    Most all!
    I am curious as to why you have to finish off Diamond. Is there some kind of promo/advantage to doing it now, in June, or similar?

    Good Luck!

    Just the Race to Rewards, which is mostly worthless.

    Doing it all in one day does reduce the required coin-in to get it and will keep your ADT high, but bad days can look really bad.

    Hope things get better for you, Tim. Fighting in Vegas is never fun.

    Well on the second $2500 I think we’re down $1000 but alogged through 600 points; so I think 400 points More and double and we’ll be back at down $2500 with diamond (acceptable)
    OR Just hit a ducking royal!
    We’re heading over to Brooklyn Bowl now to go to the CET event to bowl 301’s

    Wouldn’t matter; just had an offer for $200 Home Depot card + $375 freeplay + vip bowling event at Brooklyn Bowl...so good reason as any to come finish off diamond for the year (we put in a 2500TC day in January, then this makes two for 5000 = Diamond in two days)

    I WAS going to bring my bowling ball with me to crush everyone else here...but I thought I’d look stupid..turns out someone else brought their balls.

    That shit was fun as fuck!
    Crazy though, the amount of people with money in there, lol (I never think of myself as “wealthy”)
    Also our host introduced us to the president of Linq (some lady, I didn’t catch her name)

    Stopped to get a bite to eat at Off Strip (kris didn’t really like the fried chicken and Pulled Pork sliders)
    She said the sketi and merbals were probably the best she’s ever had, lol

    Boy those are some sad faces on you two. I hope your luck changes so you can turn the frown upside down. Glad the bowling at least worked out for you. Sending positive vibes and hope your trip becomes enjoyable

    4CE1D36C-4A14-4AFB-A121-4FD3B8305D24.jpeg Well we made the 2500TC, but it cost $4000.
    We have $1000 left so we’re going over to Palace Station, since I need like 10k coin in to make platinum again (I like the free Princess Cruises they send)
    Hopefully I can hit something big over there
    This helped to get to 2500TC

    Appreciate the responses Tring and Tim. I understand the optimization of bonus tier credits and ADT......what piqued my interest was the words "have to finish". I opt out of CET emails and thought possibly there was a bonus of sorts by making Diamond in a quarter or in the first 6 months.

    Just leaving Palace Station..we played $10 ultimate the entire time and only lost $100, then fired a $100 through lightning link on the way out; so we ended up only losing $200, which is literally LIGHTYEARS better than we did all day.
    We’re both out of our mind tired and hungry; so we’re going to valet the car back at Paris; I’m gonna get spicy wontons from Yong Kang.

    Last full day here maddafackas!
    We died last night...straight coma status from 1am until just a few minutes ago.
    Shitty part is we have to be back in bed by like 10pm, as we have to be up at 4, to get to airport by 5 (boarding starts at 530)
    I think we’re going to get up and have bacchanal using my $100 diamond celebration voucher (and a little more comp dollars, as it’s $60 a person for brunch)
    Then we’ll probably drive over to Ethel M’s and look at the cactus garden.

    Thinking back on the gambling for 2500TC...we literally did not have a picture worthy hit other than the $590 on Lightning Link, and the $200 10x video poker hand, haha. Other than those two I think we only took a double on a machine like 4 times

    2500tc losing $4000 is shit.
    But I had several times losing the same amount not even got 1000 TC.

    I think later today I’m going to stick my last $800 in the 25 7/5 BP 100-play (I’ll play it 8-handed) at PHo and go for broke or big win.
    Maybe I can score 1000TC in the process.
