    Trips to Las Vegas:

    So this website kept telling me to make my first post. I joined to check out Natedog666's trip reports but I may become more active as time goes on.

    About me:
    1) Earned Diamond with CET at Horseshoe Cincinnati in 1.5 months playing blackjack. Really worked the tier bonuses (mainly the 1000 points = 1000 point bonus) by playing Saturdays from 8 am until I hit my goal. Also made a 5 figure profit during this time, then gave it back :(
    2) I've only gone to Vegas once (last summer). This was right after earning Diamond and I got 5 nights at Caesar's Palace free. I booked their cheapest room but was upgraded to their best (Augustus) without my knowledge--a pleasant surprise upon check-in.
    3) I'm really not a baller--I think I just tricked the casino into thinking I was by running up serious tier points in such a short amount of time. In fact, my comps have now dropped to almost nothing.
    4) Still, I managed to book 6 nights at Planet Hollywood in 2 weeks for under $75. Pretty stoked for my second trip coming up!
    5) My favorite gambling games are (in order) any kind of poker tournaments, pai gow poker, omaha/8 cash games, blackjack, no limit hold'em cash games, three card poker and finally maybe some baccarat.

    Hope this doesn't come across as bragging--not my style at all. I figure "who's gonna read this??" and if they do, they're probably wondering if I have street cred to talk about whatever it is I'm commenting on...

    ***sits back down... let the rest of the introductions proceed***

    Welcome to the board! I also got my Diamond renewed for this year in early April....really love not needing to think of it again till 2015. You play right up the road from us, we live 20 minutes away from Horseshoe So Indiana. If you give HSC regular, minimal play as a Diamond, the offers will get better. Hope you have a great trip is a good one and that you enjoy PH.....let us know all about it with a TR.
