Do you know what could have caused the difference? And also, does Total Rewards Diamond Card equate to Gold or to Platinum on MGM tiers?
I would imagine they transferred players based on tier credits (and/or other metrics), so some of your friends had a higher rating than you of whatever metrics they used. It's just that having Black guaranteed you Gold minimum regardless of other factors.

There's no direct correlation since TR has 4 cards and MLife has 5. But I'd say TR Diamond base is close to Gold and the Diamond aspiration levels get you close to Platinum.

Years ago when Foxwoods went from a 4 to 5 card system (I'll use TR/Mlife names for understanding), TR Gold, Platinum, and 7stars became Mlife Sapphire, Pearl, and Noir. Some TR Diamonds became Mlife Gold, others Platinum. It mostly depended on how far along you were to 7stars, but some other factors came into play as well. I'm sure a similar practice was implemented here.

Re: Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa (Atlantic City, NJ) -- FAQ in OP, updated 2016.02.13

That would make sense. The reason I asked about the correlation there is because I was not a natural Black Card. I always got the Black Card via an upgrade from my CET Diamond card.

Essentially, I only come to Borg 5-6 times a year, so I got a decent theoretical (since when I come, I do play decent hours), but obviously was no where close to $1,000 comp dollars a year or whatever MGM tier credit number is used. Wonder if they'll keep recognizing CET statuses in future years? I guess we will have to wait and see.

How're the 2/5 players at borgata?ill be down there Saturday/Sunday. Been killing the 1/2 and 1/3 games, so I'm gonna take a shot and just see how I compare to the players at those stakes.

Depends on the table tbh, most regs will be better than 1/3 at making hero folds. Stay away from 2/5 deep as the players tend to be better.

Borg 2/5 plays about as big as 1/3 in Harrahs Philadelphia (due to the same 500 max).

I got my "new" MLife card today from Borgata which of course was a different account number than my existing MLife account...did they do any cross-checking at all for that? Guess I'll have to rectify that next time I go down there.

Also I ended up with a different mlife number but was able to call customer service to get the accounts merged. Took about 15 minutes.

Are the higher stakes games dead during WSOP? Looking on Bravo and the highest limits are 2/5NL this week. Same for Sands PA.

Deciding whether it's worth it to make a trip to Borgata in two weeks.

During the week this is pretty typical even during non wsop time. AC is a weekend town. I don't know how big you want to play or what games, but 5/10 NL is a regular game on Fri-Sun even during the series, and occasionally 10:20 will go. Big PLO seems to have slowed down since the series started, but should still have a good chance of 5/10.

And the really big mixed games are still running. Seen 150:300 stud as well as the 200/400 (I think) mixed running recently (again, on weekends).

Do tier credits work the same way at Borgata as for mlife properties in Vegas? Do you need 500 base points (i.e. 5,000 tier credits) in a day before you earn any tier credits? I didn't think there was any minimum in Vegas.

That sounds right IF we started earning Tier Credits around the beginning of May. And that'd make it 75 TCs per comp dollar.

The letter that came with my new card (delivered at home while I was at Borgata last Saturday) said they were giving me a bit over 13000 TCs for my play since October 1. Now I have a bit over 17000. That's too much to be just from last weekend (11.5 hours), but counting two 12-hour days in May, 4000/35.5 comes out about right.

Tier Credits haven't made it to theborgata.com yet, but mlife.com has the numbers. I'll probably be 6 hours or so short of Pearl by 9/30...but Pearl vs Sapphire doesn't add much, so I guess it doesn't matter.

Recent msgs imply people are able to see their acct info in the website. I keep getting an under construction type message when trying to register. Wondering if it is because i am using IOS? Any insights will be appreciated.

Was at the hotel yesterday and no one at m life desk admitted to anything other than This section of the site is a problem they hope to have fixed soon.

Looks like all my weekend offers went away after switching to Mlife. It's a shame too since I have no reason to come back to Borgata now =(

So how many hours of $1/2 does it take to get a room offer at Borgata these days? Back in the day if you played like 8 hours you got one but I know times have changed...

I heard 15 hours in one trip?

Mine is still good and I only make one trip every two months here (18-25 hours each trip)
