    My Trip Report

    Damn city makes me so miserable when I have to leave!!!! After about 20 trips in a 10year period, this was our first trip back in 4 1/2 years. I always love watching people headed out, bags in tow, thinking I’m here for another x number of days! Hate that walk, just took it late yesterday afternoon got in midnight Wednesday and left Monday afternoon. It was all as I expected and everything I missed! Had the stickey toffee pudding not once but twice at 2GR Restaurants. Had the phenomenal rib cap at GR steak. Saw the newly revamped love and MJ one. Both were awesome in different ways. My 10year old is a massive Beatles and mj fan so his reactions were priceless. Also starting my son out right. Become a degenerate gambler early in life! Lol, as I helped him pick teams for a parlay that he nailed for almost $300! Had all sorts of fun, most of my bill was compd (thanks GREAT host C!!!!) made diamond again by Saturday. Hit a few 4 figure parlays and while no hand pays, some great slot pulls to go along w a blackjack run that landed me in the black. It was everything u want a Vegas trip to be, but don’t always get..ie comps or finishing in the black. Got home 2 hours ago and I just booked my return trip for jan 9!! I’m hooked again! Even did the nyny coaster which my son and I loved. Jan trip is sans kid, just wife and me. I hear it’s a great weekend w 4nfl playoffs games during the weekend. Just waiting for January total rewards offers to come out. Any idea when they may come out? Other than losing a 10k payout on a parlay by 1 lousy Nashville goal, I have zero complaints or disappointments from the trip. I forgot how much I missed just sitting at the tables or by the pool, meeting and chatting up people from all walks of life. Contrary to the title I don’t hate Vegas! Lol

    Glad you had a good time? What kind of parlay gets you a 10k payout here? Do you have a pic of the ticket? Remember the bet amount and teams?

    Depending how much he bet and how many teams. But typically, if I do a 5 team NFL parlay for example, picking teams with the point spread, betting $400 pays back around $10,000.

    5 game parlay is typically 25-1 odds or around there.
