    My Trip Report

    Long time Lurker, figured I'd give this a shot...

    Sunday:

    Flight was very bumpy, must've been a rookie pilot lol

    Cabbed it to Aria was checked in and in the room within 15 minutes, tried the $20 trick the gentleman quickly handed me back my $20 and said they were at capacity due to a BMW convention this week.

    Walked over to Planet Hollywood and grabbed some essentials at Walgreens. At this point we were starving and went over to Javiers for some food and drinks. Great restaurant never disappoints.

    Gambled our way to Bellagio and watched the end of the game, took GS -7 and the over lost both... ended the night early as had been up since 5am est time

    Day -300

    Monday:

    Woke up early and felt like getting an early gambling start, hit a penny lord of the rings bonus for $130 then proceeded to hit 2 quads on dbd vp, was up around $225 when I headed to wake up my girlfriend. Headed finally to the new coffee place at Monte Carlo really good coffee, best on the strip for sure. Walked down to mgm played a bunch of machines and vp lost a $100

    We got hungry and went to the buffet at Aria, got some of the worst digestion ever from this place. Tried to nap it off but eventually had to go walk it off. Gonna get ready in a few to head to Wynn to see LA Reve and grab something to eat maybe sw steak.

    Quick question I am at roughly $4,600 coin in so far and can keep up this play per day for the next 2 days. Is it worth the time to ask for any food and beverage on the backside or maybe resort fees? Never have asked for anything in comps as I never played that much, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Just a little update...

    Last night at the Wynn hit a wheel of fortune quarter machine for $250 on the wheel then turned around and hit quad 2s for $200 not a bad start to the night, I've never played so the idea was try and show some sort of coin in under a players cads to hopefully get some initial offers or discount rooms. Made it to 900 or so points kind of hard to put a finger on coin-in as they give different points for slots and vp.

    Ate dinner at Red 8 which was fantastic not pricey at all and reminded me of a fresher version of pf changs will definitely go back for sure

    La Reve was amazing truly is a great show, not a bad seat in the arena but for reference we sat in section E row D or the 4th row. Really enjoyed the show might be my new favorite behind Ka, going to see Love tonight in the mlife vip section we'll see what that's all about.

    Gambled our way back down the strip, all CET props were dead the linq I think I heard crickets, people walking the strip are so annoying I almost grabbed a cab at the linq back to aria just not to deal with the same people.

    Made the walk over to Bellagio up a little then down a little basically lost about $120 give or take.

    Tuesday:

    Up early this morning just hit my 3rd quad since 6am but only up around $75 this morning as they werelate all high cards, was dealt 4 to the royal triple play prog. Machine talk about sweating it out!

    Awesome start!

    Le Reve is one of my favorites as well! The great thing about it is they change the acts fairly regularly (every 8 months or so) so there is something new every year. I still think the first couple years of the show were the best.

    Had breakfast at the small place in mandarin oriental 3rd floor, was really good. Had french toast was probably the best I've ever had.

    Walked back into Aria quickly hit rocketman bonus for $180 on Elton John penny slots, then hit 4 aces on triple bonus vp up $350 in a matter of 20 minutes. Gave $50 back chasing bonus on 25c PowerBar machine

    Hit the pool at aria, very overcast day not much going on, have golden state -2 and over 194. Can't imagine the Warriors shoot that bad again. Gonna head to Caesars to grab a bite ato the forum shops and then we have tickets for love at the mirage 7pm unfortunately right in the middle of the damn game, show should be letting out with around 7 to go in the 4th quarter. After the game it'll be the usual casino crawl back down to Aria, really gonna try not to go to the bellagio in all of my trips I've never hit anything there lol

    Well haven't hit a sports bet since I've been here...

    Ate dinner last night at carmines in forum shops, was really good tons of food for the 2 of us, had tickets for love at 7pm wasn't all that impressed with the show. I did think the props and costumes wereally spectacular but for sure my favorite cirque show is ka, I'm actually debating on going to see it again tonight.

    Gambling at the mirage is always an adventure started out down $200 on vp but then something happened that I've never expereinced. I hit a quad I think 5s I was planning on cashing out and taking the $70 hand but on the very next hand I hit 4aces!! Went from $140 down to up $130 on 2 hands so I cashed out and found a triple play 25c machine and what do you know I hit 4 aces again! Then 4 to the straight flush bam it hits, so I'm feeling hot at this point but I get the $100 up to $260 and go watch the show.

    In this process I did get 4 to the royal on initial hand of triple play but didn't get that final card, always chasing that same royal flush oh well maybe today!

    Congrats on the hot streak. I'm glad someone can win at the mirage cause I sure can't lol. Question: if you get dealt a royal on progressive triple play machine do you get paid that progressive amount on all 3 hands?

    Nice work worth the back to back quads ozzy!! The only time i can recall doing that was at McCarran of all places. Lol

    Most triple play machines that are progressives have separate progressives for each line. And many of them give you a bigger jackpot than all three summed together for a dealt royal.

    Images from macker69's Nov. 2014 TR:

    See that a dealt royal pays a LOT more in the "All" column.

    He was also fortunate to hit a royal on line C.
