    My Trip Report

    I have not done a Vegas trip report since last July's Solo trip. I've been to Vegas 3 times since then and let's just say a change in luck is in order. I hope you all will send the strrrrrrongest good vibes ya got and I will do my level best to entertain ya the best I can.

    Here is a look at the cash on hand that will be heading to sin city.

    I arrive in Vegas around noon tomorrow. My first two nights will be spent at Aria. The offer? Two nights comped with $100 resort credit and $100 free play. The offer stems from a few drop in plays from last year and more specifically the 12+ hours of play where my average bet was 2 to 3 hundred dollars with about an hour of 600 dollar a hand. That epic run started with a $500 buy in and just trying to pass time. Free bet BJ was the game. Here was the end result of the first session that day.

    I am in the process of moving my action on the strip. I've been a loyal CET player for years, but there are MGM properties that I just absolutely love and want to give em more of my action. I will also do yet another drop in play at Cosmo. I love the casino and atmosphere, but literally get ZERO offers which I find strange. I'm going to check and see if they have my email and address correct while I'm there. My coin in and table average of $100 ish dollars should warrant more than zero I would think. That pretty much sums up the Strip portion of my trip.

    The last 5 nights of my trip will be spent downtown at the Golden Nugget. The offer? 5 nights comped in the Rush Tower. $600 in free plays, Limo and food. I've had several hosts over my gambling career and Cathy at the Nugget is just awesome at what she does. I will be playing pretty much exclusively at the Nugget, but I will make my way over to Golden Gate a few times...both for breakfast and some Free bet BJ.

    The To Do List:

    1.) Start every session Slow and green chipping. Especially at Aria. ($75 dollar a hand and up shift or down shift from that mark)

    2.) Have a yellow chip session.

    3.) Turn 10k to 100k

    4.) Avoid disastrous sessions. Cut losses and run on both a no paying slots and bad juju tables. I saw a clicker method for slots the other day on a trip report that I really liked. I'm going to implement something similar in order to avoid dumping a grand into a losing slot.

    5.) Meet a VMBer or two at the tables or while throwing the bones.

    6.) Eat pizza and a lot of it.....I know, I know, I know. Go to Vegas and eat PIZZA!?!?! Yep...I'm a pizza nut and Vegas has some great offerings from Secret Pizza to 550 to Pizza Rock and I will try Pop Up pizza downtown as well.

    7.) Make several NFL futures bets. My Giants over 8.5 came up short last year.....I'm still scratching my head over how I lost that bet. The G-men invented ways to lose games all year.

    8.) Watch my Tribe play at the Nugget sportsbook and place a wager or 3 on them.

    9.) Get my first ever handy on a slot machine.

    10.) Post more than 50 pics.

    That's a solid enough "To Do List"


    Vegas I'm coming home.

    Have a great trip, and best of luck to you. I suspect the GN has a good supply of $5000 wrappers to help you organize the cash you're going to bring home.

    I was just in my office, looking for something, and decided to rub my bag of wristbands for luck on your behalf. I'm pretty sure you should play the Megabucks now. ;)
