Boyd Rewards participants can earn casino credit, free or discounted hotel stays, discounts on food and retail purchases, discounted flights and cruise packages, B Memorable experiences, annual gifts and more.

Whenever you play any casino games or bet in the FanDuel Sportsbook, you accumulate Boyd Rewards Points and Tier Credits. While you can redeem Boyd Points for various rewards and perks, the amount of Tier Credits you accumulate during the calendar year determines your tier status. There are five tiers in the program:

  • Ruby
  • Sapphire
  • Emerald
  • Onyx
  • Titanium

As you proceed up through the tiers, you become eligible for increased rewards. You also are able to accumulate Boyd Rewards Points at a faster clip as you move up the tiers.

One great benefit of the Boyd Rewards program is the fact that you can earn rewards at any participating property. At present, there are 26 casinos in 10 different states participating in the program, including several casinos in Midwest states and in Las Vegas. Along with Belterra Casino, the Blue Chip Casino Hotel Spa is the only other retail casino in Indiana participating in the Boyd Rewards program.

Belterra Casino Resort & Spa history

After Indiana legalized riverboat casinos in 1993, Hollywood Park Inc. received a license to open a casino on the Ohio River in Switzerland County. The riverboat had been built in Alabama and was traveling up the Mississippi River in July 2000 when it struck a barge and was badly damaged; passengers had to be rescued.

After that setback, repairs were made, and the Belterra made it to dock in Florence where the casino opened on Oct. 27, 2000. By then Hollywood Park Inc. had changed its name to Pinnacle Entertainment, and Pinnacle retained ownership of the casino until 2016 when it sold the real estate to Gaming and Leisure Properties, which then leased it back to Pinnacle.

In 2018, Boyd Gaming Corporation acquired Belterra Casino along with three other casinos in the region from Pinnacle. Gaming and Leisure Properties continued as the owner of those properties’ real estate assets, henceforth leasing the property to Boyd.
