Aliante Casino/Hotel is a full service resort located in North Las Vegas (Aliante Pkwy and I-215) featuring over 1,800 slot and video poker machines, 36 table games, 3 Poker Pro tables, a race and sportsbook, pool and spa, great dining choices plus a fast food court, movie theaters and more.
Player’s Club members earn points while playing at machines or tables that can be used for nearly all of the hotel’s many amenities. Point earning varies by activity.
• Earn one point for every $1 of coin-in on slots, video keno and video poker and one point for every $4 of coin-in on Optimum Play video poker. Earn 10 points for every $1 wager in bingo.
• Only points earned from playing video poker, video reels, reel slot and video keno are eligible for free slot play. (Bingo and pari-mutuel race points may not be redeemed for slot play.) Accounts with no activity (points earned or redeemed) for 13 months from the last date of activity are deemed “inactive” and all points earned in such accounts are subject to expiration.
• 1,000 points is equivalent to $1 in value with a $5 (5,000 point) required minimum per transaction to redeem points into slot play.
All points earned (except bingo and race) can be used for free slot play. There is no cashback. All points are redeemable for any food and beverage outlet, hotel and spa, pool, bingo and show tickets. Points earned for race and sports wagers are subject to a different set of rules, which may be obtained in the race and sportsbook. Points earned for race and sports wagers may not be combined with any points earned on slots, video keno, video poker, and bingo activity.
There are 5 tier levels: Premier, Elite, Celebrity, Headliner, and Legend. Acquiring a Players Club tier provides additional program offers and benefits. At top Legend level, benefits include VIP Parking, 30% off cash purchases in the Gift Shop, 2 free movie tickets per month, 2 free buffets per month, 50% buffet point discount up to 4, VIP line access, hotel discounts and more.
The tier program is evaluated every 6 months and earning periods are Jan. 1 to June 30 and July 1 to Dec. 31. A brochure is available at the club desk describing benefits for all tier levels. An added feature of the club is a daily point multiplier for all tiers. 3x points are awarded daily to Premier, Elite and Celebrity guests. Headliner and Legend guests receive 4x points daily. (Swipe at any kiosk to activate.)
New Club signings can win up to $1,000 in free slot play by playing one of the fun kiosk games. August promotions include the $1.2 Million Dollar Keys to Treasures drawings every Friday and Saturday at 7:15 p.m. A second chance drawing is on Saturday nights in August at 9:15 p.m. for an extra chance at a total prize pool of $2,250 in free slot play.
Guests that are age 50-plus enjoy added benefits every Monday and a free $2,500 slot tournament is held the second Monday of every month. This Thursday invited guests and others who earn 250 will receive a free Bowl Set.
