Virtually every casino you visit (except perhaps the “casino” at Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas) offers you the ability to sign up for a players card. And that players card program generally offers you tiers that you can earn to level up and be rewarded.

To level up, you need to earn tier credits, which is today’s topic. We see confusion sometimes from players who don’t understand how tier credits differ from player points and other balances they may have, or what they signify.

In essence, tier credits are an accounting of how much you’ve played at a given casino. Tier credits are either earned based on the amount of wagers you’ve made over time, or the expected loss against the wagers you’ve made over time.

In either option, as you play more, you will receive tier credits for your play. As you accumulate tier credits, which have no cash value and are solely for record keeping purposes, you may reach new tiers. You’re allowed to keep that tier for the remainder of the tier cycle, as well as the entirety of the next tier cycle. That next tier cycle, as you play, you have the opportunity to maintain that tier for another cycle by earning enough tier credits again.

Casinos have varying lengths for tier cycles. One year is pretty common, especially for national programs, but some casinos will do six month or even three month cycles. So it helps to know how long you have to tier up, and when your score resets.

Casinos will often offer tier credit multiplier days, giving you a chance to earn tier credits faster than normal. These are generally announced in advance and shared on casino websites and flyers. Some multiplier days will only be eligible for certain card levels, while others will be eligible to anyone who shows up.

Ultimately, tier credits make it easier to understand how you’re doing and what you’ve earned within a particular casino program. They also help you calculate how much play might lead you to a higher tier.
