If you're Bronze or higher with BA you can select seats up to a week in advance, so can get a bulkhead end-of-row for nowt. Now that's value!

Was thinking of going out for the Bally's Circuit this month but hotel prices for the second half of March are insane. Someone sayed it might be because of Spring Break?

'March Madness' is at somepoint in the month, too.

Get yourself on the Virgin Express, Chompy. Can nearly always get premium for £8-900, and it's the business.

No, but know lots of people have, and all speak highly of it other than location.

Delano is all suites, and just a separate tower to the rest of MB.

If it was centre strip, it would be same price as Bellagio/Aria.

Loads of good food options at all pricepoints, and it doesn't take long to get to centre strip anyway.

I've booked an extra 3 days on the back of my trip there in case Fury goes ahead on the 18th, and a week there in December, too.

Prices have gone through the floor thanks to Coronapanic.

BA are offering free switches in dates between now and March 16 because of it, which is a bonus. Means you can book and change to the summer without having to cough up the usual £150.

Mandalay Bay it is.

Stayed at mandalay Bay about 15 years ago. Saw Paul Hayward in a lift and enjoyed pleasantries. Other than that don't remember much except deffo quieter and less raucous than a lot of the more central strip places

Right, think I need to hang around some Corona hotspots so I can get it over with whilst the NHS still works, then sweep up all the low runner bracelet events from my bargain basement presidential suite. 

If anyone sits at my table going to give it the "Yah, not sure it is completely cleared" and give off a few well timed sniffles.

Most of the bets placed so far seem more like hopeful punts rather than value spots

He give you a burst of Love Plus One?

Went to The House Of Blues there on the latest trip. Liked the feel of the casino and the poker room was very laid back.

The room look fine on youtube, so took the slightly cheaper option of Mandalay Bay itself rather than Delano. Got 11 nights with direct flights for the same price as some mug buyers are prepared to pay for upgraded airplane seats. Value is value. Came out about £300 cheaper than staying at HMP The Linq.

Proper airline too. BA. Tal (I think it was him) sayed the Virgin flight is good for a fight, but I prefer the quiter, classy life.

Think you just select it in the app.
It's the subscription level. £15 a month for a metal card, 1% cashback at selected places and HMRC still fee free.
Just about worth the £15.
