New England Casinos Offer Multiplier Days

I Love Multiplier Days!

One of the great equalizers to earning comps and decreasing payout percentages is gambling big on multiplier days. In New England, where the competition is about to get fierce and the eventual nine casinos are going to be battling for patrons money, multiplier days are one of the best ways to get people through the doors.  It’s also one of the type of promotions that gamblers should take advantage of.

Bonus point multipliers have long been used as a marketing tool in casinos. The practice dates back to the earliest days of player tracking systems. Multiplier days can increase your status/tier points and/or club points for dining, etc.

Mohegan Sun has always offered multiplier days. Now, Foxwoods & MGM Springfield are offering them as well. Oxford Casino in Maine has also offered these type of promotions for quite a while. Here are the list of multiplier days in December at New England’s casinos.

Oxford Hotel & Casino

OXFORD CASINO & HOTEL

In the middle of Maine (actually considered southern Maine), in the wilderness where the town of Oxford sits, you can find Maine’s newest casino, owned by  Churchill Downs Inc. It’s quite rural, with the biggest point of interest besides the casino being Poland Springs Water production center.

Oxford offers many promotions, and multiplier days are included. This month, Oxford’s typical points days includes:

The bad news about these multipliers is that they exclude Tier Points, Keno & Video Poker. Only slots and slot points are included.  The video poker is so ugly, you would think they would include VP as a compromise….just saying……

Mohegan Sun Hotel

Mohegan Sun Casino Resort

STATUS MAYHEM – Thursday, December 13th. Give your Momentum status a huge boost with Status Point multipliers from 6:00am – MidnightThe multiplier will randomly change throughout the day – earning you anywhere from 2X – 5X Status Points. Each multiplier is guaranteed to occur at least twice. What’s cool about this promo is that at least 2X is guaranteed throughout the day on your tier status points. Every hour, or sometimes on the half hour, the new multiplier is announced and posted on screens all over the three casino areas. (Not valid on poker play.)

DOUBLE MOMENTUM & STATUS POINTSFriday, December 21st. (Not valid on poker play.)

TRIPLE STATUS POINTSSunday, December 30th. (Not valid on poker play.)

Foxwoods Grand Pequot Hotel

Foxwoods Casino Resort

TRIPLE TIER POINTS – Foxwoods seldom offers multipliers, but probably due to the rise in competition, we now see them. Available last month, and now in December on Friday, December 14th (BEGINNING AT 6AM), you can earn TRIPLE TIER CREDITS on slots, table games, keno, bingo and race book. (Not valid on poker play.)

New Entrance renderings for MGM Springfield

MGM Springfield

MGM SPRINGFIELD Casino Resort

The newest New England casino, MGM Springfield, has added multiplier days as well. MLife Rewards Tier Credit Multipliers are available on Wednesdays in December.  The amount of the multiplier depends on your tier level:

  • Saphhire – 2X Bonus Tier points
  • Pearl – 3X Bonus Tier points
  • Gold -4X Bonus Tier points
  • Platinum & Noir -5X Bonus Tier points

You can earn Bonus Tier Credits on slot machines, table games and non-gaming spend. It starts at 12:00AM and goes until 11:59PM.

Take advantage of these multiplier days – they can make a big difference for your tier status, especially for those of us who low to mid-rollers.
