    I didn't remember taking this picture while stumbling home from Cosmo after the M/G stuff until I saw it reliving my glory in my photo album earlier today, but it needed to be added to my TR. Selfie by the Arc de Triomphe's mini-me!

    Oohhh...hope you can do first class! I'll be slumming in the old mini van as usual. Going to bypass the Colorado mountains that time of year and hope for good weather the CO to NM to AZ to NV route. It's worth it for Vegas though!

    Hope it works out for you! Maybe our paths will cross!

    - I’m a terrible person. I didn’t even ask to see dog pictures when we met!
    (I may have had a couple drinks. I was off my game.)

    Curious to know what was your to your tier credit total was for this trip.
    You mentioned you were diamond is that from a single trip or from multiple trips?

    My wife keeps mentioning she wants to play the drum machine but she never does I bet after reading your trip report shall make sure to do it next trip.

    I have been 6x this year, but a few very short trips (one was literally one day and 2 of them were 2 nights - I've spent a total of 15 nights so far this year). I made platinum in April and Diamond in June.

    I don't know my tier credit total yet because I have points and bonuses that haven't credited yet, but I believe I got somewhere between 1500-2000 TC gaming not counting a 1,000 TC bonus. I also did a little over $5,000 coin-in at Cosmopolitan though, so it would have been much higher had I played at Caesar's properties the whole time. Would have gotten the 1k bonus 2-3x instead of just once. So far I have about 3,000 total give or take that have already credited, but have at least 1,000 more coming from bonus points and the one night I paid about $100 for my room though. Based on my reward credit balance, I think I ran somewhere in the $9,000-10,000 range coin-in through slots, VP, and craps at CET properties.

    Make sure she reads the part about how I lost $450 on it without a single bonus the night before I won $700 on the most unlikely epic run ever. That is one of my favorite games though because the bonuses arent tooooo infrequent most of the time, and have potential for good payoffs.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I recall reading in the beginning you were Diamond and as I was reading your trip report I kept thinking our gambling styles are identical yet you were Diamond.
    It makes sense now how you go Diamond level.
    I do about 1500-2000 TC as well but not even Platinum but only get there twice a year with my second trip coming up next month.

    Yah. And it didn't hurt that I'm sort of a room snob and paid for nice rooms twice, so of my -22,000 TC, somewhere around 8,000 are from the 5x room bonus on rooms that were $200-400 a night. This trip is only the second time I've taken a comp room because I didn't like the rooms they were offering free at first, and had the horrible experience at Rio the first time I took a comp room. I usually bankroll $1500-3000 for gambling per trip so depending on how long the trip is I may have anywhere from $500-1500 per day bankroll. For 5 days I would probably bring a little more. I get antsy if I have less than 700-800 for a day.

    I will be there Thanksgiving as well, so perhaps a M/G or a slot pull could be arranged. That would be cool!!
