    Lately I've been having a sort of recurring dream. I'm usually in a casino and I assume it to be Las Vegas but it's never 100% accurate. But I always feel like I'm at either aria or Cosmo. Well it's getting to the end of the trip and I'm getting anxious that I hardly played the whole trip. It usually has to do with me entertaining others on the trip. The last one was where I'm there with my dad just hanging out. I had played some video poker and met up with my dad. After we hang out I go back to the machine bank and they're done. There's a temp wall put up and they're building a night club or restaurant where the machines were. I think remember I only have a few hours until my flight so I'm hunting for open machines. But every bartop was taken and the only open ones were slots only or out of order. What the heck is wrong with me!? Haha anyone else have anxious Vegas dreams?

    Totally have these dreams. Usually with mine I've just arrived at the hotel and it takes forever to check in or I can't find the front desk or some other obstacle prevents me from gambling! :rolleyes2:

    Not being able to find something keep recurring for me as well. I get all anxious I can't find a craps table that I like as well. In my dream even came across a table with a $14 minimum. haha

    If I see someone else in my dream freaking out I will be sure to say hello to you.

    haha, yes, please do! In my dream I'm always thinking: "How is it that I'm in Vegas and I haven't gambled yet, what's wrong with me?!?"

    At least occasionally I have some gambling only dreams where I hit royal flushes and jackpots! Though those are frustrating when I wake up and realize I didn't win anything....

    These are all just way too funny. Yes, I have them too. In my dream, I'm somewhere, but it's not Vegas. My problem is trying to find real slot machines. In my dream, they are weird slot machines, and pay out in things like candy bars and stuff like that.

    God dammit, reading this post must have inspired me to have a dream like this last night!

    I was with my girlfriend and her mother at the LINQ and they were begging me to watch Sleepless in Seattle with them. I don't think we were in a room though, it was more like a lounge area with our own private TV.

    So the movie was just getting started and I all of a sudden realized, what the fuck am I doing, we leave for the airport in a couple hours and I haven't gambled at all!

    So I told them enjoy your movie, I'm going down to play some VP at TAG, and that's all I remember.

    I've lived...... the "not being able to Check -in" Anxiety Dream !
    *
    It was at Caesars ----
    I got behind some "foreign tourists" and they just wouldn't move at the counter !
    I jumped to the next line......not moving.......
    then jumped to another line.....MISTAKE !
    Jumped back to my original line......foreign tourists still looking at brochures !
    It was a nightmare.....NOT a dream !
    *
    I finally grabbed a "suit" walking by + complained.
    Guy took me right into VIP Check-in
    I checked-in.............foreign tourists = still looking at brochures !

    The past few years I always have the same dream but it's after I return home.

    I dream that I'm still in my vegas hotel room but all the stuff I have from home is with me. Wall unit, tv, stereo, couch, etc. I'm panicking because I don't know how the heck I'm going to get all my stuff back home, and I'm supposed to be checking out this morning. I usually get up with my heart racing and usually after a week or so the dream goes away.

    But then this dream isn't only about vegas, in 2013 I went on a tour of Europe. After I got back I had a dream of staying in my house but when I looked out of my window I could see the Eiffel tower. Funny because I stayed in a hostel in paris but it didn't have any view of the Eiffel tower so guess like the movies my mind made something up in my dreams.

    No expert here, but I don't think there's anything wrong with you... I love it when I dream! Isn't that when you're getting a deep sleep?

    The only Vegas dream I remember having was 2 or 3 days before one of the few nonstop flights I've had from an airport about 75 miles away. In the dream, I am walking in the terminal's front door from the parking garage and, in a panic, realize I don't have my bankroll or my luggage (never even packed it!), Then I woke up.

    Is everybody naked in these dreams, or is it just me? And I have to go to the bathroom, but find a slot machine at the end of an aisle where I relieve myself in the change tray. I only have normal dreams like this one.

    Meant to add that the gf has had a Vegas dream too. Her and I were at the airport trying to go thru security and we are running late. So late that I drop my bag with her, say "I'm going to Vegas!" And go thru a side door bypassing security. Haha. She was mad at me when she woke up.

    That's not a dream. Pretty sure I've smelled that before.

    That would bend my mind for real. What do I put out for the inside numbers? How much should I get back on a win? WAAAAH!

    $18 6 and 8. Harrahs New Orleans is the only place I've seen with $20 tables. Not quite $14 weird but $20 is something I've never seen anywhere else.

    I'll be getting my fix next weekend though. Hopefully the nightmare doesn't become a reality. It's just a tribal casino where I don't care about status, comps, etc. so no big deal if I get caught up in other stuff since it's a family event for the gf.

    The Vegas dream I have most frequently is that I'm in Vegas for only a day and I don't have my wallet with me so I have absolutely nothing to do.

    The other dream that I have, but far less frequently, is that I'm in Vegas for the weekend and Dean Martin is my bartender no matter where I turn up to have a drink.
