    Vegas Valentines Weekend at PH

    Due to restrictions on this board I had to make a number of posts in order to include all information and videos.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ~ Flight Report
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    SW must be getting in some new planes because this had the new plane smell AND an extra inch of leg room.

    This first is a general picture.


    I thought the volcano was interesting. Never expected to see this.


    Awesome flight. Luggage still takes a while. Limo driver was there, but not with a limo this time.

    Instead it was an Escalide. Not as cool as a limo but still a hell of a lot better than a cab.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ~ Check-in at Planet Hollywood and Comps
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Arrived at PH and had two options for our Vista room.
    Option 1 - view of the Paris tower and Bellagio fountains but this room won't be available for the next few hours.
    Option 2 - a non view room that is ready immediately.

    We actually opted for option 2 as we really like to shower and get a change of clothes after a 5 hour flight.
    The person behind the counter stated that we had a $125 food and beverage comp.
    Our host was supposed to get a $125 Casino cash and not food and beverage comp.
    Since we usually get our food comped we really would prefer the cash for gambling as opposed to

    use it on stuff we already are getting comped.
    We ask if she could look into the Casino cash but she said all she can review are the hotel related items.
    Long story short we actually got both the $125 Food and Beverage credit AND the $125 Casino play.
    We exceeded the $125 easily and even picked up a few PH hats.
    In the end everything was covered. The limo, the room, all the food and hats. Cheers to our host.

    ~ First meal - BurGR
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Called BurgR but they don't take reservations. It was going to be about a 80 minute wait.
    The great thing about this place is you give them your phone number and they will text you when ready.
    After getting on the list we were able to shower, go to Walgreens for our soda, Amp and water to stock the frig.

    Our last meal here we opted for the parmasan fries which weren't very good. This time we went for the sweet potato fries.
    I have tried them before but not here and didn't like them but at the BurgR place they were impressive. I am sure the powdered sugar sprinkled on top help. It was nice that you get a canister of powdered sugar in case you want to spinkle on more.
    We opted to get two different burgers, cut them in half and share a half. Both were supposed to be medium but came back more well. It really didn't matter because their "well" was so much more tender and juicey than any other place does a medium. This is our second visit to BurgR and both times they have been outstanding burgers and worth the price.

    I had the Hells Kitchen Burger.
    If I recall correctly my wife had the Chanterelle Burger.

    Here is an image of the Hells Kitchen Burger:


    Here is the Chanterelle Burger.


    Here are the fries:

    ~ Pre-gambling drinking
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Back to the room to drop off the $16 free candy. By now my first drink is gone and we head downstairs to Fat Tuesday in the PH mall for number 2. Its the longest line I have seen at this place. Back at MGM it was also the longest I have seen. Usually our trips start on Sunday and this is the first in a long time we are in Vegas on a Saturday night and am sure it played a huge part in it.

    Next stop is the cage to get money. Now we can officially start gambling. Beginning to gamble while starting a 2nd Fat Tuesday drink seems like the recipe for potential disaster. I like the 190 Octain in those big cups. For those who haven't tried it I highly recommend it but be careful because it is made with 190 proof Grain and sneaks up on you. For those who drink it know what I mean. You feel find like it has no affect then its like getting sucker punched by Tyson similar to that guy in the Vegas movie.

    ~ Slots Preview
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Nothing to brag about this trip. No major hits at all.
    The Top Dollar machine hit mostly its standard 30 credits.
    I don't recall encountering so many bonus rounds where we won less than the per spin bet.
    In fact, we had a few bonus rounds that won 0. There should NEVER be a time when a person receives 0 for a bonus rounds.
    I placed the HL Top Dollar machine the first night. Usually I play it each night and hit a bonus or two, but this time it was only played the first night. Since it didn't even encounter a single
    bonus, I was not going near it again this trip.
    This machine saw some time. I figured if I won, it would cover most of my first night losses.




    We played soooo many slots. What you see here doesn't include the ones we played briefly.
    These are just some of the videos. There are others uploaded that can be viewed if interested.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ~ Iron Man
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    This was played early morning which is when we mostly walk the strip and try different games.
    I really enjoyed the game and would have wanted to put in some significant time at night but it wasn't near where we usually hang at night.

    Here is a video of general play and a few bonus rounds.
    It is just over 4 mins. The first bonus rounds is around the 1:10 mark. Excuse the part where I forget to turn off the camera but if you continue watching it goes to another bonus. Sometimes the
    machine will tell you a bonus is coming up.





    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ~ Diamonds & Sevens
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    This is an older game. If you watch (and listen) to all 3 videos in concecutive order you can sort of hear a bit of frustration.
    It is a bit funny when I first reivewed the videos. You can almost hear the 190 octane kicking in.

    ~ God Father
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    This was a machine with a high turnover.
    Although there were always people playing you could walk by a few minutes later and it would all be new people.
    Don't recall seeing anyone spending a significant amount of time on this machine.
    In fact we weren't there more than a few minutes.

    The bonus round is around 20 seconds in. If you watch closely during the bonus round it ends up with the results every time.





    It was after this bonus round that we left.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ~ From the Blazing 777s Series
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Not sure of the official name of these slots but there were pretty fun.
    The bonuses appears a number of times but excluding my two ok results, they were anti-climatic as you will see in the video.

    This first video shows my first bonus which was 0 credits.

    ~ Green Machine
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    This is a unique machine and the most basic of slot machines.
    No confusing symbols are trying to figure out if you won or not.
    You can't get more basic than this machine.
    Nothing significant to see but it is such a unique machine and mentioned in a few posts I thought it would be useful for those who
    wondered about it. You will notice a number of completely blank spins.

    ~ From the Quick Hits Family
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I believe Quick Hits has a large family of slots and this is just one variety. This is the first time playing this machine and we really enjoyed it.










    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ~ Mopnopoly
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    This is one of the newer Monopoly games. As with most of the Monopoly slots I give it a try to see the bonus and that is it.
    These machines don't seem to pay much on the bonus but their graphics and creativeness is worth giving it a try.

    I thought this machine was pretty neat. It was like the multiple play video poker but with slots.
    Sorry, no video, just this image.

    ~ Top Dollar Slots Review (25 cent and $1)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Here are my two best hits on Top Dollar and excluding my Craps win, these are my top wins from any given machine this trip.

    Although the Top Dollar wasn't giving any major bonuses, this machine has some kind of hold on me and I can play it all day. These are just some of the bonuses as I didn't record them all.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to post all of your pics and videos. I know how time consuming and frustrating it can be. We all do appreciate it. Sounds like a great time, sorry you didn't get any major hits. Sounds great that you got everything covered in the end. Love it when that happens. Neat pics from the plane.... and the volcano! Interesting!
