MyVegas Slots Mobile Gets A Facelift

Some of you may have noticed a new look to the MyVegas Slots App, on your mobile devices.

Here is a Blog Post from PlayStudios, sharing their plans, and what is in the works…

February 8, 2017

2.0 Is (Almost) Ready to Go

myVEGAS Slots made its mobile debut in November of 2013. It quickly found a loyal audience and shot to the top of the app store charts. In the years since, we’ve continually refreshed the app with a variety of new content – from games to bonus quests. However, the overall look and feel of the myVEGAS experience has remained largely unchanged. Until now! In the weeks ahead, PLAYSTUDIOS will be rolling out a series of major updates, culminating in the official launch of a completely redesigned myVEGAS Slots 2.0. This new version will include:

  1. A myVIP program for our most loyal players,
  2. Additional ways to collect free chips,
  3. A centralized “inbox” for sending and receiving gifts,
  4. A few extra 0’s added to your payouts, bets, and balances, and
  5. A redesigned user interface.

The reasons we are sharing this exciting news now is that beginning today, a small segment of our players – chosen at random – will start to see some of these new features. This process of previewing a major update with only a small group is fairly common practice in the tech world. Google and Facebook do it all the time. It’s a way to safeguard our existing users from anything unforeseen. By rolling these changes out slowly, we can keep a careful eye on how they’re working, collect feedback, and make any final adjustments.

What To Expect

The first two updates – the myVIP program and those extra 0’s – will appear inside the current version of myVEGAS Slots. The myVIP program allows you to, based on your myVIP level, earn extra chips, view special in-game Rewards, and access priority customer support. You increase your myVIP level by accumulating myVIP Points, or MVP’s, and you accumulate MVP’s by spinning the Daily Bonus Wheel, collecting hourly bonuses, and purchasing chip packages in myVEGAS or any of the other PLAYSTUDIOS apps (if you’re Facebook Connected). If you are part of the myVIP Beta Preview group, a special pop-up screen will appear when you launch the game. In addition, the new myVIP icon will be visible at the top left of your screen. As for all the extra 0’s – this doesn’t really have much effect on the game, since everything is increased by the same amount. Your chip balance will increase, and so will your bet amounts and jackpots. The amount of chips in each purchase bundle will increase as well.  The reason for doing this is that it affords us more flexibility with the game and lets us introduce some fun new ways to give away free chips.

Have Questions?

If you don’t see these changes, it means you’re not in the Beta Preview group—yet! There’s no way to manually add yourself, but we’ll be rolling this out to all players over the next several weeks, so you’ll see it soon. If you are one of the players selected to preview these new features and you have questions, start with a visit to our support site where you’ll find some new FAQ’s about myVEGAS 2.0’s increased chip amounts and the new myVIP Program. You can also submit support tickets or visit one of our official myVEGAS Fan Groups. These groups are great sources of community knowledge, and we work very closely with them to ensure that their group admins are well informed.

What Now?

Well, not much. Just keep playing and enjoying myVEGAS. As we approach the official launch of 2.0, we will continue to add new games and other content every couple weeks, just like we always do. And we’ll be sure to let you know when the big day – and the big update – finally arrive. 

MyVegas Slots Mobile Gets A Facelift - LetTheChipsFall.comAnd, on April 20th, it appears to have been released widely.

Burlingame, CA – April 20, 2017 – PLAYSTUDIOS, a developer of top-ranking, free-to-play casino games today announced that it has released a completely redesigned version of its most popular app – myVEGAS Slots. This update introduces a gorgeous new look, more features, and additional opportunities to collect and share free chips.

The myVEGAS Slots product team has been working tirelessly for months, reimagining and polishing every last detail. It is the most significant product update we’ve ever shipped. And we hope our players love all the great new stuff that’s gone into it.”

The new myVEGAS Slots is redefined by a crisp and vibrant look. New functionality makes the games, rewards, and special offers easier to find. A new myVIP program offers additional perks for loyal players, including bonus boosters and special purchase offers. A new inbox feature unifies player communication and allows for more frequent collecting and sharing of free chips. And the Challenges and Journeys have been updated, providing new opportunities to earn even more chips and Loyalty Points.

Collecting Loyalty Points On Android Versus Apple Mobile Devices

For those of you who are regular visitors to this site, you know that I am ALL ABOUT the Loyalty Points.

Collecting Loyalty Points is why I play MyVegas.

