    My Trip Report

    Hi Everyone,

    Let me start by saying that I'm glad that I'm going back to Vegas in January as this trip sucked balls in almost every way.

    I'll start with the flight, holy crap! The couple next to me kept eating like pigs from breakfast to lunch. They were ordering everything but the icing on the cake was that fucking pizza. The lady next to me ordered a pizza and it reeked of smelly feet. I love Pizza and the smell of mozzarella but I have no fucking idea what kind of cheese they put on their pizzas but man did it stink. Then of course after eating like a pig for breakfast, she could not finish the pizza and put it under the seat in front of her and fell asleep. WTF!!! You couldn't throw it out before taking a siesta. Damn I was so pissed that instead of holding my farts during a long flight, I was bombing them away. The smell of that fucking cheese drowned out my beautiful bodily odor.

    I was travelling with 2 other buddies who turned 50 which was the primary reason of the trip. 1 was a Vegas Virgin who was looking forward to the mini vaca. We touch down, grab our carry ons and head off to our awaiting limo.......hey wait, where is he, we search hi and low and nothing. Man I was pissed off. We wasted at least one hour waiting and looking without success. Grab a cab and head off to The Mirage.

    Go to the VIP lounge to check in. Very nice, had comp beers/wine/soda/coffee throughout the trip. Anyways, head off to our 2 bedroom tower suite. Get in the room and my buddies start freaking out as their is one king bed in the add on. They said that they are not sleeping together, lol. Head back to the VIP lounge and have them change our room to a one King (me) and 2 Queens (them)

    Go have lunch then I take my buddies to the pool area so that they leave me alone while I gamble during the day. Nice hot weather for some Canadians and we mention that we will have the pool to ourselves throughout the trip.

    Well, that was the end of that. It Fucking rained from Wednesday morning through Saturday morning. Fuck!!! What a bummer. The weather was completely crap. It was frustrating as we could not do much outside as it was also cold. Cab drivers were telling us how they had not seen this much consequetive rain in Vegas in Decades.

    We still managed to walk the strip and visit many Casinos. Regarding gambling, I did better than I thought that I would. My bankroll lasted the full 3 days. I would have done alot better if it weren't for those stupid WMS piece of shit machines. I can't understand how people win on those things. I played them because I've seen some Videos on this site and they looked like fun. I could not win dick on them. Always played max bet and rarely got a bonus. So, I will not play those machines in January when I go back. Believe it or not. I made money on KENO. I got 5 on 5 6x at a bet of 4$ for 870$ a shot. I then got 5 on 5 with 2 Eggs (Caveman) for 3440$ Hand pay!!!

    If I take into consideration the refund that I will be getting for the 30% witheld amount, I only lost under 1000$. Not bad for 3 days. I swear those WMS machines ate about 2K easily with no fun playing them.

    I also played Let it Ride at the tables. I like that game.

    I wanted to do a quick checkout and realized that I had a 700$ charge on my account. When I called they mentioned that my host could not comp me the last night. WHAT!!!!! It seemed that he only booked me for 2 nights by mistake. Luckily I keep all my e-mails and had confirmation for the 3 nights. They contacted the host and everything was cleared up quite quickly.

    And.................I swear and I'm not lying when I tell you that again, yes again, the Fucking person next to me ordered a fucking cheese, feet smelling pizza again. Unbelievable.

    Cheers!

    Looking forward to my January trip with the family.

    The good part about this trip is that I accumulated 135K tier credits. I should hit Plat again after my January trip. Yahoo....

    BTW...I got my hand pay the last night and I had 180$ left in my wallet. I was going to play 100$ more dollars and keep 80$ for the Duty Free.

    All in all not a bad trip, but the weather could have been better.

    Good point on the tier-credits... I've gotten to the point where I refuse to gamble if I don't have a card... I go in with the crap attitude, I'm gonna lose it anyways, might as well get the points.

    Not too sure how it works. But I noticed that my points accumulated after playing those specialty machines were really low. I got the majority of my points on KENO. You can recyle 100$ easily on Keno. For example, I was betting 4$ and 2 out of 5 numbers gives you your bet back. So, I was getting alot of points from 100$ in a Keno machine then a WMShit Machine. And it was significant.

    If you go on a good run, 100$ can last you an hour at 4$ bet per shot. Therefore getting you alot of Tier credits in the meanwhile.

    WOW! Sorry for the bad trip. I would have freaked out too about the random charge. Gross about the pizza. But that was a sweet win.

    I have to say...you've got BALLS to play Caveman Keno for $4 a whack!
    and congrats on that hit! My biggest was 5/5x10, but I was only playing 40c (for $840)

    We were in Vegas the same days, in the rain. There was a small river going between Harrah's and the Quad.

    Tim, I tell you. Caveman has been so good to me. It always saves the day. In May, I got 7 on 7 for 8K at a bet of 4$. Maybe I'm just lucky on it. Also, like I said, the $$ gets recycled and inturn, gives you alot of tier credits.

    Ty, was it bad or what!!! Did you do anything outside? We ended up going downtown after convincing my friends that we had to do something and not just stay at the mirage.

    Yup, I agree with you there..I play Caveman a lot when I just want to drink and not think...and I've had some good hits on it (I play a 5 or 6 spot depending on which version; keeps you playing on a small amount of money for a LONG time)

    Hi Jen,

    Yeah, I'm going to stay away or if I do play them, I will play them at a lower bet. I actually enjoyed Buffalo, not sure what make that is. Don't get me wrong, I like to gamble and don't expect to win everytime. But I like to spend some fun time on a machine. It was like every WMS machine just ate my $$$ without having me play it a little. I like to play machines that bring you up and down even if at the end there are no more credits, but at least you had fun losing your $$ lol...

    and thus the problem with playing Keno... have never ever won anything Keno so I wouldn't know what resembled a "good run"

    $100 on Keno would last me 5 minutes on those machines

    Nice a comped 2 bedroom at mirage sounds like a good deal for 3 nights.

    Any of the themed or progressive machines now on m life are $10 per 1 point. Which is a real bitch since they are taking out alot of the $3= 1 tier credit

    Not much. Took cabs from one casino to another. We usually walk and use the bus.

    Buffalo is Aristocrat. I feel like I also do a lot better on IGT or Aristocrat than WMS when I do play slots.

    I got sucked into "Bierhaus" again in Tunica. I have still have yet to trigger the bonus on that game. :grrr:
