    Is that the MLife app? I don't gamble at M Life properties. I do like how it tracks your stats.

    No, that is the iXPenseit app I use to track my gambling budget.




    But MLIFE does do a good job of showing your win/loss information on their website.

    Yeah I agree. He's in a pretty great comp sweet spot. I generally avoid slots like the plague, but if slots at $1000-$1500 coin in a day could get me Vdara, I'd consider it!

    Nice pics and vids as always, @Fligster!

    I actually get regular rooms at Bellagio and Aria as well. Had same 4 nights $50 RC and $50 Fp but since had three people wanted larger room and king bed with queen sleeper.

    I feel overcomped but not complaining

    Love your trip reports Fligster. You always do lots of walking around Vegas. I was there same time as you, and the crowds were insane everywhere. Never doing Vegas again for Christmas, that's for sure. Thanks for posting the food receipts. I always stay on the Strip, and I should be used to it, but the prices for some of that food is outrageous. $20.00 bucks for a mediocre looking burger? Seriously? In and Out and Shake Shack burgers look and probably taste better.

    I agree prices on the strip are ridiculous for food. I definitely eat cheaper when I am there solo. For burgers I like Bobby’s burger palace, and they aren’t too bad price wise.

    I just booked a February work trip (with a personal trip on the back end) Will be back February 16 to 23. It’s a little soon, but is it ever too soon to go back to Vegas .i’ll be getting my BBQ this trip.

    A little late reading your report, but really enjoyed seeing a Christmas time report. I would love trying Vegas over the Christmas holidays someday...interesting how crowded it was.

    Beautiful pictures and great report as always! Glad you and your family enjoyed your time together and how cool to get to fly first class. Thanks for the report!

    Video of our Son's thoughts on Vegas attractions we visited. I wanted to show if an older kid could have some fun in Vegas.

    Thanks for the video on the expense app. I downloaded it and am all set to go for my trip next week. I think this may help me visibly see how much I am spending. When I am up I tend to go a little overboard and I think this will visually help me see that I could go home with winnings if I manged them better!
