble your whole bank just for a free buffet pass!
