Just got back last night from a 4 day/3night trip. First trip where I was able to come back with more than I left with, and with the comps and coupon usage, managed to make it a very profitable trip. I'll update this thread with more details later, once my head clears (seems I brought back a cold with me.), but wanted to give a few to the Orleans. Multi-Strike Poker Paytables have been adjusted since December 2004. In December Jacks or Better was a horrible 6/5, this trip they had adjusted the paytables to a more acceptable 8/5. Managed to pull $75 out a nickle machine this trip. For you red chip blackjack players, you can get comps from the Orleans if you ask. I played about 4 hours straight one night betting red the entire time, and manged to get a comp for the Buffet for 2. Just to the Orleans in general. This is the second time I've stayed there, and I'll definitely be back. It has become my home away from home when in Vegas. I'll post some more details later on my frugal savings.
