We left Edinburgh for Vegas via London Gatwick and had an uneventful trip, only point worth mentioning was how quiet the London to Vegas BA plane was - great for us but may be a problem for the route continuing in future? On leaving the airport, we were so tired and just wanted a sleep, we failed to say to the driver to " avoid the Tunnel" we just said the cheapest way please and for the first time ever we were tunnelled and paid our heftiest ever taxi fare, McCarran to the Excalibur cost just ubder $30 !!!!!! The drivers details weren't easily legible to complain about him but we have learned our lesson! At check-in, as we are staying 14 nights, we used the $50 sandwich and ended up with a small upgrade fron Standard to " Resorts" room. Since last year, they have re- named Tower 1 into the Royal Tower and Tower 2 into the Resorts Tower. After a nap, we set out to use the tip our taxi driver who took us back to the airport last year gave us which would apparently give us a great chance to win big on Megabucks! Surprisingly, we quickly lost $20 on the $1 x 3 coin max play and quit! Still, for a $12m. progressive, worth a shot. They have shifted around a lot of their slots since last Jan., so in trying to find our usual WoF 25c. machines we lost big for us on Double Top Dollar, Money Mad Martians, no bonus spins on either and when we eventually found our favourites, lost on them too! $150 down on slots, we went upstairs to the food court, had a McDonalds and just before bed, went into their 24/7 shop for snacks. Previously, we have grumbled about their high prices in that shop, but not this year - they have removed all price tags from individual items such as sandwiches, chips, candy, water and just about everything else so you are stuck with a complete guessing game! Not a very large bottle of water turned out to be $5.25, sandwich was $5 and when I handed over my basic level Mlife reward card the assistant said oh we only accept Platinum or Gold!!!! As they say, things can only get better, I will update regularly throughout our trip, we usually play low roller slots every day and go to quite a few shows every trip .Speak soon.
