CET question. Does my gambling day start when I check in or play?

    I'm checking late Weds night, 3/16, at the Linq. Thinking about hitting Orleans sportsbooks and then Ellis island and then calling it a night so i can be rested up for March madness party at Flamingo and Cosmos (thanks Kathie). I'm wondering whether or not my gaming day starts when I check in? If I don't play at all that day at CET property then does it hurt me? Or not playing is the same as not be being there?

    The day you check in will count as a gaming day, whether you use your card or not.

    Well, that depends. At Harrahs Reno my check-in day is not a gambling day. My host advises me that at Harrahs Reno, the hotel and the casino are not "linked" with regard to gambling days.

    I stay Friday and Saturday nights and don't swipe my card ANYWHERE on check in day. I only get charged for one gambling day, which is Saturday. I don't swipe my card anywhere on Sunday either. I checked this with my host, and he was correct.

    I'm pretty dang sure it has been confirmed before that Vegas does count each day you use your card. In effect, by staying on an offer, that would be a use of your account so arrival day would count.

    Yes, it has been confirmed. Check OUT day also counts, so if you stay 5 nights your play will be divided by 6 days.

    I will politely disagree and say that it's property dependent. I found this out the hard way that Harrahs Reno and Harrahs Tahoe operate differently. Tahoe follows the Las Vegas model.

    My host at Reno was very surprised to see that I logged 3 gambling days even though I didn't play on check-in day. My two night stays in Reno have consistently been logged for one gambling day.

    But in your example it appears that you "do" agree. You said your most recent stay of 2 nights was logged as 3. Thats exactly what Justmare said. I agree in the past a gambling day was triggered with your card. Thats why most people never used their card after checking out.

    But I'm not sure when or where CET made a switch but it looked like most of 2015 had them rating me (In Vegas, In Atlantic City & in Illinois) including my check out day. I think Hunter has confirmed this very thing in the past as well. I know for a fact MGM does this now as well.

    I have had CET hosts tell me directly that my checkout day was being rated. They wanted to help me protect my ADT. But ask 10 CET host's and you will be given 10 answers. But I can confirm, for me and many of my firends that I have asked, that check out day is now being counted and figured into what they reefer to as a "Gambling Trip" ATT

    That was for Harrahs Tahoe. Harrahs Reno is apparently different. Hence, my statement that it's "property dependent".

    Sorry I wasn't clear about that. In 5 trips to Harrahs Reno (last and) this year I have never been dinged for "checkout day" as long as I hadn't swiped my card.

    the checkin day and checkout day has not been CONFIRMED 100%, but seems to be correct.

    BUT - if you are barely going to play on either of those anyways, just keep you card in your pocket. After all, what are 100 tier credits worth anyways vs a day that might not count?

    Let me clarify. Champ is asking about Vegas and I'm giving him Vegas specific information.

    It has been confirmed for Vegas CET properties. Has been pointed out on the hosts computer screen.

    It's also true that Tropicana and MGM properties add check out day as a gambling day.
