    My Trip Report

    I,ve been meaning to write this since I came back on 24th january, but work and home improvements have delayed it, better late than never.

    This was one of my solo trips from 15-23rd jan, coming from the UK, my trips are usually 7 days plus due to flight cost etc. I got a great price on my flight £573 return on Virgin atlantic. Strange thing happened, and should have clocked it, but missed it at the time, about 1 week before I,m due to leave, get a "courtesy call" from VA to ask if I want to pay for upgraded seats, no chance, I am sat in isle seat on upper deck, anything else we can do for you then?, well yes, upgrade me to upper class with chauffeur drive for free if you like....... no chance.
    Gets to LGW, the virgin desks are almost deserted, nice I thinks!! checks in and get my boarding pass, and the lady tells me that all the seating on upper deck will not be used due to light load, cant remember the exact figure but there were only 220 something passengers on the flight, no probs should get empty seat beside me.
    The whole of LGW was quiet, breezed through security in 5 mins, got to the No 1 lounge ( I have a priority pass from work) orders a peroni and a bacon roll, followed by several more peroni beers.
    Gets on the plane and sure enough, it is less than 1/2 full, but we have to sit in our assigned seats till after take off, no probs, after take off, I bag a row of 3 seats to myself, which I keep for the whole flight, manage to get a few hours of sleep on the 10 hours 40 min flight.

    Get through immigration, it took a while there only seemed to be 6 officers in the booths, and 2 international flights had landed just before us, people in line were moaning about how long it was taking, I am of the mind that if you cannot personally do anything about a situation, then STFU and get on with it, we are all in the same boat, could be worse, you could be somewhere other than Vegas!

    Get out to the cab line, had to walk almost to the other end of T3 as the cab stand beside arrivals was closed for some reason, get the cab to LVH where I have 4 nights comp and $100 in free play and some F&B credit, check in at VIP, in the room 5 mins after arriving at LVH.
    Room is in north tower, renovated room, perfect for my needs, comfy bed, fridge, safe, and it,s free......nice.
    Unpack, take a shower and head down to the casino, it was a little quiet, did,nt seem to be much table action going on, headed down to the 8th pole bar at the sports book, bar tender remembers me from my last visit from my belvedere raspberry and diet coke order (nice on a comp, dont know what it would cost as a call drink??) I play DDB for a couple of hours, hit a couple of 4OAK but no premiums, left the bar about $80 light.
    Had something to eat at the burger brasserie, not bad, but not memorable, grabbed some water from the gift shop and turned in for the night, the 8 hour time difference from the UK was taking its toll, it was about 9 pm vegas time, so 5 am UK time.

    Wakes up at 05:30 after a solid (drunken??) sleep, watched the news on TV for 1/2 hour, then have the 3S,s head off down to the casino around 7 am and have the buffet breakfast, not bad, nothing fancy but does the job.
    Come out from the buffet and head over to the bank of progressive VP, I had noticed the night before that the 25c progressive was at $1700ish, it was now at $1900, sat down and lost $100 rapidly, never hit any quads,so got up and left after about 30 mins. Played various slots and VP the rest of the morning, no big wins or losses.

    Went to pick up my car from dollar at Swenson St, I deliberately don't rent a car on my 1st day in town as I,m usually a little the worse for wear after the long haul flight, and cant be bothered with the hassle of the rental place at the airport. I cab it to Swenson, in and out in less than 10 mins, I have a Nissan Maxima, I usually get a crown vic or Chrysler 300, so was eager to see what the Nissan was like, actually pretty nippy, not a bad car.
    Headed to the premium outlets south and bought some clothes, had something to eat at a pizza place ( Joes NY pizza) next to 5 guys burger place, nice pizza. had a drive around and stopped by walmart to pick up beer,water,etc for the room, head back to LVH around 7 pm.
    Back down to the 8th pole, the progressive on DDB at the bar is $1230ish, I order my usual and play some, hit a few 4OAK, inc A+ kicker but never hit the royal.

