One can argue about the value of these different gaming program levels but at least now MGM has returned a status match option to Nevada as previously this was only possible in Atlantic City.

These are the benefits with the MLife program:

I’m Noir with MLife for several years now and based on my experience with the program even as a lower tier before the main advantage is the option to cut lines at the hotel and casino. Some of the lower grade hotels such as Luxor do offer the official hotel upgrade benefit but to get something nice at the more modern, popular casinos in a better location rarely give out nice rooms.

There might be some of our readers who still have MLife Gold/Platinum through the MGM/Hyatt Partnership – see my old article here. Those who have done this in the past and whose status has expired could now get it back if they hold a casino tier at one of the other programs.

In reverse, you can also match your MLife Status to Hyatt Explorist per their mutual tier match agreement which is very decent and gives you good benefits at Hyatt.

Conclusion

It’s great that MGM has brought the status match back. But remember: Just because you hold a Total Rewards Diamond Card don’t expect to be treated like a king at the casino or property. Casino memberships rely, to a very large extent, on the ratings of the player (cardholder) accomplished through gaming and of course the VIP’s are those people who gamble (and potentially lose) the most. Casinos then give out status cards such as this Diamond card to their good customers.

The top of the line customers (high rollers or “whales”) often don’t even use such a card but are rated on a face basis and play in a different league altogether. You’ll often find that casino employees will swipe your card and be confused when they can’t see any gaming data after pulling up your profile, yet you hold the high tier card.

So yes, you will get the hard benefits as guaranteed by the program, meaning waiver of some fees and discounts here and there, maybe even an upgrade. But don’t expect free stuff being thrown at you or that you can trick casinos into thinking that you’re a high roller. These establishments are very good of keeping records and ‘comps’ as the complimentary items are called are reserved for real gamblers only.
