    My Trip Report

    So I've just got everything confirmed for this weekend...original plan was to go to Harrahs Lake Tahoe this weekend and Earn 2500tc...but the plans have changed:

    Editor note: I made all my days as individual posts.

    Cliff note: Went to Vegas, took $300 to gamble, got down to FOUR DOLLARS, hit $60 to start the comeback, then a $200 nickle royal...THEN ANOTHER, then lost that $200 back, then hit a $210 payout on the wayout.

    Here's the royals and Kris's big quad:
    Dealt Quad Kings x3
    Second Royal
    First Royal

    Hope you have a blast!!! I fly in on Monday and it seems to be a bit of a tame weekend, at least if prices for the weekend are any indication of the demand and they usually are.

    Friday 11/8:
    well, we got a later start than we'd of liked to...got out of Modesto at 1:30...so now it's over the hill and through the dale to the promised land (lol, really through the valley of the fruitpicker, and across the desert of emptyness).
    Well holy hell and hot shit! We made it to GC at exactly 9pm! Got checked in and got a King room on the 3rd floor...dunno if it's a "premium" or not, but it's suitable for us..
    After we dropped our stuff off in the room, we went down to TGIFridays to use up $10 worth of daily food...we split a Jack Daniels burger.
    after our small bite to eat, we went to work on the 9/6 JoB STP machines...or rather they went to work on us...dropped a QUICK $100, then popped in another and dropped it too! Chasing now...grr...put in $100 more and changed machines...luckily we got a few quads in short order and got it up to $200...but then we slipped back to $150...damnit! Finally got a DECENT dealt FH with a 2x, for 270 quarters, and hit cash the fuggg out.
    So, going hitting the hay now, at midnight down $100.
    Goodnight Vegas

    Saturday 11/9:
    Saturday is here.. We were up at 8:30, after an OK sleep...lot of door slamming and even a knock at our door..got cleaned up and had the buffet at GC, charged to the room (to use up the other $10 dining credit). After breakfast I downloaded the other $15 slot play that came with my room offer and promptly turned it into $50 on the STP. Cool...so now I'm only down $50 total.
    Headed out of GC, in search of SouthPoints STP...
    At SouthPoint, we quickly dropped that $50 profit and GTFO!
    Next up was GVR, with $20 each at the sportsbar..got a nice ShockTop draught, and lost our 20's (but scored some free holiday plates, lol)
    Were on the 515 as I type this, headed for MSS, and FSE...see you there!
    Jeeesus! So far we haven't won a fuckin nickle, and not even last long enough for a cocktail! Either that or their being shady as hell with drinks...lost $20 each at MSS without a drink...came over here to Cal and lost a $20 each and barely got a waitress, lol, and we actually ran out of money, but fuck it we're waiting for our drinks!
    Went over to Fremont....actually played a WHILE on our final 20's...but alas, "I'm broke bitch!"
    Strangely enough, Kris had some singles in her pocket (tip money for the non-existent waitresses) so I piddled around in a 5c STP at Fremont...managed to get it up to $25...then it went KABOOM, down to $2, and I thought all was lost..holding a lone ACE with a 3x multiplier..managed to get the rest for 1200 nickles!!
    Annnnnd were back!
    Walked over to the D to play at the Vue Bar...it was loaded up, so we found a coin-dropper 25c 8/5 bonus poker and Kris played a 20, nothing...I played my $20...holding my own...then WHAM! quad 4's for $50 pure profit!
    So, now, with exactly $100, we are eating dinner at Chicago Brewpub at 4Queens..

    What a day so far...drop $250, to have a miracle come back to $100, w00t!
    So, we ate at the Chicago Brewpub, bill came to $35 (dropped $40), $33 freeplay loaded up (they don't give you back the tax!) plus we got 2 match plays and 2 free "aces", score!!
    Fwiw, all the "coupons" that 4Queens gives away are WORTHLESS!! All they have is 6:5 BJ for less than $25! Garbage! Off of our freeplay rebate, we sucked out $25, and from ALL our coupons, we managed to LOSE $20! Freaking dealer got a BJ then I doubled down 10 vs 5, and got 13, dealer ended up with 19!!
    So, licking our wounds, we went back over to The Cal, and put $20 each in the Diamond Head Seq Royal machines by the door, and managed to grind out $40 profit, so now, flush with $100 total cash, we walked over to MSS. Decided to play $20 each at a bank of vP close to BoarsHead...we played for about an hour; I managed to hit quad 3's for $50, and Kris hit two insignificant quads for $32 each...got down $60 and called it a play...
    Went over and played $20 each in some 5c STP..Kris lost hers quick-status...but I managed to last a while on mine...hitting 7 quads, and getting up to $50...when low and behold, I hold KQTd and up pops AJd on the bottom-line for a $200 ROYAL FLUSH!!! SWEEET!!
    So we promptly cash the fuuuug out and head out with $260 in our pocket.

    Back here at GC for a little 25c STP, then an early bedtime...
    Woo Woo!!!
    Well, back at GC, we played some 9/6 JoB 3play STP...put in the $60 and immediately did great...ran it up to $200, and played about 30 minutes...ultimately we cashed out with $100
    Lol, so ALL DAY playing, ALL AROUND, we're stone cold EVEN! (LOL, thanks to ORIGINALLY the 3x nickle quad aces, then the nickle royal!)

