    I started slow but finished strong.

    Left room with $600
    Returned with $637
    +$37 for the trip.

    It's probably been 20 years since I've seen the sun come up in Vegas. Goodnight VMB.

    Up until dawn on your first night? Damn, that's impressive. Nice job on coming out ahead!

    Great job. Gambled all night, came home ahead. Hope my trip goes as well. Now, with the room. I don't remember ever going to the desk to get a new room, but with a stinky room...I think I'd be there complaining.

    Good job! Up all night still money in your pocket. That is a win win. I roll similar to the way you roll. I never have to worry about the noise on Fremont street when I'm sleeping. I prefer to be the one making the noise

    Thanks.

    I have a feeling all the rooms here smell the same. l think the whole place needs a makeover, new carpet, air filters paint, etc. It's just kind of musty and 40 years of stale cigarette smoke. Oh and in the evening you can start to smell the weed in the hallways too.

    And I love my share of secondhand smoke. By no means am I a smoke pansy.

    My room faces Fremont Street and I'm impressed at how well the walls and windows keep out the noise.

    I would bet that a smoker last stayed in the room and they cleaned as best they could, maybe some extra to mask the smell. I've stayed there three times in different rooms and never noticed even a hint of that smoke smell. I'd complain. They might move you or at least throw a comp or two your way. Good report though.

    Good Luck!

    There's a toy store somewhere around the Slotzilla Zip Line start that has tons of hot wheels.

    We arrived about 11:00 am and I won 250 at Binions on $5.00 craps waiting for our room at the D to be ready. Good luck tonight!

    I asked and they put me in a new room. Much better and cleaner smelling. Thanks for the suggestion.
