JACK Cleveland is giving total rewards members equal credit for the RC's they have on their TR card when they sign up for the JACK card, and you don't lose the RC's you have accumulated from the TR program.

I played at the Cleveland Horseshoe quite a bit, and almost all my TR pay was done at the Cleveland Horseshoe.

I had the exact amount (rounded up to the next dollar) added to my JACK card, and still have the points on my TR card.

I have a friend from Chicago who played at the Cleveland Horseshoe, maybe twice a year, for the four years it has been open, but is a Diamond member based on his play at other TR casinos, and all his points transferred.

If you have an assload of points, and plan on being near tropical Cleveland Ohio, you might find it in your interest to grab a JACK card, even if you just piss it away on on some crap slots or VP plays.

According to my host, the free transition will be allowed until Aug 7th.

A buddy I visit in that area sometimes told me about this (he wanted my opinion). I asked the conversion rate, and he said it's garbage, like 30%. So if you have $1,000 in comp dollars, you can get $300 in play. I'd rather blow them spending them in Vegas getting a $200 massage, eating the Bachnal Buffet every day, etc, than give up 70% of the value.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

So this is only applicable to RCs earned at the old Horseshoe Cleveland? How would they verify your RC balance?

I know Seven Stars players with $10K in RCs (earned through 10X RC multiplier days)- is it worth a trip for them?

I still don't understand your point. You can still use the TR RC for massages and buffets and shows. That is only impacted by this offer insofar as you need to go to Jack and do the match before going nuts in Vegas. Wouldn't really take much planning to make both things happen, would it?

Almost all of my Total Reward's play was done at the Horseshoe Cleveland. Like 90%+. All of my RC's converted at a rate of $1 per 100 RC's and they rounded me up to the next dollar. Same as if I had wanted to spend the points as RC points.

My buddy is almost the exact opposite. His play is 95%+ OUTSIDE of Horseshoe Cleveland (or any other JACK property for that matter) and all of his RC's transferred to the JACK point system at the same $1 per 100 points as mine did.

I, however, do NOT know what would happen if a TR member who had NEVER gambled at the Horseshoe Cleveland, or if they had not gambled there for a long time, would fair if/when they tried to get the free points on a new JACK card.

Correct, your TR RC's say on that card and can be used at any location that accepts them.

You get the dollar equivalent of JACK points that will essentially double your points, but one set has to be used at a TR location, and the other at a JACK location.

I'm not sure about a lot because clearly I haven't been to the area, but he said he attempted to convert his JACK comp dollars (which were his copied over Horseshoe dollars) to free play and it was 30%... so that I believe 100%.
