Over the last year I have had many jackpots playing DSTP. For 2019, I thought it might be fun to post every jackpot I get here in this thread. I find DSTP has such a wide range of possibilities to get a jackpot. Ranging from holding a single card to getting a dealt royal flush both with and without multipliers. Hope you all enjoy.


Jackpot 1, January 1st, 2019
$2,500


Jackpot 2, January 1st, 2019
$2,000


Jackpot 3, January 1st, 2019
$2,005

So did you get your full $2500 and those are on freeplay? That would make it doubly sweet.

You seemed to have some question about whether you'd made the comp threshold.

I did freeplay after these jackpots. I won't discuss wins or losses as there are wild swings with this game. 3 jackpots in one trip do not always indicate a winning day. I have had winning trips with less jackpots than 3 in the past. Likewise I have had losing trips with more than 3. It all comes down to how far apart they come as well as multipliers on lesser payouts I may or may not get.

In 2018 I have had winning trips with no jackpots and losing ones with far more than 3.

I made the comp threshold. That was the first thing I checked. I prefer do to freeplay as the last thing I do before leaving so I always leave with money in my pocket no matter how the regular gambling goes. .

I was going to check and forgot. I will post pictures of all the paytables if I can remember to take them the next time i go. Since this is a new year I have no reason to go more than once a week. I think I won't be going back until January 8th as they have a slot point multiplier that day which is suppose to range from 5x to 19x for me. They also have a kiosk game on the 6th which us a guaranteed minimum of $50 freeplay. But my weekly freeplay doesn't start until Monday so I'm not sure if I will go on Sunday or not. I'd like to try to maintain a high coin in per trip this year to see how high my weekly freeplay will get. I'm afraid that going on Sunday just for freeplay might hurt that average.

Normally 1000 slot points would $10 in freeplay and I would get that from $35,000 coin in. I'm suppose to get a 30% bonus on this due to platinum status. That equates to .037% add that to the 99.48% return makes it 99.517% I'm not sure how that will stack with this multiplier on Tuesday. But multiply the base earned by at least 5x should be at least $50 in freeplay. So that would add .14% to the return making it 99.62% minimum. Nothing to write home about but at 19x that would be $190 in freeplay earned for $35,000 coin in. That would add .542% to the return making it 100.042% return. Again, nothing earth shattering but it's better than nothing.

If I get 19x would I play the crap out of it? Probably not. I like to play based on time spent playing and prefer to end on a high note. Meaning when I decide to stop it's usually right after hitting a jackpot. On the 1st, I stopped after hitting the second 4 AWAK. I had been there about 6 hours and it seemed like a good point to stop.

Got those 3 jackpots in 5352 deals so that would be 16056 hands.

Anyone know how mlife would calculate weekly freeplay? I'm particularly curious how far back it tracks your play say 3 to 6 months? Also does it take into account coin in per trip, per week, per month or some other variable? My weekly freeplay jumped substantially this January. Coincidentally my play increased drastically at the end of September thru the end of the year. I'm curious to see if I can boost it more by limiting my trips and when I go really play alot. I use to go on freeplay collection days and may or may not have played on those days.

I'm staring at several freeplay collection days this month beyond my weekly allotment and am up in the air if I should go for every one or if it would hurt my weekly allotment down the road. .

Could a moderator please change the title of this thread to something like Cmlotito's 2019 Gambling Adventure.

In addition to posting my jackpot pictures this year I thought people might find it interesting to read stuff like this:

MGM National Harbor this month, January 2019, has 4 Mystery Free Play days. January 3,5,19, and 26th. This month my mystery freeplay each day ranges from $60 to $10,000. The only way to find out is to insert your card into a slot machine there and it will tell you. Well, not so fast. I discovered last year that if I log onto the M Life website the day of the mystery freeplay that it will show on my account how much I will get if I go to the casino. Mystery solved. However, the free play must be used that day or it will disappear at midnight.

But wait, today I had a thought. I know, dont hurt myself. I logged in this morning and saw I would get $150 in freeplay today. My problem though is i dont have time today to play a lot and I'm afraid if i only collect my freeplay that it could hurt my weekly freeplay I'm getting down the road. I still dont know how that is calculated. Is it all coin in over a month or based on a per trip average? Still looking into that.

So what I thought I would try today was to go there and insert my card then activate my freeplay like I was going to play but then remove my card without actually playing. Here is my train of thought. In the past I have converted my slot points to freeplay but never used them all and noticed the freeplay from the points was still on my account days later. Would this work with mystery freeplay if it was activated like my points were but not actually used?

I will find out tomorrow when I check online and see if the $150 is still there.

Am I concerned I may have wasted $150 in freeplay? A little bit. But I think it is worth the risk to know for sure if this will work or not.

If it does work then I will go on the 5th to activate that days mystery freeplay and play next Tuesday on the slot point multiplier day for a large amount of coin in that day.

If it doesn't then I will need to figure out how the weekly freeplay is calculated.

Hope some of you found this interesting.

I'm not sure how MGM National Harbor works, but I would think it possible that just swiping to activate your freeplay may trigger a gaming day. This may be an issue if you are looking to keep your ADT up.
