Since all of the casino’s are desperate to get your gambling budget, they are more than willing to shell out free items if you’re willing to open your wallet. Las Vegas makes it’s money from gambling, not from food, drinks and hotel rooms. They are more than happy to give these away for free if you are willing to share your information with their marketing teams.
Top Tips for Maximizing your Points
1. Sign up for rewards – be sure to always sign up for a players loyalty card before laying down a bet, whether this is a larger bet at a table game or tossing a dollar into a slot machine. It all adds up.
2. Take your time – most casino rewards programs are based on a combination of the amount you are betting and the amount of time you are spending gambling. The longer you gamble the better chance that the odds will let the casino take all of your money so they are happy to reward you for spending hours at a table or machine.
3. Sign up before you go – if you are already a member of a rewards program be sure to visit their website and shop for a room before you book. Casinos have some of the best software for customer retention and you can be sure you’ll receive an email offer shortly after logging into their websites and searching.
4. Ask for a deal – don’t be afraid to call the front desk or ask a rewards program employee if you are eligible for any deals, including tickets to shows, meal vouchers or anything else you might be interested in. The worst they say is no and the best case they can pass over some free vouchers.
