    Did you ask for a bingo card when you were at Skyline? It's $200 if you get all the quads, but it'll take 40-45 quads on average to "fill in all the blanks."

    Hahahahah - I just realized I misread your question. Yes, I did - six down, seven to go. I'm leaving the rest of my initial response below in case it's helpful to someone.

    The 10 AM Mon-Sat Bingo they bring around cards about 10 minutes in advance.

    For the bartop blackout bingo, just ask your bartender when you get your first quad. Make sure you keep the quad on your screen until you get all your sign offs. The bartender, a slot tech, and a security guard need to initial each quad. Plus one card a month is a bonus card (this month is 8s), where you can use the second quad as a free space (don't use this until you are going for the last quad to complete a card). I was chatting with the security guy last night and he mentioned the other woman at the bar (it was pretty empty) held the speed record - she apparently filled an entire bingo card in just over 2 hours and 30 minutes - that's a hell of a run on single handed VP.

    Lunch break at Skyline for coffee and bingo. Won $50 chasing the progressive (up to $1,886) plus won the bingo game for $25 and knocked off a couple more quads towards blackout bingo.

    In other news, I tier matched my lifetime Marriott Platinum status to Wyndham Diamond status to Caesar's Diamond status. It's been working it's way through the various systems, but as of today I'm officially Diamond at CET until January 31, 2021. Probably won't make it to the strip this time, but I could see myself using the Diamond shows in the future and I'll have to figure out how to best use the $100 dining credit - maybe I'll treat myself to Sterling brunch one of these days.

    Congrats on matching to Diamond! For what it's worth you may want to re-think the Sterling brunch for your $100 dining credit . Went in December and it was not very good-especially if you are going for the lobster tails-they were mushy and pretty tasteless. The rest of the food was fairly good but not worth the cost even with the bottomless champagne/mimosas. We had been looking forward to it for months. There were four of us and we were all disappointed.

    Thanks for the heads up - that does sound disappointing. I don't mind spending $$$$ on brunch, but it better be a fabulous brunch. Mushy lobster tails is not fabulous.

    If I were you I'd use the $100 celebration dinner on a seafood tower at a restaurant that offers such a thing during brunch hours (and possibly a cocktail or two to round off the $100 since you have to use it all in one shot), and then go to a "regular" brunch buffet for the actual brunch-like items. About the same $ as Sterling Brunch... but with what will ultimately be a far higher quality of seafood, which to me far outweighs the novelty of AYCE. Plus any of the seafood tower you don't eat you can take to-go (can't do that at a buffet, of course), which would make for an interesting snack at some point in the 48 or so hours that follow :)

    Baby has a tumbling class and work was done, so off to Green Valley. I missed cashing in the VP tournament by 3,000 points. Womp womp. Did some slotting around and ended up losing $10.

    After baby's bed time it was off to Skyline for live country music and progressive chasing. Someone had recently hit as progressive was around $1,250 when I started. Was poking around some other machines while waiting for security to sign my bingo card, and a few have $.50 9/6 JoB progressive (was at $2,200) and $1 9/6 JoB. I ticked one more quad off my bingo card - three left to go - and finished the session down $50. Then off to Fiesta Henderson where I played some Farmville and won $275.

    “Lunch” break at Skyline. Won $100 and knocked off two more quads. Just need 5s (or 8s as wild card) to complete.

    Agreed 100%. The 7x points used to be on their website but isn’t anymore. Signs are still up in the casino and I’ve been getting 7x on my bartop play.

    Popped over to Green Valley Ranch and did some Farming - winning $325 and getting one more box of chocolates.

    Well, I guess if you are going to accidentally hit max bet, that was the hand to do it.
