How to Earn Caesars Rewards at Caesars Palace
The Caesars Rewards program offers two main types of rewards. Tier Credit establishes your player status at the resort as Gold, Platinum, Diamond or Seven Stars. Reward Credit determines how many points you have to spend at Caesars Palace Las Vegas or other Caesars properties.
You may also get free room offers, and using them has no impact on your Rewards Credits. To check for offers, visit Caesars Rewards, log into your account, click on Profile and then on My Offers. Don’t register for a Rewards Card online because activating the account will trigger first time bonus offers like Match Bets or Free Play. The promotions are good for one day only, so don’t sign up until you’re in the casino.
Earn When you Book Your Room
For every Tier Credit earned, you receive one Reward Credit. Tier Credits have no dollar value and each Reward Credit equals one cent. That means you would have to accumulate 100 Reward Credits to earn $1. Hotel guests receive one Tier Credit and one Reward Credit for every $1 spent on rooms and resort fees. Reservations must be booked on the hotel’s website. The Octavius Tower and the Augustus Tower share a reputation for opulence.
Collect Rewards While Drinking, Dining and Enjoying Shows
There is so much fabulous food at this Las Vegas Strip hotel and casino, it would be easy to eat your way to Seven Stars status. Earn one Tier and one Reward Credit for every $1 spent at participating Caesars Palace restaurants including Bobby Flay’s new Italian restaurant Amalfi, Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, Beijing Noodle No. 9, Pronto by Giada and the Bacchanal Buffet. Accumulate credits at most bars on the property and when purchasing tickets to see top performers like Rod Stewart. The legendary rock star is performing in May 2022 at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
Shop and Earn
Does your dream vacation involve spending money outside the casino? You may feel like you’re outdoors in Rome, but you’re really strolling through the Forum Shops inside Caesars Palace. Earn one Tier and one Reward Credit for every $1 spent at participating stores including Caesars Activewear, Caesars Exclusively and Emperor’s Essentials.
Relax and Earn
Spend the day getting wet and earn one of each type of credit for every $1 spent on sundries, drinks and other purchases at the pool. Guests can also use the fitness center and earn rewards while unwinding at Qua Spa & Salon and Color Salon.
Comps and Promotions
How Comps are Calculated
In the long run, the house keeps a piece of every dollar a gambler risks in a casino. That’s why employees at Las Vegas casinos are happy to offer rewards to loyal gamblers. Comps are based on the average dollar amount a player is expected to lose each day, known as average daily theoretical [ADT]. It’s the way a casino calculates what a player is worth to them. Slot machines are the most profitable way to raise your ADT.
To calculate your ADT, the pit boss observes your play. He records how much you cashed in and out for, how long you stayed at the table and how much you bet. Typically, an average bet of $25 per hand is required to have your play rated at a Las Vegas Strip hotel casino. One way in which ADT is determined is by the expected loss of the game, multiplied by how long you play multiplied by the size of your wager. In the end, the casino comes up with a dollar figure representing how much it expects you to lose each day, and comps you around 20 to 30% of that amount.
Hotel and casino guests who gamble a lot can request comps, and sometimes they will be granted. Charge everything to your room and before checkout, contact a casino host or speak to the person behind the rewards desk. Ask them to review your play and see if they can remove any of your charges.
How to get More Comps
Remember to put your players card in the machine or hand it to the dealer, but not every time you’re in the casino. When you don’t plan to gamble long or invest much money, leave your card in your wallet. Here’s why: put $500 into play over five hours on Saturday, then blow off $50 before your flight on Sunday and you’ll ruin your good rating. Go ahead and play on Sunday, just don’t use your players card.
It may not be what you had planned, but you’ll earn the most comps by depleting your entire gambling budget in one day at the same casino. Gambling $600 during the same day will earn you a much higher rating and more free stuff than betting $200 in chips each day for three days.
Always Take Advantage of Promotions
From time to time, Caesars Rewards offers multipliers, giving guests bonus credits for every dollar spent. In late December 2021, a 5x Tier Credit multiplier event meant anyone lucky enough to be at a Caesars property could rack up Tier credits at record speed. The extra credits aren’t applied automatically. Make sure to register for all promotions.
Use a Casino Host
Think of your casino host as a concierge at a hotel. A host will remember the things that you like and get you good comps. Big betters are often pursued by casino hosts. If that hasn’t happened, a player can ask the rewards desk to check their play to see if they qualify for one.
Line of Credit
Most large casinos, including Caesars Palace, allow players to apply for a line of credit. This gives a player the freedom to gamble without carrying cash or being burdened by the constraints of daily ATM limits and fees. The minimum amount that can be requested is $2500. The application is on the resort’s website. If approved, the casino gives you a marker that can be traded to the dealer for chips. Typically, a player has 30 days to pay off a marker, but the casino prefers you settle up before check-out.

Games at Caesars Palace Casino
If you’re serious about earning comps and have the bankroll, video poker offers some of the best odds in the casino. The house edge is small and the player can make mathematically perfect moves with the help of strategy charts you can find online or in casino gift shops. The game moves slowly, so you will get a fair amount of entertainment value for your expected loss.
You’re dealt five cards on a video monitor. You choose to hold or discard any or all your cards. Press the hold button under each card you want to keep and spin the reels to replace the rest.
Caesars has seven six-deck blackjack tables paying 3:2, double after split, late surrender. Betting is: $25 to $2,500; $50 to $5,000; 100 to $10,000; and $200 to $10,000.
