46 hours at age 43

I arrive at 11pm tonight (Friday) and leave at 9pm Sunday. It's my 32nd trip to Vegas if I counted correctly, so I'm far from a Vegas Virgin, but I want this trip to be memorable. I'm happily married and subject to drug testing at work, so no hookers or blow for me.

Off the cuff goals
1. Post Pictures
2. Cash at Aria NL Tourney
3. Win a parlay sports bet
4. Hit some Craps Bonus Bets, ideally the 6 number Fire Bet (for the first time)
5. Have fun.

It's only 2 days, so I hope to keep the updates going until I board the return flight home. Wish me luck.

I was hoping this was an attempt to play 46 hours straight. But good luck!

I thought the same, which would have blowed my mind. I think (at age 40-something) I've played past 1:30 am once since 2017, and that I haven't put in over 7 hours in one session in ages.

Give em hell anyway!

I play hard and fast, but definitely not 46 hours straight. Although that would definitely be memorable.

I did the same thing at your age, and ended up playing 26 hours in 2 days. Run good!

Re: 46 hours at age 43


And weíre here!

My cet bonus offer this month is if I earn 25 tcís on three separate days, they give me a whopping bonus of 100 tcís. So I feed $100 into a dollar slot and get my 25tcís. And I cashed out a $10. Looks like cet is winning so far.

I buyin for $400 at a $25 craps table and within 5 minutes it is gone.

This is not the start I was looking for. Off to Cosmo to turn it around.

Flamingo was a loser, 300 I think. Another 300 at Cromwell. Good thing Iím getting all these free beers to ease the pain.

Re: 46 hours at age 43


Even though Iíve been to Vegas so many times and always look for steak and egg specials for breakfast, Iíve never made the short walk over to Ellis island for their 6.99 special.

I did today and am glad I did. Very good flavor and they donít even try to rip you off with the coffee at 1.99. I know Iíve paid 4.99 for coffee with other steak and egg specials. The older waitress was right on point with a pleasant attitude and deserved the $5 tip. It was definitely worth the early morning walk.

Re: 46 hours at age 43

I ended up losing $20 at Ellis island, so they definitely made money off the breakfast special. I walked back to planet hollywood thankful that it hadnít reached 90 degrees yet. Iíve made 9,000 steps already today. Back at p.ho and won $85 in craps and another $115 on wheel of fortune slot machine. So Iím positive for the day. I also placed a 4 team and 5 team parlay for a combined $100. It will return $2100 if all 5 win. Iím gonna play this aria 11am tourney this morning and hope to be there all day.

lol, I thought so too. I was prepared to be impressed.

( If someone can go 46 hours at 40+, w/o chemical aid, that would be a feat.)

Not sure how interesting a saga this thread will evolve into, but have fun.

Re: 46 hours at age 43

The day was going well. I had $25 match play at Park mgm. I won it and cashed out ahead $100. I went to aria and registered for the tourney and had some time to kill so I bought into craps for $300. It went fast with another $300, so not positive for the day any more. Need to cash in the tourney and/or hit the sports bet.

I coulda been a contender, Charlie. You shoulda watched out for me a little bit. Why'd you let me go in there with AJ against AQ ? You shoulda watched out for me Charlie. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am.

Enjoying the TR, but let us know what games you are playing. Here you tell us how much you lost but not how you lost it.

Try drinking a greyhound and playing some VP instead of basic slots.

Good luck!

Re: 46 hours at age 43

Thanks drbeech. Iím such a craps degen. Thatís where 90% of my play goes and 100% of the above losses at flamingo and Cromwell were craps. I throw the occasional benji into a slot to watch the pretty lights, and hope for dream.

Re: 46 hours at age 43

So this morning I lost $100 in a wheel of fortune slot then went to the craps table. I bought in for $300 on a $15 table. I start with $60 each on 6 and 8 and increase by $30 when they hit. Iíll also bet $10 on the hardways. If the table gets hot, Iíll add 5 and 9. After 10 minutes I was up and started giving back, so I cashed out ahead $200. For the day, Iím up $100. If I can keep that up, it will be a good day.
