Once enabled, the CDS will display a button in the upper right inviting the customer to login and a link to create an account if they don’t already have one. Once customers sign in, we will display their loyalty points. Customers may tap their names to perform minor edits to their accounts.

If customers elect to create a new account, they will input their first and last name, as well as their phone number, email address and/or birthdate as required by the settings. If Automatic Loyalty Generation is supported, Revel will create a new loyalty account for the customer in accordance with the Automatic Loyalty Generation Settings.
