    @Cageet just to update. I logged into my Wynn account and no Free Credit is available. I will inquire next week as it does say it expires 72 hours after loaded. I guess the amount can vary based on play since no amount is listed. Is that correct?

    Yes, that is correct. The birthday free credit seems intentionally vague which seems to indicate it is based on play.

    As for why it doesn't show up online when you log into your account... I'm not sure what's going on there. Maybe the online account doesn't account for all sources of free play? I've never logged into my account after a promotion free play was loaded to double check the balance online. I do look at it on the machine I'm about to run-through, usually within 5 minutes of me receiving it.

    Sorry it’s been non-stop since arriving in LA. Sunday was a baby shower, Monday was the Beach, and yesterday was shopping and a early Birthday dinner with my son and family as today I am flying back to Vegas because the 14th is also my Best Friends birthday. Our friends (16) arrive in Vegas today as well. My hubby (who is from LA)and the boys are spending one more day here and driving back into Vegas tomorrow. Be prepared for pic dumps soon! Today’s agenda: flying getting friends settled at Venetian, CP. Drinks at Vanderpumps. We are unsure about dinner. Open to suggestions...nothing too fancy but no “food courts” either. Lastly, my friend loves to sing so hoping to hit up the piano bar at NYNY, Harrah’s, or Karaoke at Ellis Island. If you see us come say hi, and buy us a drink :goofy:

Plans to hang with the family during the day before they dropped me off at LAX for my flight. Then I started getting texts that my flight was delayed. :cry::cry:! My non-stop was now delayed almost a hour and a half. Boo! Anyway over the next few hours the departure time changed 3 times as well as the Gate. It could have been worse original take off time was 5:20, we were boarded and pulling away at 6:30. I landed at 7:30. Checked my friend into the Venetian (2 Queen Luxury “Suite”), and I checked into the Wraparound Terrace Suite at Cosmo. Both included FB/FP both comp’d. Due to arriving at different times we didn’t end up doing karaoke or the piano bar. We walked the strip and hung out at the bar. I did break my losing streak with two wins at CP. Two of my friends will remain here for the remainder of the stay. Today’s plans: Birthday Dinner for my son at Sugar Factory. Gambling at Venetian and Cosmo. We might try Karaoke tonight instead.

    So this Trip Report was a complete bust. Sorry. I knew this would be a complicated trip with so many people coming but it SUCKED! This was a much needed vacation so lesson learned no more trips with 28+ people. But in an effort to share my experiences. I’m going to finish it out day by day with the occasional pic here and there.

    To back track, I originally flew in on July 10th for my Seven Stars Retreat. My Host put me in a two-bedroom suite (Forum Tower) for 8-days. I also attached my Signature Experience ($500 Portfolio Credit) to this trip. I was able to purchase all 4 plane tickets for my family with the $1200 airfare credit. July 10- was the night of the UFC fight and the Garth Brooks Concert. Vegas was jumping! As I noted previously I did my status match at Wynn, received the $300 Birthday Food Credit, and had a fabulous meal at Allegro. Update: I did not receive any play credit. They state it is based on previous play history.

    68852DD8-7577-46D7-9B21-50E1C8EF834A.jpeg Next day, July 11th. We headed to LA to spend time with my husband’s family. Prior to leaving we had breakfast in the food court at Caesars Palace. The Barbeque place, Halgal (Greek), and pizza place all have seven star priority line. SB and Vanderplump does as well. I used my drink/food vouchers typically at Stadia (love the hammerfist). You can bring outside food in. The drinks are strong, and if you are playing Video Poker they will comp you the same expensive drinks!! 68852DD8-7577-46D7-9B21-50E1C8EF834A.jpeg

    On July 14th, I returned to Vegas! Got everyone settled in their rooms, and ended my night gambling at Caesars Palace. Posted pics previously of my two hand pays.

    On July 15th, my hubby and boys drove back to Vegas from LA. Last minute change in plans for my son’s birthday Dinner. We went to Guy’s Kitchen & Bar at the Linq. Be advised there are no reservations here and no priority seating. I went by when they opened and added our name to the list. We enjoyed the food. My son and his friends liked the fish bowl drinks. Checked my other son and his friends into a two Queen executive suite at MGM. Played my $975 in FP from Mlife at the Bellagio. Converted it into $1350. Better than nothing! Pics are from dinner at Guys. 8A0F5C0F-AAE8-4840-A5D9-B307C1C921E5.jpeg E57825F7-CEAC-4C01-AF01-1D2C42C11CEE.jpeg

    I almost forgot we did Vanderplump Cocktail Garden. Such a fun experience. Very pretty place! The drinks were great and so was the hummus place. They also have seven Star priority line.

    Friday July 16th was reservations at MAG and Cabana Day! This was my first time at MAG service was amazing! I used a Diamond Certificate here. From there, we checked into our Cabana at the Linq. Soooo: positives it’s a 21+ over pool only, music is decent, and cabana was clean. Negatives: drinks were weak, safe didn’t work and when inquired about switching it out he said most of them don’t, slow service. **last year we rented a Cabana at Cosmo. For anyone that has rented from there they are hard to beat! They provide exceptional service. Including complimentary fruit plate, and stocked first round of waters/juices. They ensured when ice melted they refilled. They were constantly at the cabana checking on our needs! If you have the money it’s the way to go. If you have a larger party this cabana was for 12. You might consider this option. 274286E2-16EB-4E3C-B8C8-019A0B29962E.jpeg

I had a 7pm reservation at Hell’s Kitchen that we canceled after needing a nap from the pool day. We later decided on Gordon Ramsey Burger and let me tell you that was the best burger and fries I have ever had!! They too have Seven Stars Priority seating. I literally walked up to the desk with a line of probably 30-40 people and they sat me immediately.

    My favorite time to hit the casino is around 7:30am when lots of people are still in the bed. I headed 1DFAFB8E-3D07-4D71-A00A-84C8634A9A47.jpeg down Saturday morning to hit up one of my faves- Invaders of Planet Moolah! And guess what I captured the Unicow!! 484 spins for a $2300 jackpot!

    Saturday night consisted of more great food and drinks! We hung out at Clique lounge at Cosmo. Had the Verbena at Chandelier Bar. Dinner was at Wolfgang Puck’s Bar & Grill at MGM. This was my least favorite dinner. I think it’s due to location. Restaurant is open to casino so very loud and tables are very close. Atmosphere seems very crowded.

    6B294C96-3722-4170-8239-1ADB1BFC7342.jpeg July 18: Last Day :thumbsdown:!! Even though this vacation has had its challenges I’m not ready to go home and back to reality. Spent the first part of the morning packing. Met family at Eggslut. Truffle hash browns are AMAZING!! Also the Birthday cake at Milk is yummy too! Once I got all checked out I decided to make a quick stop in the Casino to see if I could capture the Unicow again before heading over to CP to ride in limo with my friends to airport. AND GUESS WHAT???! I DID! Twice in one trip on two different banks of machines in the same hotel! :headbang: This time 193 spins and $1700 jackpot.

    This is belated but I LOVE your nails! Do the colors have a personal significance for you? Not that you need one as they are so pretty but I was curious.

    We had a direct flight home last night. Unfortunately it was delayed from 4:50p to 7:00p and then after they boarded us we sat on the tarmac waiting on the Captain to arrive from another flight. We got home around 2:30 this morning.
