    My Trip Report

    Hi Everyone, making the drive out to Vegas from Houston. Drove about 750 miles today and made it to Las Cruces. My Mom...the Bingo Queen is my Co pilot. A few friends will fly in and out when we are there but looking forward to playing lots of bingo with her and tons of everything else. I love it all.... slots, video poker, craps, 3 card....really everything. I am a high school teacher and make this trip just about every summer to recharge my batteries for another school year. It works every time! Tomorrow only driving to Phoenix so we can play bingo at Gila River casino and get ready for Saturday! Will post a few pictures but really nothing impressive on our long boring drive. Good night everyone.

    Subscribed! I'm a mid-level roller and now Encore is my favorite place to stay but I often cab it over to Palace Station for a few games of Bingo! Good luck. Sounds like my kind of trip!

    Well we made it to Pheonix around 3 and hit the pool for a quick swim before heading over to Lone Butte Casino for bingo. It was fun and we got one away a lot but no wins. I am a soccer Coach and fanatic and got lucky to run into some guys from the Mexican National team in my hotel. Had a nice fun conversation, swapped phone numbers, and took pics. I think they were intrigued by a female high school Coach....funny! Anyway off to sleep so we can make it to Vegas tomorrow! Hope I can sleep. Good Night All.

    Made it to Vegas around 3. My favorite part is having " I feel lucky" as the city comes into view! Checked into Silver Sevens and then went to Westgate to watch the US soccer game. This is where this also happened.... 20160625_180241.jpg

    Ok so maybe it's not really my favorite but I do really enjoy it. Lol...we then went to Palace Station for bingo but had no luck. Then we went to Albertsons for some supplies for the room. After that I took my Mom to the room and went and played random slots for a couple hours. Here are a couple of my best hits. Very fun and successful day! 20160626_002441.jpg 20160626_002441.jpg 20160626_011834.jpg 20160626_011834.jpg

    Was on a hot steak last night.... so just now getting up! Yesterday we played in the Gold Coast Bingo event but had no wins there. The event included buffet tickets so we had dinner there and it was just OK....rated it a 3 out of 10. We watched the soccer game and so happy for Chile but still in shock Messi missed that OK. Next up was Boulder Station where Bingo Queen finally wins $200 on Double Action and I split a regular game. My Mom was ready at that point to come relax in the room so I went downstairs to play and that is when I hit a ROYAL FLUSH...third one in my life and quite a shocker! So on Today's list of things to do is go to Bank of America and make a deposit! Wohoo....Vegas Baby!

    Yeah GC's buffet wasn't that great the few times i had it. :(

    Great start with the VP! Love when quads when holding a different card come in! And awesome royal! Glad you were playing 50c instead of dimes then! Those dime paytables look a bit rough anyway. ;)

    Yeah the dimes were crazy. I put $5 in waiting for the elevator and area to clear out after bingo fully expecting to lose it in 2 minutes but lightning struck. Lol....
