    Very much enjoyed your summary.....I like live reports also, but some seem to dwindle off after I have invested time in reading the start. So reading a summary all at one time is my pleasure.
    GREAT hits on some of my fave machines!

    Great report! I may follow this method if I ever do a quick weekend trip.

    Congrats on all the hand pays!

    I would rather have a machine that didn't hit anything than a machine with a bonus that paid nothing. After all when you get the bonus, your excitement reaches maximum levels. So it is a huge let down to play 5 a spin to get 11. Especially with two digit free spins!

    Gonna need to try that cheese fondue.

    Just curious. When you use drink tickets for the more expensive drinks, do you tip extra? I usually redeem them for beer and tip a couple bucks for each one. I figure with the more expensive drinks, the tips go up? I just ask because I never thought of this until now but will definitely be trying out some new drinks next time I go.

    Sitting at Chandelier for almost six hours... I think I had about four cocktails and six Fiji Waters. I left $20 halfway through the session and $20 when I left. I don't know if that's cheap, appropriate, or generous.

    When I sit a long time, I also try to consider that I'm taking a seat that could generate tips if it turned over frequently.

    Last time we went to Vegas was Christmas 2019 and we stayed in Cosmo. Virgin holidays here in the UK have Cosmo as a 'favourites' hotel so we had 2 free buffets each day for 8 nights as part of the deal. Think we lasted until the Tuesday until we had buffet fatigue at breakfast and just had a light plate! Was a great deal because on the first day the hostess told us it acted as a line pass as well so extra score!
