I had actually signed up for this trial
Inquiry Begins Into AstraZeneca's Vaccine
but it was halted before any of us in my group got a single dose.

I also got my annual flu vaccine a week or so ago. I don't have any problem with vaccinations I have received them all.

By the way don't ever try to buy a car from https://cars.trovit.com/ almost every valuable car listing on there is fraudulent. I'm in the process of restoring one of my classic cars and I found one like it on there for a fraction of its value - several in fact. Made me wonder, why am I spending thirty grand to do some work on my car when I can buy the whole thing for that on trovit. I thought my car was worth minimum hundred and fifty K, and two hundred fifty K once fully restored. Well, it turns out what they do over there is lift pictures of legitimate listings and then relist the classic cars with absurdly low prices. Inquire, and some bozo tries to direct you to a fake auto shipment / auto escrow site that he just built a few days ago, to lure you into wiring money into some "escrow" where the auto broker claims he will then ship the car to you. Avoid at all costs! Just run a search on the images and you will find the images from almost every listing on trovit was pulled from a legitimate listing where the classic vehicle sold long ago at 5X the price.

As some of you know, we've been in Vegas continuously since very early October. For details come to the TruePassage forum / ask me for the URL via PM. Such a long stay is not unheard of for me, but what is unusual even for me, is that most of it is at one resort.

I think it will be of benefit to others for me to reveal that it does appear that they are comp'ing heavier than usual these days. Perhaps there just aren't as many big players around these days. Granted, my average bet has been over a thousand and I am putting in the hours (not really average four per day, but still some solid hours), nevertheless, the eager willingness of the host to keep extending our stays, fully comp'ed, is not the norm.

Observations:

-Coronavirus measures seem to be adequate - I mean at least, I haven't gotten sick while here and I have been at the tables almost every day. Everyone must wear a mask or shield (thankfully most wear a mask - a shield alone in my opinion is inadequate), and at two out of three of the resorts we have stayed at, there are plexiglass barriers at the tables. We have avoided in-restaurant dining and are doing almost exclusively take-out. I carry alcohol spray for my chips, and my own hand sanitizer.

-Crowds at many of the high end resorts on the Strip are decidedly NOT high end. Lowered room rates (or free rooms for "essential workers") have brought down the caliber of the visitors. This is not just a typical tourist crowd, which would be okay, but a low end crowd in general. We spent a week at a resort in Henderson and that crowd was more typical tourist and not so low end.

-Comps are being offered up freely. We are going on an entire MONTH at one very high end Strip resort (stayed so long that actually had to move suites because of some "Nevada residency" rule). For me to stay at one resort this long and for the comps to still be flowing, is an anomaly. The about 1300 square feet suite we are in at this current resort would be just under a thousand a night at current rack rates.
-They are giving us full RFB (room food beverage) but that's nothing new, what is unusual is that they are comp'ing not only spa, but also spa TIPS, and also even room service tips.
- I asked about promotional chips at the resort we are at now (and have been for almost a month) but they said that was based on the prior 18 months of play and I did not qualify. However, I did get as I recall $400. of promo chips from a different casino about a year ago, and I used to get a lot of promo chips when I played years ago (prior to my decade or so hiatus from gaming).
-We got a 1000 "shopping spree" too via the casino's affiliate stores, and tons of promotional crap that VIP has been giving out. Need an extra suitcase or two just to take the promotional crap all home.

On top of all that, I have won, consistently, at all three resorts. Two of the resorts we already left, so the wins are absolute there - done deals. As for the third resort, of course, anything could happen and the only thing that matters is what I take home with me, but so far looking great. I have not been down on any day of this trip, although I did have one day when I dumped some of my winnings. Will probably go home in a week or so.
So you don't need to lose to get comp'ed - just keep that average bet up there.

Anyway, if you are not afraid of coronavirus which - it would sure be a shame to catch it now when it seems like a viable vaccine is on the horizon - and can put up with the lower end crowd (at most all, but not all casinos - there seems to be at least one exception one Strip casino that is doing a better job of keeping the riff raff out) - you may get a lot for your play right now. The comps are great, but at the end of the day all that matters to me is winning, which, fortunately, has kept up on a consistent basis for me.

Sooooo,

You qualify for over a month of RFB but based on your last 18 months play you don't qualify for promo chips?

In his (their?) fictional universe promo chips are only given to losers as loss rebates at the end of the trip. I guess to bring back on the next trip? Table games players don't get offers that include free chips. Offers certainly aren't mailed since whales hate getting mail so I don't even know how whales would know if they had free chips, which they don't.

Nice job winning every day for a month straight.

As I explained already at the other forum, this casino, which is a major on the Strip and perhaps the nicest most luxurious on the Strip with some of the highest rollers on the Strip, has never given promo chips before except for tournament winnings. They started giving out promo chips based on play, only post-coronavirus reopening. Thatís right though Ė not one of you has ever had a promo chip from this casino, soÖhow would you know? other than to cavil.

I got the exact spreadsheets for how these will be handed out, but I am not getting any promo chips this trip. I have not won any tournaments at this casino. I may be getting some promo chips in the future based on their new program

But letís get right to the heart of things. I won another +5200. today. I confirmed today with my host today that at this casino, this leg of the trip, I have put in some 71 hours of play at a 1200 average, and that my theoretical loss is some seventy grand, but instead, I am up some twenty grand at this moment (at this resort Ė my over all win between the three resorts is some fifty grand for this over month long trip). If I had not had the one day where I spilled earnings, Iíd easily be up a great deal more than twenty grand. And again, this twenty grand is solely what I have won so far at this one resort.

If anyone is willing to put his money where his mouth is, I can confirm that all the following are true:

-I have been in Vegas continuously since very early October.

-I have won Ė net ahead Ė the exact figures as posted at TruePassage Ė at both of the resorts we were at before this one, and am net ahead some additional twenty grand at the moment, representing just the win at this third resort.

-That at this resort as of today, I have put in some 71 hours in play, at a 1200 average, with a theoretical loss of some seventy thousand dollars.

-That I have played almost every single day at all three resorts, pretty much every day other than check in and check out days.

-That all of the suites, room, food, beverage, and spa, have been compíed, to the tune of some fifty thousand dollars of compíed goods and services.

-That I also got a 1000 shopping spree.

Send me a PM at the other forum, I can arrange the wager.

P.S. How about a side bet over that my host asked me for advice on how he might be able to win at casinos.

Otherwise, put a sock in it. Naysayers who either cannot or do not have the cash to back up their twaddle are annoying as huck, like mosquitos biting at me while Iím being hand carried like royalty through the jungle on a safari enjoying my God given privileges.

You've played for 40-50 days straight, have been up every single day, but are up only $50,000 total while wagering over $1,000 on average?

Makes a lot of sense bro.
