What if you want to put $100 in a machine, and keep all the winnings that come off of that $100, and stop playing when you have played the $100? Is there any way to keep track other than just manually counting the number of spins/turns/etc.?

I take it that means that for a given machine, the points/dollars conversion is constant?

Yes. You can check with a slot attendant if you're not sure.

For example, Caesars TR, slot machines are all $5 coin in for each point and video poker machines are $10 coin in per point.
There is somewhere online that gives coin in/ points for all casinos. It may be on the American Casino Guide site.

Ohhhh that does not apply to Gold Coast and probably other Boyd Properties. They give points based on wins not coins dropped.

Not any more Evan. They changed to the more accepted method a while ago.

Pebbles is right here, but not to get more complicated, but some Caesars slots (LOR, licensed style slots) earn points at the VP rate of $10 coin in for 1 point.

And its not just CET... MGM does the same thing with licensed slot machines. Reason: the machines will have a similar payback to other slots on the casino floor but the casino has to share part of what the machine takes in with the license holder.

For the OP: if its $100 in free play you are talking about and you don't want to run any more through a machine than you have to at some properties they'll have a freeplay remaining countdown on the screen or on the card reader telling you how much left to go.

I think I might have mixed up Caesars and MGM here. I believe it's actually only MGM that does this, for some reason I was thinking it was Caesars, but I'm pretty sure I was wrong.
