    Before my last trip

    TCs = 15,292
    EC = $92.59
    PointsPlay = $11.58

    After this last trip

    TCs = 28,358
    ECs = $111.00
    PointsPlay = $28.96


    10 TCs for every point...
    20% Point bonus for Gold Tier...

    Points earned this trip = (2896 - 1158)/1.2 = 1448.333 (how can it be uneven?!?)

    Should have gotten 14,483 TCs


    BlackJack Ratings
    68 minutes at $30 average
    27 minutes at $125 average

    Theo = ($30/hand * 1hand/min*68min*1%) + ($125/hand * 1hand/min*27min*1%) = $54.15

    30 TCs per $1 Theo...
    54.15 * 30 = 1626

    Should have gotten 1,626 TCs

    Spent $5 in retail shop using Gold Tier discount...25 TCs per $1 spend = 125 TCs

    Total should be around to 31,526


    Using these same methods comparing previous trips gets the TCs to within a few single TCs...


    I know it is only 3,000 TCs but I barely renew Gold every year so every TC counts...


    Can someone check my calcs and assumptions please? Did I miss something?

    Where did you get the calculation of ADT * 30 = tier credits? Were you able to get these values from mlife desk? I'd love to be able to see what I was rated at and for how long.

    Also perhaps your house edge for blackjack is off?

    I posted the 30 TCs/$1 theo in the past, it was a number I got from someone at MLife and they even showed it to me in their book. It also reconciled perfectly at times with peoples' numbers. But on my last trip it didn't reconcile at all and I was getting a lot more than that, more like 43 TCs/$1 theo. In terms of average bet it worked out to around 22.7 TCs per hour * avg bet. This also worked out with some other peoples' numbers. So it is a bit confusing.

    I posted about it here: http://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=100545

    Your two BJ sessions average out to 95 minutes @ $57 average. Using the new numbers above that should equate to around 2050 TCs. So the total difference would be even a little more than what you're getting.

    Here's what i got from my calculator :

    your BJ action alone is equivalent to 95 mins at $57/bet

    Assuming 0.6% HA and 72 hands/hr, my math comes out to $6498 coin-in, $39 theo, and 3249 TC.
