hi all,
i read alot of players being given loyalty bonus's for there consistant play at certain casinos, now im not a huge time player but i would say im a consistant player, so what would the chances that i would ever get say a free chip at a certain casino without having to deposit, for example say ive played at ladbrokes say a few times a month for say 2 years am i worthy of a bonus or must i be playing say every day or something?

most of my recent play (last few months) has been at 3dice which i love as a casino through and through, do they give loyalty bonus's out free? not that im begging for one its just interesting to read how people get them at certain places.

cheers all

Good casino operations (online and off) will 'comp' proven, regular customers. The amounts and how this is done varies wildly from casino to casino -- and is entirely at the discretion of the management concerned.

There's no specific answer to your question... Ladbrokes (I believe, I've never had a lot of experience with them!) are much more 'promotion' and 'bonus' based as opposed to 'loyalty' - but VM or KK or CM will no doubt 'chip' in with more detail.

Dear ssgtsnelly,

Most reputable casinos will generally give some sort of comp to regular / semi regular customers. This could be a free chip, some free spins on your fav game, it really does depend on the amount you wager.

The casino I am currently consulting for casino-for-me.com has all the comps described on the website, so you can see exactly how your play will be rewarded. Most casinos do not like to display these tables for whatever reason, however I hope you will find them helpful.

If you send me a PM I might be able to sort you out a free comp :)

Regards,

Dazzla

though i think most casinos have some sort of comp program, there are only a few who go "above and beyond" in regards to rewarding their loyal players. if you consistently play somewhere and you feel you are hitting some bad runs or just need an extra boost, i see no problem asking if you qualify for a free chip once in a while. it's the same thing as asking for a free room, show, or meal at a b & m casino from your casino host. since you will lose money to the casino over time, bonuses and free chips are a measure of how much a casino appreciates your business and how important it is to them that you have a good experience during your play there.

It does vary a lot and obviously is discretionary. Some casinos tend to reward big players while others appreciate the smaller player. Some do a monthly, either fixed or discretionary, some none at all. The best ones for discretionary loyalty in my experience include 3Dice and 32Red/Dash with regular (scheduled) bonuses most prolific at the old Casino Action group (RIP), Roxy Palace and All Jackpots. Always found the UK brands like Laddies, Will Hill, Virgin, Blue Square etc a bit more stingy on that front - well...more geared up to larger wagering at least. (Bet) Fred claims to be the "bonus king"...maybe he's worth a call ;)

i just wouldnt feel right generally asking for a bonus for nothing but saying that i have put a decent amount the way of 3dice over the last few months so if enzo or any of guys over there fancy being kind then i wont say not.

also a big thanks to darren at Casino for Me for his hospitality. :)

:D Baring in mind I'm a low roller who (almost) never deposits without claiming a bonus, I have had very few free-chips in my time.
Apart from the occasional $5 or $10 birthday gift from a couple of places, the only truly free chips (no WR) I have had were from 32Red & 3Dice.
I've certainly not had any from Ladbrokes - but they have been VERY generous with their scratchcards! ;)

yeah i think that might be my problem is that i rarely go above say 1 or MAYBE $3 a spin on some of the slots at 3dice and other places so im not a huge player so that is prob why i will never see any of these $250 free chips that people see, i think its just a good way of rewrding people for thier patronage as was said earlier :)

ive pretty much limited my play to 3dice and ladbrokes now as i find them the best to deal with with each having certain benefits.

If you've lost a lot in the past few months, that would no doubt help any free 'loyalty' chips :rolleyes:

I guess casino's look at style of play too? I must be a dream customer in that I'll regularly double, triple, quadruple whatever my deposit -- only to double, triple, quadruple whatever my bet size and pour it all back in :D

I very rarely cashout unless it's SERIOUS profit - so I'm generally a good customer, only hitting their banks every now and again! Moreover, the free chips I'm given are almost always played straight through for the fun of it - so I'm low risk from that perspective too.

That said, I did make a nice return on a free chip just this weekend - but they'll see that again in no time!

I think it comes down to how well a casino knows you, and whether or not they think you're 'good business' long term.

At the most time it depends on it, how much you've deposit/wager.

As an example, on iNetBet you get every month a "manager bonus" but the max cash out is there only 10 tiem and you have to wager it 10 times before you can cash out!

On Bodog i get my loyality money directly within two days and it's the most time nearly 10% from my whole deposit, but i get it only, if i lose my last deposit, so it's like an Cash Back Bonus, because i can withdraw it directly, if i want and there is no max cashout on it :)

i can totally understand that a casino would want you to at least play a free chip through a few times before you could withdraw it, but then we are all here to play so it would be financially better to withdraw it but then you have had no fun. well after what you have all said ive got no hope of getting one from ladbrokes it seems so only hope is 3dice where i have won big before but at the same time lost big too :S
