    I found an ice machine and poured a double breakfast bourbon to sip on while I’m unpacking. This is my first time staying at Bally’s and the room is nice. It feels big and I was pleased to see a couch. I forgot to ask for s late check out so will have to stop by later. Craps was $10 so I’m thinking I’ll play quickly before possibly eating breakfast. I always forget to eat once I’m here.

    Just call on your hotel phone for late checkout tomorrow. It is faster over phone and they should do like 1pm late checkout for Diamond. @Bigolcamel what is your itinerary?

    Good luck! I miss the North West Airports like PDX :( I will be back when they allow beer festivals!

    Hope you win today.

    I love Ballys and I love the resort tower but I hate the side looking out over Flamingo Road. Got placed in a room last year 19th floor and between the constant sirens and loud vehicles we didn't get 1 solid night of sleep out of 7.

    $10 craps? That's on the lower end right now . Glad to hear someone has affordable craps.

    Well a day happened. I got drunk, lost track of wins/losses, though mostly losses and am now standing by Harrah’s ride share waiting on an Uber to Golden gate. These are the notes I have:

    [​IMG]

    I started the day with $1500 cash and now have $1400 on me. I took out a $1,000 marker at Paris and didn’t pay it back so I’m somewhere add 900-1000 down. No good rolls or parlayed hard ways.

    I played Roukette to break even at Flamingo after $25 minimum craps

    In an Uber heading to the GG. Interpret these photos as you wish. I’m going to convert free play/ primo chips then eat. I’ve only earned 500 TC today. Tonight will get sloppy so pray for luck.

    FYI, the Resort tower is "T- shaped"...the horizontal part of the T, fronts on Flamingo....the rooms in the vertical part of the T, face east (mountains) and west (Bellagio)...and don't seem to have the noise issues...
    Good Luck to Bigolcamel...the pics are great ...I love the hard way parlay thinking...

    I always mention in the reservation to get a pool view room and even when I check in but for some reason they seem to not have any "open rooms" facing the pool, which I find hard to believe. Would be the first time overlooking Flamingo Road in the 14 stays at Ballys.
