The slot machines and blackjack tables and roulette wheels were there, of course, but Wynn knew how to downplay them. The Wynn casino is an 111,000 square foot gaming area where you can find the standard assortment of casino games, including over 165 tables for craps, roulette, blackjack, poker and baccarat. The Wynn casino also has one of the most frequented poker rooms in Vegas where most seasoned pros go to enjoy a superior experience. Blackjack at the Wynn. One thing that is pretty standard about the casino at the Wynn Las Vegas is the games available for play. Though there are a lot of table games, from Blackjack (including genius poolside tables for guests) to Caribbean Stud to Let It Ride, you won't find a lot of them offering the standard $5 limit bets, a shame if you are just stopping by to play a few hands.

Wynn Las Vegas — “The Wynn” — is a luxury Resort and Casino located on the north end of the Las Vegas strip. Built at a cost of $2.7 billion, the resort is named after Steve Wynn. Steve Wynn is known for his very successful gamble on the creation of the Mirage back in 1989—a truly opulent resort at the time and the resort which transformed Las Vegas into the colony of megaresorts that it is today. Wynn also was responsible for building Treasure Island (1993) and the Bellagio (1998). After these accomplishments, Wynn sold these properties in 2000 to the MGM group and bought the Desert Inn Hotel. With purchases of the adjacent golf course and private residences, he was able to build the 215 acre “Wynn” which opened on April 28, 2005 - Wynn’s wife’s birthday, the 55th Anniversary of the opening of the original Desert Year, and 5 years from the day Wynn purchased the site.
The Wynn resort is located at the northeast intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Sands Avenue, directly across the Strip from the Fashion Show Mall, and just north of the Palazzo/Venetian complex. The hotel features 2,716 rooms that range in size from 640 sq feet to the villas at 7,000 sq feet. The Nevada Gaming commission lists the size of the Wynn's casino, including the Encore, at 186,187 feet. I would estimate the square feet to be about 110,000 for the Wynn and 75,000 for the Encore.
Together with the adjacent Encore which opened in late 2008, the entire Wynn resort complex has a total of 4,750 rooms. Its height is 614 ft and there are 45 floors. The resort has earned AAA 5 diamond, Forbes (Mobil) five-star, and Michelin five-star ratings and is considered to be one of the finest hotels in the United States. Both the Wynn and Encore collectively hold more Forbes five-star awards than any other resort and casino in the world. Wynn Las Vegas also made Forbes Award history by earning five-star ratings in every category - Hotel, Restaurant, and Spa - for two consecutive years. (Source: Wikipedia)
I stayed at the Wynn from March 5 to 9, 2009. Here is my review.
We stayed at the Wynn from March 5 to 9, 2010, over 4 nights. We booked the trip through Expedia.com as a package. Because most hotels have a lowest advertised rate policy on their own web site, the only way that you can get rates below the advertised rate is to purchase the hotel stay as part of a package. In this way, we were able to take advantage of a $95/night rate plus the 12% Nevada Hotel tax ($11.40/night) and a $75 resort credit. We could not pass up this offer for a premium hotel in Las Vegas. The hotel seemed to be more crowded on Sunday and Monday night than during the weekend, indicating that a busy convention was in town during the week.
The registration in the hotel is conveniently located close to the doors where the taxi lets you off. The registration lobby itself is fairly small, with desks located on either side, and with no preference to membership as in other hotels. The line happened to be Wendy's style that night, but without any ropes or indications on where to queue, the line-up could be disorganized with many people in different lines. As it stood, with us checking in around 8:30pm on Friday night, there was one person in front of us. Check in took a few minutes to complete and we were served within a couple of minutes.
The room that was assigned to us was a 'Resort Room', the lowest category, on the 9th floor overlooking the back of the hotel and the golf course. I kindly asked the clerk if she had anything else available on a higher floor. She made a call, and we were reassigned a room on the 26th floor overlooking the strip. Normally I try the “$20 trick” (where you give the clerk $20 with your credit card and ask kindly if any upgrades are available) up front, but I had heard attempts like this do not work at this hotel. Instead, I tipped the clerk afterwards $20 for getting us a much better room. She offered to upgrade our room to a suite for a nominal fee of $200 per night, which we of course turned down!
