This Chatter'er recently cashed in his points for four free nights at The Mirage (which includes the resort fee!!), tickets to Cirque du Soleil's LOVE and Zarkana, a $100 dining credit, and two Bellagio buffet passes. That's not bad for a few hours of messing around on the computer, and certainly better than having to risk thousands of dollars at the tables to get those types of comps.
The rewards are endless with more seemingly being added everyday: free hotel rooms, room upgrades, show tickets, dining credits, special events, and bottle service are all available for the right amount of loyalty points.
In the same aspect that you wouldn't expect a platinum or diamond players club status to happen overnight playing at the casino, the same logic applies with myVEGAS. It takes some effort and time to build up enough loyalty points to get some "good" comps, but in this writer's opinion, it's well worth it, especially if you already play any type of games online. And, if you feel the process is moving too slowly, there are numerous groups on Facebook dedicated to helping you devise strategy and gather chips/loyalty points faster.
We were skeptical at first as this seemed too good to be true, but MGM Resorts has ramped up this promotion, touting it all over Twitter, Facebook, and casino homepages. Once we finally bit the bullet and cashed in, everything worked like clockwork, with no issues, or complaints. Having said that, MGM Resorts is currently still refining the game which has resulted in some rule changes, the most important being the limit of three rewards per MLife member in a 30-day window. This still allows for a hotel night, show tickets, and a dinning credit per visit... which isn't too shabby!
With constant reductions in players club benefits, and the impossibility of maintaining a players club by the casual gambler, myVEGAS is a nice way to have a little fun and earn real benefits. If you are planning a trip to Vegas in the future this is a must as you can build up rewards and really treat yourself to that suite you've always wanted, or the VIP bottle service!
