    My Trip Report

    I hope I can stick with it!

    I’m pretty new here, and all the trip reports kept me going while waiting for this trip. I realize if people aren’t continually making these reports then the forum has no content… that’s not okay… this is my part.

    I will try to use tapatalk.

    Solo Trip – Only in town for about 48 hours. Have two conventions to attend during daytime hours. Staying at the Flamingo for location purposes.



    Since this is a work trip all of my transportation, food, and beverage are covered.

    I am a very low roller. In past trips I felt like I was breaking the bank when bringing $200-$300 dollars. I always have a good time, but this time I’m going to switch it up a bit. Bank roll for this trip will be about $4,000. Only reason to touch the bank roll will be for gambling or other “extracurricular” activities. (Remember food and drink are covered)



    Itinerary:
    - Get work done
    - Slots, Craps, Roulette
    - See how many CET points I can rack up. (I am platinum now only because of visa card)
    - Spend $40 dollars in chips from Excalibur that I forgot where in my pocket….8 years ago!!! (well see what happens)
    - Stumble around town and visit as many properties as possible
    - Take lots of pictures (requests are welcome, hahah)

    Yes! Love the increased bankroll and looking forward to lots of slot/chip/food/drink porn.

    I am subscribed and waiting for updates. Good luck!

    Good luck! Those $40 in chips should still be good unless they retired them in the past 8 years.

    Work is done.. Checked in at the flamingo. No hookers to be seen yet..


    Lost $120 playing craps and then slots at the Linq .. Total playing time was over 2 hours so no complaints.

    Super tired from my early start this morning caught a 20 min nap in the room.

    Hit multi small wins on this slot machine

    Made way outside after preparing a cocktail in the room 1oz vodka and some green dragon

    Deceided I wanted shake shack and for some reason I walked there from flamingo.. Tried to take a pic of PTs suite.. I'm sure it's in the picture haha.

    Food was good.. Really enjoyed it.

    Tracked over to Excalibur to see what I could do with my 45 bucks worth of 8year old chips.. They still have the same chips!! Roulette it up!! And won!

    Headed out of there and wanted to head back to a CET property..

    Took monorail this time to paris/bally. It took me literally 30 min to get back to monorail once inside MGM. Everything is blurry so far... Doing good.

    Stopped in to Ballys and hit up a slot... Played max for about 20 pulls and got 20free spins!

    Now sitting in Paris..

    Sounds about right. Takes 15 minutes minimum sober. The MGM monorail location sucks.

    Sounds like you had a good night! Good luck today!
