    I guess we'll let you join...
    Haha.

    9/5TDB DSTP is a bit better than that. 97.51%. And all comps are accumulated based on exact theo, so if keno is 91% return, that's 9% theo.

    As far as drink tickets go, they shouldn't be tied to your identity card at all. You'll be better off moving to a machine that's been empty for awhile if you're wanting to reset a drink meter.

    Here's to dealing with less Jeffery's in your future!

    Right...so if we assume that Cosmo's paytables for spot video keno have a return of 91%, that translates to a 9% theo. loss, or $9 of theo. for every $100 bet. Maybe I'm over-estimating, but my guess is that most penny slots on the strip have an average return of 87% - 90%, which would result in $13 - $10 of theo. for every $100 bet. Again, my mindset was to just play what I wanted to play and not focus on on theo. and comps. That said, given that TDB DSTP generates a relatively low theo. of 2% - 3%, my hope is that since the theo. for video keno is much more comparable to that of slots, time spent playing video keno helped offset some of the time that I wasn't playing slots.

    Also, good call on debunking my theory about re-inserting the Identity card to reset the point count. You're probably exactly right, and now that I think about it, there are players at Chandelier who play without an Identity card, yet they still receive drink tickets. So, as you mentioned, drink ticket timing is likely tied exclusively to activity on the machine, and not necessarily points earned within an Identity session.

    I never did have a chance to get in a session at Aria Sports Bar and meet "White Beard". I may need to add that to the agenda for the next trip!

    Bravo! Fantastic TR fine sir! Crazy stuff at Chandelier there on your last night!!! I myself witnessed an intoxicated female expose um, herself. during an early morning session on my 2017 summer trip. The bartenders weren’t as quick to call security...In fact, I don’t believe any action was taken at all. Seems like a double standard...???

    Wait, Diante is Ed?
    That's funny.
    I had to take a picture because I could not for the life of me remember his name. [​IMG]

    Yup, that’s Ed! He was sporting his Emad nametag when he served me that White Russian with a buzz button last year...

    Well, let’s just say that buzz buttons go much better with a Verbena than with a White Russian. It was an interesting experiment, but not one that I’m likely to try again!
