    My Trip Report

    The wife and I are going to the IV in Gulfport our 1st overnight since covid. I/we have been going on day trips to get back on their radar for free nights. I reported some of these.
    Plan on reporting on how IV is handling cleaning and keeping guests safe. I've seen several reports on the Beau but not much else. This is comes in handy as I am running out of shampoo and the misses needs another shower cap
    Will basically collect some free play, uit the craps table and then do whatever the wife wants. I'm not good at photos but I'll do the best I can.

    Pretty much packed and ready. Got clothes, ppes, bankroll and player cards, and snacks. Plan is get up a little earlier than normal and head to Biloxi and work back to the IV.

    Stopped at the Palace to pick up some table play. Decided to wait and see if they open the$5 craps table. The wife and I played slots she won $25 I broken even which I consider a win at slots. We had the buffet. I treated total cost including tip $5. Now on to the craps table.

    The craps table wasn't kind. They never opened the $5 table so had to play the $10. Dropped 120 in about 45 minutes. Oh well. The wife wanted to stop at Treasure Bay. We haven't been there got about a year. The craps table was $10. So we played slots for a bit. We both won $10. Yea! now only down $110. The place still seems cramped and smoky.
    Checked in at IV. Going in security asked the usual questions then asked to see our faces?
    That was a first. The only thing about the room covid related is the tv remote is in a plastic bag.

    Never got another crack at craps. Just didn't like the tables will try again later. Played a while on slots with little investment but never got up by much but at least it stretched the bankroll.

    Early craps session netted a $40 loss. No complaints it's a beautiful day.

    Played the 2x3x4 5x slot ended up about $10. Headed to Silver Slipper in Waveland. Had $10 in free play. The SS caters to mostly seniors out of NO. The craps was 15 all other tables were 15 to 25. I played some video poker and threw my free table play.
    Currently at The Blind Tiger in Bay St Louis for lunch

    Said I wasn't very good at photos. Don't know why they post at these angles.

    If you have any room pictures, I'd love to see em, any angle is fine :D I went there for the first time over labor day weekend drove over from Beau to get the $150 freeplay they matched from a Golden Nugget offer. I didnt play much bankroll but we really liked the Beach View casino. Curious what the hotel rooms are like. They have sent me some free stay offers even though we barely played beyond our freeplay there.
