    No City Rooms for us low rollers in East Tower. It's all good though, every time I grabbed a Lyft it was a quick walk out to the rideshare area.

    Summary

    GREAT TRIP

    Saw 2 awesome shows, collected all the TR badges at CET properties... despite no royal, had some great VP sessions and maintained my Sterling status. Had some fun at craps (although AGAIn didn't play as much as I should) and a great UTH session heads up with the dealer.

    As outgoing as I am to hit shows solo on trips, my food intake is more of a necessity while drinking heavily than something I pursue.. so I'm still happy I had some In-N-Out and Secret Pizza twice. Quite a roller coaster too, after being up a little day 1 and 2, I tanked heavily on football Sunday and made it ALL back my last day.

    Just counted my bankroll envelope and finished -150 or so total. That includes the 100+ i tipped bartenders/cocktail waitresses. Brannon became my new good friend at the Cosmo sportsbook.

    I never ended up talking to a host on duty because I feel like I play low, but I'm truly curious. Table gaming I played craps maybe 4 hours at $100 average bet, and 4 hours UTH at $100 average bet over 3 nights. The rest was VP which I'm not sure how it's factored, since you get tier points through that, but my average bet was at 50c level for 18 hours or so. At a minimum I earned myself my next free Sterling night, we'll see if I get a purple envelope in the mail.. it's been a loooong time.

    Overall, had a blast. While I was dragging by the last day due to hard boozing 3 days straight and not sleeping well, I'm already ready to plan my next trip. The next will be with either my buddy C and or cousin J from previous TRs. We'll see.

    Thanks again for reading!

    Prohibition Bar at GG has 7/5 ACE$ BP. And I believe all their .25 games are progressives which top out at $1199.

    I use to go to Presque Isle Downs all the time as it was my local coming from Meadville Pa. Small world and a small casino! I would usually just pass it and make the drive to Seneca/Salamanca as they comped me very generously and had gorgeous hotel rooms for an Indian casino. Somehow I missed most of this TR, so reading now to see how it ended.
