After booking and canceling trips in April, May, June, and July I finally decided to take a quick weekend trip to Vegas! I had a flight voucher from Spirit and was able to book my usual 6AM flight out of PDX with the the big front seats for $160 round trip. I still have $150 in vouchers left over for my next trip. I originally booked a comped king Flamingo Executive room with the hopes of upgrading to a mini/junior suite. After reading about the wait list for the pool and noticing the rack rate of the Flamingo room, $180, vs $93 at Bally's, I changed my reservation this morning. I'm hoping that I will be able to have all of my meals and beers purchased in the gift shop comped off the back end with Bally's room comp value of only $130.20 for the weekend. Typically I do 1k TC's/day which I figure is a theo of $500/day. That should leave me with $90 extra a day in comp value. I land in Vegas at 8AM and am hopeful that I'll be able to check into my room right away. If my room is ready I'll unpack and walk down to Mon Ami Gabi for breakfast on the patio at 9:30. My gambling plan Friday morning is to play craps at Paris, Bally's, Flamingo, Linq, and Harrah's. I'll start with $500 at each table and leave after an hour, if I lose $250, or if I double my buy in. I can already see the parlayed hard ways hitting!. I'd like your opinion on using my downtown comps this trip or not. Here are my offers at the D/GG: Golden Gate JULY 2020 - 4 Nights - $25 Food&Beverage Credit - $200 Promo Chip (Once per month) the D JULY 2020 - 3 Nights - $45 Food&Beverage Credit - $110 Free Slot Play - $50 Match Play I also have $21 in earned comps, can pick up $50 in match play and the D with my Spirit boarding pass, and $25 match play for mentioning Richard Wilk (sp?). I would not be playing to my usual level downtown and am debating whether I want to short play them and risk future comps. I'm not sure if I ever see myself staying downtown. I think I'd miss using the pools on the strip when the weather if nice. Circa is tempting but there's no guarantee I'd even qualify for comped rooms. Does any have any guesses to how my my future comps would be affected if I played through GG's promotional chips, The D's slot play and match plays, and spent my food credits at Andiamo's? I may play craps at the D for an hour or so not much more. My plans for Saturday is to start the day off with a room service breakfast. Have to fight the hangover. I have a $25 resort credit at Cosmo from the matching game a few months ago that I'll use at Momofoku. The pork belly bun and Ramen lunch special for $25 is calling my name. I'll hopefully make it to the pool, Bally's or Paris, for an hour, and plenty of craps and video poker. I may try a few hundred at slots. I've never played before but might try and seed the Wynn with a 2-3k coin in. I don't think I've signed up for a red card before. I'm really going to miss the bars being open. I love taking breaks at the bar and playing quarter VP. I'm slightly concerned about drink service for the weekend. Concerned enough that I may buy a bottle of liquor for the room and make roadies. Though limiting alcohol may be the responsible thing to do. In my last trip report and woke up with a pack of cigarettes on the table and very little memory of getting back to my room. I'm not a smoker lol. I'm going into this trip with low expectations but hoping for the best. I'm bring $3,000 for my bankroll and hope I don't have to dig into my credit line at Caesar's. Only 21 hours of work today and tomorrow before I can shut my brain off for three days. I'll drop the dog off at the dog hotel tomorrow afternoon and plan on staying up all night Thursday so I don't sleep through my alarm. I have to be on the road at 3:15 AM for my hour drive up to PDX.
