    I was tooling around BConned online the other day trying to plan a trip.

    I saw this under promotions at the Suncoast:

    2X FASTER TIER CREDITS
    Earn Tier Credits
    2X FASTER* or more!

    Only at Suncoast Hotel & Casino

    Ask our friendly slot team for details and location

    DISCLAIMER
    *Tier Credits earned faster than other on other machines, same game type.


    This made absolutely no sense to me.

    So I fired off this message to them through the "contact us" link:


    Can you please explain this promotion to me? I don't understand what this means, especially the disclaimer?

    Thanks in advance.

    2X FASTER TIER CREDITS
    Earn Tier Credits
    2X FASTER* or more!

    Only at Suncoast Hotel & Casino

    Ask our friendly slot team for details and location

    DISCLAIMER
    *Tier Credits earned faster than other on other machines, same game type.


    This was their answer:


    Thank you for visiting Suncoast and contacting us online.

    The 2X Tier Credit promotion allows slot players like you to earn Tier Credits at a faster rate on certain machines. The slots located near the escalator heading toward Bingo and those close to the Subway restaurant are marked for this promotion. Do not hesitate to speak with our slots team if you have questions locating these machines and contact me with any further questions you may have.

    Thank you again,
    Name Withheld
    Promotions Coordinator

    Well, this still makes no sense to me, so I fired off this reply:

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    Just to confirm, the machines that are part of this promotion are clearly marked?

    Is it slots only or are some video poker machines also included in the promotion?

    And this is what I got back:

    These are Video Poker machines that have signage that indicate that they are part of the promotion. Please speak with a floor person for assistance if you have an issue locating them.



    At this point, I gave up because she was giving me a headache.

    Your thoughts?

    Definitely a good politician. They talk a lot and say nothing.
    Evidently, they want you to come in and ask. That's all I got from the TWO responses. Yes, two responses and still they said nothing.

    Well, I have not seen the machines in question, but be aware nothing really may have changed since "same game type" could be, as an example Bonus Poker where one machine has an 8/5 pay scale and the other 7/5 or 6/5. Tier credits accumulate accordingly.

    I will for sure check the paytables!

    I have all the tier I need to maintain Sapphire, but my Mom needs quite a few to maintain and I thought we might accumulate faster if the paytables don’t suck.

    Too funny, I was going to start a similar thread.
    If they are offering *x points in September I was gonna hit the Suncoast one day next week, so it may be worth it.

    I've looked at these machines at the Suncoast. The reason they earn tier credits faster is that they have very low paytables.

    The Suncoast has 11x BConned points on Mon and Tue in Sept. I will probably check out the VP machines in question on Tue. 7/5 BP would be worth it with the extra points if they offer it.

    I've been waiting for them to post the September promotions. I'll have to get on Bconned and see what they are.

    We're staying at Suncoast for 8 nights and we will look for you!

    Much good luck on your trip!

    I hope the opening of Circa slaps some sense back into the suits at Boyd, at the least for the downtown properties. They'll crap their britches 20X the first time they watch a big group of Hawaiians walk into Circa!

    Well I found the VP machines.
    They had 7/5 BP and I banged out 1000 “daily points “. Kinda worth along with 11x BConned
