    Thanks everyone for an amazing birthday. The cards are going the way of what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

    Thanks so much for a very entertaining TR! Hopefully, you and the Mrs will be able to return in the not so distant future when there is some semblance of normality.
    Safe travels home and a quick uneventful quarantine.

    In the air right now, just about to pass over Colorado. So about last night...

    I definitely went off the rails with some hard-core degen action. As mentioned, it was a roller-coaster where there was so many "what could have been" moments that didn't pan out. I also didn't seem to take many pictures along the way, but there were a few vids. To avoid getting another headache today I didn't drink too much last night either - just a single raspberry lemondrop which came out in a well glass, only about half full. Boo.

    At some point I ended up on the bank of Dragon Link games at the front (between Chandelier and the strip). And got a couple of bonuses:

    Thanks for the very satisfying trip report. You crammed a lot into your time there, and it was fun following along with the strip, food, room, and slot photos/videos/experiments and to read your wife's comments along the way. It may not have been the 40th birthday you'd anticipated, but I'd say it was a good one nevertheless!

    I was playing with a pretty big ticket and was definitely starting to swing for the fences.

    This is the moment that the trip changed though...



    I've seen much much smaller bets on BG yield higher results

    After the BG bonus I did a couple of backup spins and then moved over to the Luxury Line games again. Those bonuses start on their own so it's tricky to get the phone out quickly to start recording - particularly since Face ID doesn't work when wearing a mask.

    Express Bonus:

    After those I think I played something else but can't remember and didn't take a pic, but eventually ended up back on the bank of Lightning Link games just outside HL.



    That made the hulk get a little angry, and the HL room was right there.

    So I took what was left of that ticket into the HL room. I was going to play Cleo II but it was occupied, so then I figured I'd hit one of the old school games and landed on Wolf Run.

    In hindsight, that may not have been the best idea as I'm sure there were cheaper options available. But Wolf Run does have huge hit potential and was hoping for a grand slam at this point. I settled on the $1 version, playing all 40 lines X 1. Put in a Tito for about $500, ran that down to nothing, reloaded another $500 and ran that down to zero. Nothing bigger than a single $140 hit along the way - mostly dead spins (LOTs of BONUS BONUS BLANK spins too). It went super quick.

    On the way out from the HL room I played the nickel Texas Tea game - put in $100 and got a great bonus to run it up to $150.

    Took that over to.... Stack 'em High!

    Which didn't go well. Then figured I'd play my $199 in free play that I'd built up on the same game and converted that into $110. Cashed that out and called it a trip gamble-wise.

    When you have a chance, can you comment on how busy (or not busy) the casino was?

    What I have in my pocket right now is a little over $700 cash plus the $400+ taxes that I'll get back next year. Here's the final stats from Cosmo:

    upload_2020-10-16_13-40-58.png

    So those numbers are pretty average I'd say, but since it was so good for the first half it does reveal just how bad the last day+ of the trip was.

    Total non-gambling trip costs including flight, airport parting, hotel, food, etc will probably end up around $1000. I didn't talk to the host on the way out so I don't know what, if anything, is being comped off the back-end.

    In two years @Mrs2BOBCATS celebrates her 40th as well. The bar has been set :)

    Tuesday night was definitely very, very quiet but it got progressively busier each night, where last night (Thursday) Cosmo was pretty much as busy as normal for a Thursday in mid-October. My host talked about the weekend crowds being so large that it's impossible for them to enforce any of the safety regulations, and it's pretty much just a hope and a prayer that people act properly.

    The scooters aren't to be found at Cosmo anymore and that's intentional - they don't let anyone get them unless they can prove they medically need one.

    Thanks for the nice TR with so many videos that I enjoyed watching. Hope you will do better next when you go with MrsBOBCATS to celebrate her 40th birthday.
    Have a safe and pleasant trip home.
