    Morning was uneventful. Plan was up early, skyline restaurant for breakfast the bird preserve, sams town mystic fall then room for naps. Did none of it. Went to Vons then Venetian shops for gummy bears and gelato. Breakfast was a drive through breakfast taco and churros.

    Twins are napping and I am finally getting to play.

    That sure felt good counting out all those hundreds and paying with cash. Hope I don’t have to get another one. Twelve tax forms and still way down.

    Tring type question
    At Paris HL there is a machine that is $25 coin in per TC. The only difference on bonus poker is full house pays 8 instead of 7 like the two beside it. Seems like a tiny difference to justify the $25 coin in

    Of course never have seen anyone on it

    Nothing special at Paris. Down about 1200. Went back to Bally’s tried hi limit then front bar without a quad. Tried the .25 progressive. SoSF had four quads and I got one right at the end. Moved over to the Lobby Bar by DIL where I hit on keno. Played keno and switched to TDB and got this beauty.

    After that it was time to pick up take out at Gangnam Asian BBQ which was ion great. Not the same as eating there but the twin tornadoes were in a whiny mode so hotel room worked out great. Currently on the couch watching paw patrol with the twins for a few minutes. I’ll head back down s

    Well, it might seem that way, but as you get close to 100% return, it makes a big difference on expected loss.

    For 7/5 Bonus the house edge is 1.99%, but it's only 0.83% for 8/5 Bonus.

    So would expect to lose 58% less money playing 8/5 bonus, but you would also lose 60% tier points, and likely would get worse offers playing that machine as well. But if you easily clear 7 Star in a year, it might not be a bad idea to mix in some play on the reduced point machine though.

    More notably though, I'd really try to avoid playing $5 level single line DDB at CET bars. I would try to play some multiline Super DDB if I had to bet bigger at a CET bar. Harrah's has some. Maybe Flamingo and Linq? @Gaggles help???

    Good to know. Wish I had played it last week since the tier credits weren’t needed. Once I hit seven stars this year I will try

    Bugsy's has 4 multi plays that other long bar at Flamingo has 2 multi plays with SDDBP. Linq has 2 multi play at that old beer bar and a few at the middle long bar. CP has two multi plays at the back of Alto bar that always seem to have someone on them when I want to play! I has a FB message this week from Po at Bally's who advised they now have a multi play machine at the new Bally's bar tops. Just one though. I had been whining for years to the bartenders art Bally's to get me a multi play bar top!

    Just getting to this TR. You might wish to consider SDDBP over DDBP although it would mean multi play machines. Loving the report though. Thanks for posting.

    Slow start this morning so skipped Big Bear Diner and the spring reserve. Instead went to Carlitos Burritos and the rolled ice cream. Carlitos moved to a new location about three years ago and it is much bigger. Guess we haven’t been back longer than we thought. Same awesome food

    I had the pork verde burrito with a side of beans and rice. Wife had the pork chili verde soup

    Afterward we went to Rolled Ice Cream which was great will definitely be back next trip.

    Stopped into Cromwell to burn some reward credits. My wife got a nice pair on sunglasses and still have some left

    Then turned in rental car and am now starting my play for the day. Early indications are not good. Down 700 Cromwell and now 300 at Bally’s. May not make my points today

    Can’t believe it’s coming to an end
