    My Trip Report

    Ok so Gaggles and BNK arrived today at 1pm...Big Sack and I arrive tomorrow at 1pm and leave on Sunday at 8:50AM. From the the point that we take off to arrival back at Hicksville, MT airport is roughly 48 hours. Never had a trip this short, but had 3 days off and got a flight for $160 so figured wtf.

    Staying at Paris comped with macker sr. Big sack and my friend Uncle Tom (no relation) are staying at ballys. Because of the short amount of time we will hit the ground running after check in, that I'm sure of! Got a limo pickup at the airport as Uncle Tom is a Vegas Virgin, so fuck waiting in a Friday afternoon cab line, lets do this in style baby!!! I have the tapatalk app, a Canadian data plan and that too drunk to care mentality so will try to put plenty of live updates up!!! Also will get gaggles to update from diamond lounge.

    Since this thread will get 500 replies I thought I'd be the first. I'm at the Beau, headed to bed after raping them for a quick 30k after dinner. May you boys find the same luck or even better!

    With no BeeeJay (back to the grind at Red Lobster) and the fact that it wasn't started 2 weeks in advance I doubt this will be close to the viewing of our usual trip reports. Glad to hear you're taking it to them at the Beau! Thank you for the good luck wishes :beer:

    Good Luck Macker, hope your a big chip stacker!

    BTW is this the trip where Gaggles has a Harrah's Petite Suite booked, if so get the low down. Rumour was that Harrahs has been doing a quiet refresh of the soft goods in these rooms.

    Watch out for Sgt. Jenkins

    Ok so time for an update on last night. Started off at the back bar in ballys where the video poker was not kind, we then went down to Po's bar at the sports book, where again video poker was not kind, bit we did get filled full of Grey Goose. Senior and I went back to the room to get ready for the night.

    We met Uncle Tom and big sack at Gustavs bar in Paris. They had a healthy glow from the diamond lounge so we had to catch up. As we were playing we started notice our machines flickering, along with the lights. Then big sack got a flash flood warning on his us cell phone. Turns out it was fucking pouring, with huge lightning. We hopped in a cab to Caesars to meet Gaggles and BNK at the seahorse bar. It was pouring and streets were flooded. Half their machines were out of service, so walked to sports bar but they had that ropes off cause water was pouring out of the ceiling. So walked back to seahorse and got a seat. Broke even there, then our host Steve sent a limo for us to the Golden Gate.

    At the Golden Gate we played vp, lost a bit but got hammered, so I decide it was craps time. I bought in and after three shooters I was down to 25% of my original buy when the guy beside me went on quite the heater, so made almost $500 on the roll and then I went point, 7 out, then cashed out.

    Went over to the D to find rest of crew, but couldn't find Senior...BNK said he told them he was going to Starbucks at GN. Turns out senior was a drunk mess and though coffee would help. He was half asleep with a coffee in front of him lol. Take him to McDonald's and full him full of greasy carbs to sober his ass up. I should also mention the at GG i went to take a piss and Uncle Tom was puking. So the old guys were all fucked so I decided to take their ass back to strip. Uncle Tom opened his cab door as we pulled up to ballys and puked everywhere! We walked him to his room and went back to the casino. I played triple play, broke even and went to bed at 2am as senior was just sobering up a bit.

    Sitting in bed watching the open, heading to bellagio cafe for lunch, then pool I think.

    Looks like Macker either got whacked (per another thread) or got washed down the LV rainwater collection system.:cry:

    Theres also the possibility they got picked up with Beeejay by the NSA covert monitoring program mistaking the phrase "Hookers and Blow" as the code name for some terrorism plot.

    I had no idea we were doing a TR......

    Because I have been a notorious slacker on these of late due to the high volume of trips I shall be brief.

    Left Thursday. Arrived around 1 pm. Cab line short. Funkhouser, I cancelled the Harrah's Petite Suite as Caesars came up free and I while I have not stayed in a Petite Suite, I suspect an Augustus room still beats it out.

    Because we were early the nice lady at check in said I could get you a room on 44th floor on corner facing Bellagio if you wait. Yes. We would wait thank you.

    Off to Seahoirse bar where my luck from last trip seemed to still be on tap.

    Although I never finished my last trip after the dust settled I had a $2000 Royal, 2 aces w kicker for $1000. Dealt quad aces on a 10 play (only BP) etc. to come home with $3000 more than I started with after 5 days in Vegas and 3 in LA.

    It was not a quick 30000K before dinner (nice Shifter) But a darn good win for us low rollers nonetheless.

    So what happened in the hour before we checked in at the Seahorse bar? Quad 4s on BP .50 level, Quad 6s on $1, and then quad 6s again. Cashed out a winner and liked how Caesars had just paid me to wait for my comped room. Thanks CET.

    No Quads for BNK.

    Things would go south from here.....

    Room was great as always. 44th floor. Last room on corner before those big pimping suites facing the strip. I suspect I will never get comped on those as long as I'm playing $1 vp. And that's okay.....

