    My Trip Report

    This is my first trip report! I’m on my phone, so please forgive any errors.


    I’ve enjoyed reading the trip reports here and also figured it’ll be a good distraction if I’m on a losing streak and need to take a break from the gambling.


    There’s a few unique things about this trip for me: I’m six months pregnant and therefore will not be drinking in Vegas for the first time! Will this be fun or not? haha


    Due to the pregnancy I didn’t think I’d be going right now, but my parents wanted to do our annual fall Vegas meetup anyway! And well, it doesn’t take much to twist my arm to go to Vegas, haha. I would be flying in a few days to spend thanksgiving with them anyway, so why not do some Vegas in between??

    Due to life events this year, I did not get out to Vegas nearly as often as usual, so I’m currently sitting at just under 6,000 tier credits (CET) with little hope of retaining my diamond status this year. But thanks to the tips on this board, I’m gonna give it a go.

    Plan is to earn 1,000 tier first night to get the bonus and then 2,500 tier next day. I’m on a limited budget this time though, so not sure of the feasibility. If gambling goes poorly the first night I’m not going to try for the 2,500 the next day. The lack of drinking will hopefully make that decision very easy haha.

    Some pics from this morning to get things rolling:

    The suitcases came out. The cats weren’t happy.

    Next update will be from Caesars!

    So trip started off well. Customer service at Caesars has been excellent.

    Room booked: Julius King (comp)
    Room received: Octavius premium king (comp)
    No $20 trick required, just asked if there was a room with a tub available and crossed my fingers. :)

    Gambling so far has been meh. Had a couple of decent slot hits and did 100 play JoB for while, but just wasn’t hitting anything super big. And I’m just too darn tired to stay up all night to do it, lol. I’m somewhere near-ish 1,000 tier, but .....so....sleepy. Man....being pregnant in Vegas wipes you out quick. That jacuzzi bath tub helped though.

    Maintaining diamond is probably out of reach this year, but I’m having fun anyway. :)

    And with all these compliments my cats’ ego is going to go even more through the roof. :)

    Started today with brunch at the Bellagio. Everything was really nice; no complaints food wise.

    Gambling today has gone better than yesterday because at least I’m breaking even! I also redeemed two $25 myVEGAS freeplay rewards and turned that into around

    Going even better for my parents. Dad hit $375 on the lock it link piggy bank game on a 50 cent bet having played about $10 total on the machine.

    We also did Harrahs daily slot tournament where it looks like my mom got third place and $200 free play that we turned into $150 actual dollars.

    Here’s some random pics from the day:

    Nice job on the upgrade!

    With CET 100 play pennies though, I would try to play Bonus if available. I wouldn't doubt JoB was 6/5 (95.00%). :(

    Perhaps they overlooked the "with child" upon your arrival. Those slots will come,through for someone eating for two!!
