Lots of express comps in tunica?

    First off, my wife and I have a joint account with mlife. We are currently platinum. We haven't been to a mlife casino since last April.
    I have accrued almost $4700 in express comps over the years and only used them a couple times. I am at Goldstrike in tunica to make sure I don't lose them because of the 1 year with no activity rule and tunica is the closest.
    So we arrive at midnight and I check into the room. Wife goes down to do her slot thing. At 6 am, she has earned 13901 tiers and $315.33 in express comps
    The question is ....doesn't that seem like a lot of ECs for that amount of tier credits? I am now within $3.00 of hitting the $5000 cap on my EC account.
    Do the non Vegas mlife casinos have different calculations on this where I'm actually being shorted tiers instead of being overpaid on ECs?

    I believe there is a difference.

    But, in your case, it probably does not matter since you have so many anyways.

    If I was you, I would start spending those before the ever powerful back room accountants find a way to screw you out of them.

    Yes, but those ECs still seem too high (or TCs too low). According to MLife's site at Gold Strike you get 2 TCs per base point (instead of 10) and 2c in ECs per base point instead of 1c. So fewer TCs but more ECs.

    Still, with 13900 TCs it means she earned 6950 base points, which would mean $139 in ECs plus 30% Platinum bonus for $180 ECs. If you work it out backwards from her actual ECs earned her TCs should have been closer to 24,250. So it seems either the ECs are high or the TCs are low.

    You can see the Gold Strike details here in the footnotes: https://www.mlife.com/pages/comparison.html

    I read an article in today's paper that the Tunica market is getting clobbered to the point of a 25-30 % year to year decline in money taken in. M-Life may be upping the players club rewards in an effort to get someone in the market.