    So, we crashed in the room for about an hour, and then took a stroll around the casino...I played a 1c Sparticus machine and I did pretty well...got it up to $120 and cashed it out. Then Kris picked a slot she wanted to play (she picked a 1c Haunted House one) and we played on it for about 30 /minutes, ultimately cashing out with $120....then like crack to a fiend, I had to play my 25c STP!
    Was up and down, but in the end we managed to get down to $50 and cash out.
    Decided we wanted a small bite to eat before sleep (last meal was at 4Queens at 5pm) so we went over to the Subway here in GC and got a footlong Melt (paid with Boyd Points) and brought it back to the room to eat and call it a night...now being midnight.
    What a helluva day! Funny...we started out EXACTLY the same as when we finished ($250, lol) and I racked up about $35 in Boyd Comps (21k points)

    What are the paytables on nickel STP downtown? 7/5 bonus at least? Sounds like a crazy day. Hit a quarter royal now!

    Looks like an action packed trip so far. Did you get any football action in? I know you like those ML longshots, good luck.

    Sunday 11/10:
    So what if I'm up at 5:30am? lol, just can't sleep anymore..its VEGAS!
    I think I'm gonna sneak out right now while Kris is sleeping and fool around in the casino.
    Well, somebitch! I played 5c 5-play STP until about 8:30, and actually won $20, got Kris a cinnamon roll from JavaVegas, and gave her the $20 and decided to just play my $50 off that I started with...hellfire if I didn't hit ANOTHER nickle royal! AGAIN in diamonds!

    So now, I'm UP $200, W00t!!
    Lol, Kris told me to cash out NOW, but fuck...i still have my $50! Lol
    So, I played down to $200 (value of the royal) and we went and had the Sunday brunch buffet at GC at about 10am (paid using points)
    Afterwards, we checked out and drove up to Mt. Charleston (Kris has never been). She thought it was crazy, that 30 minutes from the strip, we could be in rugged snow mountains.
    On our way back in, we stopped off at Circus Circus to check it out (Kris had never been, and I hadn't been in there since 98)
    I just had to stop off at the Aces&Eights machines and play! Dropped $30 playing 50c and walked on.
    The new rollercoaster looks promising, just hope they have it done by Christmas so I can ride it when I'm here next!
    From there, we went over and valet'd at Forum Shops.
    We walked in and got a couple half-yards at Fat Tuesday for $11 each (not too bad really) and proceeded to meander through Ceasers and Bellagio and CityCenter.
    Hit up Cosmo to do their $100 loss rebate again...played $ DDB, this time we lost our $100 each, QUIICK!
    Went back and got our freeplay loaded up and was able to suck out $80 each...so the "chance" only cost us $20 each...not too bad.
    Watched the Panthers win by freakin ONE POINT! (Knew I shoulda bet that game!)
    Came back and got the car and now we're over here at MSS eating the buffet ($20 dining credit offer) and were gonna head outta here and go check in Orleans to stay the night over there. (another $10 dining credit)
    But not before a little supertimesPAY!!

    Well, shit, I dropped $70 on STP at MSS, but we played for probably an hour or so (I earned 1000 points, I know that)
    Then we decided to drive our happy asses over here to Orleans....got checked in a 2queen on the 15th floor facing the southvalley.
    Walked down stairs and immediately found some 5c 5-play STP and went to work with my last $50...funny, it actually lasted 3 hours (another 1500 points)...even had it up to my original $100 bankroll, but just decided to GO for it, as it was our last play session.
    Funny too, as Kris (she was the one playing tonight) literally got FIFTY four-royals! One time she even got DEALT a four-royal...no dice!! (and it was 5-play even!!)
    So, in the end, all we lost was our original $100 (and I won't even say we LOST, as we paid $11 each for our FatTuesday drink and then lost $25 each on the Cosmo promo)
    So, good trip and good night LAS VEGAS!

    The morning (read:afternoon) well be hitting the road for home.

    Two Royals in a weekend? How many hands do you think you saw, they rack up fast with 5-play. I'm jealous as I'm on almost 14 months now. But then again, I spend more time on here than actually gambling and rarely play more than 1-line. :eek:

    Monday 11/11:
    Well, we ended up sleeping in until 11, got around and went down and had the buffet here at Orleans ($10 in points + used my $10 dining credit)
    Afterwards, I wanted to play for a minute to try and make $40 to fill the tank to get home...
    This time, we decided to play DDB stp, rather than the BP, we had been playing...
    Put in $100 and Kris went to work (I let her play because I've already hit two royals, so it's her turn now)
    She got a couple quads (even a small card quad). The she was dealt trip fours, but I told her count to five before you hit the draw button because everytime she was dealt trips she wouldn't connect, but on the very next hand the first card out was the needed card. So she counted to five and hit draw and connected with quad 4s with a kicker for 800 nickles. We were both laughing hysterically. The very next hand up pops a 3x multiplier followed by dealt quad kings for a total of 3750 nickles. We immediately hit cash the fuck out...we called it a trip, got the car out of valet and said YO HOME TO BEL AIR!

    So total for the trip was $100 profit after all food drink and gambling for 3 days

    Just wondering about your comment on playing the Cosmo $100 rebate "again." I thought that was a one-time only thing?

    Last time we did it, we won $250 each, so we technically DIDNT do the rebate...
