Will be doing a live report for my stay next month. Figured i would start with a short and sweet preface. 3 guys (so far) all being 23. my 3rd time, anothers 2nd time, anothers first time. We get in thursday morning, and leave sunday night. Two free nights at luxor, then one free night at mandala (thanks myvegas) each of us plans to bring between 1 and 5k for a gambling budget, and another thousand for food, drinks, clubs, pool and that sort of thing. 3 hour flight from Minneapolis Minnesota 273 dollars, limo to and from, including resort will be charged to the room and hopefully one of us goes crazy over budget and we get them comped on the back end Goals: liver failure, bankruptcy, hand pays, chip porn and hopefully 2 of my companions will get laid as their recently single (hence the trip) lol usually were all business and gamble 247 kind of people but hopefully we will do more walking and touring the strip and being more diversed this trip. My other two rewards from vegas are going towards a 50 dollar drink credit at nyny dueling pianos bar and balagio dinner buffet, (not sure what they are doing for their other two) If we do more walking around and not gambling we might have a hard time getting back end comps but we will cross that bridge later. We generally play green chips, blackjack roulette and high stakes slots. I might try and learn craps before but probably not. I know luxor has free lessons everyday so maybe give that a shot. Lastly our favorite casinos are cosmopolitan, Planet Hollywood, paris, ceasers, and mirage. I have been in maybe half of the casinos and never luxor or mandala, so it will be nice to try something new (hopefully we do not die from walking in the heat) I will be taking lots of pics and hopefully live updating this thread as I go along!
