I have been a Caesars Diamond player for 3-years now, and I am thinking of making a run at Seven Stars this year. Before I do, I have a few questions.

1) I haven't used my $100 Diamond Celebration dinner yet (for 2019). If I become 7-Stars before I use that, will I lose it?

2) At Caesars Rewards web site it says that the 7-Stars $500 dinner is given as five $100 certificates, and "you can use them at $100 increments." But do you have to use them all in the same trip, or can I use two in August and three in November?

3) If I only make 7-stars once, say in August of this year, will I get a $500 dinner in 2019, and a $500 dinner in 2020? I am pretty sure the answer is yes, since that is how it works for Diamond, but I just wanted to check.

4) Since Caesars may be up for sale, how confident are we that they will honor all of the 7-stars benefits in 2020? I would hate to spend the $$ to get the tier level, only to find out that they are no longer honoring the benefits (especially the free trip, which I would use to go to New Orleans).

And last question…5) According to CET, 7-star status is "by invitation only." Since I earn my tier points primary through Video Poker, is it possible my 7-star status won't be granted?

Thank you in advance for any input. I hope I put this thread in the proper category.

Hi Hulla,

Thank you for responding, and yes, I know about that site. It's a great site, but not all of my questions are addressed there. I'd like to hear from someone who has recent experience. I suppose I could email sevenstarsinsider.

I'm also wondering if you still get an NCL cruise with 7-star status. On CET it looks like you need 500,000 TC for that (am I reading that wrong?). On sevenstarsinsider it doesn't mention any change in the "free cruise"rule.

I was 7-stars for a few years, a few years ago, but I haven't done it in a while so this may be a bit dated, although I think it's all accurate. FWIW, they've been making 7-stars worse and worse as time goes on (EG: no more guaranteed free nights). I don't think it's all that much valuable to an AP anymore, but that's something you'll have to weigh for yourself.


1. No. I redeemed my $500 7 star and $100 diamond food certificates all at the same time. You'll be fine.

2. They print you out a voucher (looks like a receipt), actually 5 of them. You can use them however you want -- all on one meal, or on 5 different meals, or spread over different trips. NOTE: Make sure the restaurant will accept the vouchers. There are some restaurants on Caesars properties that DO NOT accept Caesars comp stuff because they aren't owned by Caesars (or something like that).

3. You'll definitely get the $500 food in 2019. I'm not sure, although leaning towards the 'No' on if you'll get it for 2020.

4. Assuming they get sold within the time frame we're talking and they get everything transferred over to the new system, you'll probably get f***ed. A few(?) years ago when they changed the 7-star benefit from "guaranteed free room" to "guaranteed [not-necessarily-free] room", there was nothing that could be done and players who had earned 7-stars the year before (IOW: they'd keep 7-star status going into the next year, when the rules/benefits got switched) got royally screwed on that, especially since that was one of the big allures to 7-stars, at least for many people.

5. It's by invitation only, which basically means AFAICT, that once you reach 150k TC's (or whatever the threshold is now), you basically have to go to the TR desk and ask 'em what's up. They'll put a note or something on your account and it'll get reviewed by whoever and likely approved. At least that's what happened to me when I did it, the first year it was "by invitation only". I don't know for sure, but my guess is as long as you aren't behind on marker payments and don't have anything noticeably 'negative' in your account, you'll get it. Again, I'm not entirely positive on this, so proceed with your own risk.

Thanks RS -- The "Invitation Only" does worry me a bit, so I emailed CET customer service with that question. I will post their response when I get it. But to address what you said, I shouldn't have anything negative in my CET profile, so I would hope that I am a slam-dunk.

I now realize I read the tier info wrong; I see that every 7-Star players gets a congratulatory cruise (with restrictions, naturally).

As far as the value goes, without going into any great detail, with my current Tier point total, and assuming I accept a certain CET offer, my expected loss to go up to 7-Stars is approximately $1400. Now we all know variance can be a b*tch, but even if I lost more than $1400, it would very likely be worth it (with a free trip to Harrah's New Orleans, a free cruise, tons of free food using RC's and/or dinner vouchers, and likely better and more free rooms in Vegas). I'll have to give it careful consideration. The offer I am thinking of pursuing is near the end of July, so I've got time to mull it over.

Cheers (and thanks again!).

Anyone know if betting exclusively online (online casino and/or online sportsbook) can get you to seven stars?
