Well I survived my birthday solo trip and ready to return! I stayed at the d for fri-sat and bally`s sunday to thursday night Next trip it will be downtown only. I play mainly video poker and slots and downtown was better than the strip without a doubt. I know there is a lot of debate on this and luck is required but I am convinced downtown is better. Especially compared to a harrah`s property. I had the idea of spending lots of time at bally`s pool but 110 degrees was just too much! I went to the goretorium and glad I had a groupon,very disappointed.
