This is part three of a four part Las Vegas trip report. To start at the beginning, go here!
I woke up with $20 cash left from last night’s losing session. My “no ATM until you have no cash left” rule is still in effect so I need to get to losing it!
I took the bus downtown. My first stop is Fitzgeralds, where I have $10 free slot play on my card. I LOVE casinos that give you free slot play as a promo. I got $5 in one shot but ended up playing it down and left with zero for my free play.
I walked over to the El Cortez to eat breakfast (at noon). I lost ten bucks here. Sigh.
Back to Fitzgeralds with $10 to spend before I hit the ATM. OH HEY, again it worked. I put the $10 into Monopoly and cashed out with $50. I went and got fives for that and came back and won AGAIN. I did this a few times and ended up with $160.
I really love my ATM rule.
I took my new found winnings and decided to head to Binions. I have a love/hate relationship with this casino. I’ve never had an okay day here. Only great ones or terrible ones. You never know which one you are going to get, which I guess is why it’s called gambling. This is also the one casino where I don’t get mad at myself for losing because even if I do, I am guaranteed to rack up enough comps for a Binions burger.
I played a Press Your Luck slot and it gives me NOTHING at all. What is up with this machine? It gave me so much money just last week!
Stopped for a Binions burger, then went back to Fitzgeralds.
I went upstairs to my favorite nickel triple play machine. As I have mentioned before, this machine is my baby. I’ve noted that she sometimes has sound and sometimes doesn’t. I like it better when she has sound. I’m sure she is going to die one day soon – twice now I have been to her and she wouldn’t accept bills. I have a feeling that after I hit all three progressive royal jackpots, they are going to take her away.
This is as far as my notes go. I HATE when I do that. I’m too senile to remember what else I did this day. I do know that I was in my room on time to watch Without a Trace. So maybe that last entry was made around nine-ish and I went back to my room at that point. Maybe I went back because I won, maybe I went back because I lost. I don’t know. I’ll never know……
