This will be my first attempt at a live report. I am doing this with good intentions but we all know how that goes once the trip is underway. This report will be full of coupon use, promotion chasing, full pay VP and a little live poker. The reason I mention the report being long in the title is that we will be there for 13 nights (all comped). The itinerary is: 3 nights at the D 3 nights at Four Queens 2 nights at Cosmopolitan 2 nights at Suncoast 3 nights at Main Street Station (booked for 4 but sleeping there 3 nights) Meals: A lot of meals are comped upfront. We will probably be out of pocket for a few meals but will try to take advantage of coupons and promotions for these. Transportation: We have a rental car. We don't drink and really enjoy the mobility that a car allows. I was able to get a full size rental through Avis via priceline for $13 per day plus tax. This is our biggest expense. We are flying from the east coast but using miles for the flights. Gambling: Assuming we make it to all the places with offers, we have the following: $280 in match play $900 in free play $10 in added cash for poker We are low rollers in the sense that we play .25 VP. Royals are necessary on a trip of this length due to the number of hours played. If you combine the two of us, we probably log 16 hours a day (10 for me and 6 for my wife). To finish this initial entry: 6/25 is a travel day. We will arrive in the evening and have dinner at Pasta Pirate (using a 2-1 coupon and points). Probably only a couple of hours VP that night but the next morning the pace will pick up.
