    My Trip Report

    Going to give back and try to submit my 1st trip report. After reading so many good ones its time. warning this wont be live but I will try to pop in and out during the trip if I can. otherwise look for a full write up next week. I will be taking notes.

    Waring I suck at spelling and what not, sorry I was busy smoking pot and chasing skirts while in school.

    Leaving around 12 today hoping to beat LA traffic.

    ****Planned events
    :Friday we have a comp table at hakkasan.
    :Saturday pool party, Watch the Kentucky derby (Cousin has a family memeber with a horse running)
    : Have 2 vip closed circut tickets to fight at MB taking the Wifey
    : Gamblo Gamblo Drink Drink maybe eat/sleep

    Taking a smaller than normal bankroll this trip so plan is to try and hit and run if I can.

    Will be playing Craps, BJ and a little slots with the wifey. (No time for poker this trip says the wife:nono: she understands the game and knows I would play for min 8hrs)

    Around 8 of us going all in early 30's, I am the only gambler in the group beside my wife and Brother in law he is already out there for work,the rest just party very very hard ( I cant keep up)

    Hopefully I can figure out how to post pics from my phone (any help let me know)

    Dont care if I win or loss attuide just here for a good time. But I will accept all good lucks thrown my way.

    LATER:wave:

    Friday -
    We left at 1200 as planned drive out was very easy took under 5 hours with 2 restroom stops. Definitely happy we left at 1200 we were ahead of all the weekend traffic.

    When we pulled up the line for Valet was long, and I figured the lines to check in would be even longer, I had planned to check in via VIP, however to my surprise there was atleast 10 check in clerks just standing around so we just went straight to regular check in, no Sandwich needed in fact I just gave the lady my ID and 30 seconds later I was given 2 keys, no CC needed didn’t even sign anything. Not sure I couldn’t have been checked in any faster. I was regretting giving my bags to the bell hops to wait for them.

    After getting up to the room unpacking (Well my wife did I never unpack I just throw my shit down I am here to party and gamble) we head downstairs, now normally this is when I leave the wife to go play a long Poker sesh not on this trip, instead we head over to Mlife to get merge accounts so my wife could get her own Platinum card. And then she guides me over to the slots, now I must say I don’s care for slots that much but play them with my wife as she enjoys them. I always bet max everything and if I do not get some wins right away I tend to get bored. I suspect most everyone is like that.

    Life of luxury slot
    Wife found a machine she liked so she sat down and I went behind her to play a life of luxury machine I like this machine and my only goal is to get the diamond on the end on max bet, I checked my free play and loaded 40 plus a 20bill, hit the max 2-3 times and then the next spin the diamond welcomed me to Vegas. These type of bonuses always get me excited, for those who haven’t played the game, on Luxury bonus your get free spins however each line has a stone if the stone hits a line you win you get to pick 5 stones with one or more being the progressive, however on max you automatically win the progressive, Well I managed to get 4 of 5 stones you can guess which one I didn’t get yup the last one bummer however I was able to cash out at $600.00 even after playing a few more spins

    After showing my wife the win, I head to the pit, buy in $500.00 at $25 blackjack have 3 Jack in cokes, hit and run in under an hour +425.00 sweet like the way this is going so far.

    At this point I am good on gambling and we head over to VIP box office to grab our passes for the fight on Saturday, while walking over I run into a old host who is now and MB and he offers to buy us dinner, Sweet winning again we ended up at the pizza spot in the mall inside MB don’t remember the name anyway not sure if my host friend actually comp the meal or just paid for it out of pocket either way it was it was a nice thing on his part, dinner was ok we had pizza and a few beers.

    After dinner it was time to head up to the room and get ready to meet our friends at MGM and start the night at Hakkasan where one of our friends has a comp table. Again winning on this trip.

    Now one of the things that always makes me laugh is the taxi cab lines in Vegas, if you wait in these lines I am sorry but your either cheap or don’t understand how Vegas works. Of course the line was out the door 100 deep, being platinum they have a separate line which no one is ever in. but here is what makes me laugh, Take and damn 5 or 10 fold it walk up to the bell hop guys and bam you got your self a taxi, maybe I am spoiled but I don’t come to Vegas to wait in any line. Off to the MGM we go quick ride down the street and we show up to madness. This place is nuts as expected with a big fight in town, we make our way over towards the sports book and we wait to meet up with our group for the night.

    One of my fav things to do in life is people watch now Vegas is about as good as it gets, I was able to grab 2 seats near the end of the sports book, wife went off to get some beer. (Good wife I am a lucky man) we sat for about 30mins I went over the horseracing and fight bets with my wife and we sat thinking to are self’s if some of these girls had mirrors in there hotels rooms, finally my phone rings and we meet our friends. These are my best friends from home who I see every week we simply throw down some handshakes and head towards the madness at Hakkasan with our friend with the comp table leading the way, again not having to wait in any line we are in the club in seconds up at the table and off we go, long story short we danced the night away till 4am and headed home to MB to getting up the room by 5am to pass out.


    (Quick club fight story)
    We had a table next to us full of Marines just getting back from 9months overseas, now like any America should be I am always proud of them and very thankful for the service they provide for our country, naturally they got beyond wasted, and one of the guys from the group got into a fight with a much much larger guy at a table next to us, getting kicked in the head while on the ground during the fight. It was our group who actually broke up the fight, well we didn’t break the fight up so to speak we actually stood up for the Marines and they the other group backed down rather quick, thankfully because my group had some rather large gents who enjoy a good fight. I felt really bad for the Marine who got kicked in the head he had a huge lump and was very upset. Security finally came over and ended up kicking out the guy, who kicked the Marine in the head, but he went to take the Marines Military Id to make a copy and I would guess contact his base which wasn’t going to end well for him I am sure. We were able to talk the club out of that and told them to just send him home to bed. They did and back to drinking we went.


