I wrote my first trip report in April of 2011 - "7 Nights, 3 Hotels and 1 Jackpot." After writing about staying at the Cosmopolitan, Mandalay Bay and Caesars Palace and hitting a big win on a Wizard of Oz slot, I wrote "Probably will take another nice win to generate a 2nd TR. I hope there will be a 2nd trip report." Well, it's been 30 months and a number of trips but here is my 2nd trip report.
The 7 nights were Thursday, October 24th through Wednesday, October 30th. The 3 slot tournaments were 1) Mandalay Bay's $100,000 Drop Dead Gorgeous Tournament on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and 2) Flamingo's $150,000 Goblin Gold Tournament overlapping on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and 3) Flamingo's $75,000 Spooktacular Tournament on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
To eliminate any suspense, we (J and I) came in the bottom half of all 3 tournaments and the 2 hand pay wins were $1,403.75 and $1,608. If you want to read details about any of this, here comes a whole bunch of details. Besides the tournaments and hand pay info, I'll throw in some sights, sounds and tastes we experienced.
