The basics of B Connected by Boyd Gaming
The B Connected membership is free to anyone who is 21 years or older and holding a valid ID.
These credits don’t have any cash value, but they allow you to advance to a higher tier with increased benefits for the rest of this year and next. The higher the tier, the better the benefits, including free travel to some great vacation destinations.
Earning B Connected tier credits
Members earn tier credits, according to the following schedule:
- Reels, video reels and keno play earn one tier credit for every $5 coin-in.
- Video poker and multi-games earn based on the game, denomination and time played.
- Table games earn based on the game, average bet and time played.
Members also earn B Connected points by gambling at Boyd Gaming casinos once earning their first 750 tier credits. You can use these points for dining, shopping, accommodations or slot play.
Earning B Connected points
Members earn B Connected points according to the following schedule:

Redeeming B Connected points

The value varies by property for hotel stays.
B Connected offers all members exclusive room discounts at all Boyd Gaming properties. Members with qualified play are entitled to an automatic discount when booking rooms online through BConnectedOnline.com. This discount is over and above discounted public rates.
Using Boyd Gaming’s B Connected card
Tier credits and B Connected points add up quickly when you use your card to gamble at Boyd Gaming casino properties across the US.
Take a typical three-night trip to Las Vegas. You can use your B Connected card to get a discount on your hotel stay even if you’ve never used the card before. Of course, those who have gambled with the card get even more significant discounts.
Gamble exclusively at an off-the-Strip Boyd Gaming property like the Orleans Hotel & Casino, and you’ll start earning tier credits immediately. Play $3,750 in slots and keno, and you’ll quickly earn the 750 tier credits needed to move up to B Connected’s Sapphire tier.
Then you’ll start earning B Connected points.
After that, spend another $1,500 playing video poker and $1,500 on slots, and you’ll earn 2,250 B Connected Points you can use to get a couple of dollars off dining, shopping, staying or playing. Plus, you’ll be well on your way to earning Emerald status, where the free travel benefits begin.
