Nevada Ballet Theatre Partners With PLAYSTUDIOS' PlayAWARDS Program

PLAYSTUDIOS, Inc., the creator of the playAWARDS loyalty platform and an award-winning developer of free-to-play mobile games that offer real-world rewards to players, announced their first-ever partnership with Nevada Ballet Theatre (NBT), the largest professional ballet company in the state.

NBT will be the newest offering in the Rewards Store, and arrives just in time for the holidays. Beginning December 7, players can redeem Loyalty Points for free and reduced price tickets, as well as to exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences. To kick off the holiday cheer, The Nutcracker will be the premiere production in which players can redeem their points at NBT.

"Nevada Ballet Theatre is a highlight of the Las Vegas cultural scene," said President of the Americas Region Rob Oseland of PLAYSTUDIOS. "It is a true honor to partner with the ballet, and to offer our players around the world the chance to learn more about this amazing company and to enjoy one of their exceptional productions."

The Nutcracker is choreographed by James Canfield, with enchanting music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky at the stunning 2,050-seat theater in Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center in Las Vegas. Celebrating its 50th anniversary, NBT is proud to partner with PLAYSTUDIOS and welcome their players to experience this magical journey filled with nimble fairies, waltzing flowers, and moonlit snow inside the Art Deco styled theater, heavily influenced by Nevada's Hoover Dam.

"We are thrilled to embark on a playful new adventure with PLAYSTUDIOS through their colorful and engaging playAWARDS program," said Nevada Ballet Theatre President and CEO, Beth Barbre. "By allowing players to use their Loyalty Points for a fun night at the ballet, this exciting partnership provides us the opportunity to increase our digital identity as we reach new patrons and supporters of the arts."

Players can start their holiday shopping for free by redeeming their points in the Rewards Store after earning points playing PLAYSTUDIOS' award-winning games, including MGM Slots Live, myVEGAS Slots, myVEGAS Bingo and more, via iOS, Android, and on Facebook in your browser. NBT joins the ranks of PLAYSTUDIOS' rewards partners, from MGM Resorts International to Wolfgang Puck, to Norwegian Cruise Line, and many more. In addition to The Nutcracker, upcoming performances by NBT include The Wizard of Oz and Blue Until June.
