Atlantic City casinos have a couple of the biggest loyalty programs in the United States. The M life Rewards Program for Borgata Casino, for instance, allows players to redeem rewards at nearly a dozen properties on the Las Vegas Strip, the Borgata Hotel and Casino in New Jersey, and a few more casino properties across the United States.
Caesars Atlantic City, Bally’s, and Harrah’s Resort offer the Caesars Rewards loyalty scheme. That program will be available in at least 60 casino properties across 16 states once Caesars and Eldorado Resorts finalize their merger in early 2020.
Let’s take a look at a few more casino reward card programs for Atlantic City.
Ocean Casino’s Wow Rewards Club
The Wow Rewards Club won the Best Comps award from Casino Player magazine two straight years and Ocean Casino still made it better. The revamped program allows players to get special perks and privileges for Ocean’s national brand partners. The program has five tiers and the more you play, the more Wow points you will earn and the higher the tier you can reach.

Benefits of the program include flexible comps, same-day free play, and free parking at the Ocean Casino and Resort. Upper-tier members can unlock a number of extra perks, including access to the VIP Lounge and Chairman’s Lounge, a $500 dinner at the casino every year, and the choice of an annual luxury gift such as a one-year lease on a Mercedes-Benz.
Ocean Wow Rewards Club members earn tier points, comp dollars, or flex comps, and the amount given depends on how much is played at the slots and table games. Comps can be exchanged at a 1:1 rate on shopping, dining, and hotel stays, and at a 2:1 rate for slots play at the casino.
Resorts Star Card
The Resorts Star Card allows members to use comp dollars earned at the Resorts Hotel Casino’s partner properties, which makes it one of the more generous loyalty programs in AC. It has five levels, offering greater benefits the more you play and the higher up the ladder you go.
Basic benefits for the Resorts Star Card include casino discounts and complimentary hotel rooms, dining, and show tickets. They increase from there to things such as complimentary rooms at Resorts’ sister properties out of New Jersey and free visits to the spa and salon. Recently, the program was given an update so that all dining, restaurants, and shops have a 1:1 ratio for redeemable comp points.
Resorts awards comp dollars, cash-back offers, and tier points to the members of the program. The amount earned depends on the level of the Star Card, the certain game being played, the average wager, the time the game is played, and the hold percentage of the game.
Trop Advantage Players Club
Tropicana’s Trop Advantage Players Club has been around for a while, but the program may not be around much longer. Eldorado Resorts now owns Tropicana Atlantic City, meaning the property will most likely switch to the Caesars Rewards program after the Caesars-Eldorado merger is completed next year.
The Trop Advantage program has been voted the Best Players Club by Casino Player magazine four years in a row. Players get more rewards and offers compared to most other casino loyalty programs. This is a five-tier program where the higher the tier, the more benefits and rewards are available. Members can claim 1:1 comp dollars for dining and shopping at the Tropicana, while high-tier players can indulge in additional perks such as discounted hotel stays at Eldorado properties. Players can also earn Trop Dollars, which are worth more than standard comp dollars.
The Black Card is the top tier of the Trop Advantage program. Players at this level receive personal hosting services, access to the exclusive Top of the Trop club, and two tickets every month to the IMAX Theater.
