How much money do you have to spend to be considered a High Roller in Vegas?

Just curious. I know I'm not a high roller, but just curious as to how much money you have to spend to gain that title.

    It depends greatly on the casino as to what each one considers a "high roller." A bigwig at Excalibur can be a small fry at Bellagio. For example, a lower end place would fall all over themselves for a $100 a hand player while Bellagio wouldnt even bat an eye.

    Also another misconception is that you must bet $1000s a hand to have the casino even notice you. This couldnt be further from the truth. There are only so many $1000 a hand players but each casino has several casino hosts. Who do you think these people are working with? It is the $50 a hand guy or the .25 slot player who makes 3 or 4 trips a year. This is really where all the money is made in Vegas, not on the so called high rollers.

    As for markers, anyone can get credit with a casino regardless of play level. You just need to contact the casino cage prior to going, fill out a credit app and if you have enough cash in the bank, you got a credit line. It has absolutely nothing to do with how much you gamble.

    Two more points... I would suggest that everyone always play with a slot club card or ask to be rated when playing at the tables. Even a little bit of play may get you a buffet or coffee shop comp. Secondly, if you think you will be spending a decent amount of time gambling, contact a casino host before going. At worst, you might get a discount room and often if enough play is given they will give you comps you otherwise wouldnt be able to get through the slot club booth.

    Las Vegas is the absolute most exciting and amusing town in the world and with hotelbye you will discover out more. Nowhere otherwise on earth you will find a town that has all of the journey amenities that merely a complete resort location can offer: luxurious casino accommodations, great dining, amazing stay entertainment and state-of-the art tradition and industry show facilities. Las Vegas is definitely a spectacular town and anything that you'd assume from a world-class metropolis, and more, is below for your vacation pleasure. One of many areas you need to visit in Las Vegas could be the Fremont Street, a pedestrian area with a myriad of unique sites.

    High roller is a loose term. There are different levels of "high roller." I get free rooms; shows; food; priority seating at certain casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, and I don't lose tens of thousands of dollars. My father on the other hand, gets free flights; chartered vacations; big gifts; suites; gourmet meals, etc. We are both high level players, but on an average casino trip, his play is much more than mine. You don't have to break the bank to get the perks, but you should start with a player's card like Rob L stated. Every little bit helps.

    I once was at the Mirage playing blackjack with a friend while waiting for a seat at a poker game. I was playing the low limit table at $5 a hand. The dealer seemed friendly and I asked what kind of play would warrant a comped room? She looked at my bet and said that I would need to start betting $100 per hand to warrant the attention of a host.

    You would have to gamble away thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars on a regular basis to be treated like a high roller. Nothing is free. If they're giving you a free luxury suite and free limo service etc, then they obviously are getting that money back from you when you gamble. These enticements are to keep you gambling in their casino instead of trying your luck elsewhere.

    You have to gamble regularly, betting thousands in each hand and then the casino asks you to go to the high rollers room. They also give you tickets to shows and free dinners to try to encourage you to come back.

    My "ex" was a high roller and he use to bet minimum $2000.00 a hand or a roll! On any one visit he would play between $20,000 to $30,000. Hope it helps!

    Just a little FYI! When they give you markers in Vegas, its based on your credit rating and it is a totally UNSECURED loan for them. They give you the money solely based on your credit. It makes it really hard to collect because its unsecured.

    a "whale" is considered someone who could hurt the casino's bottom line if they get on a winning streak. So I would expect it to be in the millions...but I know if you spend a few thousand you still get treated weel
