    I cannot thank enough all the folks who are reading this and participating in it, even if it's just throwing out the likes. Yes, it's a bit of work to keep any trip report live, and yes the videos add a layer of complexity, but it's a win-win since it slows me down and helps fill some time that really only is filled by more gambling otherwise. Had this trip been anything like originally planned I think the trip report would look different, but we are where we are right now and I wouldn't be enjoying myself this week as much as I am if nobody was paying attention. So, thank you all for everything so far.

    I'm calling it for today since I stayed up way too long last night and was up way too early this morning - I'm exhausted and I still have another full day tomorrow plus Friday morning!

    Tomorrow literally has nothing planned. I could end up at the pool for a bit, walking the strip, slotting around, etc. I'll make a trip to Ghiradelli's for @Mrs2BOBCATS at some point. But I'll be winging it which is a bit odd for me.

    Day Two totals...

    I'm actually not sure how much bankroll was in play today. I think $2000 is what I started with and $1200 is what I ended with. It wasn't good this morning / afternoon but tonight certainly went much better.

    Updated Cosmo stats:

    Much less coin-in today but I was definitely trying to slow things down a bit so that's expected.

    Just caught up, Happy belated Birthday! Good luck and enjoy your time in Vegas! I had planned to go to Vegas too for my birthday which was one day before yours, unfortunately I have to stay home because the roofer wasn't able finish replacing our new roof in time. Glad that you are able to go as planned. Lets us see some big wins and hand pays, thanks for sharing the videos, I really enjoyed watching them.

    By the sound of things as you were going along yesterday I expected to see significantly worse results. You’re well ahead of where you could be on Theoretical loss. I would be pretty happy to be even after two full days. Hang in there! We appreciate the videos!!

    Sorry things aren't going well gaming wise so far @Mr2BOBCATS.

    If you feel like doing requests, Shove a $100 in, sit down at a Superstar Poker machine at Chandlier and Select Super Times Pay poker and play dime 3 play Bonus Poker Deluxe at max bet. Play long enough to get 1 drink ticket. Lol Don't video unless you really feel like it. But if you hit a big win, take a picture. If a ticket doesn't spit out soon after 21 points ($126 coin-in) and beyond 20 minutes, say something. Lol

    I almost pissed myself for this drink ticket, was at 19 points, but I got wanker quads!

    Dunno how to play Bonus Deluxe? Follow this. It's close enough. The only changes I would make for this game vs. the link below. King is usually better than KT suited and an inside straight is better than nothing. And a inside straight with 2 or more high cards is better than 2 off-suit high cards.

    Great trip report. Been fun to follow along. Lightning link/ dragon link at the 5 cent denom $1.25 a spin has saved my gambling trips a handful of times. Good luck and enjoy Vegas.

    So much fun to follow along - thanks for doing this for us - had my fingers crossed with Mustang 2. Oh well - there is always next time. Very sweet video for the @Mrs2BOBCATS.

    Have a great day today. Can’t wait to see what happens next. There’s a multigame Kitty Glitter machine back in the area by the barber shop. $4.50 max bet. I usually trigger the bonus with $100. The bonus can pay well as it include all four games. Good luck today!

    (Of course my Huff and Puff suggestion sucked so......)

    I though jagoff was only a Pittsburgh thing!

    There are a couple, I think they double diamonds tho. One is in a multi game cabinet in the section outside the HL room towards the strip, it's also multi-denominational. It's the game closest to the aisle in a bank with a couple of cleo games. There's another one in the area closest to LV Blvd, but I don't remember exactly where it is.

    My second choice would be to put a couple hundred in Cleo II. A nice bonus at the nickel denom can really turn things around. Yes...you could also lose your $200 in 10 minutes and get a $0 bonus, but that’s why they call it gambling!

    Well, he might have visited Pittsburgh in school...

    My former co-worker in Atlanta described to me the "Pittsburgh left" once. They immediately turned when the turn traffic was supposed to yield. WTF?!?!

    Fitbit doesn’t agree that I slept well.

    Sleeping alone must be a factor.
