I go to Vegas once or twice a year. Each trip, I like to hop to many, many different casinos, and maintain a collection of player's club (slot cards) for each place I visit. I bring all active cards with me on each trip to use at each place I visit. I have a collection of over 40 I think, though I do divide them down by downtown, Strip, and off-Strip, to make carrying them with me easier depending on what part of Vegas I visit each day. My last trip was in October and I'm going again soon. On my last visit to The Gold Spike (downtown), I arrived very, very late (something like 4am) in the casino, somewhat inebriated... ...and the stupid machines wouldn't take my card. I kept trying and trying. Finally, I gave up and just played. A half hour later, there was no sign of a cocktail waitress (comped drinks are very important to me), so I hit cash out... had to wait for a hand pay (they don't have TITO - ticket in-ticket out - there at all!) for some small amount... got paid by a security guard... and went to the bar to play video poker. The bar VP wouldn't accept the card, either, and the bartender noticed this and told me that the Siegel Club cards were no longer being accepted, and that they were in the process of changing slot clubs, and he wasn't sure what I was expecting for comps, but he'd be happy to help. All I really wanted was free drinks, and he kept my Guinness pints filled, so I was happy. But my questions are... 1) Does anyone know if they have a new slot club? 2) Did they change owners? No more Siegel Group? 3) Any details on the new slot club, if it exists? 4) Someone please tell me that the machines will be TITO! Thanks for any replies.
