I've done many trip reports on LasVegas4ever, but this is my first one here. I know some posters on this board who post there, so you folks know who I am and I've met several of you. I have posted my Video Poker wins in the Video Poker section of the site, no need to duplicate these here. The Three Amigos 2020 Las Vegas Trip The three of us formerly worked for the same company in the same division. Two of us for a short period worked in the Technology Planning, though had different expertise. In 2010 we agreed to do a Vegas trip together and have been going there eleven consecutive years. Both of my friends missed one trip, though I’ve been to all of them. The early years we did most of the tourist spots, like Red Rock, Valley of Fire, Hoover Dam, Death Valley, etc. Prior to our trips we get together for a lunch at one of the local restaurants and plan our trip. My friend “I” volunteered to take notes and provide minutes to our meeting and we make comments for corrections. It’s equivalent of a business document in tone. We document what things we will do and other options we categorize as maybe. This trip was my Sevens Stars Retreat and also 7* Signature Event. I had up to $1200 for Air Fare paid in Free Play our fare for two of us was $1080. The third friend paid for his own ticket and the fare was split with the one that got his airfare free on my ticket. I also had another $500 folio from an experience credit and I was also booked with the 7* Signature event. All told I had $1400 to spend for food and drink on this trip. It turned out we went a bit over that. The other restaurants for dinner were Bugsy and Meyers and Old Homestead. I also was able to schedule a couple of short meets with people from two of the Vegas websites. One VMB meet with Flowers and another with GR25R5Rchips from LV4Ever. Overall we missed a couple of the places that were probable we didn’t do and were replaced by some we did multiple times for expedience. We also went to Harrah’s where we met my host at Noodle Bar and she ordered several dishes for the four of us. We get to talk and catch up and she knows my most of the people I travel with to Vegas. She sets me up and I know what she can do for me and she delivers. We dined at Mon Ami Gabi and Café Americano for breakfast multiple times, because it was just easy. We like MAG because the food is good and compared to many others on the strip, a bargain. We also went to Pizza Rock one prior to the Neon Museum Brilliant Show. I should have booked both the Brilliant and the Guided Tour and was disappointed that I didn’t get to some of the neon signs, my error – next time. Now I will talk about the experience overall during Covid-19. It jus was not the same Vegas that I’m accustomed to. The constant wearing of masks was a bit tiring and I think it wore me out some of the time. I played only VP as I usually do. Having Fewer machines available weren’t an issue until Thursday afternoon rolled in. I have particular machines I like, several weren’t available due to requirement of every other machine being unavailable. An observation not connected with Covid-19 is that Caesars changed some of their pay tables that were 9/6 to 9/5. I play multi-line machines and they were usually 9/5 prior to now. However, single line machines that I know were 9/6 are now 9/5. I wasn’t able to check many machines but I’m guessing the 9/6 single line machines have met extinction in CP. Overall I did not have a winning trip though my loss wasn’t large to me. My normal play is $1 multi-line VP. I also play single line usually at $2. This trip I had four hand-pays. I had various wins, none super large. I’d like to interject an unusual thing that happened to me again. I normally play in the same area in CP. Some of the Cocktail Waitresses have been there for many years and they see repeat customers. Last year Michelle, a CW, came by and says to me Vodka and Cranberry? I say how do you remember that? She says I always what my favorite customers order. I said not right now. Then she waves her had over my VP screen and says she was wishing me luck and leaves. Three hands later I get a Royal Flush. This year I’m sitting and playing at the same machine and Michelle comes by and says I was looking for you. Again she says Vodka and Cranberry? This time I said yes and she says you want a Figi water too? I say yes. Off she goes and before she’s back I had four to a Royal and I connected on one of the hands. I wouldn’t believe it if I wasn’t the recipient of this gem of luck. Also, one morning the very first hand I played – I drew a kicker for a $2K Aces. See below link for VP wins: https://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?threads/my-latest-vegas-trip-vp-winners.178534/ Below is some evidence of my food and play. I was remiss on capturing food because I don’t like to show food that was partially eaten. Masks that I wore this trip , I did 4 years in the Air Force in a previous life that's why I wore them. To prove I was in Augustus Tower a picture from my room.
