    Trips to Vegas:
    19
    My wife and I are set to embark on our journey to Vegas tomorrow evening (8/12). We will landing in Vegas about 9:00 Local Time. This will be my tenth trip to Vegas and I believe my wife’s sixth.

    This report will be a semi-live report. It may or may not have a lot of pictures. The end will have as detailed an account as I can remember. This is not my first trip report. I used to complete them on 2+2…

    Originally a few months back when I booked the flights and rooms I was going with a few friends, when they all backed out and I decided I would still attend the trip, solo. Months go by and I thought what the hell, why not invite my wife for the weekend? I will still get two days solo and she can join me for the weekend. That slowly turned into her joining me on the flight out on Wednesday. Which I am absolutely happy about. I love spending time with my wife and she is the furthest thing from a nag so having her around is always enjoyable. She is pretty damn sexy too… We have three kids under five so anytime we get is incredible. Thanks, Nana… My mom will be with our kids and two dogs.

    We will be staying at the Mirage. The initial plan was to stay at SLS comped for two nights, but I got a very cheap rate for the Mirage for those two nights that I deemed were worth it so all four nights will be at the Mirage. I plan to improve from my Pearl MLife Status a great deal with as many hours as I will be putting into the gambling. I achieved Diamond Status in the past over at CET, but decided to give MLife a try going forward.

    In the past couple of weeks we have watched a few of my favorite Vegas Movies.

    Casino 7/25/2015 The Cooler 7/28/2015 Oceans 11 and 13 7/29/2015 Rounders 7/30/2015 21 8/6/2015 Hangover Part 1 8/7/2015

    On the flight out we plan to watch Vegas Vacation, since we will be at the Mirage.


    I have been in contact with a Host from the Mirage, WH. Plan to meet up with him Thursday morning to discuss my game plan and for him to give me a general idea what to expect for the backend comps since I do not have any real street cred at the Mirage.

    The biggest thing this trip is to play it by ear and go with the flow, for the most part. We have never had a trip where we over planned it has always worked out, as many of you know.

    Plans include:

    Thursday Night I will go chip hunting… This trip I need to get Cromwell, Westgate and The Linq. $1 and $5 chips

    My Chip Rules: You must gamble $100 for any amount of time, but you cannot go directly to the cage. Anytime you win $1000 or more your first time at a casino you get a $25 chip

    I have read almost every trip report posted on here since I joined and the timing of keeping my hyped and excited for my trip could not have been any better.

    Here are a few of my pics from previous trips…

    The $20 Bill and five $1s are for a co-worker. His terms were, "bet red, then bet red again." He wants a benjamin...

    Thank you!


    We hope to continue the run good from our last couple of weeks. I have taken down a poker tournament and won $700 at our local Indian Casino playing blackjack and some slots.

    The storm before the calm...

    Full display of chips.


    My kids recently ran through all of my dollar chips. I had them in a specific order, well now they are just on display.

    Gambling budget for each day. This is a necessary step. Most gambling will be done late night which helps, but I, as many have, have visited the ATM many times...


    This is my safety net to enjoy everyday.

    This anticipation is a real thing. I've got one project to wrap up, then I'm on easy street. Once this clock says 3:00 PM I am out! Might even leave at 2:00...

    Allow me to be the wise one...

    Had some Vietnamese from a local place for lunch and this was my fortune.

    She is a very fun drunk. It's one of my favorite forms of her. She lets loose a little. She is slightly reserved without the booze. Few mixed drinks, we party.

    Officially off work!!!

    Going to get a few things for the house, load bags, then head to Will Rogers International.

    "My bags are packed up, I'm ready to go..."

    OKC airport has two terminals. Very easy to maneuver. Made it through security without anyone touching my shaft.

    We just had a simple dinner at Humble Pie in the PHX airport.


    We had french fries as an appetizer, cheese pizza, sangria, Stella, cheesecake and coffee with baileys.

