Golden Nugget Laughlin
|New look of the 24 Karat Club Card at the Golden Nugget Laughlin|

Most of the machines have a sign attached to them like the one below to remind players that the old card will not work in the slot machine they are at.
There were a couple banks of video poker/keno machines that had a sign telling people to use their old card on those machines. These were machines that still dispensed coins instead of ticket in-ticket out. Most likely these have a limited shelf life left on the Casino floor.
If you are new or have never had a players card, you will be issued a new version card. Plus when you first sign up you get a spin on the slot machine behind the players club desk (for a chance to win up to $1,000 in free slot play*). We were lucky enough to actually hit that years ago when we first signed up at the Golden Nugget Laughlin. Plus even more luckily, walk out with over $1100 in winnings from the free play. We did notice a odd thing when we got our replacement cards. Now new player sign ups do not actually get to spin or hit the spin button on the machine. The clerk at the Players Club turns a key and the spin that results is what you get. Seems it would be more fun to let the customer spin it themselves, but that's just our thinking.
*Free Slot Play can be $5, $10, $100 to $1,000 -- or as many people winning a guaranteed minimum prize of a stainless steel Golden Nugget travel mug.
The 24 Karat Club membership is free. Eventually it is said that the Golden Nugget players card system will be linked with other Golden Nugget properties.
