Find a Penny, Pick It Up and All Day Long You’ll Have Good Luck!

Once again, I went to bed with the blinds open so that the sun was my alarm clock.  I am still at Fremont hotel.  This morning I lingered around my room for awhile to delay my scheduled degeneracy.   I was out by 9:30.

I stopped at the Cleopatra Keno machines near the lobby.  These machines are a mere 43 steps from the room elevators.  Super convenient for me.

I lost $10 before winning $55.  I cashed out with $53.

Breakfast was at Binions today, using comps.  Once  I was done eating, I continued on my quest to play a minimum of $20 in every Downtown casino.  For all the time I spend down here, it sure has been a long time since I have darkened the doors of Golden Nugget and Golden Gate.  Maybe I just don’t like gold?

My first stop though, was Plaza.  I have a free play coupon and I want to win big with it.  The gambling gods denied me my wish.

Next was Golden Gate.  I haven’t been in here since the renovations.  It looks completely different.   A good blogger would have photos to show you.  So I do not have photos to show you.

I lost playing Cleopatra Keno.  Then I lost playing Buffalo.  Then lost some more playing Cleopatra Keno again.

Up next was Golden Nugget.  I took advantage of being here by stopping at Starbucks for a venti iced green tea latte.  These are so good.  I knew I was going to lose here, but I had to try.  Golden Nugget is very Strip-like in every way, including that it stole my money with the quickness.

I went back to my room for a nap, but I could not sleep.  So I decided to take the free shuttle over to Sam’s Town and use my free play coupons.

I got off the shuttle and instead of immediately entering the casino, I walked to Boulder Highway to stop at the Rebel gas station for cheap cigarettes.   On the ground outside, was a penny on heads.  This must mean my luck is about to change!

Oh hey, look at that!

First person to mention the lack of a kicker will accidentally hit max bet on their next time at a slot machine and lose all their money.

I came back to Fremont and went to my room to make out with my winnings.  Then I continued on my quest to visit every Downtown casino.  This is day three of trying to accomplish this.  How on earth am I going to handle my goal of visiting every Strip casino this trip, if I cannot manage to get through all these tiny, clustered places?

As I walked over to Main Street Station, I stopped at Lappert’s for an iced chai latte.   I took some photos of the ice cream flavors for anyone who is interested.

I left Main Street Station a winner!   I went to play in California and hit $80 on a Buffalo slot machine.  Today is such a great day!

I decided to celebrate my wins not by degenerate gambling, but by getting a massage at Happy Feet at El Cortez.  I love this place.  $20 for an hour long foot massage.   I have never seen anyone else in here, so I am scared they will not last long.  So everyone please, PLEASE, please go here so they stay in business.

I felt so good after my massage.  I sat down and played a Buffalo slot where you play four games at one time.  I was surprised that I was able to last on here without going broke.  I cashed out so many times that I had to keep cashing my TITO tickets because I was out of cash.  I left here up $300.

On my way back to my room at Fremont, I had to “GET OFF MY LAWN” some party goers who were hanging out at the Ultimate X Bonus Streak machines.  They may have cursed me because I could not win a damned thing.

Off to bed I go, up $600 for the day WAHOO!
