    The past few years I have been going to Las Vegas once a year and I get diamond on the trip. I average about 20,000 tier credits per trip. I play craps with avg bet at $300 and play 4-5 hours a day.

    I plan to visit Vegas at least 3 times this year and also plan to go to Horseshoe in Hammond, IN and also the Caesers property in Joliet, IL.

    I know about the quest for rewards for 2017 and plan to hit the 9 Vegas CET properties, Hammond, and Joliet. Any other ideas to maximize promotions. Do the local casinos have tier credit multipliers that I can earn extra tier credits that way.

    Im looking for any other ideas on getting to Seven Stars in 2017. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks, Trutt

    One of the keys to making 7 stars is getting daily bonuses. You need to earn 5K tier credits in 1 day to get a 10K bonus. You should rearrange your schedule to have multiple sessions in 1 day.

    Probably the BEST way to make it. Watch your daily points and do not miss that gimme bonus.

    I have calculated that it takes 13-14 2500TC days to renew 7* (making it for the first time may take an addl.. day or two) if you MAXIMIZE the bonuses. Stay tuned for my 2016 7* report and my strategy for renewing 7* in 2017.

    also monitor your credits throughout the day to see how close you are to 5,000 or 2,500. If you are a little short, play some VP to get you there.

    If you play craps, play long sessions and not several short ones. You are rewarded for 3-4 hour sessions in one spot and punished for say, 3 or 4 1 hour sessions.

    How does one monitor their TC during a day/session? I thought they only posted those the day after they are earned on the TR site/app

    Thansk for all the suggestions. pfunk...I know I get rated better on a 3 or 4 hr session. But your saying my tier credits will be better on a 4 hour session compared to 4 1 hr sessions.

    Also, do local casinos through CET have tier credit multipliers or just RC multipliers?

    I log into my CET app to check my CET points. As well, the machines tell you how much you've earned. I've done 1,000 TCs in a single sitting on VP before lol

    But if playing table games, I don't believe the pit boss can give you an accurate tally on TC earned that session. And the app updates the next day. So I don't think there is a way to keep tabs on your TCs while playing table games besides asking what they have your average wager at and time at table.

    Check with total rewards and they might be able to give you some information on your play. Also talk to the floor upservisor prior to leaving any table to ensure your play has been appropriately rated. You also might be surprised that they will raise your average bet if asking them as long as within reason. This can result in a big increase.

    I have encountered RC multipliers at many casinos but have yet to encounter a TC multiplier. Maybe they have them but I have never seen them. (Iowa, Tunica, So Indiana, Joliet, KC, former St Louis).

    There aren't TC multipliers but there are RC multipliers. I try and play on those days because although there is no TC multiplier you get more benefits (e.g., many more RCs) by playing on RC multiplier days. It's a good way to further reduce the house edge on VP on big play days, when you might be going for TC bonuses.

    The only TC multipliers I've seen are EOY, and even at that only 1.5x

    After leaving the table, wait a little while and put your card in a slot machine and it will tell you your tier credits for the day.

    yes, on tables, once they close you out when they see you are not there playing it only takes 30 minutes to 1 hour before your points are online, card ect
