Diamond in a Day for 2016??

Just curious what would be the easiest casino to get Diamond in a Day? I am thinking Windsor since the US Dollar is strong there

Easiest? I believe they are all the same now. 15,000 Tier = Diamond

Achievable by one day of 5,000 Tier (Base) play; which awards somewhat more due to the spring promotion. (5,000 Tier (base) gets a daily bonus of 10,000)

5000 TC + 10000 Tier Credit Bonus = 150000 + (50%) = 22500 TC Total
We outline this on my website, which discusses the spring tier bonus. (I am associated with the site/link below)

"Best play" would be full pay video poker that awards 1 tier (base) per $10 coin-in. (Many venues now have a different video poker earning scale for full pay, or close to full pay machines.)

There seems to be an error in this article, as it claims the tier credits from spend will add with the tier credits for gaming from the same day. In my experience this is not the case, as per Total Rewards' website, hospitality tier credits post 3 days after the spend, and hotel tier credits post 10 days later.

Have you had different experience? Would be good to know if the spend and gaming credits can somehow be combined.

Big error We did add a correction. Oh, how I love Total Rewards.

11th April 2016 | Article Correction Note : Spend DOES NOT qualify for a Daily Tier Credit Bonus, though Spend will count towards the Spring Tier Credit Bonus if you earn at least 1000 TC between April 1 and June 30 and Opt In to the promotion.

Are you sure spend doesn't count for the daily TC bonus? Because I have definitely gotten bonus TCs for hotel folio charges, so as long as it's charged to the room it should work.

The problem is the posting (date). I thought the same. But, your spend Tier Credits do not post for a few days.

I believe that is the issue, and rather than coming up with a "proper" IT solution, they just exclude your daily spend from the daily tier bonus.

Now, that doesn't mean (totally my assumption) that it could not count on another day.

Day #1 you spend, spend posts Tier Credit on day #4 and you happen to also play on day #4 so that spend is part of the day #4 total tier earned (which qualifies for a daily bonus). But, not 100% sure about this. And I do not believe there is any EXACT guarantee on what day (or how long) it takes for tier credits from spend to post.
