    @jENBEAU Just caught up with your TR - love the pics of slots keno VP and food! The lobster ravioli at Carbone is my husband's favorite, I love the veal parm. You play such a variety of games it really keeps it interesting. Although winning is better, I agree with you only being down about $1400 after a 6 day trip is a win in my book too! Thanks for taking us along on another great TR.

    Jen, really enjoyed the report. I agree that for a 6-day trip with lots of play, being down $1400 is not too bad. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

    Loved your TR! So much fun!
    I, also, have a $3,000 budget for my trips but my trips last 14 days (all in except rental car). Because I have to make it last, and I play higher stakes than you, the action is much slower than your trip. I wouldn't do a TR because to some the trip might be as boring as regular life. :oops:

    Thank you for the awesome TR. I love all the pics - I will someday get to go solo - just have to convince my husband that I'm a big girl and the bogey man is not interested in getting me LOL!!!

    Even making minimum bets, if you play about 16 hours per day, you will still lose a decent amount. The pictures of the wins are very minimal, considering the amount of time was spent on the machines. To get comped 3 nights in Aria or Bellagio making 50 cent bets on penny machines, you know that many hours were spent on those machines.
