Good bye T.I., hello Luxor.
I did some heavy play at Luxor about a year ago on some dollar 9/6 Jacks, but haven't played anything but quarters since. And I've been somewhat stiffing them lately, especially on the $1000 trip.
So, naturally, the offer improved. I booked 2 nights, $125 free play, $150 resort credit, NO RESORT FEE.
And free parking. What a perk. :/
We got checked in and hit up the MLIFE booth. Long story short, I ended up with $185 in free play.
I put $20 in and played the freeplay through. It's the "Participant Trophy" kind of freeplay where you play your hand, and then it tops up your machine with a dollar amount matching what you played. Basically, you feel like you are winning every single hand!
It went extremely well, and I ended up with $241.00.
Nice to have a stake for the day, not costing me a dime. Thanks MILF!!!!
Since Luxor treated us so well, what did we do? Headed over to The Orleans Hotel and Casino to play there for the afternoon.
Off-strip places are pretty much VP heaven, and we can see ourselves staying here on future trips.
A lot of interesting things happened in the afternoon, including this almost jaw-dropper:
You are probably asking yourself, 'Flushiepants, why is that so spayshull?'
Well, besides being my eleventy billionth four to a royal, one card short, there is something odd about the hand.
