What is a Video Poker Players' Club?
Just as the name suggests, a video poker Players' Club is a club that rewards the loyal video poker players. Most online casinos offer some kind of compensation program for its loyal customers. These clubs are usually called VIP Clubs or Loyalty Programs. Through this service any player that signs up with the casino and makes a deposit will start collecting points that will later be translated in to specific gifts, cash or more gaming.
Online all it takes for the player is to be registered with a real money account and then each poker game will start adding points. Of course, it is of great importance to check that the specific poker game you like to play will actually give points. Many casinos online make a special selection of what games will reward the player with additional bonus and it is up to the player to get the information.
In the land based casino or place which carries video games the club is usually joined by signing in with your personal data. After registration has been carried out a card is issued. This card can then be inserted in the video poker, video keno or slot machine that you choose to play on and thus your bonus is registered to you. Just like the casinos online, the land based casinos offer a great variety of bonuses and prizes for the members of their player clubs. The good thing is that listings can be found online also for the land based establishments. This way you can find out what in your area is the most suitable for you.
The advantage with joining a video poker players' club is that you get a little bit more for each bet than the original sum invested. The membership is usually for free and for the player that spend a lot of time on video poker machines it can greatly pay off to join a players' club. The reward can be in the form of cash backs, special prizes such as trips to exciting far away destinations. Some of the bonus offers come with restrictions and it is important to be aware of this and learn them before counting on great cash back due to the membership in the players' club.
An exciting reward that can be scored through a video poker players' club is a spot in a big tournament like the World Series of Poker. For the skilled but anonymous player this can be the opening to a real poker career as has been the case with many of the professional players seen in the big events today.
Another advantage with the card system is that once it is inserted into the video game machine the casino can keep track of the individual player's actions. This way the games can be adjusted to fit him better and open up for a level of play that will allow for even more compensation through points. This makes joining a club a good idea both for the beginner and the professional poker player.
