I'm far from a high roller and I doubt anyone at CET will jump off a bridge after hearing of my departure.

After over 20 years as a card carrying member, the nearly endless erosion of member benefits has become intolerable. I look at myself as a value player not an AP. All I require is a little payback for my play and a chance at some occasional luck. We make a couple trips to LV a year and the wife and I average about $50000 coin in per year(platinum). Over the years the erosion of good VP machines at a dollar or less has left us with the BP machines at the RIO. I just discovered they now require $25 coin in per point, it's the last straw.

The town has seen many changes over the years, not many of them for the good.

It's definitely unfortunate. Generally speaking what is the best place for a player of your caliber? Boyd properties? Stations? South Point? I really don't know the answer and am curious in what others think.

I'd say Boyd. The past few years I've been staying at the Rio and walking over to Gold Coast to do my gambling. I always spend time at MSS, love the place. Stations gets some of my play also. In my opinion, GVR and Red Rock are the best properties in town we simply don't go enough to earn room comps. With Boyd, it seems like our play at IP Biloxi has something to do with Las Vegas comps.

Regarding CET, too many MBAs, too few businessmen.

Agree 100%. They have destroyed every decent VP game all over the country and now it is$20-25 coin in for ONE POINT! Ridiculous and absurd.

Amen on the MBAs versus businessmen who know how to treat their customers.

I can't believe Green Valley and particularly Red Rock don't treat you better. Did you ask?

If you love MSS....llearn to like small older style rooms.

The website is still showing $10 for a tier credit on VP. Where did you see the $25 requirement? If that is the case, then I would have to agree with you and discontinue my play there entirely. They have terrible pay tables anyway, usually the worst available for that game.

The new 9/6 .25 games at Caesars AC are $50 in for 1 point. These are the ones right outside the Toga Bar downstairs.

CET is one of those places you won't get an advantage in any way, but the room offers are pretty decent enough to play for minimal expected loss. Although actual loss always equal more...

Cost of diamond as a new player: 5000 tier credits in one day or 2500 points over 2 days gets you the extra 10k needed to go diamond. 5000 tier points at $10 a point equals $50k in action, and take about $500 off in expected value if playing a 99% game. Not too tough to run $50k on a $5 denom (2000 hands), or play $2 over 2 days (2500 hands each day).

Out of the $500 loss you get access to the diamond lounge, line cutting privileges, free gym use (pretty strong for me since I'm local and live next to the strip), freeplay offers as well as food offers, and last but not least room offers. It's great for the tourist who wants everything short of airfare comped (although based on your action you might get that too.) There was a diamond dinner for $100 when you first hit it as well. So the cost has to have value for you to play.

I find CET to have the best high card tier perks out of every casino. The cashiers and the player's club people always give priority service to plat+ over the regular members, and this is pretty big if you hate waiting in line to cashout or have a problem taken care of. Some casinos have higher tier lines, but they don't enforce the rule therefore negating the perk. Same goes for buffet or restaurant service.

I am enjoying my Seven Stars status for this year so far. I earned it with minimal losses last year, and I don't plan to gamble much if any this year and just reap the benefits. I took a free trip to San Diego which I enjoyed, and I have yet to use my other trip with $500 food credit as well as a free cruise. I used the guaranteed hotel room benefit to go up to Cleveland to visit for a weekend and it was nice to be able to stay at the Ritz Carlton instead of someone's house. Also got comped internet and in-room movies. Watched Dallas Buyers Club and Captain Phillips.
