    Hi all,

    New guy here - first post.

    I've enjoyed lurking on this site for a few weeks now and figured I'd start posting since I seem to be just as much of a degenerate as the rest of you.

    Quick introduction:

    Turning 32 at the end of the month, married but no kids yet, and from the Midwest. I will pretty much bet with anyone and on anything, but in a casino my games are craps and BJ. I don't play slots with the exception of one game at the Cosmo that seems to just call my name. I didn't make it to Vegas right away after turning 21 because I never had a bankroll that I thought was big enough to warrant a trip. In my mid 20's, my best friend told me "if you go out there you'll fall in love, but either you'll never come home or you'll come back in a body bag". At the time, when I was younger, he was probably right (I liked to party...a lot).

    Anyway the whole Vegas trip just never happened.......until last month. My wife and I wanted to do something other than the normal beach trip so we decided on a week in Vegas. We stayed at Cosmo and absolutely fell in love. Gambling in Vegas was obviously amazing, as you could get action everywhere you looked, but we enjoyed some great restaurants and shows as well. My wife isn't a big gambler at all - she's the "lets sit by the pool all day" type, while I'm the exact opposite. Since it was just us two, I couldn't really fire it up like I wanted to, but we still did pretty well. I brought 5k for the trip and came home with $4,600. We paid for everything in cash (meals, shows, drinks, cabs, shopping etc...). We spent roughly 3,700 on non-gaming things, which means that I was up about $3,300 at the tables. By the end of the trip, I had her loving the craps table so hopefully I can get a bit more play in next time.

    Sorry for all of the rambling. Long story short is that now I have the itch bad. Vegas was like heaven on earth for me and I can't wait to get back.

    My birthday is at the end of this month and of course my wife asked what I wanted. The first thing out of my mouth was "all I want is to go back to Vegas". The next day, we received a mailer with 4 comped nights and $200 in FP. Well that was easy...

    So Mrs. Hard4 and I will be back, staying in a comped terrace 1 bedroom at Cosmo from 6/30 - 7/4.

    The goal for this trip is to simply go home with more money than we came with. After being there for a week last time, I'm worried that 4 nights will be too short of a trip.

    Bankroll for this trip is $7,500.

    Only 8 more days to go......let the countdown begin.

    Nice first post! Good luck on your trip. I'm leaving the day before you get in so I'll make sure there's enough $$$ left for you!

    Awesome... really looking forward to the ride.

    @Ketelmaster will be out there with his old lady... I highly recommend meeting up with him. His wife will keep your wife occupied while you and the Ketelmaster "fire it up."

    At least she did that for me! :)

    Great first post. Careful, a lot of folks win their first couple trips and increase their bank role on to give all their winnings back.

    Obviously we all hope that doesn't happen!
