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.
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.
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.
Hoppy Easter MyVegas Challenge
There is an EGG-citing Challenge on Facebook MyVegas, for the next dozen days… It is the Hoppy Easter Challenge.
Over the coming days (until April 20th) as you play Slot Games on the MyVegas Facebook version, you automatically collect different eggs towards the number the Challenge requires. When you get them all, you get to scratch a bonus card to win Chips.
Work through all the Scratch Cards for each day, and you get a Loyalty Point Completion Bonus.
(I have to say, it seems to be easier for early level MyVegas players to complete each day’s Challenge, than for those playing the higher levels… #JustSayin)
Have a hoppy Easter !!!
Good luck !!!
12 Days Of Holiday Challenges
From December 19th through December 30th, the folks at MyVegas have set up a series of daily challenges and bonus rewards, called the 12 Days of Holiday Challenges.
Play any slot game, and you automatically collect tokens. (Same as previous Bonus Games) The tokens have a different Christmas-related theme for each day… Ornaments, Stockings, etc.
When you collect all the game pieces, you are awarded a scratch card. There seems to be three cards each day, with increasing Playing Chip values and multiplier bonuses for each, depending on the Game Level you have achieved.
As with any scratch card, you select squares on the card by clicking on them, and behind each square is a chip amount. Keep scratching until you have found three matching amounts, and that is the amount of Bonus Chips you receive !!!
If you complete all three scratch cards within 24 hours, you are awarded Loyalty Points as a completion bonus.
Beyond this, I don’t think I can tell you much, other than to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and all the best for a happy, healthy New Year !!!
And, of course, the obligatory… Good luck !!!
