Las Vegas Trip Report: Final Day of a Winning Trip!

All good things must come to an end, right?   I wake up at Fremont hotel for my final day of this wonderful trip.  Not only am I winning, I have a nice stack of pristine $100 bills, which will come in handy for my trip to Myanmar later this year.  Between yesterday’s insane run of luck, and my insane run of luck back in March, I pretty much have all my travel though 2018 paid for.  How cool is that!?

First stop is Dunkin Donuts, second stop is next door at Binions to play on my magical machine.  Which is taken by someone else.  DAMMIT.

I walk back to Fremont and play quarter Double Double Bonus video poker.  First win of the day.

I have $10 dining credit that came with my room offer.  I went to the Paradise Cafe for breakfast and got an omelet.  It was pretty decent.

I decide to go visit my four-play Buffalo slot machine at El Cortez.  She is so mad at me this morning.  Something about how dare I leave her alone for days.  She refuses to warm up and $100 later, I am out the door much more angry with her than she is with me.

On my walk back, I noticed the Hennessy’s “World’s Largest Pint Glass” of Guinness is gone and replaced with this:

There is also the new White Castle.

And this.

From here, it was time for a nap.  But a nap would not take.  I still forced myself to stay in my room for a little while.  I do not want to go nuts with my winnings and then have less winnings.  Ya know?

I went back out a few hours later.  I was still doing well.

I played some Supertimes Pay at Fremont.  The only thing I won here was a pack of cigarettes left behind by someone else.

Then it was time to leave.  WAHHHHHHHHHH.

I took the WAX bus to the airport and finally figured out where the bus stop is.  It is outside door # 44 in the departures level.  OH.  No wonder I could never find it, I was always looking on the arrivals level.  Good to know.

My flight home featured a lightning show outside.  I have somehow never seen that before.  It was pretty damn cool.

For those of you wondering…no, I am not going back to Las Vegas in 2017.  I have a very big trip coming up in November / December.  I will be spending 22 hours in Guangzhou, China.  Then 27 days in Myanmar.  Finishing out with two days in Chiang Rai, Thailand.  That fills up the end of my year.

We will see what next year brings.  I have been getting offers from El Cortez, Four Queens and Binions for the first time in many years.  I also have comped nights at Mandalay Bay, presumably less from my degeneracy and more because of the shooting.  This is yet another real life reality that comes from a tragic event.

As always, thanks for reading!

    Nice for your final day to be a good one! So cool that you took home all those winnings to use for future travel, too.

    I don’t even know what to think about 5.9% alcoholic root beer. lol

    What kind of offers are you getting from Four Queens and Binion’s?
