Online Casino VIP Loyalty Programs for Australian & Kiwi Players

Added: September 4, 2014

Almost every online casino today runs some kind of loyalty rewards program for registered members. These programs are also known as rewards schemes, VIP programs, loyalty points programs, or words to that effect. The aim of these rewards programs is relatively straightforward – play in the real money mode to earn redeemable loyalty points (also known as Frequent Player Points or FPP).

You can then exchange your points for some great rewards such as free spins for selected online pokies, casino credits which you can spend in the casino, or for real cash. Some online casinos even allow you to exchange points for certain real-world items as well such as merchandise, dinner nights out and much more.

Most of today’s Microgaming and Playtech casinos have some fantastic loyalty rewards programs for Australian and New Zealand players. To earn the most points, you generally have to play on any of the pokies or on any of the scratchcards. For example, some casinos might rewards you with 10 loyalty points for every AU$ / NZ$10.00 wagered on the pokies/scratchies, but you might only be able to earn 1 loyalty point for every AU$ / NZ$10.00 wagered on games like All Aces Video Poker, Roulette and Blackjack.

This is pretty much the same with all online casino loyalty programs. In other words, stick to playing on the pokies and scratchies if you really want to rapidly build up your loyalty point’s balance. The Palace Group and Vegas Partner Lounge (VPL) are two trusted online casino operators which run some lucrative loyalty/VIP programs. At the Vegas Partner Lounge Casinos (such as Casino-Mate), you can earn C-Bucks (loyalty points) while playing on your PC, Laptop or Mobile device.

As soon as you have earned a minimum of 500 C-Bucks, you can then head to the cashier and exchange those 500 C-Bucks for 2 casino credits. If you can hang on a bit longer though and wait until you have earned 1000 C-Bucks, this will get you 5 casino credits. Most Loyalty Programs also have several different ‘levels’ or ‘tiers’ to advance through. Each new level has better benefits than the previous level.

You will start on the lowest level and then the more you play in the casino, the quicker you can climb through the ranks. The lowest level of loyalty with the VPL rewards program is Green, then there’s the Silver Lounge, the Gold Lounge and the Platinum Lounge. Other rewards programs could have just three levels of loyalty, up to usually no more than eight different levels.
