    My Trip Report

    My bday is on Oct 13...yay me! :eek: I have no idea how old I am turning....like I am not sure if it's an age older or two ages older. Hmmm...:evillaugh

    I still need to write a trip report from May. It was pretty much shopping, shopping.... and more shopping. Oh yeah and in 10 days, I may have gambled once or twice at Wynn. That's it in a nutshell. Great fun!

    Since then I have been bogged down with dissertation writing and teaching...so it is.

    But no more :cry::cry:

    Only winning :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I left the northeast a few days early to avoid the incoming storm but so far it doesn't seem that bad. Oh well! More time for me!!:Þ

    I will be honest, as I have been saying for the past 2 years, Vegas is slowly getting out of my reach on a student budget. What once was the price of a room is now a daily resort fee. What once was 2-week and 3-week trips have now gone to a little over a week.

    Vegas will remain my favorite vacation destination until otherwise stated but I will shorten trips and/or go less frequently. I also gamble less. This is a budget thing. But it is also an internalization of the new slot life (that has always existed in my generation) where people seldom get handpays.

    So I treat it like an arcade and play a little every once in a while. Or play for a substantial amount of time strategically for a comp.

    This is my first time to be in Vegas during October and so far I am loving the weather but the prices? No bueno.

    For the first time in a long time I am using comp rooms I am not so excited about just to be in Vegas.

    I was actually here for a Janet Jackson concert on Oct 10 but that got canceled :cry: but I get to watch Celine Dion! :nworthy: So glad she's back!

    This is my first time to do a live report because I am not sure when I will have time to write the detailed ones I love.

    This is my first time being in Vegas on my birthday!!!:licklips::licklips::licklips:

    Looking forward to the TR. Hope you have a fantastic time and get one of those elusive hand pays! Where will you be staying? I know you will love your birthday in Vegas! I have celebrated quite a few there, as my birthday falls the week of Thanksgiving, and being a high school assistant principal, I have that week off. Now, with retirement in December, I am looking forward to coming to Vegas in better weather!

    Am looking forward to your live report (I always enjoy reading your TRs) and hope you are having a great time. I agree with your analogies of the room prices and how to experience vegas a bit differently as the years go by. Good luck :)

    On the big boulder!

    Popped my lucky 50 out at sams town.

    Hopped several slots (mind out the gutter)

    Landed on a winner

    Banged out several wins of 50 (literally 50), and three 20s bonus wins on a new Willy Wonka game!

    Cashed out, put in more money, cashed out win, etc

    Left with my initial 50, down from a 100 high.

    Not shabby.

    Thank you all! Will respond personally later. Anyone know how I can post pictures quickly here? I was trying to post slot semi porn but not sure how...

    Download Tapatalk on your phone. I wouldn't dare do a live TR without it. Pics get automatically hosted by tapatalk. All you have to do is hit the camera button on the app and select the pic.

    Sams towns water show is not to be underestimated especially in the evening. Moving animals, laser lights, projected images. Rushing waters, right in a park setting next to a bar! Sweeeet.

    Took my 50 and really wanted to play pai gow. Hopped on the first free one and it was a ten dollar table. Quickly lost it.

    Headed over to eastside cannery and played 5 dollar paid gow with sweet bonuses for 3 hours on $20. Cashed out at 75.

    Thus i have my 20 dollar initial investment of the session and the 50 i lost back!

    Lucky 50



    Oooo I will download tapatalk when I get in! Thanks for the info! Thanks so much for the well wishes!

    It worked!

    Tapatalk saves reports.

    This is an incredible app. I am super excited. Nice bday present tringlomane!

    This is the "new" willy wonka slot that did me right. Bonus round.

    Heres eastside cannery which looks likr a can of chef boyardee outside but is reminiscent of Planet Hollywood inside

    Heres my win at the pai gow table. Bought in with 20 bucks
    uploadfromtaptalk1444057621758.jpg

    Stopped at longhorn casino right after and hit a lucky ladies paired 10 and king for 9 to 1 on my 3rd play ...and of course I only had one dollar on it. But I only bought in for 10 bucks on their 2 dollar table because i usually lose there. Cashed out (notice i am using slot language for tables) immediately afterwards, putting me up 9 bucks overall!

    Finally found penny keno which I have been looking for! But I could not stay because it was not hitting anything even while playing 1 penny at a time. Cashed in with a buck and cashed out with 70 cent.


    Walking in the casino late at night is always something. You get into business you should.not.be.

    I hopped on a new Britney spears slot that was clearly losing. Usually if i.lose a few spins i stop playing. I kept losing terribly with no hits and yet i kept playing this time....and kept putting more money in!!! 5 bucks at a time. I honestly kept wondering wth is wrong with me.

    Hit an awful bonus of 5 bucks...yet still kept playing! Down 20 bucks for the session and about 10 bucks overall! I cashed out and the britney slot was singing "crazy" really loudly....loudly enough for me to hear it....
