The Sweepstakes of
Loyalty Programs at Casino.com

One of the more recent online casinos to get reviewed
here at OCS is the popular Playtech Software powered
site, Casino.com. An easy name to remember for sure, one
of the reasons Casino.com came to our attention in the
first place was because of their newly vamped Loyalty
Program. In fact, it is no stretch to say that
Casino.com now offers one of the most comprehensive
loyalty programs on the internet. Their comp point
redemption program is assuredly the best we've seen.
There is so much free merchandise offered here,
Casino.com comes the closest to a true sweepstakes club
an online casino can get.
Like most other casino loyalty programs, Casino.com
offers comp points for every real money wager made. In
essence, any player who makes a real money wager becomes
a member of Casino.com's "Loyalty Lounge". The rate of
exchange is better than most online casinos, at 2 points
for every $10 wagered. Furthermore, Casino.com offers a
monthly rotation of online slots that award 5 points for
every $10 wagered.
As points add up, players are given loyalty
membership statuses, beginning at "Lobby" status and
climbing up eight levels to "Millionaire's Club" status.
Rewards increase for each status, and all the while
players can redeem comp points for merchandise in
Casino.com's Loyalty Shop. Monthly bonus rewards begin
at $200 for the Lobby level and climb all the way up to
$5,000 per month at the Millionaire's Club level. The
lower four levels receive internal withdrawal processing
times of 72 hours, while the top four levels receive 48
hour processing times, increased withdrawal/deposit
limits, increased table limits and VIP Hospitality. The
top two levels of this casino loyalty program receive 24
hour host service.
As for the aforementioned Loyalty Shop, this is where
Casino.com transcends into something of a sweepstakes
service. Although you must wager money to earn comp
points (which most of us are going to do anyways), in
essence, all of the merchandise in the loyalty shop is
free. Everything from books and golf clubs to flat
screen televisions and Porsche sports cars can be
purchased with comp points. Of course, you would need to
be a high roller to win the Porsche. But then again, it
would only take a big jackpot win to help make that a
reality as well.
In the grand scheme of things, most all of the
merchandise is within reach to the average player. Like
the name of the program, "Loyalty Lounge", players are
rewarded for their loyalty to Casino.com. The more loyal
you are, the more you can cash out. Read OCS's
