Re: Diamond in a Day - CET Total Rewards

Am I correct in assuming that Diamond Celebration dinners are still deducted from your card $100 at a time? Seems like they could let you just use what you use and save the rest since it's now just auto loaded on your card. The gf and I should have $400 between the 2 of us and plan to go crazy tonight, lol. I'd hate to burn one of the dinners if our total is like $205 or something though.

Yes but in a case like that just tell them to use 2 celebration dinners and pay the $5 with tier credits or cash or charge to room or whatever.

Re: Diamond in a Day - CET Total Rewards

It's about a month old now, but for whoever asked: you definitely can use the $600 airfare or $1200 airfare for a spouse/partner/friend whatever with you. And, even though it says it is for a coach ticket, I've used it for first class many times without issue and even my host has told me to book first class with it.

(so many dealt 3 of a kind and never converted to quads, and this is 5 play!)
stupid negative variance
Bonus poker isn't .9983
Bonus poker is .9917 but you got the correct avg loss so looks like you typo.

Variance is higher on bonus poker as you gotta hit the 4OAK.

Where did you find this machine? That's a pretty good find.

If you could find the Super double times pay - that adds more variance but also increases your ROI. Video poker is one of the only games where playing more credits continues to increase your ROI.

8/5 Bonus Poker has a 99.17% payback percentage, but it increases to 99.67% with the Double Super Times Pay feature activated.

They used to have this game at MGM national harbor in the high limit room. They disabled the machine one day and it was a 7/5 machine when the turned it back on.

Re: Diamond in a Day - CET Total Rewards

Apologies if this has been already noted in this thread (I don't think so), but I benefitted from this thread a few years ago and want to pay it forward. Recently Barclays started a Wyndham Rewards Business card that confers diamond status for a 95 dollar annual fee. You can convert this directly to diamond status at Caesars. Also, there is s sign up bonus for 45,000 points which can also be transferred. So this gives diamond status for approximately -350

Re: Diamond in a Day - CET Total Rewards

Has anyone had their bonus Tier Credits from the recent 5x promotion post to their account yet?

On my recent Vegas trip I couldn't find any 99.x% games and had to play 98.x% games. This will probably be my last year of chasing Diamond on vp.

I started out on a Super Times Play machine and was beaten like a red-headed stepchild. If I had stuck with that machine it would've cost me well over ten grand to get my 2500 tc.

That's what the email they sent me said.

I haven't but I am part of another forum and I would say like 20-25% of people there have received the credit and 75-80% haven't. Allegedly supposed to be done by end of April.
