Halloween Stumble Trip Report-3 hand pays & I still lost!

I had a blast in Las Vegas over Halloween! Attended several meets, saw lots of friends, had 3 hand pays and still lost but would do it all again with perhaps only changing the losing part. ;) Lots of photos of the meet, wins and food porn. I also attended the Cosmopolitan Million Dollar slot tournament award event. I wasn't part of the tourney but had a couple friends who participated.

Due to all the photos (click on them to enlarge) the trip report is on my blog, where there are no advertisements. Hope you enjoy it.

This is called the Halloween Stumble report because the main reason for the trip was to attend this event that GoldenGreeke organized.

Really enjoyed your TR - great as always. Love all of the pictures. Great wins - wow 3 handpays, but sorry to hear that you still lost :(

Funny - you mentioned twice in your TR about playing less than max bet. Definitely something I have been questioning myself. My husband won't play less than max and we went thru all of our planned bankroll on our trip in Aug. Couldn't hit on anything the first 3-4 days and then once we did manage to get some payouts - it was only enough to keep us playing to the end of our trip.

Yet on the two other trips I took earlier this year, one with my BFF and one with my daughter - neither of them will hardly if ever play max. So I tried playing less than max too and both trips I came home with almost half of my bankroll - yet it seemed like I actually played more and for sure cashed out with some nice $300-$500 wins.

I know it is all random - but maybe there is something to this.........

Thanks for the great TR.

I can't take it. I still have a day and a half to wait til I get to Vegas and your TR is making me all fidgety. Your food pics and slot pics are just making me nuts! I wanna go now!

As usual, sorry our dates didn't overlap. We're going to have to work toward getting it right in 2012. Also as usual, loved reading your report. They always make me so happy. :)

Thanks Evoni Awesome TR and great pictures as always! Your report filled in many of the gaps on the stumble I had completely forgot. I'll blame that on the booze lol.

Thanks B26marauder, and Fl-Mermaid!

AB2Vegas, it's my personal belief founded on nothing accurate according to Strictly Slots magazine, that some slots like Buffalo, Wicked Winnings, WMS, Alice in Wonderful, hit higher percentage wins when betting the lower amounts and not max. While I still find more of my wins these days come from the $1 and $5 slots, I'm going to start playing some of the penny slots at less then max and see how it goes. :)

Thanks yourstarla, have a fantastic trip and I can't wait to read about it when you return. I agree we must work on something for 2012 so we finally get to meet!

Goldengreeke, you and your family are so much fun! Thanks again for organizing the Stumble and dinner at Grand Lux. See you next April!

Thanks Jgates! It's easy to recognize GG, he does look like his photo! Have a wonderful trip next week, sorry we missed each other, but hopefully next year we'll be in Vegas at the same time and get a chance then. :)

As always you write a great report in a great style. I really love the way you add the photos and the descriptions. I have Miss Kitty on my iPad and iPhone and played it quite a bit today and some days on my lunch break. Thanks for another fun report and I look forward to the next one in a few weeks. :-) Like Starla said we will have to try again to meet up soon.
