According to their website, I can earn 1 point for $1 in slot or VP play. At my local CET casino, I need $5 in slot or $10 for VP for 1 point. I am not sure about the play need for the other downtown properties 1) Is there a catch? Is it really 10x easier to earn points at the EC? 2) The site also says 500 EC pts = $1 in cash back. Is it the same factor to change them into comp dollars? 3) If I earn 2,000 EC points in a day, I will get that night's stay comped. What points are required for a comped room at the 3 Boyd properties? What about the Plaza or any of the other downtown properties? Since I am not getting my room comped upfront for my trip, I am trying to figure out where to stay. Also I am trying to figure out where I can get the most comps for my play. I will mostly play VP, but will also play BJ and Craps.
