Older couple braved it out on allegient out of Cinncinati~Photos at end I hope they post! Of course, flight out was delayed because a terminal was out after boarding some people My husband suggested the attendant get a list of flyers and manually check their boarding passes Another girl came and stood for ten minutes then announced rudely she had to check in another flight and would bring a list back So we sit back down and wait 45 minutes Hey,at least we weren't sitting in those tiny hard seats on the plane waiting! There were about ten people who must have boarded and wondered where everyone was! Four hours of pure uncomfortable misery and we finally arrive at our happy place Now we wait an hour at baggage because our flight was late, sigh Arrived at Golden Nugget and always get comped rooms, but due to convention, we could only get two nights in Carson tower Like the gold tower a lot better but it was ok Then two free nights at Fremont, my first and hopefully last time. The rooms are in bad need of cleaning and repair. The room itself was livable, but the bathroom for a woman is teeny. Trying to dry my hair with the fist size dryer while sitting on the commode and balancing a tiny mirror was not easy. The mold around the drain in the tub stopped any thought of taking a bath in there. If you are on a tight budget and a guy on his own, I would say it's fine but it wasn't great for us. Like the casino though, nice dealers and servers. Husband played two poker tournaments a day so I was free to play slots, table games ect We always walk to Golden Gate for the Alleigent 50$ match play within 24 hours of landing This is my fourth time in a row to win!!! We always bet it on red for roulette, and I seem to bring the 0 when I walk up to table, so put ten bucks splitting the 0/00 It hit 0 for $175!! I was thrilled, hubby lost so was watching me and I wanted to play one more spin Put five split on four numbers and left my 10 on the 0/00 I couldn't believe it 00!!! After such a bad ten hours travel to get there, I was now in my vegas heaven! So I decided to play one more, placing bets on a few numbers and left my ten on the zeros. Unbelievably, another 0!!!! Walking on air at this point!! I always loved Dupars, it's such a staple of history. We went from place to place playing and lost most of the next two days I always save a little from each days money to do something bold the last night or hours, and this trip was no different I had been playing 10 cent, poker game where the dice roll randomly to pay 2 to 12 times pay Was winning about two hundred when it hadn't rolled the dice in a long time Decided to do my crazy trip bet and switched to quarters for ten spins and held my breath I got three queens, with a ten times multiplyer! Deeper breath, booom~ hit four queens on two of three lines and it paid over 3000 dollars!! Took part for myself and gave the majority to my husband towards the trip. So excited! We played even harder after that, needless to say, as gamblers do, man that was fun! If you go to Golden Nugget, check out the grill in the back, they have killer philly cheesesteaks! We always eat at Magnolia's in Four Queens, ACG has two for one coupons and it's a great value. Love looking out at the casino floor while waiting for food and betting each other who wins and who loses, of course, I always root for them to win. At Four Queens, love playing the Mississippi Stud table when the Asian lady is dealing. She got three aces so we all got paid on the three card bonus side bet, two hands later she gave me a full house. Sweet!! All in all, we paid for 2/3 the cost of our entire trip, played harder than usual and had so much fun. The last day, I always walk Fremont, taking in the sites I love so much. Unfortunately, the almost naked guy I see every time we go kinda ruined it, but hey, it's Vegas! Was watching out for a fellow poster and utube vlogger, Matt Bridger, but never saw him. If you haven't watched his vlogs, they are awesome and help in the long months between trips! I did get to meet another vlogger we love, Trooper97. If you love Vegas and laughter, his utube vlogs are awesome. He is a poker player who lives in Vegas and drinks coffee constantly. We love him, and it was nice meeting him at the Nugget. A really nice guy! Back to the home now, melancholy post trip, but have to start the savings for the next trip!
