As to if it is worth it to use the same card would depend on the Clubs tiers. If playing together will give you a bump to the next tier than it may be worth it. But if it will only bring you to the high end of the tier you may go from getting $25 in free-play each to now just one getting $25.

Now I will often play my wife's card if she is not w me in LV just to keep her level and points active. Never had a problem but never had the host run out w the big check and balloons when playing on her card.
I have a bewitched egg that I use to play VP with and I have net over 900k with it.

Playing with a spouse's card is a double-edged sword.

Sure, it counts as a visit so old points get an extention before expiring, but if you're only using it a little, it kills the player's total action per visit average.

Even worse is to use the spouse's card just to use the free-play.

While the inability to link couple's accounts, or even to partially link them, is one of my pet peeves, I'd say to just use your own card.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Thanks Rob and everyone else. I had a hunch that was the case, but as we all know hunches and gambling don't always mix well.

LOL. Hunches usually seem to work only when you don't play them!

So what actually happens if you get an IRS with someone else's card in the machine? The win is automatically posted in the computer to the person who's card is in the reader. Does this raise a flag? Do you have to make an excuse as to why someone else's card was in?

IRS forms only accompany hand pays. You're required to provide ID.

Depending on the casino's policy towards using a spouse's card, it may be no problem, to cancellation of all points earned that day, or cancellation of the player's club account, or cancellation of BOTH accounts.

If that win was played with the other player's free play, I think they'd be in thier rights to not pay.

But if paid, the winner provides ID and gets the IRS forms.
