    I've had the pit crew ask me for my players card a few times and I just looked at my B Connected online account and it's showing 0 for table points. Seems weird they would ask for the card and I'd have 0 points...this is for play that was a few months ago so it's not like it hasn't been updated yet.

    I think I read somewhere that it's hard to get anything from the table games at MSS but I didn't expect a goose egg

    I had a awful run of VP on this last trip and did some losing at craps. I dumped close to $1,000 at the MSS crap tables and see nothing on my B Connected card, just slot scores.

    Fine, I guess I don't care since I mainly play VP, but you would think there would be something there.

    Besides VP and slots, I frequently play craps at MSS. Several times, I recorded my card score before jumping on a table. I think they have some kind of conversion chart because I noted that my card score increased after playing. I have not been paying attention to my slot points.

    I have noticed that if I spend several hours at the blackjack tables they will add points. My host will recap my play, even at other Boyd properties, and it has been very accurate. Now what the conversion rate/method is I do not know. Like Joe 99% of my play is VP.

    That said... my short 15 - 20 minute hit and run sessions are rarely rated.

    I play mostly VP downtown, but do play craps some and BJ once in while when friends are in town with us. Anyway, I only see my table play online on my Boyd page in a seperate box just above the "play meter" or whatever its called. I don't believe I see the table play on with my card in a machine or any other way.

    That's exactly where I'm looking and I'm seeing a zero. I hope they are converting them to slot points...I've had a couple up down up down 6-7 hour sessions so those definitely aren't hit and runs

    I have noticed the posting of table points but do not know at what rate they are acquired and if the conversion to comps within the Boyd system is the same as slot or more/less. I plan to inquire from my host such information so that at least I can see how it comes around. What is strange is there is no explaination available on the personal page @ bconnected of any kind. But yes I played bj and craps last time in addition to vp and scored some points in both categories.

    At Orleans last week I played a few hours at UTH and Pai gow and had 375 table points posted. What does that mean toward my total card score? My total card score well exceeds my slot+table scores.

    I've inquired more than a few times at more than a few Boyd/Coast player clubs to get an explanation just what Table Points are and have given up! Answers have ranged from "I'm not sure, ask a host," to "they're just like slot points," but most replies are a mix of bs and gobbledygook that I can't begin to comprehend. I play mostly BJ and a little VP, my Card Score is around 100,000 with nearly 50,000 Slot Points, but it's the 5 Table Points that have me totally mystified.

    Turtleman: All the BJ you play at Boyd and it is only showing 5 table play points?

    Yep, just 5. But since I don't have a clue what Table Points even are, it's hard to get upset. Ms. Gecko has 1.

    Where do you guys see this? All I see is a slot point total with a card score number below it, is that card score what you're talking about?

    What they told me

    I had the same issue last year (no table game points after lots of play) and sent inquiries to all the Boyd casinos where I played table games.

    What they explained to me was that in Las Vegas, your table play is rated for comps, but you do not receive table game points. After playing for awhile, you can ask the pit boss for a comp. But you won't accrue points like you do for VP or slot machines. I didn't ask how this affects your tier score though. I'm assuming you get some "credit" towards your tier score through table play.

    At my "local" casino (Sam's Town Shreveport) they don't grant comps at the pit - you earn table games points. When you want to use points to pay for something, they use your table games points first.

    And in Vegas, they allegedly can't "see" your table game points and use them like your slot points. I tried to have a host use my STS table points to pay for some room incidentals and she couldn't do it because she said she couldn't "see" them in her computer.

    It's all terribly confusing.

    I'm sure some of you who have seen a few table game points on your bconnected account will say you only played tables in Vegas - so how did they get there?

    As I said, confusing.

    I'm not sure if I've added anything useful to this discussion, but I tried!

    Cheers,
    Kelly

    Table Points are worth double for comps. I asked at the bconnected desk.
    I only play craps and mainly at Sams Town in Tunica.

    Interesting. So, what would 5 table points equate to?

    Letsgotovegas: You're right about CONFUSING! When playing in Vegas, we're used to getting meal comps from the pit; but maybe, just maybe, we got the mysterious table points when playing at Sam's Town in Tunica a few years back. (I don't recall when the points first showed up, but I played BJ mostly at Hollywood Casino for the three days Ms. Gecko wasn't around.) We did play together at Sam's on a Friday night, but if that's where the table points came from, I would think our scores would be nearly the same. Maybe the small amount of extra time I played there earned the extra 4 measly points.

    I have 7775 slot point and 18504 table points. I think that is $7.78 + $37.00

    So … assuming my table points came from Tunica, I guess they must not expire, as it's been a couple years since I was last there. I guess slot points don't expire either, but I'm never away from Vegas that long to find out.

    Thanks for helping clear up some of the mystery!

    Since you are earning some kind of points they shouldn't expire.:beer:

    They told me that card score is what they use to determine what card level you are, regular (red), sapphire (blue) or emerald (green). When we were at Orleans in December, we played VP and BJ. My card score is about 600 more "points" than my slot points are. I guess they have some sort of way to compute BJ play into the card score. I didn't even think to ask for a comp from the pit critter...the wife and I played about 4 hours, her at the $5 minimum, and me anywhere between that and $20 a hand....we are going again in a couple of weeks, so I may have to ask for a food comp after playing for hours at the table :cheers:

    I have 43,600 on player card level with 62,000 slot points and 3,675 table points. I can tell you about the slot points but no clue as to the level of table points. However, could it be average bet times average bet per hour if possible? If computed at the same as slot points (1 $ in = 1 point) you could earn 300 points in an hour of blackjack IF you got the theoretical 60 hands per hour(?)....but again why must it be so confusing. Will be asking for clarity shortly and post my findings (or not).
