Comp Points on More Online Casino Games at 32Red

When it comes to earning comp points at online
casinos, unless you are a high roller, the conversion
rate is generally not worth a dime of salt. Goes to show
what kind of players the casinos value the most, eh? No
matter where you play the average comp point scheme will
award 1 point for every $10 wagered, which doesn't sound
bad. But when you consider that it takes 100 points to
convert into $1 of bonus cash, it has to make you wonder
"why bother?" Let's do the math, shall we?
If you indeed do the math (I think online casinos
presume most players don't bother to do the math or
simply don't know how), it would take $1,000 in bets to
earn $1 in bonus cash. That's 0.1% cash back. Again, you
might ask why even bother offering comp points when you
can just get cash back on all deposits and never-ending
reload bonuses? The reason is because cash converted
from comp points is not necessarily the same as a bonus
(although you still have to meet a play-through
requirement before cashing out, albeit much lower at
around 5x). In fact, an increasing number of online
casinos are now allowing players to redeem comp points
in for merchandise and gift cards.
Recently helping give comp point loyalty programs a
better name is
32Red Casino. This top-rated UK online
gambling destination recently upgraded it's "Red Rubies"
and "Club Rouge" loyalty programs by increasing the
number of games that contribute to comp points. Oh ya,
did I mention that most loyalty programs only award comp
points for wagers made on slots, keno and other games
with high House Edges? But not anymore at 32Red.
Now available for comp points as part of "Red Ruby
Rewards" (which all depositing players are signed up
for) are wagers made at Baccarat, Roulette, Table Poker,
War, Sic Bo, Red Dog, Blackjack and video poker, while
32Red's Club Rouge program (invite only) is giving a 33%
increase in comp points for slots wagers. For Red Ruby
Rewards this amounts to 1 point for every 10 wagered on
slots and keno, 20 wagered on Table Poker, War, Sic Bo
and Roulette, and 50 wagered on Blackjack, Baccarat and
Video Poker. Club Rouge conversion is much better at 1
point for every 10 wagered on Blackjack, Baccarat, Video
Poker, Sic Bo, Roulette, War, Red Dog, Table Poker,
Progressive Slots and even Craps, while 10 wagered at
slots and keno earns 3 comp points.
And for double comp points, 32Red offers "Ruby
Tuesday" (not to be confused with the restaurant chain)
on select games each month. Currently, 32Red's most
recently launched online casino games, including "Kung
Fu Monkey Goes to Chinatown", "Wooly World", "Pure
Platinum" and "Quest for Beer" are all offering double
comp points every Tuesday.
So, just when you thought online casino loyalty
programs were just a way to make you think you're
earning some serious comps, some online casinos like
32Red are stepping up what it means to show loyalty to
their players. It still isn't a free hotel stay in
Vegas, but at least it's better than nothing.
