    So, to answer the players club card removed, I remove it when I get into a bonus round. I read somewhere on here that it can help with comps. Plus, I’m a little superstitious, lol.

    Just checked out of The D, heading over to Caesars. It turns out, the Fiji’s were sent to my room from my host complimentary. I’m curious to see what room I end up with at Caesars as I’m still showing comped all of the way up to nobu, but I’ll let you all know what I get.

    Thank you for clarifying the player card controversy haha you had everyone in suspense.

    Your theory makes sense for adt since maybe having your card in while idle may lower it. I think this is more important if you are playing a game like Planet Moolah which my unicow bonus took an hour haha

    Only negative I may think of is leaving some Tier Credits on the table. Let's say you are betting 6$ and it is 5$ per tier credit. At least in CET's case the fraction tier credits don't carryover from my understanding (if i'm wrong please let me know if anyone knows for sure this answer). Maybe the difference in ADT outweighs this so maybe I will try your method when I go to Vegas next. Good luck.

    @subafrk how was checking into CP?

    So for me, this is pretty much the VEGAS breakfast of champions. Give me your largest coffee and some bread, lol.

    A quick update before I head back down to clean this place out. I checked out of The D yesterday and into Caesars. I think it was pretty close to 9pm when I got to Caesars, but the Diamond checkin was still open. Of course, they took my temp before I walked into the room but this time they were requesting to see your diamond card before entering. I found that interesting, what if you didn't have it? I had mine in my bag but had to dig for it, while 2 other guests that were ready got to jump in front of me. No big deal, the line moved fast enough. Roberto called me up to the counter and after a quick conversation about being transferred from Cromwell into Forum room yada yada, he made a quick call and got approval to put me into the Augustus tower on the "34th" floor. I'll post a view pic in the next post.

    The first night I had a good time over at The D, I really might put downtown into regular rotation and shoot for some Circa comps. It really started off well as you all saw from the pics I posted earlier, but then the night took a dive, lol. I ended up going over budget but lets all be real, I kind of expect it and have a cushion built in. That meant that yesterday, I had to lick my wounds a bit. Most of last night was spent low rolling at Caesars. Drink service was much better than last time. Unfortunately, it seems that as the liquor goes in, the money empties out of my wallet. Towards the end of the night, I started to do a little bigger betting and had some lucky hits. Just enough to get me back on budget, Ill dump some pics in the next post.

    I think that tonight will be spent over at The Linq and Harrahs, I'll post the bigger wins as they come through!

    Tower of power saved me last night. First time playing this dragon game. Free spin set with a 15x multiplier on 5aces.

    Tiny bubbles, which usually is a good grinder for me, kicked my ass. Decided to play some pinball again and hit a couple of good ones.

    So, I made a rookie mistake and did not check the machine before I hit max bet and lost most of what I won on pinball. Dumb ass.

    I found this interesting and the next one kinda funny.

    Ok, for all of the smokers/cigar/vapers, the mask law is in full effect. If you enjoy the occasional puff in a bonus round, you better have something “on your lips” at all times (giggity) while you are partaking or they will ask you to mask up between puffs. Just an observation, not a work around....

    The scotch has been flowing pretty well here at The LINQ tonight. The paper towel red carpet is still in the bathroom. Below is what I feel like the poor bagle in my belly feels like.

    On most units, I've read it doesn't matter. Your players' club info will be temp stored until the spin is completed.

    But if you think it makes you do better, it won't hurt either!

    FYI, I just went and had xxxx taken out of the atm and nothing came out. I’m with chase and of course they are closed so can’t call until tomorrow. Went to casino royal and cash came out so. It sure what’s up with that. Acct still shows money withdrawal so we’ll see what happens.

    The chase issue is unsettling.

    I had an ATM do that to me one time. My bank did an instant reversal on the charge. Good luck!

    By any chance, did you accidentally do a credit card withdrawal? That would explain the charge and the lack of cash as you sometimes have to take the receipt to the cage to get your cash.

    Boy, I really hope not. I don’t like to hold a balance.
