    My Trip Report

    Hi guys,

    Yes, shocker, I'm headed back to AC tomorrow. Long story short, but my office was a bit short on staff through the holidays so I was stuck working pretty much through it and consequently, no Vegas next week (probably a good idea anyway ha). HOWEVER, tomorrow is Saturday and I'm going back to my 2nd home- Harrah's Atlantic City (Borgata is still on my somewhat shit list for constantly losing, and I mean constantly hahaha).

    Driving up tomorrow, comp night hopefully in the Waterfront tower this time. I know a lot of VMB'ers are going to Vegas so I doubt I'll meet anyone but if you're around, give me a holler! Always down to meet new friends and as many of you who've met me here know, I probably look and act a lot different from someone who goes and gambles in excess on solo trips (just don't call me a country club Republican) lol.


    Anywayyyyyy, hopefully rolling in around 5pm'ish. Dinner at McCormick & Schmick, possibly some VP at one of the bars since I actually got my first quad last time (it was quarters, don't get too excited lol). Blackjack into excess. Funny thing too, and non-sequitur so my apologies ahead of time, I'm now dating a girl here whose from like 20 minutes from Atlantic City originally.

    A few dates in she goes, "You ever been to AC?". I responded with, "Yeah, just a few times". She retorted with "I hear people can get free rooms who gamble there".

    My response, "Perhaps, let's see what happens". This will be fun, but first... On to tomorrow! Stay tuned, I will make this semi-live/live if there's a request.

    Good Luck. Thinking of going to AC this week as well after reading all these trip reports. I live an Hour north of there( a little to close at times).

    Good luck! We're flying home from vegas in an hour so tomorrow will be full of sleep, laundry, and either detox or another day of boozing.

    The Mexican restaurant at harrahs is a party scene for your demographic so check out the bar up there before committing to Mccormicks.

    Thanks tring! Need a bit of advice later whenever you're free regarding pay tables at VP (I.e. Hints of what constitutes a good and bad one).

    Also, since I'm driving from dc does anyone want pics of my trip there as well? I figure probably not haha but since I always stop a few times I'm entirely down to if there's sufficient want! :licklips:

    LandryBalla9: I'll be in AC tomorrow morning, Sun, early. I have free play at the Borg. I'll be arriving about 5am. Around 7am I'll be heading over to Harrah's. I play vp and craps...sometimes BJ if I'm with a friend and want to talk but I'm generally a loner when gambling. As far as vp tables you should look for, you can search 2 very good sites: www.vpfree2.com will tell you what the best games are at each resort. You can search by game, denomination or resort. The other site is www.wizardofodds.com which is a wealth of gaming information.

    Thanks Stu! I'll be there until around probably. 11am tomorrow so give me a holler if you're around and if Im not wicked hungover I'll meet up with ya haha. I play BJ and VP, may do craps tonight if I'm with people because I have no idea how to play and it's more fun playing a game like that with folks who have an idea how to play haha

    Best place for food I Dock's. It is 2blocks south of caesar's . Service is great and so is the food. Hubby and I shared a order of baby lamb chops-$36 for 9 chops. Love it there. Strip steak is delish and huge.

    Haha...just answered in another thread earlier http://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/showthread.php?126517-Understading-VP. Reading the first part of my bartop sticky http://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/showthread.php?111193-A-Video-Poker-Primer-with-Bartop-Listings-and-Better-Nickel-Options! will explain a lot of the basics. And once you read that, use www.vpfree2.com like smerrian mentioned.

    The listings for Harrah's AC are here:
    http://www.vpfree2.com/casino/harrahs-atlantic-city

    Unfortunately most of the "full pay" games there offer reduced tier credits there. But that's a huge sign that it's a good payback game!
