Well, the title says it all. Once every year Caesars Entertainment Corporation pays the airfare for my wife and me and comps us a mini-suite and all the food we can eat over a weekend (up to $500.00).
The name changed from "Harrah's Entertainment Inc." to "Caesars Entertainment Corporation" last November. At the present time Caesars is the largest gaming company in the world. Now when I gamble at Bally's, Caesars, Harrah's, or any of their other 50 casinos I can use the same game card.
I have been a Seven Star player every year since Caesars started it back in 2005. To be Seven Star you must put at least $500,000 through their slot machines or gamble big money for long hours at their table games.
Some of the advantages to being a Seven Star is that I do not have to make reservations at any of the casino restaurants, I don't wait on any lines (for taxis, for concerts, events, cashiers, etc), I check out a few hours later, and I can get a room for 52 weekends a year without charge.
For the past ten years I have been going to a Caesars owned casino in Atlantic City about 30 times a year and I go to Caesars Las Vegas at least once every year.
I will again be a Seven Star player next year - but it will be my last year as a VIP. I am expanding my gold-buying business because of the spike in gold and silver prices these past few years and so I just will not have the time to go to casinos that often.
In case you guys were wondering what I was doing most of my weekends.
