Is 60 cents really equal to 60 dollars in the casino?

    The loyalty points in the myvegas game rack up equally for 60 "cent" spins on the slots as for the 60 "dollar" hands on the table.

    I am wondering if perhaps that is truly how the real casino values that 60 cent play as equal to the 60 dollars per hand play, considering that slot players receive better comps.

    Tough to say exactly, as tracking of blackjack isn't perfect in a casino.

    But lets compare based on mLife express comps (to avoid the vagaries of ADT and other things affecting offers)

    You get 2 cents of express comps for every dollar of "coin in" in an mLife slot. So $1 express comp equals $50 coin in.

    For blackjack, you get 5% of theo, so with some assumptions from previous mlife blackjack players comments, $1 in express comps would be $20 in theoretical loss, which would require just over $1600 in "coin in".

    So not quite as bad (although those are big assumptions on my part). If the ratio you listed held up you'd expect it to take 5000. But yeah, its significantly more.
