Premier Player Membership Rules
Must be 18 years of age or older to participate.
Membership is limited to one account and one card per person. Members may not share accounts or share, loan, or distribute membership cards. Combining wagering activity will result in membership termination and forfeiture of all points. Membership cards, accounts and points are non-transferable and may be revoked, repossessed, modified or cancelled at any time at the sole discretion of the Maryland Jockey Club (“MJC”).
Cards may not be left with a mutuel clerk at any time.
It is the Member’s responsibility to properly insert the membership card into the terminal when placing a wager at a self-service terminal. When using a self-service terminal, you must insert a winning ticket or cash voucher prior to inserting your Premier Player card and placing the wager. Failure to insert the card correctly will result in non-accumulation of points and Members will not benefit from play. Points will not be issued for any claims involving wagers from printed tickets or faulty card readers.
Inactivity (no wagering associated with your account or membership card) for a 6 month period will result in deletion of your account and forfeiture of any and all accrued points.
Employees of the Maryland Jockey Club or its affiliates that have access to the Tote room and can effect the outcome of a race are not eligible to participate.
Management of MJC will review any disputes regarding this program. Management decisions are final and binding.
Premier Player points have no cash value. Rewards may change and certain prizes may be offered on a limited basis and for a limited time. Rewards are based on availability. Once points are redeemed, redemption is considered final and irrevocable.
Members are responsible for all taxes incurred or payable in connection with Premier Player points and rewards.
Negative pool wagers or wagers deemed by MJC to manipulate or attempt to manipulate odds will not be rewarded and points will be revoked.
Valid photo identification and/or a valid driver’s license are required to redeem rewards.
If a card is lost or stolen more than three times, the fourth card and any additional cards will be subject to a replacement fee of $5.00. Inoperable cards are replaced free of charge.
The Premier Player Club is only available at authorized MJC locations. Only Maryland Thoroughbred wagers placed at Laurel and Pimlico will earn points throughout the month.
