Eat to win at Caesars buffet

Caesars Palace lavished lucky guest Tianshu Sun with spa treatments, free food and a two-night stay in the hotel, all for eating at the buffet. Sun was the 1 millionth guest to dine at the Bacchanal buffet. The buffet, which celebrates its one-year anniversary Tuesday, averages more than 3,000 diners a day.

The president of Caesars Palace greeted Sun in front of the buffet. Sun receives two nights at Caesars Palace, spa treatments at Qua Bath & Spa and, most important, unlimited, free, VIP access to Bacchanal through her stay.
