    My Trip Report

    Hi all,

    I'm delighted to be back in Vegas for the next 10 nights for the first time since the original lockdown. I'll be posting daily vlogs as normal and the first is live on my channel now:


    I'll try and pop in here every day or so in case any of you have questions etc. As always thanks for watching.

    All the best,

    Matt.

    So happy to see you’re back, I’ll be watching along as soon as possible each day. With a trip planned from Canada in just over 2 months, getting your perspective there will really help reassure me before my trip.

    This already wins the award for VMB trip report of the year. I've been watching the whole journey as you have been posting it, and I'm enjoying the first Vegas video right now.

    I'll be missing you by a few days. Enjoy the Budweiser, and get some F*****G handpays!

    Started watching on the phone and switched to the big tv. Fun! Great bonus on that last slot! Hope the luck continues for you.

    This is a close as Vegas gets as a European - I cannot tell how many times I’ve rewatched your old vlogs, and am very delighted to get some new content - and also a slight touch of jealous :D

    It seems you had a wonderful trip in Barbados with Susan, now go get some F*** handpays!

    Night one was nice with the minor for $500, your early morning FreePlay was also profitable - looking forward to what you’ve got in store for us!

    My question would be how did you get into the US? Did you do 2 weeks somewhere else? I've had 4 trips cancelled now I need my Vegas fix!

    Glad you made it back, and what a trip to get there. I watched your journey to Barbados while just starting to pack for my last trip, and came and went before you arrived. I respect your dedication!

    It’s just dawned on me I was due to be there checking into the Park MGM on Sunday as well which would have been the last stop on a 11 night trip for 4 days - yet cancelled again due to not being able to justify 15 nights in another county before being allowed into the USA - you are representing us frustrated Brits ( plus other Europeans as well )
    Enjoy !
