Southwest Airlines And The 'Free' Ultimate Vegas Experience

July 21, 2015 at 12:15 PM | by | ()

Lately, lots of folks have been feeling less-than-loved by MyVEGAS...especially for the reduction in awards being offered by MLife (the MGM Resorts loyalty program) and Cirque du Soleil. Well, for one weekend in September, Southwest Airlines has come up with a way to feel more “LUV” (that's a SW reference) from MGM and Cirque. They’re calling it “The Ultimate Vegas Experience”. And if you meet some specific criteria, you can have this all-inclusive luxury weekend without spending a single dime.

Pay to Play: MyVegas Continues to Push Out Free Users

July 9, 2015 at 4:17 PM | by | ()

It seems like every time we hear people talking about MyVegas, it’s not because there’s good news. Devaluation of points, outright elimination of rewards, and added restrictions on those that remain are now regular occurrences. And, while a few vocal optimists continue to remind us that we can play for free, MyVegas isn’t making it easy.

The three-rewards per 30-day period limit has been the biggest obstacle that free users face when attempting to cash in their points. Many players are caught by surprise, as the limit isn’t well advertised. Even more hidden is the murky path to increasing one’s redemption limit. Making in-game chip purchases is known to bump the number to 4, 5, or even more, but MyVegas reps won’t clarify just how many purchases are required, or how much you need to spend, in order to get the desired result.

Has MyVegas Hit Rock Bottom?

June 17, 2015 at 5:23 PM | by | ()

We’ve featured a lot of stories about MyVegas, some good and some bad. Even though the games are a great way to kill some time and rack of comps and rewards, there always seems to be a number of issues associated with it.

We recently got an email from Wayne, all the way from the UK, about his recent problems with MyVegas.

This is what he said: (Pardon his accent. We've also edited his rant to make it easier to understand.)

A Simple MyVegas Tip to Ensure You Receive the Best Rewards Available

May 15, 2015 at 1:00 PM | by | ()

Want to use your MyVegas rewards on your next trip to Vegas? Secure them BEFORE you roll into town.

MyVegas is an excellent way to supplement your trip to Las Vegas with a few discounted items and even some freebies. The rewards MyVegas offers today may have been better when the game first launched but that’s a story for another day.

When the game first launched many of the rewards, specifically from MGM Resorts, were geared toward tourists. Indeed, when you look at the MGM Resorts rewards offered for players in Nevada, you'll see that they're different than those offered to people playing MyVegas in other states.

But then last year MyVegas added rewards from Station Casinos, in part, to offer Nevada locals some rewards that they might find useful. Those are the only rewards that this Las Vegas local looks at regularly. It’s always nice to extend the weekend by a day with a complimentary room every now and again.

The rewards you can get from Station Casinos don’t differ based on where you play the game but the same isn’t true for the MGM Resorts rewards. Here’s a sample from Aria last night.

MyVEGAS Hosting A Shaq-tastic Party

April 20, 2015 at 8:22 PM | by | ()

Want to party in Vegas with Shaq? Well, not with him but at least in the same nightclub?

MyVegas is offering up just that to players who jump through a few hurdles. For each slots challenge you complete in the online social game, you will receive a certain number of stars. Each star is representative of one entry (bronze star=1 entry, silver star=2, gold=3). MyVEGAS states up to 300 entries can be earned. That is obsession dedication.

2014 A Big Year For MyVEGAS

December 23, 2014 at 7:15 PM | by | ()

2014 saw the continued rise of MyVEGAS. It started off as a social game only available on Facebook and has since expanded with two different mobile platforms and a couple of apps, too.

Late last year, MyVEGAS launched a slots app for mobile phones and tablets. Due to its popularity, a blackjack app was added this year. And, it won’t be the last for the franchise as a video poker app is already planned.

Social casino games, in general, are having a great year. Revenue is expected to be north of $3 billion. Sixty million of that will be earned by MyVEGAS alone. That sounds like a lot, but it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Here's what 2014 brought for MyVEGAS:

A MyVEGAS Stay At Red Rock Resort

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

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.

Palace Station Rooms Are What You Might Expect

Where: 2411 W. Sahara [map], 89102
October 7, 2014 at 1:09 PM | by | ()

When MyVEGAS reps announced rewards for Station Casinos, it became a great excuse to check into Palace Station. Aside from having a delicious dinner at the Charcoal Room, this Chatter'er has only visited the off-Strip property a couple of times, even though I drive by it almost weekly.

Palace Station compares fairly with other near Strip properties like Gold Coast and The Orleans. The mid-range hotel offers fine accommodations, but nothing better than you’d expect for the price point. Midweek rates are about $29 to $49 (plus resort fee) and weekends are closer to $100 per night.
