    I could have stuck Fluffy back in the room, but for some reason it just felt walking walking around with him.

    ...great TR. You mention doubling up with you brother's card(s)...no issues with that? You both put his card in and play at the same time? Seems like casinos would/could void that play....2,3,4 people playing the same card??? Mmmmm....

    Actually I think casinos unofficially like that. This way they dont have to comp 2 people. Thats 2 rooms, 2 meals etc. This way they just give one guy the room, but a nicer one. Or one meal, but a better. Still saves them money. And zero issues ever doing this. When you ask for 2 cards they dont even blink. But some people do play 2 machines at once.

    Great report.
    Have yet to see the Back to the Future slot machine.
    Stayed at PH Labor Day Weekend and played at PH, Paris and Ballys.
    For me the machines were giving away some nice and frequent bonuses. (plenty of pictures and video in my trip report).
    Maybe you were just replenishing the machines. :evillaugh

    Sorry to hear your troubles at the Monte Carlo we stayed there for the first time in April and the staff was friendly as could be. Hoping our next stay with them we do not run into this problem. However we ran into the same problem with the machines they were tighter then a fat Jessica Simpson trying to squeeze into her Daisey Dukes.

    I am not a slots player but I would seek out the Back II The Future machine...I love that movie.

    Do you know which casinos have them?

    Nice report. I always thing that we are going to make it up to the north end to spend a few hours, but never make it. We spent our 4th Vegas vacation at the Strat many years ago and haven't ever made it back. Sounds like you had a good time without doing much damage to the wallet.

    At least my money went to a good place! I dont think any of the CET properties had back to the future. Well, except CP in Atlantic City over the summer.

    No problems with the Monte Carlo. i like it there. Its boring sure but I won over $10K off them a couple years back. Not sure where you got this from but I love the Jessica Simpson line!

    I played it at the Strat & Circus Circus. Pretty sure I saw them at the Venetian or Palazzo. And I think most MGM joints have them. Didnt see a single one at a CET property. Strange since its a popular title.

    I'll take you B4E! We can get the buffet together. One plate though, it is all you can eat you know. Insert Griswold line here.
