Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas, NV





Extra special bonus image is the fingerprint wiper that the Cosmopolitan gave me when I got a replacement card. I guess that if you don't want your fingerprints mingling with the player before or after you, you can wipe the machine down. I would like to stay at the Cosmopolitan someday. The rooms seem to be very nice but they are also very expensive. My motto for casino rooms is "If it's free, it's for me" so I guess I won't be visiting the Cosmopolitan much.

You forgot to blot out your name on that Cosmo card.

Flamingo Hilton, Las Vegas, NV




This is my father's card. I don't remember how I ended up in possession of it. I think this card predates the acquisition by Harrah's so I don't remember much about it. I was a Bellagio person back in those days. But I present to you the first in a brief series of retired player's club cards.

Well, it says "Park Place Entertainment", so it likely was issued some time between 1998, when Hilton spun off their casinos as Park Place, and when they changed the company name to Caesars Entertainment in 2003. Definitely earlier than the purchase by Harrah's in 2005.

The thing I wonder about is the combination of the Flamingo name on the front and the name Park Place Connection Card. Did they issue Park Place Cards with each of the casinos names on the front? Was a Flamingo card valid at Caesars Palace or one of the other casinos they owned? That was all before I started going to Las Vegas, so I don't know anything about those players clubs.

On a side note, what was that "Players' Club Gold Card" that Telly Savalas did the commercials for back in the '80s?

This is the other Park Place card that I found in my collection. Curiously enough it also belongs to my father but has a different account number than the Flamingo card. A mystery begs to be solved.
