    Went to wicked spoon 2 for 1 with sterling indentity. Thought it was great, especially the price. Then 2 for 1 to see opium. Great show. I will write up the trip properly when I'm home. Then i was a complete F-ing idiot. Dumped 150 in elvis. 100 in some stupid slot. 600 on craps. 100 on vp. In the space of 30 monutes. No value. No fun.... up in the room cooling off...need to rally its my last night....

    I feel your pain, I have those bad runs and it’s amazing how much you can blow in 30-45 minutes! Hang in there.

    You got this!

    I live the 100 play vp in the HL room. while it costs a pretty penny to play, you never fully lose on a hand. Can go quick though!

    In the HL room? Don't you mean just outside of it?

    Back in Dublin and plan to do a proper write up of the trip later on.

    Quick recap on our last night - I did not head back down tot he casino after my stupid play on the last night. Instead I got up at 5.30 and went down to play. Had a great morning gambling. Bought a coffee in Starbucks and went straight to Dragon Link slot. Third spin bit the feature for $486. Played a few other slots and had a game of craps where I finished down $75. Played some VP (25c, 8 hands, 50 play machine outside HL room) and won $200. Back to Craps and a guy at the table had a great roll, I bought in for $200, out fo around $900 (pic of rail attached). I then went up and down for a while, really having a good gambling morning.

    Wednesday (6th March):

    Arrived in LAS at 6.30pm, headed over to Baggage claim and I could see that Mrs M was looking very keenly at all the Limo driver signs….. and low and behold there is Rico from Presidential waiting to help us with our bags. I was surprised to be honest. We did a limo once before from the Airport (when the Venetian were paying for it) but have been (happily) using Lyft for the last few years. Great treat and start to the trip. We asked to stop at a CVS en route to get some waters and mixers for the vodka (Tito’s from Duty Free) and paper cups (we always like to mix a drink in the room and hit the casino floor with it in hand so we are not getting frustrated trying to locate a waitress). The champagne in the Limo was surprisingly good.

    We arrived at the Bellagio and the hotel lobby was pretty quiet. There was no one in line at the invited guests line and we were checked-in in no time.

    Before heading up to the room, I asked (insisted) MrsM is she minded if we stopped just before the elevators so I could have a quick cigarette. I popped a $100 bill in a random machine, popped a filthy Marlboro Light in my mouth, and pressed bet Max credits (9 dollars I think). Two spins in and BOOM - $500 dollar win. MrM says great start, lets go to room now – BUT I have only had one drag of my cigarette so I take the TITO and put it my pocket. Take out a $50 dollar bill and BOOM – three spins in over $500 win. This is the type of start I have been dreaming of – Before even making it to the room we (I) are up almost $1000.

    I finished my cigarette and up we went to the room. The room was great – 25th floor and close to the elevators (as requested). Amazing picture-postcard view over the Belllagio Fountains.

    I had a quick shower and left MrsM to take her time getting ready. I played a few slots and lost about $100 waiting for her to appear whilst playing a mix of Lightning Link and WoF. When she arrived we headed to the Sports Bar to play some VP. Had a couple of good hits at $1 DDB.


    Cannot remember much of the rest of night but went to bed ‘up’ which is a great start to any trip. We ate in Snacks for dinner – wings and a slice of pizza – nice food, hard to really mess this up.
