October 2016 Total Rewards Free Show List update

There have been a few changes over the past months. X Rocks at the Rio and Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding at Bally’s are no longer on the list. The Paul Zerdin show at Planet Hollywood has closed.   Other shows like Penn & Teller, Anthony Cools and Menopause The Musical are ‘sold out’ or have limited availability.

Total Rewards Daily Tier Credit Bonuses

In 2013, Total Rewards started a daily Tier Credit Bonuses program which gives you additional Tier Credits for earning certain amounts of Tier Credits in a single casino/gaming day (typically a 24 hour period between 6:00am one day and 5:59am the following morning. Check the Total Rewards desk for the hours at your casino just to be safe).

      • If you earn 500 Tier Credits in one day, you receive 125 bonus Tier Credits
      • If you earn 1000 Tier Credits in one day, you receive 1000 bonus Tier Credits
      • If you earn 2500 Tier Credits in one day, you receive 5000 bonus Tier Credits
      • If you earn 5000 Tier Credits in one day, you receive 10,000 bonus Tier Credits
        Only the highest bonus achieved is awarded.

Earning 2500 Tier Credits plus the 5000 bonus Tier Credits is enough to give you Platinum status in a single day. Earning  5000 Tier Credits plus the 10,000 bonus Tier Credits is enough to give you Diamond status in a single day.

Table Game Comp Rate Article

John Grochowski has written a great article on  comp  rates vs expected loss for blackjack, craps and roulette in Gaming and Destinations magazine. I highly recommend reading it.

Here is a brief snippet:

“Blackjack …[$10 wager per hand …  60 hands per hour].  … If the house assumed a 2 percent edge, then it would estimate your theoretical loss at $12. … At a 10 percent comp rate, a casino assuming a 2 percent edge sees an hour of your play as worth $1.20 in comps. If the assumption is a 1 percent edge, an hour’s comps for a $10 player come to only 60 cents.”

Please use the link below to read the full article which goes into further details about our expected loss, what the casino calculates as your theoretical loss, and what comps that may yield.
