I'm sitting here at work counting down the hours until I leave. This is my third trip to Vegas this year, 10th in the last 4 years. A buddy asked me to plan an "Old School Vegas Trip" after I returned from Vegas in June with my wife. His requirements were to stay downtown in a cheap room, with cheap beer, and cheap gambling, so the planning began. Here is my summary: Bank Roll: $500 per day. Most of my bankroll for this trip was funded by FanDuel. I had a nice run this summer with Baseball, and so far, Hockey, Basketball, and Football have provided a positive EV. I'm going to ride this DFS waive until they declare it "gambling" and not just a game of skill (sorry New York). Flight: Spirit Airlines. Driving from Columbus up to Cleveland to Fly out on Spirit for less than $200 round trip, and that includes the Big Front Seat. Non-stop flight leaves at 8:52pm and arrives in Vegas at 10:25pm local time. I've used Spirit several times before, and I'm a member of the $9 fare club, but I'll never fly them unless I get the Big Front Seat. Walmart First Class Baby! Hotel: I booked Four Queens tonight for $12.51 through Orbitz. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday staying at Main Street Station; $72/night Friday and Saturday, with Thursday night free with the American Casino Guide coupon. My buddy gets in Thursday night and leaves Sunday, so I'm heading to the strip after he leaves. Sunday and Monday night at Excalibur (MyVegas comped room on Sunday and $20 through Mlife with $25 in Free Play Monday night). MyVegas: Excalibur comped room Sunday 11/15 (15k LPS), $50 Free Play at Excalibur (150k LPs), one ticket to Fantasy Sunday night (33k LPs), and one breakfast buffet pass at Aria (19,500 LPs). I still have around 200k LPs to use for my next trip. Gambling: LOTS of Video Poker. I am in search of my first ever Royal. I will be taking advantage of the Plaza's $500 On Us Promo. I'll be playing 9/6 Boner Deluxe (99.64%) for $1 until I have run through $500 or reach $2500 (hopefully $4k and hit my Royal). I will then move down to quarters the following two days when I redeem the free play ($250 per day on the 2nd and 3rd day) on either Boner Deluxe or lower my variance and move to 9/6 JOB (99.54%). I have free play at The D, Four Queens, Downtown Grand, and El Cortez that I will also be using. Football Saturday and Sunday will be spent watching and betting on games. Any suggestions where to watch on Saturday or Sunday? Food: Nothing specific planned, but for sure; Pizza Rock and 777 Brew Pub, plus I have a Groupon for Nacho Daddy. Any other suggestions are definitely welcomed. Drinks: YES! Many Drinks. Primarily craft beers, but also have a Groupon for Vanguard Lounge for some craft cocktails. Pool: Only if PP shows up. Other: UFC 193 Viewing Party on Saturday at El Cortez. $10 for Club Cortez members and that includes a free draft beer. Check out Container Park, have drinks at some of the other bars on Fremont Street East, again, any recommendations are greatly appreciated. I love, and respect live trip reports, but I cannot in good faith commit to one. I will do my very best to provide updates and pictures especially if I hit that Royal, but I will for sure provide a write up at the end of the trip. Thank you everyone who has written live, and non-live reports, to get me through these last few months. I truly appreciate the time and effort you have put in. Until my next update, wish me good luck and Godspeed.
