    So I went downstairs to the casino for another hour to enjoy the lack of smoke and crowd and carry on a long standing tradition of low rolling without using my players card on checkout day just to pass the time until it's time to go. I brought only my remaining tip wad, which was quite substantial after all the play in that 3 days. I found a lucky Dragon link that heated up for me, won hold and spins twice each on 1c and 2c denominations, then moved to 5c and got a free game bonus that paid another $40 give or take, cashed out, then hit a low progressive on my mooncakes ATM on a $5 bill, cashed again, and I'm leaving for the airport then home in a few minutes with a grand total of less than $100 down on my entire trip bank roll, which is great, because I'm going to Las Vegas in 18 days!!!!!

    Thanks for sharing. It was so much fun reading both of yalls trip reports at the same time!
    And congrats on the SATC win! I love how often I see guys playing that game who only know the characters because of the slot

    Whenever a guy is playing and I can't get on the machine, I always want to say "Shouldn't you be playing craps or something" to try to shame him off lol

    Great reports @MCann and @luck.ofthe.draw. I only just this second realized your username is MCann; I'd read it as McCann all this time, duh.

    Geez @breanna61 and @Vegas Erica - I was thinking about trying SATC (wifey was a big fan of the show) but now I’d be looking over my shoulder for one of you to come & shame me. Women are tough!

    For the record, I have no idea who the characters are, and I dont know whose shoes paid me all that money in spite having been told multiple times. But I have learned now from my own TR, and life experience, that you want nothing to do with the ring. Ring, bad. I also know you want the Mr Big progressive, but now I know you can do much better than that. It was only $512 when someone's shoes paid $972. So what the hell. I dont even know what I want except that I dont want the ring and I want it to pay a lot of money!

    @MCann Yes!! I know it was said before... the shoes and the dress bonuses are the best bonus rounds for that game! So exciting to see that big of a win on the game

    Yes. In Caesars Palace. If you stand at the edge of the casino facing the archway to the Forum shoppes...the parking garage to your left and an exit to your right. Go right through the exit doors (there's like 8 of them like it's a well used area on the other side but it's not, lol) You end up outside in the back of Caesars in a walkway between the employees garage and what appears to be their entrance to the casino. Walk about 20 yards and there's a coke machine outside on your right...$1 per bottle.

    Thanks! I agree! Huge win when my biggest expense for a 3 day weekend with 5 digit gambling action was literally gas for my car. So my first thought was, I could pad my Vegas bankroll quite nicely (already had a separate budget set aside for that), but somewhere during my 6 hours of driving today, the thought occurred to me that I could save a little, pad the bank roll just a little, and rent another Ferarri in Vegas. Hrmmm... What's a guy to dooooo....:thumbsup:
