Yeah, they totally screwed themselves on this promotion I think. Such a low qualifying requirement with the single point opened things up to abuse pretty easily. Upping it to something like 25 Tier Points in each location could have saved them tons of money. That being said, I probably still do the promotion with even a slightly higher requirement.
And c'mon Barbiaux, spend your points on a hotel in Vegas or something! I've already done this twice in the past 6 months and still have 30k points left!
And once you get there then either go to Casino Royale or off the strip for better video poker than LOL Caesars. Or if you're looking to possibly get decent comps for a future visit from video poker play, grind full pay JoB, Bonus, or DDB for quarters at NY NY using an Mlife card from MGM. MGM properties are generally nicer looking anyway...lol
The best video poker machine I have found at a Caesar's property for quarters or less is 7/5 Bonus Poker (98%) at multiple locations. Imperial Palace has a Super Times Pay version (as part of an "All-Star Poker" machine) that pays slightly better and even lets you play nickels. So that is what my poor ass was doing for a reasonable chunk of the last trip.
