When new players first walk into a casino, they are usually amazed by the bright lights and ringing bells. It can be tempting to just grab a seat at an interesting looking slot machine, sit down and start playing. If that’s your strategy, it might be time to change your way of doing things.
The first thing you should do before you select your casino games is go to the desk marked “Players Club”. There, the clerk will ask for basic information such as your name, address and in most cases, that you select a 4 digit pin number. A plastic card will be issued to you and by using this card each time you play, you are accumulating points.
After looking at the casino games and then deciding to play a slot machine, first insert your Players Card into the machine. The machine will then add points to your Players Card account based on the amount of time you spend playing.
As a member of the Players Club, you will begin to receive literature by mail from the casino offering free meals, free play and in some cases, even free rooms at their hotel in exchange for your playing time.
With a deal like that, how can you afford to pass it up?
