    Thanks for the info. I have been playing nickles, but found out recently that MSS has penny Ultimate X machines near the escalator to Cal. I'm jacked about it. Thought I'd share Just in case you want to Nano-Roll.

    A lot of Boyd in Vegas has either penny or 2c UX available I think. I've played 2c at Gold Coast (6/5 Bonus = 98%) and 1c at Suncoast and Sam's Town.

    Finally up and going this morning. Getting to bed at 4 A.M. is rough for old people lol. Before coming to bed I got hit on by a hooker on Fremont. She was yelling at me and I just kept walking. She kept yelling so I turned around. She asked me why I was being so stanky!! Stanky?? Really??? I did the John Cena you can't see me wave showing her my wedding band and she started cussing me. People lol.

    Bag for room service.

    We are headed to the strip. My Vegas run to Luxor and Mandalay Bay if there is time. Penn and Teller tonight at Rio. We may use our high roller vouchers today as well.

    In true frugal fashion we are taking the public bus to Luxor. I'm not sure yet how good of a choice that will be. $20 three day pass vs $15 one trip Uber.

    Finally made it to the strip!! The bus takes a long time. ElCortez to Luxor is a 15 minute drive. Bus is going to be right at a hour.

    A few pics from the bus. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Redeemed a my Vegas $15 blackjack match play at Luxor. We both had one to redeem and we both lost our hands. Not the outcome I was looking for to start my strip adventure.

    On to Mandalay Bay for sushi and shark reef.

    I had the Ahi Poke salad and it was great. Got the shrimp tempura free and it was good as well.

    Warning: lots of photos ahead!

    We went to shark reef with a my Vegas reward and really enjoyed it. I don't know that I would pay $25 a ticket but it was really enjoyable.

    The Uber driver who took me to the Horseshoe in Baltimore warned me about the "ratchety" hookers in there. I had to look it up. I think it describes what you experienced.

    Just had the weirdest experience of the trip. Waiting for the bus at Bally's and a guy ask how much it cost to ride. Said he was a Dr from Switzerland. A two hour pass is $6. He pulls a wad of money out of his pocket and said that this was all he had. It was $100 bills. He flipped through several and found a $20 and asked if I had change. I had some ones and a five in my pocket totaling $14. He said no problem I need change and took the $14 and gave me $20. He said he needed to go to Gold Coast and then changed and said Caesers. He said he was so drunk he didn't think he could walk there. He didn't act that drunk and spoke good English. When he realized how close he was to Caesars he decided to walk and left. It just seemed strange. I was checking my pockets the whole time to be sure I wasn't missing anything. Any scams people pull like this??

    I thought about that. Placed my first sports bet with it on Mark Hunt. Of course he lost the fight.

    That is what i was going to suggest. Just spend it elsewhere. Sorry it was apparently bad luck.

    Played poker at the Golden Nugget. [​IMG]

    In for $100 out for $147. Made a little money on a small slot hit and bubble craps and then lost $40 on craps. It's 5:20 A.M. I'm finally finding a bed. We will see what tomorrow brings!!

    From my personal experience, it’s cheaper to book PT tickets via the link on Travelzoo. I have the BOGO for platinum and it was more money because they charge you base price for the paid ticket. The TZOO deal was just more affordable and convenient IMO
