      5,000+ Tier Points Gold Membership Level

Calculations may vary based on table game type. Tier Points for carded poker play will be awarded based on a calculation using duration of play, rake and/or session fees.
    Membership Level is based on the number of Tier Points collected in the previous year of play (Oct 1 – Sept 30). A Member’s Tier Points will automatically be reset to Zero (0) at the beginning of the next applicable Tier Year. This will not affect the Membership Level until the following year.

    Important Note: A Member will not be eligible to earn any Cashback Points or Tier Points in this Program in relation to qualifying recorded slot play at OLG Slots at Georgian Downs. Further, any qualifying recorded slot play at any Site listed above in Section 1 will not count towards the accumulation of any points in the Player Plus program at OLG Slots at Georgian Downs.
  3. Members with multiple Cards can insert their Cards at multiple slot machines or multiple table game positions if playing more than one spot, at the discretion of the staff at a Site. The maximum number of Cards that a single Member can have simultaneously inserted into different slot machines or table game is limited to three (3) Cards. It is the Member’s responsibility to ensure that the Card is properly inserted into the slot machine or table game and accepted for play. A Member’s Card can only be used by the named Card holder and may not be placed in card readers or otherwise used by any other individual or entity.
  4. Points will automatically be tracked and allocated to each Member’s account by OLG in accordance with its official records. Points have no value outside of this Program. Points cannot be assigned, exchanged, traded, bartered, purchased, given by gift or otherwise sold. Any Points so acquired are void. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, OLG may, at its sole discretion, agree to transfer Cashback Points to the Card of the surviving spouse of a deceased Member (provided such spouse is or becomes a Member of the Program in accordance with these Terms) or issue the monetary equivalent of the outstanding Cashback points balance of the deceased WCR member made payable to the Estate, upon the Estate or surviving spouse satisfactorily meeting the terms and conditions established by OLG. OLG may, at its sole discretion, issue the monetary equivalent of the outstanding Cashback points balance of a WCR member in accordance with a valid Power of Attorney documentation, upon the Power of Attorney documentation satisfactorily meeting the terms and conditions established by OLG. The accumulation of Points does not entitle the Member to any vested rights, and OLG does not guarantee in any way the continued availability of, any Cashback Reward or any other benefit. All Points are subject to verification at any time and for any reason. OLG reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to invalidate any Points that OLG deems to have been awarded in error, or as the result of any fraudulent activity, or any activity not in keeping with the letter and/or spirit of these Terms, as interpreted by OLG in its sole discretion. Any Points that cannot be verified to the complete satisfaction of OLG are subject to disqualification. OLG, the AGCO, OLG’s advertising, promotion and management agencies, and each of their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, prize suppliers, advertising/promotion agencies and any entity involved in the development, production, administration, or fulfillment of the Program, and each of their respective officers, directors, agents, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the "Released Parties") will not be liable for, and accept no liability whatsoever in relation to, the failure of any Points to be captured or recorded for any reason. Any Points accumulated through misuse of the Card, abuse or fraud (all as determined by OLG in its sole discretion) will be forfeited. All determinations regarding whether or not a Member is eligible to earn Points in accordance with these Terms will be made by OLG in its sole discretion.
  5. As noted in Section 2, Cashback Points may be redeemed by a Member for a Cashback Reward or Cashback Rewards in accordance with the Cashback Points redemption schedule currently in force and available at the WCR desk or kiosk at a Site. Each Cashback Reward will be associated with a specified number of Cashback Points. To be eligible to redeem a Cashback Reward, the Member must have (at a minimum) the specified number of Cashback Points associated with the applicable Cashback Reward. All Cashback Rewards are subject to availability at the time of the redemption request. OLG may, in its sole discretion, cease to offer any Cashback Rewards, and may, in its sole discretion, substitute a similar Cashback Reward of equivalent or greater value for any reason. The Cashback Point value associated with each Cashback Reward shall be set by OLG, in its sole discretion, and is subject to change without notice. The Released Parties are not responsible for, and accept no liability whatsoever in relation to, incorrect Cashback Point values displayed in relation to the redemption schedule or elsewhere. After a Cashback Reward is redeemed by a Member, the specified number of Cashback Points will automatically be debited from the Member’s account. Cashback Points may not be redeemed by any person other than the Member associated with the Cashback Points. From time to time, OLG may advertise or offer exclusive offers to select Members to redeem Cashback Points for items other than a Cashback Reward, or receive other benefits (including, but not limited to, complimentaries).
