    Im wondering how much freeplay do high end players get?

    I am level 2 diamond, 130,000 points. My average bet was 400, tables only. Max i get is 600 monthly promotion. Seems a bit low for my bets. The thing is i only play like 2-4 hours a day.

    I'm mid Diamond, average around 70,000 TC's yearly. My offers are usually only 300-400 in FP a promo. I'm slots only. I doubt card color determines the amount of FP one receives. I'm betting it's based on your ADT as well.

    Freeplay is solely based on ADT. Freeplay is given out a lot more for slot players.

    I earned 23,000ish points last year over two visits, 10-ish total nights. Biggest offer I've gotten for a weekend is $225 FP. My yearly offer that I can use whenever I want is $100 FP and $50 RC.

    its completely based on ADT, if you only play Keno you will get a lot more FP than if you only play DD S17 blackjack

    Last two years... end at around 90,000 I think.

    Biggest freeplay from CET was maybe $300.

    As mentioned above, it is all tied to ADT - not tier.

    I agree that free play is generally tied to ADT - not tier.

    But there are other variables which will affect your free play in my experience. First, ever since CET filed bankruptcy I have seen my Las Vegas based free play suddenly drop in half even based on the same play (including slot play). Went from $900 free play to half that. Second, if you go often to a CET casino, you may find your free play drop as the CET proprietary database notes it is already succeeding in bringing you in so why over-entice you? By contrast, if you stop going for six months or so, I have seen free play rebound. Third, every CET local area seems to have it own behavior as to free play including whether they are sold out or not. By way of example, not a lot of free play promotions in Vegas during Super Bowl weekends, but other weekends in Feb more normal. Also more free play in Iowa in the winter than summer.

    My offers have dropped to around 300, I'm a mid level diamond. Had been getting over 400, I'd have to look back but I think they used to be higher. I've reduced my play there now. Still play cet to maintain some offers but I prefer cosmo rooms and environment so I've switched focus. Partly due to reduced offers. Partly due to feeling like I couldn't utilize my diamond benefits (especially locally) without wrecking my adt, so I'll play enough to maintain diamond and keep rooms probably (maybe).

    Last couple of years I've limped over the Diamond line thanks to TC bonus. I'm currently being offered $200 FP.

    Why do you think you deserve more?

    Analytics takes a great amount of information into consideration. It isn't solely ADT. Things like play tendencies, time in action, frequency of visit, time of year, etc are used. Tier status is only a benefit program. Any offers specifically tied to tier status (i.e. Dia 2 and 7* trips) are considered benefits and not offers, which is why we can stack another offer on top of them. Your avg bet is pretty solid, but an even bigger factor is how long you jam out at that avg bet. We usually like to see 4+ hours, 4-6 is the "goldilocks zone". So for your 2-4 hours, you are getting an offer similar to what someone with a 200 avg bet would get that plays the gold standard of hours. Also, a point made below is the type of game you play. Higher hold games such as slots and roulette are going to result in more theo, thus higher offers, than playing 3 card or pai gow.

    Also has to do with how you play when you redeem that offer. Not playing up or on par with the history that got you that free play is the kiss of offer death. From my perspective, the folks whose offers drop is more attributed to a drop in play than changing market conditions. Whenever I bring a new customer over with an enticement of in-the-door incentives, I also make sure I express to him/her that the first trip is crucial and will set the tone for all subsequent offers. There is a counterpoint here where most customers will claim their play hasn't dropped, but the computer doesn't show that. If you feel your play hasn't dropped but it is being recorded lower, I recommend you get into the habit of discussing your avg bet with the pit supervisor prior to having your play closed out. They don't mind and it is easy to get verification from the dealer if it is off. With table play there is an unavoidable human element.

    I'm a lower 7*, a little over 350,000 tier points. I play mostly Video Poker 3-5-10 Play usually at $1/2. This trip in two weeks I'm getting $900. This offer was for January and February. It's also part of my 7* retreat trip which my host added on per my request. It's the highest I've gotten. Many times I get $750. I really think that it depends on time of the year and what's going on in town.

    That's interesting. I went to the TR desk at PH on Sunday and asked about the $100 folio credit that I had with Level 1 Aspirations. She said that I was booked on a different offer and couldn't use that...so it will go un-used again this year it looks like.

    A host can add the $100 folio to your room while booked on another offer, but I don't think Total Rewards clerks can.

    lol - My 500-1000 TC per day is getting me $60 tops in FreePlay (Diamond). (And yes, that is with around 8 hours of play a day). I would have thought lesser play in Tunica last fall would have affected it, but it has stayed consistently the same. Oh well.....

    I average $3,500 - $4,000 a day coin in on $5 and up slots for 7 nights twice a year. The standard rolling (ie. repeating) offer I get is $100 freeplay and $50 resort credit. I also get offers that target certain 3 day periods with $200 (occasionally $225) freeplay instead; if my dates line up, I use those offers instead. It's been the same for the last couple of years.

    See it's funny because I earn the same, though it's been closer to 1000 TC lately. I'm diamond. All of my FP offers are $200ish now, or a combination of FP/RC to equal $200

    Are you talking about the $100 dinner deal? Thought that was always available. Interesting.

    The $100 folio credit is different then the $100 Diamond Dinner. The folio credit is part of the Diamond Aspirations 1 trip deal (hotel and folio credit, no airfare).

    Yeah, this is a $100 folio credit. I thought it was but not according to the TR desk at PH. I didn't eat need it anyways but if they would have let me use it...i may have.