Our room keys also served as the Wynn/Encore's 'Red Card', the Player Card’s program. It seemed a bit disconcerting that you could lose your player's card in one of the machines and any passer-by could pick up your room key. We were given no coupons, just directions to our room.
The resort elevators are in the back of the casino, approximately 100 yards from the registration desk. Finding the elevators was pretty easy, and there are two banks of elevators serving both the lower floors (seven elevators) and the upper floors. Our room was very close to the elevator but during our stay, the only noise we heard in our rooms was the sound of the adjacent door closing.
The room itself was very large and well appointed as you would expect. The bed was king-sized (extremely comfortable) with night tables and a clock radio with an IPod docking station. There was a small couch with an ottoman on the right side of the room. Near the floor-to-ceiling windows is a desk on the right hand side with a HP printer where you can send and receive faxes as well as a jack to plug in your computer (wireless is also available), a night stand and a phone. The phone is personalized with your name appearing on the screen (a nice touch). Local/800 calls were $1.25/call. The TV was a 42 inch Sharp Aquos LCTV HDTV which was folded to the wall and could be turned to face the bed or the couch so you could watch TV from anywhere in the room. Channels were limited, but you are in Las Vegas after all. The room had an easy to use temperature control and the noise of the fan was very quiet. The windows were floor-to-ceiling and the room itself seemed to be about 20 feet wide. As well, there was a long, narrow vent at the base of the window that you could open and close to let in fresh air. The only drawback to the vent is that you could hear the noise from the outside, which included, unfortunately, the background rhythms from the Tryst nightclub all Friday and Saturday night.
The view overlooked the Lake of Dreams (Wynn's waterfall), Treasure Island, and the Venetian. Because the hotel is set back from the strip, you could not see past the Palazzo complex to the south. Texas holdem poker 3d deluxe edition full version free download 1 1 0 9. However, there were gorgeous views of the mountains.
As well, there was a well-stocked mini-bar and snacks. All were weighted, meaning that if you took the item for longer than 60 seconds you would be charged for the item. This was well explained both at the check-in counter and in the room itself. There was no coffee maker. The safe was the standard kind in Vegas with a four digit code to lock. You could also swipe a credit card to lock and unlock the door. The Wynn also supplied robes.
The very large bathroom featured both a large shower (fully glass enclosed) and a full sized soaker tub with double vanity sinks and a chair to sit in, with marble flooring. There was small 14” LCD television in the bathroom as well which could be viewed from the tub or from the sinks. The Wynn provided larger than normal bottles of shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer and shower gel and a well stocked vanity basket.
The Wynn/Encore boasts a variety of restaurants from Cafes to Michelin 2 Star french cuisine. We took park in the Wynn buffet and found it to be extremely good with a fantastic selection, but not quite worth the $40 price. Actually, I thought that all of the restaurants and items in the Wynn resort was overpriced by about 30%. For example, a 16 oz dark roast coffee was $3.75 in the hotel café, while the Starbucks across the street at the Fashion Mall was available for $1.85. We did eat a couple of times in the Terrace Point Cafe which was mostly empty at the time we ate (9:00pm). The food there was generally fine with the exception of the Lobster Agnoletti. While the lobster was quite plentiful, the pasta itself was very sticky (as if it had not been rinsed after cooking).
We also lunched at Zoozacrackers and had Roast Beef and Corned Beef sandwiches on rye bread. Though expensive, the sandwiches were packed with meat and were very tasty.
Here is a list of fancy restaurants available at the Wynn with links to their websites.
- Alex — French, Michelin 2 stars, AAA 5 Diamond Award, James Beard Foundation Award.
- Wing Lei — French influenced Shanghai, Michelin 1 star, AAA 4 Diamond Award
- SW Steakhouse — AAA 4 Diamond Award
- Daniel Boulod — French Brasserie, Michelin 1 Star
- Bartolotta — Italian Coastal Cuisine, AAA 4 Diamond Award
- Okada — Japanese, AAA 4 Diamond Award
- Country Club Grill — A New American Steakhouse
- Stratta — 'Casual yet stylish dining experience'
- Tableau — Modern American Cuisine
The following are the casual dining options are the Wynn.
