    I looked at the picture and thought, "Poor guy. Europe to the US in that seat?" Then I read it was a 90 minute flight...whew! Nice upgrade too!!

    I have to quote @mattjb : This was an absolutely EPIC first day. Will try to recap it as quick as possible, it's 3:30am, i am up and running for over 31hours now....

    Starting with the flight, it was amazing. Very spacious seat, really good food and very attendive flight attendants. Chatted with a lovely young lady for about 2 hours while most other passengers in first were asleep.

    Flight did arrive on time, and immigration was a breeze. I was one of the first passengers to arrive at the booth and the whole process took less then a minute. Awesome. My bag was already riding on the caroussel, and away to the rental Center i went.

    Got a brand new GMC Acadia, which will be pretty fine for my needs. Was at the Excalibur in only a few minutes, almost no traffic. Score!

    Room was ready, and a nice basket of snacks and sweets was waiting for me.

    Unpacked and took a quick shower, and i was on my way to the casino floor.

    Included: Pics of the flight, food and rental.

    I had some 200something $ in freeplay and managed to net in 332$ in real money. First three budweisers where downed while playing this Slot.

    Took that money to a quickhits slot, played a bit up and down when suddenly a bonus came in and the slot went berzerk. BOOM, Handpay after about 90 minutes on the casino floor!

    I was absolutely shocked as it hit! Ordered a shot of scotch from the CW to drown the shock and tipped her upfront a 20. She was so kind and delivered even two shots shortly after. God bless you, ma'am!

    Holy f*cking sh*t, what a way to start a vacation!

    Now i am a little wasted...some more shots where enjoyed during the wait for the handpay and all the paperwork.
    Will call it a night now! See you tomorrow!
