Does anyone know for sure. I have 100k points between 2 cards. If I play at Cleveland this month, would the new place end up giving me 100k as well?



If I was advising the casino I would tell them to match the unused percentage of points that you accumulated at those three properties. I would not match the points earned at other casinos.

That is exactly what I would do. That is why I had posed the question, if anyone knew what normally happened.

Hopefully they will not ask for your advise. If they do, then charge them for it ;-!

Penn Gaming definitely did NOT do that for St. Louis. I'm not sure if that was out of generosity, or CET systems wouldn't make it clear that what credits where earned/used where. I would assume the latter info would be available, however, it might be more difficult to ascertain and transfer than just to "garbage in/garbage out" the total remaining balance.

I wonder what the long term strategy of Rock Gaming LLC is.

For example, does Dan Gilbert envision building his own Casino Empire by picking up misc CET properties in the future at fire-sale prices ? Does RG LLC need to fully disassociated with CET in order to do that ?

I thought it was a good corporate match in the beginning for them to be associated with the CET rewards program.

Has anyone been to Jack yet? When they announced the sale they said they were going to convert points. We both received our packets in the mail and today I finally logged into online account. We have 64,000 points. I am wondering if those can be converted to free play or if it is just a tier point that means nothing? Any ideas?

I've been Jack. I cleared out all my CET points down to zero before the switch. They put me at the "King" level card. (Highest level - goes J-A-C-K). Not sure what that gets me but I do earn comps at 3x the normal rate. Played $10 UTH for 1.75 hours and earned $12 in comps, which was nice. $3=$1 in Free Play.

The Diamond Lounge is now called The Library but it is literally exactly the same otherwise.

Really nothing has changed except they got rid of all the Horseshoe Stuff and went to 10x odds (from 100x) on craps.

I don't think that will impact my game at all.

So this is an indication of where they are headed ? Then I'm glad that Spirit and Frontier are both flying from that market to Las Wages.

I believe they have also increased the amount of play time required to earn free parking in the garage. Not a huge deal if you're going to be there awhile, but just one of those little signs that JACK is not planning on bringing more people in by offering better perks and better games, paytables, etc. compared to Horseshoe... which wasn't terribly great to start with.
