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
- 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.
