    I will be out in LV for March Madness where the lines are notoriously insane in the sportsbooks. I vaguely remember there being signs for separate lines for Diamond/7 star members but they weren't necessary at the time so I don't know if my memory is clear.

    Anyone know if Diamond/7 stars have separate lines in the books? And if so, do all CET books have the separate lines? It'd would be hugeee to be able to skip those insane lines to get my bets down.

    And to kind of go along with that, has anyone watched the games in the Diamond Lounges? Recommended? Or do they get insanely crowded too?

    A few of the lounges (PHo in particularly) have great TVs...mix that with the free drinks....might be a great place to watch the games.

    Yes, there are diamond/7star lines at the CET sports book. Sometimes it will say, "Races/Diamond/Sevenstars)

    As for the Diamond Lounges, they are OK, but when you watch the games, you can't here the commentating, if that matters. Also, while there are several TVs, you have a more limited option of terms of watching different games. Obviously, it is still more comfortable then the sports book, but still, not ideal, IMO.

    A couple years ago I remember seeing a window at Caesars during MM that indicated it was Diamond/Seven Stars, but only if your minimum bet was $5000. It was a short line!

    I can say for sure Paris has Diamond/7 Star priority line in the sportsbook.

    I was in the PH diamond lounge to watch Super Bowl, and we had the sound turned up on that huge tv. They even brought in a portable bar in that room for Super Bowl and drinks were flowing fast. That happened the past 2 years. I don't know if the will do that for MM, but it is a good room to watch game in.

    PH book had a separate line too.

    Was it crowded in the PH diamond lounge for the game? I can imagine quite a few people gather in that room with the large TV to watch the Super Bowl/March Madness.

    The PH diamond lounge is probably best for this. At CP they have told me the volume is never on the TV except during Super Bowl and Kentucky Derby.

    Not crowded at all. They had 2 couches up front, and the normal tables. They did bring in 2 tables at the back, when Ice-T and Coco showed up. Didn't know it at the time. When I was going to get some coconut shrimp and heading to the food, Ice-T came around the corner in the other direction. I kind of did a double take. The "I recognize this guy" look on my face, oh its Ice-T.

    That is awesome. I sure wouldn't mind being in the same room as Coco...

    Looks like I'll be hitting up PH for the Madness right at noon when it opens up. :drunk:

    PH and Paris definitely have Diamond line privileges, the problem (IMO) with Diamond lounges is they don't open until 5 or so on weekdays and noon on weekends
