A MyVEGAS Stay At Red Rock Resort

Where: 11011 West Charleston Boulevard [map], 89135
December 12, 2014 at 12:34 PM | by | Comments (3)

Way back in September MyVEGAS started offering rewards at various Station Casinos giving Las Vegas locals midweek hotel rooms for a staycation. For me, the rewards are a good excuse to check out new and different hotel rooms I normally wouldn't visit. Most recently, I drove down the street to my local casino, Red Rock Resort, to see how things were from a guest point of view.

To lend some background, I visit Red Rock Resort once or twice a week so I know the property pretty well. Most of the time, I park near the sportsbook which is on the opposite side of the property from the hotel entrance. For whatever reason on my visit to Red Rock Resort as a hotel guest, I never even made it to the sportsbook. Being on the hotel side of things is almost being in a different casino and that was awesome.

At Palms, A Burt Reynolds Auction, But A Free Viewing First

Where: 4321 Flamingo Road [map], 89103
December 10, 2014 at 12:23 PM | by | Comments (2)

Burt Reynolds says he's not broke, he just doesn't have "use nor room" for some 600 personal items set to go on auction at the Palms tomorrow and Friday, December 11-12.

This week's auction is already making headlines, but probably not in the way the actor would have wished. He's felt compelled to publicly deny being in serious final need while publications have not held back in their descriptions of the event, from Vocativ.com heralding it as Reynolds "personal garbage fire sale" to Gawker terming the items up for bid as "insane garbage." Starting to see a theme? If you're in need of a good laugh, you should click on both of those hyperlinks as I dare you not to LOL at some of the commentary.

How To Play, And Win, The Vegas Timeshare Game

December 4, 2014 at 2:55 PM | by | Comments (16)

Timeshares are all over Vegas, often hidden in plain sight among and around the massive towers owned by the casinos. Places like Elara, Desert Rose, Flamingo Hilton, Tahiti Village, and Club de Soleil go largely unnoticed by most, all while making a sizable contribution to the annual number of visitors to the city.

Timeshares get a bad rap for good reason, but that will never stop people from buying in. Offers for freebies bring them in the door. High pressure sales tactics close the deal. Those that donít commit walk away with complimentary tickets, meals or cash. If you have a few hours to spare and youíre strong enough to resist the most hardened sales pros in Vegas, you, too, can beat the timeshare game.

A VegasChatter Reader Toasts Banger Brewing's Behind-The-Scenes Tour

Where: 450 Fremont Street, Suite 135 [map], 89101

VegasChatter reader @youstayclassyvegas staying classy at downtown's Banger Brewing.

Downtown Vegas tends to put it all out there. Want a free show? Look up at the five-football-fields long Fremont Street Experience canopy. Want to zipline? Just head to the 12-story-tall slot machine.

That's not to say, however, that there are no hidden gems to uncover. VegasChatter member @youstayclassyvegas stopped by downtown's Neonopolis recently to experience a not-so-widely known, behind-the-scenes tour of Banger Brewing. Here's his experience, in his own words:

Blue Man Group Processional No More

Where: 3770 S. Las Vegas Blvd. [map], 89109
September 23, 2014 at 6:41 PM | by | Comments (5)

What was once one of our favorite free attractions in Las Vegas has now gone the way of the Sirens show at TI and this fact has us feeling a little blue. The Blue Man Group processional that used to wind its way through Monte Carlo has run its course. According to a hotel official, the last procession took place less than two weeks ago.

About 40 minutes before the first show of the night, a procession of the show's musical props, robots and custom-built, light-up vehicles used to wind its way through the casino floor, stopping people in their tracks. The light spectacle was a great promotional opportunity to get the word out about the show so guests milling about who may have seen posters, marquees or other imagery finally had a clue what the show was actually all about.

MyVEGAS By The Numbers

September 12, 2014 at 12:07 PM | by | Comments (16)

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 (33)

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.
