Wednesday Oct. 28, 2015 - Day 7
We took a day trip up to Laughlin to check it out. I kind of wanted to see if I could find the casino where some of Leaving Las Vegas was filmed, and in particular an old coin dropper Universal Big Bertha - same as the one the D had for so long, most recently upstairs. Elisabeth Shue got kissed up against that machine in the movie and I understand the scene was filmed in Laughlin.
We headed up and played at the Aquarius, which was pretty acceptable. The paytables are amazing, actually. The place is brimming with full pay video poker including a Jacks game with a 350 coin straight flush that pays back around 100%.
Making up the shortfall were billions of little moth like bugs which have decided to pretty much invade and take over Laughlin, for Hallowe'en I suppose.

The Quad Queen was down too until she made a last second comeback on Desperation Dollars.