    The rest of my time at LVH was pretty uneventful except, I was sat at the casino bar playing some VP and having a nightcap, gets approached by big colored hooker who asks me if she can "do anything for me", I asks what "anything" costs (purely out of curiosity!!), " I usually get $400 for the hour" I politely declined and she moved on to her next prey.

    On my last day at LVH I hit a royal on a DDB bank near the entrance. I checked out at VIP and my host Toby had all my RFB comped, but I had to pay the $3 day for the room safe which I thought was a little strange?

    I picked up the car from the valet and headed to the Orleans,valeted the car and I was in my room on the 17th floor in less then 10 mins. I was at the orleans on a 3 night comp with a VP tournament offer.

    Unpacked and headed down to the casino to register for the event, picked up my pack and headed to the poker room, played a little $1-2 NL for a couple of hours, bought in for $200, cashed out with $350, only one memorable hand. I made a set of jacks on the turn and felted a guy who made a set of 10,s on the river, a $200+ pot.
    Played various VP and slots, burned $200 at roulette, ate at Big Al,s had some chowder and a Po boy sandwich, nice food.
    Next morning I ate breakfast at the buffet, nothing to shout about, but does the job, a bargain for $5.99 if you have a Bconnected card. Played my 1st 2 sessions of VP in the tournament, amazing how it gets your heart pumping when you are against the clock, never hit much, and 1 guy had hit a royal in the 1st session so it was an uphill struggle.
    decided to up the ante a little and play some $1 slots, hit a few $200, 400 wins, then played some blazing 7,s, hit the 3 7,s and the mixed 7,s a couple of times, then BAM, B7,B7,B7 for my 1st hand pay for $1105. I tip $20.

    I then move on to play some $1 dueces bonus, played a hundred dollars through with no decent wins then sticks in another hundy and on the first spin..... BAM

    My 2nd handpay in less than an hour, they seemed to take much longer to come to the machine rhan they did for the blazing 7,s win. 2 people turn up after about 5 mins, I give them my ID and my US ITIN number, they return after about 10 mins (seemed like 30 mins...) and pay me my $4000, I tip $40 and also my cocktail waitress an extra $20.

    I am pumped, I head up to the room to get the cash in the safe and head back down to the casino with about $1000. I play various VP and was hitting a few 4OAK including this
    4s with kicker.jpg

    It is now around 2:30 am and I am drunk, so head to the room, except I have to pass the Orleans high lomit room on the way there soooooo I drop in and played some $2 DDB and hit this, BAM...

    My 3rd handpay tonight, life is good.....

    About 3 plays later hit 4 Q,s for another $500. life is better than good.....

    Went to bed after that, got up next day, did my final VP tourney session with no RF, just missed the cut for a pay off, never mind, it was fun anyway and would defo play in another one. I hit one more RF at 25c level at the orleans, but never had my phone with me, so no pic, but it was on the same machine that I hit the $4k jackpot on, unbelievable, I was kicking myself for not playing dollars.... DOH!

    I checked out next day, with nothing to pay, headed to airport, and off home.

    I have tried to recall all this from memory, so there may be a few mistakes. I did venture down to the strip a couple of times, seen Big Elvis, played a little poker and VP, but really nothing to get excited about.

    Hope you all enjoy this TR, as I have enjoyed many on this board.

    Not much better than some VP porn! I am envious of your luck, congrats! Funny how you hit multiple royals at the Orleans.... I never hit just one there... if I hit one, I hit two or even three, every time. Just wish it happened every trip!

    Thanks for taking the time to post...

    Glad everyone enjoyed it,

    I have another trip comong up from 24-31 March, not a solo trip, taking my GF, my daughter + BF, and my GF,s daughter and BF. GF,s daughter and BF are Vegas virgins, they are so pumped, but I told them NOTHING can prepare you for your fist taste of Vegas. Hopefully will have more VP porn to share.
