    Welsh-Blonde,
    I sent you a PM about 3 tickets I bought to the Rascal Flatts show at Venetian for tonight's show only. I can't use the tickets. They are yours at no charge if you can use them.

    Well I'm so sorry that I went off the Radar guys! The last couple of days of the trip with a bell ringing blur with lots of wins and alcohol and walking! We really wanted to go to lots of casinos we had never visited before we left. I think we achieved that! I will update properly later on with photos and my little visit to the VIP lounge on the expert advice of Trewbrew! Can't wait to plan my next trip! Still in love with the place.

    Very sorry again. This regular trip report ing business is very susceptible to alcohol it seems.

    Ok! So missing day number one!

    We have been in the Linq nearly a week and allthough my +1 has been nearly everywhere whilst waiting for me to get ready of a morning, I, had not gone north at all. So, we wander out past Guy Fiereis and into Harrahs for a spot of gambling and this is where it began...

    I had some good hits on the VP and was enjoying my Tequila Sunrise....

    Then my minimal gambling +1 comes casually sauntering over..... I ask him how he did on the slots ..... he says ok......

    O - frigging - k!?!? $900 on an 80c bet!!!! Flipping hell. I was jumping up and down for him and he was playing it cool haha. Amazing! This was such a big win for him and have no shame in saying his total bank roll for the trip was only $1500 so he was a very happy bunny.

    So we ended on a high in Harrahs and wandered through Casino Royal, got out freeplay offer but no wins then onto the Venetian! It was time for Zefferinos!!! (+1 was paying now ..... )

    What a stunning casino, it really does feel luxurious. I can see the appeal! Onto the food...

    Antipasti for moi....+1 had the soup but no photo sorry....got excited...

    THE rissotto for main!! I have been craving this since I saw it on here and It did not dissapoint!!! AH MAZE ING

    20171010_133117.jpg

    +1 had the Filet Mingion which was also pretty epic...

    20171010_132925.jpg

    We shared a little dessert but I had allready tried to munch as much of the rissotto as I could and was too full to appriciate the pastry...

    All of this whilst being serenaded from below...beautiful veiw from our table...

    Just one cornettooooooo!! :D



    We traveled back through casino royal and i had a nice 4oak on VP! Then played some Wonka....omg I love that game.

    20171010_160722.jpg

    I gave up on Wonka and +1 had a try...

    20171010_162035.jpg

    Full screen of wilds!!!! Amazing!!! He was having some good luck!!!

    On the way out we had to try our luck on Sharknado...
    20171010_163831.jpg
    Only put a $20 in....Lucky +1 strikes again!!!

    Onto the Mirage next! I was eyeing up that Paradiso shop when we stayed there and had to go back to get my mum a gift. Shopping done we were seduced by the Harley Davidson slots again with both machines on super high bonus spins....like 50+.... about a couple of hours we spent on these!!! To be honest we stayed pretty broke even going 20 down then hitting a good spin or a wheel bonus but those pesky bonus spins kept eluding us but I was happy with my Lemon drops ...then maybe after the 6th..... bingo!



    After my hit the ever lucky +1 hit his too and it was worth the wait.

    Next to the Aria! I had my 241 MyVegas buffet voucher and I didnt want to not use it. We grabbed a taxi down because.....lazy....and played a little slots, nothing major but nothing lost so we are both still up! Food was fab as usual.... major photo dump incoming....

    Some great wins there. Waiting for the next instalment. Have done most of our packing today, and this is upping the anticipation for me.

    Thanks.
