  1. […] The example Gary gave was Gold status with MGM’s M life program. Because Hyatt has a status match program with M life, you can easily get this mid-tier status if you already have some kind of status with Hyatt. All Platinum members with Hyatt Gold Passport can receive Gold status with MGM by asking. All Diamond members with Hyatt can receive Platinum status with MGM. […]


  1. Any idea what it takes to get rated play? If it’s $5/hand or something, that’s not bad; $25/hand for six hours could add up pretty quickly though!

  2. Atlantis terms and conditions don’t seem to specify what Atlantis terms and conditions don’t seem to specify what the level of play is required for the six hours. Anyone?

  3. Headline is a bit misleading. The Atlantis promo is referring to casino status, not hotel status.

  4. Considering that most Las Vegas casinos don’t rate your play unless you are betting $25/hand at Black Jack so I don’t think this is a $5/hand for 6 hours offer. It would have been perfect as I was already planning a trip to Atlantis at the end of June.

  5. But guys, remember, Vegas is the top of the pack… Anyone been to Atlantis before? I would assume table minimums are $5, and that they would rate you at that. Regardless, you could tread water on a craps table or backjack that long over a time period of 4 days no problem. Craps you should be able to do things like bet 6 & 8 or just the pass line and 6/8 and tread water for a long time since it’s a slow game. I would say you’d need to be prepared to drop $600 though playing min’s like that. The sucky part would be that you couldn’t necessarily quit when up. Some of you would gamble that long anyway so it might be worth it.

  6. Also agree that craps would be the way to go- pass line with (max) odds to have a chance.

    FWIW looks like you can also get in on this deal with Harrah’s Total Rewards Platinum which is available with their credit card
