Should (can?) I get new players cards with a new address?

    Taking my first trip in 2+ years, after I've moved. I'm wondering if I can submit my new drivers license for cards and maybe score some freebie match/slot play, or whatever cheap swag, as a "new" member. Or will they look up my name and see that my pictures (old vs. new license) look quite similar and I'm still 6'-2", 195, with green eyes, and tell me "nice try"?
    Boyd (MSS in particular) was the only outfit that was still sending me snail mailers to my old address, and when I went to BConnected online they magically had my new address there. But I've long forgotten my MLife and Total Rewards numbers/names/passwords, so I can't check to see if they might have automatically updated somehow as well.

    I doubt the system does a photo match, but they do some other matching - l like SS#.

    You MIGHT get away with it. The bigger trick - finding a casino with any decent sign up bonus to make it even worth you while.

    They'll have your info on file if you were there before. MLife had all of my addresses on file from the last 10 years.

    I agree with the other posters. If you are already on the system all they will do is update your address. Unless you somehow changed your name (if you got married and changed your name) then maybe you can get away with being a "new" member but as long as your name is the same as before there is little chance they would consider you a "new" signup. I have the old flamingo card from 20 years ago and when I tried to use it the machine didn't accept it and said to go to the player's club to get a new card. They still had my records on file even though I haven't gambled there in over a decade, more like 15 years.

    And as nostresshere mentioned, doubtful there is really any good signup bonuses anyway.

    they'll see your name and birth date are the same.

    i actually had two different mlife accounts bc when i went to get a card printed up the person mistakenly though the last letter of my last name was a "d" and not an "o".
    it took me a while to even realize the difference in the spelling of my last name on the card since the d and o on the mlife card are almost identical and i had all of my comp points merged bw the 2 accounts.

    Like others said above, most likely you can't pretend to be a new member.

    However, I never changed my name or address or anything, but I had two different cards
    each in Mlife, BConnected, and Wynn.
    So, I was a new member when I got the second card.
    I just want to say, being a new member not necessarily a good thing.
