Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino offers a unique blend of amenities and excitement with a 75,000 square-foot casino featuring all your favorite table games, hottest slots on the market, incredible restaurants, endless entertainment, more than 225,000 square feet of meeting space and the world’s largest race and sports SuperBook, which is home to Nevada’s largest wagering system and more than 4,488 square feet of state-of-the-art HD video screens.
Westgate Las Vegas provides a range of culinary adventures with eight restaurants, including Benihana, the award-winning Edge Steakhouse and Fresco Italiano. The property features entertainment options in the International Theater and the Westgate Cabaret and has recently undergone a more than $150 million renovation, including the addition of 300 timeshare villas, the all-new International Bar, a fully renovated pool deck, 1,200 remodeled Signature Rooms and the luxurious Serenity Spa.
As of March 1, the Westgate launched WOW Rewards, a state-of-the-art, tiered customer loyalty program that rewards guests for playing their favorite slots, table games, placing a sports bet at the world-famous SuperBook as well as making retail purchases or dining.
WOW Rewards membership is free and as a member, guests will earn Reward Points everywhere on the property, which can be used for free slot play or to make purchases. Points are awarded as follows:
• $5 coin-in on reel and video machines equals one Reward Point, equals one Tier Credit;
• $10 coin-in on video poker machines equals one Reward Point, equals one Tier Credit;
• $1 restaurants, retail and hotel equals one Reward Point, equals one Tier Credit.
• Table games, sports wagers, live poker and pari-mutuel race wagers earn Rewards and Tier Credits based on game and/or wager type, average bet and amount of time played.
• 100 Reward Points equal $1 in free slot play or comps.
There are four tier levels with WOW. Comprised of Silver (0-1,199), Gold (2,000 tier credits annually), Platinum (10,000 tier credits annually) and Diamond (25,000 tier credits annually). Guests can redeem WOW Rewards points at any of Westgate’s restaurants, bars, retail outlets, the fitness center, pool and Serenity Spa, as well as for free slot play and resort rooms simply by presenting the WOW Rewards card prior to making a bet or purchase.
As a way of saying thank you, all active and retired members of the United States military will automatically begin in the Gold tier and receive benefits such as priority line access. All tier levels are rated from Feb. 1 through Jan. 31 and remain active for one full year following the year tier status is achieved. Each level has increasing benefits. The top two tier levels receive free golf, discounted or free shows, room upgrades, free spa admission and much more.
Former club members who have been active within the past 14 months have had their points and comp accounts converted into the new club.
New guests signing up for WOW Rewards can earn up to $100 in gaming reimbursement. Westgate will reimburse losses on carded casino play up to $100 in free gaming.
The offer is primarily designed for locals who can return within 30 days to redeem the rebate offers, which are mailed within 30 days and include valid dates for each rebate. In addition, all new members will get to spin a wheel on their machine for a chance to win up to $10,000 with a minimum prize of $5 in free slot play.
In April, watch for slot tournaments that will be available to play directly on machines (based on points earned.)
And of course, Westgate is famous for sports! Kick off the college hoops action on giant HD screens inside the International Theater in a smoke-free environment. Guests can choose from more than 1,500 comfortable seats and enjoy satellite betting stations, as well as food and drink specials.
Former NBA star and NCAA college basketball legend Darrell “Dunkenstein” Griffith and former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman will kick off the festivities on Thursday, March 15 and will be available for autographs and photos throughout the morning.
Doors for Hoops Central inside the International Theater will open at 8:30 a.m. each day, with games kicking off at 9 a.m. General seating is first come, first served; reserved seating is available for $25 a day, which includes one free beer.
