    Craps uodate number 2: in for 350, out for 0.

    Heidi update - hit 50 free spins and it onky paid 70. Down 100 there.

    Top dollar $5, in for 100 out for 0.

    Vp update- baccarat bar. In for 100 out for 0.... dont really want rk atop as im leaving today.
    ..need to stop the rot.

    Story from the winning craps game earlier. The shooter must have spent 2 minutes each time setting the dice, which is crazy long. Everyone is standing around looking at each other. Dealers making eyes at everyone, but hey it worked.
    Them he goes "shit ive been setting them upside down". Resets them and rolls a 7.

    Hope it turns around for you. I've enjoyed your report and all the ups and downs. Great food! Safe travels home. Is solo something you'd do again?

    Yep, can sleep in the plabe but probably would have been a better decision to go to bed. Down 1000 on craps this morning. Just went into the casino host on duty (i dont have a host). All i had was 64 dollars charged to my room and she wiped it off. Without mrs m and expenwive meals i really havent been charging anything ro the room. Most food was covered by the 100 dollar food credit and the rest from my express comps.

    I think they take postcard pictures from your room. That's an amazing view!

    Sorry I clicked return by mistake:
    Slots:
    Coin In: 44,141
    Coin out: 43,939

    Craps:
    Profit 1,120

    Highlights:
    • The craps session on the Saturday night was amazing - in for 400 out for 3K. Great fun, hitting a Hard 6 with $125 on it was insane (by by standards anyway). Had a few other great Craps sessions too.
    • High Limit Group pool in the Cosmo - although we did not win, we were up 4 times our buy-in (this was the second smaller group) and was great fun. Total loss of only $150 for hours of fun and champagne. Great to meet some fellow VMBers and will certainly attend/organise one of these every trip going forward.
    • Queen - great gig. Amazing show - anyone visiting Vegas while they are there should go and see them
    • Jerry Seinfeld - really enjoyed it (despite not staying until the end).
    • Julian Serrano in Aria - will definitely go again
    • Slots - played way way way more slots then i normally do and really enjoyed them. Watching vlogs of Matt Bridger is the reason I upped my slot play. Hitting $5 Top Dollar for $1200 was amazing
    • My room - the view from room in the Bellagio was crazy good. The best view I have ever had in Vegas.
    • making platinum mlife
    • Had fun wandering around downtown for an afternoon.
    • Had fun low-rolling in CET properties for a few hours too as I rarely play in them due to comps in mlife.
    • It was a winning Trip and all charges and resort fees wiped from bill.

    Lowlights:
    • Last 12 hours I 'gave' back well over 1000, maybe more to be honest - at least the casino knows that if I win I still play!
    • Not really a lowlight but bizarrely I did not even set foot in the following: Wynn/Encore, Venetian/Palazzo, Mirage, Luxor, Excalibur, Mandalay Bay or TI.
    • Never made it to the new food hall in Cosmo - despite being in the casino for a few hours.
    • VP was pretty brutal (despite hitting Aces twice at $1 level for $800). Sometimes I put in 300 and it was gone with pretty minimal play - even on Bonus Poker (I wasnt playing DDB all the time). The barman in the Baccarat bar and I had a joke every morning that I was arriving for my $200 dollar cup of coffee.
    I liked being solo and will do it again - it certainly resulted in more gambling (I do not think I could have spent more time gambling to be honest, I never stopped, I never even made it to the pool). I definitely prefer going with Mrs M, and also my brother (who is a fellow degen). Solo vs non-hardcore gambling friends is a win for Solo.
