    I’m going to guess close to 5k a day. I had a plan to track it but I spent points and then the gift shop took some comp dollars by mistake so the math would be like detective work. I know I had several single 2k sessions in the Parlour.

    Loved your trip. Love that you're a low rolling craps and vp player...just like me. I almost always end up with solo trips just like you. I think you're the first person I've come across with whom I could actually gamble. Even when I go to LV with my SO we only see each other for breakfast and dinner...the rest of the day we're gambling on our own. vp and craps!

    Not OP, but I generally put in $4,500 - $5,500 a day in VP play at ElCo and get the 3 comp nights (Cabana or Tower), $25 FP, $25 Food offer.

    I must be more risk averse than I realized, because that seems like an easy way to win a free vacation to federal prison.

    The robot passengers seem so life-like in the driverless car.
