    That happened to me multiple times.
    Don't do this on those penny machines!
    After too many times, I kinda figured out that different machines have different thresholds for handpay.
    Generally those higher denom machines have higher thresholds, such as $2000, $3000 or more.
    In my own experience, none of the machines, even in HL room, could print ticket over $5000.

    One more comment on this topic: the system (slot attendants) know which kind of handpay it is.
    And as a result, they come rather quick for a real jackpot handpay (i.e. tip), but usually a long long wait for this kind of non-jackpot handpay.

    Sounds like a great first day, other than those darn leg cramps.
    And yeah, on flights first thing I do is put on my headphones to discourage the "chatty" people.

    go win big and see you in a few days!
     
    Because I'd rather be sitting on a Cosmo Terrace than in the snow!

    Curiosity is that a squirt gun on your bedside table next to the wine glass?

    Sorry about the leg cramps. Otherwise, sounds like a good first day -- getting a bit drunk and not losing too much slotting. Hope the cramps are better today and good luck gambling.

    I’m lazy. My cats can be bad. A few squirts of water and they get the idea. I have one next to every chair. They are good most of the time though.

    No cats allowed on food surfaces, no chewing on electric or charging cords and no scratching on any people furniture. Otherwise they get the run of the house.

    @Ezzy711 - curious about the regular FP & myVEGAS FP. Are you staying on a paid stay or comped? I heard it’s hit & miss on whether the paid stay rule is enforced. I get comped rooms with FP at MB, so I’m interested in what you had going on here.

    Ha! The squirt also works on my dogs. I have one next to my easy chair and one in my car within easy reach. They don't bark at other cars, but if there is a deer or squirrel ~ Squirt!

    Day started with such promise. Things have taken a turn for the worse. Can’t even win enough to keep playing. Hoping some new polish will bring me new luck.

    Never been to the spa here before. Nice waiting area.

    Don’t like these low benches for old ladies with bad knees.

    Some people are just too inconvenienced to understand basic science and extend some gosh darn common courtesy to those around ya! The thing that really drives me bonkers is when somebody drops their mask when talking on a cell phone— totally unnecessary but I see it happening everywhere! Ummmm... cell phone mics are pretty darn good these days and it’s not like the mask covers your ears!!

    Manicure was relaxing. Almost feel asleep. Considering I was up 20+hrs yesterday and interrupted sleep it isn’t unexpected.

    Very odd that I woke up with a bad bruise between 2 fingers. Can’t imagine how that happened.

    Had a sandwich and chips. Fading fast. May be a very early day. If I start winning I may perk up. If not, tomorrow’s another day.

    Nice manicure. Hope the break improves the slotting.

    Can’t seem to stop the bleeding. Luck hasn’t turned so will head up and rest. 08FF852C-456A-4612-B474-1B279E7598EE.jpeg
    It’s good to have friends in cocktail places! Lori is the best. Asked about their lemon drops. She brought me a taste a few things to help me sleep. They aren’t as good as cosmopolitan but a close second. Good to know for tomorrow.

    Nails look great! Sorry about the losses but it's better to win on the end imo, so it's coming! I am really intrigued by these bottles of wine you're getting! I want that! Maybe I can charm a waitress too, plan on heading down that way.

    When I registered at the spa I was given a gift bag. Odd that there was conditioner without shampoo but grateful for anything free. I was also given all the files used since they are single use. 0C73EE03-9E2C-4BC8-82DC-84BE673EEE37.jpeg 371C4AD1-93D3-4B6E-AE33-167C514D4437.jpeg

    Back in the room at 2:30 pm. Too depressing to figure losses. Maybe a day and a half of BR. Gonna relax and forgettaboutit. Took my semi frozen pasta and a few pieces of pizza out of the fridge hoping they will be room temp by dinner. Have some finish some lettering projects and look out the windows. 77949089-C72D-4204-AA81-B710CF3EA428.jpeg
