Trop Advantage is the five tier level universal club of Tropicana Entertainment, Inc. properties, which include eight casino hotels: Tropicana Casino and Resort Atlantic City, Belle of Baton Rouge, Mont Bleu Resort Casino & Spa (Lake Tahoe), Tropicana Aruba Resort & Casino, Tropicana Laughlin, Trop Casino Greenville, Tropicana Evansville and Lumière Place Casino & Hotels St. Louis. (Note: Tropicana Las Vegas is not part of this group. It is operated by Penn National Gaming.)
The Trop Advantage players club is designed to allow players maximum flexibility in choosing their own rewards. Trop Advantage offers five reward tier levels and the ability to earn and spend comp dollars, receive invitations to special events and giveaways, take advantage of generous free slot play programs, experience trips to Tropicana Entertainment’s resort properties, Las Vegas and cruises, and more. Trop Advantage not only rewards players for gaming activities but also awards points for booking hotel room reservations, as well as dining and shopping throughout the properties.
Upon signing up for Trop Advantage you will immediately enjoy Green tier benefits (based on play) at all Tropicana Entertainment properties that include earning comp dollars and tier points, earning entries for sweepstakes and contests, invitations to gift giveaways and special mailed offers.
The earning levels for each tier are: Green, 0-3,999 points; Copper, 4,000; Gold, 20,000; Platinum, 100,000; and Black, 450,000 and over.
Benefits increase dramatically at the Gold level and above, which offer players an annual staycation at any Trop-owned property, a complimentary birthday dinner, an annual stay at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and an annual cruise on Carnival Cruise Lines.
One of the most exciting new benefits of Trop Advantage is the eligibility to receive complimentary and discounted Carnival cruises throughout the year aboard Carnival’s 24 ships, based on their level of play.
As mentioned, Gold level and above receive a complimentary cruise for two. Copper level can receive up to 30% off cruise rates. Carnival destinations include exotic ports throughout the Caribbean, Bahamas, Mexico, and other destinations.
Club benefits are valid from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, yearly and based on tracked play.
While earning rates may possibly vary at different properties, from what we have learned, $1 coin-in on slots or $2 coin-in on video poker at Tropicana Laughlin will earn one point and 500 points will equal $1 in cash back (0.20% return on slots; 0.10% return on video poker.)
At Tropicana Laughlin, you can “Win a Vacation of a Lifetime.” Tropicana Laughlin’s vacation promotion provides a chance to win a trip to Germany, Ireland, Costa Rica, Alaska, Maui, Bora Bora or another destination. Three winners will be drawn on Saturday, Jan. 7, and each winner will be awarded a vacation trip plus $1,000 cash.
Play slots now through Jan. 7 to enter and receive one electronic drawing ticket for every 50 base points earned. One winner will be drawn each hour at 8, 9 and 10 p.m. on Jan. 17. Must be present to win. Visit the Trop Advantage Club booth for details.
