    My Trip Report

    Well it finally happened. Went to the local WhoresShoe to play some free play and take advantage of 5x points. Turned free play into 180.00 and then went to play WW2 with winnings. Hit this beauty finally after $50 played thru.

    Then went to HL room for VP and scored this hit.

    Nice job. Wicked Winnings seems to be the hot machine. They just installed a bunch of them in Borgata AC.

    Awesome! WWII was the machine I hit 7699 on my December trip. Safe bet, we'll both be playing it again.

    It was a nice winning day from a period of Handpay drought. Forgot to also mention I hit a $1006 progressive on a quick hits machine. Final tally was up $4520 starting with $95 in free play. Never cracked open my wallet. Now the Vegas
    bankroll is reloaded and I just have to sit on my hands for the next 30 days. :evillaugh

    What a dream scenario. Winning $4.5K at your local casino prior to a LV trip...and you didn't even have to open your wallet. Enjoy this, it will be a long time before it happens again.

    Isn't that the truth, its one of the sessions to revel in. Last year I had a pretty good year, had around 5 HP and 11K W2G, but still managed to have gaming losses in 35K range (based on coin in). I think actual cash losses were
    closer to 17K. So I gave back those handpays. Looking on this year, I am changing strategy around to ensure I do more bankroll preservation. The best part is always when you can have big hits and maximize comp return, in this case 5X points.

    I always fall prey to temptation to up my play to try to parlay into a bigger hit. Example more multi-line VP, higher denomination slot. This year I am really trying to hold to stopping at CET bonus thresholds, so for example if my bankroll is X dollars when I hit that 1K Tier point level, stop the VP / slot play. If I have the bankroll to hit the next tier or the promotion is favorable (TR bonus point multiplier) then I will play some more.

    Awesome hits. Hoping I have the same luck at the Horseshoe in Bossier City at the end on the month. My wife was concerned going since we leave for Vegas 20 days later.

    Holding that 3 was pretty ballsy! Glad it worked out for you.

    People who play Triple Double Bonus with Double STP need to be ballsy. 3 Aces with a kicker acts like a 4 to Royal draw in TDB.

    Great hits Funk!!!
