    I haven’t had ANY difference in luck using $50’s or $100’s. The slot machines don’t discriminate and eat both eagerly. Lol

    Ive used 50's almost exclusively. I dont like putting 100's into slot machines or VP machines. If Im winning then its a non issue. If Im losing, then I can cash out a smaller ticket since Ive been known to misplace tickets. Or I simply lose the 50 instead of 100 because I always chase. LOL
    Luck is equally good or bad with 50s or 100s.
    Its like saying 10 black numbers showed up on roulette so the next one must be red. Nope! Equal possibilities on ever spin.

    Arrived on time flights went smoothly except I couldn’t sleep so I am wrecked tired. There were rooms available but not in high floors and near elevator. So waited went to lift and played some vp. Down 50 after being up 150. Hit three pokers at 50c double double. Mrs Mack lost 70. Had around 5 drinks each. Fun start. Bags have just arrived so will update later.

    Following along! Get some rest and have a BLAST!

    And I too LIKE 50s. My money seems to last longer than feeding 100s but when I want to put more than a 20 into a machine. I love them!!

    Yep, and any Craps stories....It seems when I was at the Vdara in October that the Aria is almost always at least 1 $10.00 table during the week............

    When I went to the bank to retrieve my bankroll before my trip early March the bank was actually low on cash and gave me numerous $50 bills.
    I made sure to use all the $50 bills first in the slot machines and it seems most of my sessions went pretty well.
    It seemed as though the $50 bills were actually pretty luck for me.

    Sorry for disappearing!!!

    wSo trying to do the whole LIVE TR was a complete failure bar some drunken photo uploads. Back home now and will start writing a review……


    Day one

    Flight from Dublin - London and London - Las Vegas all went out and arrived on time. I had forgotten to pack some sleeping pills that I wanted to take so I would sleep through the 10 hour flight and arrive having had at least some sleep (we had a 4am start from Dublin). Mrs M slept anyway – me no such luck.


    Arrived in LAS, luggage came out (which is always a plus) and we were off to the Lyft pick up point. Car arrived within 3 minutes and Aria here we come.


    Check in was a breeze. Decided to do the $20 trick. The check-in guy was great – was delighted to get the tip and started his search – nothing available at the moment with a high floor and close to the elevator – was I happy to wait an hour? – Yes I was. Said they would email me through when room was ready and I could just collect keys, ie no need to queue up again. He then said he could credit my account with $80 dollars in additional Food and Beverage credit – nice touch and well worth a 20 dollar tip. (we already had a $100 dollar F&B Credit and two nights comped).


    Went to Lift bar and played some video poker – nothing exciting happened and we had a couple of drinks before getting keys. 29th floor and close to elevator.


    The room was nice – good size – not much of a view but I was not expecting something spectacular as had heard the views in the Aria are not amazing. Mrs M’s first impressions were not great. She preferred the Wynn, Encore, Palazzo, Venetian and Bellagio to the room. It wasn’t going to affect the vacation or anything but felt the other rooms were more luxurious and opulent.


    Anyway, quick shower and I was straight down to continue gambling while she took her time getting ready. We had no plans for the first night bar spending some time getting to know the hotel and casino.


    I went straight back to Lift bar and played some VP. Again, Did ok 200 in and hit a poker of 5s at 50c for 125 dollars and probably finished around 100 down. Mrs M joined me and we played some more, going up and down and then headed over to Five50 pizza. We ordered the Warm Spinach Salad (which was absolutely delicious) and the Truffle Pizza to share – Mrs M loves truffles so this was me being the good husband (and it was my birthday). Anyway, I didn’t really read the menu properly and if I had I would not have ordered the pizza – it was a white sauce pizza and it had potato in it – “but you’re from Ireland” I hear you scream and you guys have potatos in every meal and when your not eating them you’re talking about them – well no – they don’t work in a pizza. I got the waiter to bring over some pizza sauce and struggled on J. I ordered a glass of Justin Cabernet Sauvignon – which I love, and Mrs M had a glass of some white wine.

    I actually liked the restaurant – good staff, nice casual atmosphere, pizza base was good the problem was my not reading the menu correctly.


    We gambled some more, walked over to the CVS and got some water for the room (to avoid the 20 dollar bottles in the room) and also to get some plastic cups and mixers for the vodka I had bought in Duty Free. Its always handy to have a drink to walk to the elevator with so you are not looking for CWs straight away.


    Mrs M hit the hay at around 11pm, and I then went on a great streak on VP. Started at Lift Bar, moved to Alibi, and then finally to Gem bar. Alibi was good, pretty loud and got fairly crowded when I decidied to leave – very attractive barstaff. I really liked Gem bar – great bar staff, good atmosphere and more importantly the machines loved to give out pokers. 6 photos are below – as I mentioned earlier I normally play at the 25 – 50c level so it was great fun to step up to the 1 dollar level. The reason why the credit amount keeps going back down is not because of bad luck but rather because every time I needed to us the bathroom I cashed out the machine – put a napkin on top of the screen, and asked the barman to watch my seat. I had a great night, drinking gambling and went to bed up $1800 for the first night which was amazing but unfortunately this winning streak was not going to move into the next few days.... you can see the photos above that I posted "Live" :)

    Day two will follow
