Are there any other properties where this is not the case? MGM didn't care about me until I started betting big and had a bad weekend...



Not generally unless there are new, competing properties. CET definitely doesn't care about me and my 3000 Tier points for the year (Tim wants to attempt to earn in a day, unless DIAD moved to 4k). If it wasn't for the Race to Rewards, I wouldn't have much for comps at all.

You won't find 9/6 JoB at any CET property...not even at the high limit $100 room. Unless I am completely mistaken. Also, be advised that you only receive 1 tier credit for every $10 you bet playing Video Poker. However, I'm sure you will be fine!

Also, if you don't plan on being a loyal CET customer then there really is no value in achieving DIAD. The only perks would be cutting in lines and discounts at the gift shops. CET properties reward players based on the accumulation of tier credits; unless you are a high roller (of course).

Finally, choose a property where you want to receive Free Play and offers from. Although CET properties are linked, you will not receive offers from Caesars Palace (match play, cash back) unless you gamble there. Good luck Tim and please do report back on your journey!

Is DIAD plausible or even possible with table game play? With all the hocus-pocus involved in how many points you get from table game play, how would you even know how much play to give during the day?

This is pretty much what I'd like to know. From the previous threads on this discussion, I an guessing that it's not.

Corollary: Since 95% of my play is at the tables, I should avoid CET and stick to MGM properties.

If you bet high enough/long enough, I'm thinking it could be done in theory, but at games like blackjack, it would have to be a longgggggg session (> 16 hours) of $100+ at the minimum (for a full table...it may go faster shorthanded). And 16 hrs of $100 bet BJ may a little short if I had to guess. And risking that on the human rate element to determine hand rate and average bet would also suck. Would it be worth your while playing at CET? Since they have no S17 double deck according to the Wizard's survey, I sorta doubt it. Diamond would give you some free show tickets, and a nice line cutter, but most things are still tied to ADT I think.

CET typically likes to cater to slot players more generously from what I hear/see. Also since their hotels are generally crappier, they are nicer to the low rollers/fairly generous on room comps in Vegas.

Definitely possible. My last time in Vegas I easily earned PIAD at Ballys via table games. DIAD is only 1k more tier credits I believe.

Its strange. Why are they not helpful?
Its Dead Weak... a time in which real bargains exist all over town.
This was posted on Cyber Monday a time of 35 percent off room reservations.

If casinos do not treat you well.... vote with your feet... even with only two major owners in town they have to treat you right.
You want to do Diamond in a Day and they don't want to be helpful?

On Cyber Monday, I booked Imperial Palace/Quad at less than $14 per night! And that's the weekend rate! (Dec 20-24)

Someone here tried to do DIAD playing Blackjack a while back, and if I remember correctly, they failed/gave up because the casino was not forthcoming with him about how close he was getting, so he had no idea if he was close at all or not...

I may have made that up, but I'm pretty sure I remember reading it.
