Las Vegas Trip ReportAuthor: Jaco
Date of Trip: April 2008
The driver and bell hop had never heard of me. Shocking!
I overpaid the driver and dragged my own bag into the Wynn. Ahhhh . . . . I love this place. We walked quickly over to check in – I could really feel the money burning a hole in my pocket.
"Sorry sir, our computers are down, we will manually take your information and call you when we have a room."
Oh well, fine. I could just drop my stuff off at Whale Jo's room and we could be on our way.
Up at Whale Jo's room, he brought out the cash he had won . . . a couple stacks of banded $10k bundles, some bumblebees ($1k chips at Wynn are yellow and I heard one pit boss call it this), and various other chips.
I grabbed a few bills out of my money envelope and we hit the floor. First stop was going to be the $5 VP machines. I had no doubt my special machine would remember me.
Getting off the elevators, I knew that I could find that magic bank of 9/6 JOB machines with my eyes closed. Take a left, walk along the corridor closest to the wall, take a right at the main thoroughfare, then a left when you hear the Top Gun Machines, continue straight until you hear Wheel of Fortune games singing their song, proceed twelve more paces and take a seat . . . .
We decided to pool our money together and split any profits. $400 went in.
Nothing came out.
Oh, sure, I get it, the machines wanted to play hard to get. I was cool with that.
Um, is that anyway to treat your favorite button pusher?
We switched machines.
