What can I redeem my points for?

How do I redeem points?

You can redeem points for free play directly at any slot machine or eTable using your Encore Rewards card and PIN. 1,000 points (or $5 free play) is the minimum that can be redeemed at slots and eTables.

To redeem points for table free play take your Encore Rewards card to Guest Services to get a free play voucher that you can give to the dealer at your table. 2,000 points (or $10 free play) is the minimum that can be redeemed at table games.

Unfortunately points cannot be redeemed on PlayNow.

What is the value of my points?

200 points = $1. That means for every 1,000 points you have a free play value of $5.

What happens to points that I redeem, but don't use?

Points that are redeemed, but not used at the slot machine, will be returned to your balance. Points redeemed for table free play vouchers must be used within the same day it was issued.

When do my points expire?

Unused points in your account expire after 365 days unless stated otherwise. 

To see expired points, sign in to your Encore Rewards account and click the Statements tab. Under Statement Period, select the period you are looking for and under Points Category, select Expired Points. Your expired points will then display on the page.

Due to COVID-19, points earned between March 17, 2019 and July 4, 2021 will be redeemable until July 5, 2022.

My points balance seems incorrect. What should I do?

First, sign in to your Encore Rewards account to view your statements and check all your activity and balance. Points earned in casinos and Chances locations are updated every 15 minutes. PlayNow and food & beverage points may take up to 48 hours to post to your account. If there are inconsistencies, please contact BCLC Customer Support immediately. 

I forgot my Encore Rewards card when dining. Can I still earn point on my bill?

Yes, Guest Services can manually award your points. To earn points on a closed restaurant bill, you must retain your receipt and visit Guest Services at the casino or Chances location you dined at within 10 days of purchase.

No, points or free play cannot be redeemed for cash or slot tickets. Points can be redeemed directly at the slot machine or eTable for free play or you can redeem points for table free play at Guest Services. Credits that are won are the only credits that can be cashed in.

In my online account I see Anywhere Points and Casino Specific Points, what’s the difference?

Anywhere Points are the points you earn, and they can be redeemed for free play at any casino or Chances location in B.C. BCLC may also award you points that can be used at any location. See ‘Free Play, Promos and Offers’ for more information.

Casino Specific Points are points that can only be redeemed at certain locations. Under the Casino Specific Points section you’ll see groups of casinos and how many points you have available to redeem at each. These points are awarded by specific casino locations. See ‘Free Play, Promos and Offers’ for more information.


How is my membership level determined?

Membership status levels are determined by the amount of points you have collected over a one year period starting September 1st of each year. Based on your accumulated activity, your membership level can increase daily, but will only decrease on September 1st if you have not maintained the same level of status points.

Due to COVID-19 casino closures, your tier status will be extended again through September 1, 2022. Your tier status points will still reset to zero (0) during the month of September.

How many tier status points are required for each Encore Rewards membership level?

  • Diamond: points required = 0-9,999
  • Double Diamond: points required = 10,000 - 49,999
  • Triple Diamond: points required = 50,000 - 149,999
  • Elite: points required = 150,000+

How do I earn tier status points?

Tier status points are earned the same way as redeemable points. For example, when you earn 1 point for a $1 bet on slots, you also earn 1 tier status point.

Can bonus points be calculated towards my membership level status?

No. Bonus points, promotional points, multiplier and direct mail offers do not affect your membership level. Only money wagered at the machine or table, or spent on dining, will contribute to your membership level.

What's the difference between Encore Rewards points, tier status points and bonus points?

Encore Rewards points are the redeemable points that you have earned while playing with your Encore Rewards card, or have been awarded to your account through a free play offer.

Tier status points are your cumulative total of earned points over the anniversary period (that resets every September). These points count towards your membership level.

Bonus points are additional points earned through the accelerator bonus benefit. These points are redeemable for free play.

How do the accelerator benefits work?

Accelerator benefits are unlocked as you move up membership levels. They are awarded as a percentage of points, dependant on your membership status level (i.e. Double Diamond players earn 5% accelerator points on top of every point earned).

There are two types of accelerators – bonus point accelerator and status point accelerator. A bonus point accelerator applies to points you earn during play with your Encore Rewards card. A status point accelerator applies to your tier status points that determine your membership level.

How do I move up a membership level?

Depending on your amount of play, you may be upgraded to the next membership level the day after you become eligible. All membership levels offer great benefits. Based on level of activity, your membership level can increase daily, but can only decrease once a year on September 1st.

Will I keep my membership level forever?

No, membership levels are determined based on your amount of play in a one year period. It is refreshed every September.

Due to COVID-19 casino closures, your tier status will be extended again through September 1, 2022. Your tier status points will still reset to zero (0) during the month of September.

Why was I moved down a membership level?

If your level of play is reduced in the anniversary year following your upgrade, you will be moved to the appropriate membership level. There are great membership benefits regardless of your level.

To get to Double Diamond Member status at 10,000 points, does that mean I have to spend $10,000 on slots out of my pocket?

No, one (1) point for every $1 of slot play wagered includes the initial spend plus any slot play wins accumulated and then played on a slot machine.

For example, if you put in $5 and spin 5 times at $1 each, you have earned 5 points. If you win $10 during those spins and continue to play, you now have played an additional 10 spins at $1 each. This will earn you 10 more points. In this example, you put in $5 but earned 15 points.
