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!

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.

 

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 !!!
