    About me !

    In my mid 20s

    I’ve been to Vegas 10+ times in these past 2 years always losing the entire BR and sometimes even more!

    Most of my trips end up winning when I get there and losing it all on the LAST day.

    I’m on a really bad run.

    Impulsive and DEGENERATE gambler.(Trying to change)

    Accepted IF gambling is going to be a part of my life I have to learn self control and money management.

    Good luck!

    There aren't any bad choices for dining at Aria. Depending on when you get in, I'd highly recommend Bardot for brunch, though they only serve it Saturday/Sunday. Julian Serrano is great as well, and consider Herringbone for lunch on Monday (on weekends they do this brunch buffet setup that isn't really that good and is pretty overpriced). As far as the pool, it's a beautiful space, but because it's surrounded by buildings, it can sometimes be difficult to find a spot in the sun, nothing you can really do about that.

    First off, welcome to the forum!

    As for me, bringing my gf to Vegas helps me not tilt.

    Have her drag me around doing non- gambling things.

    Unfortunately, that isn't an option for you at this time.

    I would probably try an "envelope system" in your case to control how you spend your bankroll. And remember these are games you are supposed to lose at. So chasing losses when tilting is a slippery slope. I've definitely fell down that mountain a few times.

    I also may have lost my first 12 trips too to be honest, but i have a good winning streak going now, so hoping your luck can change too!

    This. I had my first non losing trip last year and am hoping to keep that streak alive. Just expect to lose your allotment each day and any leftover add to the next day's bankroll.

    Welcome and good luck!

    I don't follow any sort of system but will only bring what I'm willing to lose and leave my debit card at home so I'm not tempted to hit the ATM. Also, try to find some non gambling things to do and quit playing if you're not having fun.

    Looking forward to your trip report!

    Nice bankroll 20 something. Good luck to you. I'm bringing down my #2 son who is 27, in July but he doesn't carry that bankroll. Although, he's been playing online,,,and he just won a nice jp online, so he could be bringing that bankroll down with him.

    First off, welcome and good luck on your trip!

    I'll probably be in the minority [maybe of one] on this, but I've just stopped trying to avoid tilt at all. I'm not sure tilting is even a thing for casino games. I think the term "tilt" probably originated with poker and essentially means getting emotional to the point where it affects your ability to make good decisions. This makes total sense in poker, where you can't know what the "correct" decision is in any particular spot, so as you tilt your decisions get farther and farther away from optimal. But with blackjack or video poker (or baccarat in your case), you do know the exact correct decision in every spot, so as long as you are still playing the correct strategy, how can you be "on tilt"? Most people here probably use the term "tilt" to mean playing longer or betting more than they normally would, but if you've accepted that gambling is always going to be a part of your life, then it doesn't matter whether you place those bets today, tomorrow, next week, next month or next year (and you're just as likely to win as you were before you went "on tilt").... there are no decisions (good or bad) being made, it's just one lifelong gambling session. Whether you buy these mental gymnastics or not, they've really helped me not beat myself up so much after giving back big wins or losing my whole bankroll on the last day of a trip.

    TL;DR: I avoid tilt with semantics...

    One thing I’ve done to not go on tilt is forget pass losses.

    If you play strictly baccarat you should have some winning trips, that use to be my game before I started on slots (big mistake)!

    Best advice is this with that healthy roll. Decide on how many session you want per day and each session should have either a time limit a shoe limit a win limit or a loss limit. Once you hit any of these limits you simply walk away until you next session.

    Sounds stupid but it will help make you a winner and less chance of tilt.

    Hope you find a game plan that works and good luck!!

    Well said, sir! And yes I did actually read! But I also think your TL;DR is very poignant!

    I can't tell you how not to go on tilt but I could suggest get a cheque for larger win.

    With that being said, you can still cash the cheque at the cashier if you want.

    OK I'm not being much help here, good luck and win big lol
