I was stuck in Randomtownsville, NJ on Saturday for work and had a day to kill, so I just played online while watching college football. (have to say I enjoyed how calm my gaming atmosphere was, if Nevada added online gaming I’d give a decent amount of my play to online gambling while sitting in my room haha) Anyway, I played at the Tropicana Online Casino and put through just over $40,000 in bets in blackjack (house edge was about .36%). I read on their website that you earn tier credits for the land-based Trop AC while playing online, so I thought, “I wonder how close I’ll get to advancing a tier”. You need 4,000 credits at the land based casino to get to Copper (which is like Pearl for mLife- means very little). I figured my play would put me close. After all, this would net 4,000 points from videoblackjack at any mLife property (worth $40 in pointplay and $40 in express comps). I logged into and saw they gave me…..298 points and $.65 in comps. I was amazed. They seem to not actually want any online play. They’d want about $530,000 in blackjack bets to give me the worthless 2nd tier. That’s about $600 in bets online per penny in comps. In all this rambling and ranting, here is the bottom line: My theo for the day was about $150 and they gave me 65 cents. I’ve got to be missing something…was the online gaming segment added just to get addicts to play and not build a client base?
