gn tier matches?
to caesars diamond? Borgata/mgm Gold?
which tier do you get?



Noooot trying to derail again to a different region, but the one in Laughlin would tier-match+1 anything else in the area (which basically means CET or Tropicana), so CET Diamond will end up with an Elite card. I'm not sure if that's still running this year though.

...And, frankly, I'm not actually sure what the point of that card is; the perks to the tier itself seem fairly insubstantial.

I am pretty sure that straub was paying 2million a month to keep power and electric and what not going. Add in legal fees and I am sure he still made a nice profit.

GN is absolutely KILLING it online, too! Nobody else is even close. The three CET properties combine for 39.2M online while GN makes 62.5M (YTD as November) by itself.



The main reason that the GN does so well is because they are the only casino in NJ to have live dealer table games.

The live dealer hours are 3pm to 3am.

As I said before, the world is becoming one big casino.. between the stock market, casinos, online casinos, lottery, local bookie, etc. people gamble! Now there are different risks associated with each, but when there is uncertainty in an outcome and something of value is at risk, then it is called gambling.

Its all about the benji amens! If you have plenty of money, it becomes more about the excitement and challenge associated with gambling. When you have little money and need to make money, its more about the money.

I assumed this was the reason... and they run TV ads about this. But, why is this the case? Is it more "realistic"? More fun? Do people like watching the women?

My guess would be that they feel it isn't as likely to be rigged, as opposed to a purely digital system. Also, from what I've seen, most live dealer games play off a shoe which they can see being shuffled periodically, as opposed to happening invisibly and instantly between hands. (If it isn't being shuffled after every hand to begin with.)

yeah GN tier benefits, even at the highest level, is underwhelming. :(

you can tier match with Caesars Diamond but have to earn 12.5k tier points within 3 months to keep that matched tier level.

Any reason to try to get 12.5k points at GN over trying to get Tropicana's Gold level, if you only have time on your trip to do 1?

"• Complimentary access to the private Chairman’s Club"
Is that the GNAC equiv of the CET Diamond Lounge? I don't think I've ever seen (or heard of it) at GNLV/GNL.

Are you sure that's how it works now? I'm fairly certain I did my (CET Diamond) tier match in Laughlin in October, and the site says that my Elite is valid through 02/28/2018, which, as I recall, is their usual annual card tier reset date.

Woah there-- cards tiers in GNAC are 4/10/50k. GNLV/GNL are 4/24/100k!

Also, I'm not sure if it's just my account that got bork'd, but ever since I did my tier match, I can't spend any of my comp at the restaurants, whether they're at independent Landry's locations or in GNs. Which has lead to awkward moments like getting kicked out of a Claim Jumper at 11PM while I'm trying to reach any club desk to figure out what happened. Might be something to consider.

In any event, I have made the call and have determined that CET Diamond transfers to their highest card level. You must bring in a CET Diamond card with an expiration date at least one month after the current month. (2/18 in this case.)
