    Hi everybody,
    I will be in Vegas from May 20-29 and would like to organise some HL (high limit) slot pulls during that time.
    I am going once a day during my trips to the HL room and try my luck with USD 100
    This is much more fun when we can do it as a group with a higher budget !
    What are the rules and procedures ?
    Let me know by private message or just here that you are interested in joining.
    That is just for my planning, you do not need to worry if you don’t make it because your Vegas plans have changed. They change all the time, I know that from my own trips.
    We will just see who is there at the HL room at the proposed time and start the fun. If I am alone, I just play alone ;-)
    Everyone who joins has to spend USD 100 into our „gambling pool“
    We will play slots from 10-20 USD per spin, which machines will be agreed when we are there
    The money will be played until we have lost it all (hopefully not) or until we at least doubled our pool total amount
    Example: 5 people give USD 100 each, we play until the money is gone or we have USD 1000 or more.
    When we stop the session the total from the voucher(s) will be split equally between all participants
    We use my players card in the slot unless you want to use your own for the spins we are doing from your part of the budget.
    It would be great when we have somebody in the group who can take the „tax ownership“ of handpays if we have any, as for me we would have a 30% deduction due to my passport.
    Means when I take the money from a handpay they will only pay out 70%, which would be a big loss for the group result
    If we change from one slot to another after some spins or if we extend to more sessions is up to discussion when we are there, I dont want to set up too much on rules ;-)
    It should be fun
    Let me know if you wanna join

    Mrs. LV and I arrive 10PM on the 24th. CP on Monday works. It's typically 25% fed tax off the top for handpays.

    I remember having paid 30% but in any case it is quite a lot. We will see, maybe we find a better way to get all our handpays solved ;-)

    Maybe get a british person to do the pulling, they are tax exempt and just need to show a passport ;)

    Wife and I could attend the CP pull on 28th.

    Last time I went to one these, @The Stig pulled for the group to avoid taxes. We didn’t get that lucky though.

    We could always use my card since I have enough losses to counter any win we would get;)

    That’s 10-12 so far with one being a Brit. That’s a good size for a group pull! Can’t wait.

    Yes. I organized it at the mirage Mickey and joaks

    Remember we could not get drinks for all of us.

    It was fun but we won squat.

    Let me know time and date.

    We can do it like we did last time.

    Everyone has one pull (but a Brit ) will be seated at the machine with his or her card in.

    After everyone has one pull we decide if we stay or move to another machine. We even had the option of opting out after one pull each if someone wanted too but no one did.

    Gonna be fun.

    Yea it was fun. After you left, about 5 of us played a few more rounds. Kathy Griffin was playing about 2 machines down from us and Realsolglow kept hitting on her. It was pretty cool!

    It was a good day although would of been better with a win. If I remember rightly, somebody won on the machine we went on first before moving to another. It was a great night Downtown and plenty of drink was consumed.
