    My Trip Report

    I just stayed at Mirage for 3 nights then NYNY for 1 night about a week ago and my last day was amazing!

    I usually bet the minimum, anywhere between 30-75 cents and play for long periods of time (5,6,7 hours of slots at a time)..


    Anyway, I was down about $500 for the whole trip UNTIL the last day before flying back home. Below are a few highlights of my day (One that I may not match until I can bet bigger!)

    - Went to go checkout from Mirage on Tuesday morning at about 10am and while I was walking down I sat down at a Bull Elephant machine with $20 hoping to hit the $455 progressive. To my surprise I hit the OTHER progressive about 3 minutes in which was for $355. I was ecstatic so I cashed out and went to check out from Mirage.

    - Took a taxi over to NYNY and couldn't check in yet so checked the bags and sat down at a slot near the check in counter - Can't remember the name but it it had volcanoes for the bonus trigger and the 5th reel had either 2,3,5 or 10x multiplier for the bonus. Think I was betting 30 cents and hit a bonus at 10x for 25 spins. Won about $60 - Not huge but a nice win to start at the south end of the strip.

    - Next went over to MGM and played a slot (can't remember the name) and hit a bonus for about $40...THEN the big one! Walked around a bit and found a bank of 4 machines where you had to collect skulls to get a chance to play big screen above you where you could win progressives. Anyway, I played one and collected enough skulls for 2 bonuses, both of which only paid $2.50 each. I was going to leave when my mom told me that someone had collected 4/5 on another one so I only needed one more skull. I put $20 in and in about 10 spins at 70 cents each I hit the bonus, rolled the the dice and landed on a castle with a gold and silver progressive. I had a chance to choose 1 out of 48 squares, one of which held a gold progressive for $812 and 3 of which had the silver for about $400. I selected one and the gold progressive popped out, $812 on a 70 cent bet!! Only had a 1/48 chance for that and picked the right one!

    - After eating lunch we left the MGM and i went over to Bellagio and won $140 on a power spins slot machine bonus, then played the rest of the night at NYNY and had a few nice hits for $100 each. In the end, I was about $1400 up for the last day!

    May not sound like much to some but being a minimum betting player, it was awesome!

    Hope everyone has the same luck next time they go..:peace:

    Minimums are different values to different players, and most people should be playing their minimum anyway. But $1,400 in the black for a negative ev game is great for any player whether their minimum is pennies or yellow chips. Congrats!
