For the past 9 years I gambled 95% of the time only at Caesars properties. This year I've switched and now only play WYNN & MGM Grand.
What a difference it's made, opening up a whole new world of opportunities.

I was blinded by Caesars & all there locations. I haven't earned 1 tier credit with them this year. My email box is flooded with offers but I refuse to use any. BTW I was a Seven Star player ever year.

I still eat well, see shows, and now get boxing tickets. So there is life after Caesars wish I had woken up sooner

I think you are still blinded, you just dont know it. IMO CET is the lesser of two evils. And if you do it right CET is far far better.

Considering 7* and boxing tickets, I get the feeling that LoneStarHorse is someone who was getting well below his comp balance every trip. Isn't Wynn a somewhat expensive room to make up for? And MGM is renowned for shoving its Profit Growth Plan in the face of their customers. 7* can traditionally go anywhere they want and have a great time I'd imagine.

In other words, good for you, but I'm not worth enough to make a similar jump. Also, I enjoy being able to play at other casinos and have it actually count. I wasted years at MGM (NYNY) before I realized this small detail, their entire program is a lie.

I jumped from MGM when I was at Mirage and sat down at $10 BJ. I threw my card on the table with my cash and was laughed at. Pit was standing there and said they don't care about my card for under $25. He gave me the chips, I pushed them right back and said, "color me up. If you don't care about my card, then why the hell should I care to spend money in your pit."

To be quite honest I really never asked for more than a suite. Food could care less about, concerts I only asked to have my kids see them.
WYNN has been very good to me, lovely suites, food, more than I ask for.
MGM has properties in other states which I like, since we love to travel.

Yeah, it really comes down to where you fall on the economic ladder and what you're looking for. If I could stay at Wynn/MGM and get what I'm getting at Caesar's, I'd be happy to spend some time there, but I just can't get back my 30-40% from them. Well, maybe, Wynn dropping odds down to 2x is an a-hole move.

It's funny how my view of Vegas has evolved to this. If I'm not going to get back my 30% (closer to 60-70% TBH), then I have no reason to play there.

I know for sure that my view of gambling in Vegas has changed over the last 5 years. Now in PA with great BJ rules, good craps rules, and decent casinos vegas hasn't become a gambling destination for us. 10 years ago when we went to Vegas it was all about gambling, partying, and having fun. Now it is about relaxing and having fun with a touch of gaming. Not sure if it is the wide spread legalization of casinos or me getting older.
