These tricks are not fool-proof. They do not work every time, but they have worked for myself, and many other regulars and first-timers to Las Vegas. Since they usually do not cost you anything, they might be worth your time to try to get something free for not doing anything at all.
I have noticed in the past that many pretty ladies will be given comps for doing nothing more than flirting for a moment with one casino worker or another. While this usually will not work with the pit-bosses, this does often work with many of the lower-totem-pole workers. I have seen these workers ask for a comp for a pretty woman as a favor from their boss or pit-boss.
If you are staying in a suite, stop by some of the other casinos around yours and ask to take a look at the suites for the next time you stay in the area. There is a good chance that if you play your verbal cards right, you will end the tour with a comp. Make sure that you show the casino host your room key so that he or she can confirm that you are staying in a suite.
While you are being shown the suite, point out what you like about the suite over what you are currently staying in. Make sure that you also point out things about the casino that you like as well. Explain that you are planning a trip back to Las Vegas in the next few months so that your interest appears pressing.
More often than not, a casino host will do what he or she can to try to seal the deal for the casino. If the casino host does not offer a small comp, it is worth using tact and a round-about fashion to ask for a comp to help turn your eyes and wallet towards that casino.
Hotel Vault Users
I am a book collector. Most of the time when I travel to Las Vegas, I will hit some of the antiquarian bookstores in the area to see what kinds of rare find that I can come across. Once I have made a purchase, I head right back to my home casino, and request that the purchases that I made are placed right in the vault.
Since the books that I purchase are usually very old, it is very easy to press that they are more expensive than they actually are. This makes it more likely that the hotel managers will allow me to store them in the vault (especially when they realize that the pile is larger than the room-safe that I am supplied with).
I will usually go through a long process about how I want the books handled and stored. I press that I need to be assured that I will get them back in the same condition that I handed them over in. Often, as a way to gain extra trust, hotel mangers have usually given me comps for the adjoined casino.
As I said before, these techniques are not fool-proof and they are not guaranteed. It might be worth trying for a free meal, or a cheaper stay at a casino. If nothing else, I have gotten free t-shirts at least for trying to get something for nothing. Las Vegas casinos give away comps every single day. Why not try to get some for yourself?
