GLÜCKS CARD PROGRAMME "POINTS & MORE“

Casinos Austria AG ("Casinos Austria” ) offers the Glücks Card "points & more” programme, a bonus programme which only provides benefits to participants when they visit an establishment of Casinos Austria. Participation in the Glücks Card "points & more” programme is voluntary and does not give rise to an obligation of membership.

The following terms and conditions and the privacy statement of the Casinos Austria AG & Österreichische Lotterien GmbH group of companies are applicable to the participation, the acquisition and redemption of bonuses, and the general implementation of the Glücks Card "points & more” programme. If participation in the programme takes place through the My Casinos Austria App, then the terms of use and privacy statement of the My Casinos Austria App also apply.

Participation in Casinos Austria's range of games is subject to applicable
laws and the visiting and gaming rules.

The link requires verification of the registered user by presenting an official photo ID during a visit to an establishment of Casinos Austria before, during or after registration.

1.3. Amendment of data

Participants are obliged to notify Casinos Austria of any change in their personal data without undue delay.

1.4. Glücks Card

If participation in the Glücks Card "points & more” programme is made in accordance with section 1.2.1. (upon request), then the participant
shall be given the personal Glücks Card at an establishment of Casinos Austria.

If participation in the Glücks Card „points & more” programme is made in accordance with section 1.2.2. (after My Casinos Austria App registration), then the participant shall be given the personal physical Glücks Card at an establishment of Casinos Austria upon request. 

The Glücks Card shall remain the property of Casinos Austria and is placed at the disposal of the participant free of charge for the duration
of eligibility. The participant is obliged to handle the Glücks Card with care and must hand it over to Casinos Austria upon termination of participation in the Glücks Card „points & more” programme.

The Glücks Card is strictly personal and non-transferable. Glücks Card holders are required to prove their identity upon request.

The Glücks Card has a unique PIN code, which may not be disclosed to any third party. Participants may refer to one of our staff members in an establishment if they have forgotten or wish to change their PIN.

The Glücks Card also has a magnetic strip, which stores the card number that is visible on the card.

The PIN code and magnetic strip permit access to the electronic cash wallet, which can be topped up with gaming capital or used for paying with game credits.

The bonus programme has several levels. Depending on how many status points participants accumulate in a calendar year, they will be given a Glücks Card 'RED', 'GOLD' or 'PLATINUM' in the casino.

2. GLÜCKS CARD BONUS PROGRAMME

2.1. Welcome chips and benefits

2.1.1. Welcome chips

Every Glücks Card holder can acquire gaming capital worth EUR 30 at a reduced price per visit and day of gaming in an establishment of Casinos Austria.

2.1.2. Benefits of the Glücks Card 'points & more' programme 

Current Glücks Card „points & more” programme benefits and promotions can be found on the website at casinos.at/en/casinos-austria/gluecks-card. Benefits and promotions can also be found in mailings and information sent by email, information in the My Casinos Austria App and in information material available in an establishment.

2.2. Acquiring lucky points and status points

Every participant can acquire lucky points and status points per session (Glücks Card in - Glücks Card out) based on the amount transacted/bet (sum of all the stakes put up):

EUR 10 transacted/bet on an electronic gaming machine (except roulette and poker machines) = one lucky point and one status point

EUR 20 transacted/bet on an electronic gaming machine (on roulette and poker machines) = one lucky point and one status point

EUR 20 transacted/bet on easy roulette and stadium games = one lucky point and one status point

Casinos Austria may also create additional opportunities to acquire lucky points and status points.

The respective points balance can be found on the app and in mailings sent by email or requested at the reception of an establishment of Casinos
Austria. 

No more than 3,000 lucky points may be obtained per day of gaming and participant. There is no limit on the amount of status points that can be acquired. Details can be found on the website at casinos.at/en/casinos-austria/gluecks-card. 

2.3. Redeeming lucky points

Acquired lucky points can be exchanged for services and merchandise of Casinos Austria from the following day of gaming after the Glücks Card is presented in person at an establishment. The oldest valid lucky points are always used up first when lucky points are redeemed. Casinos Austria is entitled to engage third parties to provide the services, as well as to enable the redemption of lucky points at third parties, including but not limited to its cooperation partners. The period of validity, required number of lucky points to be redeemed, and nature of the services can be found on the website at casinos.at/en/casinos-austria/gluecks-card and the My Casinos Austria App. There is no redeemable cash value.

Status points cannot be redeemed.

2.4. Classification and benefits of status points

Status points define classification to one of three levels. 

Based on status points, the following levels can be reached in the Glücks Card 'points & more' programme:

Glücks Card 'RED': less than 2,000 status points

Participants with the Glücks Card 'RED' receive mainly event invitations, treats and can exclusively participate in prize games and special lucky point promotions.

