    My Trip Report

    As most people on this forum know I like to indulge in the occasional gamble that often goes out of control. This time around I look forward to going crazy and out of control but hopefully still within budget :rolleyes2: staying 2 nights at Wynn followed by 2 nights at the Venetian. Watching the Mayweather fight at Aria closed circuit. I've got a crew of 8 people. Looking to practice my dice control and try out some sluts... um I mean slots. Yeah slots. Putting my money on Mayweather but I might do a few small prop bets like round 6 or knockout. Haven't decided on which after party yet but looks like the best parties are around $250 cover. Surprisingly Omni at Caesars seems to be the cheapest with Afrojack for $30 presale.

    My plans include:
    Dinner at SW
    myVegas free cheesecake at Carnegie Deli, free Mirage Buffet and free crepe at Aria
    $100 bottle at Spearmint Rhino around 1 pm
    Enjoying the various pools and the scenery :thumbsup:
    Staying within budget :faint:
    Trying as many different comp drinks as possible (going to try asking for chilled sake at Wynn)
    Win some money

    Wish me luck :wave:

    Oddly I've been wanting to snag that cheesecake reward too. But honestly I'm good after three or four bites. I suspect the slice is gigantor.

    Good luck man. And, I would say don't go too crazy, but I know that's a lost cause. :poke:

    Anyone know if you can place wagers within the viewing parties or does it have to be in the sports book?

    I'm not sure they will have betting stations like sb weekend. Not sure how it is for fights of this caliber but the betting stations at the Aria party were 1k min with a big sign infront of the betting room for sb weekend. I thought that was ridiculous but it actually made it easier for bigger bettors placing bets.

    Alex, if you get ahead this trip, are you actually going to be able to stop, and lock in the win? Or, are you going to keep gambling until you lose it all back? Gambling trips will have winning sessions and losing sessions - you can't turn them all into losing trips. Have to be able to stop and lock in a winner, even if it is on the first day of a multi day trip............................

    Being in Vegas this weekend should be fun, to say the least! Good Luck and have a blast. Don't forget to grab some Mayweather/Pacman souvenir chips!

    And if you don't want them give them to me! Just kidding. :poke::beer:

    So I went to the local casino to test my luck before Vegas tomorrow and to see if I can stay in control. Bought in for $80, had 2 free drinks, gave about $20 in tips and cashed out $150! Luck will be on my side this trip!
