    My Trip Report

    So I get a Stupid offer from Spirit to fly to VEGAS and back for $16.60 each way. That is 1 cent for the ticket and $16.59 for taxes and fees. So I took the morning flight to Vegas. I could have gotten there at 7am but that was too early, so I took the 9:58 to get there at 10:52 I think. And I come back at 8pm and get home at 1am. I could have left at 1am or 8pm on Saturday but talking to pleepleus I figure to make it a quick hit and run so did not want to roll home at 7am and did not want to stay the day. It would have only been $20. More to take the later flight. This is important later.

    So I get in to Vegas and have my friend pick me up and we head to Caesar’s I get checked in so I can get my free play. Then off to Cosmopolitan to pay off the marker from last trip and meet up with PayTriple.
    I pay off the marker and meet up with PayTriple. Big shout out to PayTriple.
    We hit the roulette table and he shows me how he plays we go up and get a marker each.
    I just paid off my marker and getting another one. Oh well that is why we come here.
    We are doing good in just a couple of spins playing single 0 roulette $100 min. and he is up and I’m up a few Yellows and then the dealer even says we should QUIT as the wheel could turn bad, but we keep playing. And NOOO WE don’t listen to the dealer and keep playing. Needless to say we both lose.
    Pleepleus meets up with me and we talk for a little and I knew I should have taken the later flight so more on this later. Pleepleus and I decides to head to Wynn.

    I hit the craps table. And I start on the pass. Guess what I hit a point and then 7 out.
    The dice go around the table and everyone is losing and I’m down a few yellows. So the table clears and I’m going to shoot from the don’t. I make a point shoot for like forever then 7 out. I think I hit the low and almost the high. I keep shooting but never make my point but shoot for a pretty long time.
    I’m throwing the dice hard and off the table hitting the money chips. Anything to 7 out.
    I end up getting all I lost back and a little so I color up and leave.

    So yes you can make a come back on the Don’t. I should have done doey/ don’t so I could have lay more in odds and could have made some money.


    We head back to Caesar’s so I can wash out my Free play. This is where I messed up. The plan was to wash the free play and leave. But I don’t and I end up playing this bad no streak shoe but I have a few people I know playing so I want to stay and being stubborn I keep playing and chasing. Ended up losing.
    I’m thinking I should change my flight and leave either later that night or tomorrow. The fare change is only $100. I’m betting $300 to $800 and don’t want to pay $100 to change my flight?
    Another player throws a black chip at me and says here I’ll pay your flight change if you stay and play another shoe. I gave the chip back. It not the money. Its the fact that my change fare is more then two round trip tickets so I said. Thanks but I I’ll catch my schedule flight.

    So sorry no pics. Too short of a trip. Had fun meeting some more fellow VMBers and of course Gambling with them.

    Always fun to meet up with pleepleus and great to meet and gamble with PayTriple too. I know there was more fellow VMBers in Vegas that I did not get to meet but I'm sure we will soon.



    Since I’ll be back in two weeks. That should be the Epic trip.

    Thinking I need to head to Shreveport/ Bossier City now....:rolleyes2: :thumbsup: Before the weekend is up.

    That is a crazy flight offer, by far the best deal I ever heard of, hard to pass that one up!

    I'm impressed that you had the conviction not to change your ticket, that had to be tough, especially since you are still planning to casino this weekend!

    It was quick, but sounds like you had some fun with pleepleus and PayTriple ~ sorry you couldn't pull out a big win this trip. I figure maybe the big win will come on the Epic trip - it would only be fitting!

    Thanks for sharing the quick trip with us!

    Oh how I would love to be able to go to Vegas for just a day or a weekend. At the same time, I don't think I could leave after just a day or a weekend. Love being in Vegas too much. Anyhow, great one day report. Sorry about the loss. Another chance in two weeks though....

    Thanks for sharing!

    Wow, cannot believe you flew both ways for just 8 hrs. It's got to be about 6 hrs in the air while in Vegas for 8. I can understand a day trip from LA, SD, and PHX but from Texas? You are my idol lol. Hope to meet you Super Bowl weekend and good luck in a few weeks pp.

    Sorry about the loss but thanks for the report. I now feel less crazy. I'm doing a similar trip for GGWU at Caesars in December. Traveling from the East Coast and there a little less than 24 hours. I hope to be disciplined, get my gift, play my free play, walk the strip and head back to the airport. I'll be back in late December for a longer trip.

    Great to meet you PPHold! A brother from another mother.
    Too bad we lost at roulette but I'm looking forward to playing with you again in the future.
    (And many thanks for the use of your Caesar' room so I could make a college donation, details and pics to come when I post my TR next week.)

    I didn't lose that much so it was not too bad. I should have stuck to the plan and did the HIT and RUN. Collected the Free play and leave. If I had suck to the plan I would have won and still got to meet a few more VBMers.

    Pleeplues did warn me to leave and stick to the plan.

    paytriple and I just up caught up with the winning streak and didn't stop.

    Since there are no Casino's in Dallas it is not uncommon for me to drive 3 hours to go to Shreveport/bossier city to gamble a few hours and come back so this was like that trip for me.

    We all have to agree VEGAS is VEGAS and no place can compare.


    I didn't have a good vibe later in the day is the reason I didn't stay and there was no real streak to make me want to stay. The only reason was to meet more VMB members.

    I almost did just for that but since I'll come back in two weeks figure it was better to meet more then.


    I have meet some very nice people on the VMB and hope to meet more and make more friends.



    And I agree with shifter WTF! on this.


    congats if I had stuck to the plan


    so

    WTF!!!!!!!!! :peace:

    That looks like a Dan Bilzerian stack.

    It's a shame we couldn't play on that reserved table behind us that was 22 bank/11 player.

    good eye PLEEPLEUS That is exactly who's stack it belongs to Dan Bilerian.


    If they would have let us play on that reserved table I would have stay over the weekend.

    Good news is I'll be back in less than two weeks.

    pleepleus how did you do this weekend? I think Nevada is going to make change your residence there at how long you spend in Vegas.

    Sindustry, I did have fun but it always more fun to win money...

    Texas needs allow Steve Wynn, Sheldon Adelson, and the MGM to build casino's here.

    Till then I'll just have to spend 3 hours to fly to Vegas or drive to Shreveport.
