In this series of posts on Status Matching, I show you how to leverage your elite tier status in one loyalty program to obtain a similar tier in another. This particular match requires some effort, but the benefits are worth it. You can match MLife Gold to Total Rewards Diamond at any of Caesar’s Atlantic City resort locations. And if that’s not enough, you can then head over to the new Hard Rock and Ocean Resort Casinos for even more status matches.
Getting Total Rewards Diamond
In my last post of this series, I showed you how you can get MLife Gold from your Hyatt Explorist, Celebrity Cruises Captain’s Club Select or Royal Caribbean Diamond tier status. Now it’s time to leverage that MLife Gold even further.
Bring your MLife Gold ID card and personal identification to a Total Rewards desk at Caesar’s, Bally’s or Harrah’s in Atlantic City, NJ, and they’ll immediately bump you to Diamond. You can save time by joining Total Rewards and creating an account at totalrewards.com first, but it’s not necessary–you can do it right there.
This promotion ends on Labor Day weekend, so act fast if you can! Your Diamond status will be good until January 31, 2019.
Total Rewards Diamond Benefits
You can see the full lineup of Total Rewards Benefits here, but some of the highlights include:
- Complimentary 4-night stay at Atlantis, Paradise Island in The Bahamas
- Tier Status match with Wyndham Rewards (to be discussed in my next post)
- Discounts on select Norwegian Cruise Line® vacations
- Complimentary valet & self-parking at many destinations

Hard Rock and Ocean Resort Casino
When you’re done at the Total Rewards desk, take your Diamond ID card over to the new Hard Rock Atlantic City Casino. You can stop by their rewards desk and match your TR Diamond status to Rock Royalty. That’s the Hard Rock’s highest tier. For your last stop, head over to the Ocean Resort Casino. They’ll match your Rock Royalty status to their top Black Card tier.
Rock Royalty Benefits Include
- $150 Bonus Free Play
- Two complimentary nights
- One-time complimentary entry into Rock Royalty Lounge or Fresh Harvest Buffet for you and a guest
- Two complimentary tickets to Howie Mandel’s Comedy Club
Ocean Resort Black Card Benefits Include

All of this is going on in Atlantic City due to the opening of the new Hard Rock and Ocean Resort Casinos. New competition means casinos need to fight for customer loyalty. We get to reap the benefits.
If you can, head to Atlantic City this summer and spend an afternoon status matching. Then, spend the rest of your stay enjoying the perks!
