How are "Return Rewards" at CET Casinos (AC) Calculated?

    I haven't seen a formula anywhere.

    I'm asking in part because on Sunday, March 12th and Sunday March, 19th there's a 6x Return Rewards promo at all of the AC CET casino AC CET for up to $3,500 in Return Rewards.

    On Sunday, March 26th the promo is 10x Reward Credits at the same casinos, with a cap at multiplying 10,000 Tier Credits (without the bonus). I've had 5,000 -- 8,000 (once 10,000) TC days so I'm looking at the 10x TC promo but 6x Return Rewards, depending on how RRs are calculated, may be more valuable.

    Thanks in advance.

    I doubt that it's a TC multiplier promotion.

    I'd have to SEE any TC multiplier day offers, since I find it hard to believe that AC would be offering 10xTC days.

    RCs, yes, but TCs, no. I will send an email to CET to have them clarify.

    On 3/26/2017, I have an offer at Bally's, Caesars and Harrahs AC and it implies 10X RC multiplier.

    "Earn your comps 10X faster! Swipe your Total Rewards card at a designated Promotional Kiosk Sunday, March 26, 2017 at Harrah's Resort, Bally's or Caesars Atlantic City from 10am - 11pm to activate your 10x multiplier."

    All 3 AC casinos state the same offer and doesn't state specifically, and I'm sure if I'd ask, they'll tell me. Nothing specifically about a TC multiplier. If there WERE a 10X TC multiplier, I'd consider flying (from California) to renew my 7*.

    I mistyped. Yes. What you ultimately get are reward credits but based on a base tier credits earned, before the bonuses, so 5,000 TC earned means 50,000 Reward Credits or $500 in comps earned on a 10x multiplier day.

    I've got the 10x multiplier down as they have been around for years. A multiplier on Return Rewards, however, is I believe relatively new.

    OK, I figured that, and since I'm a 99% slot player, it's easy.

    As I have discussed with many people, table games TC are 95% subjective and based on several things. (such as tipping the dealers and pit bosses)

    What games are you playing?

    IIRC, Return Rewards start at $5 in freeplay once you reach 75 tier credits in slots. Beyond that, I'm not sure. So easy math says 75 tier credits either gets you $30 in FP with the 6X or $7.50 in comps with a 10X multiplier. I actually get to try my luck with the mystery multiplier on the 23rd as either it doesn't work out to stay there on Thursdays (or Mondays with the kids in school), or I'm usually at Borgata on Thursdays. I actually did catch on of the Saturday multipliers once. If it's less than 10X I'll spend a normal amount and head to Borgata and/or Trop, but if it's more than that I'll be there for the duration. This year, I'm going to try and schedule as many days around multipliers as possible. Last year I got away from that, and maybe had two trips all year that took advantage of them.

    Good luck on your trip! Take the house down...just leave me a little!

    Thanks Harry Lyme. I did the same thing last year as well. There were a few -- but not many -- Reward Credit multipliers on weekends but I missed almost all of them. I got a 7x on a weekend in early February and earned almost 7,000 in TC that day, even before the bonus ,so it's nice to have earned 17,000 in TC that day, including the bonus, and about $500 in Reward Credits.

    I didn't even know the staring point for RR. I haven't been back to AC since I played a lot in early February but I'm thinking I'll have a few hundred dollars in Return Rewards but I can't see it online. Once I see that amount I hope I can do a rough calculation.

    And thanks for your good wishes. I'll leave you a little.

    DaiLun, in AC I play all machines; a mixture of VP and slots. I believe Return Rewards only applies to machine play. (I am thinking though at some point about playing tables in AC,especially after I hit 5,000 TCs on a non-multiplier day and I still feel like playing.)

    I could talk about table game ratings all night. Same bets, similar buy-ins, similar play lengths get me various kickback at different places. Over time, Borgata has treated me best, with Caesars and Harrah's, naturally, giving me better run of the rooms. On a local(er) level, Sugarhouse gives me squat, but Valley Forge gives me probably the best overall with rooms (no weekends, though), matchplay, and food comps. So how they figure it all out is a mystery and 100%, 95% subjective, haha.

    I thought Return Rewards was the same thing as Bounce backs, which I thought was a percentage of return of losses on your next trip. The deadline is generally based on the Casino that you stayed at. I believe Caesars AC is 8 weeks from the previous trip to that casino. In AC, you would go to offers and put in your pin and some god coins would come around and (never finishes successfully) however they end up in your bank then you down load them to you machine. I don't know how this happens on table play. I had this happen when I was in Caesars AC the weekend of Feb 24th.
    I would assume if you had 6X bounce bacon this trip and it was $100 it would be $600 RR nest trip within 8 weeks.
