    Playing red chip level PGP at Suncoast 3-4 hours/day is enough to get comped rooms there? That's fantastic! My wife and I love Pai Gow, we'll have to try that! :)

    Yeah, we play 2 reds every hand, 1 on the bonus thing and another 2 on the other bonus thing for a total bet of $13.
    Other than that we play some slots, an occasional hour of BJ and that's about it. Together we go through around $400 a day.

    WOW!

    I haven't got into VP much, but I never (except once) have $200 last me that long in slots...and I'm always looking for low limit slots!

    Yah, that's the trainer I've been using.

    I make my choice and then chose "house way" and see if my way was correct.

    Usually around 8 hours at the .90 - 1.50 level.

    This last trip was terrible, though. One of the worst runs I've had on slots.

    I budget about 600/day for a 5 night trip. Usually twice per year sometimes 3 times.
    I play let it ride 5, 5, 5, 5, 5 , 1 per hand. So the money can go pretty fast unless you hit something within the first 20 hands. Although if you do hit something it can sustain you hours at the table.
    I have lasted all day/night at the table off of just starting at 300 dollars and left up... then the next day I lose my shirt and am -400 for the night.
    This past week I won almost 1K on slots early on. Which let me play even longer then I normally would and try out more slots and more table games then i normally would.

    A guy hit 4 of a kind and won about 2500 off of one hand.
    I hit straight flush 2 times with the 3 cards dealt to me (40 to 1 odds) but nothing off of the 5 or 6card hands. the pay out would of been very nice. 1 away from royal flush 2 times (payout at least 25k)

    My wife and I match funds and basically have increased every trip. We were at $600 per night last trip, and I’m going on a guys trip next month (I’ve only been to Vegas with my wife). So I definitely need more this time, right? She’s mainly a slot player hitting max bet and way more lucky than me. I have been setting up at craps lately and when I get to slow play I do much better. So I will probably take $50 more just to keep the trend, and hopefully not even need it. When I get close to my limit for the day I just drink more so that I don’t care about going back to the room. I have a strict rule about never hitting an ATM in Vegas. Except one time, and it’s because I carried half of my bank roll, got burnt, and ended up at Stagedoor and didn’t have enough for a $6 round when my wife went to the bathroom. Lol.
