What are Slots Clubs

What are Slots Clubs

Slots clubs are basically enrollment programs that players sign up for as members. There is no charge to join, but lots of benefits. The concept is simple. Once a player enrolls as a member, the casino will issue a member card with the player's name and card number. These cards are inserted into the machines prior to play and automatically track the player's betting action. The more action a player gives the casino, the greater the benefits he or she enjoys just for playing the machines. And what could be better?

For example, in some casinos, players can accrue enough credits after approximately just one hour of action at the $1 machines, or 2-3 hours at the 25-cent machines, that they can qualify for benefits. Benefits and comps are all a function of the amount of money played. And that, in casino parlance, is called action. Action, to a casino is not some theoretical concept. It's the total amount of money played. For example, if you're playing $1 video poker, five coins at a time, and play 500 spins, you've given the casino $2,500 worth of action, 500 spins by $5 each. If you're playing quarters, five at a time to a machine, and play 1,000 spins, your action is equal to 5,000 quarters, or $1,250.

Note that the action given to a machine or a casino is not measured by how much you've won or lost, but the total amount of plays multiplied by the amount bet. Thus using, our above example at the $1 machines, where you've won $115 overall, or lost $115, to the casino, your action is still that same $1,500. Plenty good to start earning comps, and really good if you've got a $115 profit to show as well.

And that's why slots clubs are so great. If you're going to be playing the machines anyway, you're guaranteed "winnings," so to speak, by dint of the simple face that your action is earning rewards. For example, if you're playing the 25-cent slots for several hours and drop $23 at the machines, but earn two free $15 dinner comps, you're not feeling so bad. You've come out ahead of the game.

These slots cards are great tracking devices that not only record a player's total action, the total amount of money wagered at the machine, but keep track of a player's behavior so that the casinos can better understand their customers, the machines they like to play and in what denominations, and how long each machine is played.

Each casino has its own slots program, some with greater benefits than others. But all are worth joining if you plan to play slots at a casino, and especially if you plan on playing a lot of slots.

Slots clubs began as an experiment at the Sands casino in Atlantic City in 1982 as a method to attract and keep slots players in their casino. In 1984, the Golden Nugget introduced this concept to Las Vegas, and as they say the rest is history. Almost every casino today in Las Vegas or Atlantic City has an actively promoted slots club. The few that don't are at a tremendous marketing disadvantage. After all, why would serious slots or video poker players patronize a casino offering nothing special to attract their play when the casino next door has a great slots club with tons of inducements? The answer is simple; they wouldn't.

While the casinos are eager to induce players into their casinos with attractive slots club benefits, the players are just as eager to reap the rewards for doing what they were going to do anyway, playing the machines. The trick is learning to play the system for the full amount of the awards.
