    After 33 years of trips to Vegas I finally had a winning trip at Cosmo last week. I hit three handpays, one on lightning link, a big one on Timberwolf Grand, and the biggest one on 5 Dragons Grand. I won every day with a lot of nice hits on various machines to keep me going. The new Buffalo Diamond machine payed me nicely every time I played it. I started out with a lot of free play and got more throughout the trip with the slot kiosk game Cosmo offered...so much fun to win.

    As usual stayed in a fountain view wraparound but this time in the west tower. We saw Dionne Warwick in concert Thursday night and really enjoyed the show which brought back a lot of memories. I remember seeing her in Chicago at the Arie Crown theater in the mid sixties and couldn’t believe she is still performing.

    Final tally for the trip was a dream come true. The host picked up all my charges on the back end. A three hundred dollar food credit at Cosmo doesn’t go very far. The trip was totally free and I came home with a few thousand extra cash. Still can’t believe it and although it may never happen again at least I did it once.

    It definitely shouldn't have taken so many years to have a winning trip, but happy for you that it finally did!!!

    You must've found the lucksac... did you, by chance, happen to hide it away at Cosmo somewhere I can find it in 2 weeks?!?

    Sorry to everyone that I don’t have pictures. I don’t carry my cellphone when gambling...drives my wife crazy. I seldom use a cellphone and only take it with me when driving.

    Here’s a detail I left out. We had a late checkout on Friday so went to have a leisurely lunch at Milos. Rushed back to the room to pickup our luggage to catch the limo and the key wouldn’t work. It took security a half hour to come up to the room to open the door. Fortunately transportation was understanding and said they would pick us up whenever. Thinking we were going to miss our flight our driver hightailed it to the airport and we arrived at our gate as the plane was boarding. This is the second time I’ve been locked out of my room with a late checkout.

    The concert was the only time I left Cosmo during the stay. It was at Bally’s. We decided to walk back to Cosmo after the concert and the strip was jam packed with people...never saw it so crowded.

    I’ve had some good gambling trips and came back almost even a few times but have had many more trips when I lose it all. Hope you have good luck and a good time in two weeks!

    Nicely done!! Hope this is the start of something! When I win early in a trip - winnings never come back:(

    I completely understand not leaving Cosmo - done it several times:)

    Well that's obviously awesome, but I'm shocked that after so many years that's your first winning trip!?

    I’m shocked that after so many losing trips I had a winning one. Maybe I will start a new streak of winning lol.

    I also had an issue with late check out and my room key not working on my last trip.

    I was in the high limit waiting on a handpay, knowing I was pushing my luck with time. Limo guy calls me, I say I'm on my way, just need to grab my bag from the room. Go up to room and key doesn't work, had to go down to VIP room and get a new key, limo driver is really worried because he says there is a ton of traffic, running like a banshee, get to the limo and the roads are all closed because of the Vegas marathon or some running thing, barely made it to the airport in time, but the driver sure did the best he could to make sure I made it.

    I am going again in two weeks and plan to ask at check in to make sure my room key will work for late check out.

    Well, just returned from the Cosmo and made sure to mention the room key issue. Assured by VIP check in that it would work for late check out, and lo and behold go to grab my bag and the key doesn't work again
