When you win a jackpot on a slot machine, the casino will generally remove your card to insert their own, confirming who is processing the jackpot and so on. This may relate to today’s question:

Can you lose points on your players card if you win a jackpot?


Rest assured that player points are not linked to the jackpot, and you’re not penalized there for getting one.

Generally, whether it’s tier credits or comp dollars, what you earn is generally based on:

  • The game you’re playing
  • The amount you’re wagering
  • How many wagers you make
  • The house edge (the percentage the casino will make) on that particular game

Some casinos will give you points based on how many dollars you wager; others will do it based on the amount of money they expect to win off you based on your game selection. In neither case do other factors such as jackpots come into play.

We have heard of examples of casino hosts being less generous with comps they give at the end of a trip if a player is heavily up, but that is also not connected to the amount of points earned just for playing.

On the flip side, we’ve seen a number of examples of casino drawings and bonuses that are awarded when someone gets a jackpot. So it can also go the other way.

But you don’t need to worry about points being sacrificed if you get a jackpot – those are earned on their own schedule, jackpot or not.

Where you might lose out on points is if the casino unlocks the machine for you, and you forget to put your card back in. So definitely don’t forget to restore your card after a jackpot, as that’s an easy thing to forget and can be a way that you lose out on what you’re entitled to while playing on a machine.
