    My Trip Report

    In a taxi heading to Dublin airport to make my ‘6 monthly’ trip to Vegas from Dublin. This was originally meant to be solo trip number 2 but a friend of mine is coming along too. He is a proper gambler so do not envisage him slowing me down. I am happy to point out that I have a very understanding wife who allows me to scratch my vegas itch and leave her alone with our son.

    I had booked one night in the Cosmo and 3 nights in the Bellagio but have just changed it to one night in the Wynn (comped through Wynn Slots App) and 3 nights in Bellagio (Fountain view room, $350 FP and $200 Resort Credit).

    I have stayed in the Wynn over 5 times before I am looking forward to having 24 hours gambling there and possibly getting back on their Radar. Mrs M loves the Wynn and will most likely join me for my next Trip next March.

    This is the first time I have booked a room through a host versus through the Mlife site, not sure if it will make a difference with Back-end comps but will keep you posted.

    My two most recent trip were in March for my 40th (https://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?threads/this-is-40-bellagio-and-cosmo-march-6th-12th-craps-vp-slots.160014/
    )

    And last September when I was Solo (https://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?threads/first-ever-solo-trip-craps-vp-slots-jerry-seinfeld-queen-bellagio-sept-6th-10th.154713/


    I play a lot of Craps, a lot of VP and a lot of Slots. If Mrs M is with me I will typically go for a few high-end meals but that is unlikely with my friend (lets call him ‘C’).

    C is booked into Park MGM for the 4 nights. My wife was suggesting I let him stay with me and change my room to a Double but my response to her was “But what about when I am bringing hookers back to the room?” - which got an eye-roll. Seriously though, I did consider it, but it would take away from the vacation to have to share a room so I didn’t offer. I arrive 6 hours earlier than him on Thursday so will get some serious play in before he arrives. C is more of a poker and Black Jack player, so I will be ‘forced’ to partake in some of that too.

    I am attempting to organise a Group Slot pull in the Cosmo at 130pm on Saturday and we have 7 people confirmed so far which is pretty good. @Crawfordshire organised a great one last September which I am trying to replicate.

    No plans set in stone at all. I would typically have at least a show and restaurant booked at this stage but I am going to go with the flow this time. Def Leopard are playing this weekend as is Bruno Mars – neither is really getting me excited but I would probably pick Def Leopard if pushed. Also tempted by Bill Maher in the Mirage on the Saturday night but it is at 10pm so kind of takes up a big chunk of the night.

    We might check out On the Record in the Park MGM and have a voucher for free entry for two people though MyVegas.

    I have a good feeling about this trip so expect to see multiple Royals and Craps’ rails full of black chips.

    Also expect drunken nonsensical updates.

    Enjoy your trip and keep us updated. Good choice not sharing the room. Especially with the Jetlag you’ll need the flexibility for naps etc.

    Landed and ina taxi to the wynn. First through US immigration and bag came out second on the carousel.....therefore luck is in so need to gamble big ...... plan is to checkin and hit slots before going to room as that worked out amazing on the last trip where i won 1000 before getting to the room.... past performance is always an indicator of future performance yes?

    Have a blast!

    Agree on the no room sharing. I hate sharing a room with a friend. Someone always has to compromise.

    Bam! I am looking forward to the slot pull on Saturday as well, thanks for organizing.

    I got checked in today at Delano, and so far so good. Going to watch the game and then see what the tables have in store.

    Have a great trip!
    I am totally with you on not wanting to share a room! It's just not a "vacation"!
