Back from six weeks in Vegas.
  • Hello,all.
    I'm just back from spending 40 days in Neveda. I wanted to give it a shot and see how it might be trying to make a living.
    Let me start by saying I severely underestimated my expenses.Even though my hotel rooms were almost all comped,off of past play,my $250 a week food and walking around budget was off by an amazing margin.
    Its a lot tougher and much more boring to try to eak out a living as a low roller than I'd imagined.I did learn some amazing shortcuts for promos and comps(Harrahs has a promo where if you visit all six of their properties in five hours,they give you a $30 food comp),but my original thoughts of moving out there have been discarded.I'll follow up later.

    What was your Bankroll? top bet>?
  • I had two no-fee ATM cards.$2500 for gambling,$1500 everything else.
    My top bet was at Fiesta Henderson.Wierd situation.Using the $25 matchplay from LVA,I draw 9s to the dealers 6.I figure,what the hey,split the 9s and put up two greens,expecting them to say split for $25.She left the $50,I drew a duece,doubled down and won$150 for the hand.Other than that,I bet green a few times,think I got to $40 once.
    The trip was more to see if I could live,play and gamble in Vegas without becoming broke,obese,or a drunkard.
    Dispite an awful lot of walking,I grew out of two pairs of jeans.
    Tracked all my gambling-I dropped about $80 playing BJ in casinos(low point was 240 down,hi point was 165 up.)Won $600 playing Oscars Grind on roulette,lost $500 on slots and video poker
    I had a pretty good time,but gambling 5-6 hours a day,almost everyday got old real fast.

Howdy, Stranger!
