    My Trip Report

    WYNN 12/30/2012-1/2/2013

    Players
    Me (Burt) semi new craps player, for the last three years after losing at slots for the last two decades.
    Wife (grumpy) slot player that will stay out to the sun comes up with the ATM as the only machine hitting.
    FLIGHT
    American Airlines out of Chicago. Rent a car from a local Budget and drive it one way to O’Hare. The parking would have cost more than the rental. Arrive at Budget in about thirty minutes and off to the terminal. We stop at a restaurant in terminal and enjoy an appetizer and a few adult beverages. We are off to the gate. We board and then learn that our seats are not together. We are in first class and grumpy gets well grumpy. Grumpy asks a smug middle aged man in the aisle seat next to her if he would mind switching seats with me. I can read people quite well and knew what the answer was no. I then ask the nice older woman next to me if she would switch seats with grumpy and she does. Thank you. The anticipation begins we are given some warm mixed nuts and a drink prior to take off.
    I watch the movie, The Trouble With the Curve and have a nice dinner and a few more drinks.
    The flight attendant was top notch and I gave him a $20 when we arrived in Las Vegas. He said I didn’t need to do that but I told him that the flight was one of the best to Las Vegas due to him. Grumpy agreed. It was right up there with when I was seated to next an NFL player who was actually personable and told me of his losses in Vegas.
    Arrive in Las Vegas and grab our carry-on bags, grumpy doesn’t like waiting for bags it cuts into her gambling time.
    HOTEL
    We cab it to the Wynn and were given the scenic tunnel route. I partially understand due to New Years. Arrive at the Wynn at about !0:00 pm and check in. We wanted a corner room which has windows on two sides, none available. Next time we will let our host know. Head to the room and grumpy is in a hurry to hit the casino.

    GAMBLING
    12/30/2012
    We start out on some slot against my better judgment and I am quickly down a few hundred and I head over to the craps table. I buy in for $500 and quickly, well over the course of about three hours am close to $1000 (yellow chip). I play the table minimum $15 and double odds with a come bet on every roll which, I back up with double odds if I don’t lose it. The table is full and some young ladies show up and buy in for $40,000 and bet the 6 and 8. They really don’t know what they are doing, however their rails start to fill up with yellow chips. They hassle the crew on some pay outs and were clearly wrong. I made some bets for the crew and they were very appreciative. The Wynn has some of the best craps dealers on the strip. The night rolls on and I begin to head towards my original $500 (purple chip). The young ladies leave with about $60,000 and tip the dealers $15. They shouldn’t have, I am kidding that is shameful. I could see the dealers expressions and we had a good laugh. The table goes cold and I leave with $300. I find grumpy and we head over to the Palazzo. I find a craps table and buy in for $300. Grumpy continues the slot losses, although she is only down about $300. I use the strategy used by the young ladies $30 on the 6 and 8 and get up to about $800 and grumpy is ready to go back to the Wynn. I give grumpy $300 and we are both about even and head back to the Wynn. I play some slots with grumpy and the sun is coming up and I tell grumpy I need to sleep. She insits we play a little more. It is now noon and I tell her we need to eat and sleep. Man cannot live on beer alone. We go to ZooZoo Crackers grab a burger and head to the room. Neither of us could sleep. I manage to grab about three hours and head back down. What a role reversal Grumpy continues to sleep. I will continue later.

    New Years Eve

    While grumpy was sleeping I played some slots and won about $100 on a new machine which hits a jackpot before $500. I don't recall what it was called. I then get a call from the wife and she comes down to the casino. It's about 6:00 p.m. and the drinks are being served in plastic cups. I have only seen this on new years eve as I have been there for the last three. Grumpy starts her slot play. She really enjoys sex and the city and Aladdin. She hits several small wins under $1000. She gives me some of her winnings and I head to the craps table. I buy in for $500 and while playing a half full table an extremely intoxicated twenty something male buys in for $80. He starts touching my back and saying hey buddy help me win some money. I tolerate it while he places his field bets and I roll the dice. I place my usual pass and double odds along with the come bet. I hold the dice for about 15 minutes and at one point ask the crew after being touched on my back multiple times, can you do something with him? They said they will take care of it. Luckily I was rolling several sixes and eights which got him off the table shortly. He stumbled away. I continued with a small win of a couple hundred. The casino was starting to get crowded so I left the table and played a multi player sex in the city game. The machine has a big screen where when a bonus is hit everyone playing gets involved. There were some young girls there and we all cheered each other on when the bonus hit. It was very fun. I was playing max bet and left about $400 up. It was about 10:00 p.m and the lines were getting long at the clubs. Been there done that 15 years ago. I continue to machine hop with no notable wins. I run into grumpy and she asks me to meet her before midnight. I told her I would call her about 11:30 pm. I head to the craps table and the magic begins. The table is not very full so I get the dice and hold them past 11:30 pm. I tell the crew I have to meet up with my wife before midnight. I continue to roll and have the nine from my come bet with double odds and had to hit it five times. I also hit some other numbers I had covered. I think I left that table with about three purples $1500 from a $300 buy in. I had about five minutes before midnight and I call her and meet up. She says where the heck were you? I give her a purple chip $500 and she is no longer upset I waited until five minutes before midnight. I play some slots with her and we wait until well after midnight to head over to the Pallazo. To be continued. Winning the crazy eights.

    No, grumpy does not know about her secret moniker. She called me when I was reading the replies and I couldn't stop laughing.

    New Year's Day started at around noon. Grumpy and I are down and ready to recoup. We head down to the casino and both promptly lose a few hundred machine hopping. Today is the first day for the crazy eights promotion. The promotion is based on your play and you are awarded tickets for a drawing at the Encore in which you must be present. We stay and play a little more and decide to head to the Mirage.

    We arrive at the Mirage and collect are free play and grumpy begins to play it. I watch her play Aladdin, she hits a bonus and cashes out about $400 ahead. She gives me $100 and I promptly lose it. So long Mirage. We head back to the Wynn. Grumpy prefers to put all her action in one casino in order to meet our hosts expectations.

    We arrive back at the Wynn and I play craps and can't get anything going. I decide to play slots with grumpy. Her day is more positive than mine and she givese some of her winnings. I machine hop up and down. It is time to go to the red card desk and get our crazy eight tickets. She gets about 57 tickets for the drawing. I figure I will get about ten, to my surprise I get 42. We head over to the Encore for the drawing.

    Once at the Encore we have some time so I play craps and lose a few hundred. Grumpy tells me to stop so I hang out with her until the drawing. I listen and they announce the drawing is about to start.

    The person conducting the drawing said they will pull some numbers and based on how many you get I think minimum six you win one of ten prizes, top prize being a private jet for the year. The drawing begins and you only have a few minutes to claim your prize. The wife and I frantically try to go through are tickets. One of the ladies assisting the drawing said give me your red card numbers and I can tell you if you won. Grumpy shows hers first and no luck. I give mine to her and she said you are a winner. I can't find the winner in my pile and she assists and locates it. I won $1000 free play. One caveat there are multiple winners and I end up with $100 free play.

    We head over to the Wynn and grumpy wants to play it in sex and the city max bet against my objections. Luckily, free play can't be used in these machines and she plays sex and the city with her money and hits a nice bonus for about $800. She gives me a little and I notice a dollar jackpot party machine behind us. I tell her my free play is going in there. I bring her with and about the third pull I hit the bonus. It gives us about $1000 before the party pooper. We both have money to leave with. We agree to leave with something and she does. I head to craps table and get destroyed. We meet up and call it a day. Las Vegas we will see you in July.
