MGM Resorts International’s M life is a big club, in fact one of the largest nationwide!
M life rewards program gives players the power to earn benefits for virtually every dollar spent. That means you’re rewarded for hotel, dining, entertainment, and spa experiences, along with your slot and table play. The personalized, tailored fit of M life means getting rewards that are more specific to you.
Benefits are determined by five Tier Levels – Sapphire, Pearl, Gold, Platinum and NOIR.
Slot players earn tier credits based on play (for every slot point earned, receive two tier credits). Table players earn tier credits based on length of time played, average bet, and type of game. At higher tiers, points and benefits accumulate at a faster rate.
Pearl, Gold, Platinum, and NOIR members maintain points and Express Comps as long as they have activity within the prior 12 months. Sapphire members maintain their points and Express Comps if they have activity within the prior six months.
POINTPlay is an exclusive feature of M life that gives you the power to redeem your points for freeplay right at your favorite machine. You can also link your account with another member from your household and earn POINTPlay based on combined play.
Play your favorite slots or table games and enjoy all that M life has to offer even more quickly with Express Comps, which are the fastest and most convenient way to comp yourself at hotels, restaurants, or entertainment venues. Express Comps can also be redeemed for select products, services, and M life Moments.
Receive two cents in Express Comps for every point you earn on slot and video poker machines. At Las Vegas resorts, Express Comps can be earned for slot play. Members visiting Beau Rivage, Gold Strike Tunica (Miss.) and MGM Grand Detroit will earn Express Comps for both slot and table games play.
In general, $3 coin-in (slots) or $10 coin-in (video poker) equals onepoint; 100 points equals $1 in free play and comps. However, higher tiers receive bonus points for their play. Pearl is a 10% bonus; Gold, 20%; Platinum, 30%; NOIR, 40%.
The bonus points do not appear while you are playing, but are calculated and added on when removing your card from the machine. Earning comps at the Mississippi and Detroit casinos is done at the rate of 100 points equals $2.
A unique feature of M life are exclusive experiences known as “M life Moments,” which give you access to just about any part of your favorite resort. This could include anything from a private dinner with a celebrity chef, a dive with the sharks at Mandalay Bay’s Shark Reef, the chance to be DJ for a night at one of the nightclubs to private poker lessons with a legendary pro and more. As you move up Tier Levels, you’ll unlock additional M life Moments.
The Las Vegas group of hotels under the M life umbrella are: ARIA, Bellagio, Vdara, MGM Grand, The Signature at MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, THEhotel at Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York-New York, Luxor and Excalibur. The aforementioned Beau Rivage (Biloxi), Gold Strike (Tunica) and MGM Grand Detroit also qualify.
