Coast Casinoshas announced the long-awaited arrival of Club Coast, the new slot club linking Barbary Coast, Gold Coast, The Orleans and Suncoast, combining them into one club. The new Club Coast raises the point value of 4,000 points from $10 to $12, which can be used as cash back or as comp value at any one of the four current Coast properties. Club members’ old points from all four casinos transfer over at the new higher rate. Every dollar won (unlike most other clubs that award points on dollars played) on all slot, video and poker games is worth one point. Coast also announced food and other unique specials to reward customers when paying with their points. As an initial offering, through July 31, Monday through Thursday, 18 Coast restaurants will discount members’ meals by matching points up to 50 percent.
Members also receive 50 percent off seven days a week at all Coast showrooms, Kid’s Tyme day-care centers and all Coast hotel rooms. Discounts of 10 percent off are available to club members at liquor stores, bowling pro shops and Prestige Travel. Plus Coast Century Theatres offers 10 percent off Monday through Thursday on movie tickets. To receive the discounts, club members must pay the entire purchase with their points.
