HANOVER, Md., March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Maryland Live! Casino is taking the Live! Rewards® Players Club to a whole new level with the launch of its new Card Tier Rewards Program, featuring a lineup of new and exclusive benefits for Classic, Gold, Platinum, Black and Chairman's Club tier members.
In addition to standard benefits offered to all Card Tiers, such as Same Day Free Slot Play and Match Table Play, discount offers at various partner hotels, free check cashing, and other complimentaries, strategic marketing partnerships have been established with luxury brands such as the Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island, Wynn Las Vegas, and Norwegian Cruise Lines to enhance benefits for top tier members.
Now, all Gold, Platinum, Black and Chairman's Club cardholders can take advantage of exclusive amenities, discounts and complimentary packages available from these new partnerships, including travel, luxurious accommodations, and the opportunity to participate in private special events and exclusive promotions.
CHAIRMAN'S CLUB CELEBRATION
To celebrate the launch of the new Live! Rewards program, Maryland Live! hosted a spectacular special event in Washington, DC, to welcome the first group of customers to become members of the Chairman's Club, the most elite of the new Tiers. Guests were treated to a sumptuous dinner, spectacular entertainment, dancing, and a special performance by the legendary Kool & the Gang, while Maryland Live! executives unveiled the premier benefits offered to this exclusive group.
The Chairman's Exclusive Package features an unprecedented array of rewards, such as an annual Chairman's Cruise on Norwegian Cruise Lines to exotic locales; complimentary travel packages to Atlantis, Paradise Island, and Wynn Las Vegas; complimentary birthday celebrations at The Prime Rib, VIP access to all Rams Head Center Stage headline shows, tickets to major sporting events, complimentary rounds of golf, luxury gift items, complimentary car wash and detailing, and a 100% increased earning rate on Self-Comps. In addition, each member was awarded $5,000 in Free Slot Play or Promo Chips as part of THE STREAK®, a one-of-a-kind, annual anniversary award that increases each year the Card Tier status is maintained.
One of the most anticipated benefits of the new Live! Rewards program are the Self-Comp accounts. Self-Comps are a new award that players earn and use to comp themselves at most Maryland Live! restaurant outlets, and the Shop Live! retail store. Self-Comp awards are dollar based; for example, $1 in earned Self-Comp is equivalent to $1 in retail or dining purchase. Members earn Self-Comps based on game played, average bet, and length of play. Earning rate will vary for every customer based on their play; however, as an added benefit, Gold, Platinum, Black and Chairman's Club cardholders earn Self-Comps at an increased rate – 25% for Gold; 50% for Platinum; 75% for Black; and 100% for Chairman's Club.
The most unique and celebrated feature of the new Live! Rewards program is THE STREAK®, a one-of-a-kind, annual anniversary award that increases each year the Card Tier status is maintained. Gold, Platinum, Black and Chairman's Club cardholders will be rewarded for their status in Free Slot Play or Promotional Chips, which are redeemable through the rest of the year. To kick off the new program, all Gold Card members received $100; Platinum Card members received $500; Black Card members received $1,000; and Chairman's Club Card members received $5,000.
"We are very excited to announce the details of the new Live! Rewards Card program, which offers our customers an array of generous new benefits to reward them for their loyalty," said Mario Maesano, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Maryland Live! Casino. "Our guests now have the opportunity to visit luxurious resorts and travel to exotic locations around the world through our new marketing partnerships; receive an annual anniversary award for achieving and maintaining their Tier status with THE STREAK; download their own Self-Comps; and take advantage of a variety of other perks and amenities."
