Wynn Las Vegas and Encore on the Las Vegas Strip are sister properties owned by Steve Wynn and are both connected physically and by slot club.
The two elegant hotels combined offer nearly 200,000 square feet of casino space, over 25 restaurants including buffets, award-winning shows, nightclubs, posh pools with fabulous spas, a race and sportsbook, poker room and much more.
Red Card is the universal slot club card used for both properties. It is a single tier club but higher perks and benefits are available through casino hosts. Coin-in requirements for slots is $1.50 to earn one point.
Video poker takes $6-$15, depending on the type and denomination machine, to earn one point. 100 points equals $1 and 1,000 points equals $10 in free slot play. There is no real cash back and players earn comps separately from their points but must be ascertained through a casino host.
Points do expire one year after they are earned even if there is continued account activity, so be sure to keep track and always use them before they are retired from your account. Free play expires 30 days after points are converted. Table game players earn comps only based on type of game, wagers and time played.
New members signing up for Red Card at either property get to spin a prize wheel after earning their first 300 points. Every spin is a guaranteed winner of some type of prize, from $10 in free play up to $10,000 and other prizes like show tickets and meals.
After earning your first 750 points you’ll receive free dinner for two to the newly remodeled buffet at Wynn Las Vegas. Earn 1,300 points and you can receive an additional two buffets or breakfast or lunch for two at Terrace Point Café. Red Card sponsors various other promotions and tournaments throughout the year.
