    My Trip Report

    Greetings from the big B. Going to attempt to update daily or as time permits being that the Mrs and I are in full degen mode for a few days.

    Staying at the Beau Rivage on flight, stay and FP offer. The details are free flight from RSW today via luxurious Siun Country. First score was first class seats... OK row one maybe not first class. Landed early and instead of taking bus rented a car for the four days so we could do as we please.

    Did virtual check -in when landed and secured king ocean view room. Stayed here before didn’t want to call host for suite upgrade as we don’t spend enough time in it .

    Bags delivered while we were churning through some of the $900 FP. Went through 600.00 conversion to $1100.00 no real big hits but just seemed as though we hit a few hundred within first 20-30 bucks. After securing a few extra bucks we went to Harrahs to cash in on some FP there. Quick hit and run with the Mrs grabbing just over 200.00 on her 100 FP through Bufffffalllloooo gold. I donked off a 100.00 through lightning link with shit to show.

    Dinner was IP casino sports bar. Had 60.00 Food: and beverage comp. IP has gone down hill. Tight machines and crappy service.

    Back to Beau for some VP. We hit the bar but with every other machine off it was tough to get seats. We wandered to the bank of quarter progressives in the rear near Italian restaurant. The Mrs played double boner and I player DD boner both had progressives for 4 oaks and premiums. Hit a few 4 oaks to keep us going but couldn’t take many pictures as phone was almost dead.

    Mrs. said why are you playing DD boner when RF progressive on double boner was over 1600.00 after hit 2”s with kicker I switched over. Grinding it out with some small hits and 4 oak I get a nice cold ultra from waitress and hit deal. Machine flickers and locked up... bam dealt spade ♠️ royal. The Mrs give me the reluctant high five but under her breath was saying “that was mine”. After giving MS 3% tax we play off some and move on.

    All in all pretty good day, stayed within our budget and put FP conversion and winnings away. It’s kind of a bitter sweet trip as we were supposed to be in Vegas this week but canceled due to conditions.

    it's always great starting off with a win. I've never been a fan of the IP, just something about that place. Interested to see what the vibe is in Biloxi, will be following. Thanks for the report.

Need more winnings they tear up toys. We’re up and getting ready for day two. Weather is shitty so no pools big dawg has a great idea. Let’s go to outlet mall. Really she sniffs them out .

    A few notes or observations. Good mask usage yesterday everyone seems to be compliant. As for the machines being cleaned that was not as prevalent as I would have liked. There was very little that I observed so used my own wipes we packed away.

    Food- let’s just say you better eat when you can, nothing late night except takeout from restaurants. Not a big deal but you just need to remember things are different.

    IHOP for breakfast and off to somewhere, I’ll try to do better with photos as phone charged up. The machines need to cooperate too.

    When you check in at airport.From my vantage point it appears as middle seats we left open. Usually they serve alcohol etc on departure flight but have suspended that and give bottled water and snacks. They also have limited free onboard movies, games, etc you can play / watch on you phone or iPad.

    Looks like renting a car was a good decision. I'll be following along.

    Hello again, just stopping morning session and completed the conversion of last 200.00 FP. I must say it’s been a roller coaster. The big dawg pulled off a nice hit on buffalo gold revolution for 690.00 collecting 14 Buffalo in 46 spins. Donked around some other stuff for a 838.00 conversion of the 200.00.

    We then found some walking dead atm’s that we’re paying her well. Going to attach some pictures and videos. Stopping for some food fuel and going exploring as the rain has let up for now. Will update later

    What are the table minimums for Let It Ride and 3 Card Poker? Are they 3 to a table? 2 to a table? Are there a lot of those games/tables? Also, have you been to the pool? Curious what their situation is as far as crowds/ chair distancing/masks.

    Tables were 15.00 and up at Beau, plexiglass in place 3-4 players. So far shitty weather so no pool, hopefully tomorrow.

    The afternoon session was a bust played a while but no real hits just enough to keep us going. Took a ride over to palace casino. First time there not a bad place. Ate at buffet for dinner and was well organized. They only let in so many people and plate your food for you. Masks in place except for sitting at your table. Monday through Thursday 1/2 price with like 40 points earned... I would say it was worth the 9.00 bucks each.

    Went to Hard Rock after dinner and played for a bit before getting beaten down. Probably low roll tonight as tomorrow is multiplier day. I’ll update anything worthwhile.

    Good morning all, nothing to report other than an absolute beating last night. Like I said about the roller coaster well yesterday was exactly that. Morning session, FP conversion, ATM walking dead. Not last night. We went through Benny”s like toilet paper. We finally pulled the plug at midnight and that’s after going into daily winnings twice.

    Today is multiplier (up to 20x) at the Beau so going to stay here for a bit to gamble. The weather has improved and I actually saw the sun for the first time this morning. It’s still cloudy but not raining.

    Sorry no photos to post from last night as they would be considered a crime scene. I will update later and try to get questions and photos that have been requested by members.

    Pool area is nice, plenty of room to spread out. Suspect the weekend would be different though.

    Thanks for posting. Reluctantly cancelled our August Vegas trip and booked a weekend trip to Biloxi (we will drive 6 hours or so) . This is helping me get more excited- something to tide me over until I can reschedule
