What is the difference between Points, Rewards and Tier Points?

Rewards can be redeemed to pay for dining, hotel stays, gift shop purchases, gas, bowling, golf and more.

You can view your Points, Rewards or Tier Point balance at any Fast Rewards kiosk or your online account.

How do I check my Points and Rewards balance?            
You can view your Points and Rewards balance at any Fast Rewards kiosk by using your Star Rewards card and PIN. You can also view your available balances in your online account.

How can I use my Points?           
Points can be converted into cash back or game credit. If you have at least 500 Points in your account, you can convert your Points into cash at any Fast Rewards kiosk using your Star Rewards card and PIN. The kiosk will print a voucher that can be redeemed at the cage for cash. To convert your Points into game credit on your favorite game, simply insert your card into the game, select "Menu", enter your PIN and select "Points".

How can I use my Rewards?
You can redeem your Rewards at Choices Food Court, Perks, Juniper Steakhouse, the Gift Shop, Pro Shop or hotel.

How do I get Free Play, Table Play or Sportsbook offers?
Offers are based on your play while using your Star Rewards card. Play is evaluated each month and is available to qualified guests.

How can I use my Free Play?

Why does my card lock? Do I earn points when my card is locked?
Sometimes when playing at a slot machine, if a card is left behind or there is a long period of inactivity a card will automatically lock out any non-gaming activity as a safety measure, but your points and rewards will continue to be earned as long your card is in play. To unlock your card visit the Player's Club.
