    Great royal hit!

    Love that Mon Ami view - I'll be there Saturday!

    Enjoy the diamond status. As much as I'd like to divest myself from CET having those perks is helpful when needing a quick room or a good offer. The benefit I use the most? Line cutting. Invaluable to have during trips when it's packed. Especially at the sportsbooks.

    I'm looking forward to line cutting. Except when a 7 star is nearby of course. :whistle:

    Fastest? Play $100 slots and run $50,000 thru the machine. Is it the best way? Not by a long shot!
    Best: Play the best video poker schedule CET will offer for two days in a row. Each day earn 5,000 pts and take the 2,500 bonus they give. After 2 days you'll have your 15,000 tier pts.

    Thanks. It's a great feeling. And that win covers my next trips gambling budget (even after taxes :thumbsdown: )

    Congratulations! Looks like a great trip. Hoping for a 4K hit myself in a couple of weeks. Only bad thing about being Diamond is that you don't want to give it up.

    Congratulations on hitting diamond on one trip.
    Roughly how many hours of video poker were you putting in a day to reach your goal?

    With that much play you will likely have better rooms comped in the fall too.

    Very rough estimate, I would say 4 to 7 hours. That depended on how many tier credits I was aiming to hit per day.

    I was noticing a lot more days on my TR booking calendar say "COMP".


    Yeah at the Flamingo. $1 progressive machine next to the poker room.

    Congrats on diamond and the royal! Going the easy route for my diamond with a 5x point day in Harrah's Tahoe next month so I won't have to grind quite as much.
