Las Vegas Trip Report: Going Degenerate to Hit a Higher Tier Level at Boyd

Wednesday, December 15, 2010 

[This is part two of a nineteen night trip report.  If you want to start at the beginning, go here.]

Can’t sleep.  Up at 6:30 am at Gold Coast.  Out to gamble!  I play triple line nickel Double Double Bonus video poker:  $20-$0.

New wheel video poker, playing nickels:  $20-$30 via four of a kind nines.  Have you ever taken acid?   Well my blurry photo of those nines, that comes complete with flash orbs, looks like your acid trip.

Old wheel video poker: $20-$0

Press Your Luck slot machine: $40-$30

Quarter Double Double Bonus video poker: $30-$0

Breakfast was at the Gold Coast buffet.  Nothing special at all, but it is cheap and right here so it works for me.

After eating, I played quarter Double Double Bonus video poker and hit Aces!!  I love Aces.

I continue playing of course.  Same machine, $20-$0

Keno, $20-$0

I have $315.

Back to the room at 8:30 to shower and to apply some lucky glitter to my cash.

I am really close to hitting Sapphire level at Boyd.   I am going to go for it.

Today is “Pick a Gift Day” at the Gold Coast.  I got a spice rack. Ooooh.

Out at 9:15.

Invaders From the Planet Moolah slot: $15-$0.

I head over to the Palms to use a point multiplier coupon. They are only taking the point multiplier coupons on Fridays.  Today is Wednesday.  Guh.

I play anyway.   Quarter Double Double Bonus video poker.

$20 to four of a kind Jacks –  still cash out $0

This is not going very well.

Lost $40 or $60 or more?  The Palms blows today.  So do I for not stopping.

Back to the Gold Coast and lost some more money on a Zorro slot machine.

I have $105 left so I lost $210 total today.  That’s just great. So unnecessary.  Stupid Palms.  Stupid me.

I stopped for a sandwich at the Gold Coast and went to my room to hide my shame from the general public.

I would have liked to have napped, but I could not sleep at all.  I am back out at 4:30.

I have $75 left for tomorrow.

I eat at the Gold Coast buffet for dinner.  It’s free with 200 points via the American Casino Guide coupon.  At least I got something for my losses!  It doesn’t look like I’m getting my drink order taken ever.

After eating, I go full degenerate on dollar Double Double Bonus video poker.  I hit Jacks, ran it up to $350 and cashed out at ZERO!

I am now super close to hitting Sapphire but I have to take a break to go and watch Survivor.

I allow myself to go back out with $100 to try for Sapphire, leaving me short $300 for the future.

What a night.  I start to play dollar Double Double Bonus video poker.

$100-$300 by hitting four of a kind eights.

Cash out.

$100 in, hit four of a kind sevens: Get up to $350, cash out.

I made Sapphire and I am winning so I keep playing.

i hit Jacks again, $100-$250.

Played all over.  I love dollar video poker.  This is such a rare treat since it is not in my budget.   I am normally good with resisting the urge to play it.  Tonight, not so much.

I now have a full budget and an extra $100.

Today was a very brutal, very volatile day with money and I’m glad it’s all okay now.  I wanted to make Sapphire at Boyd but it could have ruined my trip.
