We ultimately spent a lot of time on Fremont Street since our hotel was there. Our first stroke of luck was getting to stay at the Plaza hotel. It was super nice and unbelievably cheap at only $8.10 per night. When you include the $10 daily resort fee our 5 night stay was just under $100. I tried to take what notes I could while vegasing it up. Here is what I was able to document.

  • I could not believe how many people were up playing slots at 7:15 in the morning when I went down to the hotel coffee shop each day.
  • I found out I really like craps, when playing the new electronic version of it. Found $5 on the pass line at the Excalibur. I sat down and rolled the point, so I won $10.
  • Won the free slot tournament at the Plaza. Converted my $20 in free play prize to $37 in cash. Yeah!
  • Jeremy won $34 when a lady went on a 40 roll streak on the electronic craps machine.
  • Pimped ourselves out for 3 hours in a time share tour for the Grandview, and got tickets for Chris Angel and the Titanic exhibit in return. Found out that when people promise a no pressure sales seminar, they are lying.
  • Found out that the first price you are shown for a time share will always be beat, several times.
  • Found out how to drink for really cheap while playing cheap games at many casinos.The key is to sit down and play just long enough to receive a free drink. Take your drink and meander around the casino. When your drink is empty, repeat.
  • Finally, decided that my most favorite game in Vegas is Sigma Derby, especially if all the seats are full. Too much fun. 
Next up is San Diego. Until then...
