    Floor 7-9? Haha. It's still not that bad though.

    11. Wouldn’t mind higher but wasn’t willing to shell out $20 for a possible “upgrade”. Haha

    Need to count the bankroll but off the top of my head I think we’re down about $400 total on the trip. Everyone likes to win but considering the huge number of hours we’ve both played over the past 2+ days, we’re doing really well for low rollers.

    Looking forward to our last full day and happy we won’t have to get up early and rush tomorrow (flight isn’t until 7pm tomorrow night).

    Anniversary lunch at Mon Ami on the patio. I’m only down $30 today but wife down a couple hundred. Cancelled our dinner reservation at Hell’s Kitchen, though, so that’s probably another $150 or more for gambling. So basically we’re winning. The math adds up.

    Someone tell me about this 9/7 triple double bonus at Cromwell. What’s the percentage? And what’s the best game on that machine percentage-wise?

    Some VP porn for you guys. Palms 10/6 DDB hits. All me. Wife has hit nothing. This is like a reverse of yesterday. She hit everything yesterday and I was way down. I’m now up $230 or so on the day and she’s down...uh....whatever amount I can pretend makes us even on the day. Also many drinks in. I like today.

    Aw fantastic!

    I'm so pleased for you :)

    I remember that feeling when I hit my first ever on my last trip - I had to read the screen about 3 times before I knew what had happened!

    I hope you have a wonderful remainder of your trip.

    Well, the saddest day of them all has arrived: departure day. Can’t complain after that royal yesterday, though!

    Technically, we’re still down about $100 overall on the bankroll, as we were down quite a bit when we got to Palms yesterday and even the royal couldn’t make up for that plus my wife’s brutal gambling day yesterday. But hard to feel bad about it when we’ve gotten to play more this trip than our last few combined, I’d guess. Having fun is what it’s all about and we’ve been having a blast. We also played that 10/6 DDB (and I drank) for five hours straight at Palms yesterday. Probably our longest session ever.

    Our flight isn’t until 7pm, so we don’t have to head towards the airport until about 4pm. I believe the plan is grab a quick bite, then head to the pool for a couple of hours. After that, we’ll get everything packed up, bring bags to bell desk, and probably wander the Strip trying not to lose much more before a Lyft to Mccarran.
