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

I got that for 5 nights during the Super Bowl weekend as a backup room. I'm actually staying at The Flamingo but my father has this annoying habit of throwing the lock on the door and then going to sleep like a rock thus the backup room.

Diamond In A Day

CET's way of getting a new player who plays at a higher level, straight into the Diamond level.

I think it takes 11,000 tier points now to get to Diamond level. So a new player would start out as a Gold player, same as anyone who feeds the penny slot for 1 line at a time.
After a weekend of spending a couple of G's, this new player may be at the platinum level, but that is still not much of a perk, for a player who is obviously more valued than that. So instead of making that person gamble 3 more times at the high level to finally get to Diamond, CET says if you get 3,500 tier points in ONE day, then your level of play is high enough that we will give you Diamond status now, and expect you will qualify for it anyway during the rest of the year.

Haven't heard about the $20 trick. Anyone interested in a quick description? Thanks.

The $20 trick or sandwich as it is sometimes called is slipping a twenty between your ID and your credit card and asking if there are any complimentary upgrades at the time you check in. Some say it works and others say that an upgrade can be gotten just for asking nicely. If it doesn't work the $20 is usually returned so there's little risk. Google $20 trick and you'll find dozens of pages on it.

In terms of the $20 Trick, I'm 1 for 1 in attempting it in Vegas. During my last trip in March of this Year we got upgraded from a standard room in Harrahs to a nice suite complete with television in the Bathroom and a view of the North Strip for the duration of our 3 night stay. For an additional $6.67 per night, we got a room that was running about $100.00 per night more than the one we paid for. Like 1BB said, it's at least worth a shot as they will return your money (or ask if you want change for that 20) if they can't accomodate you.

It's not worth doing DIAD in Las Vegas. The only way to do it is by playing video poker, and the video poker here isn't good enough. If you insist on doing it, play $1 8/5 Bonus Poker at the Rio. If you put through $30,000 in coin, your expected loss is $234, and you WILL get a ton of offers from CET including free rooms, shows, freeplay, etc. It won't matter that you made diamond; just that you had a big day of heavy play. All the Diamond is good for is cutting in lines and going into the lounges (which are pretty nice).

Do you want to use some of my room offers? I think I have more than I can use, including Cosmopolitan if you want to stay there. (I'll give you a discount lol)

I'm guessing we all talked Tim going out for Diamond on this last trip? :)

The amount of time I waited in line at the "Quad" to collect free slot play this trip made me wish I earned 1000 more Tier this year to be part of the "Platinum/Diamond" line.

At least I was still able to get an IP poker chip though. All changes for the casino name are due by the 21st.

Are you suggesting that The Quad chips will be in play by the 21st of this month? No such chips had been approved as of the November report issued by the NGCB on 12/3/2012.

The Quad is on my list of chips to get, and I hope I can pick up one if I make it to WoVCon ]I[ in June, but I wouldn't expect any to be in play for at least a couple more months from now.