    Despite the smell from emitting from the Flamingo we went in. WE checked out the long bar tops by check in. Can't remember what those are titled...But the bar was shut down. Now despite a $3000 worth of Royals and Aces in 24 hours there last trip...I don't play short pay CET bar tops without Grey Goose subsidizing the almost guaranteed losses! So we went up front to the hooker bar.

    I started with .50 DDBP and hit only one quad 5. That would be my second last quad of the night! And it was only about 5:30 in the afternoon!!!! You can guess how things went from here I suspect.

    It was a crawl from here to Bally's to see our associate's Donny and Rick. And then it was nothing but donations. Those bar tops just don't like us.

    As we leave the vp bar we see a crew waiting for customers at an empty craps table. BNK who normally doesn't play craps looks at me and states "We are changing this shit up" There is no objection here.

    After about 45 minutes of treading water and betting for the dealers I tip them out and I am down $25. Best we could get was two points on the Fire Bet and as soon as I pressed my 6/8 to amounts that would catch my interest that dirty old 7 showed up. I think after rolling craps three times now in the last two trips, BNK is starting to understand.

    And I thought I heard people on VMB saying they had cut back the number of craps tables from 5 to 3. I can assure you all, there were 5 tables when I was there.

    Now as we prepared to leave we could barely see and yet we knew our mission could not end just yet as it was only about 8:30. Nobody calls it a night at 8:30 on their first night in Vegas do they?

    So we go to the HL room. Just to use the nice bathrooms.......

    I am out in about 2 minutes and waiting for BNK. When I don't see her and then see another woman walk into the bathroom I realize I have been had. BNK is over at the only $1 DDBP machines they have. I have had notorious luck at these things. BNK, not so much. But bless her chasing ass, she is gonna try.

    So as we are playing a gentlemen rolls up and says "Hello Mr. Gaggles how is your night going?" I'm a little surprised and frankly was actually hoping any employee approaching me would be a waitress as I was getting pretty thirsty.

    In any event it was the casino mgr saying hi and generally being nice and chatting us up. We got to talking (maybe out of my ass) about my assigned CET host and how the guy has never helped me with anything and could he get me a host at Bally's? I freely admitted that I understood if I didn't merit any attention for a host ( I suspect I do not) but if he could hook me up with one of those South Tower Suites when they are done being renovated I would cancel my Caesars reservation and come on over.

    So he was a good guy and I am not sure what, if anything, will come from this but I will post anything of significance. If anyone can can provide insight as to whether he was glad handling the few players in is HL room on a fairly slow Saturday or that my play/losing may have started to be a blip on the very low radar I would welcome input. I have been Diamond for 4-5 years and have put about 5000 points on the card the last two trips. My gut tells me he was bored and it was a slow night but he did manage to get us a cocktail waitress......

    So we lost at the $1 DDBP and then I lost more than a few Benny's at the triple plays. Time to get the hell out.

    Did someone say Pina Coladas at the Bellagio??????

    Hmmmm. This TR update does not seem to meet the definition of brief. Bad habits I suppose......

    I will be brief where the rest of the night is concerned. The $1 Progressive was just over $6000 and this seemed like a good place to start. As Beejay did not get a text of me hitting the Royal, you can guess what didn't happen. Donation!

    Still only down though about $200 due to the early wins at Caesars I did the only sensible thing I could think of. I went to chase at the 10 play machines!

    After putting in an $80 ticket.....it was $200 a few minutes ago but BNK was getting bored so we cashed out and moved on....I got it up pretty fast after a quad 2s no kicker. So at around $250 I once again did the only sensible thing there was to do. I bumped my 10 play from .25 to .50!

    This formula on this bank of machines has literally worked more often than not. I swear! I am not using drunk, selective, gambling memory! It DID NOT work here. $400 more later we left. Drinking some of the most expensive Pina Colada's in history!

    If anyone can fathom this, we were in bed on our first night in Vegas and asleep by 11 pm!

    Day 1 in the books.....

    After 9 glorious hours of sleep we awoke more refreshed than when we had arrived! The night before we maybe got about 6 hours of sleep for some reason so it was good!

    It was about 9:00 when we hit the Mirage buffet as BNK had never been there. A good buffet for a still decent price of around $17.

    Afterwards it was to the Caesars pool where we enjoyed some $18 (small) pina colada's. The large were $24 the small $18. I know this because I asked the bartender. Our waitress had told us there were no large glasses so we could only get small ones. Looks like someone is lying.......Couldn't be to get more tips could it??? I didn't say a word to our waitress but "eff u" to her.

    After a few hours in the pool my lack of sunscreen was beginning to show and we needed to hit the room for a nap. yes...after 9 hours of sleep in Vegas we were napping. I apologize for nothing!

    We also had a 6:00 pm dinner reservation at the Bally's Steakhouse where my $100 Diamond Dinner voucher would get us started. Since they are closing this steak house down we thought we should try to get here a few more times this year.

    So after a quick nap we prettied ourselves up and headed out for the evening for drinks before dinner. And just maybe some vp.......
