Fiesta Casinos is a division of Station Casinos, with two locations – one in Henderson and one on Rancho Drive, near Texas Station. Both properties incorporate the popular Boarding Pass slot club player’s card, also valid at all Wildfire Gaming properties.
While some Station Casinos promotions often include the Fiestas, both properties also offer their own unique plans monthly. And playing at Fiesta and Station will create a mailer from both entities!
Highlights of the Boarding Pass include one point per dollar on video poker, slots and video keno with the availability to immediately multiply points by three via swiping at any Rewards Kiosk.
There is a $1 cash back option for every 1,000 points earned; points can be redeemed at more than 50 restaurants, 10 hotels, five bowling centers, seven movie theaters, two spas or for hundreds of concerts, and a five tiered status level.
Points can be used at any Station, Fiesta or Wildfire Gaming property and earning points, the same as with all properties, is as follows:
Video poker, slots, video keno – $1 equals one 1 point; race and sports – $1 equals one 1 point; pari-mutuel play – $1 equals 20 points.
Points can be used for free slot play, free bingo play, free sports play, free meals, cash back, hotel stays, salons, bars, bowling, movies and more.
Tier status credits are earned as follows:
• Video Poker – 1 credit for $1;
• Slots – 3 credits for $1;
• Video Keno – 3 credits for $1;
• Race & Sports – 1 credit for $1;
• Pari-Mutuel – 10 credits for $1;
• Table Games – average bet times number of hours played earns credits.
The five tier levels are Preferred (up to 999 points), Gold (1,000-39,999), Platinum (40,000-99,999), President (100,000-299,999) and Chairman (300,000 and up). Each tier level offers increased benefits.
All levels offer buffet cash discounts and 25-50% off point discounts at the Platinum through Chairman levels. All levels also receive gift shop discounts of from 10-30% and 3x points daily (swipe activation required for Preferred and Gold levels).
At Chairman level you’ll be treated to a complimentary Princess cruise for two! Players earn their status in six-month earning periods, from January tovJune and July to December. You keep your status for six months.
During June, both Fiestas are participating in the company’s $2 Million Cowboy Roundup. On each Friday, Saturday and Sunday June 3-25, guests can play the Roundup at the Boarding Pass Rewards kiosk for a chance to win Garth Brooks concert tickets, up to $10,000 cash, free slot play, points, dining and more.
