Just read this in the “Seven Stars Insider,” telling about a freebie for Harrah’s customers who have a Seven Stars players card:
Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon Offers Free Grub
Show your Seven Stars card at the Victorian Café and you and your party eat free! There doesn’t seem to be any dollar limit, and you order off the regular menu. Bill’s is located across from Caesars Palace and next to the Flamingo. As always, because policies can change on a moment’s notice, be sure to confirm this offer with the host/hostess before being seated – and remember to tip accordingly! Bill’s is owned by Caesars Entertainment and considered a “casino partner”, but does not participate in the Total Rewards program.
I just called and they told me there were no limits for the size of your party or the amount of the bill.