- Red 8 — Chinese
- Terrace Pointe Cafe — American
- Zoozacrackers — Deli
- Cafe at the Drugstore — Coffee, sandwiches, & donuts
- Pizza Place
According to the Wynn's own website, the casino is 110,000 square feet which seemed to be right. According to Nevada Gaming, the casino has 2,900 slot machines and 270 table games. I believe that these figures total both of Encore and Wynn's casinos together as I could not find figures for Encore. That said, I would estimate that the Wynn's casino is about 70,000 square feet and the Encore's 40,000 square feet.
The casinos feature 17 craps tables (I counted 11 at the Wynn and 6 at the Encore), 126 '21' tables (which I didn’t count), including the dreaded 6-5 blackjack tables, and Blackjack Switch. Limits varied between $10 and $25 depending on the time of day. As well, the casinos feature the standard table games (Pai-Gow – poker and tiles, Let it Ride, Caribbean Stud, 4-Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold-em Poker, and 3-card poker. As well, ShuffleMaster’s Rapid Roulette game was featured.
The Wynn's casino is laid out in a rectangular pattern split into four quadrants with wide walkways in the middle, which made it very easy to navigate. The casino is surrounded by the Parasol Bar and Lake of Dreams at the front of the Casino and the registration area. Restaurants and nightclubs are all along the sides of the hotel walkways to the convention centre and Encore at the back. When you walk into the magnificent Wynn, the first word that might come into your mind is “red”. The casino itself features bright red colors, high ceilings, and elegant lighting. There is a Red Card booth in each quadrant which you can use to break bills, cash in ticket redemptions, sign up for the Red Card (Player's Card), and inquire about comps.
I found that the Wynn's table limits varied considerably throughout the day. As tables became full, they raised the limits from $10-15 to $25-$100 to discourage new players from joining. This happened to us several times where we were playing at a lower limit but new players had to play more.
The Encore’s casino is much smaller and intimate than the Wynn and was much quieter. This is probably due to the Wynn’s better access to the rest of the strip (the front entrance seemed to be under construction). I believe that the Encore casino is aimed only at its guests as the casino is quite small. It has one central walkway and two walkways from the front to the back of the casino. The colors are also a very bright red with beautiful, opulent red chandeliers and very cheerful. That said, I found the Encore’s layout to be somewhat confusing. When you enter the casino from the Wynn, it is difficult to navigate to find your way from the corridors to the tables which are at the opposite corner of the casino.
Overall, both Casinos feature an excellent ventilation system. My clothes did not smell like smoke at any point during my stay, despite many smokers being present at the tables. As well, the hotel’s scent is not as overpowering as it is at the Venetian/Palazzo complex.
I would rate the Casino itself as first class. Here is a summary of the games:
I found no tables with liberal rules that I could see. However, the blackjack survey here does say that they do exist. Because I am not a high-limit player, I did not find any games where the dealers stood on 17.
Craps tables offered generous 'downtown' odds (31/16 for one on horn bets, 10/8 for one on hard ways, 3X on field 12s, and pay vig on win buy bets ($25 4/10, 1.11% HA). Table limits were from $10 to $100. It was very entertaining there, with young men playing in their pool robes at a reserved table, while another set of players at another $100 reserved table featured a young Asian woman with a miniskirt that went way too high, forcing the craps dealers to personally walk around the table to hand you your Red Card, only to catch a peek.
Single zero did not seem to be available. Available at $10 - $25.
Available at $15 - $50 depending on time of day. Banking allowed every other hand by asking, otherwise, it was not offered. My wife and I were able to advise and comment on each other's hands without any issues.

It was outside of my gambling budget, but there is a $5,000 slot machine in the high-limit room. The Wizard says it is the highest denomination slot in Vegas to the best of his knowledge.
vpFree2 states that the best $1 game is FP bonus at 99% and at $.25 cents DDB at 98.3%. I found $.25 9/6/5 DB with a progressive jackpot at $1150 (98.2%) which I played. They changed the EPROM overnight and it turned into a much crappier 9/6/4 machine (96.6%). I found many different kinds of video poker including multi-play at denominations from $.25 to $5. Slots: The Slots at the Wynn are fairly comparable to those featured at other casinos at denominations from $.01 to $5. Games were old and new and were interspersed together throughout the floor with denominations of slots grouped together.
