I'm flying tomorrow night from Anchorage to Vegas. It's getting colder and darker here, so I'm looking forward to the next few weeks. I like to stay in comped rooms and have to move a lot. I start at MSS, go to 4Q's, to the D, to Gold Coast, to Golden Gate, back to the D, back to 4Q's for an invitational promotion, onto DTG, and finishing at Freemont. It's been years since I've stayed at GC (or anywhere outside of Downtown) and am a first timer at DTG. Since my last TR, MSS dropped me to Casino rates starting November and El Co dropped my mailers in October. Fortunately, The D and GG have decided they like me more than ever, Boyd's Sapphire rates still include some free weekday nights, and DTG wants to make my acquaintance. I play a lot of VP and meticulously detail my playing sessions. This was a running joke in my first TR. You aren't going to see a Royal Flush picture and guess how well I must be doing. My jackpots have context, and you'll be able to see if I'm up or down and how I got there. On my May and June trip, I hit 7 Royals. This trip will probably be a bit more of a struggle. I also like to share about comps. It's common knowledge that gamblers can get free rooms, food and FP. I think it's less commonly understood that this is achievable playing games that the house doesn't have an edge on. I'm on a bit of a quest to find the best comped beer, especially D.T. Tuesday morning, I plan to be at BHB. I hear that they know carry Space Dust, so I'll probably be drinking more than usual. Time to pack.
