The Venetian and the soon-to-open Palazzo have created a players club named Club Grazie. Gold Tier members receive one point for every $1 coin-in on slots and $3 coin-in on video poker -- and higher tiers earn more points for the same coin-in. Every 2,500 points can be redeemed for either $15 in slot credits, a $10 Club Grazie Gift Card or $5 in cashback. (The Club Grazie gift card can only be used at Venetian and Palazzo outlets -- so we strongly recommend that you go with the slot credits.) Along with regular points, members also receive Grazie points that can be used (only) at the casinos' annual year-end Grazie Gift Extravaganza. Anyone with unredeemed point balances from the old Venetian Players Club has until Dec. 31, 2008, to cash in their points.
Need some stocking stuffers? Amigo Club members showing their card today at Fiesta Henderson will receive a holiday bear and mug. On Dec. 21, the casino will give away holiday potholders.