  6. If a Member has no recorded play activity for twelve (12) consecutive calendar months, the Member’s account in the Program will be deemed to be ‘inactive’ and all accumulated Points will be terminated, at the sole discretion of OLG. A Member’s account will be returned to active status upon Member request and presentation of valid government-issued identification, as noted in Section 7, at any WCR desk at a Site during the thirty-six (36) month period following inactivation. Once a Member’s account is inactive, OLG will continue to maintain personal information for a minimum of thirty-six (36) months for those purposes set out in Section 21 to facilitate account reactivation and in accordance with OLG’s Corporate Classification Scheme and Retention Schedule. Inactive accounts may be sent marketing/promotional/research communication in accordance with the Member’s consent recorded in their account for receiving such materials. Once a Member’s account is inactive, OLG will continue to maintain personal information in accordance with OLG’s Corporate Classification Scheme and Retention Schedule.
  7. Valid government-issued photo identification must be presented to join the Program. A valid Card and a valid government-issued identification must be presented (and, if applicable, a Personal Identification Number may be required to be entered) to make a transaction pursuant to the Program. Valid government-issued identification must be presented and/or verbal verification must be completed to obtain a replacement Card.
  8. OLG reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to deny any application for Program membership. At the sole discretion of OLG, a Member’s membership in the Program may be revoked or cancelled at any time. In such circumstances, any accumulated Points will be forfeited in their entirety. A member’s Card must be returned at the time of revocation or cancellation of membership in the Program.
  9. OLG makes no representations or warranties, express or implied, with regard to the Card, including any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose title, non-infringement or that the Card will always be accepted. The Released Parties shall not be liable for any loss or damage, however caused, that is suffered by any person as a result of the use or misuse of a Card. In the event OLG is found liable, the Member shall only be entitled to recover actual and direct damages, not to exceed in the aggregate the monetary equivalent value of the last Cashback Points balance on the Member’s Card. The Released Parties shall have no liability for any incidental, indirect or consequential damages arising of or in any way connected with the Program, even if OLG has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
  10. Each Member who qualifies for the Program is entitled to only one (1) unique Card number, which is issued upon enrolment in the Program. OLG may limit the number of Cards or replacement Cards issued to any Member. All Cards are at all times the property of OLG.
  11. Each member may use only one (1) unique email address for the purposes of their WCR account. For greater clarity, Members may not share an identical email address with any other Member.
  12. The Released Parties are not responsible for lost, stolen or destroyed Cards. Lost, stolen or destroyed Cards must be reported to a WCR representative at a Site. OLG, in its sole discretion, may or may not replace lost, stolen or destroyed Cards.
  13. OLG reserves the right, in its sole discretion subject only to applicable law, to modify all or a portion of these Terms at any time without further notice and without incurring any liability or obligation. A Member’s continued access to and/or use of the Program after any such changes constitutes their acceptance of, and agreement to be legally bound by, these Terms as revised. It is each Member’s sole responsibility to regularly check to determine if there have been any changes to these Terms and to review such changes.
  14. Subject only to applicable law, Members accounts (and therefore their ability to participate in the Program) may be terminated at any time and without notice by OLG if the Member has been deemed by OLG, in its sole discretion, to: (i) violate these Terms; (ii) provide false or fictitious information to OLG; (iii) misuse or abuse (or attempt to misuse or abuse) the Program and/or Member privileges; (iv) commit (or attempt to commit) fraud; and/or (v) take any other action or actions deemed by OLG to be contrary to the Program, the letter and/or spirit of these Terms, or the interests of other Members. If a Member’s permission to participate in the Program is terminated by OLG for any reason, the agreement formed by the Member’s acceptance of these Terms will nevertheless continue to apply and be binding upon the Member in respect of the Member’s prior participation in the Program and anything relating to or arising from such participation. Upon termination, all Points associated with the Member’s account will be forfeited (subject only to applicable law). If Members are dissatisfied with the Program for any reason, then their sole and exclusive remedy is to redeem any existing Points in accordance with these Terms and discontinue participating in the Program.

Failure to provide such proof to the complete satisfaction of OLG within the timeline specified by OLG may result in disqualification from the Program. If it is discovered by OLG (using any evidence or other information made available to or otherwise discovered by OLG) that Members (or any person purporting to be a Member) have attempted to use multiple names, identities and/or any other means not expressly sanctioned by these Terms to participate in or disrupt this Program, then they may be disqualified from the Program in the sole discretion of OLG.
