What phone do you have? Your pictures are excellent
Enjoyed the report and pictures! Thanks for sharing.
I love most of the "link" type games and one thing I enjoy is the ability to change the denomination (there are usually 4-6 denominations depending on the link game) & vary my bets if one isn't paying. I never stick to the same denomination & bet size on these games. Ultimate Fire Link is a favorite. If you haven't tried UFL, it's really fun and can be profitable on any & all bet sizes. $2 bet (10 cent denom) can be really nice it you hit a progressive. I hope you get one next trip!
The new iPhone 11 Pro. Awesome camera!
Nice, will try it out next time. I’ve gone from 10 cent down to penny’s and then I hit a bonus, and win like $8 or $20
At the airport. Lost $20 at Cosmo, but got two great Old Fashioned’s. Played one last Craps game at ParkMGM, but broke even. Leaving down about 1/3 my bankroll. Not too bad, but was up a bit the first two days.
Will post a wrap up soon!
nice report, getting me excited for my trip in 3 weeks.
Nice TR and great pics.
Have not tried Bazaar Meat yet but looks great and the HH prices are unreal.
Wish we could have met for a drink, the old fashion looked good! Maybe next time
Great trip report. Thanks for sharing
Nice TR. Minus 1/3 of your BR isn't too bad; all you gotta do is add to it a little and you'll be all set for next time.
That's a cool fund bag, where did you get it?
Thanks, I made it! After I posted it on Twitter and people seemed interested I made it available here: https://wagersupplyco.threadless.com/designs/craps-fund-money-pouch
The small size is perfect for cash and players cards, etc.
I did a sweep on Monday night and Tuesday morning, but they don't mark the tables as 3:2 or 6:5, very sneaky! Limits started at $10. I feel like if you're going to pay 6:5 it should be marked clearly on the felt!
I know what you mean. Very sneaky. It's written in tiny little font on the electronic limit display ( where they set the table denomination. I'm pretty sure the craps start off @ $10 pretty much anytime. I've been down to the flamingo plenty of times and I know I was only able to catch a Fiver down in the margaritaville casino. Low rolling at its finest
I mentioned it previously, but Tuesday morning I was down in Park MGM, around 9:30am-ish and Craps tables were $5. Came back through around 11 and they were back to $10.
Good to know about Park, since I'll be at Nomad in a few weeks. I'm an early riser, so morning craps with coffee is a great way to start the day.
Loved your report; and indeed, great pictures! Nice to know that Bazaar Meats has a good happy hour--the food looked amazing.
Great report, great pics. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, everyone, who followed along with me! Here’s my usual, overly-detailed wrap-up:
- I feel like I always overstuff my trip with trying to see and do as much as possible, I am kind of craving a trip where I plan nothing at all and just hang around downtown or The Strip for a couple days and do whatever I feel like. But knowing me, there are always new things I want to try and old favorites I want to hit up, so I end up over-planning.
- My coupon run downtown was a bust, but had a lot of fun anyway! I tweeted my results, a photo, and some misinformation about each location as I went along, you can read the thread here: https://twitter.com/TwoWayHardEight/status/1216485311934414848?s=20
- If you’re staying at Mlife and have a resort credit, keep track of what you charge to the room! They didn’t apply my full credit to all my charges. I wouldn’t have realized it except I had kept track of how much I had charged to the room. Front desk was able to clear it up at checkout.
- My goal was to try to go to as many new restaurants as possible, but I think I only went to one, Bazaar Meats! Oh well, I did at least try the savory food at District Donuts, which was tasty, and Happy Hour at Bardot Brasserie, so…. kinda new?
- Still Royal Flushless…

Man, do you every wrap-up a trip!
You hit the sweet spot...lost money, but less than the cost of what things would be if you directly paid for them. So, you got a win by getting a great bargain and they got a win because the stuff cost them a lot less than what they charge for it. It means you had a really great cheap vacation and they will be inviting you back. Perfect.
And that's why I go to Vegas so often!
