    Hey everyone,

    I'm a graduate student (MBA) from southeast Michigan and I've been lurking on here for a while but lately decided to post. I'm 24 years old and this August will be my 7th trip to Vegas already. I just love being in Vegas for the atmosphere and the excitement. I don't bring too much money to lose either. My parents and I just play for a little, then walk/sight see over to the next hotel.

    Eventually I'll have a freedom trip to Vegas with a group of friends and not my parents, but for now I'll enjoy the free airfare and food.

    I've stayed at Flamingo (21st birthday trip, 2010) -> Bally's (spring break 2011) -> Imperial Palace (job fair June 2011) -> Rio (July 2011) -> Harrah's (May 2012) -> Flamingo (spring break 2013) and next is Flamingo again.

    Also, even though they can clean out my pockets, I am a sucker for Monopoly-themed slot machines. The newer ones aren't as fun, but I love the older ones. Makes me sad they're starting to disappear from Vegas casinos (Advance to Boardwalk, Around the Globe, Super Grand Hotel, Jackpot Station)

    Hello and Welcome!!!

    Sounds like you know your way around Vegas a bit.

    Like you, I like the older slot machines, but times change and I guess we just have to find new ones to become addicted to. LOL

    Have a fun trip in August, win lots of money, and give us a TR when you get back.
