Rainbow Club is a locals casino in downtown Henderson that was originally built to be a grocery store in the mid-1950’s. The property was first converted into a casino in 1967 and changed owners in 1984. Peppermill Casinos is the current owner of the property.
There is little to do at the Rainbow Club besides gambling as there do not offer any sort of entertainment beyond the one bar. There is also a single restaurant on the property.
Rainbow Club does not have any table games – nor does it have a sportsbook, bingo hall or keno lounge, which means it is entirely a slots casino. There are not even any video table games.
Of the 330 electronic gaming machines, about half of them are made up of video poker. The rest are slots, mostly of the penny variety.
Rainbow Club does have seven video poker games that return at least 99%. The highest return is 8/5 Super Aces (99.94%). Others games offering the highest return include Not-so-ugly-deuces (99.73%), Super Double Bonus (99.96%), Triple Double Bonus (99.58%), Jacks or Better (99.54%), Bonus Poker (99.17%) and Double Bonus Poker (99.11%). Each of these games are spread in quarter, half-dollar and dollar denominations with one, three and five-hand varieties.
There is also 9/6 Double Double Bonus game (98.98%) and these machines are tied to a progressive for both a royal flush and a sequential royal flush.
The remaining video poker at Rainbow Club is bland, with Spin Poker being the only remaining variant available.
The Rainbow Rewards Club is the players card for this casino. It has four tiers; Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Chairman. For every $1 wagered at slots, players receives 1 tier point and 1 comp point. Every 500 points equals $1 in comps at the restaurant.
Players that earn 5,000 points in a year will attain Gold status in the program. Being a gold player gives members an annual birthday gift and the ability to turn $3 in comps into $1 for gift cards at Target, Best Buy and Macy’s. The lowest gift card value is $75.
Players that earn 200,000 points in a year make it to Diamond. These players receive all of the same benefits as Gold, in addition to priority seating at Images Restaurant and an annual two-night trip to Peppermill Casino in Reno. Diamond players may convert $3 in comps into $1 in cash.
To reach the Chairman level requires players to earn 750,000 points in a year. These players can convert points into gift cards on a 2-1 cost basis. They may also convert points into cash at this same ratio.
Images Restaurant is the only dining option at Rainbow Club. It opens at 11 AM daily and closes at 9 PM on weeknights and 11 PM on weekends. The food, prices and service are pretty typical of cafés at other locals casino’s in Las Vegas.
While Images Restaurant is not open for breakfast hours, it does serve breakfast all day. The menu includes typical breakfast staples like meat and eggs, and omelets. The lunch menu consists of sandwiches and burgers.
The dinner menu is available from 3 PM to close. This menu includes a daily prime rib special for $10.50/$12.95, as well as fried chicken, steak, pasta, pork chops, salmon, shrimp and fish and chips.
Images Restaurant does not serve its menu to-go. All guests must eat in the restaurant. The exception is for Chairman players. This is one of that level’s perks in the Rainbow Rewards Club.
