Gold Club members earn points every time they play slots and table games. Points can be used for cash back, free slot play, hotel rooms, at bars and restaurants, the gift shop, and more. Established players can earn free food and beverages, comped rooms at the resort, invitations to VIP dinners plus exclusive slot tournaments and special events.
All new members start out at the Club Card level and after achieving 200 points graduate to Gold Card. It takes $3-$5 to earn a point, based on the type of machine and denomination being played. Most penny slots earn a point for $3 coin-in while better paying video poker machines may require $5 to earn a point. Eighty points are equal to $1 in value and the minimum cash back amount is $5 (400 points).
As a new club member you can also receive a variety of gifts and logo merchandise based on your point earnings for your first day of play on the new card. A third level tier known as Exclusive is made possible after earning 200,000 points within a year’s time. At this level players can receive up to $100 a month in free cash and up to $50 monthly in free food offers besides regular point earnings and benefits.
Club 55 is for guests age 55 and over. Every Tuesday they can receive a coupon book after earning 25 points and a drawing ticket to win cash. The casino is hosting “Winning Weekends” throughout April. $500 drawings will be held every hour from noon to 3 p.m. and again from 6 to 9 p.m. every Friday and Saturday through April 30. Earn 25 points in slots or video poker and receive one lucky entry.
Pick up your entry daily at the Gold Club on Fridays and Saturdays, limited to one per person per day. If a winner is present by 10 p.m. on the day drawn, they win $500 cash. If the winner is not present, the consolation prize is $200 free slot play. Winners’ names are posted and the drawing barrel is emptied weekly.
From now through April 15, earn 500 points for a complimentary ticket to Un-Corked Wine Tasting on Saturday, April 16. On April 20, 21, 27 and 28, earn 200 points for a bottle of Ramsay Wine. (Points must be earned that day.) See the Gold Club booth for details on all promotions.
