If they don't know who you are, then they (and that usually means a
computer) won't know who to give the comp to.
3. Play Blackjack
It's the easiest game to master (at least basic strategy wise) and the
casinos have no way of knowing whether you're a good player or just
an average schmoe who doesn't know the different between a soft 14 and
a taco (although they both will give you gas).
4. Bet More When the Boss is Watching
The essence of Comp Wizardry is to trick bosses. This is the first weapon
in your arsenal.
5. Bet Less When the Boss isn't Watching
Duh. The reason you do this is to pump up your rating and make the boss
think that you're a high roller. The computers only know what the bosses
tell them and the bosses are always wrong. Make sure their mistakes
are in your favor.
6. Take Breaks
The comp meter keeps running whether you're on the game or not, so take
as many breaks as you (and the boss) can stomach.
7. Look Like a Loser
Everybody loves a winner, except in a casino. This means that you should
deftly hide chips every time you play. Losers get more.
8. Gift the Bosses
A small token of your appreciation to a boss goes a long way to getting
an inflated rating. Some might think of this gifting as a bribe, but
Max looks at it as just spreading the milk (and beer and whiskey) of
human kindness around the casino.
9. Never Turn Down a Comp
If they offer, say yes. Even if you don't use it, you can give
it away and your Karma score will go sky high.
10. Be Nice
Nice guys eat room service lobster and get to ride around in limos while
the turds often wind up with their rating slips wadded up, dying a slow
death in the bottom of the trash cans.
