Members of The Club can earn great offers, comps, and discounts by always playing with their card. The Club recently launched Salute to Military Club Cards to all active duty or retired military personnel. Individuals with valid active duty, veteran or retired military identification can stop by the Club desk on the main casino level to pick up their cards, which provide members with a wealth of discounts on amenities throughout the resort.
