Hi, I want to share a my Seven Star journey with you all and tell you how much it cost me to get there. My primary casino is Caesars AC. I am an 80% table player with 20% on slot. It took me 9 trips this year to hit Seven Star for the first time. I am a significant baccarat player with 500 - 2k average per hand. I was always a Diamond for the past 4 years and get treated royally by my host. I always get any food/beverage, large suites, spa and even limo rides (when I'm too tired to drive) from home all the way to AC (240 miles round trip) comped. I never cared about my tier status because I knew I was getting treated better than most. Life was good as a DIAMOND until one day back in Nov 2014. (Nov 2014) I was waiting on the DIAMOND line to cash in my chips and there was about 6-7 DIAMONDs ahead of me (Note: I usually cash large amount of chips in a hidden VIP cage in the back but I only had a few purple chips so it didn't make sense for me to go back there). When I was finally next after 15 mins of waiting a flood of Seven Stars show up to cash chips and the security lets them go first. I waited another 10 - 15 minutes and when the security finally waves at me to go, I start walking toward the cage and I felt someone from my left side rushes pass me so quickly he pushed my chips and drink off both my hands. At this moment I was going to knock this guy out and before I said anything he whipped out his Seven Stars card repeatedly saying he is a Seven Star. He said "I AM A SEVEN STAR AND YOU NEED TO WAIT TILL I'M DONE". I said F*** YOU AND YOUR SEVEN STARS you pushed me and didn't even apologize. We begin to have shoving match and it caught the attention from security in all 8 directions. At the end the security lets him go first because he was a Seven Stars. Afterward, my host was probably notified by the security and he came to apologize and even offered me some free play. It was such a tough cookie to swallow that day so I made a sacred vow to achieve Seven Star in 2015. So my journey begins where I started to look into tier bonuses and how to maximize my play for tier points while minimizing my play. Playing at my level still took me a while to do because I don't have time to make many trips. Therefore I must give props to those who grind their way to Seven Star on slots/table regardless if you roll high or low . It's not easy to achieve this status without hanging yourself or going into debt during the journey. I was upgraded to Seven Stars a week ago and it cost me around 20-23k loss. Was it worth it for me? yea I probably would have won/lost that much with or without a loyalty program but more importantly I set a goal and made sure I follow through with it. All that being said I'm not rich or well off in any way. I just slowly built my bank roll like many others and learned early on that the amount you bet doesn't matter it could be 10$, 100$ or 1k as long as you fully understand the game you play and have discipline you can come off even or up in the casino in the long run! I am still up overall.
