Breakdown of the WSOP.com VIP Program
WSOP.com has implemented its Action Club VIP Rewards Program in New Jersey. Action Club is tiered rewards system where players earn “points” based on how much volume they put in at WSOP.com. The more points a player earns the higher up the VIP ladder they climb, with progressive rewards for each step along the way.
Action Club has four monthly tiers: Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond, as well as two yearly tiers, Elite and the highly coveted Seven Stars, which comes with a litany of rewards and offers. Seven Star members are the true VIP’s at Caesars Entertainment properties, and will be treated the same way at WSOP.com.
The online VIP Program will also have a tie-in to Caesars Entertainment’s Total Rewards Program.
