Total Rewards loyalty program
Total Rewards is the benchmark of all casino players clubs and is used by all Caesars Entertainment casinos.
The rated play is shared with all properties, which may trigger offers in other markets. This is great for players who give action to regional casinos owned by the company but have an eye on a vacation to resorts in tourist destinations.
Video poker players earn points when using a Total Rewards card. The amount depends on the machine. The best machines at Harrah’s require $50 for one point. Some require $25, while others $10. Slots pay one point for every $5 wagered. Table games use a formula that depends on the game, limit, and time seated.
Total Rewards points may be redeemed for free play or food comps. Some outlets charge a premium on points. The best part of Total Rewards is the offers that come after a visit. These can range from free hotel rooms and free slot play, to complete packages that include airfare.
It all depends on the level of action a player gives. We recommend logging into Totalrewards.com regularly to see all offers, as some may not be mailed.
Total Rewards players who earn at least 15,000 base points have access to the Diamond Lounge. This special feature has free drinks and appetizers for guests.
