WSOP Players to Receive Total Rewards Credits for Playing in Bracelet Events


Good news for those planning to play this year’s World Series of Poker (WSOP): tournament entrants will now receive Total Rewards credits for playing in events, including official bracelet events, daily Deepstack tournaments, and Mega-Satellites. In addition, similar credits will also be awarded on the upcoming 2012-13 WSOP Circuit tour at Caesars Entertainment venues across the country.

"Caesars Entertainment is renewing our commitment to poker players,” said Ty Stewart, the World Series of Poker executive director. “We are thrilled the WSOP will help launch a company initiative to allow poker players to better unlock the power of the industry’s best loyalty program. With nearly 40 properties worldwide and the number one tournament series in the world, we hope to give more players more opportunities to earn, and redeem for whatever is important to them.”

The new rewards system means the customary food voucher is out, as players will have rewards added directly to their Total Rewards card, which can be used throughout Caesars properties to redeem for the following:

  • Tournament entry fees (for both WSOP and WSOP Circuit Events at Caesars-owned properties)
  • Dining (including the Poker Kitchen at the WSOP)
  • Hotel Accommodations
  • Entertainment
  • Travel
  • Merchandise
  • Gift Cards

For WSOP events, Tournament Reward credits will be based on the event’s buy-in; for example, players will receive 3,000 Reward Credits for the $10,000 buy-in. As always, any bracelet winner will automatically be rewarded with Diamond status on their Total Rewards card, which provides players with a series of benefits including access to Diamond Lounges around the country.

    Same here.. although if i had the energy, i'd walk the 100 yards or so through the parking garage to TGI Friday's at the Gold Coast.. BBQ spare ribs... yum.
    One brand new (to me) eatery is a DimSum joint near the Rio poker room. Good food at a good price. Had to ask what "dim sum" means and she said it translated to something like breakfast-lunch.. ?
    There's nothing like this white boy's idea of breakfast on that menu.. seems to be all hot dinners to me. Mostly seafood iirc.

    I liked the meal tickets, and it wasn't about the money. More often than not, I'd leave a $5 or even $10 tip for a $15 restaurant meal.. which is fun to do, and scores points with the serving staff if you're gonna eat there for a week or two.

    Rather have the food comp. They were the usually the only reason I rarely bothered to eat somewhere besides the Rio last year.

    Credits are based on rake.. ok.
    Thanks for posting the list. It does make things clearer.

    I can appreciate the effort to include poker players in these Player's Club arrangements. It has been slightly disturbing to drop many thousands during a week of play and find that the House doesn't even notice.
    While most are making headway, a lot of casinos are way behind the times. Even the Venetian, which I consider a leader in tournament structure and poker player amenities, still puts rewards points earned during poker play in a separate category for some reason.
