    Bellagio was a big bust. Lost $700 pretty quickly and called it a night over there. Came
    back to CP on a quest to get to 1000 tier credits for the night and did it +200 (booked 2500+ credits each of the last 2 days, but didn’t have the energy or desire to put in another 1500 tonight). Cp was plus 300 for the day and MGM was -700 or so.

    Tomorrow is a pool day. I hear there is a Peloton in the CP gym and I need to ride another 45 miles in the next 3 days, so I may try to hit the gym before the pool. Sorry no slot porn to speak of for the day - I always forget to take a photo of the stuff that isn’t jackpots!!

    I’ve had 14 lightning balls on lightning link 5 times this trip, but it just wouldn’t drop that last one in for $100k. Guess that means I can’t quit my day job.

    Not planning on gambling at all tomorrow. I’m over it. Assuming I feel the same way tomorrow, I’m booking an overall +$10,300 trip including what I’ve estimated for the Amazon gift card ($3300). I also paid for all tips and cabs in cash, so probably spent another $350 or so that would have otherwise been winnings. Off to bed!

    Nice TR @msujen12 - congratulations on your wins plus I admire your discipline. I’m always so happy with myself when I leave Vegas a winner. You ate at some great restaurants too. I would eat at Joe’s every time if I could get a comp for it. Someone treated me there twice. Loved the stone crab.

    Let me know if this is true, and if masks are required while working out. I was told they are, and I understand but I’m not sure I can do that without passing out.

    It is in fact lies!!! Someone wearing their Peloton Century shirt told me that, but these are the bikes they have - definitely not Peloton [​IMG]

    Also, masks are required so no thanks on working out in those conditions. I get it, but I have asthma so I’d rather not die.

    Thank you! Walking past the machines this morning gave me a small desire to play, but I left all the $$ in the safe so not happening! I just try to remind myself that going home a winner ensures that the next trip can be fun as well (and that is in August so not too far away). I had fun, but I’ll have more fun depositing $12k in the bank, particularly since only about $2500 was ever in the bank to begin with thanks to winning at my local before heading here.

    Gave it one more shot against my better judgment and lost $1000 so fast my head was almost spinning. Oh well. House money. I don’t even think I got 300 tier credits out of the $1000. Thank goodness for 5x points I guess . Waiting for my Uber in front for Cp. odd that they only let Lyft pick up at the colosseum parking garage. I prefer Lyft but wasn’t walking that far.

    Final stats: +6000 cash +3400 gift card.
    All tips ($350ish) paid in cash. $195 of credit card charges total.

    Status - with the 5x multiplier my Diamond Plus status is secured for sure. Sitting at just over 18,000 before that bonus is applied.

    Beat my goal of coming home with a net win by a significant margin. Definitely the best Vegas trip I’ve ever had. Hopefully I can repeat a similar performance in August.

    Cheers everyone. Thanks for following along!

    Home safely. Southwest for the win. Middle seats were in fact open.

    Forgot about this disaster of a meal from the food court at CP. $24 and the garlic knots were inedible, salad was gross and the pizza was super greasy. Smash burger yesterday was way better.

    Earl of Sandwich, The Halal Guys and the BBQ place weren’t open the whole time I was there.

    Last stop of the trip - Chase Bank to deposit my winnings with my husband as my personal protection
