Las Vegas – Oct. 15, 2014 – This year, the award-winning JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort and Rampart Casino commemorates its 15th anniversary of offering guests the finest service and top-tier luxury with its “15 Years of Fun” campaign.

The “15 Years of Fun” initiative furthers customer satisfaction and ensures an unparalleled experience by bringing renovations, upgrades and added entertainment to the popular off-Strip destination.
The anniversary excitement launched in September 2013 with updates to the Race & Sports Book. The popular sports betting location was enhanced with larger TVs, new carpet, a satellite betting station and Nevada Sports Books online sports betting app. In January, updates continued with the installation of new carpet inside the casino and Palms Tower corridors as well as the addition of hundreds of the industry’s latest slot machines such as Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Superman, Buffalo, Let’s Make A Deal, among others.
Adding to the casino’s diverse entertainment lineup, Bonkerz Comedy Club in Edge Lounge debuted in February. Since opening, the venue has hosted numerous sold-out acts such as NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” finalist Grandma Lee. Bonkerz offers guests a full night of laughter, fully stocked bar and the nation’s best comedy each Thursday.
Enhancing the hotel’s group and event options, the exquisite Valencia Ballroom completed renovations in February with updated wall coverings and carpeting. The 12,320-square-foot circular ballroom has an expansive terrace for up to 1,000 people, and provides a stunning option for events with a 30-foot vaulted ceiling, Mediterranean décor, floor-to-ceiling arched windows and scenic outdoor space with spectacular views of Red Rock Canyon and the Las Vegas Strip.
The resort upgraded its luxurious poolside cabanas, which debuted in March. Enhancements include new furniture, flat-screen TVs, telephone, refrigerator, bottled water and a safe for valuables as well as classic amenities like food and beverage service from Waterside Café, guest towels, personal attendants and more. Great for parties, family gatherings and lounging, the cabanas boast a stunning view of the resort’s breathtaking pool, grounds and waterfalls.
One of the most anticipated attractions on property, Rampart Casino’s Bingo Room opened its doors in April. Each day, it offers six one-hour sessions of bingo. The 300-seat gaming facility is complete with top-of-the-line technology by FortuNet, Inc. BingoStar®, complimentary drink service and a non-smoking section. The casino continued its enhancements in September by expanding its Summerlin Room Lounge to include a full buffet and an upgraded bar. The Summerlin Room is a secluded area for Summerlin and Summerlin Elite-level players only, featuring a fully-stocked bar, high-limit gaming, cocktail service and more.
The property’s restaurants also received a refresh throughout the year. In May, the popular Tepanyaki destination Shizen added delectable flair to its menu including gluten and carbohydrate free noodle bowls and all-you-can-eat Sushi Sundays. Rampart Buffet and Promenade Café updated their décor in September, offering a more aesthetically pleasing dining experience. Additionally, the Promenade Café added more breakfast items and a new array of home-style entrées, such as chicken and waffles and macaroni and cheese. J.C. Wooloughan’s Irish Pub transformed into J.C. Irish Sports Pub. The pub has catered to its sports fanatics by adding new TVs, a special sports menu and a gaming section to the bar in October.
Engineered for the utmost comfort and productivity, the resort’s Spa Tower updates began in June. The enhancements include a refreshed Spa Tower lobby; new bedding and headboards; improved artwork, paint and wallpaper; updated luxury restrooms complete with rainfall showers and Jacuzzis; and new carpet. The Palms Tower hotel rooms are slated to complete renovations in 2015.
In addition to renovations and enhanced entertainment options this year, Rampart Casino has added exciting gaming promotions for its players including the previous $100,000 Cars ‘n’ Cash Giveaway in April where they gave away a Toyota and $75,000 Cruisin’ for a Cadillac & Cash Giveaway in September where one lucky winner went home with a brand new Cadillac.
