When you register an account with an online casino and then make your first ever deposit, you will instantly be enrolled into the casino’s Loyalty Rewards Program. This is also known as a VIP Rewards Scheme or Loyalty Points Scheme, or words to that effect. You can basically earn redeemable ‘frequent player points’ each time you play in the real money mode.
Most online casino loyalty rewards programs are fundamentally the same, but the bonuses that you can claim will vary slightly from one online casino to the next. You will also find that some games will earn you more points-per-dollar-wagered than other games, so always read through the T’s and C’s to find out which games can earn you the most points.
Most loyalty rewards programs have more than one status level available and the more you play, the higher up the loyalty ladder you will climb. The perks & benefits will greatly improve with each new level that you make it to. Also remember that you have to keep on earning X amount of points per month to retain your current level.
If you fail to earn enough points within a four week period, you will either be bumped back down to the previous level, or you may need to start all over again from the lowest level. If you want to earn a great deal of points in a short space of time, the best thing that we can recommend for you is to play on the online pokies and on any of the online scratchcards. Try to avoid playing on games like blackjack, All Aces video poker, roulette, and most other table & card games. These games will earn you the least amount of points per dollar wagered.
As you climb through the different levels of loyalty, you will be able to take advantage of things like higher deposit & withdrawal limits, higher spending limits, access to a personal accounts manager, access and invitations to exclusive real world events and online casino tournaments, as well as exclusive bonus offers, frequent deposit bonus specials, cash back specials, 2X, 3X, 4X and 5X loyalty point days and much more.
As soon as you have earned enough points, you can also then head to the casino’s cashier section and convert those points for real cash. The points-per-dollar ratio will vary somewhat at today’s online casinos, but they are pretty much relative based on how much you spend in the casino. At some online casinos you may be able to earn 1 point per $10 wagered and at other casinos it might be 1 point for every $5 wagered and some online casinos will may make you wait until you have earned 1000 points before you can exchange them, whereas other casinos might allow you to convert as soon as you have earned 500 points.
