    Reader’s Digest Version – let me know if you want more.

    Probably the best trip in many years,

    • Great Easter service at Valley Bible Fellowship
    • ~50,000 Tier Credits between the two of us
    • Six tax forms, largest tax form yet,
    • Lots of VP, some Hi Flush and Mississippi Stud
    • A little up for the trip, never went into BR
    • Elton John, MJ Live, Jubilee!
    • Two nice spa experiences, Petit Suite & Masquerade Suite, lots of sleep,
    • Lotus of Siam twice,
    • Bacchanal Buffet twice, Paris Diamond Lounge snack pig out twice and a trip out to the M buffet.

    Here’s a few of the highlights:

    Does picture #2 say "Credit: $20,900.0" ?

    That...that beats my highest VP credit ever by $20,865! :faint:

    Yeah but I'm guessing that you aren't playing $150 a pull either. I'm know I'm not!

    I love seeing these.

    It does make me wonder why I am posting pictures of quarter Boner Deluxe quads on my blog though...

    Hey, did you notice that Double Up button on those screens?..... I'm just sayin'.:evillaugh

    Awesome photos! Congratulations! I know what is wrong with the rest of us - we don't start our trip reports with a review of a church service!

    What did you think of the Hi Flush game? I've seen the table, but never played.

    Three handpays the last night on the way to the room. I see one of my favorite bartenders on the way to the elevator and after we chat a bit I say hey tony, one machine for the road you pick it... so a few minutes later. 4 aces on $5 DDB for a handpay. Two more before I went to the room on adjacent machines. It was a couple hours and I fought hard but even still 3 handpays in about 2 hours.

    I first played hi flush poker in laughlin before it was in vegas and I had a little trouble wrapping my head around it. I would get full houses and 4OAK which mean nothing but I am about to jump out of my chair. Finally. I could think in terms of flushes. In Laughlin I had a couple $1500 hands so of course I love it. In vegas I have hit at Flamingo, PH M Resort and now Rio and left winning. Love the game but know you cant always win.

    The trip was exceptional but the return to work was brutal. 12 to 13 hour days but I will try to express some of the, how should I say this,,,,,unique experiences, we had this trip but it will probably be a few days.

    I was dealt trip aces, one hand was aces and kicker so the payout was 2030 credits. I was seriously down and deliberated about doing the walk of shame to the room where my wife was and getting more money or getting a decrete marker. So got the marker, inserted a $1000 ticket into the machine and a couple hand later hit this for 20300. Not even time for a CW to pass by.

    See a past trip report where I learned about that button after the fact. My son, wife and I are at the Masquerade bar waiting for Penn and Teller show, having a great I mean grey goose time when I hit 4 aces on $1 aces poker for $800. We are all excited, standing up, Hi fives, photos, text to friends and I look down to see dealers and players card. What is that?

    Now my great win is on the gamble. Bartender and son are calling slot attendant. She gets there says she can help. Look at my wife, she has already picked the card. Look at my son and say, I came here to gamble, I will play. My son and bartender are freaking out but I turn to him and say, go big or go home. Won the double up and got a tax form out of it.

    The bartender told that story twice during this trip.

    Anyway, I avoid that button like the plaque.

    What was the dealer's card?

    I love the double up button especially on a large hit (and especially after lots of goose!) - well played ;)

    SandsFan: Thanks for the info on the Hi Flush game. Like you, I think I would get thrown by hitting a non-flush good poker hand. But it seems it has the potential for some good payouts. I'll have to check it out next opportunity. :wave:

    The game is a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy. I was bored with BJ, 3 card, let it ride so this was a nice change.

    Don't remember but it wasn't very high. I will have to find the photo. Since the card wasn't ten or higher, wife and I weren't that worried. Son and bartender were that I was risking money and had not planned to.