    Phoenix Airport is nice. The staff at Humble Pie is great. Quick, efficient and personable. A waitress just broke a glass on the floor and acted very professional about it, her first thought was to check on all of the patrons. I liked that a lot.

    We made an attempt to jump onto the next flight to Vegas which flew out 2 hours earlier than ours. Since we booked with Rapid Rewards Points it was going to cost 20,000 points... Um, no thanks? My total for my flight from OKC to LAS was 24,000. Now we are just relaxing in the comfy chair of the Humble Pie, which we requested at the host. My view includes watching planes take off and watching Southwest load snacks on the plane.

    Good news, we will get to fly into Vegas at night time. Vegas night flights are the best...

    We are both exhausted. Long day of work and well, my wife stays at home with three kids. She works harder than any of us (our middle child doesn't understand no, just won't budge no matter what we try), for free...

    Seven minutes ahead of schedule.


    "Mirage, no tunnel..."

    $20 down the drain at the airport, no surprise there.



    Just checked into our room!

    Not a bad set up for as little time as will be spent in here.

    Decent strip view. Asked for the comp upgrade and the attendant denied me, then proceeded to ask for paid upgrades and she was like, "ha sorry we are all booked but I can try to get you a high floor with a strip view."


    Appreciated the offer and gave the bribe anyway... She was smoking hot. $20 only. Ever. Never more.


    We are both running on fumes. Gonna get a little gamble in, but not planning for too much tonight. The rest of the weekend we go hard.

    Wife officially stayed in the room


    Going to play BJ and craps at The Mirage.


    No S17 under $100 per hand.

    Played black jack won $400 in 10 minutes.


    I highly considered cashing out but wanted to play more, bad call.


    Ended up dumping $300 buy in total.


    Took the rest of my bankroll for the night to craps and won $86 on a $200 buy in.


    Proceeded to play a little VP to no avail.


    Played Ultimate X. Addicting! Bad news is I bet $50 my first spin... Whoops lesson learned. I put in $100 and was instantly down $50... Ended up donating the rest over time but throughly enjoyed it.


    Took my last $80 to BJ and turned into $130 in 3 min.


    Proceeded to the craps table to lose the $130.


    Bed time.


    -$500 day one.

    Wide awake...


    "Hey, it's 5 am, ready to get after it?"


    Wife: in a daze "no, because it's 5 am"

    I'm up...


    Here are some pics from last night.

    Going to walk around, get some coffee and explore. Pics to come.

    Got in an early gambling session. Craps at The Mirage.


    I was the only shooter, shot once. Had the boys on the line every roll and two wayed the hard ways

    Come out roll, 10. I proceeded with caution initially. $12 6 and 8. Two way Hard Ten. $5 me $1 them, player control.

    9, 5, 9, 4, HARD TEN! Pay the line! PARLAY! OK, easy game...

    Come out, YO ELEVEN!

    I play the field as my hedge on the come out roll so YO is my favorite, naturally.

    Point is ten again. I take my win from the Field and pull $10 more from my stack for max odds.


    Finally put $10 on the 5 and 9.


    4... Ok, well the one number I don't make shit on, makes sense... 8, 10, the easy way!

    Come out - 8


    9, 5, SEVEN OUT

    With a few parlays here and there left approx. $130 on the table when I cashed out $375.

    +175 in about 15 minutes

    +175 on the day -$325 on the trip

    Vegas 5AM facing East.

    Decided to go check out The Strip while the temperature was decent at best. Roughly 90 degrees at 6 AM..

    First thing downstairs went to Starbucks to get my fuel for the day. Three hours of sleep is not enough, but once your eyes open in Vegas… GOOD LUCK.

    As previously mentioned I asked my wife to come down with me at 5AM… Got laughed at. Surprisingly she remembered it. We are both up and going to head down to get her, her first coffee.


    While she slept I proceeded to hit the strip and take some pictures.

