Same with supermarkets. Sell something cheaply, you go in to buy it and end up spending loads of $$$ on other things.

It's taken me a week to get around 5500 points and that's from playing now and again.

Not being that local to LV, I would end up staying a few nights so if I were to get a one night redemption at say the Bellagio, I would most probably end up staying there for a couple more paid nights because of that, spend in their casino etc.
Yeah, I'm sure it brings in tourist business. There's also that eternal attempt to sell you horribly overpriced chips that I suspect sucks some gamblers in.

Haha Loren, you are probably right, but there's enough methods floating around that you usually don't need to buy chips. I easily average over 100k in chips a day now...doesn't seem to last very long though.

Buying chips is far more expensive than the benefits you can get from the loyalty points. I can't imagine buying points. However, I'm sure some slot addicts do.

The tips file on the group says that until you're IIRC level 58 your best bet is 200 at a time--I've been letting it autoplay most of the day and I still have chips left! I've made over 3000 loyalty points also.

I got on this game 5 days ago and have already racked up over 17,000 LPs and am level 32 with 84k reds.

Here is my simple guide:
- Join the MVFD group and add as many people as possible while following the rules
- Click on all links in the group area that give free points
- Wait until you have about 4k-5k in chips stacked up
- Go into black jack and bet all 5k, if you win bet the 10k, if you lose go rack up 5k on the links again
- Now with just 2 bets hopefully you have 20k in chips, now go play the excalibur game on 300 a spin and you will rack up points
- If you tap out start over, if you get over 75k move to 600 a spin

I've tried playing Black Jack and end up losing 75% of the time.
Amazing how many 10s/picture cards there are in a pack of cards.
If I stick on 17-19, 99.999% of the time, the dealer gets 20 or 21.
If I have 12+, 99.9999% of the time I will bust with 22+.

Sometimes I do Ok on the slots - other times you win nothing or the odd 20 for a bet of 300.

Where are you joining this MyVegas Friends? And does that mean that I have to add a bunch of strangers to my FB account? So far I have racked up over 70,000 loyalty points...will easily clear 100,000 by my next trip to Vegas.

I agree, would be nice to get free stuff, but I just came across this post and am intrigued by some of the offers. For instance, I can get 2 nights at Aria for 200,000 points, which would cost $160. $80 a night for Aria seems like a great deal. I'm going in a few weeks, so I'd rather just pay the $160 and book the room than all the time it would take to win the points.

Has anyone redeemed points for a room? Just want to make sure this is legit.

Inside Facebook. Search for "MyVegas Friends" and "MyVegas Friends and Deals" groups in Facebook. You have to be approved to join - they will usually approve within just a few minutes.

You do not have to add any strangers as friends to your Facebook account, but you will receive more points each day if you do (50 points a day for each friend that sends you a gift, and a multiplier on your daily spin based on how many friends you have). There are threads on both the groups above with people who would like to be added as friends in the game. If you friend these people you can put them on your 'restricted' list so that they cannot see any of your info or status updates. You can turn off seeing their 'newsfeed' so you will not see their updates, either.

I have not redeemed for a room, but did redeem for $260 worth of food during my trip before Christmas. Definitely legit - posters all over the participating casinos promoting MyVegas, and I even saw a billboard on Sahara near I-15. Keep in mind with the room rewards they are all for Sun-Thurs only.

I can't imagine what you are looking at. Are you perhaps mixing up the chips and the loyalty points?

I see no offer that costs $160. $99 gets 202,013 chips and 9000 points, $199 gets 600,000 chips and 20,000 points. Buying chips is a *MAJOR* ripoff.

Just been looking at some of the rooms and, the Luxor for example, only offers the rooms Sun-Thurs so no good for a weekend stay.
THe more expensive rooms seem to be fine except for the odd blackout date that has already gone or mut be during an Expo or something.

Yeah, that's what I have heard others saying--the good dates are going to be blacked out. They're only making available inventory they don't expect to sell otherwise.

I think the point of this game is to give out stuff they can't sell. I mean if they give out stuff they can sell, they're gonna end up losing money. This model works for now, and I rather they keep a working model, then one that ends in 6 months.

Yeah, I would likewise prefer this. So long as you have an extra screen to throw it on it doesn't really take that much time--mostly it just sits there running. When I notice that it needs some prodding I do so.
