    Just curious. I know they are a joke but i am curious how they are compiled. It doesn't make sense to me. Maybe i have had a couple too many beverages.

    Here are my number. Platinum last year. Platinum this year again with about 210,000 points. I never really show my card for anything so i dont think i compile many that way. Anyone have a ballpark number i should have. MLIFE says i have 9,000 which of course are useless. Play just slots.

    You only get HGS points for slot play. How much of your play is slots?


    Edit: lol...obviously I don't know how to read the post completely before replying.

    If you play non-special slots that's 27,000 coin in assuming you weren't there during the summer when they multiply your points.

    I think you can get an ice cube and a rubber band for 9,000 pts

    With a win/loss statement the last 4 quarters of roughly 20K then 27 k in coin in would be pretty awful!

    If you used your player's card at all times you are owed more points. For a guide I had just under 1.2 million TC and have 92,000 points. But I had multiple trips in summer where you earn bonus points

    If you played only specialty slots you would have 90,000 coin in.

    1 Base point = $3 coin in on regular slots, $10 coin in on specialty slots. 1 Base Point = 1 HGS point. They do occasionally run bonus days where you get 2x or 3x HGS points.

    9,000 HGS points implies between $27,000 coin in on non-specialty slots and $90,000 coin in on specialty slots.

    Either way, that's only 90,000 Tier Credits, so that implies you had over $4,000 in hotel spend.

    I am Platinum, earned 350,000 tier credits this past year and have 31,500 gift points
    MIL is Platinum, earned 1.5 mil tier credits this past year and has 660,000 gift points (and she isnt even going to use hers!! SMH)
    Her coin in for the year was outrageuously high.

    We were both there for the multiplier weekends this summer.
