    Just got this mailer in and I thought it was nice to see.

    1 tier credit and 1 reward credit for every $10 wagered on sports seems like an ok deal. Especially if you normally are throwing around descent money at the sportsbook already.

    1 credit for every $3 wagered on the horses seems like a pretty good deal too. A couple of hours and that could add up quick.

    I always thought they were super stingy on giving back comps for play at the sports book. Drink tickets were about all I thought they would give back.

    That seems weird if they only gave the credits at these 5 books though.

    I'm going to have to check my account. I thought I got points betting horses at harrahs vegas a couple weeks ago.

    if not, next time i'll play at linq... over an afternoon betting santa anita i could rack up some decent points

    I don't think this is new. I know I have gotten credit for sports bets at CP and PHo for years

    The horses I think I’ve gotten credits at. Don’t know that it was 3:1.

    I’ve done quite a bit of non horse sports betting and don’t remember getting anything before. In fact, the clerks would say they don’t want my card.

    Yeah perhaps the earn rates have changed, not sure what they used to be, but you've always earned tier credits for betting sports.

    I am not sure about the above quoted rate for horses, but the quoted rate for sports is the same as it has been for years

    Any idea if this includes mobile betting? I’ve only used the William Hill app... not the CET one.

    I don't know but I also don't see any reason why you wouldn't earn comps mobile betting

    Me either. But I've never used the app, so I wasn't sure if you're able to link a TR number in the app or what...

    But it wasn't at $10 a point.

    It used to be at $200 a point for sports iirc. Now they are putting sports and horse racing wagers more in line with slot/VP/table games for tier/reward credit earning.

    I noticed getting $10 a point for sports on my account in early 2017 when I spent a weekend betting a lot of basketball. I remember too when it was $200 a point (because of one unfortunate large bet on an NFL playoff game, lol). Maybe it switched back for a while. I don't pay attention to my stats unless I am betting big

    And now you've got me regretting @tringlomane that I didn't track what credit I was receiving for my bets on the May/McG fight last year. I ended up making five figures worth of wagers on that fight. But I made several bets (all at different CET books) over the course of a few trips that summer leading up to the fight. none of the individual bets were enough to motivate me to check what credits and points I was receiving. But I sure would have checked had I made all those bets at once, lol
