Casino Comp Questions with Craig Vol 2.

Can 2 Members of the Same Household Book 2 Certificates on the Same Cruise?

Let's say a player receives either an annual free cruise (tier benefit), for up to eight days, or an onboard certificate, earned from play during a cruise. Can two members of the same household book two different cabins on the same sailing? The certificate says that you can't book two cabins on the same cruise.

But! The new policy is that, if we ask, they can override that and give you two different cabins. The official policy is you CAN book two different cabins with your separate certificates, BUT you and the other household member have to stay in the two different cabins booked under your name. If the ship finds out that you are not actually sleeping in the cabin that your certificate covered, they could reverse the comp on the cabin you didn't stay in.

We are not sure exactly how the ship could enforce that or find out... It seems a little difficult.

The point is, you can book both certificates as long as you stay in the separate cabins that YOUR certificate covered. 

Does URCOmped work with Casinos in Las Vegas?

Yes! We currently work with Main Street Station, Golden Nugget, and The California. We currently have an event planned at Main Street Station, in downtown Las Vegas, June 6 - 9, 2019. We will have a cocktail reception, a beer tasting at the Main Street Station Brewery, a private craps table, and Steve "Heavy" Haltom will be there! 

What length is my anticipated bankroll for?

Several members have asked: When I say my bankroll, is that for a 7 day cruise? 

When you sign up for URComped, the prompt question asks, "If you took a 7 day cruise, what would your bankroll be?"

BUT! If you are requesting a 5 day cruise, you can state what your bankroll would be for that five day cruise. Ask yourself, "what is my loss limit? What is the most I'll spend in the casino playing?"

We have to be as transparent as possible with the cruise lines and they want to know what level of players they are getting. So bankroll is the budget for whatever length of cruise (or stay) you are planning on going on.

Be sure to state bankroll as accurately as possible. What could get a player suppressed from URComped offers is saying they have a high bankroll and then not playing close to that level. 

How do shorter or longer cruises affect your rate of play?

There are 2 key measures for how offers are calculated. URComped will qualify you based on which of the two is higher in order to get you the best offer possible.

1. Average Daily Theoretical (ADT)

2. Average Trip Theoretical (ATT)

A player's average daily play should be consistent, or maybe even higher on a shorter cruise (so you can use ADT to qualify) or if you tend to do longer trips, your average trip play is going to be higher.

Taking shorter or longer cruises shouldn't affect your rate of play as long as you play as consistent on your shorter trip or even a little bit more on a per day basis.

We treat Bahamas Paradise differently from other cruise lines, since those cruises are such a short trip. They are treated similarly to a land based casino trip, so it won't affect your cruise offers.

Does URComped have plans to work with Norwegian Cruise Lines?

Possibly, we've had some contract negotiations with Norwegian Cruise Line, and we've gone back and forth.

URComped did work with NCL in the past, and we may work them in the future.

URComped CEO, Craig Shacklett used to work on Norwegian Cruise Line as a casino host.

For now, URComped's partners are Celebrity Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, MSC, Princess Cruise Line, Holland America, Bahamas Paradise and a handful of Caribbean casinos that you have to check out! Paradisus Palma Real is spectacular, all inclusive, on the beach, and has an amazing golf course. Check out our Caribbean Casinos!

How far out does URComped have sailings?

Right now, the furthest out URComped goes is 13/14 months (with the exception of a meet-up cruise).

Casinos do not like to offer sailings that far out, because a lot of gambling is done with discretionary income. So much can change to someone's assets over 2 years. A person's business could go under, someone could lose a job, or something else could change someone's financial ability to play in the casino. 

Cruise Lines initially limited URComped to only booking 3-6 months out. Thankfully, as we built our reputation, we're now able to book 13-14 months out.

Not sure what URComped is?

URComped works with Casino Partners to give Qualified Members new offers (comps) to Caribbean Resorts and Cruise Lines that they have never been to/ played at before. Think you may be qualified??