As much fun as playing is… my purpose for playing is driven by getting real-life Las Vegas rewards.

Today, I was away from home, and had to wait somewhere, and thought I would play MyVegas on my phone.

My ANDROID phone.

Normally, I collect chips on my phone, but only play on my iPad.

And, when I leveled up, I received the regular Playing Chip bonus… but NO LOYALTY POINTS?!?

And so, I checked, and sure enough… players who play on Android devices get ZILCH for Loyalty Points, when they Level Up.

To me, this was mind-blowing…

Screen shots are below, of the Android and iPad.

Android Versions of MyVegas Games don't offer the same Loyalty Points - LetTheChipsFall.com iPad Versions of MyVegas Games don't offer the same Loyalty Points - LetTheChipsFall.com

If you haven’t caught my drift… by playing on my Android, when I leveled up, I missed out on getting 765 Loyalty Points.

Now, I’m not going to beef, or say I was robbed, or whatever…

I just want to make sure that anyone else… everyone else… out there, who reads this, is aware.

So… All things being equal… if you have a choice, and have the option of collecting Loyalty Points on an Android Versus Apple Mobile Device… I would suggest EVERYONE use the Apple devices, as you will get MORE LOYALTY POINTS.

 

 

POP Slots

Play Studios have, once more, expanded the MyVegas family of apps and games, and added POP Slots, a new mobile game.

POP Slots - New MyVegas Game - LetTheChipsFall.com As with their last offering – Konami, they seem to be inching away from the MyVegas Loyalty Points.

In this game, they offer you the sense of walking around the Las Vegas MGM Resort Casinos… choosing which game you would like to play, and at what machine.  They have even made virtual versions of the casino carpet and decor.

Like the other apps, it is available for both Apple and Android devices, and… (it is VERY important to note, and complete) …your Loyalty Point total is linked, synced (and kept safe) by connecting your profile through Facebook.  (So… DO IT, IMMEDIATELY!)

POP Slots - New MyVegas Game - LetTheChipsFall.comWhen you load the app, you only have access to the MGM Grand Casino.  As you progress, you gain access to the Mirage (and presumably the Excalibur next, as they add properties to the Game.)

As always, you can buy Chips, but they are given free every two hours, in increasing amounts as you progress through the levels… and every 24 hours, you also get a Daily Bonus of Chips.

POP Slots - New MyVegas Game - LetTheChipsFall.comThe games in the casino are similar to the slot games in other MyVegas offerings.  For the MGM Grand Casino, the available games are: MGM Grand Mega Star, Frontier Fortune, Emerald 7’s, Around The World In 80 Plays and Race To Oz.

In the Mirage Casino, the available games are: Mirage, Welcome To Fabulous Betrock, Forbidden 7’s, Jack And The Beanstalk, with Wall Of Khan coming soon.

POP Slots - New MyVegas Game - LetTheChipsFall.comThe ‘feel’ of this game is quite similar to walking around a casino… sitting down… interacting a bit with players around you (through an ’emoji’ interface).  For me, the critical difference was that playing doesn’t necessarily gain you MyVegas Loyalty Points.

When you choose a game to play, you are given a bank of 8 machines that will be partially filled with other players.  They indicate to you the available machines, and the “hottest” machine. 

POP Slots - New MyVegas Game - LetTheChipsFall.comOnce you choose a machine, there is a kind of split screen… where you can see the slot machine you are playing, as well as an overview of the bank of four machines you are sitting at, and the players immediately around you.

To begin, you choose the amount of your bet… (it is initially kept small to maximize play, but increases as you advance through levels.)

There is also an Auto button, that will allow you to spin, and bet and never have to look at the game.

However…

The only way to get MyVegas Loyalty Points (Gold Coins) is to pay attention, because at random intervals, you and the players around you will inflate a purple BONUS “POP” balloon, (see image below) which rises from the bank of machines you are “sitting at”… and if you don’t touch the screen to “pop” the balloon… it just drifts away.  Sometimes the Bonus will be XP Points, sometimes Chips, and sometimes Loyalty Points.

POP Slots - New MyVegas Game - LetTheChipsFall.comThese POP Bonus balloons seem to be the ONLY way that this game adds to your Loyalty Point total.

There was a PlayStudios questionnaire a few months back, and one of the questions was “Would you play MyVegas, even if there was no loyalty incentive program.”  From the increasingly incrementally smaller awards of Loyalty Points, and the fact that you can play this latest game, and (if you aren’t paying attention) not collect ANY Loyalty Points… I’m guessing enough people said “yes”.