    Saturday

    Wake up shower and change into our pool attire wife wants to lay by the pool and demands I go with, hey you pick your battles in marriage my father taught me this. Hanging by the pool with your wife isn’t a bad thing anyway and if I get good boy points sign me up. We stop off at the café for a quick breakfast again using our players card to avoid the long lines, did I mention I love being platinum. Breakfast was ok just looking to fill up so we can keep in drinking.

    After breakfast we walk to the pool and of course it being around 1200 it’s packed. We make our way towards the lazy river and find a single chair, and here is why I love vegas I find kid pool attendant hand him some cash and he returns with another chair, wife and I enjoy the lazy river lay out and have a few cocktails, I remind my wife I have completed the mandatory 2hours by the pool and that we need to get our horse bets in before the race starts. Pack up head to the room my wife takes a nap and I put in the horse bets.

    Before heading back up to the room to watch the race I stop off at a $25 craps table buy in for $500.00, was never able to shoot but was around even when the wife called, count my chips and I am actually up $105 bucks, I tip the crew and back up to the room I go. Get back in time to watch the race of course my horse doesn’t make me any money, but with everything being a comp it’s actually the 1st time we spent or lost anything on this trip beside tips so I am not mad at all. We pass out for a bit wake up and head downstairs to get ready to watch the fight at the Mandalay events center, we stop off at the milfe desk to ask a few questions when the clerk asked us if we wanted to eat anywhere, now I know what this means and asked her where she thought we should eat she gave us $85 comp for Citizens where we spent $80 of the comp and enjoyed a nice meal before heading into the fight.

    I expected the MB event center to be packed with people I was wrong it was empty, the VIP area is actually the floor with big round tables on both sides with food and open bar, we get a table to ourselves order some drinks and watch the Amir Khan fight before the main event, Wife and I had thought about betting on the fight however I didn’t care for the price for either fight. Food at this event was below average banquet style food, however the drinks were free and very strong, again this is where giving the bartender a $20 tip on your 1st round goes a long way, wife and I enjoyed about 8 cocktails each getting a really good buzz going, for those who did watch the fight it was the best fight I have seen in a long time, I did feel Mayweather won by a small margin but not the 111-117 one judge had it.

    After the fight we had planned to meet up with our group at another club, but we were already drunk and at this point decided to stay at MB and gamble all night.

    Wife went off to slots I headed to play some 3 card poker dropping $500.00 in what seemed like 20mins, now one thing I hate more than anything is unfriendly dealers who act like they hate there job, I always tip well win or lose. I couldn’t pay this dealer to smile I wasn’t sure if her dog died before her shift or what, I could tell she didn’t like me smoking and actually made a fake cough sound a few times, it was then I decided to say something to the pit boss, who actually sent the dealer on break but at that point the vibe was shit and I was already down $500.00 so off I went to find the wife in the middle of a 5c max bet 50 free spins round, my wife doesn’t normally bet max on a 5c so when she got 50 spins she was freaking out, she was able to cash out just under a jackpot $1095.00 which was a big win for her, after that we walked around a bit and found some $1, $5.00 max bet slots where I was able to line up 2 progressive symbols not once not twice but yes 3 damn times in a row, never seen that before. What could have been if the 3rd one showed up, lame thing is I blanked on the 3rd wheel each time so wasnt able to win anything big. I did cash out up $800.00, after slots wife and I went over the craps table wasted where I went on to lose 2 $500.00 buy ins, neither my wife or I could hit a point. Still up for the trip and time for bed.


    Sunday-

    Wife and I went to bed with the plan to wake up early and spend some time at the pool before heading back home, now I knew in doing this we would hit traffic on the way home but making your wife happy should be the goal of any true gentlemen.

    We woke up around 10 heading for breakfast and then straight to the pool, cool thing about Sunday is the pool was less crowded we spent another 2hrs by the pool then back inside for some more gambling, nothing to write home about just played the slots with my wife losing a few $100.00 here and there, but getting back some points in return which I don’t mind.


    After that it was upstairs to pack and check out Sigalert.com (Traffic Map) and as expected it was red around stateline, So we called vip services and was given a 3pm check out free of charge, plan was to get some rest, after about an hour we both looked at eachother and said lets just head home sitting in traffic is the same as sitting here. (Well for me wife not for me who is driving) but keeping with the Happy Wife theme I was all for it.

    Filled up with gas and into traffic we went it took about 1.5hrs to get from MB to Stateline. Knowing we would sit in traffic we rolled the windows down stuck our feet our and played very loud music, no doubt we were the happiest car in traffic. Hey why not we just had a great trip in Vegas coming home a few bucks richer. Lucky to be living if you ask me. Getting bummed on traffic is pointless.

    Thank you for reading I had all intentions of posting pictures but didn’t even take any, outside from some random instagram video and pictures. But failed taking any gambling porn we all like to see, on wins I always too stoked and in the zone to pull out my phone.


    Again sorry for no pictures and shitty punctions and spelling.

    I have a all guys trip planned end of June for 5nights will try my best to grab some pictures on that trip.

    Well done to you and your party for intervening and for smoothing things over for the serviceman involved. I am always really impressed on my visits to the USA how appreciative and supportive Americans are to those who sign up to serve and protect their nation.
