    On Boyd account I see slot points, then table points, then card points. I see 0 for table points. Is this normal? can't find anything on search. Considering much of my time is on tables.

    Table points is normally how much comp dollars you have 1,000 Pts =$1 comp. at least that's how it is in Biloxi. And if using for food, you get 1/2 off, so 1k points=$2 food

    Different in Vegas - those are slot points on my bconnected page 9600 slot poits (I know 600 per $1 for food - $1 per dollar otherwise), next line is slot points =0 next line card points =38,000. Just wondering what the middle number is

    Slot points = 9600
    Table Points =0
    card score = 38,xxx which is sapphire level

    Great question. The only Boyd property I've gotten table points is IP Biloxi. When ever I've used points for say a meal, those are the first to be used. My be bconnected card always carry's a balance of 3 or 4 table points.

    I have table points because I've played table games in Shreveport, Louisiana at Sam's Town and there they separate the points out. A few years ago I could only use the table points in Shreveport for comps - the hosts in Vegas couldn't even see them on my account. Now fortunately they can be used everywhere. When I use my points for comps in Vegas, the table points are the first to be taken.

    I got table points from playing live poker at Suncoast twice in 2015 for about 9.5 hours total. Guy at table told me they offered $1.25 worth of food per hour of play (750 table points/hr), which sounds right from my data. And I need to use some boyd comps in Tunica eventually (double for food)...I still have some of those table points left.

    Maybe playing casino tables in Vegas increases just the slot point balance? Or do they not offer points period on casino tables?

    Playing tables in Vegas does not add to your slot points, but does add to your card score. Don't know how they figure it out though, but would assume play x$ per hour(hand) = points.
