    Day one
    Flew out of the Bellingham WA and arrived Vegas around 4pm. Checked into NY NY, it is my first time staying here. The check in experience was smooth and quick, the lady who helped me was nice and told me to grab some refreshments at the Vip lounge next to it before I head up to the room.


    Got the spa suite. Room is decent in size, bathroom is a bit small I wish they had His & Her faucets since I'm traveling with my gf. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    After we settled everything in the room, we decided to grab a quick bite. We had our mind on Yusho ramen house at Monte Carlo but found out they were closed so we walked back to NY NY and just order a burger, fries and milkshake at Shake Shack. The milkshake was so thick lol, it was too sweet for us.

    After the quick dinner, I want to get into the actions and gamble but my bday is next day so the gf insist on buying me a gift at city center. She probably use my bday as an excuse to shop , lol....

    We went to every stores, she tried on every handbags. And finally it's my turn, wanted a long wallets but unfortunately they didn't have the one I like and it will take few days to bring it in store.

    We got back to hotel just before midnight, yes, we spent almost 3 hours in city center. She is a marathon shopper :) (Her record was 9 hrs at Seattle premium outlets, I'm not sure how she even does it.)

    Prior the dinner, I hit up the Mlife desk to activate my FP and also added the bonus bday FP on top. I was ready to gamble when we got back, I said let's go to the high limit to convert the FP.

    Sat down on pinball, got a really good bonus. Played a bit of WOF and top dollar, Elvis and some monopoly stuff but nth really worth taking picture.

    We head up to the room and call it a night.

    Convinced the gf to rest early because it will be a long day tomorrow. Told her I will be right back just to head down for a smoke.

    She knew what was up, don't go crazy she said.

    Freedom here I come, I rush down to HL and proceed to lose about $1400 on cleo II and roughly $1000 on double top dollars.

    Price is right is on my to do list, I did pretty well at Cosmo few months back. Took a stroll in the casino and found 2 machines, both had no sounds, played 1 spin each and that was the end of it.

    Saw the tall fortune, decided to give Buffalo Gold a go.

    There were 3 machines, I got bonus and good hits here and there. Cycle through God knows how much and couldn't land myself a super free games.

    I remembered well, i was down to $160 dollar in my wallets before I hit this beauty. Got my HP.

    Donkey off a few hundreds playing random Ellen machines afterward and done for the night. Money I brought down to the floor was 3k. Still down [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Day two

    We totally passed out, woke up at 4pm, saw a envelope from the marketing for a invitation to the Golden knight pre season game. I like hockey but too bad had dinner plan for the night so couldn't attend. [​IMG]

    Hey babe, I'm just gonna go down and get us some coffee while you get ready.

    I got the approval, I need to hit them quick and hit them hard so I up the denomination. [​IMG]

    Finally, a bonus..... Not a very good one but it's better than losing.


    Got a dinner plan at Tender at luxor, we mostly played the theme games on the way to it. ELLEN, WALKING DEAD, MONOPOLY... Etc. The gf isn't a gambler so my games are limited when she's around.

    Upon research, mlife at luxor is the only property that give a little bonus when you show up on your actual birthday. The supervisor spun a wheel of top prize of $100 fp, I got the second price of $50. Gave some play at Luxor, went tilt a bit on Michael Jackson and lost $400 on it. No bonus at all haha


    Steak is good for its price, not super fancy and taste good. The fish we had was just so so.

    After the dinner, we made our way to Mandalay bay for Michael Jackson One. MJ is always the king of pop. Was quite touched when seeing the hologram, amazing show

    What's a must play at Mandalay Bay? Form reviews shown the answer is 3 reels wizard of Oz in HL. Gave it a try, dump a nice chuck of money with lots of teaser.

    Walked back to NY NY, we decided not to go through the casino to enjoy the night time weather. The walk is very nice, the temperature is just perfect.

    Late night solo at the NYNY.... Serious business.. Lost a lot of money and the best hit was this. 4 dollars below the 30% tax withhold. Felt great [​IMG]

    Pretty much spent the rest of my night and bankroll in HL.

    Day Three.

    Flamingo garden to look at the Flamingo and huge ass koi. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Then kill some time at the forum shop across the street. To my surprise, the gf didn't spend too much time here, she likes city center more than the forum.

    Then we Uber to Mandalay bay again and redeemed my platinum experience letter for 2 tickets to the shark reef. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    After shark reef, went to morimoto at mgm for dinner. We were soooo hungry, ordered a lot for just two of us. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Tonight is the last night in Vegas for us.

    I decided to play hard and it got out of control. Cycled $3k into tall fortune, tonight, I got a lot of super free games but the result were disappointing.

    Tool a break from slot and played at the $25 double deck bj, decent rules because I thought bj 3 to 2 no longer exist in MGM chain. Surprise to see one $25 table still offers it at NYNY.

    Did very well at BJ, bought in for $300 and 3 quick shoes I had $1200 in my hand.

    Cash out and back to HL slots, I had lots of drinks already and was a bit buzz.

    Lost about 10k, mainly on $25 pinball. Think I blew my last $4k on $100 denom at $300 per spin ...... No bonus and no hit. Ended quickly.

    Nice, I picture you running into the HL slots yelling 'I ONLY GOT 5 MINUTES WHERE'S THE $25 MACHINES?" ;)

    Sorry the slots were so brutal, but sounds like you both had a good time.

    My gf has done the birthday spin at Luxor twice, she also got $50 the first time! Not too many spots to hit that. ;)

    Sorry the birthday trip wasn't a winning one, but you will get them next time! Looks like it was a fun trip with lots of diversions from the gaming, and great to hear you enjoyed the MJ show. Loved the hit just under W2G, that is indeed a win! Happy belated, thanks for sharing!