    At the Linq, I witnessed a guy and his girlfriend/wife fighting at 6 AM she said, where have you been all night?" He's like, "it was nothing, it was nothing, it was nothing, I'm here now, I'm here now.” She said, “F*** You!” Odds are it wasn’t nothing…

    I have been coming to Vegas for the last four years, I must say it’s incredible what they’ve done with Imperial Palace/The Quad/The Linq. Truly incredible. Went from a shithole you didn’t want to enter to somewhere you actually want to be.

    Watched a working girl get picked up. The ruin on the strip in the form of human beings is sad. I feel for those less fortunate and would love to hear their back story.


    Trading Card

    Tonight I will get to start my collection.

    Pool time.


    +470 so far today

    -$30 for the trip

    Oasis Pool at The Mirage is nice. Calming. No kids... Tilts me that people bring their kids here.


    $55 per chair but you also get an umbrella and free fruit, well it's not free, obviously but they aren't charging you extra for it.

    Poolside lunch. $16

    Bacon turkey club with fries and pickle.

    Left my wife at the pool about 1:00. I got that itch to GAMBOL, and as you all know, when you get that itch... YOU scratch the hell out of it.

    In that hour and a half time frame I played Craps, High Limit Slots, back to Craps, Roulette and back to HL Slots.

    Before you think I won an incredible amount of money, allow me to clear that up, quickly. I won $85. That does, make me positive for the trip and I needed the final HL slot to make that happen.

    I know the dry spell will come, but the last 7 machines I have played HL slots on I am up a combined $1400 without ever having to put in more than $200. I realize that luck chart is insane, but I will take it.

    Craps was crap overall. Lost a $300 buy in right off the bat and the second time around I lost $170. The HL Slots are what kept me in the mix.

    Roulette is a game I have never really played other than Red or Black. I focused on 5 and 8 and cashed about the same amount as I showed up with.

    Rest and Relaxation time before we hit the town for the evening.

    Wife is getting her nose pierced before dinner… She is scared and excited. I think she will look amazing!

    +555 on the day

    +55 on the trip

    Raining and flooding in Vegas! Strip is in good shape, though.

    Headed to the MGM Grand.

    Yesss! Been handing them out all day. Some great reactions.


    One lady thought they were fake...

    Nose hasn't happened, yet. Will update.


    Spent the night at MGM and The Mirage.


    Gambled a lot this evening, no good news. All bad.


    Craps just hasn't gotten me into any good spots. Waiting for that hot shooter.


    -900 on the day.
    -1400 on the trip.

    Gambling update.


    Lost $500 early this morning at craps. So was down $1900

    Then when we hit the $4800 put us in a good spot, up $2900. I'm not counting the wife's $900 shopping win. It's hers now.


    +$4300 today +$2900 on the trip.

    Going to Caesars. Then PH for the wife to pierce nose.

    "Ya, Honey, sure lets go through the Forum Shops..."

    Nothing happened on the craps table with RJ.

    At Lotus now... Wife's first time...

    Went to Westgate via the monorail... What a shit hole. Good news, won $150 while collecting my chip for the casino, won't ever be back.


    It's a mix of the Circus Circus crowd and the people that left the Riviera...

    Much preferred the LVH.


    GREAT craps dealers though. They were kind and asked my name and used it continuously. They liked that I tipped, only one at table.


    Lotus is soooooo good... More later.

    I married up!

    Well, after a short wrestling match we both passed out. Maybe we needed the nap.


    Just woke up. Getting dressed for a Friday night on the town.

    Played around the mirage.


    Ended up in high limit blackjack.


    Up to $2500 on a $1500 buy in.


    Dumped it all back, like a gentleman.


    Drinks were stiff.


    Heading to the Bellagio to roll some dice.

    Bellagio = wash.


    Craps nothing hot

    Played a little slot and won $40 or so.


    Bed time.

    Going to Hash House A Go Go.


    Just played a little craps. +110 in 19 minutes. Rolled by yours truly.


    Mandalay Bay after breakfast.

    Our feet and taxis.

    Booked a quick session at The Linq. +140

    Table was rolling!!

    Hash House A Go Go won't seat you unless your whole party is there...

    Wife had to come get me. Showed up 7 out.


