    My Trip Report

    Leaving Thursday for a much needed getaway
    Boyfriend has a comped room at excalibur with 75 free play and 100 resort credit
    I have a comped room at CP with 400 dollar freeplay
    This will be as live as it can be ....my boyfriend has a goal to eat well and try different places and casinos especially freemont street
    I have a goal to double my 6000 dollar bankroll.
    We both like to drink and eat

    Plan
    Thursday go downtown and try Carsons kitchen for drinks and appetizers
    Eat other random snacks
    500 craps or BJ buy in at el Cortez #slotlady sighting?
    500 dollars for slots downtown
    500 dollars for CET properties trying to achieve diamond this trip

    Friday
    Hash house breakfast reservations
    Gamble at CET properties during the day(1000)
    Casino quest reservations for baccarat and bj #casinoquest slot channel
    Dinner at sinatra at Wynn
    Night
    1500 BJ buy in CET properties

    Saturday
    I have a blowout scheduled
    He wants a massage
    Breakfast reservations at Salt and Ivy at Aria
    Drinks at chandelier bar
    Gamble at Mlife properties during the day (1000) see if we can keep his offers up
    Night
    1000 for craps at CET properties (come on diamond)

    Sunday
    Start early and gamble till 11AM
    Bankroll 500
    See if I can get our meals drinks and snacks comped
    In and out burger then head to airport

    I have strict rules for my bankroll that I follow so I can come home with something each trip
    I use the envelope system with a take home envelope that gets filled up with the following
    Any Tito over 120 gets cashed out and I start with another 60 bucks (max I let any slot have)
    Any bonus win gets cashed out
    If go up 10 units in bj I put that aside
    If I'm down 10 units I take a break
    1 unit for me is usually 25 but during my 1500 dollar buy in 50
    Craps goes so up and down for me I just like to play as long as I can with min.pass max odds and 6 and 8 at 60
    I usually rack and take my 6 and 8 down if either one hits 2x

    Lots of drinks
    Lots of eats
    Lots of gambling

    I don't do Caesars properties because they suck in offers. I get 1k food and 2500 in freeplay at mlife. Caesars comps all my food tho

    Can never sleep before a vegas trip....hit the bank today need to pick up a few last minute items tomorrow .
    Checked into my flight looks pretty empty. However tried to make a few last minute reservations for dinners and very limited options.
    My brother and his girlfriend decided to drive up from California and join us Saturday and stay in the excalibur room. Excited to see them
    Settled on reservations at Giada for saturday night and my brother got us tickets to see Piff the Magic dragon.
    all checked in for our flight !!! 14 hours to go

    Yeah, it would be great to see what tables games are looking like on the strip right now. Rules, minimums etc. We've got a lot of hard core video poker players on this board, but I feel like table games info is oftentimes lacking.
