Golden Nugget Adds Tiers To 24K Players Club

February 25, 2015 at 3:52 PM | by | Comments (4)

It hasn’t even been a year since the Golden Nuggetimproved their 24K players club. Well, the Nugget is at it again. This time the updates to its players club are more noticable.

The 24K Club used to be one single tier for everyone, but now has four tiers. Tiers start with 24 Karat and move up to Premier, Chairman and the top level of Elite which is earned once you reach 100,000 tier points. You can only earn points when gambling like most locals casinos. The benefits are also similar to other casino players clubs aimed at locals. (You can see the full list, here).

On Monday, Golden Nugget ended its $5 Downtown Destination Fee in exchange for a $22.60 tax-inclusive resort fee. But, if you don't want to pay, you don't have to. Of course, there's a string attached.

At Golden Nugget, Checking Out The Renovated Gold Tower Rooms

Where: 129 East Fremont Street [map], 89101
November 26, 2014 at 3:52 PM | by | Comments (11)

Five years after the Golden Nugget added the Rush Tower to their downtown room offerings, the hotel has turned its attention to upgrading some of its other accommodations. The mid-tier Gold Tower recently received a renovation that would make its big brother, Rush, proud. Our 2012 stay in a Gold room was found to be similar in layout to entry-level Carson rooms, but more than cozy enough.

Gold Tower renovations have discarded the floral curtain patterns and introduced a Rush-like, chocolate-toned scheme to distinguish itself itself even more from the Carson rooms. The new Gold rooms still feature upgraded pillow-top mattresses, feather down comforters, upgraded linens, goose down pillows and 42-inch plasma TVs. Gone are two gold corner chairs, replaced by an L-shaped chocolate leather couch, with white footstool.

There was no refrigerator in our room, but a familiar Keurig machine was on the desk with a four-pack of K-cups available to purchase for $10. Two 16.9-ounce water bottles were also available at $4 a piece.

So You Want The Scoop On Getting Drink Tickets With Your Sports Wagers

October 21, 2014 at 12:12 PM | by | Comments (12)

It seems like every time we post an article about what's happening in the sportsbook, the number one question, regardless of the topic, is "Can I get drink tickets there?" After posting last week’s article about getting seats are the Venetian sportsbook on Facebook,  the question about where someone can get drink tickets with their wagers was raised again by VC reader Sarah B.

The short answer is that policies are rarely the same -- even in the same casino at the same time. There are no longer hard and fast rules about drink tickets at any sportsbooks besides CG Technology (Venetian, Cosmopolitan, etc.) In the past, you could expect a drink ticket with your sports bets. This was a time when casinos didn't mind if you sat around watching a game and not spending money. Things have changed over the years and drink tickets are no longer the norm when placing your bets.

In Downtown Vegas, Your Ticket To Ride Comes With More Fine Print

July 9, 2014 at 7:24 PM | by | Comments (7)

Downtown Vegas may not be completely on the resort fee side (at least not yet), but that's not to say its casinos aren't exploring new ways to bring in more revenue.

Back in February, we told you how the free ride was over for some downtown lots and garages. El Cortez, Main Street Station and The California came under our microscope for adding strings to all those go-to spots. Fees were enacted that could be waived with play or by being a players club member, depending on the property. Last month, Binion's put the brakes on the usage of its garage by restricting validation to folks who either gamble or dine there.

At Golden Nugget, Vic & Anthony's Wants You To Take Another Look

Where: 129 Fremont Street [map], 89101
July 3, 2014 at 6:17 PM | by | Comments (15)

Downtown's changing dining scene has been a roller coaster of big names and unique concepts hanging their shingle in the revamped retro spaces that define the area. One thing we haven't seen is a bigwig of old Vegas try and reposition themselves to rope in new attention... (wait for it)... until now.

Vic & Anthony's at Golden Nugget has been doing the classic Vegas steakhouse thing for a while, but their Executive Chef Eric Stetcher is now serving up some rather interesting dishes.

Golden Nugget is changing their 24 Karat players club and bringing it into the 21st century. The players club isn't quite being overhauled as much as it's being infused with today's technology.
