    My Trip Report

    Nice Suited Royal progressive pot at 4Q. Missed it by that much.

    With those buildings gone that area eerily opens up. That screen hanging from the Viva Vision has LED's but I never saw video on it.

    Just finished walling off the GG old cage and Dupars area. The High Limit room is not affected.

    I thought this was a Rodney Dangerfield impersonator at first.

    A view not seen in years if ever.

    I'm sure you're joking but you do take some nasty shots at the DT Nation.

    I hope you can take a joke because you're just like a hooker with two vaginas. Many resent you for your "holier than thou" attitude.

    When you hangout at the #Vegas classic, stuff like this tends to happen. Rhonda from Wisconsin hit an incredible #jackpot on our popular Million Degrees slot machine- a whopping $1,453,640.47!

    She was personally congratulated by our owner, Derek Stevens, who noted this as the largest jackpot of his career. Rhonda was even rockin’ a sweatshirt from our sister property, the D Las Vegas!"

    4Queens is really a good place to play VP. Good pay tables, fast service at the bars and a good cash back comp system. I cashed $105 (I didn't know I had) when I rolled in town Sunday and after modest play I have $14. I had 715 points when I finished today but don't ask me about Theo, ADT or shoe size. Coin in either, don't ask CI.

    As casino's fall, the Plaza plots their return to power and take back Fremont Street. Good Lord they still have that video screen up? I haven't seen that from outside in years.

    Inside Neonopolis, Axe Hole targets. Stay in your lane. The guy tried to sell me on a franchise opportunity. Becuase no one can buy a hatchet and huck it at a tree.

    I don't see this Fortune Cup horse racing game taking hold. 8 pages of "Basic game rules". I don't wanna read 8 pages I wanna bet $.50 and get a drink. The horses aren't restricted to the lanes so they got that going for them.

    I'm not much of a VP guy, but I'm curious why the straight flush shows "WIN 229" when the payoff schedule says 250. Looks like you got gypped out of 21 quarters.........

    Wow, the payback for that at Venetian is better than Red Rock according to the Wizard!

    Good luck the rest of the way!
