    I'm primarily a craps player with some slots thrown in. I had never heard of
    an envelope system before I started reading about it here.

    For my upcoming trip in late May I've decided to put $1500 into envelopes.
    Here is how I'm going to break it down.

    Note that I rarely play these other games. I hope to keep very good track
    of how I do. I certainly plan on not losing all my money and I'm the kind
    of player that might only play 5 - 15 minutes on something and if I'm up
    I just might quit and keep my winnings (No matter how small).

    But I'm looking for suggestions on 2 more games. Anyone?

    Just use some self control. Makes life simpler.

    I agree with Richard that one of those ???'s has to be slots. I've never been much of a slot player, but the new games are really fun. I think I played more slots on my last trip than ever. Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Quick Hits, some kinda racist one with a bunch of chiles, etc.

    Seems like a good plan if you want to spread your play around.

    I do the 'other' type envelope system, but yours looks like it could be a nice change of pace mixing things up a little bit. I'm thinking of adding VP, Keno, Roulette along with my usual lots and lots of slots. Not experienced enough on the others.

    For sure, throw a little towards the slots! Best of luck @calcuttaman !

    I agree with $100 on slots and then I'd put the $50 on some sports bets

    Crap, LOL. Yes, it will be slots, can't believe I didn't have that on there! $50 on sports bets sounds very good also. Never have done that.

    Sounds like you have the plan now. The only problem will be where to put all those envelopes.

    Actually won't be bringing most of the cash with me. I'll take advantage of the El Cortez ATM and take out $1000 and get $50 in free play.

    That would be Chili Chili Fire. It is an interesting game that I always throw in a $20 when I see one.
