Casino’s tighten the comps when the money gets tight for a casino. Could be for many reasons, poor economy, poor management, or a change in ownership. But it appears that most players never return back with the same loyalty. While I’m sure the casino’s save a lot initially, In the long term the property losses are compounded by the reduction of play overtime. Not worth the risk I’m my opinion. It’s a hard cost, comps, just like paying the power bill or water bill. Keep the players happy and they will reward you with their play because those same players are going to play somewhere.... if not at your property where you have chosen to reduce comps.... then to your competition across the street where they develop a new relationship and never return back.
