So, You Wanna Be a “Diamond in a Day”

One of the perks of playing at Total Rewards casinos (at resorts in the Caesars Entertainment family) is achieving progressively higher tier levels as you rack up “Tier Credits.”

Total Rewards “tiers” are Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Seven Stars. Each tier level has increasingly appealing benefits. See the details here.

These cards have juice!

In most cases, achieving a new tier status takes time, but did you know there’s a way to become a Diamond player in one day?

Becoming a Diamond player means you’ll have access to the sweet Diamond Lounges at Total Rewards casinos. There, you’ll find snacks and quiet and Internet access and friendly servers who will bring you complimentary cocktails. That’s just this blog’s favorite Diamond perk, but there are others. As a Diamond, you’ll also get priority hotel check-in privileges, and you can zip past lines at casino cages and at Total Rewards Centers. There’s even a VIP room reservation hotline for Diamond players.

Here’s how you get to be a “Diamond in a day.”

You can become a Diamond by earning 3,000 Tier Credits in one day at one casino. You can be a Gold or Platinum member to do this (sorry, no renewals for existing Diamond players).

Pretty straightforward, right?

“How does one earn Tier Credits?” you ask. Your petulance is duly noted.

Here’s how it works: One Tier Credit is earned for every $5 (coin-in) played on a reel slot machine and every $10 (coin-in) played on a video poker machine. For table games, Tier Credits are based on one’s length of play, average bet and game type.

More good news: Tier Credits can also be earned in ways other than gambling. You can also earn them when you make a purchase at a participating restaurant or entertainment venue. Earn a Tier Credit for every $1 spent on your entertainment and food purchases at participating outlets. Make sure to present your Total Rewards card. They’re not psychics. Probably.

Some additional small print: If you achieve your Diamond status January through November, it’s valid through March of the following year. If it’s achieved in December, it’s valid for the following year through March of the year after.

One word of caution. The “day” in question isn’t a calendar day, but more like a 24-hour period, so ask someone at the casino’s Total Rewards Center for details.

We’ll see you in the Diamond Lounge!

    You can also get Diamond Status by becoming a member of Founders Card ( The annual fee is $795, but there’s a $300 discount with a referral code. Pricy, but a good way to get Diamond “befoe” your visit (It took 3 weeks for my status to jump from lowly Gold to Diamond, once joining Founders Card!)

    Use my referral code FCROBERT815 for a preferred invite at:

    Diamond status is not what it used to be. true statement… There was a time when there was no loyalty program. Also a true statement… But there was also a time when I could ask the pit boss if he could get tickets for the hottest show in Vegas tonight, and he would get me those tickets at no charge. When the craps table was packed, and the pit boss would make room for me (even if he had to ask someone to leave). Vegas has had many faces over the years (good and bad). They have grown to rely on volume and not the whales. Loyalty programs exist so that a player may chase that next level and spend more then they might normally spend. Just stick to your bankroll plan (what ever that may be), and enjoy your gambling experience. If you get something from the loyalty program that is a little icing, the ‘cake’ comes when you it that jackpot or roll the dice for an hour.

    I am a Diamond member and have been going to Harrah’s in Philadelphia,Pa. for the past two years. Whenever I visit the Casino, my fiance and I visit the Diamond Lounge. The menu selection is fantastic in taste and presentation. All servers and hosts are most cordial and are always there to assist. This is the only Diamond Lounge I have visited so I cannot compare to others.

    I just got diamond status in July, spent three nights at Caesars Palace in August and was truly treated like royalty. Private hotel registration office with complimentary soft drinks and sweets. Got free tickets to my choice of some decent shows. I went to “Million dollar quartet”. Got to jump ahead of about 100 people at the buffet for breakfast and totally loved the diamond lounge where the staff was excellent, had a few bombay saphire martinis and nice appetizer buffet. It was very comfortable and a pleasant oasis. Look forward to checking out the other diamond lounges on my next trip to vegas!
