    Harrahs craps is 10. Aquarius craps $5 with ATS. In for 200 out for 800 after a 20 dollar tip. Dealers were on the ATS, they had hard ways and place bets. They made a chunk of change. A picture from the stall as requested! Most fun I’ve had at a table this year! Dealers were into it. Guys beside me were making bets for them the dealers and me, we were all super best friends! 622F1092-504F-41C1-BBD5-EE63B9F782EE.jpeg

    Is it the historical ATS payouts or the 31-150-31 ones?

    Iirc you now usually see 30-150-30 but Jerry's Nugget has 34-175-34.

    Aquarius is 35-175-35 if I remember correctly.

    We got Pinup pizza for a late dinner and stayed in the room the rest of the night. After walking around in 115 degree heat we were beat. And it was quiet compared to El Co so we were in bed at 9ish and turned off the lights around 10.

    More in Aquarius, they had High Card Flush, 3 card, 4card frenzy (Crazy 4s) and UTH all open for $5. Wife lost 100 quickly at High Card but said she had a great dealer.

    We are going to check out Edgewater and play a bit more at Aquarius before leaving. Wife lost a lot yesterday at slots but made a strong comeback at bubble craps and electronic craps on the Casino Wizard machines. We are still doing ok on our bankroll. Hoping for a few hits before we drive back to Vegas and check into Vdara.

    No real plans after checkin. I’m pushing for Ellis Island this evening :)

    That's the best part of a great Craps game, everyone in on the action and becoming best friends (for the moment at least!)

    No tables at Edgewater. The place is all owned by the same company but has different brand casinos in each section. But you can use accumulated slot points to redeem doodads at the slot club center, reminds me of an arcade where you accumulate tickets for stuffed animals -- but for adults.

    Aquarius craps opened at 10am. It’s was 10 this morning. Couldn’t get the same table going, lost 200 but it was still fun. Wife had a few slot hits and played electronic craps and won a little. We decided to head back to Vegas.

    Stopped at Freeds Bakery as we’ve heard lots about it. Lots of goodies for a snack later. Pictures will be up later.

    We checked into Vdara (parked at Aria) City Corner Fountain View Suite. 53rd floor. Really nice views.

    Money line pizza slices for dinner. So hungry I forgot to take a picture. Wife played slots at Luxor and I played at the eSports center for 2 hours to save some money. Played League of Legends with friends back home. Had a good time for 25 dollars. Wife made 400.

    Walked to Park MGM where people were lining up for Bruno Mars. Played $15 craps (I said I wouldn’t, wife suggested it). In for 200 out for 325 after 4 shooters. Played really conservative and shot ok.

    Bankroll is mostly in tact from the morning. Still have money we planned to use that we haven’t taken out of the bank. Wife got a drink and is drawing her bath.

    Dessert from Freeds Bakery last night. The maple pecan cookie was very good. My wife’s lemon something cake was great as well. 16543A53-D840-4085-B16B-F17AF35F3C79.jpeg 10D75EB5-E510-4D0D-9396-61B523C19E24.jpeg

    Sorry I've lost track. Where are you staying tonight and tomorrow? I imagine craps minimums on strip are awful today with CFB kicking off.

    We are staying at the Vdara. Minimums are crazy high. We hit Jerry’s and Cannery this morning.

    Cannery I broke even wife got slaughtered at slots. Jerry’s we both lost at UTH. Broke even at craps but had a really poor time. Soooooooo much slow center action. Grinded hard to get my money back. Wife broke even.

    Pizza Rock for our anniversary dinner!

    Back to Vdara, I stayed in the room, wife went to Bellagio and played a little and watched the fountains. Heading down to Aria for an hour of slot play before heading up to the room for the evening.

    Our trip is almost over. One day to go. Home stretch!
