I've been meaning to post this since before the holidays, enjoy. December 9th I had a trip to So. Cal set for business. I decided to fly SW thru McCarran on the way. My meetings were near Temecula & San Diego, so I decided to try flying into Ontario. As luck would have it, my itinerary gave me a 3:55 layover in Vegas. Luckily my 6am flight out of RDU was uneventful and early into LAS arriving at 7:45am PT. I quickly got my bag, and cabbed it to Monte Carlo, arriving there around 8:15. I dropped my bags, and headed over for a Bloody Mary at the Bar in front of the Sports Book. I dropped $20 into the .25 DDB machine, and after 3 pulls I hit a full house and 3 OAK. I got my money out + around $10. Then, I headed over to the 3 Card table. After 30 minutes or so playing heads up most of the time against the dealer, I cashed in up $80. I walked around the tables for awhile, and unsurprisingly, they were pretty dead that early in the AM at Monte Carlo. I decided to walk over to the Aria. On the way, I decided to drop $20 into the Beetlejuice slot at MC. I played for 5 minutes, hit a bonus for $35. So, now w/ less than 45 minutes on the floor, I'm up $115. I proceeded to Aria. Aria was a little more lively at 9am, aided by the Rodeo being in town. I found the only $10 BJ and bought in for $150. I played for an hour or so, and ended up cashing up $240. I decided not to give it back on the Craps table, and opted to grab my bag and head back to McCarran. Minus $35 in cab fare, I ended up over $300 in my 2.5 hours in Vegas!
