    I have a friend that doesn't use a players club card when playing slots (he doesn't want to get any mail).

    Any downside if I ask him to use my card (so I can rack up points)?

    What will the casino do if he wins a big payoff? Will they void the payout? Will they penalize me?

    Thanks

    Common question.

    If you hit a handpay, just take the card out and put in your pocket at the same time you are fishing for your card and ID. I have done this often.

    Worse case, if every asked... "damn, must have grabbed the wrong card"

    Biggest downside for you would be ...if they play a lot less than you normally do. It can affect your offers in the future if they see a day played that had a much smaller coin in.

    Only an educated guess here.

    I can't think of any reason why they could be able to void a payout. Playing the game vs taking advantage of a players club are 2 very different things. One is governed by law, the other is just internal policies.

    Therefore I don't see how anything bad to him could happen.


    However, it is your account. They would have the right to do what they wish if they believed you were taking advantage of their players club. This could be anything from removing recently earned points to canceling the account. Do I think anything will happen? No


    I still wouldn't do this though unless they were a significantly bigger player and I might get some free rooms out of what I normally wouldn't get.

    Others have stated that if they play equal or lower than you, it may affect your comps. The points you earn from their play may not make up for that. I give my card to people regularly to keep points active. Rarely do I ask them to play more than $20 through the machine though.
