    We were supposed to be at Park MGM March 15-18. So glad we cancelled our trip after getting a call from Bellagio on Sept 13 telling us they were closing the restaurants and likely the hotels on Monday. I'll tell you I was wondering what it was like there, i really appreciate you showing us.
    We were actually at the bellagio Easter 2004 when Bellagio Lost power and the casino closed for 4 days. I can't even imagine all the casinos that way though.
    thanks again for sharing.
    Been working day and night preparing my dept for the surge, be safe everyone.

    Ohh - I have a team photograph of the juventus team with about 7 signatures from 1973 I think when we played you in the European cup quarter final - we were good once or twice in the 1970s

    One for the history books. Even though your trip got cut short and was chaotic and uncertain, years from now this will probably be one of your most memorable Vegas trips ever.

    Edit: LOL at my countdown timer below :(

    I thought i'd post my interview with Richard Wilk here (it's very good lockdown viewing!). It was an honour to meet him and chat about Vegas. Here is Part One. Part Two to follow on Sunday...

    Excellent interview. I subscribed to your YouTube channel as will be watching old videos to keep from going insane (or any more insane if you ask the wife).

    @mattjb Highly informative interview -- among your best ever work. You just posted part two, and I am finishing watching that as I type. Part one has some excellent and honest insight about the comp game, straight from an inside source.

    Loved both parts - just finished part 2.

    Keep doing what you do Matt. Here’s to hoping we can go back to Vegas this year, from our side of the ocean...

    If you weren't a legend before, you are now sir:nworthy:. What a great interview, fantastic work. It made me immediately go and re-watch the Louis documentary on player! Excellent lockdown entertainment and a reminder that we want Vegas back ASAP please.

    Just watched part one now, and agree with everyone else. Superb interview, mate!

    Load up on snacks, and start part II :)

    The table/slots bit confused me a bit (30min Pt1) unless I'm losing my marbles. Up to 30-40% on tables and 20-25% on slots.
