    I'm about to experience my shortest time between trips to Vegas. I departed Vegas on November 27th and I'm returning December 26th = 29 days between trips. I typically don't do these short intervals because I'm flying from Ohio and typically I will stay 10 days or more when I do go. However my host lured me out in November this year for a slot tournament. :evillaugh

    What has your shortest time been between trips to Vegas?

    Similar to you.

    Departed Vegas Oct 15th, returned on Nov 15th. We left on Nov 19th and will be back on Dec 20th.

    We have trips in Feb & April, but then probably won't be back until Oct.

    Hey blackjacknut, I'll be in Vegas the same time as you (check out my countdown clock!). I'll be staying at the Bellagio on a comped stay but I booked a room at casino rate at Monte Carlo for some friends.

    Let's mop up some BJ tables together if you have time. :beer:

    Maybe you can introduce me to your host there?

    Usually, in January I have back to back trips with 2 days between the two. This year, I will be staying the entire 2 weeks. Beyond those trips, I usually have trips in March and April, sometimes June. If I am lucky, an august trip will get squeezed in. From there, it is lights out until January again. I tried to get some Fall/Winter trips in this year, but with family and scheduling, I wasn't able to make it happen. Sucks because Fall/Winter seem to have the best offers.

    Hello blackjacknut. 29 days between each trip sounds just about perfect, except I’d have to factor in the cost of a divorce lawyer in addition to my gambling losses. I’ve always had at least 3 months between trips, but it’s crazy how Vegas messes with your mind with regards to time. The 3 months between trips feels like 3 years, then the 3 days in Vegas feels like 3 hours.

    5-7 months. I would love to go more often, but even with going to Vegas twice a year, my family and friends already think I'm an addict. :peace:

    6 months which it just about right. Anymore and I'd probably get burnt out and not enjoy it as much.

    Just did my trip report for my stay Dec 9-11. Got a deal from Aria and GF bday at the same time so I couldn't resist going 15 days later for 2 more nights! Stay is same as your, Dec 27-28. Maybe see you guys out there sounds like. Are you staying at the Monte Carlo again? That is where we did most of our gambling this last trip and we will be right next door.

    Problem is, I have to work the same day I fly back. That will be one of those things I regret but I will be damn sure to have a good time no matter what!

    coming from the UK, I go twice a year. I used to go 3 times when I had more money! It's not just the bankroll I have to save for - but business class flights as I'm not flying 10 hours down the back!

    6 months is the norm for me, but I've been out just 2 months apart a couple of times. Airfare is the thing that keeps me away, especially with today's prices.

    Our regular Vegas Vacation is normally in May or June. This year it was in the first part of June and then I got a hall pass for a solo on the 4th of July. It was fun but would never do it again that close.
