I am lucky to score the food ones when I did.
They are definitely cutting back on the payout ratios of the game. I lost 300,000 chips very quickly last night, betting 1,500 per spin.

My big issue is the lack of rewards. Food ones? Not anymore.

Really? The food ones have dried up or are people just grabbing them & then get sold out.
Wow--you burned through a lot of chips & the bummer is I am now being penalized for moving up...takes a lot more to get LP's & it might be my imagination but the hotels aren't paying as much. I finally build the MGM & it paid 30. what???
Well it is a good thing I got my two big meals this past weekend as I have a feeling that the next time I go there won't be many rewards.

I thought the MGM paid LPs rather than chips.

I do agree there has been a major nerf to chip collection, though.

I suspect there are people LIVING in Vegas on the free meals from this game. I know they are supposed to limit it to 3 redemption a month but that doesn't stop people from getting new accounts.

But you have to link it to your M-life card. Casino cards require you to show ID and they're not going to give you multiple accounts--if you try to apply for one that you already have they just issue new cards for the old account instead.

Ya, you can't play multiple accounts because it gets linked to your MLife card, I believe if they catch you trying to redeem multiple accounts that all accounts get banned.

I am sure there are many people living there & scooping up. The 3 redemption thing isn't in effect yet. There are ways around it.
I will have to check but I don't think the MGM paid me in LP's!! whatever...the only game that penalizes you the more that you play.

Looks like they put some huge restrictions on the sharing of links (only 20 then it expires). Too bad I didn't get in on this a little earlier. Still trying it out tonight but probably wont get that far.

Yeah...it is kind of like the old pyramid schemes of many years ago....only the people that got in at the beginning stand to profit. I noticed that sometimes a hotel will pay in LP's & sometimes chips. And sometimes the same hotel will pay 50 chips or 2000. huh? Anyway, most of the fun is out of it for me now that I have to watch my chips so carefully as they are not easily replenished. I might as well be playing with real money at a real slot if I have to do that!!

I mean its free (assuming you don't "buy" chips) so I can't complain. But I'm just kicking myself for not getting on it earlier!

So I take it your Facebook user name doesn't have to match your mlife name?

Just had my daily wheel spin and it stopped in the middle of 3500. Then suddenly jumped to the middle of the next segment that was for 400!

I had to show ID when redeeming my rewards. I would think it does have to match.

From what I've gathered, you can play under a 'fake/secondary' facebook name, but to redeem a prize you'll have to link it to your M life rewards account (or create one) and show ID, depending on the reward. So eventually you'll have to provide your real name and have an M life account, and they get linked together.

Yes, I understand that your mlife account has to be in your true name.

I asked because mikeef opened another facebook account (not in his full name) to use with mlife. As you explained all that is required is that FB account is linked to a true mlife account.
