Poker Palace Casino has been a North Las Vegas local’s favorite for over 40 years. They take pride in offering friendly customer service, low table game minimums, excellent low-priced food, fun and entertainment, and old-school “neighborly” hospitality.
The casino offers both smoking and non-smoking rooms for its guests. The Gold Club player’s reward program is a no-nonsense, one card system that treats both slot and video poker players the same: $1 coin-in equals 3 points on any machine; 1,000 points equals $1 in cash (.30% return) with a minimum cash out amount of $5. Blackjack players also earn points based on wagers and time played.
New players signing up for the Gold Club receive a free wheel spin for a chance to win up to $100, among other prizes. Once becoming an established club member, players begin receiving monthly mailed offers based on prior play that may include free slot play, meal and merchandise comps, gifts and much more. They understand the importance of player loyalty and strive to “make sure you come back.”
