Free Total Rewards Tickets Are Back… Kinda
Earlier this year, there was a rash of casino players clubs cutbacks. It's a trend that no gambler likes to see. In April, Caesars Entertainment took away the pair of free show tickets that they allotted to their two top tiers of Total Rewards players, Diamond and Seven Stars.
These weren't free tickets to their mid-to-top tier shows like Celine Dion or Absinthe. These were free tickets to a handful of their low-tiered shows like the Mac King and Legends in Concert that rarely, if ever, sell out.
Well, Caesars was listening to the gripes about their removal of these free tickets and have partially restored them. According to the Seven Stars Insider newsletter, Caesars has reinstated the "Total Rewards benefit of two free tickets each month for selected Las Vegas casino shows – but only for Seven Stars cardholders, not for Diamonds anymore."
So, now you'll have to drop 6 figures into a slot to gain Seven Stars status to get these two comp tickets that will cost $40 each every month and not "just" the $50,000+ that a Diamond Total Rewards member will play. Instead of gambling more money to gain Seven Stars status for the free show tickets, Diamond Total Rewards members can spend $1,200 or so and just get a pair of tickets to these shows for the year. That's probably a safer bet and one that any level player could do.
