    I drive all over Vegas going to casinos but I find myself more and more spending most of my gambling time at SP.

    Sports and Track books are separate areas both large.

    Very much enjoyed your TR

    Thanks,

    Great report Mike, thanks! Really enjoyed the photos and your wins. I may have to hit the Wonka slots next time.

    Sometime around 1989, Lawrence of Arabia was restored and re-released, so I took my (then) future wife on a date. It was showing at a big old theater in center city Philly with a monster screen. It was incredible. I think it's streaming on Netflix or Amazon.

    Mike, appreciated your report. Wife and I stay at TI 3 or 4 times a year (since about the time
    the hotel opened). Love the petite suites, housekeeping and coffee shop personnel and slot
    technicians. Love your part of Florida and Destin. Thanks again for report and pictures.

    I had no idea who the real "Hoot Gibson" was. When I saw those chips I thought, "Astronaut Hoot Gibson had a caisno?!?" (I work for NASA)

    Oh man, I've always had a Major thing for Jessica Rabbit. I might have to make an otherwise unscheduled detour over to Grand Luxe next month. :love:

    I can't believe you had so much repeated luck with Willy Wonka. I had some moderate luck on them early in my trip a few years ago that led me to keep trying and eventually win a "Golden Ticket" jackpot for 5K. I've been trying them ever since with nothing but terrible luck. Each newer iteration of the game treats me worse and worse.

    Great TR BTW!
