I know I can be long-winded. I'll do my best to be brief but accurate. Not much to report from yesterday, our first day here. Was up at 2 a.m. and left out of Boston. Everything went extremely smooth and we got checked in about 3:30 Vegas time. We got a complimentary upgrade which I posted in the twenty dollar trick section. Everybody we've met has been wonderful. By the time we skulked around, had dinner, and walked the strip a short ways, I was way too tired to gamble so I turned in reasonably early. This morning I started out playing Blackjack at Caesars. I figured I'd try to start accumulating my comps there. Although the cards were cold at first, I walked away $100 ahead. The craps table was too busy for my liking so I tried bubble craps. This was only my second time ever playing bubble craps. I seemed to have a problem with selecting the chip amounts, so my bets were messed up. I ended up ahead about $40 when out of frustration I cashed out. Now I hit the craps table. There was a little bit more elbow room so I was more comfortable. In short, the player 2 places to my right had a monster roll and went for about an hour. Now I am a very conservative player but at some point my 6 was up to $90 and my 8 at $60 (along with a healthy amount on other numbers). This was after I had taken my bets down to the minimums after a reasonable role thus far. The player to my right cashed in and it was my time to roll. Although I didn't role as well as the other player, I hit 3 points which all happened to be tens. When all was said and done, I'm up a total of $650 so far. I picked up a total rewards Visa which gave me two tickets to a buffet. For a total of $30 up charge, we will have dinner at Bacchanal tonight before we head out to Cirque du Soleil. So far, so great.
