Casino Points


Recommended Posts

Casino loyalty points on board are earned similar to many land-based casinos. For regular slot machines, every five dollars bet equals one point. For poker machines it’s usually every ten dollars bet equals one point. That’s because the player has more control to affect the outcome on the poker machine. 

Keep in mind…it’s not how much you put into the machine, but how much play you get. For instance, putting in ten dollars should give you two points…five dollars a point. But, if you put in ten dollars and are lucky enough to hit for twenty dollars and keep playing, you can earn six points. Your total bets equal thirty dollars even though you only put in ten. Many machines can give you quite a bit of play…win some lose some…over an extended period and your ten dollars can result in you earning many more points. It’s not the amount you put in…but how many times you bet five dollars.

Table games have different rules. Based on the type of game, the amount bet and the total time played. Many players change their bet amounts while they play. Those rules are not as clear as the slot machines and it can be difficult to keep track of what you are earning while you’re playing. You can always ask the pit boss.

Hi Brian, 

I've seen people in group chats say they walk out with 7000 or more points from being on the penny slot and better 88 cents to $1.88. How are they walking away with these kind of points if you are saying you need to bet $5 to gain a point? I mean, I also get they may hit a jackpot of a couple thousand as well. Is that how?

Great examples: 

My mom and I played slots on Allure, she put in $60 the entire cruise and just kept winning. She ended up with over 700 points for that $60. I put in $700 ($100 a night) over the duration and ended up with less than 700 points. So for her the cost of each point was like 10 cents, and for me it was over a dollar. It just all depends on your luck and whether or not you leave that money in and keep playing.

@Julanna Some machines have bets as low as twenty five cents a spin, or even lower. You still need to bet five dollars to get one point. So you would need to spin twenty times at twenty five cents a spin to earn one point. Some machines have a maximum bet of twenty dollars a spin…so each spin will earn four points. Each five dollars equals one point.

You can earn thousands of points by playing over a long period of time even on penny slots. It takes a lot of time to do it. For instance, betting .88 cents a spin a on a penny machine will take nearly six spins to earn one point. But, if you’re lucky, you may find yourself on a machine that gives lots of play for your money. Otherwise, you would need to keep feeding the machine to keep playing. I like to find what I call a ‘points’ machine. Those are machines that I know have a history of good play. They may not have as many jackpots, but they win just enough to keep playing…and keep earning points.

Jackpots have no effect on points. Someone can put in twenty dollars, and on their last spin win a thousand dollar jackpot. They still earned only four points. One point for each five dollars.

These points are typically earned by participating in various casino games, and yes, that includes craps. The more you play, the more points you accumulate. It's like getting a little extra something for enjoying your favorite games.Casinos often have loyalty programs in place where you can redeem these points for a range of perks. These rewards can vary from complimentary meals at the casino's restaurants to free rooms for your stay. Some casinos even offer the option to convert your points into additional gaming credits, giving you more chances to try your luck.So, whether you're rolling the dice at the craps table or trying your hand at other online casino games, keep an eye on those Casino Points.
