    Going to Vegas this weekend for 4 nights and looking to achieve CET Platinum but i need 2000 reward credits to do it. Any suggestions on how to make it there? I am not staying at a Caesars property this trip so i guess i need to get the most point i can by gambling.Are there any machines that pay better or are table games better? Thanks for any suggestions.

    You will lose more money playing for tier than you will gain with the minimal perks.

    Thanks..I am not going to play solely for that reason..I am Platinum Mlife but if it is achievable to up my CET tier i would go for it. Probably too much to even try for it since i dont really play Caesars properties too much.

    1 - 1000tc day.

    Thats 5000$ coin in on a regular slot. You can probably do it with 1000$ bank roll.

    edit - Can't do 2 - 500TC days. I thought it was was 500 + 500 bonus.

    This might sound ridiculous... but I actually think your best bet (literally) is to just pay $400 for a CET room out of your own pocket. When you book direct with CET you earn 5 TC per $1 spent on hotel rates/resort fees. So $400 * 5 = 2,000 TC.

    Of course, this can be "scaled back" based on how much gaming you plan to do. That is, if you planned to do 500ish TC worth of gaming anyhow, you'd earn 625 TC with the 125 TC daily bonus. Then you'd only need 1,375 TC, or $275 in hotel spend. Just ran some searches now, that's plenty of budget to pay for a nice suite for one night as an indulgence, if you wanted to keep the other hotel you had for the whole stay and simply stay in the suite for one night.

    Separately, you can earn 500 TC for each friend you refer to the Caesars Rewards program, which you earn when they pick up their card. If you know a few people who would be willing to do this, that could be an easy ticket to getting 2,000 TC...

    Want an extra 500 Tier Credits? Share your personalized URL with your friends and family! When one of them signs up and picks up their Caesars Rewards card, you both will receive 500 Tier Credits deposited to your accounts! Good friends share incredible deals!

    If you are platinum with MLife you can get a tier match if you havent used that before. Otherwise, I agree with just pay for a room. Its guaranteed and cheap compared to $10k or more of gambling.

    https://www.caesars.com/myrewards/promotions/diamond-tier-upgrade

    Edit: sorry - looks like the current match is for new members only. In the past they would let existing members do it if they hadn't used the match before.

    But, to earn 2000 gaming, you only need to earn 1,000 in a day and get the 1000TC bonus for earning 1,000, so at very least, devote enough bankroll to one day to reach 1,000TC. That will probably be way more expensive than just paying for a suite. I got a 1,000 TC bonus Friday on about $500 bankroll including 3 incredible winning streaks like I've never had before, and it still cost more than it would have to just pay for a room. Depending on where and what you play, it has cost me an average of closer to $1,000 a day in loss to meet the 1000TC threshold and could go much worse depending on your luck. Look for slots with low jackpots - I like double diamond deluxe for example, which has a maximum payout of $1600 usually on a $2 max bet at $1 denomination. The ones with the $500k jackpot obviously need to hold more out of each bet to pay off the jackpots. High progressive jackpots = high volatility and greater risk of ruin.

    2 500 TC days wont do it. You need 1,000 in one gaming day (gaming day has a 6am cutoff in las vegas). The 500TC bonus is only 125 TC, so (2) 500TC days will only earn 1250 TC total with bonus. The bonus for 1,000 in one day is 1,000, so that would earn 2,000 total with the same amount of gaming but all in one day instead of 2.

    The strategy here is definitely concentrate bankroll and gaming in to one day. Also will help with ADT to do it all in one day instead of splitting the same amount over 2 gaming days which will half your ADT.

    ETA: Never mind most of the below, lol, TCs on the hotel room don't count towards the daily bonus.

    Spending on a hotel room gets you 5 TCs per $1.

    So if you spend $200 on a room, you'll get 1,000 TCs for that and another 1,000 for the daily bonus.

    It would require $5,000 coin-in on slots to get 1,000 TCs, and you'd probably lose $500 - $1,000.

    So on the surface, it would appear just paying for the room is the way to go.

    The paradox is:
    • If you're logged in and you get comped rooms, their system may not show you any reasonably priced rooms, only comped rooms and high-end suites.
    • You could book a $200 room when you're not logged in, and then associate your account number with it when you check in.
    • But the real problem (if you use or care about your comp offers): You book a paid $200 room. Now you're on the property for a night, so you have to play at your normal level anyway or else risk damaging your offers. So the cost is $200 plus your typical nightly loss.

    If you're a micro-roller, then booking a $200 room and playing your usual small amount there that night might be the way to go.

    If your normal nightly loss limit is $500 - $1,000 (or your normal daily coin-in is $4,000 - $5,000), then booking a comp night and doing your normal coin-in might be the way to go.

    Diamond gets you out of resort fees and a $100 dinner. So you have to decide if the value of that in the course of a year is worth what it's going to cost to get there.

    I have spent over $1,000 on a room and did not get any TC bonus. I think the fine print says that is a gaming bonus, but I've heard mixed reviews on that. I can say for sure that in my personal experience, I've spent >$500 on rooms at Caesars Palace twice and did not get any TC bonus beyond the 5 TC per dollar.

    To answer the OP’s question, if you know how to play video poker correctly, select 9/5 Jacks or Better games in the PHo high limit room provide the standard 1 point for $10 played, and are statistically the best odds in terms of CET machines available in Vegas at that point level.

    I concur with others it is not worth the possible / expected losses attempting to reach a higher tier level. You should gamble what and where you please, and enjoy whatever benefits accrue but do not chase. Casinos spend millions on research and marketing to entice you to gamble more than you typically would, and chasing tiers is but one example. Most of us have been enticed, whether we choose to admit so or not.

    Yeah, you're right. Probably because they're essentially giving you 5x TCs on the hotel rate to begin with.

    2 x 500 TC days will only net you 125 bonus TCs for each. So that's only 1,250 total.

    Ranging from least coin-in to most:
    • Do $5,000 coin in on one night. You'll get 1,000 TCs and 1,000 more from the daily bonus, and you're done if you want.
    • Do $2,500 coin-in on each of 3 nights. You'll get 500 base TCs and 125 bonus TCs each night for a total of 1,875. You need to do $625 coin in on the other night to hit 2,000. Total coin-in: $8,125
    • Do $2,500 coin in on each of 2 nights. You'll get 500 base TCs and 125 bonus TCs each night for a total of 1,250. You'd need to do a total of $3,750 coin-in on the other 2 nights. Total coin-in: $8,750
    • Do $2,500 coin-in on one night. You'll get 500 base TCs and 125 bonus TCs for a total of 625. You'd need to do a total of $6,875 coin-in on the other 3 nights. Total coin-in: $9,375
    • Do $10,000 total coin-in over the course of the 4 nights, doesn't matter how you split it. You'll have at least one night in there where you'll earn a daily bonus, but it won't really matter.
