Online Real Item Comps?

6 replies • Last post

With the talk in the land casinos forum about comps, I am wondering if anyone out there plays at a casino that offers real item comps.

Imagine where you get the points for an amount wagered wherein you could trade that in for a free Casino based shirt, gift certificate, or bigger item like a TV. Do any casinos do that?

Maybe they need to follow the CL-Shop model.

some poker sites like full tilt and poker stars did this, but we all know what happened to those sites.

Yes it does happen. English Harbour used to have a shop styled system that you could spend your comps on before they closed down. Other casinos give gifts and rewards to their "high value" players (translation: the ones that lose a lot).

Most casinos don't though as they would rather players use their comps in the casino where the casino often wins them all back.

I know from our own experience with our shop here that its a lot easier offering vouchers and electronic rewards as you don't have to worry about shipping things all around the world. That may be a factor in deterring casinos from offering physical rewards too.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.

Oh? I never took a look at these before. When I get on my Windows PC later I will have to take a look.
