Current slot club members who have earned at least 1,000 points in the past are eligible to sign up a friend and receive a $10 value when your friend earns his first 500 points. The original club member can then select $10 in free slot play, 4,000 additional club points, or a $10 food and beverage comp as a gift for signing up your friend.
