    The Spring Fling ti & Cosmo April 17-20

    Family trip this time. But that did not slow down the gambling debauchery, well, did not slow it down much.

    We spent 2 nights at Treasure Island and 2 nights at Cosmopolitan.

    I hit for $400 or more 8 times this trip, not too shabby. no handpays to report, but I was swinging for the fences.

    We saw a lot (Adventuredome, 2 pools, Shark Reef, Bellagio Conservatory, M&M World, Coke Store) and hated the travesty that is Eataly at Park MGM

    After reading your comments and looking at the pics I think the difference between the Ti and the Cosmo is a little bit more than toilet paper lol!!

    Great job as usual on these trip reports, it's obvious you put a lot of time and effort in to your presentations , and we really appreciate that.
    Your organizational skills and in depth knowledge of this industry make for enjoyable reading always, and as Rich99 said, " Thanks for taking us along with you "..

    Thank you so much for saying so! I've taken gambling trips, just been dragging ass on reports. Life sucks you down sometimes. The wife and I had a kid free getaway to Atlantic City last month. I gotta get around to creating that report sooner or later.

    Love it! I wish I would have thought of that line, I would have used it in my report!

    I keep telling myself I need to go back to the bigger clubs, MGM or CET, that way I can hop around more and play in more places in Vegas. Then, after doing so and getting my ass kicked on their tight slots, I usually feel better with the decent slot returns at these two Independent joints. As resorts, TP quality and by looks, both Cosmo and ti are polar opposites. But when you consider they both give you a fair shake on the slots, that is really the most important thing to me.

    Thanks Bettin! I do try to put on a good show. Sometimes its hard to do if I was getting my ass kicked all trip. I have been doing pretty decently though my last few rounds in vegas. I'm still waiting on an actual winning trip. I came so close this time!

    Really enjoy reading these reports. Do mind identifying some of the "grinders" you like or at least mention the characteristics that you see. (Manuf. year, top line payout, etc.) Noticed some of these were 3 reelers. We like Mr. Cashman and Original Gold Fish. We also take our FP and run it through VP and then play the slots for credit. We'll look for the slots on Game King. Hadn't see n any yet, but have found Blackjack that can play okay when going for credits.

    Thanks.

    I love to point out Grinders! I dont often say exactly where a certain machine is, I really do not want to draw too much attention to something on the Internet, and have it taken away.

    I do have a couple of short tutorials on my website.

    What you should be playing & The secrets to getting the most from your play. Those links are below.

    In a nutshell, I like the older IGT video slots. Texas Tea, Moneystorm Lobstermania and the like. There are no huge line hits, or major progressives to suck down the average expected payback per session. If you see a game with a $1MIL progressive, a chunk of the hold is feeding that. IE, less being returned in "average" sessions and much much more being given to one lucky player.

    Find a nice 5 line mechanical dollar slot. One that returns your bet back for mixed bars. Or, boring as they are, a classic like Double Diamond. There are many reasons why these older games are still in most casinos, people play them. And they wouldnt play an old shitty game if they always lost.

    @Grid Thank you. We typically do not play progressives, but they seem to be taking over the slot floors. Have really low rolled Texas Tea for drinks at Flamingo in LV in the past. We're off to Windsor tomorrow.
