    We totally will (once I get there! Gosh he's probably tripled his bankroll while I've been on a plane!), thank you! :beer:

    Well then my trip is going to get off to a later start than I thought. But for something that hasn't started yet, I sure have a lot of coin-in! I got a bonus today that won 5 minors and 5 minis in one spin! $1 bet, not bad for $1

    Oh, so now I'm NOT driving to the airport today, so I'm going to go see if I can keep winning. I keep losing then right around the break even on the trip point, hitting another good bonus. Knock on wood, and I'm not complaining.

    So far it's working out better than the last couple Vegas trips we had planned? But yah, I remember it like it was day after yesterday.

    Fun fact: theres an even bigger price difference at Caesars Palace between the machines and the shops, and I have found in my travels that even the machines in different towers may have different prices. Palace is the cheapest I've used, but if you look long and hard through the forums here, someone once provided directions to a little known machine there surely meant for employees where they're regular price.

    *sigh* it finally happened. Not counting tip wad, vouchers of shame, and a little over $55 in express comps, I am now down to my trip's original bankroll. Plus $100. And to be fair, I did just take $200 down, and the first time I got down below $50 I threw it in a $1 pinball and max bet, got 20 and 50 line hits, then a pinball and one of my 5 balls landed in the 100, so I did get 200 down to 50, back up to about 240, and then bounced back and forth for another hour until that stupid old aristocrat wolf game got me with a slow bleed. Oh and somewhere in there I ran about 300 in spins through the supercharged 7s game in high limit and walked away down just a few dollars after most a full screen of $ symbols.

    But hey, being in the west corner, we have an ok sunset view and it forced me back to the room just in time to catch it again. So 24 hours down, over 8,000 coin in, at least 12 hours of slots, one free meatball sub, and I haven't lost any money yet (don't worry, I will). That's a huge frickin win in my book after 3 months not leaving the house.

    There was this huge line at the elevators and I almost said fuck it cause ms. @luck.ofthe.draw is less than half an hour away, but then I discovered the entire line was for the bank to the lower peasant floors and was able to walk right by and jump on a wonkavator that was waiting there for me. Good job Beau Rivage, way to look out! (The line was due to staff enforced 4 person to a box social distance limit and would not otherwise be a thing, just to clarify) So I'm going to refill my pockets with cash and wait for Miss lucky luck to get here, and then we are going to eat something and probably mosey over to Golden Nugget and check that spot out.

    And by the way, this is a jacked up pickup truck, parked in the actual water, yanking in a half dozen jet skis. I believe it's a rental guy. He's been out there all day, but you know, in case there was any doubt which region of the country I'm in. A pickup truck is parked in the saltwater about 10 feet from shore, because how else are you going to load up a trailer off a public beach?!?!

    Just got back from 90 minutes at Golden Nugget, and it was hands down the tightest casino experience of my lifetime. Down $498.86 in just over an hour, not a single good bonus or win more than 5x my bet. But, we saw a lady win the grand, 5 minis, and a minor for just over $13,700 on Dragon Link Autumn Moon right in front of us! Never seen that before. Back at Beau for some pizza and gambling!!!

    Pizza and everything else but the 24hr food-service priced restaurant were closed by the time we got back from GN, and so I'm having McDonald's for the second time today, which is also the second time this year. I really hate mcdonalds, but it's open and serves sometuingbwith calories, so it won this time. Damn you, creepy clown establishment!

    Great report. Heading out there soon and like to hear how things are. Same with you that I don't seam to have good luck at GN either (and the last time drink service was bad too so that make losing even worse.) I'm sure my $30 food credit and FP will cost me WAY more on my next trip. Also good to see how the Beau is. Didn't make it last trip as we stay at the IP. Have a LV trip at the end of the summer so maybe will go into Beau to give Mlife some love.
