The five-tiered Golden Rewards club offers players free slot play, gaming and point multipliers. Players can also earn comp dollars that can be used for food and beverages. Monthly gaming offers are available to redeem on a kiosk or from their mobile app.
The five tiers (in order of lowest to highest) are Bronze, Silver, Gold, Royal and Royal Elite. Every $1 coin-in equals one point. Every 2,000 points means $1 free play. The point requirements for tiers are: Bronze, 0 to 14,999; Silver, 15,000 to 49,999; Gold, 50,000 to 99,999; Royal, 100,000 to 274,999; and Royal Elite, 275,000 and above. Tiers reset every quarter. At the top two tier levels members receive an annual gift, monthly gifts and invitations for special events.
One of the special features of Golden Rewards is the “Golden Jackpot.” Players can select their own personal 4 of a kind poker hand that sets off the jackpot, also triggered by hitting a Royal Flush and/or $1,000 or higher jackpot on keno, slots, or blackjack. A player must be betting minimum $.99 to qualify.
All carded players betting the minimum receive a bonus when ignited. The breakdown of awards are based on current tier level. The personal 4 of a kind, $1,000 or higher jackpot on keno, slots or blackjack pays: Bronze, $5; Silver, $10; Gold, $20; Royal, $25; and Royal Elite, $50. A Royal Flush pays: Bronze $10; Silver, $20; Gold, $25; Royal, $50 and; Royal Elite, $100. Additional promotions can be found by visiting the website: www.pteglv.com
PTEG recently launched a mobile app that complements its award-winning tavern experience with on-the-go rewards. The app, “PT’s Entertainment Group Mobile App,” is now available on both the Apple App and Google Play Store.
Core features of the app include an offer center where the company’s Golden Rewards and Beer & Bites (every $2 spent equals one point; 100 points equals $5) members can access and activate customized promotional offers.
In addition to the app, all 46 establishments now have an in-tavern offer redemption center/kiosk. At the kiosk, guests can activate Golden Rewards and Beer & Bites offers, view their point and comp balance, membership tier status and previously redeemed offers.
