    I think he is fine. He usually does this in all his trip reports. Many days of silence.

    Sorry everybody, my head hasn't really been in the right place and I haven't really been doing anything interesting to report, just hitting the casino from about 6:00 - 8:00am each morning.

    First ever triple DD at $5 denom, and had one other handpay on the same machine at Aria.
    upload_2020-10-13_21-36-13.jpeg

    One thing I was looking for was the change in the ExpressComps earning rate. I played 90% of my coin in on that $5 DD machine and they're only giving ECs at roughly half of the old rate.

    upload_2020-10-13_21-55-7.png

    Points are still $3 per. I'm not sure why I got 2,299 points the first day instead of only 2,142, but there's usually a small mismatch there anyway.

    But whatever, you used to get one cent in ECs for each point, plus a tier bonus (10% for Pearl, which I was on the first day).

    So the old calc would be $22.99 plus another 10%, for a total of $25.29. And it looks like I got right around half of that.

    I can tell I got a higher ratio for a few hours of Cleo II at quarters, but even that was definitely less than the old rate.

    But lucky trip overall at Aria.

    I'll do a quick wrap up when I get home in a couple days.

    Nice hand pay bud. That must have been a nice wake up call for you during one of your early morning slot sessions. Way to go. :clap::clap::clap:

    Maybe they went to a system where ECs are awarded by theo? I know they were supposed to for VP at least.

    Congrats on the DD jackpot!

    Nice hits at Aria! So did you end up staying at Vdara for the 2nd half of the trip? Thinking of trying them in March, depending on the Black Friday sales. Keep winning!
     
    Best friend's 50th bash! Longest trip yet!
