    Hey everyone. So this report intends to be brief; ill post pics and notes each day but in a summarised format.

    Day 1 -12th June
    Arrived at McCarren roughly on time it with long security lines I missed the high limit slot pull at Cosmo!! I'm flying in from Ireland so after a long flight I usually crash 10pm Vegas time. This time was no exception!

    I'm a low roller (50c-2 bucks a spin slots, up to 25 a hand BJ).

    Slots played day 1 @ Caesars and Linq: Britney, 88 Fortunes, Lightning Link, Pharoah's Fortune, Miss Kitty, Fu Dao Le, Dragon Spins, Elton and Buffalo Grand.


    These are the only wins so far, I'm happy since I am playing to my daily budget

    My fav slot so far has to be Dragon Spins! It keeps you playing and bonuses are quite frequent.

    Chilling by the pool now after being up since 4am playing some more of the above slots, holding even so far.

    More to come!!

    Good luck simpatt! Where in Ireland are you from? I've spent several weeks there over a couple summers and visited many cities.

    I haven't gotten into that Dragon spins yet, but I have a friend who really enjoyed it in Vegas one weekend! By the end he said he was "officially a card carrying member of GA and putting it on his speed dial" after playing that game- LOL! (In jest of course)

    Have fun & good luck!

    Day 2 summary:

    Lost lost lost! I wasn't able to hit a thing. I tried a load of slots in a half dozen casinos and nada.

    Really enjoyed Cabinet of Curiosities, Buffalo Grand and more Dragon Spins but no wins.

    Decided to focus on blackjack since the odds are technically better. Well it got worse....!

    I'm budgeting around 250 a day for 10 nts, I often end up nibbling into the next day's fund, well I'm on day 3 and into day 6's fund so time for a break I think.

    Bought in 3 times for 200-250 at Caesars betting 15-25 a hand last night/this morning and lost the lot. Just finished losing 100 at swim up BJ at the pool as well.

    Do you guys ever get so deep into a bad run that you start losing interest all together, or feeling like a win is impossible? Well I am there.

    Not letting it get to me though I am having fun losing and I'm in Vegas of course!!

    Also I watched the implosion of the Riv this morning from Encore parking garage; really cool to see it and you could see some couples watching it with nostalgia. Some good memories there.

    Well here's hoping to a recovery and some pics for you guys of wins!

    Hope things turn around for you!

    Love Dublin - lived in the trinity college dorms for a few weeks 10 summers ago and had a blast being in the middle of everything :)

    Hang in there! Maybe try some craps or video poker if you know how to play those games.

    If you're planning any outdoor activities, I suggest you get those in before next week. They are predicting soaring temps starting Sunday (110+). Red Rock Canyon is worth a drive/look, but go early and take a six pack of water. There is a casino, Red Rock, close by that is nice with low minimums and "good" rules.

    Oh, and order a water with every cocktail. If you need anymore suggestions, let me know LOL:rolleyes:

    Luck to you!

    "Do you guys ever get so deep into a bad run that you start losing interest all together, or feeling like a win is impossible? Well I am there"

    I think you need a distraction when that happens, could be walking and people watching, drinking and people watching, road trip and people watching (someone mentioned Red Rock - an excellent idea) and/or an Irish bar for.... you guessed it, people watching....

    Also a trip downtown to explore a great adventure (try the mod museum also)

    Hope luck turns

    The people will definitely become more interesting as more people arrive for EDC.

    And yes, I echo the sentiment of turning things around.

    Day 3 - woke up at 1am after falling asleep at 6pm!! Body clock still screwed. I played through a hundred on the slots and went over onto Margeritavillle for some $5 BJ, then to Flamingo for some $10 once MV closed. Still the gambling gods aren't with me but I still have 6 full days.....

    Today I am taking it easy by the pool and just had Aria buffet!! My fav in Vegas still.

    My hubby bought me Mariah tickets for my birthday so there's a show I will see this week :)

    Some observations: the casinos are still too cold!! Why can't they find a happy medium?!

    The strip is much quieter than I am used to, maybe it's because it's summer and because I am awake at stupid times!

    Less porn slappers each time I come here - love this!

    A heatwave is on its way.....115 expected by Tuesday!!

    Cold casino's.... I think downtown another plus for you, typically no where near as cold.

    115 degrees - godspeed there (I recall walking from Riv to Venetian when it was 114 - told the next day and it was painful)

    Have a feeling soon as you body clock gets in line with normal, positive cash flow will be yours.......
