    My Trip Report

    Tomorrow marks the start of my second trip. By the way, I tried to put the dates in a US format for you and managed to screw up. Let's try it another way. My trip is 9th November through to 16th November!

    General Info:

    I am 27 and from a place outside of Manchester, UK. I will be travelling with my girlfriend, K, 24. Our first to Vegas was last year on the exact same dates. That trip was meant to be a one off, a tick on the bucket list, but people that have been to Vegas know that isn't how things pan out.

    As it happens many of you fine gentleman are also in Vegas during this period and all going well I should get the chance to meet some of you. I know plans currently mean catching up with a few of you on my last night so let's see how things work out with other commitments. I'll be updating those involved as early as possible as I know things need to be confirmed.

    Flights:

    Direct flights are not available from the UKs third largest airport at this time of year so I will be flying from Manchester to Chicago, then Chicago to Las Vegas. The first flight starts at 9.45am and I get to Vegas 5.45pm local time. I think it will be somewhere around 1am for me when we land.

    Flight Cost £1,200/$1,887 (Economy for 2 on American Airlines)


    Accommodation:

    Cosmopolitan - 7 Nights In a One Bed Terrace (Premium View)

    4 Night Comp
    3 Night Casino Rate

    Total Cost : $625 before resort fees and taxes. (No resort fee on compd nights)

    I will be trying everything possible to snag a Wraparound, mainly for the benefit of my girlfriend who is otherwise easily pleased. We will see what the cost and availability of that is at 7pm on a Sunday evening.


    Bankroll & Gambling

    $5,000 Cash.
    $240 Cosmo FP.

    Despite reading this website and others daily since my last trip, I still don't know if my action will be enough for anything back end but no doubt I'll be hitting you guys up for advice near the end of my trip. I'll try to be as accurate as possible with our play.


    GoPro packed. Tapatalk installed and will be tested soon. £5/$8.35 gets me Unlimited access to Calls/Txts/Data Internationally on my 'cell' phone so expect regular updates during the quieter periods.

    WISH ME LUCK!

    If anyone knows of any Single 0 Roulette tables with a $50 or lower minimum centre strip, speak up! It will save me a job hunting for one.

    The rules at the Cosmo is that you could bet $25 on the inside bets but your total bet had to be $100. So you could bet $25 each on 4 numbers, but not $25 each on 3 numbers.

    Thanks PT. Is that in the HL room? I quite like that idea. I'm weighing up trying what you did but not got the BR to support it at those levels but might give it a try downtown.

    Yes It is in the high limit room. They only have one wheel.
    Which makes me think: if we track that wheel, can we uncover a bias?

    Tapatalk test. All ready to go, just got to go to sleep! It's been rebooting the app when I try and post a pic. Will see how it works when I get there. Can always save pics to the gallery and post them at a later time.

    Best of luck to you! I had to quickly scroll past your stack of 50's...those things are bad juju to me. Although, lately in Vegas, so have 100's, 20's, 10's, and 5's...lol.

    Thanks for the well wishes all.

    Sindustry none of them were good to me last time lol. The place I went to get currency didn't have hundreds. Actually, none of the places I went to in my town had hundreds in!
