    Finished up $50 on $7,500 coin in on triple play quarter Jacks at Southpoint. Plus won $55 in FP, which I turned into $35. Then met aunt at Momo sushi for dinner. I’m so full now. Headed to downtown Henderson casinos.

    Up $1.25 on $1,500 coin in. Got to spin the giant wheel and got $20 cash, plus pick a gift from the gift table - a Star Wars mini football for my nephew who is flying in tomorrow. Also won $7 on some slots. #BigWinner

    Sounds like a neutral session. But when neutral sessions put you ahead after the promos, you're at a good place!

    Even at Skyline last night. Last day in Vegas! Dropping my uncle off at airport shortly. Cousin and cutest baby in the world arriving at six. My flight out is at 1:24AM tomorrow (ouch). Random casino stopping this afternoon.

    Dropped uncle at airport then ended up meeting aunt for lunch at Whole Foods. They make a shockingly good cheeseburger. Then over to Green Valley Ranch where I was ($100) on VP bit +$180 on slots.

    Stopped at Fiesta Henderson where I was break even. Got 1,500 ($1.50) points on their kiosk game. Then Klondike sunset where I won $20 on NSUD. They have a gift card promo on Friday’s - no detail online. Essentially it’s $5 Walmart or Smiths gc per $200 slots/$1,500VP/$3,000 decent VP.

    Stopped in at Skyline, but there weren’t any 9/6 progressive seats open at the bar. So one last stop at Sunset Station. Where I won $6 vulturing Ult X in the high limit room. Was down almost $50 on two spins so was glad to make a comeback.

    Back at family’s doing some laundry and waiting impatiently for cousin and baby to get here. Did a final bankroll count and I’m leaving up $2,502 plus change. Great trip! If only they could all be like this.

    Nice trip! Bad time to come back to STL. Weather is garbage. Tornado warning earlier tonight too, but chance of snow tomorrow night. Lol

    Yay! I can hardly wait! Sigh. At least I'm only in town until Monday morning when I head to Texas for work.

    @eliza - helluva of a trip. Wish I could have been your wingman. Maybe some day we'll get to enjoy a Canucks~Pens game there ... we'd know who'd win ... lol.

    Cheers, GG.

    I’ll probably be back out for a week in February. Cousin and baby are staying in Henderson for a couple months and I’d like to spend some time with them before they go back to the middle of nowhere. Probably won’t do a trip report that trip as it won’t be particularly gambling heavy. I have a cruise the end of the this month. Not sure when my next “real” Vegas trip will be, maybe March?

    I’m glad you recognize the superiority of the Penguins. My goal is to see them play in every arena - so I’m hoping to catch a game in Vancouver eventually.
