What comps do people get for birthdays?

Just curious, i know it's probably said to people in casinos etc all the time, but as a Brit with no other picture ID cept for my passport at least I'll be able to prove it by waving it at people. I'll be in Vegas for my 39th birthday on March 25th, and I'm hoping someone takes pity on my last birthday before the big "Four Oh" and hurls freebies at me. Anyone got any tales of such things happening? I'm actually there from the 19 to 30th so I'll be fresh, unjetlaggified (that should be a real word) and ready to take on the world!

Pretty much nothing. The Boyd joints have given out a decent chunk of comp points in the past and I think 4Queens gave me a BOGO coupon for one of their restaurants.

Caesars gave me a plastic emperor token on a plastic chain when the guy at Total Rewards noticed it was my birthday when I stopped by to get a replacement card last year. I still have it as a treasured keepsake.

(OK, not really. I think I ditched it before I even got 20 feet away from the TR counter!)

Half the people in Las Vegas are celebrating a birthday, wedding, anniversary, etc etc. I wouldn't expect much fuss over a birthday.

We were at Luxor for my husband's birthday last November. The hotel didn't do anything, but he did get to spin the wheel at the MLife desk and got a few points added to his card. Not much, but better than nothing!!

At most, if you are eating at a nice restaurant you might get a free dessert.

Southpoint $7.50 in points after playing $1 in a slot. Swipe your card at the b-connected kiosk at Orleans or Good Coast for a surprise. Go to the Grazie desk at VP to see if there is a gift for your birthday. Last year Wynn gave dh $10 freeplay on his birthday.

I've gotten a few "happy birthday" wishes from casino employees. That's it. No one is going to "hurl freebies" at you just because it's your birthday.

You get comped by the resorts with an empty wallet or pocketbook. Oh wait; you do get to walk on the inside of their hollowed resort grounds & use their restrooms fully comped. Head out back to the dumpsters, all the leftover, disposed of food you can eat for free.
