    Finally...
    The wait from my last trip in June felt long, although it was not. Does that get worse over time? It feels like it does.

    Planning is all done, as this is something like my 20th trip or even more in the last 10 years and also is a solo trip. I stopped planning too much. Flight, rental car, hotels all booked but the other stuff is wide open.

    Will stay at the room I love most for the first 5 nights, which is a Cosmo fountain view whatever room. Going solo the room size does not mean much, it is the view I just cannot get enough of.
    All comped including my Sterling night, with some FP on top.

    Change over for 3 nights (overlapping) to Wynn then thanks to the Wynn app. Played there a few times but never had a room. I wonder how it will compare to Cosmo. What I heard the room should be great, but location and missing balcony and view might reduce the overall rating for me. We will see. For free a great chance to try it, although meanwhile I receive at least some teaser offers for comped rooms and FP from Wynn already.

    And then I have my nearly mandatory room at an MGM place, Luxor this time, for a few days to participate in their slot tournament. And also to be able to redeem some MyVegas rewards that require a stay. Will give them enough play to renew Pearl I guess, that usually will ensure I get a new offer for my next visit. Will not really use the room, but who knows, sometimes I am just too tired when I gamble south strip to go back to Wynn or Cosmo and just take a short break at that Luxor room.

    And then there will be G2E, where I have heard so much about the last years. Got a free ticket via a board members advice, thanks again cstutor89. No idea how often I will go, depends how I like it

    There will be lots of slots with hopefully lots of wins, it is clearly my turn to win statistically, as the last trips where...expensive
    Some UTH, maybe some poker tournaments also

    Oh yes, and a lot of food for sure. Going for the first time to a running Sushi place (Kura or something like that) and probably Wynn buffet, Bellagio and Aria buffet are planned with MyVegas

    What more can I say? Two more nights...starting lunch time Saturday here in Bern, Switzerland, arriving 15-16 hours later at Cosmo as I luckily have a direct flight from Zurich this time. Travelling in business class with a lie flat bed will allow for some sleep as well...

    See some of you in Vegas hopefully soon. Will update semi-live several times a day as usual

    Those lie flat beds are super on long flights. Hopefully you get to vegas a bit rested. Good luck getting some wins! Try to leave a little for me ;)

    Well, gambling unfortunately killed my complete daily bankroll. Business as usual at the Cosmo, their slots just hate me

    This morning at least the slots do not kill me yet. No winnings but staying even is a step forward

    No it doesn't

    Is that the Philly Cheesesteak? I had one a few weeks back and it was oh so good.

    Yes it was. I thought it was lacking flavor. Still good but I would go back to the regular ones next time. Unless they have the ones with meatballs, love them

    After breakfast yesterday it all went downward again for quite a while. By early afternoon my bankroll was gone and I thought about retiring and just sitting down to cry for the rest of the day. Or eat. Or go shopping.
    I decided for shopping at the south outlets.

    In a long process sending pictures to my wife, who is staying at home to earn some money to cover my slot losses, doing live video chats with her and looking like a complete idiot showing her bags via whatsapp I finally managed to buy the one Kipling bag she wants. She already has several, this one is a gift for her sisters birthday.

    I bought my usual giant stack of polo shirts and trousers and thought „wow this is all so cheap compared to gambling slots“

    That reminded me I am on a mission to win back my lost money, and I got back to Cosmo to do that.
    Thanks to some professional slot coaching by @fraygul I found my way back to nearly break even for the day

    [​IMG]
    The buffalo game in the lower right paid 108 times 6 dollar on a 80 cent bet on Wonder4 Boost

    [​IMG]
    And I for the first time played Money Galaxy which is one of my favorites in MyKonami

    Dinner was again at Earl of sandwich, I just had to compare my obligatory Hawaiian BBQ to the Philly cheesesteak from yesterday
    [​IMG]
    This one won.

    Today I will go back to Luxor, where I checked into this pretty pyramid room for the slot tournament that starts today
    [​IMG]
    Well, it would be OK to stay there, but I guess I will continue sleeping here at Cosmo
