    My Trip Report

    First attempt at a trip report. Trip started saturday in detroit hoping to see the Tigers win the central but were blown out by the Twins. Next day we leave Detroit on spirit with almost a 2hr delay not starting trip off well. We arrive in Vegas staying at the Luxor. Our first time staying here, nothing write home about but will serve the purpose for this trip. Check in was smooth just got the pyramid deluxe room.After long flight and wearing sweatshirts from Detroit wife and i head to the room to freshen up.We head down to the check in area to meet some friends who have flown in from Az. We first head over to the Mlife booth so wife can get her bogo for luxor buffet from myvegs. We then get some much needed drinks and head over to Mandalay Bay to get our myvegas vouchers for their Buffet for the next nights dinner. Since we have had nothing to eat since breakfast we head back to the Luxor Buffet. Food was ok didnt think they had very many selections. We then head over to NYNY and checked out Hershey World, cool but were in vegas lets drink and gamble!! Get new drinks and head into the Casino. We are low rollers mainly penny slots some video poker, roulette and black jack. We find some family guy slots i end up 7.00 wife is up 50.00 but friends want to go elsewhere grrr lol. We head over to MGM to get to momorail desk to redeem our bogo 3day monorail pass from myvegas. Friends want to go back and gamble at Luxor so we get more drinks and on off we go. Played different slots iron man,wizard of oz haunted forest, clue, with not much luck. Wife put in 5.00 on wizard of oz and was up 50.00 but fed it back through. We walk around and i find the Michael Jackson slots we go to play but only 1 machine seat available at the 3 machine bank so wife plays at some machines behind me. Im playing the lower amount i think 50 or 60 cents per spin and nothing and almost through the 20.00 i put in. Good samaratin at the mj slot next to me comes over and says i need to play the one he was playing and shows me tickets that was about 1000.00 worth. So thankfully i take his masterfull advice get another margarita and sit down at his machine. I put twenty in and touch the lower bet amount so i think. Play a few spins then hit bonus get the billy jean bonus with locking wilds. Well hits for 250.00 look down and see im playing max bet 3.00/spin. Excited usually dont win much ever decide to keep playing max hit spins of 20,30,10,15 dollars in a row thinking great ill take that then hit another bonus and get billy jean again for another 250.00 win. So i have the machine at over 500.00 and fed 100 back into then cashed out at 400.00. We are all excited and happy!! Grab some drinks and call it a night being after 1am we are beat and decide to sleep and recharge for monday. Hate that this is a short 3 night trip and started rough with Tigers loss and plane delays but all is looking better now with friends here,drinks,and mj win!! Couldnt ask for more, lets hope luck continues!!

    Nice start on the slots. Were you able to get the buffet vouchers in advance? I thought you had to get them the day you planned to eat.

    The luxor they just put on your players card. Mandalay bay buffet did print you a voucher but said it had to be used within 24hrs

    The good new for us Twins fans, is that even with the win, our manager Ron Gardenhire got the boot today. Nice guy, but something had to change.

    Thanks for the TR, by the way. I hope you folks have a great time!

    Slept in then after getting ready headed to Bellagio lunch buffet with bogo from myvegas. Food was good, we then walked to the strip.It was later in afternoon and headed to the Mirage to use our bogo from myvegas to the secret garden to see the white tiger cubs. Redeem these but were told the cubs were only out between noon and 4pm that we could save our tickets for next day so we did. Checked out SlS liked what they did with the place, had a few drinks and played almost an hour on their free play ended up 15.00 . Left sls to walk to strataspere, wife like to go up in tower to take pics and have a drink. Caught a cab back to luxor to get ready to use our free buffets from myvegas. Food was great, we enjoyed this buffet.Not much rest of night some drinks and slots no big wins

    Woke up early for us to see friends off from az. Then after saying good byes headed out to grab some food but found the hawaiian pearl shop. Had coupon from funbook for free pearl and after 200.00 later wife had her free pearls. Lol not sure if want anything free again but she's happy so thats all that matters. We end up eating at Toby Keiths, we used to eat there many trips ago and have enjoyed it but today service was very slow and not many people there, food was eh but served purpose. Left there to go to secret garden so wife could see the white tiger cubs, while walking through seeing the animals here comes Siegfried talking to another couple.we thought maybe another celebrity or athlete but just a couple tourist. He stopped and talked to everyone and anyone and obliged everyone with a hug,handshake and photo that wanted one. Very classy individual, wasn't in a rush and took his time with everyone to talk and visit. He seemed so happy and proud of what they have done there. He said Roy was doing well and was at the garden yesterday. Now just relaxing a few then going to taco's and tequilla for dinner, meet up with some friends back home in kalamazoo michigan, then ride the ferris wheel, drink a few and slots then catch some zzz's before flight home tomorrow.

    Oh forgot, so sunday night we made it back to our room and notice around the a/c the floor was very wet. I wake up monday morning and head down to mlife desk and put us in another room. After wife got ready to leave out for the day we moved into our new room, same type we had just reg pyramid room. Well we were out all day then come back to get ready to go to buffet at mandalay bay we walk inside room and a/c not working. So as we head out stop by mlife and told them about it. They said after our dinner come back and they would move us to a tower suite and gave us an 80.00 food credit. Wasnt looking for anything but a different room with working a/c so was happy and impressed by their offer
