Carrie's Cruise Hit

Post by Lucky Larry »

Carrie and Doug took one of her daughter's family and the grandkids on a Bahamas Cruise a month ago. Since she cruises frequently and has been top winner on the cruise, the cruise lines love her casino play so she frequently pays nothing and is given huge nightly free play. Second night out she hit the beauty which helped out for the rest of the cruise. Congratulations Carrie! :up:

One of the things Sweet C and I are most proud of is how Carrie and Doug have learned to enjoy life. A couple lessons that I will share. One of the things I've learned in life is to learn everything you can about the "system" and utilize it to "your" advantage. If the official casino day starts at 4:00 a.m. don't play after that unless you are going to play later that day. This keeps you Daily Average up helping comps and free play. (Casinos won't usually tell you when the time is but techs and pay attendants might. I threatened several times to quit play in front of a floor supervisor if they can't/won't give me the information.) Second, if you don't ask...you probably won't get it and finally "treat your everyone with dignity and courtesy."

Carrie has learned to leverage both the casino and cruise systems to their advantage. Carrie managed her casino play to get max comps and when she wanted something she learned to ask her host. She however, didn't abuse the requests. Slow and easy and only when necessary. She then utilized her casino level comped cruise offers to maximum advantage to become a high frequency cruiser and thus a cruise VIP. This led to frequent free cruise offers and huge cruise casino comps. Using this approach at multiple casinos corporations has provided them with free cruises, paid flights to casinos in Nevada, and now casino properties from the same company working together. A flight out with a two-night stay at one property, a limo transfer to the sister casino, and a two-night stay at the other Vegas property with both hosts agreeing to combine their free play offers for double the money every night. Not bad for a blue collar couple. We're so happy and proud of you Carrie. :heart:

Great information. I agree with your philosophy. I try and subscribe to my own version. The highest and lowest people on the totem pole as to wealth and status I try and treat equally with dignity, respect, and courtesy. I find it usually is returned to you in leaps and bounds. The few exceptions I have a phantom list for taken after one of my Sci -Fi Novels I never finished……To be vaporized as time permits. 😊.
