    I play solely full pay VP, I haven't played at all I don't think at the B Connected casinos, because there is only 1 with my machines (sam's town), and they only have 2 machines.

    I was reading about the rewards, and had a question.

    Ruby give 1 point for each $4 coin in for positive VP

    Sapphire says it gives 2x points, and Emerald 3x points.

    I believe it states this DOES apply to positive VP? So, it would turn into 2 points for each $4 in once Sapphire and 3 points for each $4 when Emerald?

    And are these just points redeemable for comps? Or are these tier points that will mean I get through Sapphire 2x faster on my way to reaching Emerald? I'm used to station casinos where tier points and reward points are 2 different things.

    I don't play the 10/7 DB at MSS (or perhaps do they have FP Deuces at Sam's Town?) so can't answer the multiplier for positive VP question, but for these:
    And are these just points redeemable for comps? Yes, the 2x and 3x are 'Slot points' which are redeemable for cashback (1000=$1) or to pay with points where available (600=$1).
    Or are these tier points that will mean I get through Sapphire 2x faster on my way to reaching Emerald? No.
    I'm used to station casinos where tier points and reward points are 2 different things. Same with Boyd.

    Once you have your card you can register on their website where you will clearly see the difference in slot points and tier points.

    You know that at MSS with points and their scratchers you will probably be over 100% return on their 9/6 JoB (assuming quarter level) and those earn points at regular rate.

    Look for multiplier days also. Father's Day was 7x at Gold Coast and Orleans. This would mean at 144 $'s in you would ear 1000 pts. which could be converted to 1 $ free play or about 86 $'s in for 600 points which is equal to a $ in food comps. MSS had 5x points for the month of June when we were there for Sunday-Thursday and you can do the math which makes earning points simple and somewhat fast. You have to use the points at the time of consumption. Not at check-out.
    I do comment it would be appreciated if you could use the points at check-out for food items as you never know what you will be comped at the end of your stay and hate to use points unnecessarily. No change yet. Good luck!!

    tier points don't multiply.
    If you only play those 2 machines, I don't think you have a chance to reach Emerald unless you move your home there.
    Those are very old and slow machines. I would guess 400/hour. That's $500 coin-in or 125 tier points per hour.
    So you need 2000 hours to reach Emerald. That's literally a full time job.

    At BConnected, Slot Points are different from Card Score
    Card Score
    is NEVER multiplied (Always $1 = 1 point for video poker)
    Slot Points are the ones that are multiplied (2x AT ALL TIMES for Sapphire; 3x AT ALL TIMES for Emerald)
    VP can be positive, WITHOUT having to be 100%+ on the machine.
    For instance...if you ONLY play at Sam's Town during point multiplier promotions (i.e.: 7x points), and earned the max daily limit of 10,000 (70k points), on a 99.54% machine. Your theo loss would be $46, and you could cash out your earned points for $70...PLUS the mailers (if you're not a local)...
