Please visit any of the kiosks located throughout the property to access balance information. Guests may also log into My World by clicking the link at the top of this page to check Momentum Dollar balance, Status Points, and to see available offers.
What are Momentum Dollars? Do they expire?
Momentum Dollars replace Player's Club points and are spendable at any of our shops or restaurants. These dollars are earned by gaming. One Momentum Dollar is equivalent to one dollar when using them for purchase in any of our shops or restaurants. Momentum Dollars will expire after 12 months of inactivity just as Player's Club points did previously. Also, your Player's Club points will transfer to your Momentum card as Momentum Dollars.
Are Momentum Dollars and benefits recognized at other Mohegan Sun properties?
Yes! Momentum Dollars can still be redeemed dollar for dollar at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut and Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City.
What are Status Points?
Status Points are earned through gaming during the qualifying period and determine which card level members fall into.
Are Status Points earned at the same rate throughout every card level?
Yes, Status Points, unlike Momentum Dollars, are earned at the same rate throughout every card level. However, at times, we may have promotions that will allow you to earn Status Points faster.
Do Status Points expire?
Status Points will be reset to zero at the end of each qualifying period, just as tier points were.

Can I roll my Choice Credits over from month to month? Do they expire?

What is a Personal Achievement Award and how do I earn it?
Personal Achievement Awards are based on each person's individual Status Point earnings per trip. Each guest can access an Individual Status Point Goal at any kiosk. When the guest plays up to that goal in one gaming day, they will be awarded Choice Credits as a Personal Achievement Award. The Personal Achievement Award will be available at any kiosk on property once the Status Point Goal is earned and will expire at the end of the month they were awarded.
What is a Momentum Achievement Award?
Momentum Achievement Awards are set Status Point levels that have an associated award attached to them. At each instance in which a set Status Point level is reached within a tier period (300, 600, 800, 1,000, etc…) guests will receive an award at each level. Awards will be available at the kiosk every time they hit one of the Status Point levels. Guests can earn multiple awards each day by hitting multiple Status Point levels.
