    My Trip Report

    Headed out this weekend for a Solo trip to Encore. Since i'll be solo I figure a tr will give me something to do while waiting for meals/etc... going to try to make this one mostly pics if i can get the tapatalk app to work. Bankroll is a little light since i had to buy a SUV out of my gambling roll because my puppy was getting too big to dive around in the back seat. Wife couldn't get the time off since she recently started a new job so she'll be at home alone with the beast (8 month old Bernese Mountain Dog) for the first time.

    Love the dog, love the stack.

    A question I've been meaning to ask. When you win a banded stack, do they count it? Do they make you count it? Do they make you agree that it's what it says it is and you can count it or not? (I hope to find out for myself someday...)

    RF, yes they count it through a money machine and re-band it with a strap. Its up to you if you want to count it afterwards. Last year at wynn during super bowl weekend, a strap was short $100 but not sure if it was from them or me even though i never used that strap again. Mistakes happen and maybe i should have counted it.

    they offer to break it and count it or you can take it as is. lol, i did keep it in sight of the cameras and count it without breaking the strap after the slot attendant left.

    Awesome win and a great looking dog!

    I am generally not a fan of longer haired dogs but those are one of the exceptions!

    nothing wrong with a huge picture of a bundle of 100s

    I also have pretty good luck at Mohegan. The problem is all of Mohegan money ends up in the Vegas strip machines. good luck

    Love the dog. Where are you from? Hard to find the breed in some areas.

    Have a great trip and a safe flight!! Don't know exactly where you live, but they are saying rain mostly in Brooklyn and Queens area due to the warmer tempertures around the city. North and west of the city should get snow. You should have no problems getting out. I love Virgin America as well. You have the 9:45am non-stop flight, or do you have to fly to LAX or SFO and connect?
