    It was my understanding that express comps accrue as a percentage of theoretical for table game play. Does anybody know what percentage this is?

    I believe it used to be around 10% but I think that was adjusted down.

    Previous estimates of Tier Credit earnings to theo show that the ratio is probably the same for table games as it is for slots, if one assumes a 10% hold rate on slots.

    $3 coin in on slots = $0.30 in theo and $0.01 in Express Comps, or 3.3% of theo.

    So, if we assume the same is true for table games, then it should be $.033 (Three and one-third cents) per $1 of theo at the Sapprire level,

    $.037 per $1 of theo at Pearl
    $.04 per $1 of theo at Gold
    $.043 per $1 of theo at Platinum
    $.047 per $1 of theo at Noir

    I don't know when it was 10% (maybe in the beginning), but is has been 5% for at least a couple of years since I've been paying attention. That is before your tier bonus. Not sure if its been adjusted down recently, it could be without any sort of announcement since they don't actually state the EC earning rate for tables on their literature anyway.

    They did cut the EC earning ratio in half when they went to the Oct 1-based year. It was originally 2 cents per base slot point ($3 coin in). The explanation at the time was that they would take the difference and somehow give you better offers.