    So that sucked, but made some money.


    Considered pulling all my bets ($170 on the table after a $100 buy in, $10 table pressing up and odds on the five) when she walked up, slightly hangry. She said, "let's go we both have to be up there to seat us"


    Me: " not a chance in hell walking away from a roll."

    Walked when he rolled seven next roll... She wins.

    Little update on last night. While walking around was offered weed and blow twice. And solicited once.


    Wife was lagging a little behind me.


    Solicitor: "Hey sweetie, you alone tonight?"

    Me: "No, I'm here with my wife!"

    Wife: go to hell stare at potential prostitute.

    After jackpot hit yesterday gambling was rough to say the least. Had some wins and upped my play for obvious reasons, but it was indeed rough.


    Today has started out nicely. +250 before breakfast.

    Hash House... The tits. Loved it. Portions were insane.

    Just met up with Brick after a quick visit to the Mirage HL BJ.


    Terrible craps session. -$600. Never positive on any shooter.


    Before the craps session...

    Walked into HL BJ buy in $500. $100 min.


    Win lose win lose win win win

    Get in a spot where I have about $600 but I am riding the wins and had a $300 bet after about five minutes.


    88 vs 4

    Split $300 $300

    8

    Split. $300 $300 $300

    3

    Double $1200 total invested


    Card was face down. 4 comes stay. 7 comes stay


    I now have 11(any card) 12 and 15 vs 4

    Dealer flips 7. Fuck. Ok nice fuck. See you later. Shit.


    Deuce. Ace. Nine.


    Played one more hand as I was satisfied in the moment. Lost, but no biggie.


    Cashed out $2300. Then met up with Brick at craps.

    Going to relax in the room before dinner at Stack at 630.

    I had a deuce on the face down card, by the way.

    Just arrived at Stack. Lit $200 on fire in 15 min at craps table. No love on getting dinner paid for by the dice.

    Caesar Salad. Bottle of Malbec. Porterhouse. 1/2 lb of crab. Country potato gratin. Mac and cheese.


    I'm starving.

    Friends just arrived. Picked us up at Mirage.


    While waiting for him to arrive, cycled some cash at BJ.


    $300 to $1700. $2000 was my stopping point. $1700 to zero. $300 additional to $700.


    +$100 on the session.


    2 hours average bet $125(might have been low)

    Asked for my time and avg. quoted me at $80.


    What I said, I think that's low. He said ok what should it be, which I wasn't prepared for. Threw him $125 and he bit. Which means I didn't say high enough. More accurate would be about $150.


    Couldn't win a big bet until I won the $300 extra buy in.


    Lost $400 hand doubled... That's the shitty life. Which is big reason why we lost that dough.

    Rapping down the strip getting looks.


    Yes, white boy can rap. RIP Tupac.

    Just arrived at PH. Apparently my friends entire family is in town. Just shook hands with like 12 people.


    XS might be happening? Bottle service? Maybe? Free for me? Hope so, because screw that.


    I love Frank. That's my morning music every day at work. Calming. Uplifting. Wish I could have seen a show back in the day.

    We did the North Valet. Speed wasn't the goal.


    Just enjoying life. Last night in Vegas.

    My friend got the upgrade to the strip suite comped.


    Jackass gave the guy $40. I busted his balls. $20 is it. He tried to justify it and I told him that wasn't worth it. Agree to disagree.

    Before lunch craps. -$71


    I was rolling and couldn't hit hardly any numbers I had money on. I didn't have 4 or 10 and rolled them about 6 times total.


    I did make Bobby a lot of money.


    Who is Bobby? You don't know?

    Bobby was at the table and he was a business in the front party in the back kind of guy.

    Looked like Kenney Powers

    Well, Kenny Fucking Powers called my dice four times in a row.


    He said 11. Rolled an 11. He said 7. Rolled a 7. He said 4. 22 hard four.

    Ok, Bobby I'm impressed even with your heart tattoo with flames and a cross coming out of the top of the barbed wire heart.


    You probably recognized that was only three.


