    My Trip Report

    Yet another Trip in the books!

    I dont want to list too many spoilers here, the Trip Report below reads a lot more fun without them!

    Family Trip, if that sort of stuff bores you, I'll let you know when I do my next "No Kids" trip.

    Enter the Night (Good Old Stardust) is me having to be a night gambler, in order to do family friendly stuff in the mornings. I still got in a ton of gambling, lots of slot porn to be had in this one!

    Two nights at Treasure Island and then two nights in a crazy huge suite at Cosmopolitan.

    All these antics and more can be had here:

    https://sites.google.com/site/lvgrid/journal-blog/e-feb-2018-ti-cosmo-enter-the-night

    I'd love to hear what you guys think! I'll answer any questions in this thread. For some reason I've had a few "fans" call bull shit on how much Free Play I collect each trip, so I'm going to start including screen grabs of my offers.

    Without all that Free Play and extra's tossed in with my rooms, I would never be able to get away with such cheap trips. This time around, between upfront Free Play, bonus Free Play and point play turned into Free Play, I had exactly $1,523 extra in slot play over the course of 4 days. Pretty sweet!

    Thanks gang!

    Nicely done report. I was there the same, miserably cold week. It was probably more difficult for you since you had to deal with extra clothing for the family.

    I also got similar but smaller offer from TI. Unfortunately I never be able to take the "early" bonus.
    I had more coin-in than yours, but most of my play was on VP, so your theo is much higher.
    In any case, your offers are indeed very generous. So I think your host treated you well.

    Always love a @Grid trip report...especially the ones with kids! Looks like you and your family had a great trip. Your girls are so cute!

    I love how you had come backs. I never seem to...once I start to lose, I just continue to lose, lose, lose. I love how you're hoping for your first hand pay of 2018. I'm looking for my first one in the 23 years I've been gambling! LOL. Great room at the Cosmo and your FreePlay amounts are awesome!

    Thanks for sharing your family's adventures! Gave me some ideas for my upcoming vacation with my girls.

    I forgot to say that I love your "Enter the Night" reference! I miss the Stardust and wish I had taken more pictures and paid more attention when I stayed there.

    Another great TR @Grid. Looks like the ladies had a great time, judging by the great family pics you took. Nice hits on the slots; $600 for a family vacation of that magnitude is remarkable. Well done!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

    :peace: :beer:

    You've got this TR thing and how to do Vegas your way down pat! So much fun following along!
    Love the little ones and the fun things y'all do. I know they sleep, but do you, @Grid ??
    I know, no sleeping in Vegas, but wow, you are beyond energetic!

    Thanks for sharing and what a win on your Cosmo digs!!!

    What a fantastic report, thank you!
    You definitely get the most bang for your buck on your recent trips with Lady Luck on your shoulder!
    Have you talked to your host yet, to see if you made Gold at Cosmo? It seems you should have, with the coin-in that you did.

    Loved all the photos too.
    So when is the next trip?