Glücks Card 'GOLD': from 2,001 to 20,000 status points 

In addition to the benefits of Glücks Card 'RED', participants can also make use of dining services, as defined.

Glücks Card 'PLATINUM': more than 20,001 status points

Participants can make use of additional services beyond the benefits of Glücks Card 'GOLD'.

Classification to the next higher level happens automatically once the respective number of status points is exceeded. The status is always valid for the current and following calendar year as soon as the level is reached.

The period of calculation for status points runs from 1 January to 31 December of each year.

2.5. F&B consumption based on status points

2.5.1. Eligibility

Depending on status, the cardholder has an exclusive entitlement to make use of offers and benefits associated with the Glücks Card 'GOLD' or 'PLATINUM' when consuming food or beverages (F&B services) in an establishment of Casinos Austria.

In each case, valid F&B offers may only be made use of after the cardholder presents the Glücks Card in person at any bar or gaming area of Casinos Austria but not in restaurants of Cuisino (indoor and outdoor areas). We reserve the right to amend offers. In each case, valid bar menus are available in the bar areas.

2.5.2. Improper use

Giving the Glücks Card 'GOLD' or 'PLATINUM' to a third party for the purpose of F&B consumption constitutes improper use of the Glücks Card.

Casinos Austria may at any time discontinue the provision of F&B services in the event of improper consumer behaviour (e.g. consumption for reasons other than personal enjoyment, excessive consumption of alcohol) by the cardholder or immediately exclude the participant from the Glücks Card „points & more” programme in accordance with section 3.2. of the Eligibility Requirements.

2.6. Expiry of lucky points and status points

Lucky points are valid for at least 24 months (two years) from their acquisition. Any lucky points older than two years automatically expire with no entitlement to replacement once each year (cut-off date: 30 December).

Status points are reset to zero once each year (cut-off date: 1 January), after which participants start collecting for the next 12-month period of calculation.

3. TERMINATION OF PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAMME

In the event of termination of participation in the programme (by either the participant or Casinos Austria, exclusion from participation in the programme), any lucky points or status points shall expire. This means that the participant shall no longer be entitled to benefits associated with Glücks Card "points & more” programme.

Any game credits on the Glücks Card will be transferred to a non-personalised game card in an establishment.

The participant is required to return the Glücks Card to an establishment of Casinos Austria after termination of participation in the programme.

If the participant has enabled the Glücks Card functionality in accordance with section 1.2.2. in the app, then this functionality shall be disabled automatically upon exclusion from the programme.

3.1. Termination by the participant

In this case, the planned termination will be announced on the website at casinos.at/en/casinos-austria/gluecks-card and/or in the app at least two months beforehand. Lucky points and status points cannot be collected after termination of the Glücks Card „points & more” programme. Lucky points already collected must be redeemed within one month of termination of the Glücks Card "points & more” programme or otherwise forfeited.

If the Glücks Card "points & more” programme is terminated, then any associated discounts and benefits arising from the programme shall expire within one month of termination. 

Casinos Austria also reserves the right to discontinue the Glücks Card "points & more” programme in full or in part at any time without prior notice if its implementation proves inadmissible due to legal regulations or the binding decisions of a court or administrative body. The participant has no claim against Casinos Austria for discontinuation of all or parts of the Glücks Card "points & more” programme, including if it is no longer possible to redeem lucky points or promotional offers, in such a case.

4. LIABILITY AND DISCLAIMER


4.1. Participant's liability in the event of improper use of the Glücks Card

4.2. Disclaimer

Casinos Austria shall only be liable in the event of intent or gross negligence if the participant is unable to acquire or redeem lucky points or status points or otherwise enjoy all the benefits arising from the Glücks Card "points & more” programme due to a malfunction or indication error in the technical operation of Casinos Austria. 

Furthermore, Casinos Austria and its contractual partners shall not be liable for any damages suffered by participants in connection with their participation in the Glücks Card "points & more” programme, unless Casinos Austria or one of its contractual partners has acted with intent or gross negligence with regard to the occurrence of damage.

In particular, data provided by Casinos Austria regarding the services and benefits of cooperation partners offered to the participant within the framework of participating in the programme shall not be transmitted or disclosed to such cooperation partners without the participant's explicit consent. These data shall remain stored for this purpose only until the participant withdraws her/his consent.

Casinos Austria uses analysis software (profiling) for the purpose of calculating lucky points and status points, as well as for delivering mailings and information, which can be adapted individually according to the needs and requirements of the participant. Such data are also used for player  protection measures of Casinos Austria (responsible gaming).
