    Generally on the day I check out, I only play a few final slots or throw a couple bucks down at a table. Since my play on this last day is next to nothing, I NEVER use my Mlife card. I would not want it to appear like I play less per day than I actually do.

    However, looking back I have always used my Mlife card (to earn tier credits) for that final meal after check out on the last day. Would using my Mlife card to earn tier credits show that I am still in town for this day (but with no activity in the casino) that would be considered a no play day?

    I've seen this topic recently on another thread and it appears that MGM Resorts considers checkout a triggering event so it shows up as a gaming day whether you play or not. Since the MGM Resorts gaming day begins at 5 or 6 am, check out (11 am or so) usually falls within a new gaming day. I'm sure there are other VMBers with insight to the nuances of protecting your rating on that last gaming day. Good luck.

    you're doing it wrong.

    Mlife isn't like CET that worries about gaming days.

    your trip is your trip regardless of whether you play on check-in day or checkout day or any day in between.

    Think about it like this...

    If the casino KNOWS you are on their property, then they expect you to play. So check-in, check-out, or using your card for a meal indicates you are there, so they count that as a gaming day.

    But, like shifter said, MLife doesn't really use ADT like CET does...MLife uses total trip theo mainly

    Somebody needs to put some examples with numbers on the MLife Trip theory.

    As I understand it, and repeated here often:

    CET does a gaming DAY, ending at 5 or 6am. Whatever.

    MLIFE does a gaming TRIP. Multiple days so one small day does not mean anything.

    If mlife player A has 5k theo and a 1 night stay, and player B has $5k theo and a 5 night stay, mlife can't value them the same?? At CET, back end comps will be a percentage of theo. Future offers will be based on ADT.
    What does mlife do?
