Casinos offer fun and excitement for Arizona’s seniors

BY Samantha Gulick

The sounds. The lights. The excitement. That awaits guests who visit Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino, which prides itself on offering a fun and safe environment.

And with news of the recent merger with Eldorado Resorts, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino’s loyal guests who are members of the Caesars Rewards program have more options.

“Our Caesars Rewards guests have long known the value of being a part of this program and take full advantage of the benefits offered here at Harrah’s Ak-Chin,” says Michael Kintner, senior vice president and general manager. “The expanded offerings mean our guests have even more options when it comes to hotels, entertainment and dining.”

Membership is free and members earn Reward Credits when they play, dine, shop or stay at any of the Caesars Rewards resorts and casinos. Benefits include free or discounted hotel stays, offers for dining, shopping, shows and presale access for select shows. Reward Credits can also be exchanged for free slot play.

Caesars Rewards partners with other nationally recognized brands to give members more opportunities to earn or redeem Reward Credits and take advantage of exclusive benefits. These partners include relationships with cruise companies, hotels and resorts and floral companies.

Individuals can also now book hotel reservations and use their Reward Credits at Caesars Entertainment properties around the world.

Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino has been a favorite entertainment destination for seniors for more than 25 years. In addition to safe and secure luxurious hotel accommodations, guests can be assured that they can also safely enjoy the newest slot machines, table games and bingo.

“Because we value our guests and employees, we have implemented strict health and safety protocols so that you can safely enjoy the award-winning entertainment experience here at Harrah’s Ak-Chin,” Kintner adds.

Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino has implemented health and safety measures, including social distancing, for the well-being of all casino guests, employees and visitors to the property.

Slot machines, table games and bingo have been redesigned to ensure social distancing (between machines and players).

The safety crew is out and about throughout the casino floor, regularly sanitizing all guest areas. And there is plenty of hand sanitizer as well

Staff is required to wear a mask, and they require guests to do so as well. Upon arrival at the casino, guests will be asked to have their temperature taken, adding an additional level of health precautions for all guests.

Restaurants such as Agave’s, Oak & Fork, Chop, Block & Brew, Copper Cactus and Dunkin’ are open, although staff has reduced seating capacities to allow for appropriate social distancing. The buffet remains closed at this time.

Here are few other precautions guests can take to protect others:

• Be sure to wash your hands often and carry hand sanitizer.

• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and be sure to toss that tissue in the trash.

• Always remember to wear a face covering around others.

• Be sure to keep at least 6 feet between yourself and others.
