    Thinking to schedule a solo trip to vegas coming up. Who has done this before, and could you offer any suggestions?

    I will probably come for Friday and Saturday night only, plan to stay at either Cosmo or Aria, and plan to play table games. I might plan to explore other casinos too.

    Thanks.

    I recommend it, really. Go at your own pace. Do what you want.

    Schedule a nice meal one night, maybe sit at the bar. Always can meet up with other VMBers who might also be out solo.

    Overall, take this solo trip to do exactly what you have always wanted to do. Make it your own.

    It seems weird to someone on the outside that doesn't have a pure love of Vegas, though. I stopped telling some of my friends when I would go on solo trips. Some of them just don't get it.

    totally agree with you- I love going to Vegas solo- but some of my friends just don't understand that, so I stopped telling them too.

    shemesh- I stay at Aria solo and find that it is a great place to stay at solo.

    What is your typical bankroll for a weekend trip, do you usually get the rooms comped after play? Do you usually go through the entire bankroll, ever come home a winner? Originally I was considering 7500, but most likely will be much more comfortable with 5000. I think my starting bets would be around 50, then probably increasing to 100 and more. I will be focused on gaining some points, but dont see the fun of playing 4 hours straight, my sessions would be much shorter I feel.

    I stick to $1,000 per night, but honestly you should do what you're comfortable with. I do have a host at The Mirage who comps my rooms.

    I have def came home a winner in the past. Lifetime in probably 4-6.

    Do your $5,000. If something happens to it. You have a reserve and you could decide if it was worth it.

    Yes, this is my plan. I read a trip report of yours awhile back, are you from Dallas by chance? I have been to Choctaw and winstar before.

    What do you guys play on the weekend trips?

    I'm not. I'm in OKC.

    I've hit about 80% of the casinos in OK.

    I play craps, BJ and HL slots.

    Right now I make it about twice a year, ideally I would like to make it once a quarter.

    Most of my trips lately have been solo. I work weekends so it's hard getting people to go during the week. I don't mind it at all. I get to do what I want, stay where I want and gamble where and how much I want. Nothing to it.
