    I've searched but didn't find much. Is this true? You need to lug around the book and rip them out when youre there? This is for Ellis Island btw, the only place I've heard doing this.

    The only place I've ever had an issue with it was at the Mirage buffet.

    Alright cool so I most likely will be fine, I thought it sounded dumb carrying around a book.

    Do you know how much in dollars 200 points is at Ellis Island? I know you can get a free entree if you rack up that many.

    If you are referring to the MRB from Las Vegas Advisor, yes you need to remove the coupon from the book in front of the casino employee. That is why the book is the size and shape it is, fits in pocket easily. If you are asking about the coupons from the American Casino guide, they can be loose and not in the book. There is a card in the book you should carry in case you are asked for it.

    As mentioned, the ACG book is not required, but be sure to have the ACG - ID card with you.
    Regarding the LVA - MRB ... it is an easy book to carry. However, if you have "loose" MRB coupons ... may I suggest 3 words ... clear - thin - glue.

    Ellis Island now requires most all of their coupons to be brought to the player's club for processing, so be prepared with player's card, and ID's, and coupons ready.

    Do they check Your players card number or just the card?

    I have doubles of EI coupons from trading but I'm guessing they're worthless for my GF without the discount card

    Most places do not ask to see the discount card--however, just when I think it is unimportant, some boothling will ask for it. If you do not sign the card--or if you have just scrawled your signature--send the GF up a few minutes after you with the card you used. Even if you have signed it, they very rarely ever turn it over to look at the signature. I don't remember EI ever asking for the ACG card in our experience.

    Thanks for the help, do you need to rip it out in front of them at hooters?

    I won't be going on a coupon run but I do want to check out the casino's, gamble a bit, then move on to the next one as I've never gambled or even been to vegas once in my short life.
