    We lost more in the casino...SURPRISE! And then walked to Mandalay Bay to the Shark Reef. Boy glad this was free because I wouldn't pay to do it...although it was neat I expected more. Pica are on hubbys phone because mine was full of videos of brutal bonuses. I think I had 7 or 8 tops in total between Cosmo and Aria.

    Headed next morning to the Palazzo....I had a very large bank roll this trip and was down to $350...thought for the first time ever I was going to either low roll at Palazzo or hit up the ATM to take $ out of my U.S account. Grabbed my Freeplay and headed straight to H/L room to play Davinci Diamonds...here is what happened 051.jpg


    Third spin in won $1130! Well I'll be damned I was back in business. Cashed out and headed to Mustang Money at $10/ spin $1 denom and was on fire..soon enough my TITO was at $2836 so I was ready for the drinks to start flowing.

    Met up with BFF and headed over to Cosmo...I am superstitious about cashing out a Lucky TITO when I'm on a lucky streak so planned to hit the ATM there to get money for H/L group pull...ATM's were out of order so I didn't take part but did enjoy meeting everyone although it was short and sweet. Watched a couple of the guys play Craps and I was not bringing them any luck nor was BFF so we had a drink in the H/L room with VegasMonkey then headed back to Palazzo. I had a great run on the slots there and had pizza at Grimaldis...much better than Secret Pizza IMO.

    Got up early next morning went to Bouchons' for breakfast with BFF and my hubby..it was great as always. Continued playing slots and put back some of my winnings but I had so many bonuses and a tonne of play so wasn't a concern. I have alot of videos which I will post to youtube tomorrow. The Buffalo pic below was my hubby's win 056.jpg

    A couple of mine...mostly I recorded my bonuses so not many pics. This is a game I have never played and was low rolling on to pass some time while waiting for hubby. Definitely handpay potential at max bet 059.jpg

    Last night I got my cruise certificate and was 1350 points short for the mini suite but I was hungry and wanted to get it sorted so I could go eat dinner at Lavo so settled for Ocean view balcony. Lavo was really good and the portions were huge so I was happy and full. I decided to go for Handpay or broke and hopped around the H/L room and pennies. No handpay but I got alot of play in so I'm approx 35k away from Platinum so I will make that next trip easy. Cashed out with $441 left on my TITO so in my books anytime I take anything home I consider myself a winner.(I would have kept playing but I was super tired and a week in Vegas caught up to me) My host comped a bit over $500 off my bill and I had $438 in express comps so only had to pay $108 including tips Cosmo also comped everything off my bill...but not Aria...first time ever they barely comped anything(I have never had a balance to pay when I leave) . Palazzo is going to be my new main casino to stay and play and Cosmo my back up for when I do longer trips...I get bored if I'm at the same place more than 3 or 4 days. I am very happy to be leaving Mlife ...their slot % payback were a joke and PGP is very apparent on the back end comps...I may book one last offer just to go to Carbone and use Freeplay up, low roll for $100 and give them the one finger wave as I checkout;) As always a fantastic trip and I really enjoyed meeting everybody. I didn't win or get a handpay but I had fun and that's all that matters!

    Excellent flight home. I'm sure this won't be our last meet up in Vegas!

    Congrats on getting the upgrade on the cruise!! Sounds like Mlife is getting really tough with gamblers- very disappointing for those that have been giving their play there! Yikes! Great to hear the CUT review- for a while it seemed they were becoming inconsistent. I live the vibe there, and really enjoyed it when they were on their game!

    Fantastic re-cap for the last few days, glad you and hubby enjoyed!

    Thanks for the great recap. So glad your luck changed at the end. I'm so sorry to hear about your disappointment with Aria. I'm staying there next week for the first time. I sure hope the slots are in a better mood! I'm slowly moving away from MLife too. There are just so many options in Vegas it's hard to remain loyal to one program.

    You can try and win my money on Goldfish Deluxe and the pennies. The only luck I had was on 25 cent denom and that wasn't much luck. I'm curious to know what % payback you get on your play....I calculated mine on the second last day and under 70% is crazy terrible. If you are going to the pool go early and put a towel on a chair...we didn't and couldn't get a chair either day. Wishing you good luck and big wins!!!

    Crystal so sorry we didn't get to meet this trip. Seems like we had a similar gambling trip luck wise, I'm hoping I'll get near a handpay on my last few days here.

    Thanks for posting and taking the time to share!
