    Room looks comfortable. I love a table in a room to drop all my crap as soon as I walk in. Hope you hit it big. I'm on the edge of being there - I'm counting on you to push me over.

    Thanks everyone for the good wishes.
    So the first session was dragon link and anchorman that beat me up.
    Anchorman is on the banned list now. I will take my revenge on dragon link at some point though.

    Going to have a little rhubarb gin and tonic before hitting the floor.
    Probably should eat something at some point I guess :rolleyes2:

    Currently 11 dollars in front ... thanks to my freeplay. Nothing worth taking a picture of but plenty of 20 -50$ line pays and I have managed to get my nose in front.

    Going to play first craps game now.
    Let's get some chip porn!

    Back to 200 down for the day after recovering a bit on wonka.
    I have stayed here at Luxor for 3 nights on my last 2 trips and I don't recall winning on craps here either time. Maybe I'll play at the excalibur tomorrow on their 5 dollar table and see how that goes.

    Off to look for a hot slot.

    If you make it over to The Linq, can you take pictures of the "new" sports book? Thanks!

    So... after a crazy few days I'm back lol... done a marathon session Tuesday through Wednesday. .. painful financially and physically. Not going into too much detail but overdid it on many fronts.

    Barely made it out of bed yesterday but I did and managed to a bit of shopping. Checked south outlets out and then went to Vegas cigar warehouse and got some nice cigars, over 50 % cheaper than UK on a lot of cigars. Very good place.

    So today I move to cosmo and am feeling slightly more human. Will try and get back to more sensible behaviour and regular updates and pictures.

    Had a real roller coaster yesterday.
    Up on slots, lost it on craps.
    Twice.
    Then went to roulette and hit some nice numbers on two different tables... back to craps... point seven out and i went to bed before i lost my profit again!
    Anyway we booked a 4 figure winning day in the end.

    Checked out the new food court at Cosmo. Was pretty busy.
    Ended up having the handrolls from tekka bar. Decent enough but won't be hurrying back but i will no doubt try somewhere else before I leave.

    Nice hits. I'm not a slot player but everyone keeps posting these hits I may have to give them a shot on my next trip.

    If you aren’t hooked, don’t start unless you enjoy the games. The hits are at most 10% of the play. I enjoy it. I consider it an entertainment expense, otherwise I wouldn’t partake. That adrenaline of a win is intoxicating though.
