It has to do with comp dollars and what a casino "charges" to use them. Let's say you earn $1 comp for every hour of poker. If you play for 20 hours, that's $20 comp dollars.
Now lets say you go to purchase something with your $20 comp dollars. If the casino allows you a 1:1, if the item is $15 you will be able to purchase it with $5 comp dollars left over. If the casino charges you 2:1 for the item, you will not have enough money to purchase it because the item costs "$30" or you have $10 comp dollars.
