Atlantic City’s hot new property expands and upgrades its players club
By H. Scot Krause
Atlantic City’s newest resort, Revel, has launched a new and exciting rewards program that takes its gaming action to the next level. Guests can earn resort dollars property-wide and enjoy free Wi-Fi and complimentary offers just for playing, staying or partying at Revel.
The new club features three tier levels: Ocean, Beach and Pearl, each with increasing benefits as you move up the ladder. The Revel Card is unique to Atlantic City because members earn resort dollars in nearly every area of the resort, including the hotel, restaurants, nightlife venues, and of course, on the gaming floor. Additionally, Revel Card members never have to worry about conversion. Every resort dollar is worth the same dollar for dollar at every venue, even inside the retail shops and entertainment venues. Whether you game, stay, party, shop or dine, present your Revel Card to earn Resort Dollars and tier points Resort-wide. Then, you can begin redeeming your Resort Dollars immediately.
Upon signing up, players open the door to benefits by becoming an Ocean Card level member. (If you’re already member of the “old” Revel players club, your resort dollar balance will be unaffected when you become a member of the new club.) The initial level offers guests immediate complimentary Wi-Fi access, special offers, discounts, and invites to events—and based on your play, you can earn some special surprises as well.
The Resort Dollar earning rate varies based on the machine and denomination you are playing. You’ll see your Resort Dollars accumulate in real time as you play. Every 100 points equals 1 Resort Dollar. Unlike other casinos in Atlantic City, Resort Dollars are worth face value, resort-wide. There are no redemption conversions or penalties based on where or how you spend. It’s yours, so spend it however you want!
Whether you’re playing slots, tables, or poker, you’ll be earning. In fact, you earn everywhere you spend on the premises, so don’t forget to present your Revel Card whenever you visit areas of the resort away from the casino floor.
Accrue 50,000 tier points between Jan. 1–Dec. 31 this year, and you’ll become a Beach Card level member. When upgraded to Beach status, members receive all Ocean benefits as well as these additional perks:
—Complimentary self and valet parking
—2X base resort dollar multiplier every day
—Access to two Daily Dining Passports ($10 each/$30 value)
—Entrance to the Annual Beach Tournament
At Pearl Card level, things really become exciting. By earning 350,000 tier points between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 you’ll reach this elite status, which unlocks superior benefits and priority VIP treatment. You’ll receive all of the Ocean and Beach level benefits, plus:
—Two complimentary Daily Dining Passports per day
—Suite upgrades (based on availability)
—Complimentary Bask Spa day pass
—Entrance to the Annual Pearl Tournament
—A 1-hour slot machine hold
—Dedicated Pearl hotline
—Preferred Ovation Hall seating
In addition to dozens of gaming offers and events, Revel Card users receive exclusive opportunities that bring the resort experience to life, such as access to the SkyGarden for parties and events, private cocktail parties at O2, and VIP access to cabanas on The Mezz level.
Resort guests currently enrolled in the Revel Card program will be automatically entered into the new program. To sign up, or to inquire about your current Revel Card status, visit the Revel Card Desk from 9:00 a.m.–10:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 9:00 a.m.–2:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
Maureen Siman, executive director of public relations for Revel, told Strictly Slots: “We just launched the all-new Revel Card including the Ocean, Beach and Pearl tiers and our guests love it. We are giving them exactly what they’ve been asking for, recognition and rewards. Revel is a great place to play with an extraordinary card program that offers more than any other casino in Atlantic City. Just like Revel, there is simply nothing else like it in Atlantic City and we’re thrilled to be able to include all aspects of our resort into the card program. No matter how or when you come to Revel, you can earn Resort Dollars—whether you’re a slot player, blackjack or other table games player, or you love our restaurants and shops, or just can’t get enough of our spa!”
Revel is smoke-free and features more than 1,800 rooms with sweeping ocean views. A member of the American Express Gold Hotel Collection, the resort houses a 130,000-square-foot casino with more than 2,000 slot machines, nearly 100 table games, electronic tables and a Poker Room. The resort features a 32,000-square-foot spa and an outstanding collection of 14 restaurant concepts from award-wining chefs and restaurateurs. Live entertainment includes marquee acts and international artists, plus nightclub entertainment. Revel was recently named one of Gogobot Travelers’ Top 50 Hotels in the World in 2012; one of the Best Hotels in the Northeast by “Arrive” magazine; and one of the Top 10 Best New Hotels in the U.S. by Gayot.com.
Future plans for Revel’s slot club include launching an all-new website for Revel card holders which will make it very easy to check Resort Dollars and tier points, and to book promotions and check current offers. They also plan to construct a beautiful new players lounge in the near future, and will be offering an innovative new member’s sign-up promotion soon as well. Stay tuned!
