Fortune Lounge Club casinos and how to make best use of reward points

Fortune Lounge Club is a famous online casino operator who runs several micro gaming-powered casinos like Royal Vegas online Images
casino, Platinum Play Casino, Vegas Palms Casino and many more. When you sign up with any of the casinos run by this operator, you will be eligible to receive some sort of matching welcome bonus. In addition to this, your account will be credited with some 2,000 free reward points. To earn more redeemable loyalty reward points, you'll be required to play any of your favorite casino games in real money mode.

Also, you have to know that certain games are designed to earn you more reward points compared to others. For instance, someone who plays poker in any of the casinos run by Fortune Lounge is entitled to receive more reward points compared to someone who plays Classic Blackjack.

Reward points which you can earn on pokies and video games

If you spend $1 on classic pokies, you will be entitled to earn 1 reward point. The same applies to players who gamble on video pokies and other unique games. However, if you wager on table games, then you're entitled to receive one reward point for every $5 spend on the game.

On the other hand, Video Poker Games earn you 1 reward point for every $20 spent. The same applies to Blackjack games, Baccarat, and Craps. However, Classic Blackjack is the worst rewarding of all games since players are supposed to spend $100 to earn 1 reward point. This is not the correct way to stretch the dollar on these games.

The most popular games to keep your eye out for

If you’re going to play at any online casino owned by Fortune Lounge, then you must keep in mind that there are certain games which are considered more popular than others. They are the most recommended games at Royal Vegas online casino and similar casinos owned by this gaming franchise.

Look for Tomb Raider, Jurassic park, Mega Moolah, Game of Thrones, The Dark Knight, Terminator 2, Hot as Hades, Hitman, Immotal Romance, Girls and Guns, and Untamed Crowed Eagle. These are the most exciting slot games that can potentially reward you well for your time, both in terms of entertainment and in cash money.

Silver is the lowest in the reward ladder, although you can still climb your way up

When playing slot games at Royal Vegas online casino, you will need to accumulate at least 10,000 points in order to move from silver to gold level. To maintain this level, you’ll need to keep your account active during any given month. Otherwise, your account will be downgraded to silver status.

If you’re willing to keep your account active, thereby earning at least $25k points, you will be guaranteed a Platinum status. These points have to be maintained in order to keep your Gold status. Finally, the Diamond status requires 75k points.

The bonuses that you get at every level

Every level has perks and benefits to enjoy. This includes the chance to redeem your points for cash and also participate in weekly promotions. You can earn up to 10k points when you play during your birthday. Definitely this is the best loyalty reward program you can ever have in place for the particular casino you choose to play at. Redeemable points can help you bump up your earnings, so never settle for online casinos that don’t offer a chance to redeem points.
