    Been to Vegas a few times (strip stays) but this time we're opting to stay at The D because of our last trip to DT for FSE. My GF mostly plays poker and I do a bit of everything from sports betting to slots.

    Since I like to roam around and try out every casino, are the player cards different for every casino downtown or is it similar to the strip where multiple casinos use the same cards?

    Thanks in advance. We'll be there a few days for the 4th of July!

    Also since its the 4th, should we expect fireworks everywhere or are there certain locations with the best firework show?

    Downtown most of the casinos have their own players clubs.

    Because you are staying there you should definitely get a card at The D, however most of the others aren't really worth the time - I'd sign up for them if the line at the booth is really small just to see if they are giving anything away, but I wouldn't worry about not having a card at a certain place or refusing to gamble somewhere until I have their card.

    As for July 4th: you will have to wait a little longer to find out if anything is going on or not. When July 4th is on the weekend there are fireworks at some of the big resorts on The Strip... when its mid week its iffy if they'll do anything or not.

    I you're going to gamble and you think you might be interested in staying downtown again, it's worth getting a player's card. Room comps are fairly easy at some of the downtown properties. Plaza and LVC are the same club, MSS, Cal and Fremont are all Boyd (part of BConnected, along with Suncoast, Sam's Town, Orleans and Gold Coast). Binions and Four Queens have different clubs, but play at Binions can get you rooms at Four Queens.

    I think this trip will determine if we're full converts but from our first day trip to DT, we realized that our money went a lot further there. Not to mention the close proximity of everything and the entire scene was a lot more enjoyable for us.

    I maintain that you should get a player's card and use it whenever you can, especially downtown where comps for even small play might earn meals and free or discounted rooms. It's not uncommon to receive room offers (at a later date) just for signing up. So, unless you really can't stand waiting a few minutes, getting a card may be one of the best deals you're likely to get!

    All cards

    MSS, Fremont, and the California all use the B-Connected card. Binons, El Cortez, The "D", Four Queens, Plaza all have thier own cards. I have found that for minimal play The "D" is the most liberal with comps and future offers.
