    Hello all. Smac1961 here. The better half and I are heading to stay at the Mirage this coming week. The countdown is on....
    We usually get down to Las Vegas once or twice per year. We are mostly slot players, but we will hit a craps table or two if the bankroll allows. Some of our favorite games are:
    Anything Monopoly
    Zeus
    Wonder 4 Tower
    Buffalos
    The Old Winning Bid 2
    Wizard of Oz games
    The Flintstones
    Bubble craps
    Lobstermania
    Davinci Diamonds
    Willy Wonka
    Life of Luxury
    Lemmings

    We used to go about twice per year when we lived in Seattle as it was a much closer flight. We, like most of you, love to eat well. play well and sleep little when we are in Vegas. I can recall one time a few years ago when we were just getting into the NYNY for our second trip of the year that my wife's face lit up as we entered the casino and she simply said, "I love it here, lets stop kidding our selves and just move here". I simply replied, "we'd be destitute if we did"!

    We usually stay at Aria as we simply love the place, but I could not work out a good offer. We are staying at the Mirage for the first time. Any feedback from members on the MIrage? It really doesn't matter where we stay as home base is only a bed. We go pretty hard and hit most of the strip. We generally hit a few shows as well. We have seen all of the Cirque show except for Michael Jackson (any reviews out there?). And we love the broadway genre shows like Jersey Boys and usually hit a comedy club like Brad Garrett's or the Improv.

    We always read the great trip reports and it helps us to plan and to get excited about our next trip. I cannot tell you the restaurant and show ideas we have gotten from reading reports and living vicariously through you all. Recently, I have really been intrigued by watching the Videos of folks like Diane, Jason and SDGuy as they pool their bankrolls and hit the high limits. It is simply great viewing for like minded slot fanatics. I long for friends like that. LOL Well, I am back to my countdown until this Thursday. I plan to attempt my first ever live trip reports from Sin City. Stay solvent my friends and let the good times roll!

    Best of luck. I stayed at Mirage once back in 2013 and really enjoyed it, it's a great base to explore the north part of the strip.
    Also Carnegie Deli and California Pizza kitchen are both excellent!
    Look forward to your TR.

    We saw MJ One last year and liked it better than Ka, Love and Mystere.
    Stayed at Mirage twice but not in a few years. Enjoyed both stays. Love the pool.
    Have a great trip.

    Really looking forward to this upcoming trip for you!

    I usually stay at Palazzo, but have been spilling over to Mirage the last few trips and I thought it had a pretty good vibe and machine selection. More than anything, the location is fantastic!

    I did see the MJOne show and it was worth it, enjoyed it enough I'd be willing to see it again! Good luck on the upcoming trip and will be following you on your trip report!!

    Always great to hear someone likes our videos. Have a fun and winning trip! As long as you enjoy MJ's music you will love the Cirque show at MB. If you haven't seen Raiding the Rock Vault yet at Tropicana and like rock I recommend seeing that show.

    I really enjoyed MJOne....if you can get aisle seating, all the better.

    Good luck and look forward to seeing lots of wins!
