    Have any of you ever found anything worth keeping while in Vegas? I lost a key fob not to long ago. No one turned it in sad to say.

    A newfound appreciation for how much I love my wife. Something about Vegas turns us into newlyweds after close to 36 years of marriage. Thirty-six Vegas trips and counting since 2010.

    Found 3 mobile phones over the years, pretty common occurrence, turned them in.

    Found a $20 bill in the aisle next to my machine, watched and waited as I played, no one came looking. When the guy who wipes the machines eventually came by, I gave it to him.

    Lost a diamond (clip on) earring at Orleans, went and checked back for two days, was never turned in, may have been sucked up in the vacuum, that one stung. My bad.

    Found a nice Callaway Men's Watch in the sofa of a Cabana at the Rio pool. Reported it to pool staff and Hotel security. Nobody came looking for it.

    Found a TITO in a slot machine. There was a couple playing a machine next to me they obviously had been enjoying Vegas :drunk:got up to leave and took their rewards card but left the TITO. I waited a second and looked, I at it (i usually don't but they were acting like they won) and it was over $600 so I hold on to it and hit my service light I figured that with a players card they should be able to do something to figure out who go the money. Slot attendant showed up and a minute later the couple stumble back to claim their money.

    For me a few spins later....nothing cash out my TITO for some change and walk away.

    $10 bill on the floor at Caesar's Palace near the fountain by checkin on my last trip, with no one anywhere near it that could have just dropped it, so I pocketed it.

    First solo trip several years ago, I was playing a bunch of hit-and-run blackjack up and down the strip. Stopped in the Wynn for my first time ever, signed up for the Red Card and got $5 or $10 free play. Played that on an old DaVinci Diamonds machine and turned it into $16 cash. While on my way to cash in my TITO, I found $20 on the floor. The place was dead, and there was no one around at all, so I slipped it into my pocket. Then sat at a $15 BJ table all by myself and made about $200 in less than 15 minutes. Have not gambled at the Wynn since.

    I was playing bar top video poker on one of my trips last year.
    The man next to me got up and left, chasing tail.
    Bartender points it out to me that he had left credits on the machine, about $15.
    I printed out the TITO and held on to it for a while to see if he returned. He did not.
    I went to the machine and converted it to cash and put it in the bartender's tip glass.

    I've found lots of great times in Vegas and have left with loads of memories. Here are a few other items I've encountered on our trips:

    I helped this lost fellow get home to Albertsons.

    These might be Criss Angel's keys.

    Phones, phones and more phones!
    2 New I phones stacked together next to a machine at the Linq.
    Later that trip at flamingo, found another one by the bubble craps machine. Turned them in at the cage both times.
    The only money I found was a tito for Sam's Town for $60 at the Shirt sale place in Casino Royale.
    Nowhere to turn that one in.
    We were leaving for home in a short while, so I kept it and sent it in by mail when I got home. Didn't feel too guilty about it.:rolleyes:

    I don't know how people can be so careless with their expensive smartphones, but I found an iPhone X sitting on a VP machine that I started playing during a recent visit to the Blue Chip Casino in Indiana. I see the same thing happening in Vegas quite often too. Occasionally, the person will return to the machine looking for their phone, but if they don't then I turn it in to security.

    We found a $100 bill on the carpet in Bellagio that goes from the elevators to Hyde. It was hard to see since it was folded very small and on the brightly colored carpet. I always walk looking ahead so that I don't trip over anything so I spotted it.
