The D players clubGolden Gate and The D are located in downtown Las Vegas.  Both are owned by Derek and Greg Stevens.  While the two casinos are under the same ownership, they use separate players clubs.  The concept of each is similar.  The comps earned may be used at either property.  The cash back earn rate is higher at Golden Gate.  This is due to the lower quality video poker at Golden Gate when compared to The D.

The players club at The D is called Club D.  Golden Gate calls their loyalty program Club 1906.

Every slot and video poker machine has a crevice above the monitor.  This is where the players card goes.  The machine will welcome the player to the machine by name when it is accepted.  Table game players should hand the card to the dealer or pit boss.
