    Hi All, I will be in Vegas staying at Flamingo May 15-18th. I am currently Diamond and I chose to stay at Flamingo. I know, it is not Caesars but I like the size and location. When I first started coming to Vegas with my Mom many years ago during 80"s and 90"s. We always stayed at the Flamingo. Lot's of good memories. We are going on offer with free Celine tickets. We saw her when she performed with Cirque du Soleil. Looking forward to seeing her again before her residency ends. I now only make it to Vegas a couple times a year. My partner and I live on the east coast, Virginia. I have a few questions that I am hoping to get some feedback on that will help me to make the most out of this short trip.
    When you get comped tickets are the seats decent, are seats already assigned??
    Which Diamond Lounge is the best for hot food? Last year stayed at Paris and it was pretty good, I know Flamingo's is just OK.
    We like a good late breakfast, real eggs and omelets, used to go to the café in Flamingo that was across from the buffet unfortunately it was closed several years ago. Any suggestions on other CET properties, we have about $200 rewards credits so I will be trying to stretch to cover our meals for 2.
    I will be using the Diamond $100 credit for meal.
    Now some gambling questions.
    I play 3 Card Poker, used to play a lot of Blackjack but the rules are so bad at CET properties. I will not play 6/5 and my average bet is between $10-$25, mostly comfortable at $15. Any suggestions for BJ.
    I went on the CET slot finder site and could locate many of the machines I like to play, I understand it can not be 100% accurate. Surprisingly, I did not see any Lord of The Rings. I really like the LOTR Rule Them All. I know other casinos have it so I am hoping the site is wrong.....anyone know?
    I also like Triple Cash Wheel with Quick Hits. Paris had it last year but I could not find it on my last visit. The slot finder site stated that Caesars had a Triple Cash Wheel but I don't know if it the same with Quick Hits. I know Winn has it but I am trying to limit my gambling to CET properties.
    I am really hoping to grind it out and make Diamond in a day. With as tight as the slots are I don't know if I will have the bankroll. I will play 1c to $5 dollar machines. I was lucky enough to get on the $1 Margaretville slot machine at Flamingo but of course they took it out when Flamingo dropped the Margaretville theme. I loved that machine I played on it for 5hrs, walked away with $900 and made diamond in a day. I would love to find a slot machine like that, betting $4 to $5 dollars.....any suggestions.
    In order to satisfy my Blackjack fix I am hoping that Casino Royal still has double deck handheld game. That's the only off CET property I plan on dropping any of my money.
    I love this site and enjoy reading the trip reports, any help will be greatly appreciated. This is my first time posting. I hope I did OK.
    I always have "Hihopes"

    Tickets - CET will have a couple different banks of seats. Depending on what players are in town determines which set of seats you will get assigned to. Usually the worst seats aren't the worst in the house, but don't expect front row.

    I have heard good things about Harrahs diamond lounge. (We are supposed to start calling them Laurel lounges btw JK).

    I like the breakfast at Fulton Street in Harrahs. Mon Ami Gabi has a great breakfast but you have to get a voucher to use rewards credits. Bacchanal Buffet is great but a bit pricey.

    BJ - play at the cromwell. You will find the best rules at decent limits. Ballys high limit also has some better rules but it would be at the top of your range. It is usually $25 or $50.

    Casino Royale - avoid their blackjack. They have gimmicky games. If you are going to stray from CET I would recommend Treasure Island.

    Slots- I can't reallly help you in this area.

    I don't think you'll find any $15 BJ tables which aren't 6/5. Typically you'll have to go up to $25 to avoid 6/5. Your best chance to find something though might be single-deck at The Cromwell in the mid-afternoon.

    Between Harrahs / Flamingo / Linq / The Cromwell all 4 places are so close to each other that you'll find basically any slot machine your heart desires - just might take a little walking around between them. If those 4 places don't have it then chances are CET doesn't have it. I doubt crossing over to Caesar's Palace you'd see anything unique over there slot-wise and their casino is just so damn spread out you're better off staying on the other side of the road. And I also don't think that Bally's / Paris / Planet Hollywood are likely to showcase anything unique either. Flamingo is really such a perfect location for enjoying all things CET.

    Hash House A Go-Go at Linq has gone a bit downhill IMO but it's still pretty good for breakfast - just watch out as the portions there are so enormous it's almost cartoon-like. Paris seems to have a number of great breakfast places between The Creperie and the french restaurant beside the buffet. If you're looking to spend ungodly amounts then Sterling Brunch at Bally's (BLT Steak) on Sunday mornings would be the go-to there.

    I think the Diamond Lounge at Harrah's is probably your best bet other than the one at Paris. Cromwell doesn't have one and I don't think the Linq does either.

    Buffet-wise it's Bacchannel at Caesars Palace as the top option but expensive. All the others on your side of the street are rather poor. I'd say the Harrah's is the best of the bunch (but not great), then Paris, Planet Hollywood, Flamingo are all pretty bad - although Paris is pretty good for breakfast.

    If your in the mood for Italian I'd suggest Rao's at Ceasars Palace (back by the buffet). Ruths Chris at Harrah's or BLT at Bally's for steak. If you go to BLT, the popovers are amazing.

    I'm getting hungry just thinking about all this!

    Ballys has the old "Lord of the Rings". Harrahs has the new version.

    I was really surprised that the slot finder list did not show any LOTR slots. I was really hoping it was just not up to date. I just played the newer version "Rule then All" at casino in Delaware, Dover Downs. I was able to play for a good period and even walk away with a few hundred win.
    Thanks, Hihopes

    I was at Cromwell last month and during the afternoon the Doubledeck tables were 15-25 min and the shoe dealt started a $10 all 3-2 tables. Flamingo has added a few $25 3-2 tables near the cashier cage.

    One thing to bear in mind is that some of the CET tables on the main floor have non-standard rules about things like not being able to re-split aces, etc. It can be a little annoying if you're not expecting it. I second the recommendation of Cromwell.

    As far as buffets, I think Paris is pretty solid, especially for breakfast. Egg dishes are great, as are the crepes. Personally, my favorite basic egg breakfast is at Aria.

    "I don't think you'll find any $15 BJ tables which aren't 6/5"

    Paris/Bally's (and more often then not Cromwell) have 3:2 $10/$15 available pretty much all the time, but you do need to look for them since they are mixed with 6:5. As said above, none of the CET casino's allow resplitting aces.

    Most all!
    Just to add.........Planet Hollywood has 3/2 @ $15 min and as stated for other properties, it is best to ask where they are located; it varies. You can double on anything and double after splitting.
