    Also, playing like this and on our budget, won’t get big comps. But it is enough to receive 3 comped nights at most properties (not Wynn), along with $100 resort credit and $75 free play (MGM properties). That’s enough for us. Sometimes we are offered free tix to concerts, but not often. We don’t have a host anywhere because we play all over the place.

    We play on the same players card. We are Platinum at MLife, Gold at V/P Grazie and lowered at Caesars properties.

    No need to back down from a winning strategy!

    Hoping Ron’s luck is with you both in August. $22 direct?!? That’s unheard of!
    Thanks for taking us along and all the details.

    Well done!
    That's also what I have been doing these years with similar results.
    I know if I concentrate at one place, I could get better comps ( I also doubt it), but I don't want to.
    I like wandering arround.

    Frontier has been offering $11 flights lately. We booked his flights and flights for both of us in October. All $22 round trip, nonstop!

    Thanks! He’s definitely luckier at slots than I am, but I still have fun and usually play close to even.

    Now that we’re both at home, I asked Ron if he had any final observations for the TR.

    Simply put, he recommends that you don’t go if you’re expecting even close to a normal Vegas experience. So much is closed, both stores and restaurants, and what is open has limited hours. Masks at pools, no shows, no bars, hardly any people walking on the sidewalks. His COVID precautions made him feel comfortable enough, but not necessarily safe from other dangers.

    That said, he had a good trip and is glad he went, especially since it was profitable. We’ll go in August and I expect we’ll have a good time. If you are a slot player or VP player and that’s you’re primary activity, you’ll have fun. And it sounds like it’s busier on the weekends.

    Thanks to everyone who read our posts or followed his trip! I hope it helped people who are on the fence about their own trips or at least provided some entertainment!

    Your post about almost missing your flight because of no available transportation is what made the limo decision easy! Thanks for sharing that info!

    Wow, it costs you less money to fly to Vegas than for us to drive to Vegas from California.
    Thanks for a very nice TR, Glad Ron had a profitable trip as always. Looking forward for your August TR.

    Seems like Ron's trip flew right by! Congrats on another winning Vegas jaunt (boo on the tourney, but he did just fine anyway) and it looks like Ron did good on keeping safe and healthy! Will the two of you do a repeat of Ron's limo/sedan transport on your August trip? I did it for the first time on my last visit over July 4th... it's not cheap but it was worth it for the peace of mind alone (not worrying about missing a flight or being in a questionable ride share).

    Thanks for the report. I am still on the fence about a return visit with all the closures. But there is a part of me that wonders if things will improve by waiting later. If we have to deal with the flu and covid in the fall and winter, I'm not sure what Vegas would be like. Maybe we should just go, be safe as possible and just enjoy what's available.

    Yes, chances are we will book another limo. Presidential has some decent round trip deals if you use a debit card to pay; as low as $80 for sedan service. Higher than other options, but you receive quick, personal service and peace of mind.

    It really depends on what you want to do to entertain yourself while you’re there. And how bothered will you be by inconveniences. Gambling is fine. Being in the pool is fine. Shopping and eating have limited options. If you enjoy the outdoors, maybe a trip to red rock would be a good activity.

    Your theory of just go, be as safe as possible and enjoy what’s available will work if you are flexible and have a positive attitude. Good luck!
