When we last left off, I was having a fantastic day of gambling. I had the the second biggest Las Vegas win of my lifetime. My top Las Vegas win was back in March on a Buffalo slot machine. If you missed that one, you can read about it here.
I had retired to my room to take a nap. A few people have asked me how I could nap after having such a nice win. The simple answer is that I was quite content with my win and probably fell asleep dreaming of what I wanted to spend my money on. Hint: It will be used to travel.
When I woke up, I went back out and headed for Fiesta Rancho. I like trying new places. I also like going to Station casinos because they have cheapo cigarettes. I walked to the bus singing “I have two thousand dollarssssssssss, I have TWO thousand dollars, I have TWO THOUSAND dollars, I HAVE TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS” because it is true. I did have TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS of winnings from today alone in my room safe.
Oh and let’s talk about the room safes at Fremont, shall we? They are in the closet (that does not have a door, which is fine.) But there is a step up into the closet. You can kind of see the step in this photo. But only because I am telling you about it so you are scanning to find it, and then are. In real life, no one is warning you. So every time you go to look lovingly at your wins, you smash your toes into the step.
Fiesta Rancho was a huge bust. I could not get anything going. This was terrible. I didn’t want to immediately leave so I kept playing and losing. I hate when you make an effort to visit a place and spend less time in the place than you did on the bus going there. But I had to leave because the casino was bleeding me dry.
As an added bonus, the shopping bag my cigarettes came in melted all over my arm when I was waiting for the bus back. My hand and arms were covered in black ink. YAY.
I went to Binions and had a Motherlode $10 dining voucher to use. For the first time ever, I had really bad service here. Normally meals here are perfection, which is why I have eaten here probably a hundred times in my life. Literally. So I will let this one slide.
After eating, I played around Binions. I wanted to play MY machine that gave me my two big wins. But there was always someone on it.
I decided to play in Fremont a bit. I played Ultimate X Double Double Bonus video poker. I hate when I put in a $100 bill but that’s what I did. I was close to zero when I hit for $60 so I cashed that out and ran. But not very far because I then found myself at my favorite Supertimes Pay video poker machines. This is why this machine is my favorite.
I cashed this out and went to bed. YAY.
I am going home tomorrow. Although I had said this morning that if I won a thousand dollars I would stay an extra day, I decided to not do that once I had a thousand dollar win.
