    My Trip Report

    Hello!
    This is my first TR, actually first post on VMB at all.
    Long time lurker but first time poster!

    Departing on Virgin Atlantic from Manchester tomorrow at 11.30, getting into LAS at 14.30 local time.
    First two nights in Caesar's (comp'd, resort fees only), then move to pho for 2 nights (again, comp'd, resort fees only). Then a 9 day trip with friends from university to Florida via Pikes Peak, New Orleans, Panama City Beach and Daytona Beach before flying back MCO to MAN on the 3rd of September.

    My time in Vegas will mostly be solo, two friends are there on work and so tied up during the day and some evenings. Not an issue for me, as neither of them gamble that much, unlike me, the group degen....

    I mainly play craps, but will also throw a few hundered into slots and BJ (although not sure I like this trend away from 3 to 2)

    BR is about 4k for the 4 days, that to include food, drink and whatnot.

    Not sure if I'll be doing live updates or not, but will try and keep fairly up to date!

    Mike

    Preparation is well under way, starting with the classic 'casino' and a 6 pack....

    Cheers Mark. Have never stayed at pho before, but always loved their laid back craps crews, hence staying there this time!

    Have a great trip! While Aria is my new home base I'll always have a soft spot for PHo because I stayed there for my first 2 trips. Win lots!

    Haha, neither. I don't really do football, more into Rugby. If I had to support a football team it would be my local team, Huddersfield Town. But I don't care for the sport really.

    Travel is going well, inflight wifi is making it nice to keep in touch with the rest of the world. About 4 hours to go, expected into vegas slightly early which is good!

    Will update more fully later on

    Matches more reasonable to attend as well huh? No multi million salaries to pay

    Yep, about £30 a ticket for a rugby league match, compared to I've no idea how many hundreds for a premier league game! Rather put the money into the Vegas fund!!

    Day 1 done. 26 hours no sleep thanks to flight and time zone. Down about 700 so far, was up by about 500 at one point....
    I really hate grumpy craps deals. Generally Ill always throw a 2 way $2 c&e on the come out roll, but apparently that isn't enough tokes for some!! Oh well. As soon as I get negative vibes I'll move table and tip some other dealers!

    When you said flying from Manchester, I thought New Hampshire. I see I was wrong! I won't complain about long flight to Vegas anymore....

    Have a blast. Win lots.
