    Thanks! Yes, we were there a couple years back, we've learned our lesson, we are not planning on being in the middle of the Strip in front of Planet Hollywood this time... I think we'll be out more south around Tropicana intersection. I don't see it being as packed out that way. Thanks for the info on the Flamingo room. I'm really leaning towards a stay there :)

    Great report - I figured it was you in Matt's video as I recognized you from previous trip reports. You were indeed lucky for the group. Loved how excited everybody was.

    There was another "group pull" on the Top Dollar machine not too long ago.
    $800 total and they did got the bonus 0 times.
    They didn't hit anything that paid a return.
    Hitting 3 bonuses is awesome. Maybe you used all your table game luck on the group slot pull.

    That sounds like a rough group pull :mad:
    We were pretty lucky... 3 bonuses and a $1600 hand pay in 18 tries, plus a few other smaller line hits in there as well... tough to beat!
    Blackjack was horrible for me, but I've been doing decent at local casinos lately (knock on wood) so I guess that's just the ebb and flow of the game. But for some reason winning in Vegas is somehow more exciting than winning in Ontario haha
