    I have 3 trips already planned to different areas of the country to gamble over the next 3 months. As luck would have it CET started the Race to rewards promo right during these 3 months!! So why not take advantage of this as I already had planned to gamble. As I was not involved in this promo last year a little bit of research was done on my part and I noticed I could get the max 15 points for the $750 credit. The purpose of this thread is to showcase my journey as well as see how much gambling money it costs to reach the 25 points at each casino. I will update this thread until I get the 15 points.

    My journey starts with Tunica this coming Thursday. I have a Thursday afternoon flight and hope to do a TR and posted it over on the non Vegas topics. For the Tunica portion of the trip I have traded cards with 2 other VMB members. We each are going to get 4 points on each persons card. I will first swipe the card at the kiosk then go play the 25 points at vp and track win/loss. Then go back to the kiosk swipe, play, record and repeat. That way no one sees me at the kiosk with 3 cards. I will just blend in over the time it take to accumalte the points. Although if the kiosk at Harrahs's Tunica happens to be deserted I might just quickly swipe my 3 cards.

    That will get me 3 points. Then I have a trip to Vegas in August which will get me another 3 points. The last trip is to Tahoe in sept which will get me 1 point for a total 7. Also in Tahoe I will be playing with 2 other cards to get to the agreed upon 4 points. So 7 points plus 8 points that I will get from my 2 trades will get me to exactly 15 points! Stay tuned for my journey!!

    Harrahs's Tunica VP

    I noticed on the vpfree2 site that Harrahs Tunica has 9/6 .50 cent VP by the Dunkin Donuts which is 99.54%. I am really surprised they have vp with that high of a return. Hopefully this holds true as it could be a very low variance to get the 75 points I need.

    Harrahs Tunica swipe

    I just swiped all three cards at Harrahs Tunica. Took 1 minute. Kiosk is in no mans land. Very easy to swipe cards!

    Decided to play 50 cent 9/6 JOB for 25 points each. Lowest variance game with the highest payout.

    My card first. Won 47.50. Next card lost 42.50. Last card won 55. Net total up 60!

    Promo off to a good start.

    Next up

    Next up will be Vegas. Staying at Paris for a night in the beginning of August. Any good machines at Paris at the 50 cent level. I could not find anything on vp free. Any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks!

    Don't you need to earn 25 points at each destination this year to get credit?

    If that's the case, it's not as good an offer as last year's insanely generous promotion.

    i played this last year and traded cards with other posters to get the max----after playing the necessary points i sent a pm to the poster advising of the date and destination played and then tossed the card----the fellow posters did likewise and everyone happy---willing to do the same this year--if anyone interested

    i have 2 cards [duke and wife] and need destinations other than vegas,laughlin,ac,chester[now philly] and bossier city

    i can do ac and chester/philly which are 2 point destinations in return ---- i visit chester/philly 3 to 4 times a week and ac weekly--

    if any interest send a pm

    Cards

    I traded cards with two other members. We each will get 4 race to reward points. That is also why I am looking at low variance games.
