CrownBet Rewards loyalty program
As competition intensifies within the Australian bookmaking industry, betting agencies are going to greater lengths to attract new members, and satisfy existing ones. For example, there are now more valuable free bet bonuses available to new account holders, and more bonus bets available to existing members, than there ever used to be. Bookmakers are increasing the value offering to members. Now, innovative agency CrownBet, is taking their service offering to a whole new level with CrownBet Rewards, a unique loyalty program.
A sports entertainment loyalty program
The CrownBet Rewards program allows members to benefit from a range of products, services, promotions and discounts far and beyond what you would normally expect from a corporate bookmaker. The program is run along similar lines to the Qantas Frequent Flyer Program, where every flight earns reward points that can in turn be redeemed on a variety of goods and services. In the case of the CrownBet Rewards program, every dollar wagered, and every dollar spent at Crown establishments, will earn the member valuable reward points.
A ‘no strings attached’ $25 bonus
When a new member opens a Rewards account, CrownBet will fill their account with $25 worth of points. The points are immediately redeemable, meaning that is a bonus with no strings attached.
Redeeming rewards points
The major benefit of the scheme, is not the ease at which points can be earned, rather it’s the variety of means through which points can be redeemed. Having the backing of Crown Resorts Ltd, means that CrownBet is able to draw on all of the group’s entertainment assets and offer members an unsurpassed level of rewards. A summary of what is available is below:
- Discounts at all Crown Melbourne operations including restaurants and hotels
- Entertainment vouchers for cinemas and online streaming of music and TV
- Travel packages to international sport events including the Royal Ascot races
- Premium sports merchandise including: AFL, NRL, cricket and more..
- Donations to charitable organisations
- Gift cards to be used at a variety of establishments other than Crown
- Tickets to AFL and NRL games
- Membership packages to leading sports and racing tipping services
- Bonus bets with CrownBet
Sports travel packages
One of the major draws of the program, is the availability of sports travel experiences, including golf tours. Recently, CrownBet put together a travel package to Wimbledon 2017. Past offers have included: the Kentucky Derby, Monaco Grand Prix, Royal Ascot races and the US Open tennis.
The travel packages are not just limited to sport events. Crown Rewards points can be used for weekend getaways and longer holidays.
Or cash in for a free bet…
Of course if you are a keen punter, you may choose to cash in some of your points and receive a bonus bet. Every 5,000 points is equal to a $50 bonus bet.
Joining CrownBet Rewards
Entry to CrownBet Rewards is free. You don’t even need to be a member of CrownBet to join the program. If you are already a CrownBet member though, you can join the program by logging in and linking your account to a CrownBet Signature Club account.
If you are not a CrownBet member, you can register an account here. Once you have joined, you can then join and receive the CrownBet Signature Card, which marks your registration for the rewards program.
The Signature Card allows you to earn points by simply presenting it at any of the Crown Resorts establishments; whilst every dollar wagered through your CrownBet account will also go towards earning points. However, this is not the only way to accumulate points; the betting operator will from time to time run promotions whereby members can earn a wad of 5,000 points at once.
Earning points via wagering
Every bet counts towards points. A point is earned for every $2 wagered on a horse race, or $1 for a fixed racing win bet. Sports bets are slightly different, every $5 bet will earn 1 point, whilst every $1 of a multi bet will earn 1 point.
Whether you intend to have the odd flutter with CrownBet or not, it’s worth your while to join their Rewards Program. If you do bet with CrownBet, make sure you link your account to the scheme. If you bet with any other bookmaker, it’s worth considering the benefits that this loyalty program may bring. You can find out more about CrownBet here.
