    My Trip Report

    HI all,

    greetings from the UK.

    Just returned from our annual trip to Vegas, it's the 20th year in a row that we have been visiting and once again we had a fantastic time.

    Our trip was planned for 5 nights from Nov 21st leaving Saturday 26th. My wife's birthday fell on Thanksgiving this year so we booked 2 nights on the strip and then 3 nights at Red Rock over the holiday.

    we arrived early evening after spending 4 nights in new york, flight via united was smooth and on time, and after a short cab ride and no queue at check in we had a corner P room on the 25th floor with ample room and a fountain view. As we were both tired we just had time for a quick beer and burger at the burger brassiere. food was excellent as was the service. After dinner i had a quick dabble on some short pay VP at Bally's , a few small wins on STP made for a break even evening ( if i could work out how to add pictures via my ik cloud account i would add them ! )

    Tuesday we made our way to the airport hire car depot, picked up our wheels for the week and then traveled over to Sunset Station, my wife went shopping and i hit the machines hard for 2 hours on 6* point multiplier day. Once again it was a break even session, which whilst not involving any big wins, did have one highlight , playing 25c deuces wild, i decided to try Mr Royal Flusher's parlay technique if i gained a wins, well i did, 1st hand a wild royal flush, so moved up to 50c, next hand 5 of a kind , so within 2 hands i was at dollar level. played for a while and cashed out for $50 profit, hopefully that qualifies as savvy play !

    when my wife returned we enjoy the buffet for lunch before travelling over to the neon graveyard. all i can say is this is an excellent place to see so much history, with a knowledgeable guide (Cary he is excellent) who had a real passion for the subject. all the staff/volunteers were excellent and i cannot recommend this little gem enough for a break from the action and a trip down memory lane.

    in the evening we met up with an ex colleague , who happened to be in town, I had'n't seen him for 15 years , it was great to catch up over a few drinks in Ceasar's , sometimes the years roll back so quickly.

    No play on tuesday night, so up early on Wednesday to have an early morning session in the casino, this is where the slow bleed started as i can only see one picture for a small win on my icloud. Decided to cut my losses, take the wife an wake up coffee and then breakfast at the buffet before we checked out. Total bill was less than $150 for our 2 night stay, and with my massive play over the period i was able to get $5 off the bill. To be fair the room was comped up front, sop the bill was 2 meals and the dreaded resort fee. Paris seemed very quiet , we have stayed at the same time for the last 2 years and this year was definitely the quietest .

    more to come as we move to Red Rock