    Well, Bobby looks at me then proceeds to tell me to roll a 3 2 to set the point to five.


    Allow me to remind you Bobby was all in when I began my roll and hit the first point.


    So much faith in his call Bobby throws $10 on the 3 2 hopping.


    3 2 point set at five.


    Great job, Kenny, I mean Bobby. You da man... He had about $400 when no one else collected shit.

    Thought I made up the tattoo?

    Whoops. Forgot the before pics.

    Kenny Powers


    aka Bobby from Texas.


    This guy makes it out to Vegas four to five times a year, and "Damn right, I stay at The Mirage."


    Before Kenny left he was about to switch his flight, but he didn't, as far as I know.


    Kenny got on what we would call a hot roll.


    Hard 10 was his bitch.


    Kenny had a $50 hard ten. Bam. Pay the man $450.


    Pressed up to $125.


    Kenny kept hitting number after number.


    8,5,8,9, Bam hard 10.


    Kenny was rolling!

    Kenny finally cashed $3,555. Hell of an end to a trip. Kenny didn't give a flip! In case you forgot allow me to remind you that Yours truly battled Kenny back from being all in at one point.


    I grew my stack a little but left a lot on the table. Great run, Kenny.

    Didn't get a final pic as it was my roll next but Kenny left us just fine. Took the winnings to BJ and had a rough go.


    Kenny also mentioned how he knew he roll would end. He knew it wouldn't go forever. He claimed déjà vu told him so, his words, not mine. Kenny would yell when he won the big bets, but he doesn't like to because it draws attention to the table, his words did not match his action. This guy was lit!!!

    Will have final updates before the week is up.

    View after take off.

    Does anyone know when MLife updates their table information? Wanting to know when my table play will be updated on mlife.com.

    It might already be, but I know they do it all by hand so, figured I would check.

    Few photos I don't think I had in the TR.

    Final Trip Thoughts

    Go big or go home... Well, I'm no KP so home I went.


    I did not lose more than I was willing to lose, but the loss hurts knowing I had several big wins and the really big win. If I could go back, I would put some money away and have slowed down after being down the first couple of nights.


    Built into the loss is all of our expenses and some shopping money for my wife.

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Mirage. Dealers were great and the location was great. Pit Bosses were great. High Limit Room was awesome. Stiff drinks. Nice competent conversational dealers. Good for the Mirage… I got roped back in after building the $1500 up to $2500. I colored up $2500, two bananas and one purp. We sat there and talked to the dealer who was a sweetheart…decided screw it let’s play $500… After about 45 minutes I changed out all the chips and that was that.

    While playing at The Mirage Sports Bar, I clicked on the Blackjack game. I had about $85 left from when I was playing VP. I was like let’s see what $3 does. Well, I clicked it to $4 and figured I would just keep hitting it and it would reset… Nope, I had to put in the entire $85 to bet. No way to back it out. Called for an attendant and this is their solution…”You are gonna bet it, if you win, congrats. If you lose, I am gonna pay you back your $85.” That is the best kind of free roll.







    Hard to dial back when you get one trip per year. Desire to go hard the entire time is there for sure.

    Got my stats back for the entire trip from WH. These are just The Mirage. Had losses at other places, too.


    17 hours 53 minutes $97 average bet $1,414 theo

    Slots Win $4,336 Coin-In $6,548 $321 Theo


    Mentioned I'll also have my next trip comped, pending the dates.

    Forgot to mention 67,248 tier credits earned.


    Might be going back 9/18 for the VMB craps session...



    Just booked my flight for September 19 - 20. I will be in Vegas for a total of 30 hours... Probably won't sleep! I have two friends who are on the cusp of coming with me. We shall see if I can convert any of them.

    VMB Craps Roll, here I come!

    Thanks, Swimsu! Looking forward to your TR.

    $2 Bills are where its at...

    The trolls are limited and it seems action has been swift in taking care of them, which is appreciated.

    Thanks, JR! Glad you enjoyed it. Lose schmooze. It happens.
