    My Trip Report

    This was a Tuesday & mom & I decided to shuttle over to Orleans to spend the day since we have Rat Pack tickets that night & didn't really want to get too tired for later in the evening.

    We got up early again & went for breakfast, after that we hit the machines at the Gold Coast & after playing for an hour or so I told mom lets get the shuttle to Orleans. Mom was sitting next to me & she hit something on her 4 ducks machine for 260.00 bucks. I told her to cash out since we are leaving for Orleans. I so wanted to go to Orleans since I like that kind of stuff (New Orleans stuff) anyhow, mom wasn't too happy she wanted to play more. I couldn't understand that, but she cashed out anyways. We went to the cage & I had some tickets also, nothing too much but enough to gamble on with a little extra in the pocket in cash. took the shuttle & the first thing I do is get a drink it's like 9AM, hurricane for me & pina colada for mom. We walked around looking for our machines. Mom like the dueces wild & I like JOB or JP. Well I was having a hard time finding any machines for me & I was getting bumed. Mom found something to her liking & played for awhile. While I just keep looking for a machine.. I just got fustrated & put 5 bucks in a machine & played.. Made 10 bucks...cashed out, because I just didn't like that machine.. So here I am, still looking for a quarter JOB or JP machine. Checking on mom to make sure she's OK. I found a JOB machine & put in 5 bucks not realizing it was a dollar machine.. man too rich for my blood.. SO I only played a buck a hand, I figured that would be five hands. I am not sure what I hit but I cashed out with a 90 dollar ticket. So far I gambled 10 bucks and made 100.00 not to shabby, especially since I still can not find a machine that feels good.. Well went & found mom we walked around again & we found a few machines where we can sit next to each other & gamble. we were kinda of holding our own for few hours on not too much money. But I started to get antsy cause I couldn't get drinks fast enough. I told mom I was going to the bar & sit & play there. I still had cash on me & still had my 100 bucks in winnings tickets. I sat at the bar order a drink & put 5 bucks in the JOB machine. the machine was a little cold but warmed up to me. Mom comes over & starts playing the machine next to me. We are holding our own, when all of a sudden I get dealt, the queen of spades, the jack, 10, king & ace of hearts. I had a straight but was curious if the machine would give me the queen of hearts. I keep looking at it & asked mom what she I do, her response was you had to play your own hands.. The guy next to me says hey baby this is Vegas & you have to go for it. Well that's all it took, I held all the hearts & lo & behold it dealt me the Queen of hearts. Yes siree, a straight royal flush for 1000.00 bucks. I was so happy it was my first one & I cried, my hands were shaking & was just so happy. I played a few more hands & cash out at 1000.00.. This might sound crazy but I took a picture of it. I might never see one of those for a long time. I tipped the bartender a 20 & sat & drank to calm my nerves.. Mom wanted to keep playing so we did.. after a few hours we decided it was time to get back to the gold coast for something to eat & to get ready for the show. I cashed my tickets out for 1100.00 bucks. I was so excited to be taking some of their money. I never really touched my bank roll for that day. Later that evening we hopped a cab to Greek Isle to see the Rat Pack we arrived a little early so we had drinks at the bar & gambled a bit. Put in 20.00 & won 48.00 not bad for just waiting to get in a show.. I slipped a guy that was seating us a 20.00 & he put us right up front. Very awesome seats. We were sitting with 2 guys from out East Boston. You can tell by their accents. We talked & they told me about a great steak house called Hugo's on Fremont Street...The show started & all I can say is WOW, the dude that does Frank Sinatra can belt out those songs & sounds just like him.. I loved Dean the best since he is/was after all a drunk.. Great show!! We cabbed it back with the guys that sat with us & some other people. We went to the Belausho (sp) the guys paid for our ride, Which was very unexpected & appreciated. Mom & I went to the fountains to see them at night. Loved it, but I really liked the ones in the afternoon better. Just my opinion.
    We caught the shuttle from the Old Babary Coast to Gold Coast. I was having such a great day. MOm decided to gamble while I was going to dance. Well I never ended up dancing. I stopped at a 5 dollar Black Jack table. Now I never played black jack for money & was scared that I would make an a$$ out of myself. So I just watched until the two guys at the table invited me to play, I explained that I am a virgin & never really played. They made me feel so comfortable. I got 100.00 in chips & started playing.. Well the guys & dealer was awesome & was a fun table to play at. After a few rounds we all started kidding around with each other. After 2 hours of play I have decided to call it a night. So I picked up my chips & dollar & 1/2 dollars since a had a few black jacks & went to my room. Mom was pissed cause she couldn't find me since she got to the room before me.. When she seen me with my chips she knew I didn't go dancing but gambled..I had 85.00 bucks after it was all said & done.. only lost 15.00 dollars in 2 hours.. To me a very productive day at the casinos...

    More of trip report later... Hope you enjoyed this.. Sorry so long

    Congrats on the RF. Not bad for machines that weren't giving you any good vibes.
