Vegas Trip Report

Postby Peijen » Mon Nov 29, 2004 1:26 am

It was alot of fun. Too much walking, and too much buffet, but damn it was fun. DONT PLAY CRAP UNLESS YOU HAVE LOTS OF MONEY TO BURN. Played some slots for cars, didn't win any car, but I actually made money on those slot machines* ... only to lose it all later. Went to a magic show, that's pretty cool, didn't pay much attention to the magic, but the girls are hot. DONT PLAY CRAP UNLESS YOU HAVE LOTS OF MONEY TO BURN. When to the car show and looked at 2005 model of new cars, cool stuff. Played roulette and actually won ... then lost the winning to the crap. DONT PLAY CRAP UNLESS YOU HAVE LOTS OF MONEY TO BURN. In the end I lose about $40, all on the crap table in about 5 minutes. More to come tomorrow when I feel like it.

George, you need to post our idea for the game.

* the hight point of my gambling career is when I turn a quarter into $33, but you all know what happend to that money.

Overall, very positive, but with a bunch of bad parts.

Lessons Learned
1. You need a minimum of $500 to play craps. Probably $200 or more for roulette. Anything less and a single losing streak will knock you out. We lost about $40 apiece in craps and it took only ten rolls to lose it.

2. What is lucky for someone else will not be lucky for you. If you play a slot machine that someone else did well on, you will lose. If you match someone else's roulette bet, your own numbers will come up and theirs will not.

3. The buses are too slow. Walking sucks. Travel only by catapult.

4. There is almost nothing to do that isn't gambling or eating. We did a lot of other stuff, but it still only occupied 15-20% or our time.

5. To win at roulette, bet numbers associated with your guns. For those of you without any guns, go out and buy some; then bet their numbers.

6. Play $0.50-1.00 of penny slots at each casino until you end up with a net win. Then, play only that machine at only that casino for the rest of the trip.

7. No matter what the machine tells you, maximum credits per line and maximum lines are sucker bets.

8. Bet with the streak, and don't be afraid to win. Well, we didn't really learn that, but we were told it.

9. Car brocures distributed by the car's manufacturer may not describe all of the cars flaws.

10. The Stratosphere is too far away from everything. Don't stay there until they install a zip-line to the center of the strip.

11. Don't waste money trying to win a car. Instead, put up a sheet across a stage. When you lower the sheet, an H2 will have appeared. Trade in the H2 for the car you want.

dude. I went to Vegas not too long ago. I was at this party and we all just decided to go.

1) I won ten bucks at New York-New York and immediately stopped gambling. Because you don't actually win any money until you decide to stop gambling with it.

2) I got a great deal on these Italian leather shoes for only $100. At first I regretted it because I felt I only bought them because I was cajoled by the gorgeous saleslady from Kiev. But then I realized what awesome shoes these are and what an incredible deal I got. Looks like hot women are not always bullshitting you.

3) In fact, this was the summer of 2002 and Vegas was really suffering from a post 9/11 collapse of tourism and everything was cheap. We even got let into some elitny clubs which was especially surprising since a) I'm a dufus and any security guard who can't see past my Italian leather shoes deserves to be immediately fired and b) one of the guys we went with was a cokehead who was wearing shorts.

4) The guys I went with bought me a lapdance from this large breasted blonde in a nurse outfit. I would have preferred the Catholic School Girl, but its the thought that counts.

5) The only reason I went on the trip was because I wanted to hook up with this one chick. But the only reason she was going on the trip was because she promised they could use her car. Once I was going, they didn't need her car and she decided to stay home. This bitter irony kinda bummed me out for the whole trip.

sounds familiar.

It kind of sucks if you go to a club for new years because of someone, but they end up not going because they get 'sick.' What kind of an excuse is that?

I'm not bitter. noooo.