The way to win at blackjack is to come closer to 21 than the dealer without busting. A set of rules, called basic strategy, reduces the casino’s edge to .05% when followed perfectly. Draw a 16 for a starting hand, and you may not want to hit, but when the dealer’s up card is a 7 or 8, basic strategy says to do it. When the table doesn’t allow surrender, hit on a 10 – ace as well. Basic strategy charts are available online and at casino gift shops, and it’s okay to use them at the table as long as you don’t slow down the game.
Card counters gain an edge over the house by keeping track of how many high cards [10 – ace] and how many low cards [2 -6] are left in the deck. When there are more high cards left, the counter starts to raise his bets, and may play more than one hand at a time. When there are more low cards left, the counter places the minimum bet or leaves the table.
Caesars Palace has four Double Zero and three Triple Zero roulette wheels with limits at $15, $200 and $2000. The game starts when the dealer spins a roulette wheel with 38 slots numbered 1 to 36, zero and double zero. The dealer releases a ball and players test their luck by picking the slot where the ball will land. Place a $10 chip on a single lucky number and it’s called a straight bet. Get your $10 dollars back plus an additional $350 if you win. It’s a long shot, but at 35:1, it has the highest payout ratio at the table.
Caesars Palace has six craps tables, with limits ranging from $15 to $5000. Have you ever noticed that everyone at the craps table feels like your friend? The players are animated and familiar. It’s almost as if the gamblers at the table had known you their entire lives.
Most of them—90% according to a recent study—bet on the Pass Line, or with the shooter. With a Pass Line bet, the whole table can cheer for the same side and celebrate wins together. The Don’t Pass Line bet is a wager against the shooter.
The player is encouraged by his tablemates as he shoots the dice on his come out roll, aiming for a seven or 11. Shoot a natural and all bets on the Pass Line get paid. Roll two, three or 12 and lose instantly. Hit a four, five, six, eight, nine or 10 and that becomes your come out point. To win the bet, roll your point again before rolling a seven.
This is a good game for gamblers with great instincts and a feeling about what’s coming next, because baccarat is a guessing game. A player has to decide who will have the winning hand before the cards are dealt. The player has three choices: the player, the banker or a tie.
A nine is the best hand in the game of Baccarat. If the player or banker draws an eight or nine, he wins. If the totals are both nine or eight, it’s a tie. Draw any other number and the dealer consults the rule book. A bet on the banker gives the best odds.
More than 1,300 one-arm bandits line the casino floor at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. Denominations start at a penny, and go up to $500 per spin. Play your favorite slot machines including Triple Double Diamond, Wheel of Fortune and Buffalo. Feeling lucky? This could be the time you win the progressive jackpot, so keep betting max if that’s your goal.
Caesars Palace is home to a 4,500-square-foot poker room that has recently relocated to the heart of the casino floor. Find the poker room between the Colosseum and the Race & Sports Book. It has cash tables and four daily tournaments with buy-ins from $100 to $150 with a $50 add-on. The top two prize pools pay $2000 each. Poker players are motivated to bring their gambling money to Caesars Palace because the poker room pays comps at a rate of $2 an hour. This is unheard of as $1 an hour is the norm all over Las Vegas.
Pai Gow Poker
One of the ways this poker variant differs from conventional hold’em is that the player places a bet before seeing his cards. A Pai Gow deck has 53 cards including a joker, which can substitute as an ace or complete a straight or flush.
The hand rankings are the same as in Hold ‘em with two exceptions. A wheel [ace – five straight] is the lowest straight in traditional poker, but in Pai Gow, it’s the second highest, only behind 10 – ace. Next, four aces and a joker is called five of a kind and it replaces a royal flush as the highest ranking hand in the game.
The Pai Gow Poker player has to make two hands: a two card hand and one with five cards. The five card hand has to out rank the two card hand which can only be high cards or a pair. Beat both of the dealer’s hands to win at Pai Gow Poker.
Let it Ride Poker
Unlike at a traditional poker table, you’re not competing with the players seated around you at a Let it Ride game. Their cards mean nothing and the dealer’s don’t matter either. Only the player’s cards are important in Let it Ride. Draw a pair of 10’s or better and make even money. Hit a royal flush and get paid 1000:1. Make a pair smaller than tens and you lose the hand.
Once you see your hand, tuck your cards under your first bet, if you like what you’ve been dealt, and Let it Ride. Not thrilled with your cards? Scratch them on the table to signal the dealer that you want to Pull Back your first bet. Face down on the felt are two community cards which can be used by any player to improve the strength of his hand. The first community card is revealed and the player can Let it Ride or Pull Back his second bet, but the third bet remains on the table. After the dealer shows the second community card, he turns over all the players’ hands and identifies winners.
Three Card Poker
The rankings are the same as with traditional poker with a few exceptions. In Three Card Poker, three of a kind beats a straight, and a straight beats a flush. Straights and flushes in this game only require three cards to be complete.
To start the game, place a bet on the ante or the middle triangle. Three cards will be dealt to each player and the dealer. If you like your cards and want to continue, put an equal bet on the play, or the bottom triangle, and position your cards face down under your chips. Prefer to fold? Place your cards face down in front of your first bet.
You don’t have anyone to beat except the dealer, so any king high or better is too good to fold. You win your ante bet only if the dealer doesn’t have queen high or better when he reveals his cards. Whoever has the best hand wins at showdown, and the player is paid even money.
Pair Plus is a side bet that the player will draw a pair or better. The house advantage on this bet is a hefty 7.29%. Pair Plus pays even money for a pair up to 40:1 for a straight flush. A Six Card Bonus is a side bet that looks at the best five card hand you can make using all your cards and the dealer’s cards. It takes three of a kind or higher to win.
