    Also :nworthy: your documentation of this hopefully once in a lifetime event. It will be a rare record of a rare event.
    also love and have been watching your previous Vlogs, just love your attitude towards gambling/losses. It happens, have fun anyways.

    So, I type this from the plane home. I have 2 hours before landing in the UK. My original flight got changed twice, and I ended up flying LAS - LAX - LHR.

    I have a few videos still to post, which will follow over the coming weeks. These are:

    Final Day - Part Seven

    Group Slot Pull from 15/03/20

    Group Slot Pull from 17/03/20

    Richard Wilk interview (1hr 10mins) in 2 parts where we cover his background, the casino business in general along with the Louis Theroux documentary 'Gambling In Las Vegas' (of course!) Want to know what happened to Allan the High Roller? Stay tuned!

    Mirage Walkthrough

    Treasure Island Walkthrough.

    I'll post Part Seven here in a few days as it directly relates to the trip report. If you'd like to watch the rest please subscribe to the channel. The Richard Wilk interview is particularly good!

    All the best to you all & I hope Vegas gets back to normal soon!

    Matt.

    Matt, thanks for the vlogs and glad you're able to get back home. Looking forward to the interview, but I would really like to know what happened to Martha, did she continue to play at the property after it transitioned to the Westgate?

    So looking forward to your vids.

    Discovered your channel, now I’ve already seen your November trip and am currently reliving your summer ‘19 trip.

    Looking forward to all of your vlogs and yes, I will subscribe! Your vlogs are going to be a public service/stress reliever for so many, like me, who won't be in Vegas for a while.

    Most important, I am glad to know you got back home safely.

    thank you for doing these vlogs... it was amazing seeing everything shutting down in Vegas and without your vlogs, it wouldn't have been possible to see. I wanna say, your puppies are so cute... glad you included them!
    Hopefully when you go back to LV later in the year the experience will be fun and profitable for you!

    Derby county for me - we couldn’t beat you for 30 years but it’s been totally different for the last 15 years - maybe we should sell our stadiums to each other next time !

    This vlog series was pretty amazing to watch. Experiencing the "shut down" of Vegas from your point of view was the next closest thing to actually being there. Thanks for taking the time to vlog for all of us who love to watch!

    I can’t imagine the anxiety you must have experienced during your trip. To watch the city close behind your every step must have been awfully unnerving. Thanks for what you do to keep us at VMB entertained. We all need to take a deep breath and then plan for the next trip!!

    Love the Vlog's, but with your track record of having everything shut-down just after you've visited PLEASE stay away from my business :poke:

    Excited for the Richard Wilk interview. I watch that documentary for a Vegas fix.. along with your vlogs of course! Can’t wait to hear about Alan. Now we need someone to track down the blackjack players. ‘All I need is one good streak!’
