    Just got back from my most recent trip to Vegas with the gf. We stayed at MSS and the majority of our play was VP at the Boar's Head Bar with some slots mixed in at MSS and The Cal. Overall it was quite a profitable trip with a handful of premium hands/jackpots, not to mention some delicious crab legs and baby back ribs. Nothing beats coming home with more money than you arrived with, especially after expenses!

    Full detailed writeup broken down by day with all the pics can be seen at the following link:

    Enjoy! :)

    Great trip!! Sounds like staying at MSS was a good choice, especially
    playing at Boar's Head. Lots of nice hits. Enjoyed the pictures
    and reading about your adventure. Thanks for sharing!

    @Niteshade MSS has been our home base for the past few years. We used to make an occasional trip to the strip but really can't justify going anymore, especially after they started charging for parking. It'll probably take a good show or friends/family to pry us away from downtown because we aren't going willingly :)

    I really enjoy staying and playing at MSS also... and so far it has been my luckiest casino for VP wins

    Congrats on the Royal and all of the other great wins, and thanks for the report!

    It's exciting to know they're out there and someone got it...just wish it was me because I was waiting for the slot attendant to give me 2 scratchers :(

    Thanks! I'm so long overdue I should have had at least a couple last year and got nothing at all in 2017...couldn't believe it when it hit especially since it was right after the other $1k win on the dealt quad 3's w/ kicker.

    It's the most coin-in we've had at MSS so far to date...more in 2 days of gambling than we did the entire 4-day Thanksgiving weekend trip. 5-play poker definitely helps boost those numbers.

    Yeah, how often does it happen? Not very often from what I read. Maybe annually at best. Too bad he got the wrong attendant at that moment.

    Nice report!

    I saw quad 2's redrawn in there. Still waiting to do that one with a premium quad myself. But I have learned two things from this report. MSS handpays at $1000, and 6/5 multiline Bonus at the bars. Ugh. You can get that latter crap on the strip. If L likes slots so much, why isn't she on the DDB train? Haha

    It's funny, when you get the scratchers, they wait for you to scratch it like the $5,000 is just waiting to be hit. Last trip I got about $120 in cards with only one $3 scratcher. I don't even get $5 scratchers anymore.

    If you continue that level of play, you should talk to a host about getting a Silver Card. Let's you eat and drink at downtown Boyd properties (non-gourmet) without using any points or getting a comp from a host. It was $12k coin in per day average for three trips in a row. What's also nice is you can walk up to any bar and just order a drink and show them the card (in case cocktail service is lacking).

    I definitely agree...I think we had only two $3 scratchers all trip...and I've only hit two $5 scratchers in my lifetime there. Some slot attendants are more anal than others though...from breathing down your neck waiting for you to completely scratch it vs handing it to you and walking away without you even pretending to start scratching it.

    I love the idea of the silver card and appreciate your input on this as maximizing our food comps is something we're currently trying to fine-tune. My only concern is we now like to hit the Redwood once a trip and plan on keeping that as a must-do part of our future stays. If the silver card won't cover the Redwood because it's "gourmet" I don't know if we're better off just doing what we're doing now and charging that bill to the room along with maybe one $50 dinner at 777 then using points for any remaining food charges. I figure as long as our food charges to the room are a total of $150-200 for a 2 or 3 night stay they won't bat an eye at taking it off at the end of the trip if we put a minimum of $10k coin-in per day.

    Thanks so much for the kind words I'm glad you enjoyed it. That royal was soooooo long overdue...still need a couple more to get to where I should be given the number of hands I've played but I'm moving in the right direction :)

    Wow...I actually didn't even catch the paytable downgrade on multi-line Bonus Poker. I have L play Bonus because the strategy is so similar to JOB and there's a lot less volatility than DDB. I'll let her know that if she does multi-line she's gotta switch to DDB from now on.
