    On my last trip to MGM, I earned 250,000 Tier and IIRC 31,000 in Point Play.

    Wondering which number to use to extrapolate actual coin-in (and what my number was)?

    Spoke with a Host and he said that what the casino goes by is Point Play to determine how you did on the trip for comps, not Tier.

    TIA.

    That is very true. I am lucky to hit platinum at cet because I go like once or twice a year. But I play a bit when I go so I get good offers of free rooms and free play.

    Yes, you would use your points, not your tier credits: the points earned for POINTPlay represent money actually gambled through the slots and VP, whereas while your tier score does include money gambled, it could also include purchases made (cost of room, dining, gift shop, etc - you earn 25 TC for every dollar spent so it can add up with a couple of nights and a dinner or two).

    Based on your 31,000 points earned towards POINTPlay one could estimate that your coin in was roughly $125,500.

    But that is just an estimate and actual number really depends on which games you were playing (some games earn points slower than others, some don't earn any points at all!).

    I don't know why everybody worrries about points from here or there. If you get free rooms thats always good. Anything after that talk to your host. 20 years ago nobody ever heard about a host-me included-but now everybody thinks that if they spend a few thousand dollars they should be comped.Good luck

    depending on what you were playing id guess you had about 35k coin-in much more if you were playing JoB video poker, much less if you were playing mega-bucks

    By my calc, it would take a minimum of $78,000, assuming you were playing slots that paid full base points:
