I am awake at 7:00 at Fremont Hotel in beautiful Downtown Las Vegas. I love reading the notes I write in the morning. So much whining about not wanting to go home tomorrow. It turns out I priced flights home for the next day, so I could stay an extra day. But they were $200 so nope. I also wrote if I win $1000, I would buy a new flight home. I do not remember writing this. Let’s see how that goes, shall we?
I am out of my room at 8:00. I count my steps and 41 of them later, I am at the Dunkin Donuts counter.
I decide to try a four game Buffalo slot machine here. After almost losing $40, I got a $79 bonus. It was less exciting and way more relieving.
I head over to Binions and right off the bat, look what I got on Cleopatra Keno! That’s quarters, so $272.50. Now we’re talking!
I walked from here to Main Street Station. I have never played video poker at their Boar’s Head Bar. This is a very well known video poker bar. Guys, it reeks of vomit up there. Like terribly. Still I played and hit four of a kind sixes (no photo) and four of a kind tens (photo!)
I have this brilliant idea to put the $75 TITO I got here, into a dollar video poker game. Because I have never gotten a dollar royal and I am overdue. Aaaaaaaaaaaaand I am still overdue because I hit nothing.
I have a $60 TITO left and I only ventured $40 cash so I am still up $20, despite having just lost $75. Degenerate math in full effect ova heeeeeeeeeeyah.
I played some Ultimate X Double Double Bonus video poker in nickels. YAY.
I leave here and stop at my California Buffalo on my way back to Binions. I am totally kicking ass today.
Oh wow! You guys, I am doing it. I am having the perfect Las Vegas morning. This is the greatest thing ever!
I stop and play some Double Double Bonus video poker on quarters . The progressive Royal is $1670. I want this so very badly but $100 did not get it, so I walk back to Binions.
I play around here a bit and before I know it, I have 40 points to get two swipes for the Motherlode promotion. The first is for a free gift, the second is for $15 dining credit. I take that to the coffee shop with me and get a cheese omelet. The food here is always excellent, even more so when it is free.
It is 11:48 as I eat breakfast. I am going to do a “cigarette after eating” stop and then go take a nap.
I sat down at a machine that was very nice to me back in March. I play quarter Double Double Bonus video poker. First hit:
That glare bothers me. I could not at all get a photo without it in it. I had the same problem back in March.
I keep playing.
Now I know what you are thinking. You are thinking things like “Oh shit, Jennifer hit a Royal Flush!!!” Well guys, I hate to tell you this, but you are wrong.
I did not get a Royal Flush.
I got a Royal Flush AND ACES WITH A KICKER OH MY GOD HOLY SHIT LOOK AT IT.
Holding one Ace. Do you believe this shit? I could not. I just sat there gaping at it.
I cashed out for $1600 and went to my room to show my cute little stuffed dog what his mom did. I also tried taking an obligatory cash spiral photo but i suck at it. Not only cannot I not master a cool spiral, I only pulled out the Royal winnings and forgot to include the rest. Oops?
And just like that, it is nap time!
