Upon arriving in Los Vargas, Sam and the MC are greeted at the entrance to the Hotel/Casino by Larry and two other guests. It's rather awkward, but all parties agree to focus on having a good time.
Such a good time is had, in fact, that a time skip occurs, jumping to the second to last day of game time, with the MC waking up blearily in their hotel room.
At this point, an encounter occurs.
Of note is that there's $120~ in the room near the bed, which can be used to help get the MC restarted financially, if necessary, at the casino.
