    Wishing you a great day!!

    FWIW, as much as I love weekending at casinos, I rarely do well Friday and Saturday nights.

    Stay on rest of the trip Chickinlips. You do not have to play. Just keep posting your observations. I am falling off the chair laughing.

    Last day in Vegas! No more winning. I WILL be going home with that $2400. Bankroll was $3k, if which I have $400 left. I could be going home with either $2800 or $2400. Either one is a win. Taking a break from it all in the room, and may head back down later.

    The mask situation has calmed way down
    Haven't seen anybody getting the business about it after Saturday. Maybe because there were so many people? It's not as bad as I thought it would be, but constantly getting bugged about it pissed me off.

    So yesterday, the power went out for a couple seconds. Everybody was screaming. Oh my god, Armageddon. Idiots. So my Buffalo machine spit out a bogus ticket. It wouldn't work in any machines, so I took it over to the cashier. You would have thought I presented a handwritten slip for $10k. Back and forth - it was $25 btw - she kept going in the back, on the phone, talking with the next lady. Finally, a slot host or whatever she WAS came up and said JUST PAY IT, THE POWER WENT OUT. Good lord! If I was going to risk going to jail by swindling dough from Caesars, it sure as hell wouldn't be $25. So many of the machines were jacked up for awhile, and sadly, the payouts were even worse after that!

    Headed back to the Linq, but I believe the power surge knocked out there AC, freaking hot in there. My face was melting with the mask. So over to Harrahs where the AC was making up for the Linq. I may lose a toe...

    Had a few nice wins, which was donated back to Caesars. A couple hundred and I think that my luck has finally turned around and start betting more. It never works out. Why I haven't learned yet is a real mystery.

    The crowds have died way down after the weekend. I should have done a Monday through Friday trip. It's nice being able to play the machines I like.

    U also wish I would have waited until Planet Hollywood opened. I love their casino, and the Cosmo is close. Flamingo is tired and needs an upgrade pretty bad. They should have at least fixed up the disgusting bathroom while everything was shut down. But the bathroom lady is super nice. Actually everyone I've dealt with was great.

    OK time to rest and gear up for the final leg of my gambling shenanigans.

    You should have changed 25 to 250 with marker pen and see what they have to say. It waaaaaas a glitch. :D

    Flamingo badly need upgrade but given their prime location guess it is hard for them to find time. Agree they should have used shutdow time to do. I love their machines and 80s and 90s music but cannot bring myself to stay. I find wiping handlea with wipes all the time. I dp have fond memories of my son prefering this to Bellagio or Aria becase pool was more kid friendly. Now he prefers Venetian. Ha.
    Wishing you lotsa luck CL!

    Well, settled on my couch at home with my 2 dogs. One of them really hasn't acknowledged my presence. He gets mad when I leave for a few days, and it might be a day or two before he will warm up to me again. He will purposely sit on Mr. C's lap and give me the side eye to show his displeasure. How dare I go to Vegas without him?

    So, no more winning. If I hadn't won early, I surely would have run out of funds. So I am grateful that I won that money. It was not a great trip, but it least it didnt suck all my dough, and in fact, it really only costed me about $400. So I will put that dough back in the bank and save it for the next time, which might be awhile.

    But hey, I did win $70 at the airport. The slots their actually felt looser than Flamingo and other casinos in the area.

    Note to travelers, get food before going to the airport. Just about every restaurant is closed at Mccarran.

    And, if you're flying American, be prepared to get crammed in like a sardine. No social distancing there! And I swear the seats on their planes are even smaller than Frontier!

    Well, that's it. I wish I had more info for you. Back to work tomorrow, and no future trips to look forward to at this point. Cheers!

    Flamingo does have worst bathroom and their carpet is worned out and everywhere is sticky. But I do like the slot selection and oldies music which used to be 60s but now 80s. So I always put some session there when I go to vegas.
    Glad you made home safe CL. Thanks for posting yet another hilarious trip filled with great observations.

    Thanks again for the great trip report!
    That's the unfortunate reality.
    At this point, I am really not sure I want to go to Vegas.
    No nothing other than gambling.
    No vibe at table games with Plexiglas and masks, just playing slots with masks on. That's no fun.
    And you need to wait a hell long time for elevators, for Uber, for everything. No.
