    I'm staying at Delano in 3 weeks. I give them (MB) majority of my slot and BJ action. Does it even matter as far as the table games are concerned? My BJ bets are $25-$200 (when deck is heavy of course). I'll mix in some $10 craps (max odds on pass line and come bets) and $10 3 card poker as well. I know it takes a lot of time and hands to get decent ADT from the tables. Slots are where I get my TC's from and offers from. At least I think.

    Wouldn't mind exploring off strip and other properties for table action if it's not going to significantly bump my rating at MB/MLIFE.

    Typically, to get rated, you have to wager $25/hand. Also, depends on the house advantage for each game and how many hands per hour is played for the typical game. Wizard of Odds has a great page that discusses how comp value of certain table games is calculated.

    The "Hands per hour,house edge for comp purposes" section is the part I'm talking about. http://wizardofodds.com/gambling/house-edge/

    As far as how MGM properties calculate theo for ADT purposes on table games, I think it's going to be similar to all the other casinos. I don't remember any members here complaining about it or finding out that they had some wacky really low theo calc for a specific game.

    Last year, MLife eliminated earnings of Express Comps for table play, that was an obviously negative development.

    As far as TCs, several members here have calculated that TCs for table games are given at roughly the same rate as slots - somewhere around 30 to 33 TCs per $1 of theo per hour. That probably hasn't changed. So the most important thing is to make sure the box rates you fairly for each session.

    If you play mostly slots, you still should get yourself rated for every table session, even if it's at a low average bet - it's still additive to your ADT.

    I love the Mirage and have always been taken care of.
    Last 4 out 5 trips I made over 18K playing Blackjack

    Same hours of play as previous trips but they were stingy when I went over the 500 food and beverage credit as when trips where I had losing trips
    They would comp everything

    Anyone else experience anything like that?
