    Handpays are very hard to get at my bet levels!!


    I've had great first nights for the last 4 trips. Law of averages means it was bound to end

    Yay!! The first two were great but I felt exhausted just thinking about your travel day!

    The second was glorious in terms of gaming (even without huge wins I just learn so much from your vlogs about different games that I now want to try), views, views and more great views, and your sense of humor!

    Love your videos. I was triggered by $5 per press on lightning link at 1c denomination. I guess it gives more pay lines than 10c? I know it's definitely fewer lines at $1 but I never play that on less than 5c unless I want to low roll at < $1 a press. A win is a win but man oh man, seeing 3 minors and them only being $10 would drive me nuts on a $5 spin! I cant do it!

    Great vlogs again, I was wondering why you flew to LA rather than direct to Vegas but you said it was a fair bit cheaper but is it worth the hassle getting from LA to Vegas?
    I seem to be mirroring you this year as I to will be making four visits from the UK March 10 nights June/July 15 nights September 7 nights and December 10 nights

    Great fun so far, will be watching part three tonight! Thanks so much for putting in so much effort to allow us to follow along at home. I always had a soft spot for the Excalibur, so this makes for good watching!

    Well I won the maxed out Major in August doing that on 1c and have a great win in Part Four doing the same. Playing max at a certain bet level clearly does something to the game if it's in the mood.

    if you fly to LA again, you might look into flying a hopper flight over to Vegas on Southwest Airlines. Most likely there is a flight heading out every hour and you probably pay more for rent car/gas/parking than the round trip. It's a cattle car flight but cheap and frequent.

    Just finished watching the epic bonus on part 4 now. It definitely doesnt actually give you the progressives as often on 10c / $1 in my experience. I'll give it a few goes for fun ina couple days. It's just a mental block for me :D

    I was just looking at flights from LAX and SNA a couple days ago and found a round trip on frontier for $52 and change out the door. And about 5 different airlines round trip in the $100-145 range RT from LAX

    Thanks for the tower views, I would not have bothered doing that, but your photos have persuaded me to give it a go in March. The last vlog was great, the wins are brilliant but your commentary really makes it. Keep it up and thank you.:nworthy:

    +1.

    I have NEVER visited the Vegas Eiffel tower (though I have visited the one in Paris). I just added this to my trip this week with my goddaughter! I was thinking about the roller for her, which is fun, but like these views even more.
