How to Use a Golden Rewards Card

Golden Gaming - Golden Rewards

Every machine in a Golden Gaming tavern has a slot where the player’s card goes.  The machine will welcome you by name once it is accepted.  Players have the ability to change the card of the day, convert points, and claim free play directly on the card reader’s keypad.

Awards Earned by Game

Players earn 0.1% back in free play and 0.2% in food comps while playing any game at a Golden Gaming tavern.

Other Golden Rewards Perks

Players that deposit $20 in a machine receive free drinks as long as $2 per minute is wagered.  Players that deposit $200 and wager about $1,000 in coin-in receive a free meal.  The exact amount required is left to the discretion of the bar manager. Active players receive mailers that include free meals, free play, and point multipliers.

How to Redeem Free Slot Play

Free slot play offered through mailers must be redeemed through the Golden Gaming app or through a kiosk at a location.  The next step is to go to transfer it to a machine.  This requires a PIN after hitting the “Redeem” button on the Golden Rewards keypad.  Players converting points into free play do not need to use the app or visit the kiosk.  The redemption may be made directly on a machine.

Golden Rewards Return Rate

Golden Gaming players earn 0.1% in free play and 0.2% in free food when using the Golden Rewards card.  This is the same rate for all video poker, slot, keno, and video table games.  Players that use the Golden Rewards card for their William Hill account do not receive points.  William Hill has a separate cashback program.

Golden Rewards Benefits by Tier

Golden Rewards players win free play when another player in the tavern hits a jackpot.  There is a separate bonus for a royal flush, four of a kind of the day, and a keno jackpot.
