    Wow! What a gutsy move going to $100 a hand. The gambling gods responded favorably to your betting boldness. Hope your luck holds for the rest of the trip. Man, that was a strong move!

    Sorry I’ve not updated in a day or so, things have been pretty crazy. In short, I just can’t seem to lose at the moment!

    Got another handpay at Caesars last night on HL Double Top Dollar:

    And then today at PH, whilst trying to get some more tier credits towards renewing Diamond on DSTP, (on 11k so far) I hit a Royal:

    4074FB82-CFF1-411B-893D-CCC2F18B3B6A.jpeg

    I held the Ace and King.

    I also hit for just below a handpay on 10c lightening link this morning, when I hit max for $25 by mistake and hit the bonus on my first spin!

    Think I’m gonna try and seek out some expensive whiskey to celebrate - any recommendations?

    I’ll check it out - can you go there just for whiskey or do you need to eat too?

    Was playing at Cosmo properly for the first time last night (I know, I’ve been loyal to CET for too long!) and was approached by an executive casino host after a couple of hours playing in HL. Might have to consider Cosmo next trip. Will go give them some more play later today.

    Also renewed Diamond yesterday. I ended up hitting a 2500 TC day for the second day in a row, so with the 5000 bonus should be on 18k something.

    Finally started losing heavily lol - lost $2k at Cosmo this morning...on the plus side I made Sterling lol. I’ve also set aside my profit for the trip, so if I lose everything left in bankroll I’m still leaving up! Silver lining...

    Continued giving money back last night so called it a night pretty early for a Friday and shut the gambling down.

    I got a third room at Cosmo for room charging purposes :D and my host comped everything off that bill this morning. Heading back there this evening for their freeplay draw they are running.

    Gonna put some more TCs in at CET this afternoon - think I might go and play at Cromwell for a change of scene. I liked their HL slots in ‘The Abbey’ when I checked it out earlier in the week though the room is quite small. Failing that I might head to Harrah’s or the Flamingo. I’m not going to Bally’s today, partly because I feel like it takes forever to get there but also because I’m going to the Sterling Brunch there tomorrow with my $100 Diamond Celebration dinner.

    Finally a small pet peeve - I hate people that hog machines for the whole day...my fav Double Top Dollar in Caesars HL keeps being taken up by the same lady and then she has her husband sit there and reserve the machine whilst she goes and plays another. He doesn’t even play the machine - just seems to load some credit into it and not do anything. They must be pretty high rollers as nobody says anything to them about it. o_O

    Finally got on that Double Top Dollar machine and it sucked me out of around $700...

    Headed over to Cosmo for the Identity Play drawing and got to chat with my new host a little more. She’s been great already, comping off all my charges after I booked a last minute room there for F&B room charging purposes. (I messed the room up to make it seem like I stayed :D) She also offered to put some F&B credit on my Identity Card for tomorrow which is cool - I was planning to give them some more play anyway. Any recommendations for dinner? :feedme:

    I don’t win anything in the drawing but I’m pretty sure Vegas Monkey from VF (Plee on here?!) did as they referenced the monkey lol.

    Currently sat in the Diamond Lounge again at Caesars enjoying a few Heineken’s - interesting to note I have 20k TCs (all earnt this trip to renew Diamond) and they haven’t taken any RCs from me for entering the lounge o_O

    Meant to add, this is my win and loss statement so far for this trip at CET Properties...I mostly play at Caesars itself, and just dropped a $100 at most other properties when visiting all on the Strip.

    Doesn’t include today’s play either, where I’ve played a little more at Harrah’s and Flamingo :thumbsup:

    Think I'm going to give Cromwell a decent shot next month, the more I stop by the more she grows on me..
