Just home from 10 days in Vegas. Won't bore ya with all the details. Just a quick summary and few observations while they are still fresh in my mind.
10 days, 9 nights. expenses $600 ($298 rt airfare including all taxes and fees, 2 weekend nights @ casino rate $49, 7 nights comped. most meal comped, a couple nights out at clubs ect)
played 94 hours of blackjack, mostly 6-8 deck with some double deck. Bet spread $10-$125, ($10-$75 double deck)
Hit my low of - 312 units (-$3120) on 3rd day.
Hit high of +264 units (+2640) on 8th day
Finished up 186 units (+1860). Was hoping for slightly better, but seemed adequate after rocky start.
Spent 1 afternoon downtown and was backed off twice! (only two back offs of trip) Once at El Cortez after about 10 minutes at double deck. Had only spread from $10 to $50! seems the downtown joints are real sensative.
Each time I visit Vegas (twice a year) seems there are fewer stand 17 games. Almosty nonexistant now
Some of the bigger places like MGM, where I stayed three nights, have like 50 tables open, making it very easy to wong in and out of games. (I mostly wong out) That alone makes the games superior to AC where I normally play.
All in all a good trip, great weather, did some swimming ( I like that flowing river pool at the MGM.), and am looking forward to my next trip in february. Until then its back to the AC grindwith a few short trips to foxwood mixed in. yuk!
Question: wondering how many of you have relocated to vegas from other areas over the years??
