    They were fine, I think the different look and feel was definitely jarring. Only played BP

    "You are a winner". Gotta love the positive affirmation The D gives you.



    Really enjoying the TR, @boxofbirds. But, stop screwing around...it's time to start hitting it big. Let's see some royals!!

    Thanks for the report and keep the good stuff coming! :beer:

    Love that old machine! For some reason I always fuck it up and bet the whole $20 in quarters I put in on one horse and lose, but isn’t that a metaphor for gambling in general?

    Drunk Vegas Theory:

    Later at night, when people are drunk, the quad meter rises faster because drunk people don’t hold small pairs as much. AP opportunity?

    Love that King Kong slot at NYNY. Not a big moneymaker but it always lets me play awhile. Enjoying the report and time to see a pic of a royal.

    Oy vey, woke up with quite the hangover, but slowly recovering.

    Lost all but two matchplays, but still managed to end the day up thanks to Video Poker and a couple other wins.

    $200 spin on my fave WOF at The D

    Finished the night with some oxtail soup:

    Won a matchplay, plus 500 points won on a swipe and win, and turned $10 freeplay into $16 at Oyo. Lost $40 at Craps. But I forgot to grab a chip! Oh well, have to go back.

    Took the monorail to Sahara and am seated for Bazaar Meat Happy Hour!
