After 25+ years of going to Vegas, I finally got my first W2-G. Ended the day yesterday playing off $253 in free play at a $1 VP machine. After about 25 spins or so I'd worked it up to $574 playing Double Double Bonus Poker. Hit "Deal" and got 3 aces. Hit "Draw" and the machine locks. Glance down. "Call attendant." Look more carefully. 4 aces. Look even more carefully. Got the kicker. $2000 and a grin from ear to ear. After a little paperwork and $20 to the attendant I finished off the free play and walked away with $2503. The wife didn't believe me until I showed her the paperwork. She can make fun of me, of course. She could paper a small room with her W2s. What does it mean when not only cocktail waitresses recognize you and call you by name, but so do the valets? I mean, we live 3.5 hours away. It's not like we're in Vegas every weekend.
