Players Club – MLife – MGM Resorts

MLife is the players club associated with most MGM Resorts properties.  The notable exceptions to the MGM casinos that use MLife are Circus Circus and neighboring Slots A Fun.  These two properties have their own players club that is not connected to MLife and the other Las Vegas MGM casinos.

How to Receive the MLife Card

Each MGM Resorts casino that uses MLife has a players center where new customers may receive a card.  Slot attendants can also issue cards for players.  The Mlife website offers a way for new players to create an account.

How to Use MLife Card

Slot and video poker players must slide the MLife card into the slot on their favorite machine.  The machine will show the player’s name when it is accepted.  Table game and poker players should give the MLife card to the dealer.  Purchases made at the hotel and at shops within MGM properties receive MLife points.  Present the card to the cashier or hotel employee handling the transaction.

Awards Earned by Game

Slot players earn 0.2% in free play and comps when playing at MLife properties.  Video poker players earn 0.1% in free play and comps.  Table game players are rated based on the average bet, time at the table and house edge of the game.  Poker players receive $1-$2 per hour in cash game action, depending on the property.  Aria raises this to $3 per hour between 5am and 10am daily.

Money spent at MGM properties receives tier credit at a rate of 25 points for every dollar spent.  These customers receive 1% return on points that may be used as comps.

Other MLife Perks

Active players will receive mailers.  These include free slot play or hotel rooms.  Players that give a high level of action qualify for a host.

How to Redeem MLife Points and Comps

Players may redeem free play on any slot or video poker machine.  The player should hit the enter or OK button and enter their PIN.  The next step is to redeem points from the menu.  The machine will then ask the amount the player wishes to convert into cash.  The minimum amount of points that may be converted is $10.

Express Comps are redeemed at retailers within MGM properties.  This includes restaurants, stores and hotels.  Express Comps may only be used at businesses owned by MGM.  Outside vendors do not accept the points.
