    Ok so I get the different tier levels ( I'm currently plat) but what I woukd like to know is what "formula" is it they use to determine your tier credits.

    Let's say I buy in a $25. BJ game with a grand, bet 25 to 75 per hand and hang in there, if my bank roll will allow, 8 to 10 hours. Do you think this would get me anywhere?

    Of course, if the gambling gods are feeling kind and smiling down on me my bets would be pressed..

    I can never make rhyme or reason of it. It seems sometimes I earn more at a 10. table than I do in a high limit room???

    CET considers this proprietary information, for some reason, and will not tell you. I have calculated based on my own data that you earn 1.5-1.6 tier credits per hour per dollar bet on BJ games at CET. So in your case, betting at a $50 average for 10 hours would earn you about 750 tier credits.

    If you are varying your bets, a lot will depend on how the pit actually rates you, so after a long session it definitely makes sense to ask them what they think your average bet was. Especially as a "happygirl" you might be able to get them to bump it up.

    I am rated at $50 per hour at a few CET properties (positively as I know the pit boss) and normally play around 8 hours and afterwards am normally up about 600 credits. Not sure if that helps but I normally also get this 125 tier credit bonus based on my "activity", which if you play $50 hands for at least 8 hours per day you will almost always receive.

    It's silly, MLife will tell you what you're rated, etc over the phone but CET- you actually need to be at the property and ask someone in TR or the pit staff.

    Check with the pit boss

    Like LandryBalla9 says it's always good to check your rating with the pit boss when your session is complete to make sure they saw your actual play and not just one lower bet hand. I make sure that I do this especially if I'm playing during multiple pit boss shifts and/or changing bet amounts. The eyes can't see everything.

    That last part about talking with the pit boss about your rating is imperative. Last week on my trip I was rated, somehow to my disbelief, $15 a hand (it was the table min and perhaps I made that bet two or three times all night out of a thousand hands) and when I found this out from TR it was likely because it was a new pit boss who I didn't know and because I didn't ask at the end of my session what I was rated at. Stay on them, in a friendly manner of course, because they can raise your average bet for the hell of it if they like you, you're there a lot, etc.

    Thanks for the info. I typically do try to have/make some sort of connection with pb as well as dealers. I figure if I'm sitting there ( hopefully) all day it's just more comfortable. I will be sure to inquire at the end anyway.

    Like I have said elsewhere, I am "tied" to CET b/c the availability of locations ( I'm in NJ) but I wonder if Boyd props treat their players a little better or more generously?