The Red Card
The Red Card program offers 1 point per $3 slot in and $9 video poker in. We accumulated 1,000 points during our stay, worth $10 in cash back, which I feel was quite stingy. And no 'Free Play'. We also presented our Red Card at tables and we were asked to consult the casino host for comps during our stay. The pit boss did put both of our action together. The Red Card’s program is somewhat of a mystery. The Web Site does not talk about redemption or accumulation of points.
Our Own Gambling
Over four nights, we played about 8 hours of $40 craps (4 bets x $10 per come out), 4 hours of $30 pai gow (2 hands at $15), 4 hours of $15/$25 Blackjack and Blackjack Switch, as well at 4 hours of video poker and a few hours at the slots.
At the end of the stay, I asked the agent at the front desk what she could do for us on the 'Red Card'. She made a call (I assume to the host) and our room food charges (about $100) was comped which was a pleasant surprise.
Our stay at the Wynn was probably the best of our many Vegas experiences that we've had. The casino is first rate with table limits about the same as any other upper tier strip hotel (Bellagio, Venetian, Paris). The hotel itself features very large rooms that are luxurious in nature.
My only recommendations for improvement are the following:
- Clarify the check in and check out area to clearly indicate where people are supposed to wait when checking in and checking out.
- Decrease the price of food by about 20%, especially in the morning.
- Loosen the player's card rewards somewhat to allow for more Cashback or FreePlay based on play.

With an abundance of casino reward programs available today, the Wynn Red Card Club is like a single fish in a huge body of water. The Red Card Club is Wynn Resorts Holdings’ response to the competition and seems to be one of the most popular casino reward programs in the United States.
The perks it offers are inviting: from exclusive invitations, member-only rates, and gaming bonuses to private invitations, elite announcements, and special promotions. Couple those perks with the fact that the program is completely free to join and takes little time (or requirements) to process, and we can admit the program is worthwhile.
Signing up for the Wynn Red Card Club
To sign up for the program you simply have to visit the Red Card Club desk at any Wynn Resorts Holdings destination and provide a valid government-issued photo ID (passport or driver’s license) to verify your identity. You must be 21 years or older and a valid Social Security Number is also required for American citizens. Once they input all of your information into their system, you’ll be registered and should receive a players card almost immediately.
Although it is highly recommended for high-rollers, smaller players also stand a chance of receiving some impressive offers. You do not have to lavish a lot of money on Wynn services. In fact, there is a TripAdvisor Forum thread in which most players admit to be low-rollers and still receive exclusive offers from the Wynn Red Card Club from time to time. As a rule of thumb, we advise players to opt for a casino reward program that offers the perks they personally want and that gives them the opportunity to climb to the top of the tier ladder in a reasonable timeframe.
Which Casinos Use The Wynn Red Card?
Ultimately, the Wynn Red Card is used at every gaming property that is owned Wynn Resorts Holdings. As of 2018, they only operate a total of 3 casinos; two in the United States (Las Vegas) and one in Macau. With that said, they are regarded as some of the finest casinos in the world – each with avant-garde designs, luxurious offerings, and elegant services.
– Wynn Las Vegas & Encore Resort
– Wynn Macau
Compared to other large gaming companies, Wynn Resorts does not have nearly as many locations. For example Total Rewards by Caesars Entertainment is used at more than 50 destinations in the United States and Canada and M life Rewards by MGM Resorts International is used at nearly 20 destinations in the United States and Macau SAR.
Wynn Red Card Club Tiers
Most, if not all, casino reward programs have different hierarchical tiers/levels that are based on a players loyalty and expenses. This is how the casino ranks their members, and most reward programs work based on the same mechanism:
– A member joins the program and starts out at the lowest tier.
– The member would spend on the company’s services (gaming, dining, hotel, spa, entertainment, etc.) at the participating destinations and/or use the program’s credit card to make purchases.
– The member would receive tier credits and/or points according to a pre-defined formula based on the service(s) the member spend on and the number of purchases made via the credit card. Credits earned through services are quite scalable as the casino games the member wagers on and the value of each wager is always important; in fact, average bet size and other parameters determine the points and/or tier credits. Similarly, checking in the most expensive suite for a month would apparently earn the member more tier credits and/or points than checking in a typical room for a week.
