These are suggestions to get noticed by your favorite casino for comps. So here are 5 Tips To Raise Your Tier Status. Most of us work hard at the casino and have grown accustomed to certain comps or perks from our play. This is a post with the low to the mid roller in mind. (But it works for all levels of gamblers). This is for you if your bankroll is between $100 to $1000.
It just so happens to accompany the results of our recent poll, “Which Casino Perk is Most Important To You?” Here are the results:
How You Raise Your Tier Status
Tip #1 – Savor Your Bankroll
Not Visiting Casinos during the pandemic should have helped build a bankroll. Many of us set aside discretionary money for our return to gambling. Your bankroll should have been more significant when you finally returned to the casino.
In late 2021, gamblers returned in force. Those “pandemic savings” could already be gone unless you were careful. So, suggestion #1 – Let that bankroll grow with fewer casino visits.
This suggestion can’t be overstated. You can only play the money set aside for that one purpose as normalcy returns. So be disciplined with your bankroll.

Following Coach Kitty’s advice, has increased room offers, including suites I was never offered. Also, my free slot play and food perks have doubled since October 2020. So #2 is Visit Less, But Play Bigger.
Tip #3 – Be Patient – It Takes Time To Raise Your Tier Status
It doesn’t happen overnight. But you have to stay the course. As much as you might want to play at the bar for a half-hour, have a drink and go home, this habit will stop the process. You’ll have to restart the process. It has the same effect as a week-long binge on a new diet. (believe me, I know!). So, Tip #3 is to Be Patient and Stay the Course.
If you really want that short visit to see your favorite bartenders, or meet your friends, here’s a little tip – Don’t Use Your Players Card! Be anonymous, and don’t break your tier status progress. (Or go to a secondary casino). Before every visit, you should consider the expected time to play and the bankroll needed.NETG
Tip #4 – Choose Your Gambling Days Wisely
Some days are best for your big play. These days are multiplier days when casinos offer a known amount, and your earned tier points will be multiplied. Beware of the “Up To 20X Points” promotions. You’ve been to “Up To 50% Off” sales, haven’t you? The day you would have an extensive play are often 2X points on those promotions. If you’re alright with that, go to it. But if you have to swipe your rewards card to find how much the multiplier is, you have already signed in for a “gambling day.” Multiplier days can be found in many of New England’s Casinos monthly.
More about that in Tip #5.
Tip #5 – Beware of Non-Gambling Days and Promotions
Non-gambling days are killers of a player’s ADT or your Average Daily Theoretical. Like throwing a $20 bill in and leaving, those short play days are tough on your casino player data. But, even worse are giveaway days. If you need that free-hand vacuum, go ahead a get it. It usually involves the use of your rewards card. After your card is used and you get your “free” gift, you may leave or play a little and then leave. Do this enough, and you will never see your casino offers grow. Instead, they will probably decrease, and you’ll wonder why. Now you know.
Have you ever gone to the casino to swipe your card for that Vegas Vacation promotion or that snowmobile? Then you walk out? That, my friends, is a “Non-Gambling Day” and hurts your ADT. So our final tip – Tip #5 – Beware of Non-Gambling Days and Promotions
Competent players interested in raising their casino tier status will follow these five tips. But, remember, never gamble only to raise tier levels. Recreation, good strategy decisions, and fun should always be the main focus. But a little planning and choosing can also help get that slot play and comped room while having fun and recreation.
Good Luck Out There. Be Safe, be healthy.
