When we last left off, I had just had my biggest win of any Vegas trip. I went to my room for a break. But not for long because I have a ticket for Mystere, right next door at Treasure Island. I took some pretty photos on my walk over.
I cashed that baby out and went to see Mystere again. I absolutely love this show.
Afterwards, I was starving. My itinerary said to go to Ellis Island for dinner. My common sense said to continue working on my goal of playing in every casino on the Strip. My gambling addiction said to go Downtown and gamble. So Downtown we went! While walking to the bus, I saw these fountains at Wynn I had never seen before. Are they new or am I just oblivious?
Also, can we talk about how much I love the camera on my new phone? Samsung Galaxy S7.
I went to Binions and stopped to a burger. While doing so, I somehow calmed the fuck down and decided to follow my common sense side and go back to the Strip to continue on visiting every casino.
First stop: Stratosphere!
I didn’t venture very far into the casino because I found a Buffalo slot machine and played that. I cashed out even after a bonus. I went back outside and took the bus to Circus Circus.
I guess Circus Circus either doesn’t take MLife cards, they still have their own slot club. I feel like I had this information in the back of my head, but I totally forgot about it. So I didn’t use a card here, which I wish I would have since I did end up playing for a long time on a Buffalo machine that kept bringing me back up to $20 every time I got down.
Then I switched machines and hit a bonus for $280. Not sure why I do not have a photo of this?
I cashed out and stopped in the restroom before leaving. As I was in the stall, I hear two women going at it. By “it” I mean screaming about wanting to fuck each other up over some guy. I am sitting there waiting for it to go beyond screaming at each other and for fists to start flying. This is going on FOREVER and I say fuck it, I can’t spend the rest of my night in this stall. I get out and discover it is ONE crazy lady fighting with herself. She is doing both “parts” of the arguing, with herself, in the mirror. Okay great.
Next up is Slots a Fun.
To say this place is depressing is an under statement. It is mostly empty, most of the machines have broken bill acceptors. The one machine I could find to take my money had broken buttons so I had to touch the screen to hold cards. I wasn’t planning on staying long but I felt bad for the poor cocktail waitress working in a graveyard so I ordered a soda from her.
On my way out, I saw security chase a family out from their bowling area because they had little kids. You need to be 21 to be inside the casino. Ah duh.
I would recommend that if you are in Vegas with friends and want to hang out with just your friends, this might be the place for it. You would have it all to yourself.
There was a woman vomiting into a trash can to the right of me as I took these photos.
My next stop was Encore.
Obligatory photo of the Resorts World sign.
And the butterfly statue.
I played Buffalo slots here, of course. I was on my third $20 when I hit a bonus for $50 and decided that was my cue to go. I probably would have stayed longer, but I have places to go and money to lose. As I was cashing out, I saw a penny on heads on the ground. I picked that up. I also heard a THUMP and realized I had left my brand-new-just-purchased-at-Walgreens Diet Pepsi at my machine and that was the sound of someone throwing it out.
Obviously I rescued it because I am at fancy Encore and it is MY Diet Pepsi dammit.
I walked between Encore and Wynn and accidentally found the Popeye statue. I would tell you what this is about, except I have no idea.
While trying to find a machine to play, I found a Wynn Megabucks machine and figured this would be my only opportunity to win the Megabucks. I allow myself to put a $100 through. Normally a $100 bill would be too rich for my blood, but I won $1800 today so why not?
I didn’t win the Megabucks.
Next stop is Palazzo. I lost here real quick and moved onto my least favorite place, The Venetian. This place reeks so bad.
I stopped at Walgreens again to get some more drinks, and to get rid of some change. My purchase came to $7.99 and I got mad and told the cashier I was giving him 99 cents in change. He was fine with it and I unloaded a fuckton of nickels on him.
In the Venetian, I actually won $100 on a Cleopatra Keno. Some machines here have USB ports to charge your phones.
There were also these signs on the TITO cash out/ATM machines. I wonder how many issues they had with this that they had to put signs up. How degenerate do you have to be to try and take a cash advance on your BUSINESS credit card?!
Next up was Casino Royale.
I was too lazy to get a card here so I just lost quick and left.
I wanted to continue but I stopped myself from pulling an all nighter and just gambling until the morning came. I kind of wish I had kept going.
Back at Mirage, I was happy to give back $200 of my winnings before going to bed.
