Do you gamble differently when you first arrive?

    Maybe those tables aren't going anywhere, but those dang slot machines keep calling my name.

    Discipline the first day is not my strong suit :whistle:

    Being a true degen gambler when I first arrive I cant get a beer in my hand an a seat at the tables fast enough. Just to break that ice and all that build-up waiting for the trip to arrive. I only get to go to Vegas once a year, maybe every other year so Im like a kid on Christmas or Charlie Sheen in a crack house when I first arrive. I try to be more conservative with my money on day 1 knowing I have 3-4 more days and plenty of time to gamble but I let the table and my luck determine if I stay conservative or get aggressive. The funny thing with luck is its random, it doesn't know if you've been in Vegas 1 hour or 1 year when she shows her face you have to be ready to take advantage of it. If it happens to be the first day then I better bet accordingly, this might be the only luck I have all trip.

    Me too. I also know that what money is left over gets rolled into the next day. The more money saved makes for a wild last day/night.

    When I get to vegas I instantly get smashed then go on a full coupon run downtown. I bet max on slots with my freeplay as well as play the $25 matches through LVA coupon book (normall a $10/15 bj player). After I run through all of that I then go back into normal gamble mode which is $1 bet on any penny slot I feel good about and $10 BJ tables. With the coupon runs I usually "hope" to be somewhere in the +$50 range from where I started and if not I have not really spent anything from my original bankroll. Of course if I do a $25 matchplay and get some splits/doubles things can go either way but combined with the slot plays it works out somewhere in the 92.4% range in my favor.... and I'm in full vegas mode.
