    Shoot. I was really hoping for an answer like "a couple of hours".

    Not bankroll related, but personal tolerance related... Playing even single line dollar VP, once I put that third hundy into the machine inside the first hour... I'd get really skittish.

    The best VP available to you at the quarter level on the strip at CET (full pay games!) are the Cromwell machines that only earn $50 a point. So you would need to play 100,000 hands for 2500TC. No way that's humanly possible. If you have a decent record with CET though, I doubt I would even put my card in on those Cromwell machines unless you planned on triggering a gaming day playing other games.

    If the machine earns full points, it would still be 20k hands, which is all day pounding the machine at nearly 1000 hands per hour (very difficult to do).

    Doing it over one day creates a higher ADT, but I'm not convinced that's a better thing here.

    It's certainly a bonus, though. If you'll be checking in a new member, and checking out a diamond member with a huge ADT, you're bound to get very good host attention for your next trip down.

    OP's coundown timers imply he's staying at Linq for 2 nights, so if he wants to get a total of 5,000 TCs and then stop, there won't end up being any difference in his ADT if he does it in one night vs two.

    Played for two days many hours per day. Left up about $1k. Crazy after nearly $6 k of taxable HP's. Think I got 5000 TC per day.

    Good point chuck, assuming he booked under his TR account. In my case if I don't, it only costs me a few bucks more a night on a weekday...:bang:

    This pic makes me particularly sick. This is my go-to game at TAG (same paytable at quarters+). I haven't hit Aces thru 4s on that game yet in over a dozen trips...:grrr: My only solace is I made that same miracle pull once while playing Super Aces once for 2000 credits in Tunica. Too bad that credit size was a nickel...doh.

    Nice run making diamond wccan!

    Ok, Tringlomane. DIAD would be best tried at which casinos for VP? What are your thoughts on best VP for an Mlife build up too?

    Champster. All of these were at Rio week before last. There were a half dozen more 4oak, but did not want to put the run of the mill stuff up. Tring, thanks. At Rio, that is my go to game as well. Every trip there I hit at least one four aces for $1200.

    What are the payouts on the high-limit slots? I imagine if you're playing $25 - $100 hands, then you'll be getting plat really quickly

    It's $5/TC unless specified different, so 5TC's for $25 and 20TC's for $100 on slots. FYI it's $10/TC on VP.

    To answer, who knows? I would suppose between 90-98% But I am guessing.

    If you go this route try a low volatility slot like Double Diamond because slots usually have less frequent wins than VP (but maybe bigger wins)

    He answered that in this thread.

    vpfree2.com lists all games at all casinos. Higher tier status at mlife is worth far less though than diamond at CET. No lounges, no instant resort fee removal unless you're at Noir. From personal experience I suspect that mgm casinos have the theo set extremely low on their decent VP.

    That's where I often get "eaten alive". I try the high limit slots for $300-$400+ and unless I hit a handpay or consistent smaller pays, I'm usually out with 100TC or less.

    Yeah it seems like BR for slots would need to be a lot more than for VP Jacks or Better or for Bonus Poker. Dollar for dollar.

    Yeah, for any other CET game other the 8/5 Bonus games at Rio, I think you have to play games that are a notch lower on the paytable for full points.

    That's unfortunate to hear about the theo settings at MLife, but not terribly surprising. I wonder how the theo settings are in BeeeJay Memorial Row.
