    I read you’re ordeal in your TR. I was in shock!!!!

    Tbh.....it made me nervous about flying with them. But I said $&@? It. It’s actually been really good. Now that they fly out of London....I might even do that on occasion.

    I did have a question. I thought Ontario’s enhanced license would be enough to let you fly over....I could be wrong...

    Thanks for reading

    Great report! I kind of feel the same way about Cosmo even though I've only spent a couple half day sessions there. I am so excited to have gotten a few comp nights on offer and that they were for terrace studio or 1 bedroom and not their base city room. Just couldnt justify paying to stay there with so many free options, even though I love the vibe. And, as someone who wears suits for no reason most of the time in Vegas, I too appreciate the crowd. I usually stay at Caesar's and it works there too, but the lower end MLife and Rio, wife beaters and canned beer everywhere and it just messes up the vibe for me. I can have fun anywhere but prefer the nicer atmosphere. Cant wait to get back! Congrats on the craps wins too! If I could win $11k at Cosmo in one trip, I'd have no problem paying full price for my room, too lol!
     
    It's been too long!

    We flew Swoop to Halifax from Hamilton after the Vegas incident because we already had it booked. I was pretty nervous about it. The Hamilton portion went well; we were delayed 6 hours on the return portion but at least we got home....a few days later they were cancelling everything due to "unscheduled maintenance". I don't know about the enhanced license for flying to Vegas; I always use my passport. Best to check.

    Your hit and run slot style works. I unfortunately tilt too many times to use it effectively. LOL.

    You’re young and you need to dress to impress the ladies...keep doing that....worked for me in my younger years!!!

    Good luck on your upcoming trip!!!

    Thanks for reading.

    Awesome report.
    Stayed at Cosmo for first time in Aug.
    Played 3 sessions here and won all 3. Hit 2 Talls and 1 Small. One session the hard ways were hitting.
    Would really enjoy playing a session with you.

    I should have asked that to be honest because when I first read it, I wasn't sure what you meant by a "triple royal". A 3X royal? Hitting 3 Royals out of 10 on a draw? The latter is pretty rare.

    Where are all the pics to make it all clear? :hmmm:

    After losing my phone....I locked it away when I recovered it.

    On day 8. At night. I hit a royal. No multipliers.

    On day 9. In morning. I hit a royal with a 3x multipliers.

    In the afternoon. I hit a royal again. No multipliers.

    Not 3 on the same hand. Only at 5 cent denom.

    3 royals in a trip is pretty good! And one with a multiplier is even better! I've never hit more than one royal in a trip (Vegas or Tunica). But I also don't put in tons of hand volume either, and I play mostly single line.

    Thanks for the great read. I should have read your TR before I left for my trip.

    I also flew out with Swoop and stayed at Cosmo for my second hotel, but I didn’t win $11K though or hit any royals

    I followed your TR. You had some nice wins at Wynn and the $5 slot. I’m still waiting for you to finish it. You wanted to tell us some more things.

    Thanks for reading.

    I love Cosmo ... I haven't yet stayed there but working my way to it. It has every game I want though the table limits are a bit steep for what I like to play (Carney games!)
    Great report, glad it turned around for you!

    I strongly recommend gaming there.....it’s different than any other casino I’ve been in.

    Thanks for reading.

    Actually I’m set for a week before the SB. Just a matter of booking.....

    I’m treating a couple of my young workers to a Vegas experience....

    March might also be a possibility....
