A New Old Wrinkle on Mlife Multiple Booked Offers

The more savvy and veteran players that visit Vegas know that you can book multiple rounds of bookings at both Mlife and Caesars, as long as you have a gap of 72 hours between bookings.

For those who like to do longer stays in Vegas, this can be helpful because you can, say, book an Mlife offer with free play and resort credit, head off elsewhere for a few nights, and then come back for a second round at the same or another Mlife property.

My last three Vegas trips, I booked Mlife offers at least twice, and in one instance I booked it three times. It’s great because you get free play and resort credit each time around, which helps take the edge off of the cost of an overall Vegas trip.

However, on the Mlife site a new line of language was added that had not been present in previous checks, and certainly has never been so prominent:

FREEPLAY valid on first trip only. Must maintain historical play level to redeem on subsequent trips.

So what does this mean? If you book multiple bookings, and you no or low play them relative to your normal play, they could pull back the FREEPLAY component of your offer.

Now, this actually isn’t a new policy per se, although I’m not sure if it was enforced in the relatively recent past. I’ve spoken with Mlife players who have said they’ve encountered this issue occasionally, although a quick phone call by someone at the Mlife desk gets it overridden. But the fact they’re making it more prominent may be an indication that they’re going to enforce it much more carefully going forward.

I would also hope this means they’ll be able to be more transparent at the Mlife desk and tell you what that expected historical play level is so you can at least be careful around it if the free play is important to you.

On my most recent trip to Vegas, my coin-in was paced out daily at Mlife to maintain my normal averages (and something I could do intentionally given my better-than-average luck on machines out there), but at the end of the day if you take a bad hit early, it may not be worth “maintaining historical play level” by spending hundreds of dollars to salvage $50, $100 or whatnot of free play.

h/t to regular reader and friend Gabor for pointing out the new language on the Mlife site!
