    Day 5:

    Today we checked out of Caesars, checked into Bellagio & headed out to Mt Charleston with a good friend of mine, Norm. Its beautiful up there with 20 degree less heat that Vegas!! Great in the summer & plenty of wild horses to be found.

    We are now ending the day at the pool, looking forward to seeing Mariah later and using my $75 free play to win some cash back for the rest of my trip!!

    End of day 5:

    Decided to use my freeplay before dinner & Mariah. Lost the whole $75 in Dragon Spins playing max bet $4, I gathered I'd try to win big with their money. I put in another $40 too but no luck still.

    Walked over Jasmine for dinner, it was delicious! Great presentation and surroundings and food was delicious as well. We saw 2 fountain shows as well!

    Mariah was okay, her voice is good still although not what it used to be. Worth it but my least favourite of all the Colloseum shows I have seen.

    Back to Bellagio where I sat down at a $15 table, proceeded to lose $150 in 15 mins. For those of you that are wondering I play perfect basic strategy but even with this you can get destroyed like I am this trip....

    After that I reverted to slots, 88 Fortunes and lost another $150. Not one bonus! Time for bed....!

    End of an era with the Riv. Even though I was creeped out by the place (and it's buffet) in Dec. 2011 when I first stepped in it, still a little sad to see it go. It was a lot livelier when we stepped in it for the last time in April 2015 as everyone said "goodbye". Hope the rest of the weekend goes well!

    Day 6 summary: spent the day by the pool then played some slots. Managed to make my play last a few hours before calling it a night around midnight.

    Day 7: we checked out of Bellagio around 9, great to see I had a comped room and no resort fees either! When you consider the $100 resort credit and $75 slot play I feel like I got a superb deal for a low roller like me.

    Bellagio has IMO really great service and I've always been delighted by each and every interaction with their staff.

    Checked into Cosmo around 10. This is my first stay thanks to Kevin transferring us from another offer. We are here for 3nts before we fly home.

    Checkin was easy and delivered with great service! Sarah gave us an awesome room (pics to come!) up on the 43rd floor with a superb fountain view :)

    This could be my new Vegas home?!

    Day 7: after spending the day at the pool I tried my luck on sown slots. I used my $50 freeplay on a Lobstermania 3 slot and made $20, proceeded to lose it after with 1 bonus. This is the version where you choose between the standard Lucky Larry's bonus or free spins.

    Next up was some Walking Dead 2. Despite not winning I enjoyed this one, I think it'll be on my to do list tomorrow! I had a free spin bonus but not big picture worthy.

    I ended the night on a Pharaoh's Fortune 1c slot playing 40c-$1 a spin, but without a bonus.

    I had some friends get us guest list at Hakkasan @ MGM, that was a fun club but so busy even with it being EDC weekend!

    I'll post some pics up now of the view from the room

    Can't beat those views from the Cosmo balcony's!

    I didn't know that Encore had Goldfish Deluxe, good to know since someone said they couldn't find it at Aria this past week. Not sure if they just missed seeing it or if it's already been removed.

    Looking forward to hear who you did on The Walking Dead 2!

    Day 8: woke up and head to get breakfast. Eggslut line is again way to long so I head right to the pool. Today was 115F and the pool was a little quieter due to the EDC crowd leaving town. After a full day we head down to the casino to play some Titanic slots, Buffalo and more Walking Dead 2. A lady next to me playing WD2 (this is a theme on this trip!) put $20 and playing $2.25 a spin hit the jackpot bonus. She got the major award x3 which ended up with her getting $930 plus of course the free spins. She ended up with nearly $1k. Needless to say she cashed out and walked away a winner. I think I was more delighted than she was, she didn't seem pleased with her win; maybe she wanted a handpay?!
    I played between 75c and $3 bets but no worthy wins this time, just a couple of bonuses which were fun.
    I spent the next hour playing various slots and then we headed to the Bellagio buffet for dinner. The buffet was good as always, we used MyVegas BOGOF offer which made it extra tasty ;)
    We headed back to Cosmo where I played some WD2, Pharoah's Fortune and Davinci's before bed. Tomorrow is our last day can we hit something to take home?!

    Day 9: This morning we finally had Eggslut!!! Delicious and worth the wait :) I had egg bacon & cheese bun which melted in my mouth! We headed to the Boulevard pool; again a lot quieter as the EDC crowd finally slip away to their home cities. Next I played some Pharaoh's Fortune which didn't behave! This evening we will eat at Wicked Spoon for the first time, then head to see some fountain shows and play for our final push on the slots!!
