    Hi Mike!!!!! So happy to "see" you!! Some of us were a little worried as you were MIA on the boards but so happy to know you were likely in your OTHER happy place. :)

    Happy New Year to you and many thanks for the good wishes!

    Just finished your report after various sittings - thanks for all the time and effort you put in to your reports - so very happy for you with some of those big wins and for also being brutally honest about some of the downward turns you took as well.

    As for all that fine food you consumed, possibly may be just a bit jealous here :D

    Looking forward to your next report and just praying that the US will allow people from the UK to travel in September so we can make the trip we had to cancel last September

    Just catching up on this amazing report, but I have to highlight THIS. I went to the Wynn for the first time my last trip with the intention of playing a lot to hopefully get a decent teaser offer, but ended up not even trying because the slot selection was so abysmal. It was so disappointing because I really love everything else about the property, but it just doesn't make sense for me to put in money there if I'm going to end up playing elsewhere the majority of the time. Flowers should definitely mention this to her host as suggested.

    Thanks for reading and I'm glad you enjoyed the report! I forgot to mention to my host but I definitely will before I return as we stay in touch with my obsessive trip planning. LOL. I was thinking about it more looking at slot wins of some fellow VMBers and thinking that machine looks so cool and fun but I hadn't seen it at Wynncore.

    Can’t wait for June buddy. Thanks for the tip @Flowers, @spdandpwr and I will toast one to you, wishing you were with us for another meal at V/P. This will be my first time there.....

    I just spent about 2 and a half hours absolutely engrossed in this trip report after it showed up on the new posts page and I’m so happy it did!! @Flowers, thank you for all the incredible details- I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you but I’m a firm believer that you do things the right way. For me half the fun is in the planning but have no problem going with the flow once I’m there. This is making me so excited for my upcoming trip and hopefully in the future I’ll have some Flowers level vacations! So glad to see your new year kicked off to an epic start, and glad that I’ve recently found VMB to keep me occupied :) cheers

    Most of the new slots are actually on the Encore side. I believe Encore is used to beta test slots before they go to wynn. The stadium style table games were completely dead so I think they're getting creative in the wrong places lol

    Another award winning Flowers trip report!! What else can I add that all the others haven't already said. All of the trip reports that Flowers writes are fantastic, but this one, maybe because of the incredible 58K hit, which we pretty much never see on here, took the top prize!!! Thank you so much for taking us along for this awesome and fun ride, and waiting for your next trip/adventure, which hopefully will be even better than this one was!! :trophy::trophy::trophy::trophy::trophy::trophy:

    They need to do something about the shady characters. Like if enough people report someone, kick them out. I don't stay at the property to be greeted by the skeeve squad

    @Flowers, just finished your TR today. Lots of fun, lots of great pics, and thank you so much for all the effort you put into it. I know I’m a little late to the party. Maybe I’ve been living under a three card poker table for the last four or five months. Thank you truly!
