    Just lived that heartbreak moment of cashing my TITO from home base. Time to close off this TR: was an awesome trip even with the rocky start, I righted the ship quickly enough to salvage the week. I had an awesome time and found a new place I like. Down about 2000$ but had a hell of a time!

    Next trip: September! Thanks everyone for coming along.

    I'm sad to see your trip come to an end; I really enjoyed following along on your Vegas adventures. I'm considering going solo in June.....just waiting to see if Westjet strikes before booking and deciding if I should invite a friend.

    Is that Yong Kang Street? Kinda closer to Paris than Bally's? Love that place.

    Thanks for all the pics, and sorry about the $60K. It's not that big a deal, they would have withheld 30% off the top. So really, only a measly $42K.

    Question for you - ever consider playing a lower number of spots on keno? It would lower the volatility I think. And hitting 9 out of 9 is somewhat rare - 1 in 1,380,687.

    7 out of 7 is 1 in 40,000 and change, roughly the same as hitting a Royal.

    Sorry you didn't enjoy the Grand, I've been in a room where the windows rattled like that.

    Went there for the first time on our last trip and I enjoyed it. Everything was fresh and tasty. Of course I was also kind of tipsy, but still.

    Good question (I know, Royal Flusher, not a question for me, but I am taking the liberty to comment and look forward to what JENBEAU says. Hope you don't mind). I have hit 7/7 many times, but I have never hit 9/9. On the other hand, I see the attraction of playing 9 numbers as 8/9 and 7/9 pay decently, and 6/9 and 5/9 are fairly easy to hit and keep you playing. It would be nice to have foreknowledge of what numbers will come out. I see our poster favours the last nine numbers at the bottom. Maybe there is a machine out there somewhere that is catching all those right now, maybe she will in September. :D

    Fun report and photos of so many machines, some of which I have never played or even remember seeing :haha:. Thanks for the live, direct, in situ report.
