    Nice report and coming home with money is always a nice way to end the trip.

    Could you explain the $50 FP at Casino Royal a little more? If that for all new members?

    Thank you for the great trip report. I enjoyed all the pictures too.

    Happy for you that you brought home some money from gambling. All those fun activities during your vacation and some extra money to boot. Gotta love Vegas!

    I've never gone solo to Vegas but am contemplating one if my wife can't or doesn't want to go with me!

    Thanks for your replies everyone! Now to answer some questions...

    "Could you explain the $50 FP at Casino Royal a little more? If that for all new members?"
    -yes it's for new members who sign up for thier player's card. You can find the coupon for this in the 24/7 Guide (back of most taxis) or just ask a rep as you sign up since they were promoting the $50 free slot play on the big video screen outside the Casino Royale.

    "What is a myVegas scan and win?"
    MyVegas is a game on Facebook where you earn points that you can redeem at MGM properties (drink at rhumbar, comp rooms, free meal, buffet passes, show tickets, etc etc..). Viva MyVegas is the iphone/android app for MyVegas. When you are in Las Vegas at an MGM property and you see a Scan N Win display you simply fire up the app and use it's scanner to scan the QR Code (fancy barcode). After you scan, a wheel pops up and you spin it to see what you win. Sometimes you win more chips to play MyVegas, sometimes you get prizes.
