The event went off well!
There were 7 entrants, which was a good amount.
We started at Mirage after eating at BLT Burger, because we found one of these machines in the Sportsbook
Digital dog racing
We ended up doing a trial run the night before and both nights were pretty much determined by slot play because someone had a ridiculous jackpot in relation to the overall stakes.
Luckily it was my wife that hit the $400 jackpot during the "bigger"event. When she got out ahead by that much, it allowed me to justify putting $42 on a single number in roulette, my remaining budget for this event. Considering we were at the $5 table in the IP, I got a couple of looks when I put that bet down. Since I don't gamble big, it definitely got my heart pumping.
We ended up playing a cheap $60 poker tournament at the Flamingo to finish the night off, since the IP poker room had 3 of the 3/6 mixed games going on Sunday night. I really felt like giving up the rest of my buyin to Gambling Olympics, but since I was the organizer, I couldn't do it. The tournament was actually a good way to handle poker and changed the overall outcome of the event. In the future I would maybe take poker out altogether to keep the time requirements down.
Roshambo added some more socializing to the event and allowed more head-to-head **** talking.
I think they took out the Big Wheel from the IP floor with all of the construction going on. That was sad.
Overall it made pit gambling way more fun and it was a great way to mix up all of the time at the poker tables
