    Had a $20,000 heart attack. I throw a hundy into $5 VP every trip. This is the closest I’ve gotten.

    Hit a quad on $1 though!

    Made it to Caesars. Losing a bit, but not bad. TITO system was out at Bellagio, luckily a lady told me before I played VP there. So lost $20 on Roulette instead!

    So close on the $5 Royal. :(

    And glad you were told about the TITO system was down. Slots grind to a halt when that happens. :(

    A few slot wins here or there. I’m also terrible at shoot to win Craps and fortune cup. Cromwell Blackjack netted a $220 win!

    And I’m done! Back at NoMad. Took about 11 hours and 15 minutes. I haven’t done the math, but I definitely won!

    Had dinner at Blue Ribbon. It was disappointing. Hattie’s at Cosmo is sooooooo much better.

    Biggest hit was $500 on Haywire Deluxe at Paris

    Some other hits at Luxor:

    Ended the night with a last spin bonus on quick hits:

    Not sure if I’ll ever do this again, but I loved it! Definitely shouldn’t do it on the third day of a trip...

    Awesome hit with Haywire Deluxe! And only a bit more than 2 TC in, that's the way to do it!
