What is a "qualified player" and how do I become one?
A qualified player is someone who has established a level of play at a casino that allows them to pre-qualify for free trips, free rooms, food or other complimentary items. A player's rating is based on their past play and is a numeric value assigned by the casino (sometimes referred to as "rating points" or "points,") Casinos evaluate a person's rating by looking at the size of their average bet, the length of time they spend playing each day & what game they are playing. Average bet & time spent playing relate directly to each other. For example, the higher a persons' average bet, the quicker they can earn enough points to qualify. The smaller the bets, the more time it takes to get rated.
Are there different levels of qualification that a player can acheive?
Yes! A player's level of qualification depends on how they play & varies according to the time played and average bets. No two people play exactly the same or will have exactly the same qualification. A basic qualification could earn a player just a comped room or meal. A higher qualification could earn free junket travel or invitations to special events. An even higher rating could mean complimentary gourmet dining, shows, better special events, limousine service & more. As your rating increases, so does the variety and number of wonderful comps & special privileges that become available to you.
I've been traveling with another company. Can I travel with Junket Tours?
If you are a qualified player with another casino or junket company, give us a call. We can honor that qualification. If we can verify your level of play, we'll be very happy to have you join us for free!
Is my rating based on the number of comp points or reward credits I earn?
No - Comp points or reward credits are earned by a player as they play and can be used to cover expenses like food, show tickets, beverages, etc. Comp points can be seen by the player when they look at their account on-line, at a rewards kiosk or at a slot machine. They ARE NOT the same things as rating points, which are not displayed to the player when they look at their account.
How many comp points or rewards credits are dedcted for travel on your junkets?
NONE! Travel with Junket Tours does not cost you ANY COMP POINTS for the flight, luggage handling, room or ground transportation. Qualified players travel at no charge & new players can join us for a very reasonable rate, and neither guest loses any comp points to travel with us. You can use your comps to cover the cost of your food, beverages & other activities while on our trips, but the trip itself costs no player ANY comp points.
What fees, taxes or service charges will be my responsibility on a junket?
Taxes vary by state, with some states able to include the taxes in the comp for the room and others having to charge the customer. Let us know what destination you are interested in visiting and we will clearly explain any & all taxes or fees applicable to your trip. Caesars Entertainment does charge a $30 Junket Experience Fee to all passengers on one of their charter jets. When the customer arrives at the hotel, they can choose to pay for this fee directly or use Reward Credits to cover it.
Any baggage fees on your junkets?
There are absolutely no baggage fees on any of our charter jet junkets. Junkets arranged by commercial airline groups are subject to the rules of that particular airline. If the commercial airline we are using for a trip has baggage fees, they would not be covered in the offer of the junket & would be the responsibility of the guest. (Guests may always avoid any commercial airline baggage fees by carrying-on their bags.)
