    I love your reports & how you play. Enjoyed seeing many slots that I didn't know existed!. I jotted down the slot names & where you played. Thanks for sharing!

    This is pretty much my view: when you go for 7/7 or 6/6 unless you get all the number you're pretty much winning zero whereas when you bet 9 numbers then 5 or 6 is pretty nice especially with the eggs or the thunder. And yes, I do like that line simply because it's easy to spot if numbers are being hit instead of eggs. Pushing the Vegas laziness to the max!

    Enjoyed the report. My mom is a big keno player at casinos and plays the same numbers you do.

    One of my favorite bartenders at El Cortez was of course a gambler, but nothing drew his attention more than a conversation about horses or Keno. Anytime someone wanted to reveal their four card strategy he would study it like a final exam. I play the six spots for our birthdays, but I guess that excludes anyone born between 1981 and 2000.

    Yeah I usually group the numbers in a corner, or on a line. Much easier to track. I'll have to take a look at the 5, 6, 7 out of 9 and see what they pay like. Of course if you do hit 9 of 9, you have a pretty nice payday.

    This was such a great report to read, it sounds a lot like how I play and travel. I don't play as much each day, but I like to play a lot of different machines, and visit a lot of different casinos. I'm also from Ottawa as well! Can't wait until my next trip in July. Seeing this report made me think that maybe I could do a report too :beer:

    Well done young lady! And I applaud you for moving to a comfortable room....I have done the same. I know many say they are only in the room to sleep, but I enjoy being rested for my vacation, and quiet is needed for me to do that!
    And the gambling....awesome pics! Thank you so much for all the time you put in to this!

    I know! I never play slots or VP, but love living the vicarious @jENBEAU life where you can gamble 17 hours per day, get drunkfaced, and gorge on great food.

    Oh no I just read your trip report and saw you checked out of DTG! Was the noise that bad!?! I've never heard anything whenever I've stayed there! I feel guilty for you taking my advice!

    Don’t! It was my decision and everyone who knows my tastes were dubious at me leaving the Strip! I think I would have been unhappy anywhere downtown. The noise was just the trigger. Plus it made me discover Bally’s which I rebooked for the end of September

    Bally's is always a safe bet the last 4 years(since no more slots ..so no more suites) jubilee rooms are pretty ok (was my home for 44 days back in 2016)....booked again and got good deal from my host (just 22 nights this time though)

    Please don't change this practice!!!! Your TR are some of my favorites, and I love the assortment of unusual slots and food porn!!!!!

    Also, I really enjoy seeing "au naturale" slot pics....not just the ones with the crazy wins.

    I love your TRs!...don't change a thing...they are perfect! :)

    (Oops, looks like I am late to the dinner table again...but my point stands, don't change a thing!)
