Benefits of Casino Comps

by Gayle Mitchell

This lesson discusses the Benefits of Casino Comps at both online and land-based casinos. The object is to dispel some of the objections that may prevent players from signing on.
I do not understand why all slot players don’t sign up for a Club Card at every casino they visit. What are you afraid of--getting on a mailing list, receiving junk mail, too much hassle or “I value my privacy”?  Let us take these objections one at a time.
Here’s the worst thing that can happen to you--you get junk mail for free rooms or low rates, free food, cash voucher, birthday greetings plus promotional news. I will take that junk anytime!

Mailing lists are gold to casinos, so they are reluctant to share that information with other casinos that are not in their corporate group.
I know that Slot Hosts take their favorite clients’ info when they move to another casino job, but so what--more comps for you.
Gosh, you have to schlump (is that a word?) over to the casino promotions booth to sign-up and most of the time you get a free gift, cash-food voucher or a casino promotion specifically for new members.
Is that any more hassle that going to your bank or lifting up your mattress when you are gathering your gambling bankroll for a casino visit?
Easier still and to avoid schlumping, head for your favorite casino website and sign-up for comps online.
An additional benefit of casino comps and timesaver is to sign up for one-card to use at a group of casinos. I have provided a Listing of 9 US Casino Cards Merged.
The current and probably lasting trend is to combine several casino properties under one named Slot Club Card to form a MegaClub.
Use your card at all participating casinos to gather points.

1) Harrah’s--Total Rewards: Harrah’s properties plus Showboat Casino, AC, Harvey’s Casino, Lake Tahoe and Rio Casino, Las Vegas.
2) Park Place--Connection Card: Includes Bally’s, Caesars, Grand Casinos, Flamingo, Paris and Hiltons.
3) Isle of Capri--Isle One: All properties
4) Mandalay Resorts--One Club: Includes properties in Vegas, Reno, Detroit and Tunica.
5) MGM Mirage Card: Includes properties in Vegas, Detroit, Biloxi and Laughlin.
6) Station Casinos-- Includes 7 properties.
7) Fiesta--Amigo Club: Fiesta Henderson and Las Vegas.
8) Ultimate Rewards Club: Arizona Charlie’s East and West, Las Vegas and the Stratosphere, Las Vegas.
9) Coast Clubs in Vegas: Includes 5 properties.

For further details of participating casino locations, I suggest you search the internet or contact any one of the casinos in the group.
NOTE: This list is current at the time of writing but may change.

Additionally, online casinos offer Players Loyalty Rewards, Welcome and Daily Bonuses, Tournaments, Gift Cards plus one-club membership for several online casino groups.

You are adding to your precious bankroll by participating in the casino club online and off. Comps such as cash back, free food and rooms--all monies that you can add to your gambling pot.
Another Tip: when you sign up for comps, get two cards with the same name, so you and your partner can play on the same card to increase those points.

Further, as far as privacy--well wake up to the real world--we lost that years ago.
You cannot hide within this wired and wireless world. (that’s www. to you).
Of course, you do not have to divulge private information and yes, casinos are tracking your play but that’s to determine your qualifications for the many benefits of the club card. 

I received an e-mail from a reader who frequents casinos, but did not understand the benefits of casino comps and wanted to know more.
My reply: make a beeline for the promotions booth in any casino or the casino internet and sign up now. Let us all take a moment of silence for the points and benefits of casino comps this reader and others have not received.
Yikes, I cannot do it--it hurts my thrifty heart too much--ouch!

Do not play just for comps, but do take advantage of the benefits of casino comps. I do whenever I can.
