Does anyone know if this same system will be used this Summer in Las Vegas?



Using crypto (stablecoins) would be extremely convenient for me.....but I was wondering if there is a different legality of doing this in Nevada as opposed to WSOP Paradise in The Bahamas......



Thanks in advance.
Kevmath said on a podcast this would not be an option because financial rules are different in US.

I happened to get the 2nd 11 nights at a decent rate so I am not keen to cancel it. But I can cancel it also if it makes sense.

But If I understand the above posts correctly - I can cancel the second booking. Book a 2 night stay at the end of my first 11 nights (at normal rate) and then I have a chance for additional random comps for a third booking of 9 nights?

Is that right?
I’m not going to tell you what you should do as interactions with Caesar’s booking system and reservation personnel is not a consistent thing. And the rates are constantly changing. Maybe it would be better to just keep things as they are and try a different way next time. But if I were trying to book 24 nights (or thereabouts) and maximize my comps, I would book 11 nights using my CR account and whatever discount promo there is (usually WSOP). Then skip 2 nights. And then book the remaining nights using the CR account and discount code. Lastly I would book the two nights in between without using my CR account.

There is a price to pay for this in that those two nights may be more expensive than they would otherwise be and you’ll pay about $100 more total for resort fees. So you have to figure out if the comps you get in that second leg are worth the extra cost. But if they are, and you make all three reservations at the same property, it should be seamless when you check in and can stay in the same room for the entire trip. Just make sure the counter agent knows you have three contiguous reservations. There was a time during Covid where they had this stupid policy of you having to go to the front desk to “check in” three separate times. But that is no longer the case, at least when I was there last summer.

Lastly, just to point out how CET has gotten demonstrably worse in recent years… this whole comp reset process is not as beneficial as it once was. Everybody’s comps and rates are customized based on their gaming rating, so I am only speaking from personal experience. But I have found the difference between comped nights and non comped nights to have really dwindled (typically as little as $15-25). So if you’re only saving the small amount, you have to have a lot of comps to make up for the increased rate and resort fees for those two “reset” nights. Also resort fees have nearly doubled in the last 5 years or so. So again, this “trick” is not nearly as useful as it once was. As an example, two years ago I booked 28 nights and there was no benefit to using the trick.

Stringer - Akashenk has laid it out very well. I will add that calling direct to the Horseshoe can also at times give you the best deal. I personally have ran into the 48 hour issues when booking online and opt for 72 hours. Checking often can be key to getting the best deal as Asashenk notes as rates are constantly changing and whether it is accurate or not I have read several accounts that this partially can be a browser cache issue on your own computer so clearing it MAY be an option. Always try online AND direct call. Anecdotally as an example I recently ADDED June 17th to my existing 18th -28th online reservation by calling the Horseshoe and they LOWERED my Grand total cost from $315 to $259 but my costs from July 1-11th remained unchanged at $274. Some consider it to be a frustrating process but I just treat it as a game giving me that much more funds to lose gaming Good luck