The OTHER feature of POP Slots, and one that seems to be evolving, is interacting with, and getting benefits from, those players at the machines “around you”.  You are able to “greet”, “congratulate” and “thank” the players sitting in your bank of machines, when they arrive, when they do well, and when they hit a shared bonus… by tapping on the emojis that appear at the bottom left of the screen.

The shared portion of the Bonus Round starts when any player in your bank of four machines gets 3 ‘FREE SPIN’ icons on their slot machine game screen.  The options that follow are different, depending on the Casino, and the Game being played… but all the active players in your bank of four machines, benefit and play the same Bonus Round.  (It should be noted, that just “sitting” at a machine doesn’t make you eligible for the Bonus Rewards, and that the amount you are betting, determines the amount of your Bonus Reward.)

The POP Slots game is fun, as it has a completely different feel… and more of a “Casino” atmosphere… (as much as you can in the virtual world).  As long as you are aware of how the game works, it is a fun time! 

If you are ONLY playing for Loyalty Points, and don’t have time to pay attention to the games… this one might not be for you.

Good luck!

(Inasmuch as they haven’t said not to.)  And, it should be said, (other than the benefits available to ALL MyVegas players), I receive no special deals, offers or bonuses from the folks at MyVegas, Konami or PlayStudios.

The folks at Play Studios have, again, expanded the MyVegas family of apps and games.  In addition to the Facebook Version of MyVegas, the online MyVegas app, and the MyVegas BlackJack app… there is now also the Konami Slots App.

Like the other apps, it is available for both Apple and Android devices, and… (it is VERY important to note, and complete) …your Loyalty Point total is linked, synced (and kept safe) by connecting your profile through Facebook.  (So… DO IT, IMMEDIATELY!)

Like the other MyVegas apps, this Game is (other than contributing to your Loyalty Point tally) completely independent of other MyVegas games and apps.  You start with 0 XP Points, at Level 1, playing the Konami Slot Game, Lotus Land.  As you progress through Levels, you gain access to the other Konami Slot Games: Spellbound Princess, Lion Festival, Bull Mystery, China Mystery and Masked Ball Nights. (The last two games have the added Bonus of available Jackpots)

As you advance through the Levels, and at 4 hour intervals, you are awarded “SL Tickets“, which you can redeem in the SL Bonus Game. (Basically a big pink Cat slot machine.)  It takes 5 tickets per spin… and the prizes can be rewarded in the form of further SL tickets, XP Points to advance through the Levels faster, Red Playing Chips… or as it happens, sometimes you get nothing!

Once a day, there is a “Daily Spin” Wheel Bonus, where you can win SL Tickets or Red Playing Chips.  As part of this Bonus, there is a daily multiplier, where you can get up to 3 times what you “spin” (providing you play every day.)

And, at various times you may, or may not, be able to watch 30 second video ads, in exchange for Bonus Red Playing Chips. (On this app, the amount of Red Playing Chips you receive varies, as you progress through Game Levels.)

Good luck!

Vegas, Baby!!!

Just got back from a family trip to Las Vegas, in May!

Had a great time with my wife’s family, and had some fabulous experiences… thanks to MyVegas*!

We enjoyed the Zarkana Cirque du Soleil show, and the Mirage and Bellagio Buffets, using MyVegas redemptions.

The rules have changed, so now you can “purchase” multiple items, as long as you don’t redeem more than 3 MGM rewards in any 30 day rolling period.  (Read the fine print)  You have no longer than 90 days of purchase, to redeem any OTHER rewards (if you are taking multiple trips).  (Read the fine print)

There are some limits on how many of any one “item” you can redeem. (Read the fine print)

There is also some very specific fine print on different rewards, regarding black out dates, whether a MGM Resort Hotel stay is required, “get one free when some condition is met”… and more.  (Read the fine print)

It is important to scope out ALL the details, and read ALL the fine print… IN ADVANCE of booking the rewards, to avoid being disappointed, by booking something that isn’t what you thought it was.

(Which is why, I believe, they leave the unavailable rewards up… so you can review the “fine print” and make sure your i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed.)

* For those wondering: I got no undue benefit by being a MyVegas blogger.  I earned my Loyalty Points and sweated out redeeming rewards, checking hourly over several weeks, looking for available redemptions that fit our plans and schedule, just like everyone else has to.