– The credits and/or points are always used in two ways: either to move the member up tiers or used as rewards/offers/discounts if redeemable.
While this mechanism is general, the Wynn Red Card Club works in a similar, but slightly different way. However, the program implemented the use of hierarchical tiers recently and the official website is information-deficient, so some necessary details were not found when writing this piece. For example, we do not know if each tier has a qualifying amount of tier credits or not, but it seems cardholders move up tiers without a pre-defined list of requirements or the company keeps its list of requirements secret.
This is the first tier, which a cardholder is automatically placed in upon successful registration. Perks are a handful: 10 percent discounts on your favorite tantalizing dishes at Wynn restaurants and access to (and early notification for) ferry tickets, special rates, exclusive events, and personalized promotions.
The second tier increases the discounts on your preferred meals at Wynn restaurants to 15 percent. And in addition to everything Red has to offer, Gold cardholders enjoy line privilege, spa reservations, and significant medicinal menu items at Wynn spas in the United States and Macau SAR.
Diamond cardholders are up for special treatments. First, cardholders enjoy 20 percent discounts on their dining bills at Wynn restaurants. On top of the Gold perks, Diamond cardholders relish limousine service to and from establishments; access to a special area for hotel check-ins; access to private dining rooms and fine dining tables (although based on availability); and birthday gifts.
Believe us, you really are a chairman if you are loyal enough to earn this status. And although its perks are not numerous, they are the best you can get with the Wynn Red Card Club. For one, discounts on your dining bills at Wynn restaurants are increased to 25 percent. Second, you gain access to complimentary parking in addition to all perks that come with the Diamond status.
Wynn Red Card Benefits
How to Earn Wynn Red Card Club Points and Credits
The end result of joining any casino reward program is to enjoy the perks — and to do so, you need to earn credits. These credits are often used to determine your membership status and redeemed for offers, bonuses, discounts, and other commercial promotions. However, the emphasis here is not the uses of credits but how to earn credits and relish the Red Card experience — but in actuality, there are only points and no credit.
Gambling at Wynn Properties
Yes, of course! Gambling is the primary way to earn points in the Wynn Red Card Club — and there are more than just points; you can win free buffets, discounted hotel rooms, etc. At every single casino in all Wynn destinations, there are hundreds to thousands of gaming machines (slot and video poker) and hundreds of table games available for players to stand a chance to be the next big winner. Available table games include Roulette, Craps, Blackjack, and Big 6.
– Slot Machines: Earn 1 point for every $1.50 coin-in
– Video Poker: Earn 1 point for every $6 or $15 coin-in (varies based on the game)
– Table Games: Points are earned based on average bet size and length of play
Members can also earn comps through table games, slot machines, video poker machines, race betting, sports betting, and poker. Comps depend on your average bet and time, and even the type of games you wager on. You simply need to track your play on the gaming machine by inserting your card, on the table game by giving the dealer your card, and on sports and race betting by giving the ticket writer your card — and watch your comps increase as you wager.
Shopping at Participating Stores
For shopping at participating Wynn shops, the club will not reward you with points or credits but actual rewards like the latest Samsung flagships (Samsung Galaxy S9 64GB and S9 Plus 128GB), Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve Scotch Whisky, and Versace Eros Perfume for Men 100ml.
Spending Money at Wynn Properties
Unlike Total Rewards or M life where members earn credits individually for dining, spa, entertainment, and other bills as each has its own pre-defined formula, all are summed up in one in the Wynn Red Card Club. So, regardless if you spend $2,000 on your favorite singer’s concert, a fancy room, three Versace items, or anything at all, you will receive something. As long as the purchase (of a product or service) is made at a participating establishment, you can earn virtually anything: from discounted room rates and free buffets to FREECREDIT and special offers.
And unlike others, the Wynn Red Card Club does not disclose the system behind its rewards — but there is a general rule: the more you spend, the more you get and the higher you move up tiers.
Note: There are no tier credits; tier upgrades are determined by systems only known to the club. You can only earn points by gambling on slot and video poker machines, others are comps, offers, rewards, and other promotions.
