Vs. the cost to getting to Vegas like the OP was originally asking, the cost difference is insignificant. Unless you're lucky and live close by, you're going to have to travel a good amount to play great VP at CET properties. I think Tahoe is the only place left that offers 9/6 JoB for full points. Well, except the 100-coin penny unit at Tunica Roadhouse. But you ain't getting to 7 Stars that way!
