    I got an offer for 2 comped nights so I figured I'd take advantage and use it as practice run for the TriFecta in Vegas on Dec 6th.

    I had Delta SkyMiles so Boston here I come. I was there earlier this year for a day trip and am now looking forward to a 2 day trip. Arriving Sunday at around 11:30am (depending on typically bad Boston traffic) and will be leaving Tuesday at noon.

    Here's to hoping for plenty of Buffalos. :) :)

    Ya - the good news is that my rating is with Mlife so if my luck blows there I can simply not play and not worry about my theo :)

    No thanks - I'm not renting a car and will only be there for basically a day and half. The last thing I want is to get into MA traffic on a Sunday or a Monday. One of the main reasons that I moved out of New England was the traffic - and the long crappy winter - and the ridiculously high property taxes.

    Life is great in NC

    Eh, I like it in Mass. No traffic on my side of teh state. My retirement plan will be West Coast of FL for the harshest of the winter, but back here for summers and shoulder seasons. I've been up and down the Carolina's, not enough there to keep me occupied.

    Here's to hoping that I have a ton of good luck on Boost, Spinning Fortunes, Buffalo Diamond and Buffalo Revolution. I hope that they have Revolution by now - they didn't have it in October when I was there.

    Heading to RDU in 20 minutes to catch direct flight to Boston - I expect to be hitting the floor by 11:45 - room likely won't be ready so I'll have to leave my bags with the concierge - this takes valuable slotting time from me.

    I'm feeling Boston strong and lucky :) :) :)

    Good luck, you may be surprised - place has been slow since opening, room might be ready for you. They've been giving me free room offers and I have barely played there. The one time I stayed there the room was beautiful.

    I do like their slot floor, it's big and spacious with high ceilings and usually not very busy (unfortunately for them). Local complaints (aside from just traffic getting there) have been about drink service being non-existent, but that doesn't bother me....I rarely drink while I'm playing.

    Solid 7 hours of slotting today. Observations

    1. Room was ready at 2:30 - would have been longer but I went up and checked if they could give it to me. They were busy last night - tons of people were checking today.
    2. Place was packed with locals - lots of low rollers
    3. Tables packed - really packed - no surprise - lots of Asians here in New England and they do love tables :)
    4. I didn't win but didn't lose a ton in today's session - just couldn't get any home run bonuses.
    5. I ran into a couple that I met while playing Spinning Fortunes - they were over at Wonder Wheel and had just been paid $16,000 for a bonus on Buffalo Gold betting only 4.80 on free play. Freaking amazing. Super Free games with over 30 spin with all 15.
    6. They don't have Buffalo Revolution - they do have around 40 new machines being installed - black curtains around the area - but you can see them from the mezzanine level. Hope they're installed tonight.
    7. Dunkins is open 24x7

    Afternoon update -4pm

    1. I've been playing steadily since 6:30AM - had the place to myself for the first 2-3 hours - just like at the Aria
    2. I've been on quite a run - seems like nearly everything I play ends up with a win
    3. I introduced myself to a host and now have one here - paid dividends already. She got me into the lunch buffet without waiting - the darned line had to have been 300 people long. They introduced BOGO for Mondays to attract the locals to play. Smart move on their pair
    4. The host has arranged transportation to the airport. No more stinkin' Uber - Logan has the Uber situation all messed up
    5. They are having a Monday promo - and will randomly give away up to $28,000 in cash today - you have to have your redcard in
    6. There a really fun new Aristocrat (new for me) here - a 7 reel game - with fireballs as well and spin bonus. I definitely had a blast on it - took it for around $300 in one quick 30 minute bonus frenzy. Was hoping for the darned Major
    I'll have some pictures to post upon my return.

    I'm at the airport waiting to board direct flight to RDU. I went down this morning to get a cup of coffee and play only 1 or 2 hundred more. Sure glad that I did because $55 into Buffalo Diamond I got a bonus and landed on the 77 spins at X4.. Amazing - pictures to come later - but I got my first handpay. I'm no longer a handpay virgin.

    That sounds familiar! I got a massive 4x free spins at Wynn on Buffalo Diamond back in October, which yielded my first (US) handpay. Congrats!

    So I guess we would both suggest that anyone who hasn't had a handpay yet find a Buffalo Diamond machine with a high number of 4x spins and hammer it until it hits :)

    Yes - I was actually trying another one an hour later - before my limo pickup. It was also over 70 spins. Sadly, it didn't hit before I had to leave. I just got home - likely won't do the TR until later in the week. I mean I honestly would be camped at quad of them at Aria if they ever get them. Why wouldn't you? I noticed one dude playing for hours betting .75 - on the same $100
