How to gain VIP membership at Crown Casinos

Something that sounds this good naturally has its price, so it’s not surprising that there’s certain needs to be met before you can gain access to this mysterious, prestigious gaming space. The obvious fact is that VIP membership is only for those who are willing to throw down some serious dollars.

This is a reward-points program where you earn money for every dollar spent within the Crown Complex including on gaming, hotel stays, shopping or dining (think of it as FlyBuys but for gamblers).

The Signature Club works on a tier points system; for every 450 tier points you earn within one week you’ll receive one membership credit, and the more credits you receive the more benefits become available. Memberships start off at Bronze level and progress through Silver, Gold, Platinum and the mother of all, Black. To move up between membership tiers you really need to be an active Crown punter, as credits expire within 6 months if you don’t continually build your points.

If you have also a betting account with online bookmaker, the Crown Rewards program will offer up additional benefits, as every wager you place on the racing and sports markets will net you points. Just make sure to link your Crown Signature Club Card to your CrownBet account to ensure you are properly rewarded with points. Every 100 points equals $1, so if you end up with a ton of points and aren’t interested in redeeming them for prizes, you can net a decent return.