Example Computation of How to Earn Credits
Let’s say you visit Wynn Las Vegas and while staying at the hotel, you lavish $5,000 on the accommodation, foods, beverages, a 90-minute massage, and cabanas. Then, you visit a shop and spend $2,000. Lastly, you enter a casino area at Encore Resort and spend a total of $8,5000 ($3,000 on slot machines, $3,500 on video poker machines, and $2,000 on Roulette).
Unfortunately, we can only calculate the points you will accumulate from your wagers on slot machines as others are not pre-defined and the formula that determines the type and denomination of video poker machines is not disclosed either.
1 Point per $1.5 coin-in
$3,000 / 1.5 = 2000 Points
So, with your overall bill of $15,500, you will earn 2,000 points in addition to more points we cannot calculate. However, it is quite evident that you will receive a lot of points — considering $3,000 coin-in on slot machines gave you 2,000 points.
Using Wynn Red Card Club Points and Current Offers
While it is factually unknown if points secretly determine your tier, there are some ways in which you can savor the experience through the numerous offers currently available for Red Club members.
This is one of the reasons most people consider the Wynn Red Card Club more of a players club than a casino reward program. Promotions and offers for shopping are overwhelming and even on the website, the Promotions tab list more shopping promotions and no gambling promotion.
With the shopping promotions, instead of pulling money from your bank account or credit card, you can spend your accumulated points to make purchases at participating shops. These are shops situated at Wynn Cotai, Wynn Macau, and Wynn Las Vegas.
To welcome you to the world of Red Card treats, you get to spin a guaranteed-winner wheel as soon as you reach 300 points. As a guaranteed-winner wheel, you will surely win something — the least is a $10 FREECREDIT on slot machines, but prizes are as scalable as $10,000 worth of show tickets and buffets. And as soon as you reach the 750 points mark, you and your guest will be offered a free dinner at any participating restaurant (more than 30 in the United States and Macau SAR). Challenge yourself to meet the 1,300 points mark and luxuriate with your guest in two free dinners, breakfasts, lunches, or buffets.
Red Card Club members automatically receive FREECREDIT based on the number of points they have. Members earn $1 in FREECREDIT for every 100 points. Once a member accrues 1,000 points they can redeem $10 in FREECREDIT by inserting their card into any machine and entering their PIN. Points must be redeemed to FREECREDIT within 12 months and the FREECREDIT must be used within 30 days. Also, you can receive special FREECREDIT offers from the Wynn Red Card Club depending on your previous gambling expenses.
Although ending on June 30, 2018, Gold, Diamond, and Chairman members can get a thrill of pearl Caviar beads and 24K Gold extract to hydrate, relax, and rejuvenate their skin for 150 minutes for a discounted price of 2,888 Macanese Pataca (currently US$357.48) at the Spa at Wynn Cotai. This is called the Wynn Palace Gold Ritual Offer.
The second offer is dubbed the Wynn Macau Massage Indulgence and also for Gold, Diamond, and Chairman members. Cardholders get a 90-minutes massage alongside a 30-minutes additional at either the Spa at Wynn Macau (Macanese Massage) or the Spa at Encore Macau (East West Massage).
To market the newly-launched website WynnRedCard.com, the club is giving out welcome gifts to members for registering an online account. Welcome gifts range from personalized offers to exclusive online offers and event invitations.
This is different from the first point. According to the first, the club allows you to shop with your accumulated points. But here, the club actually rewards you for shopping at the participating shops in Wynn Las Vegas, Wynn Cotai, and Wynn Macau. While the requirements or pre-defined points for each reward are not disclosed, there is a wealth of items categorized as follows: electronics, luxury, travel accessories, health & beauty, accessories, Apple, Samsung, and gourmet.
On top of that, each membership status has its own rewards — so, Red members are up for rewards different from those for Diamond members. Lastly, these rewards are mostly expensive products by famous manufacturers (such as Versace, Johnnie Walker, Hennessy, Bose, Samsung, Apple, Gucci, YSL, Sony, B&O, Fujifilm, and Huawei) and Wynn-branded items such as vacuum flasks, power banks, umbrellas, etc.
Tracking Wynn Red Card Club Points
Similar to other casino reward players club, the Wynn Red Card Club has a website dubbed Red Card Online (RCO; located at WynnRedCard.com), where members can create an online account, sign in, track and check their gaming bonuses, and manage their preferences of communications and information.
