Ocean Casino Resort is nearing its one-year anniversary in Atlantic City.

Ocean to introduce new loyalty program

Ocean Casino Resort will introduce a new player loyalty program beginning Tuesday, Oct. 1.

Replacing the current Ocean Rewards Club, the Ocean WOW Rewards Club will add a new Chairman level for those players who accumulated or accumulate 300,000 or more points between the Oct. 1 and Sept. 30 earning period each year.

Among the benefits are suite upgrades, a once-monthly complimentary cabana at the Poseidon Pool, an annual $500 celebration dinner and luxury gift selection (including a one-year lease on a Mercedes-Benz), invitations to exclusive Chairman events, and more. Suite upgrades and complimentary cabanas require reservations, and blackout dates may apply.

Tier levels from the current Ocean Rewards Club — Blue (0 to 2,999 points), Gold (3,000 to 14,999 points), Platinum (15,000 to 74,999 points) and Black (75,000 to 299,999 points) — remain.

Among the benefits at the Platinum, Black and Chairman levels are access to the VIP Lounge. However, there is a 10 comp dollar per person charge for Platinum cardholders, but Black and Chairman cardholders receive complimentary admission. Platinum and Black cardholders are limited to one guest, but Chairman cardholders may bring up to three.

Gold and Platinum cardholders also get discounts on Carnival cruises, but Black and Chairman cardholders receive an annual complimentary Carnival cruise.

In addition to complimentary valet parking and reserved self-parking, Black and Chairman cardholders do not pay a resort fee, and also have access to a VIP reservation line and VIP check-in at the hotel.

All cardholders receive discounts at Rocco’s Italian Kitchen and Café 500, ranging from 5 percent for Blue cardholders to 10 percent for all others.
