One week of myVegas

After 7 days of playing the facebook app myVegas I collected a total of 15010 loyalty points. At the same time I reached a VIP level of 30, which unlocked some of the higher rewards. The virtual Las Vegas strip that is build along the way now inlcudes the Circus Circus, Monte Carlo, The Mirage, NY NY, Excalibur and the Bellagio. All of these give away coins and some even loyalty points every couple of hours. So I'm now able to generate points without playing games.

I was running the app in the background each day using the slot machine outspin and just checking for bonus games and other interaction every now and then. Here is the break down of how I progressed so far:

day 1 - level 14, loyalty points 1940
day 2 - level 19, loyalty points 4400
day 3 - level 21, loyalty points 5900
day 4 - level 23, loyalty points 6810
day 5 - level 24, loyalty points 8310
day 6 - level 28, loyalty points 12770
day 7 - level 30, loyalty points 15010

As you can see I generated about 2000 loyalty points each day depending on how much time I invested. I expect to have a higher return now that the more valuable casinos like the Excalibur and Bellagio are built which give away points directly.

My strategy is to continue to run the Studio City slot in the background as it requires the least interaction. I will keep my bet size small because the VIP level only increased by total coinage played (so it's the same if you bet small or big; you just have to play longer with the small bet) but you will get slightly more loyalty points.

My current VIP level and the 15000 loyalty points would already get me a comp room at the Circus Circus, Monte Carlo or The Mirage or a lot of different food options. I'm going to save my points until I reach at least 150k points which would get me two nights in a Spa Suite at NY NY. Should be done in 9 more weeks max ;-)

Facebook and myVegas for free Las Vegas rewards

I just created a Facebook page for this blog because there is a new App giving away real life rewards for virtual play. Yes, it's true you'll get rewards from Las Vegas casinos like Aria, Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, Mirage, Monte Carlo, NY NY, Luxor, Excalibur and last but not least Circus Circus. The Prices you can get range from a pair of dice to show tickets and suites.
As I said all of this you can get by playing free playmoney games. You don't have to gamble a cent to earn it. Just like playing in Vegas you'll receive Loyalty Points for playing different casino games. Right now they offer different slots and Black Jack. All of these games are played for virtual coins. Don't worry once you run out of coins (it's still casino games so don't expect to win longterm) you either can buy new ones for real money, but you don't have to because you'll receive new coins every day. Actually you can receive new coins every couple of hours by collecting them from your virtual strip that you build will playing aswell.

I guess the actual value is pretty low but just like my play at
it's fun anyway and the free "money" is just the cherry on top.
If you are going to give the myVegas App a try I'd by happy to add my Facebook page to your list and maybe give it a Like, even if it's ugly as hell ;-)
