    Hey Everyone! I'm so happy to be a part of this Vegas community! Just a quick background, I have been to Vegas 4 times in the past year and will be arriving again in July! My first experience was when I was 12 years old and my dad took me on a business trip with him. Ever since that trip I have been obsessed with everything Vegas! I will probably post here looking for help finding certain slot machines and also ideas for restaurants and shows! I am an avid Video Poker player, usually play 3 Card Ultimate Poker(Nickles or Dimes). I'm not a huge high roller, but I do like to have a good time! Here is just a quick rundown of some of my favorite Vegas casinos, attractions, etc.

    Favorite Hotel - Wynn
    Favorite Casino - Wynn/Caesars/Bellagio
    Favorite Show - Le Reve/Beatles Love
    Favorite Residency - Celine/Mariah
    Favorite Snack - Nachos at Javier's(Aria)
    Favorite Guilty Pleasure - Playing at Bally's/Flamingo

    There is a lot more, but that is some of my go-to's.

    I have literally played every Ultimate Poker on the strip, but always looking for spots I may have missed or some of your favorite spots to play those machines! Or maybe where the lucky ones are! ;)

    I look forward to posting more and getting to know everyone!

    Cheers!

    As a dedicated Downtowner a visit to Bally’s or Flamingo would be moving up in class! Take some pics in July and post ‘em, we don’t care if you write or not.

    Charlestfuller - Mostly cause I enjoy the nostalgia of being in those casinos. I remember specifically when I was a kid walking through with my dad, so it brings back memories. I use to stay at the Flamingo in the early 2010's because it was cheap, after my experience in 2016 I decided to move up to the Wynn!lol Once I started playing at the Wynn I realized my comps were better then Flamingo!ha However, I still like to walk down to those places and put some money in the slots just to get that old Vegas vibe. So to answer your question, I think Flamingo and Bally's are definitely a guilty pleasure!

    Since I'm new, can anyone tell me how you start a conversation with someone? I can't find anywhere you click to message someone privately! Thank you!

    Also, thank you to everyone who has welcomed me!:)

    The answer is in the board rules. You have to make a certain number of posts before you are permitted to private message other members
