Las Vegas-based Golden Gaming, Inc. last week announced the introduction of a new player rewards program for its 39 locations in Nevada. "Golden Jackpot" will roll out to all Golden Tavern Group Las Vegas locations, which include Sierra Gold, PT’s Golds, PT’s Places and PT’s Pubs, with Northern Nevada locations to follow.

Golden Jackpot raises the bar by offering patrons the chance to win instant bonus cash just by being logged in. The system links logged-in club members at each individual tavern location to offer bonus cash each time a player hits one of three winning hands.

The winning player and each logged-in member at that tavern location will receive up to $20 in instant bonus cash.

Golden Jackpot winning hands include a $20 payout for a royal flush, $10 for weekly selected 4-of-a-kinds, and $5 for selected non-poker jackpots.

Winning becomes faster and easier as each logged-in Golden Reward player will receive instant bonus cash electronically, uploaded to his or her machine.

"Golden Jackpot is the next step in a continued evolution of advancing technology and creating an exciting player environment at all Golden Tavern Group locations," said Steve Arcana, vice president of operations. "During recent testing at several locations, our players greatly enjoyed the opportunity of ”˜winning’ as a result of another player’s jackpot."

There are 39 Golden Tavern Group locations, which feature state-of-the-art gaming machines maintained by Golden Gaming’s slot route division, Golden Route Operations (GRO).

GRO, the third largest slot route operator in Nevada, maintains more than 2,500 machines in 175 locations.
