I thought it would be interesting to see the verbiage the lawyers for each casino company thought should be on the card. Contrast and compare.

They allow the casino to track what a lousy gambler you are by monitoring how much money you dump into a slot machine. If you waste enough money, the casino may grant you a free hotel room between Monday and Thursday.

Empire City Casino, Yonkers, NY




This one is a short story. I went to check out the new "casino" in Yonkers. I got a card. I played the games and lost. I left and only go back on Kentucky Derby day. I get a lot of useless offers in the mail for Karaoke night and stuff like that. They don't have a hotel, it's merely a racino and a bad one at that. They don't have table games, only class 2 video lottery terminals. Yonkers is the reason I won't go into the other new "racino" at Aqueduct.

Wynn/Encore, Las Vegas, NV




I was really looking forward to getting this card. I used to go to the Bellagio when Steve Wynn ran the joint and I really liked it. Then with the takeover my MGM, the place went flat. When I heard that Steve Wynn had bought the Desert Inn, I had high hopes of another gorgeous casino resort. Then came the Wynn! I arranged a trip to Las Vegas as close to the opening date of the Wynn as I could get. I got there, got my player's club card and promptly lost my gambling budget in his signature slot machine. The bathrooms are marble and granite. I say that you can always tell the quality of a place by the materials that they put in the toilet.

This card is a replacement card. My original card is in pretty rough shape. On it, the "Wynn" signature is nearly all peeled off and you can hardly read the name and card number. I never get any offers from Wynn and I think that's a little disappointing.

Just to put a coda on the Empire City post, I found the original player's club card hidden away where I would never find it. What a terrible design and speaking of terrible, that's a clue to tomorrow's card.
