Only a hour flight away from Las Vegas we visit frequently, sometimes once a month. I'll be sharing our trip reports, tips on making the most of your stay in Vegas, reviews of restaurants and shows we have seen, along with my thoughts related to our favorite place to get away from it all.

Halloween Party in Las Vegas!

You might think I would be tired of going to Las Vegas as this year my trips have been so frequent, but there's alway something new and exciting to do and so many friends to meet up with, that I'm always excited to go to Vegas for my vacations!
My flight out of San Jose was on time and an hour and 10 minutes later I was in Vegas where my Cosmopolitan Escalade driver was waiting for me. A few minutes after arriving at Cosmo the VIP lounge had checked me into my requested room type the studio terrace.
I prefer this type of room over the one bedroom terrace due to the bath being in the entrance of the room instead of looking out over the strip and letting morning light in through the shutters. However many times I forget to remind my host that I want to be downgraded and end up in the one bedroom terrace instead.

I quickly unpacked and made my way into the casino where I found and played the new Batman, Dark Knight game! I was sorry I found it, LOL! Pays were low and features hard to come by but I'll try it again on a future trip just in case I was just unlucky that session.
I played a few other games and was losing so I decided to use some of my free play in Plants VS Zombies. I first played this game in early summer and each trip since have had some great bonuses, so while it can be difficult to bonus at times on this game so far they have paid well so this is becoming one of my favorite new games. If you want to see the bonus I got here you go:

It felt great to have such a nice bonus and get back the money I had lost on the previous games.
It was time to meet my friend Claudia who lives in Vegas and have dinner at Cosmopolitan's Wicked Spoon Buffet. Claudia had her Mom with her who recently moved to Vegas, along with her Aunt and her friend Monica who were visiting from New Jersey.  I forgot to take a photo of all of us together darn it! Claudia's Mom, Aunt and friend Monica were so sweet, and it was fun to eat dinner with them!
The best dish on the buffet was made to order and it's the dish that has the shrimp in it below. While I only had them add shrimp to mine, there's lots more items you can add while they cook it up in front of you at one of the buffet stations.
Desserts are always good at Wicked Buffet!
After dinner it was time to gamble. Claudia's Mom, Aunt and friend went off to play some slots while Claudia and I pooled our money for some joint slot play!
Claudia and I had lots of fun and played several games. I was recording our bonuses and forgot to take photos. Here's some links on my youtube channel to see what we were playing and winning on if you are curious.

After Claudia left to return home, I had some wins on Lightning Link. You can check that video out at this link: Lightning Link is a must play for me very trip ever since I hit the Major twice playing it at Palazzo months ago.
I found the new game Cher Live and played the game but was unimpressed so far. If you want to see some of my live play on this new game here's the link:
I like the new Lock it Link slot game that is a clone of Lightning Link. Unfortunately I haven't had any big wins on it yet though I've witness other slot players doing well.
I decided to play some Wonder 4 Jackpots and had a couple nice wins on it.
I didn't win the previous month when I drew Crazy Money Deluxe as one of the games to play from my Facebook Suggestion Double or Nothing Slot Machine Event but I had some fun on it this trip. If you want to participate in future Facebook events for my slot channel like my page at this Facebook URL:
Link to video of Crazy Money Deluxe if you are curious about this game.
I played a bit of Buffalo Gold and had a couple decent bonuses.
I've never cared for the Buffalo games that much but as you will see at the end of this trip report, I love Buffalo Gold and Buffalo Grand now, LOL!
I played long and hard tonight staying up until 5am so even though I had plenty of wins I stayed too late at the slots and went to bed down for the day. The game below that I won $200.00 on plays a lot like my old favorite Triple Cheeseburger Deluxe game in the bonus. It's called Triple Golden Cherries with Sprinkles on Top.
