    That's good to know. Last trip I played $10 craps at B for about an hour and did fairly well. It was earlier in the day I believe, but I was surprised to find $10 there on a Thursday. Was hoping to get back. I'm willing to play $15, but really enjoy $10. Thanks for the info and thanks for the TR. Enjoying following along before my own trip to paradise!

    I enjoyed so many Peronis downtown that I emptied the keg at Golden Gate!! switched to ketel and cranberry

    First craps run I was the sole shooter which is always dangerous...made a couple points but the 7s hurt me playing max 10x odds. Lost 1k first session.

    Played some VP, up and down, lost 100.

    Played blackjack with my 50 in promo chips and 50 in match play. Bought in 500. First shoe garbage. Second and third were awesome. I was betting from 30 all the way up to 400. Best hand was playing two hands 150 each and Dealer showing a 6. First hand is 6s...split. Dealt a 5. Double. 19. Ok. Second hand 6s. Split again. 9 and 6 for 15. Stay. 8 and 6 for 14. Shit! Other hand 14. Stay.
    Dealer turns over a 5 for an 11. SHIT! Ace followed by a queen. thank you Ace for saving my hands!!! 750 win!
    Ended up coloring for 1,800 after staying halfway through a crappy 4th shoe.

    Four vodka crans in I go back to craps. A couple points and hardways but nothing to get a good roll going. Gave 400 away of the 1800.

    So was down a bit walked over to the D and hit the 2k handpay up in the HL room. Yes!

    Vodka crans kept coming!!!

    Gave some back playing craps and cabbed it back to Mirage for a nap and meet back with my wife.

    Seems like the only way to win anything is to play high-limit slots.

    Overall a great trip! Nearly doubled the bankroll brought after tips and going a little over on f&b.

    Had Bellagio buffet the night before leaving, was above average but not quite as great as I remember the last trip.

    I enjoyed playing and drinking downtown so much that I really want to consider a downtown trip next time. They really take care of people and seem genuinely happier to be there. The craps crews at Mirage were dead, seemed uninterested and one stick actually watched more TV as we waited for him to ship the dice. I barely tipped the tables there, but the crews at the D and GG were getting along good. I think the pit boss at GG even came out to shake my hand as they were doing a shift change thanking me.

    Can't wait to return!!!!!!! Of course hitting 10k and doing crazy dances and yelping at 5am in the morning 2 hours before your flight will leave a sweet taste in your mouth. LOL
