On the Road to the Marathon - Mesquite Nevada

Being the buffet hound that I am, I knew all about the Virgin River Casino buffet and the fantastic deal they have for breakfast.  Basically you roll in, shell out 6.95 and bam, you got a nice little buffet.  I think the last time I paid $6.95 for a buffet was back in the 90's when I used to hit Vegas.

You might think that they skimp on the quality: no.  Definitely not.  Virgin River clearly hasn't forgotten the lure of a cheap buffet in getting people into their casinos -- and little Mesquite's best buffet was packed as a result.

Shari and I quickly got our fill, including a home made omelet and some nice desserts.  It was really nice not to have to rush and I'll be honest, the food was really good -- especially the omelet.

After eating, we decided to give the chance a food to settle before hitting the road for the final hour (and change) drive to Vegas.  We signed up for the player's club card and each got $5 of free play.

I hit up the Invaders from Planet Moolah.  I've probably sunk several hundred dollars playing this addictive game.  I turned my $5 free play into a little over $30 and cashed out.  I then wandered over to my King Leonidas game.  Faithful readers will remember that I won big in Wendover on this machine.  I put in a fresh $20 bill and the machine looked like it was going to skunk me.  Then all of the sudden I got the special bonus where the jackpot Leonidases show up and bam, another decent win.

We took care of our bathroom issues and took off, glad to make out with a few extra bucks.  Last time I was there I thought the machines were tight, playing out more than $20 and losing it pretty quickly.  I was glad I could get a little bit of revenge.

I am definitely looking forward to checking out Mesquite again.  There are two more casinos there and it definitely has a "Wendover" feel to it.
