|Good evening All! Just got back from Reno at the Atlantis for 2 days. Used post card for two freenights(will not be charged against comp) and a free gift-turned out to be a wine tote-2 wine glasses,2 napkins a multipurpose opener(corkscrew,bottle/can opener, knife).
Room was supposed to be on the 8th floor-dolphin tower, but somehow due to the key lock not wanting to accept my key(something about some electical loop not completing somewhere), I ended up with a jaccuzi suite on the 17th floor because they had no other rooms available of what they had originally given me(I hope this happens again next trip).
Played free slot tourny- and got $50.00 credit play. Played Blackjack for 7 hours-started with $150, left with $1300. Probably paid dealers around $300 in tips or blackjacks. Gave back about $200 to quarter wheel of fortune machines. For the rest of the night went to the stage lounge-two good bands this week, Palmore Brothers cover Motown, Santana. Second band,I didn't quite get thier name,but they covered Led Zep, George Thourgood, Rare Earth etc. Three thirty AM comes fast when your having fun.
Pretty much more Blackjack for 12 hours(only $500 in winnings this day) and some slots.
This morning on the way out the door, I stopped and looked at some machine they installed overnight-multi denom game that pays 243 ways. I put in $10 on 2 cent play set up max play on lines played and money and on 1st spin won $825!! Very good end to trip.
Won about $2600 this trip, so I am about even for this year on Reno visits.
Did a quick assesment with my casino host and should be getting my Diamond card for players club soon- This will put me up in the concierge tower for future visits.
26 weekends a year in Reno ain't too bad!!
