Wynn Resorts recently announced the debut of Wynn Rewards in Las Vegas. The loyalty rewards program replaces Wynn’s Red Card loyalty program. While this is new to Las Vegas, Wynn Rewards was rolled out earlier in 2020 at Encore Boston Harbor. The program now works at casinos on both sides of the country. In a press release, the company says that Wynn Rewards “offers the finest rewards at the world’s largest Five-Star resort, presenting members with an unmatched level of personalized offers and experiences.”
“Without exception, the benefits that Wynn Rewards can unlock at Wynn Las Vegas are second-to-none,” said Marilyn Spiegel, president of Wynn Las Vegas. “We invite our guests to take advantage of the most comprehensive rewards program Wynn has ever created, and experience the best luxuries our resort has to offer.”
Spiegel’s comments sound legit. However, I’m not sure that Wynn Rewards will have better and more personalized offers than others but it does offer an upgrade for many guests. It will take some time to see the actual effects of Wynn Rewards.
Wynn Rewards Tiers
There are quite a few improvements from the old Wynn rewards program. Wynn Rewards includes three member tiers: Red, Platinum, and Black.
The old program didn’t offer any kind of tier or status system. Not only are the tiers aspirational but they offer transparency. Players can now see specific benefits they’ll receive based on how much they spend. Guests had to call a host to see if they qualified for discounts and comps under the old program.
Red: Entry level 0-6,999 tier credits
Platinum: 7,000-69,999 tier credits
Black: 70,000 tier credits or more
As you’d imagine, each tier comes with more benefits. Since this is a casino rewards program with only three tiers, guests will see significant upgrades at each tier. Some loyalty programs with more tiers offer smaller upgrades for each tier. The improvements aren’t as drastic.
Tier Credits are earned based on average bet, type of game, and length of play. The credits can be earned for play on select reel slots, video poker machines, and table games.
Wynn Rewards Slot Points
One of the biggest improvements of Wynn Rewards for many casino guests will be the ability to earn slot points. The previous version of the rewards program didn’t offer this at all. Players can now earn slot points for “FREECREDIT” towards free slot play.
In addition, Wynn Rewards members can now earn “COMPDOLLARS” while playing table games and slot machines. These can be redeemed for a wide selection of amenities, including hotel rooms, spa and salon treatments, fine dining, golf, and more.
Different games require different amounts of dollars to be played. For every 500 slot points earned using your Wynn Rewards card at Wynn and Encore Las Vegas, you will receive $5 in FREECREDIT.
- Slots: Earn 1 point for every $5 coin in
- Video Poker: Earn 1 point for every $10 or $20 coin in (based on the game)
Check the slot machine before inserting a Wynn Rewards card to make sure you receive points.
One thing to note about earning slot points is that higher tier levels earn points faster. Platinum tier members earn a 20% bonus on credits earned. Black tier members earn a 30% bonus.
FREECREDIT offers guests free play rewards. COMPDOLLARS offers guests rewards that can be used throughout Wynn Las Vegas. COMPDOLLARS may be redeemed only at restaurants, retail stores and other amenities at the casino. You can see a full list of venues here.
Earning COMPDOLLARS isn’t as clear as FREECREDITS. This information is likely to change since the formula isn’t public. What we do know is that COMPDOLLARS are earned while playing select reel slots, video poker machines, and table games. The dollars rewarded are based on players average bet, type of game played
Note that sports bets, poker, electronic table games, and some slot machines don’t reward players with COMPDOLLARS.
