    Normally, I like to not only bounce around to different casino properties, but I also rarely sit at one table for more than 2 hours. (Exception for craps, where 4-6 hours and a lower rail full of squirreled away drinks is my norm)

    What is the norm for you? Table and/or Casino hopper, or do you plant and grow roots for the trip?

    Hit and run is my motto. I like seeing all of the different properties, so I typically play a shoe or two and move on to the next place. In a typical night out, it's not unusual for me to bounce up and down the strip playing at 6-8 different casinos in a night.

    I agree about craps though. If I'm having a good time, I could play at the same table until I fall over.

    I've always casino-hopped.
    In the 80s & 90s? It was two circuits:
    1. Stardust-Riviera-Westward Ho-Circus-Frontier
    2. Mirage-Harrah's-IP-Flamingo-O'Sheas-Barbary Coast.

    Since I've become a downtown player, it's all of them - MSS - Cal - Plaza - Golden Gate - Golden Nugget - 4 Queens - Fremont - 'theD' - DTG & ElCo... (yes - I left Binion's out on purpose).

    I always move around except the last day I usually post up somewhere and play all night until the plane ride home. I don't really have any loyalty to any property so I stay longer where I am winning and leave if I am not.

    I camp out at my home casino for the trip (usually MGM), but will hop around tables if not doing well

    I'm a food source for minnows compared to VBJ but his MO is my MO.

    I stay at the machine or table until I start to lose and then move on. I don't play enough to worry about lost comps.

    That's unacceptable! I was hoping for the Christmas card list, even if that means generic paper stock cards displaying poinsettias and "Happy Holidays"!!!
