I'm a product of the golden 1990s; when casinos would give generous comps and discounts for signing up in the players club. So my habit in a new casino is to go to the desk, sign up, and wait for the little freeplay or gift, then get going on the machines/tables. About 7 years ago, I was in Tunica overnight, walking around and I ran around to do my walkthroughs and sign up; and immediately noticed, sign up for players club..no gifts, no nothing, just an atta-girl, and zilch. So I kinda quit doing it and just went to the machines after that. Fast forward to a few days ago, I had my shiny ACG coupons ready to go and headed into the Fremont on Main Street to sign up and get my freeplay. Nope. No soup for you.. I had already signed up with Boyd Casinos (whatever that means) back in Tunica. And they said I wasn't a "new player". Yes I am, I've never done the Fremont. Frowning Face. Was sort of sad because this was a big part of my plans in the trip. Anyhow..be forewarned, once you cross the lines and commit to the players club, its a commitment for life, so its best not to sign up comp free like I did in Tunica, the party is definately over on that.
