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.


Change On Many Fronts

Whew… What a whirlwind!

The folks at PlayStudios have been busy on many fronts:

  • Mobile MyVegas
  • Mobile BlackJack
  • Facebook Game
  • Shaq-tastic new games and challenges

There are puzzles and challenges, galore… and tons of new games on the various different versions… as well as new Mobile MyVegas Strip Challenges, and new ways to collect Chips for Mobile BlackJack.

And… that you can use MORE than 3 myVEGAS Rewards? In addition  to the MGM property rewards, you can enjoy rewards from Wolfgang Puck, Las Vegas Monorail, Station Casinos, House of Blues Las Vegas, & more! (Stores, restaurants and attractions that are not part of MGM Resorts, but partners.)  It is important to check the individual details on the Usage Limitations details on the Rewards Browser.

Here, at LetTheChipsFall, we’ve been working on updating our website layout, Level Data, information, and trying to keep up with the changes!

Good luck, in whatever version of MyVegas, you play!



Two New MyVegas Games

A busy week for the MyVegas / Playstudios folk, as they unveiled ‘Around The World In 80 Plays’ on the Mobile App, and ‘The Misadventures of Sheerluck Hound’ on the Facebook Version.

Sheerluck Hound MyVegas Game - Let The Chips Fall

The Misadventures of Sheerluck Hound

This is a five reel Slot Game, with icons based on the characters of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes books. (Sheerluck Hound, evil genius Professor Meowiarti, Doctor Wheaten, Miss Adler, pistol, smoking pipe, deerstalker hat, magnifying glass… as well as wild icons and more.

As you collect the ‘Investigate Bonus’ Paw icons, you collect paws in the magnifying glass handle, at the bottom of the reel area.  Turn all the 16 paws to gold, and you enter the Bonus Game round.

The Bonus Game is a ‘find the object’ style of game, where you are given a limited amount of time to find six items in the picture, which are ‘hiding in plain sight.’

Sheerluck Hound - MyVegas Challenge - Let The Chips Fall

In the image above, you need to find the six items listed at the bottom of the picture… (dagger, burlap sack, lock, rope, wood pile and shamrock.)  (FYI… If you close the game and restart it, the items change.)

If you do not find all the items, you have to collect gold paws again, in order to have a chance to re-play the scene again, with new items.

As you successfully progress through each of these ‘crime scenes’, there are clues, which the characters use to try to solve the ‘crimes’ that nefarious evil genius Meowiarti, has committed.

Once you get through ALL the different scenes, you have to ‘solve’ where Miss Adler is, and when you guess right, there is a Bonus Reward of Chips.


Around The World In 80 Plays

The ‘Around The World In 80 Plays’ Game is a Mobile version of the Facebook Game.

Like the Sheerluck Hound game, it is a ‘find the object’ style of game, where you are given a limited amount of time to find objects in the picture, which are ‘hiding in plain sight.’

The character tiles in this game (not surprisingly) are based on Jules Verne’s “Around the World In 80 Days” with the familiar characters of Mr. Fogg, Passepartout, Detective Fix and Ms. Aouda… and other icons from the ’80 Days’ theme… passports, telescopes, compass, and sextant, as well as Travel icons.  Not sure why, but the main character in the game is a lady not in the book.

The premise is to travel around the globe, in 80 days or less.  The journey starts (and ends) in England, and goes to destinations in Africa, India, Japan and Spain.

The game starts in the regular spinning reels game, where you collect Bonus Travel icons, representing transportation appropriate for that portion of the journey… boat, train, plane, hot air balloon and (OF COURSE) elephant. #DUH (In the image below, the BOAT BONUS icon can be seen at the bottom left.)

Around The World In 80 Plays - Mobile - Let The Chips Fall

At each of the five destinations, there is a bonus screen, with a “find the mystery objects in the picture” bonus round.

The object is to find six objects from the list, in the quickest amount of time.  During the challenge, at the bottom left  of the screen, the remaining days count down.  You can gauge, depending on how long it takes to find the items, whether you want to keep your results, or retry that leg of the challenge.  You also get varying amounts of free spins, based on how quickly you complete the challenge.

It is great that the folks at PlayStudios continue to develop and tweak games and are open to feedback.  THAT is a big part of what is making MyVegas continue to thrive, and be successful. (Apart from the rewards, of course)

Good luck !!!

Bet Rock N’ Roll

Play Studios’ new mobile game Bet Rock n’ Roll launched last week on Android and iOS.

This is a new version of the original FB game ‘BetRock’ with an added bonus round.

The folks at MyVegas were disappointed BetRock didn’t include an extra bonus round, when they launched the game, last year on Facebook…  so they added one in for the mobile game Bet Rock N’ Roll.

Good luck !!!


The folks at MyVegas added another Slot Game to Facebook MyVegas last weekend.  It is Pandarama, and for the next while (until Tuesday, April 8th at midnight) there are Double XP Points when you play it.

Now… to gain access to the game, you either have to either invite three Facebook friends (who aren’t already in your MyVegas friends group) or buy Chips.

Pandarama is played on the Facebook version of MyVegas. It is a five reel Slot Game, with three Bonus Games.

Pandarama - MyVegas game on Facebook | Let The Chips Fall |

As always with MyVegas Games, the tiles and characters match the theme of the game… and as the Panda’s in this game are crime-fighting superheroes, the tiles are comprised of Pandas, Gator Villains, Crab Robots, Police cars, handcuffs, Polar Bear Chief of Police, money bags and such.  You can consult the game’s PAYS table, to find out all the different winning combinations.

Just above the reels, near the top of the Game field, you can see there are three sections: Gator Raid, FreeSpin and Mad Crab.

Each of these Bonus Games is triggered by collecting the appropriate number of winning tiles to add an icon to each of the sections.  When you collect three icons in a section, you get to play the Bonus Game associated with that section.

Gator Raid is a Panda, fighting against a bank-robbing Gator.  After you press the BATTLE button, whoever captures the other in their “bubble ray”, gets to choose two money bags of Bonus Chips, from those strewn around the crime scene.  There are twelve bags of Bonus Chips, and depending on the game you choose to play, there are varying numbers of rounds.  At the end of the Bonus, depending on how many rounds you’ve won against the Gator, you can choose whether you want to play a final “All or Nothing” round, or not.. wagering all the Bonus Chips you have collected to that point, against all the Gator collected, in an ALL or NOTHING final game.

The Free Spin Bonus is a bunch of free spins (Not much to explain there) !!!

The Mad Crab Bonus Game is a robotic Crab, “terrorizing the city” that our three Panda heroes have to defeat, pressing the BATTLE button, and collecting Bonus Chips in each turn, until a “Collect” plate comes up, and the Bonus Game comes to an end. (And, of course, your Pandas defeat the robot.)

It is great that the MyVegas folks are continuing to produce new games for the FB Version and add games to the Mobile App… but (for myself) I prefer a faster pace of Bonus Game, and the Gator Raid Bonus Game to me, was (after a few rounds) kinda clunky, and slow.  The Mad Crab Bonus Game was better, and similar to the Luxor’s Sphinx-Ray Bonus or Pirate’s Cove’s Caribbean Gold Bonus.  But having said that, I don’t know that I am necessarily the Target Market for this kind of game… I personally prefer something faster and more straight-forward like Studio City… and a lot of my friends find that too boring… so great that PlayStudios are continuing to develop and create different games, so there is something for everyone !!!

Good luck !
