    I have been playing vp for years. Usually 8-10 hours per day. How do I know what my coin in is as opposed to the actual amount I put in?

    Use your Player's Club card.
    It will accumulate and track your play.
    The amount periodically scrolls across the led panel.
    Ask the casino for the $ amount per credit for video poker (it differs from slots).
    Usually its like $10 per point on VP.
    So, if it scrolls across to read "Hi Miller12pack, you currently have 500 RC points." or something like that then you can do the math.
    500 * $10 = $5,000 coin in.
    (This is my understanding of it.)

    If I understand correctly, using CET as an example, $5 dollar coin in in slots equals 1 RC and 1 TC, then achieving Platinum (5000 pts.) = $25,000 coin in, and Diamond ( 15,000 pts. ) = $75,000. Not counting the bonuses that CET offers.

    "coin in" is the amount you play through the machine. So if you're max betting quarters, every hand you play is $1.25 coin-in. So every 1000 hands would be $1250 coin-in, 2000 hands would be $2500 coin-in, etc.

    And as others have said, if you play exclusively VP, you can figure out your coin-in by the number of player points you earn that day. Every casino is different about how many dollars of "coin-in" equals a point, so keep that in mind. VP is $10 a point at D for example. So if you earned 500 points in a day, that would be $5000 coin-in.

    And while staying at the D, if you gamble at a Boyd casino, it is $1 coin-in equals 1 point.

    At some of the MGM properties some of the newer "brand name" slots actually take $10 per point. But there will usually be small sign on the front of the machine indicating this.
