    My Trip Report

    Roughly my 20th trip to vegas. Love the place but have never walked away a winner until the last trip. Usually i lose but thats vegas who cares as long as you have fun doing it!

    Stayed at Aria on an offer - comped corner suite $1000 free play and $325 F&b. Limo from airport and access to the mew vip lounge in the lobby?

    Me, husband and son flew from London - had a bunch of miles so we were able to grab the front three seats on BA First -1a 1k and 2a. There was a lady in 2k but she moved back pretty fast after seeing our very lively son (4 years old very excited about flying) so it felt like we had a private cabin. Lovely start to the trip.

    Limo didnt turn up so waited a while then just got a cab. Got to Aria amd went to the new VIP lounge to check in. Total joke - avoid - 2 people on duty and took 30 mins to get to the desk. Room wasnt ready but we were offered a free downgrade to check in straight away - i actually took it and Went from panoramic to normal corner suite. Was fine we just wanted to get on with it.


    So i wont bore you with all the details of our trip ... now for the slot porn. I havent posted photos before so lets hope this works on the next few posts!

    Very nice win! We are comped at aria in a corner suite in April, I'm hoping the tower suites lounge is a better experience for us. What time were you checking in?

    About 3pm -they didnt seem to think the wait was a problem after an 11 hr flight- worth it in the end though!

    Sorry about the Aria check-in. This, alas, seems to be par for the course lately with that property. Really sad about declining service.

    And then landed this one - if you dont know the machine in the feature each time you win in a streak you get a chance at a higher multiplier or a progressive. This was the top progressive!

    I have never seen so many handpays on "penny" machines. Congratulations!

    Are you a UK citizen? If so, can you can avoid taxes on gambling winnings under a tax treaty?
