    I've heard people say that mLife calculates theo over your whole trip while CET does it by day. I've never fully understood what this means and would love some clarification.

    To me, this sounds like the same thing unless mLife calculates in a way that makes it better to play over a longer period of time.

    Example:

    At a CET property, I have 3 day of theos at $500, $1,500 and $100 ($2,100/3) before hopping on the plane. I can expect a future offer to provide freebies upfront worth about 30-40% of my $700 ADT. I'd a CET property, I'm actually better off not having that third day with little play.

    But at an mLife property, my offers will be based off of that $2,100, so that 3rd day actually will help my future offers?

    If so, that's way more in comps from mLife (unless they make up for it with a lower comp rate than CET).

    Please shine some light here! Thanks!

    You will get replies from posters who are better at comp calculations than me.
    My understanding is if you are in the hotel as a casino guest,just checking out on your last day goes down as a "day" calculated in your theo.
    So it may not matter if you play or not.
    I have not stayed at a CET property in several years but I think I read that the check out day counts whether you play or not.

    Good point to consider. I'm trying to understand the ADT part more though, so let's say that 3rd day was after checkout (just two days in the hotel). 3rd day I was at another property outside the company. :)

    Sure. lol Feel free to alter the example as needed to explain the issue. Hadn't considered all the little details here.
