Rainbow Club Casino a comfortable gaming spot

Mar 15, 2016 3:01 AM

The Rainbow Club & Casino, located at 122 South Water Street in Henderson, combines a comfortable gaming atmosphere, favorite slots and a value-priced restaurant to create a true local hotspot. It opened its doors in 1984 after being purchased by Peppermill Casinos Inc., a privately-held casino company with six additional casinos.

The Rainbow philosophy is: “Providing outstanding value and service to its customers, exceptional product offerings, respect and loyalty to its employees, and commitment to the community.”

The Rewards Club is in its first year of operation providing guests with a variety of benefits spanning four tier levels. You’ll receive a Gold level card when you sign up. As you continue to play throughout the year, your tier level will grow, ($1 coin-in equals one tier level point) which means more exclusive benefits and rewards for you to enjoy.

Every $1 coin-in earns one point and every 500 points is equal to $1 in comp value. Currently, points and comps can only be used at the Images Restaurant and not toward free play or cash back. However, after earning 5,000 points and achieving Platinum level (or above), players can exchange comps for gift cards quarterly at the rate of $3 comps for $1 in gift card value for stores like Target, Macy’s, and Best Buy.

At the top two tier levels, Diamond (500,000 points) and Chairman (2,500,000 points), players can exchange comp dollars for cash at 3/1 and 2/1 respectively. Cash and gift card exchanges must be redeemed for an amount between $75 and $1,500 comps per quarter.

Tier season ends Dec. 31 and restarts Jan. 1. Players at Platinum level and above also receive an annual birthday gift and free trip to the Peppermill Casino Resort in Reno. Established players also receive mailers with additional offers.

Images Restaurant is open daily from 6 a.m. until 11 p.m. featuring delicious breakfast, lunch and daily dinner specials, including BBQ baby back ribs, steak and shrimp, pot roast, and prime rib; many for under $9.
