The Sycuan Casino in El Cajon, California (which is near San Diego) is a luxury destination that offers high-class gaming for gamblers of all skill levels. Not only do they have headline acts like Dana Carvey and Rodney Carrington, but this casino also has five fantastic restaurants, plenty of gaming options, and a very promising loyalty rewards program that was just overhauled earlier this year. The service and accommodations were also excellent at the Sycuan Casino, so we were very optimistic entering this review.
The Sycuan Casino Rewards Overview
The new loyalty rewards program at the Sycuan Casino is called the Club Sycuan, and they obviously created this VIP membership to compete with the other big boy casinos in the state of California. Room comps, free cash, and other perks are now very common at this premiere destination and that’s really only the beginning of its benefits.
The Sycuan Casino Rewards – The Good
Any casino that offers to fly us out and put us up in a luxury resort for a poker tournament will always receive a nod of respect from our staff, and since Club Sycuan now offers these types of promotions we couldn’t help but appreciate it. There are also comps available for just about anything you see inside the Sycuan Casino; food, concert tickets, room upgrades, and concierges. The real benefit of the Sycuan Casino rewards program is the instant cash back from your play at the tables.
Let’s say that you visit for a weekend and end up winning a few thousand dollars. Well, consistent gambling at that level will earn you quite a number of rewards points, and at any time during your stay you can walk up to the cashier and tell them to pay you on your rewards points. It really doesn’t get any better than that.
The Sycuan Casino Rewards- The Bad
Although the overall rewards program is very good at Sycuan Casino, there are not a whole lot of perks for casual gamblers who play at the $5-10 tables. Now, don’t get us wrong, you could always ask for a complimentary meal and the pit boss may provide that for you, but we consider that more of a player knowing how to work the system than an actual reward. The only other complaint that we had while staying at the Sycuan Casino was a round of golf that was comped for us; nobody mentioned that we had to reserve a tee-off time the night before and we ended up not getting to play. That was really our faults for not checking but other top-level rewards casinos would have a concierge take care of those arrangements for us.
The Sycuan Casino Rewards- Overall
Overall, our stay at the Sycuan Casino was full of fun, relaxation, and great sight-seeing. The area itself is beautiful, the new Club Sycuan program is awesome, and the dealers were about as good as we’ve seen in recent months. Besides the little golf mix-up, it was a perfect gambling getaway for our staff.
