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.


Rewards Redemption Policy From PlayStudios

There was originally a post, then that disappeared and there was ANOTHER post.

That ALSO has disappeared…

And I am now going to revise a link to the PlayStudios Support Page, because as the number of Rewards Partners expands, there are seemingly different rules and numbers applicable.  (It makes sense, and again, I’m just trying to help… I am not affiliated with MyVegas or PlayStudios… I’m just trying to help!)

Anyway… here are the links:

Good luck in MyVegas… and May the Redemptions be Ever in Your Favor!!


Keeping Track

There are three game elements in the MyVegas game on Facebook, that are important to understand.

MyVegas Game Elements - LetTheChipsFall.comOn the left side is a chip icon, and your current available chips that you have, to bet. (6,402)

(If you click on this section, there is a link to buy more chips, but we’ve already covered my opinions on that in a different section… Play for fun, not because you feel compelled to.)

In the middle is a number icon, which indicates the current VIP Level you are at. (3)

To the right of this number, is a progress bar, indicating that I have collected 4,260 VIP Points* and I will get to the next level at 5,000 points.

Every time you place a bet, you earn VIP points.  Each VIP Level unlocks games, rewards, expanded betting or spinning options, and more.

*VIP Points are equivalent to the number of chips bet.

(If you click on this section, a pop up window gives you know what benefit you will receive, once you achieve the next VIP Level.)

On the right hand side is a gold coin and the number of Loyalty Points earned. (190)

These points are accumulated through game play, but are the “points” you use to earn the real-world MGM Resorts rewards.

You earn Loyalty Points through game play, leveling up, interacting with friends, and more.

The Rewards that the MyVegas Loyalty Points can get you, change frequently… and (honestly) seem to vary… sometimes dramatically.

Best thing to do is to check out the MyVegas Rewards online.


So, play on, and enjoy !!!
