You just have to decide whether you are in or you are out. You cannot just take FP some days and try to maintain other days, it will not work.



Easiest outcome for me is the freeplay does not stick. That would simplify matters. Unfortunately things aren't always easy when it comes to gambling.

The freeplay not sticking is not the easiest outcome

You have cost yourself more than you think with this experiment

Unfortunately no one here including myself is going to explain why

Its one of those situations that people in the know keep quiet about

That's ok. Sometimes people have to learn things for themselves. I'd rather experiment now in the beginning of the year before I settle into what winning or losing is going to happen.

I just feel like sharing the experience for those who may find it useful, amusing, or something else completely.

Mystery solved. The $150 is gone as of this morning which does in fact simplify matters. If I did hurt my daily average I suppose I can just play more the next few times I go to make up for it.

Posting this a day late.


So, Saturday January 5th was another mystery freeplay day. I wasn't able to get to bed until 11pm the night before. I set my alarm for 3am. I figured I would get to the casino by 6am and play for 6 or 7 hours before heading to work. Well, when the alarm went off I rolled over and said screw that, I need more sleep. So I went back to sleep and woke up around 8am. Now I figured it was too late to go gambling as the machines would surely be booked. At 9am I logged on to see what I was missing on freeplay. Much to my chagrin it was $350! Well, I just had to go to at least collect the freeplay. Average daily coin in be damned!

I get there a little before 11am and to my surprise both machines were empty. So I went ahead and started playing both and got the following jackpots in the next 3.5 hours.

Jackpot 4, January 5th, 2019


Jackpot 5, January 5th, 2019


Proceeded to do my freeplay (which was an awful return) then went straight to work where I proceeded to be bored all night and kept browsing these forums.

I put in $77,721 coin in which was 3,701 deals.

So that would mean 3 visits (I'm counting the visit with no play in this in case it matters) with total coin in $193,032 for an average of $64,344 a visit.

For your card level, is $65k coin in per visit good, bad or sufficient? I have no idea, Iím just curious.

Iím enjoying this thread btw.

I don't really know what a good coin in per visit total would be. Others here know more about the ways of coin in than I do. I'm just gonna post it as a frame of reference so it may come in handy somewhere down the road.

Glad your enjoying it.

Oh, and as for Noir status, when I get to 2 million tier credits my host will submit my name for being voted on.

I am currently at 1,246,320 tier credits. I have earned those since the reset on October 1st. So I will probably get to 2 million within the next 3 months it is safe to say. Unless of course I run out of money. :) Could go either way I suppose. Good news is I will be buying a new car tomorrow as my current one will need too many repairs to pass inspection. Not worth investing any more money in it. So MGM will not see at least 30k of there money back. So if I do crash and burn this year I will have at least gotten a new car out of this 2 year odyssey. No regrets either way.

P.S. Don't worry about Uncle Sam, I set aside his cut which he will get it April 15th and not a day sooner.
