    I play mostly vp, but I don't know how to figure my coin in. When I put my card in and my name appears, are those numbers coin in, or tier credits? Also, do they start over every day? Is it possible to just ask at the players club? I have been going to Vegas for years, and never paid attention to the numbers. I know I play enough to get free rooms, but I would be interested to know my daily coin in.

    Depending on which property you are playing at, the terminology might be slightly different. For CET properties, you have Tier score and Rewards Credits. Tier score is used to get your status (Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Seven Star). The Rewards Credits show how much comp points you have earned which you could redeem to pay or purchase stuff. I don't believe it shows the coin in but some show a countdown on how much you still need to play in order to get the next Tier point. For VP, I believe it's about $10 coin in to get 1 Tier point.

    Well, with Boyd, a dollar in is a dollar coin-in.

    I do most of my gambling at The D. I have been playing some at MSS also to try to get on their mailing list, but so far nothing.

    If you have a Boyd card, you could create an account on their website and see if you have any offers. Sometimes this is quicker than waiting for their mailers. Also, you will be able to see the points you have accumulated so far. I don't think you would be able to figure out your coin-in from your account though. I dont know if the D has anything like this on their website.
     
    Maybe not this year. Looking forward to 2021!

    at Boyd's I don't think it takes too much coin in to generate some offers. but it may take a few months before they get around to it.

    I just clicked off of this thread, scrolled down a bit and saw a thread about the D web page and logging into your account! Nice!!

    I wonder how MSS evaluates coin-in on certain VP machines which are $3 coin in per point.

    So, yeah, one way to know coin in is to understand how many $ per point, and what the meters mean on the machine, plus taking a read on things at the beginning of your stay / day / session, and figuring it out.

    Another way is to go to the slot club at the end of your stay and ask. Or if you are torn-kneeing a host to get comps, you can ask them.

    Another way is off the casino website - Boyd, for example, has a handy dandy graph that shows your coin in by month. And MILF shows win/loss by property for the year, so if you grab a snap of that at the beginning of your trip, you can figure out what you've played.

    If you are serious about getting the right amount of comps for your play, this is critical information.

    I think you just answered your own question. On the floor there are certain machines that do require $3 in for one point. They used to have little signs stating that.

    I take a pic of my site on Mlife, win/loss by quarter. And if I really wanted to know how much MORE I lost per day or weekend, I'd just go to the Mlife desk, or ask my host. I do'n't really need to know as it's been fugly for the last couple years. Hopefully 2017 will look better, however my January trip was a loss.

    Or you could just count the number of times you hit spin/deal and multiply by your bet. That's your coin in.

    I guess that I did if they use coin-in as a measure of play instead of points earned like the Four Queens does. For example, if you earned 1000 points playing 9/6 JOB then you would earn 500 points playing 10/7 DB with the same amount of coin-in. The Four Queens will use the points earned as their evaluation and not coin-in.
