Did You Know That Casino Player Cards Come With Hole Punches in Various Locations?
We all love gambling when we're in Vegas and we certainly love being rewarded for our gambling by way of our membership in players clubs. However, while drinking our fifth cup of coffee this morning, we came across a sudden realization: Do you know that small hole punch included on most casino cards that can be used by most players to attach them to an optional lanyard provided by most casinos? Well, did you also know that those hole punches can be found in varying locations, sizes, and shapes? Well, we found out that they do.
Take, for example, this Mlife card. It has a hole punch placed in the bottom right hand corner of the card. From our experiences, this tends to be the standard across most major casino players card.
But look at this card from The D. In a way, it has a punch based in the standard right corner, but based on its orientation, it really appears to have a punch in the bottom left hand corner. We were impressed by this change in perspective.
Then there is this Grazie card that is something of a rarity. It has a punch located in the center of the card.
This 24 Karat Card from Golden Nugget takes a similar approach, but swaps the hole punch entirely for a much roomier oblong. This allows the gambler much more flexibility in attaching her lanyard to the card in an orientation of her choice. It's gambling-focused thinking like this that keeps us coming and playing at the Golden Nugget and in Downtown and in Atlantic City.
Ever the luxury resort, Wynn's Red Card foregoes the punch entirely.
And then there's the most rare of casino players cards. This Total Rewards card hole is not quite in the middle, yet not quite in the corner.
Those are a few of our favorite players club card punch hole locations, but we would also love to hear from you. What kind of hole placement have you noticed on players club cards? Tell us in the comments!
