    In the past year, has your play in Vegas overall increased or decreased (or stayed the same)?

    Overall, down. Way down for Vegas, up slightly for the locals I visit, but that doesn't make up for the reduced Vegas visits.

    Stay the same at $125 to $150 and on rare occasion up to $200. That is Vegas. In the East Coast such as AC I would limit myself to just $20 to $30 per hand. Even better..... I don't play in the East Coast at all to save me the headaches. That is unless Steve Wynn gets to build his two casinos in Philly and Everett.

    I've been spending less locally (haven't been to a local casino in a few months) so that I can take more on my trip to Vegas in November.

    Mine has went up with both local and vegas casinos.

    Unfortunately the more I play, the higher stakes it takes to get me excited.

    number of trips in the last year is down, but size of play hasn't changed much. but it's up pretty significantly in the last 1.5 years.

    My average bet or coin in or theo per trip (or however you want to measure it) is definitely up over the past year or so. But I've gone from taking 5-7 trips per year to 3-4. (I'd like to get it down to 2/year...not sure that's possible.:rolleyes2:)

    Overall, I'd say it's added up to "about the same".

    I risk the same amount daily but have taken fewer trips. Elderly dog restricts travel.

    While I still get to Vegas twice a year, my bankroll is now half or even less than half of what I used to take. Reason? Retirement and not having the disposable income I had when working.

    Decreased at Vegas. Moved from 100% slots during our first trip to Vegas to 90% blackjack and 10% slots during our second stay.

    On our first trips we would bring about $600 for 3 nights/4 days and that was BR and food. Not sure how we ever made it! Played a lot of 9-line nickel machines and $5 BJ.
    Now we bring $2-3k for the same length of stay, mostly pennies and still come home broke most of the time. Crazy!

    Increased way too much in the past 2 years...started at $100 a day, then to $300 a day, now up to $1000 a day...but my salary has stayed the same...SMH

    I got a taste of $1 and $5 slots...and now penny and $0.25 slots just arent fun...

    For the past year average bet is up but hours played is down. We've been taking trips with friends who don't gamble much and/or doing more dining experiences and taking in some attractions so our time at the tables has suffered. I'm looking forward to our January trip to do some serious parking at the table....it feels like forever away!!