The website is as user-friendly and easy-to-navigate as the Total Rewards website we talked about earlier. All info — from the tiniest to the most significant — are provided instantly, and the website is accessible from a mobile, tablet, or desktop device.
Alternatively, a member can also swipe his card and enter his PIN to log in at the new Red Card Service Counter kiosks. By swiping your card, you will be presented with your status (tier), personalized and exclusive promotions and offers, and redeemable rewards. Interestingly, these kiosks are available in all Wynn destinations in the United States and Macau SAR. They are often easy to spot as they are spread throughout the casino floor.
Lastly, there is a third way to track your account details: the Red Card Online Services telephone number. By dialing (866) 770-7551, you will be connected with a responsive correspondent who you can ask to give an update on your account details such as status, offers, and rewards.
About Wynn Resorts Holdings
Founded in 2002 by famous American real estate tycoon Steve Wynn, Wynn Resorts Holdings, LLC is a well-known holding enterprise with a subsidiary that owns and operates a number of properties which offer casino, dining, hotel, entertainment, and resort services.
As of 2016, the company had more than 25,000 employees and a revenue of $4.4 billion. Interestingly, the company is dubbed “the highest rated resort company” due to the total number of awards the company has managed to receive from global media company Forbes. The awards are called Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Awards, and Wynn Resorts has won 16.
Wynn Resorts Casino Properties
In regards to properties, the company currently operates three establishments in the United States and Macau SAR. The company’s front-runner luxury establishment is Wynn Las Vegas & Encore Resort (popularly regarded as simply Wynn), which is located on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada, United States. Wynn Macau is — like the name suggests — located in the Las Vegas of Asia (i.e. Macau Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China), and has been the largest-grossing resort in Macau SAR for a time now.
Wynn Cotai (also known as Wynn Palace and Wynn Palace Cotai) is also located in Macau SAR but instead of on the Macau Peninsula like Wynn Macau, it is located on the Cotai Strip. Meanwhile, the company has a fourth resort under construction: Wynn Boston Harbor (previously rumored as the Wynn Everett project), located in the city of Everett, Massachusetts (not really the city of Boston, but nearby), and expected to open in 2019.
Interestingly, each destination of Wynn Resorts Holdings is as luxurious as it gets. From top-class gaming (slot machines, video poker games, and table games), rooms, and suites to more than 30 restaurants with diverse, world-class buffets and dishes.
In addition, there are stupendous and award-winning day-clubs, nightclubs, bars, lounges, concert halls, event centres, theatres, shows, spas, pools, salons, shops, fitness centres, a refined race and sports book (the Encore Race & Sports Book), a players lounge (the Encore Players Lounge), and experiences (Dining, Sports, Shows, and Master Classes).
Encore Players Lounge
Particularly, the Encore Players Lounge focuses more on millennials — with numerous seats, gaming tables, slot machines, mobile sports betting, a booth for DJs to electrify the crowd live, an handcrafted pool table by industry-leader Blatt Billiards, a cocktail bar with a specialty project, a table shuffleboard, and over 20high-definition televisions with 52-inch each offering an exceptional viewing experience of sporting events.
Wynn Casino Blackjack Rules
WorldCasinoIndex’s verdict on the Wynn Red Card Club is quite evident. The program is worthwhile, especially as an addition to other reward programs like Total Rewards or M life. (Yes, no one will stop you from subscribing to more than one casino reward program or players club.) Players get special perks … and although they might not as impressive as what the two aforementioned programs have to offer for some players, they are all some want and a plus for some since they are free — it is a win-win for you. Therefore, join the Red Card Club today to enjoy incentives for what you already do.
Notwithstanding, there have been many accusations that Steve Wynn — the businessman behind the company — is a self-centered individual who uses the Wynn Red Card Club to track winnings and once he notices a huge winner (especially a successful blackjack pro), he will ban the winner indefinitely. Even though the accusations might be false, the whole club seems too secretive as basic details about the club cannot be found anywhere on the Internet.
As a result, the verdict is a tricky one. The perks are worthwhile but what if the accusations are true and the founder eventually bans you from winning big? This one is for you to decide.
