MyVEGAS By The Numbers

September 12, 2014 at 12:07 PM | by | Comments (15)

Yowza, MyVEGAS sure is popular. Any time we have news, there's a flood of comments, both good and bad. MyVEGAS is obviously polarizing and the freemium (free to play, but you can also buy chips to play more) social game by PlayStudios only continues to grow.

Often as a company expands, some moves are meant to attract more customers. Simultaneously, those moves may sometimes alienate the existing base. This happens with music†all the time (i.e., "I used to like that band until they sold out/changed their sound/got all popular.") Right now, MyVEGAS is the big dog. Between MyVEGAS on Facebook and the MyVEGAS Slots mobile app, it's one of the top grossing social games. MyVEGAS isnít just popular, however. Itís addictive. The average MyVEGAS player logs onto the game three times a day for somewhere between 45 to 90 minutes.

Polaroid Museum Drops Admission Fee Altogether

Where: 3545 Las Vegas Blvd. S. #7 [map], 89109
September 10, 2014 at 7:08 PM | by | Comments (4)

While art fans continue to duke it out over how much Sin City needs/deserves/should have/should support museums, lovers of fine art can still visit Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art (about to get Fabergť with it) and see fun pieces at CityCenter, Wynn Las Vegas and The Cosmopolitan, among other spots on The Strip. Another fun art attraction is the Polaroid Museum above the Polaroid store at The Linq.

Admission will now only cost you a trip up the stairs (or elevator) as the price has gone from $16 to $5 to free, as spotted by our friends at Vital Vegas.

A MyVEGAS Mystery? Weíve Cracked It And The News Isnít Good

August 14, 2014 at 2:14 PM | by | Comments (31)

Now two years old, social casino game MyVEGAS continues to add new users, new rewards, and new mini-games. Earlier this month, PlayStudios unveiled its latest slot title, China Mystery. New ways to earn those valuable loyalty points are always welcomed, but we were even more excited by the addition of new dining rewards. As we took a closer look at whatís new, however, we were left wishing we could turn back the clock.

Anytime anyone criticizes MyVEGAS they are inevitably met with the same response, so letís get it out of the way. Yes, the game is free. Itís been possible to rack up free hotel stays, dining vouchers, shopping credits, show tickets, and more, all from day one without spending a dime. For those who joined early on, itís been a great ride. Many of us here at VegasChatter are MyVEGAS players and this writer alone has racked up at least $1,000 in rewards. Thatís the good, on to the bad.

Get Face 2 Face at The Cosmo

Where: 3708 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
August 4, 2014 at 9:28 PM | by | Comments (3)

Completed paintings from Face 2 Face at P3Studio.

Casino visits can be personal or impersonal experiences, depending on how you attempt to craft your time. At places like Cosmopolitan, you can grab a slice from Secret Pizza and simply go about your business or you can chat up your pizza peddler, make friends in the line and bring them and your meal down the hall to the common area outside P3Studio.

If you head over to the Cosmo this week, and we really think you should, make sure you visit P3Studio for a highly personal experience youíre likely not to get anywhere else in the world. Well-respected artists from the local Las Vegas art world, Todd Duane Miller and JW Caldwell, are P3ís current artists-in-residence. The duo has created Face 2 Face, a truly interactive and immersive photography and fine art mashup.

Checking Back In On MyVEGAS

July 11, 2014 at 3:17 PM | by | Comments (19)

We've been hoping MGM Resorts' smash hit social media experiment, myVEGAS, might add new partners and new rewards and we've been excited to see the steady addition of new experiences.

MyVEGAS brought new rewards on board for Vdara, the non-gambling, non-smoking hotel in CityCenter. This writer was especially happy to see a spa discount offering a 80-minute service for the price of a 50-minute booking. Hopefully, this will spur similar rewards at other properties and, maybe, a complete freebie at a higher loyalty point tier in the future.

Here's How To Get A Free High Roller Ticket At A Caesars Casino

July 8, 2014 at 12:07 PM | by | Comments (11)

Being the world's largest†just doesn't mean the same thing it used to.

Caesars Entertainment has taken to the casino in an effort to drum up business for the High Roller observation wheel. Last week, Flamingo, The Quad and other Caesars casinos began issuing free High Roller tickets to any player that received a suited 21 at the blackjack tables. That means any time the first two cards dealt to a player are†an Ace and a 10, Jack, Queen or King in the same suit (diamonds, hearts, clubs, spades), the player would receive a coupon for a free ticket to ride. The coupons†are non-transferable (in theory, not so much in application) so whoever the ticket is†made out to has to use it.

Thursdays Are Movie Night At Downtown's Container Park

Where: 707 Fremont Street [map], 89101
June 4, 2014 at 6:01 PM | by | Comments (4)

Downtown's Container Park is home to restaurants, bars, shopping, a playground, and even a fire-spewing preying mantis. Now, the DCP (we all call it that, right?) wants to add drive-in movie theater to the roster. Well, minus the drive-in part including the cars and those speaker boxes that attach to the window, too. More like a pedestrian-in theater, we guess. Where were we?

Oh, yes. If you haven't heard yet, Thursdays have become Movie Night at Container Park. Held under the stars beginning at 9 p.m., a limited number of blankets and outdoor chairs are even available on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests, however, are free to BYOB(lankets) and chairs, if they want to ensure they have 'em.

The weekly lineup is as follows:

At The Cosmopolitan, Breakfast At Piffany's Is Free And That's Just Crazy

June 2, 2014 at 10:47 PM | by | Comments (2)

Tucked away behind the many doors of Rose.Rabbit.Lie. at The Cosmopolitan is The Study. A room that easily seems to have been transported from any number of stately manors across the pond. That is, however, until the magic dragon and his dog show up. Then, you're pretty sure you're in a room transported from any number of stately manors across Tim Burton's filmography.

It's in this intimate venue where you'll find the best free Vegas attraction on The Strip, Breakfast at Piffany's. Offered at midnight Wednesday through Saturday, the late-night production is like knowing in advance when that hilarious drunk guy is going to climb atop the bar and cause a spectacle. Except, the guy's not drunk. He's a dragon. With a chihuahua.
