    I'm usually a table game player, but I've been practicing video poker. To keep track of my coin in, I think I can just watch how much point play I earn and do the math from there.

    I'm gold, so I think I get a 20% bonus. So what I think that means is that every time I have earned $12 in point play, I've put $10000 coin in on video poker.

    Is this correct?

    Yeah that's right. Also while you're playing there is a little session points thing on the bottom of the screen that you can use for that session, at least there was on the VP machines i played. 1 point equal to $10 coin-in, no tier bonus on that.

    Could someone please make the same extrapolation for me on traditional reel slots (IE., Double Diamond) as a Platinum member?

    Many thanks.

    FJD, you should get 1 cent per $3 coin-in on those non-specialty slots and a 30% platinum bonus so 1.3 cents. Then its just:

    ($pointplay/0.013) * $3 = total coin-in

    As a very close estimate you can just multiply your pointplay by 230 to get your total coin-in.

    Thanks Kickin. I've always seen the points thing on VP machines but never really understood it's relation to tier credits/coin in.

    Thanks for the numbers crunchin' KC...but I thought those bonuses relating to Tier Status only applied to things like Express Comps...and not to hard-dollar comps like Point Play or even to Tier Points themselves...or does it in fact apply?

    That said I have no clue...probably the way they want it.

    FJD, I originally thought that too but the tier bonuses do apply to both ECs and PP. They don't apply to tier points.

    The info was less than clear and hard to find on their website. Imagine that.
