    The Walking Dead game looks pretty cool. But you say it stinks, so I will have to cross that off my list on ones to play. Never was a big slot player, but your TRs have convinced me to spend a little time on front of a few.
    This summer I did play the Wonder Woman one a little bit. I hit a few features. Tell her I say said hi if you see her... ;)

    I really enjoyed watching your videos on your TR! Thank you for taking the time to post them. I feel the same way about Cosmo. I know it's fancy and high class, but I prefer casinos with a bit more character.

    Great report, love the variety of slots you're playing and it makes me want to go out sooner rather than later. I had to look up the meaning of your phrase "chalk and cheese" and I may add this one to my repertoire. Also, your comment about the Cosmo vs. the Cal made me chuckle. I had the same feeling when in the Bellagio, all of the glitz is lost on me, I couldn't wait to get out. But, guess where my wife wants to stay on our next visit?

    Any comments on the food or drink that you've experienced so far?

    Really enjoying your videos, especially your recaps at end of day!
    For a minute, when you were playing at Mirage, i thought you were videotaping my recent play there in December!! Same machines, same underwhelming wins, but enjoying the experience all the same.

    Looking forward to your downtown TR....

    If you want to see walking dead wins, check StevieD's reports. He's hit quite a few handpays at $3 bets.

    Excellent report so far Matt! Really enjoying it! Hope to see even bigger wins! Cosmo is more fun late night on the weekends when all the club girls and hookers are walking around, imo. ;)

    Nice, videos on Youtube. I watched several last night.

    I am not a slot guy at all, but these bonuses intrigued me.

    I think I may have to play some Top Dollar in March.

    In all my trips, I have never been inside Circus Circus. Thanks for going there, I may have to check this out for a bit on my next visit.

    How was the Budweiser drink service at CC?

    Great report and I'm loving the video's, I have stayed at TI a couple of times and it is a nice place to stay although agree with the food options.I like the casino bar there and of course Gilleys as well. First time I have seen inside Circus Circus, I might venture in there for the first time in my upcoming trip

    These are enjoyable reports. Do you get any heat from the casinos for your video taping?
    I know that I have had casinos tell me I couldn't take pictures and yet you manage to record bonus rounds in their entirety.
    Keep up the good work and win a bundle!

    Good Luck Downtown! I really like Circus Circus, but would never stay there either. It is a bit smokey at times though.

    Glad to see CC getting some love!

    It's one of our go to places for frozen drinks. Couple bucks cheaper than most places! The only 100%+ return VP machines left on the strip doesn't hurt either!

    Also sad to see the Riviera dark. That was such a beautiful place. As for your stardust commentary, it wasn't closed because it wasn't profitable. It was closed to make way for "Echelon Place", but Boyd halted construction when the economy turned south. Finally resorts world will hopefully put something in worthy of stardust's legacy. Or at least I assume because I never visited Stardust. I missed it on my first trip in 2001. :(

    And thanks for the views of Mt. Charleston. Looks beautiful! Hopefully driving back down wasn't too much trouble. I hate driving in snow.

    And Double Triple Diamond Deluxe with Cheese has a copyright date of 2002. So not even 15 years old yet. My first trip, I had a love affair with "Texas Tea". So yeah, slots are radically different now.

    Great report and thanks for sharing. Downtown is always enjoyable even more so when you win big $$. Knock them dead.

    Thanks everyone :))

    hammie, I don't really do high end restaurants when travelling solo so it's fast food most of the time. Drinks wise I've found the best service in Circus Circus, The Cal & particularly Downtown Grand.

    It's reassuring to know I'm not the only one to prefer casinos with a bit of character :))

    aa0154, I played Wonder Woman last night! See Part 5 video below...

    Pauldixon, I've only had a problem in Wynn so I left. Everywhere else doesn't seem to care.

    Part 5 here;
