    I use to keep just track of win & losses every session , but now I add in comps, diamond lounge meals & drinks, free rooms, free slot play & any other comp. The win & losses are important, but I started this year with a new twist. Free room $50. Diamond lounge food & drinks $150 a person per visit. Now I make sure I gamble with more strategy of what I lose & what Im getting from the casino. I know the money is important, but if I lose per say $300 on a 4 day trip comped at AC is it really a loss?? In my eyes I say no way. I talk to my close friends who play with me & they agree. What do you think?? How do you count comps?? I know all the comps are not in your win & loss statement, but depend on your play they add up to saving you money

    That's a logical way to look at it but most decent hotels have at least a free continental breakfast that is better than anything I've ever seen in a diamond lounge. I'd value Ceasars at $5 and every other one I've been in $0. Part of the reason we don't care for the diamond lounges is we're meat and potatoes eaters and neither of us drink.

    This is Barney,

    The LID tracks all win and losses at casino road trips. Free room not counted but food at buffet or restaurant is because it saves time and money from eating at home. Travel costs such as the gasoline is included as expense as well as my casino dates payments and any doctor and penicillin shots if needed when getting back to farm. Any road kill picked up is added to win side of the column.


    Thank you very much

    I kept strong records for 5 years....the result was I was down gambling.......I was ahead if you figured in comps............but strictly gambling, I was down.

    For the last five years I would say I am down in poker(which I stopped), down at roulette/casino tables games. But for craps I’m about even or a bit up. Tho I had two hard streaks recently, I cashed a lot in the last 3 years. Tho I spent a lot out of it. Didn’t respect the « stack winnings seperately ».

    Ikeep track of most things including the average roll i have at different casino's
    on my road trips. Over the past three years i have cut down the amount of time
    i play poker, increased the amount of time i play blackjack and my craps is about
    the same.

    the only real change was this year when i went on my trip i followed you a lot so my
    food bill went up because there was very little road kill left.

    We always keep all our change to pay for the meals on the road but ran short
    this year so we now are taking the change from our kids and grand kids when
    they visit.

    This should be enough just in case we are behind you again.

    I don't like doin this kind of stuff, but as long as barney is
    picking up most of the road kill, my cost of food goes up
    and on a 20 day trip, even once a year....well it adds up.

    the worse thing is some of these casino's have a $3 minimum
    so every dime i can save on food is another number i can bet on. If
    I don't place more than one bet i wont get any comps.
