Riviera Rewards is the players club for the Riviera. It is a tiered system, similar to other players clubs like Mlife and Total Rewards. Points are used to track comps and tier status. $2 slot coin-in gives you 1 Point. $4 video poker and keno coin-in gives you 1 Point.

Riviera Rewards has 3 tiers; Player, Gold and Platinum.

Cirque du Soleil’s Zarkana review

This is a review of the original Zarkana show at Aria. The show has been reworked. Please visit the Zarkana 2014 page for my review of the current show.


 

A few weeks ago I used a myVEGAS Reward to get a free ticket to Zarkana. Since the seat was a non-Premium myVEGAS Reward seat, it was in section 402 in the center of the balcony.  It did give a good vantage point to get the big picture, but it was surprisingly far from the stage.

The show follows Zark, the ringmaster, as he brings his haunted circus back to life.
