One day there was a group of friends that had just gotten out of college and decided to go to Las Vegas to celebrate all together. They all went to Las Vegas on a saturday and once they got there and settled in they all met up in the Caesars Palace Casino to go and play some games. We all walked around the casino for a while until we found a game and picked to play BlackJack. Once we won a few games we moved on and played a bit of Poker and played a while of Roulette, we finished playing the games and got out of the Caesars Palace and went to the Circus Circus hotel and resort. When we went in we decided to play a game and won five hundred dollars. Once we won the money we had to put the money in the safe which was back in our hotel room so we decided to build a machine that went all the way to the room and got the money in the safe because we wanted to store all of our money from the games.
