Checking Back In On MyVEGAS

July 11, 2014 at 3:17 PM | by | Comments (18)

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.

MyVEGAS Success Could Reap Greater Rewards

May 2, 2014 at 4:42 PM | by | Comments (14)

As MGM Resorts and PlayStudios continue to add more games, more rewards and more players to their ever-growing, uber popular MyVEGAS Facebook game, it begs the question of what (if anything) can they not link to the game.

MyVEGAS has been steadily adding new partners. Sugar Factory, the Las Vegas Monorail, Wolfgang Puck, House of Blues and Vdara have all climbed on board. Are there others on the way? It's probably a safe bet.

MyVEGAS Adds Freeplay, Bottomless Guinness To Rewards

January 28, 2014 at 5:54 PM | by | Comments (8)

The loyalty points have really been racking up ever since the MyVEGAS App launched in November. With players now earning points from both their desktops and mobile devices, it’s about time some new rewards have been introduced.

The most popular of the new rewards is clearly Freeplay. Up 'til now, if you managed your rewards the right way, you could pay for just about every part of a Vegas vacation with MyVEGAS points. Rooms, meals, shows, even monorail transportation have been available. The only aspect that hasn’t been addressed, until now, is gambling. With the addition of Freeplay rewards, even your bankroll can come at no cost.

Our Thoughts After Playing Around On The Newly Launched MyVEGAS App

November 15, 2013 at 2:06 PM | by | Comments (5)

After what felt like an eternity the MyVEGAS app is here for both Android and iPhone platforms. Thankfully, you no longer have to spend countless hours at work earning loyalty coins for your upcoming trip. Now, you can do it on the go, too.

This writer got a chance to play the beta version as I'm a resident of Canada so I had some early concerns about the full release. But, just over a week after the official launch, I'm happy to report that the game runs much more smoothly than I ever expected it would. Being a regular player of the original Facebook version of MyVEGAS (brought to us by MGM Resorts and PLAYSTUDIOS) since it first broke onto the scene last August, it has been a frustrating, to say the least, experience when the game freezes up or lags significantly. However, the MyVEGAS phone/tablet app has been quick and responsive, especially impressive when running on 3G!

The myVEGAS App Is Finally Here

October 31, 2013 at 3:05 AM | by | Comments (6)

The myVEGAS app we’ve all been waiting for is finally here… in America. We were giving the opportunity to play the game ahead of the masses and, we have to say, we’re pretty impressed.

The game play on your mobile device looks identical to the game we’ve all fallen in love with on Facebook. The same slot games are included, but there are new mini-games when you're lucky enough to get three bonus icons on the reels. But, the best part of the app is something not included in the Facebook game; both, by the way, brought to us by MGM Resorts and PLAYSTUDIOS.

MyVegas App Coming Soon

October 11, 2013 at 2:19 PM | by | Comments (2)

MyVegas has gifted many of us with rewards to MGM Resorts properties and it seems as if earning those rewards are going to become even easier. Since the launch of MyVegas most of us had to play the game on a computer through Facebook. However, MyVegas isn’t available to play on Facebook mobile apps. (Although, some diehards downloaded the photon app to let them play via the Facebook website on their mobile device.)

Well, we’re all going to have the opportunity to play MyVegas on a mobile device shortly. PlayStudios, creator of MyVegas, has announced that there will be an app for the game coming soon. The MyVegas app will be released sometime this fall for both Android and Apple devices in America. Once again, our friends in Canada already have access to the MyVegas app. The app is considered to still be in testing.

Four MyVEGAS Redemption Tips

August 9, 2013 at 3:49 PM | by | Comments (26)

We're back with some helpful hints and tricks for everyone's (it's everyone's, right?) favorite comps earning Facebook game, MyVEGAS. If you aren't playing MyVEGAS by now, you can start immediately by going here.

Previously, I outlined my redemption of vast amounts of free stuff comps rewards, which have been working out perfectly for my Vegas visits. However, when I went back to do a second round of redemptions recently, I noticed things had changed quite a bit! With increased game play and MGM Resorts' constant expected tinkering with prize availability and loyalty point costs, I noticed it was a little more difficult to get what I wanted. After some digging around, I found a few helpful hints and tricks that could help you get that beloved reward, too.

This Is Who Redeemed The Bellagio Fountains Prize on MyVEGAS

July 30, 2013 at 6:49 PM | by | Comments (12)

Ever since we shared news that the Bellagio Fountains reward had been redeemed on MyVEGAS, the popular Facebook game by MGM Resorts that's proven to be the real deal when it comes to comps, we've wondered just who cashed in those one million loyalty points. Today, we have the answer. And, the picture.

Meet Eric and Sue Wiebusch. Eric surprised Sue with the special honor of choosing the music to which the iconic fountains dance as a 60th birthday present. The couple picked two songs then relaxed on the Prime patio with champagne in hand and friends at their side to take it all. Their song choices? God Bless the USA and Lucy In The Sky with Diamonds.

Well played, Eric. Well played. Both in real life and on Facebook. And, yes, we all apparently need to step up our Vegas game now.

So, The Bellagio Fountains Reward On MyVEGAS...

July 8, 2013 at 3:32 PM | by | Comments (9)

We dreamed of pumping up the volume, but a very dedicated MyVEGAS player will actually receive the power to program the Bellagio Fountains, for reals.

VegasChatter member theduke282 let us know on June 25 that the top prize on MGM Resorts' Facebook game was sold out, but he wasn't sure if that meant someone had actually redeemed it, or if it was just removed as an offering.

Help Needed: Which Show Should We Choose From MyVEGAS?

June 26, 2013 at 4:32 PM | by | Comments (26)

MyVEGAS is a fun game and great for tourists, but it's fairly useless if you live in Las Vegas and don't like Cirque du Soleil shows. Yeah, I'm that guy. When I'm in a casino I gamble, bet on sports, eat steak and drink too much vodka. When I started playing MyVEGAS the goal was to play enough to get a free crash pad for a night. Well, that never happened.

I didn't realize that MyVEGAS was made specifically for tourists until they started removing comp rooms from my rewards as I approached the point threshold. For example, a room at Luxor may have been 75,000 points, but when I attained that many points the rooms were gone. All hope wasn't lost as rooms at The Mirage or Aria were still available around 150,000 points but, again, as I approached 150,000 points that reward was gone. That may have just been strange timing, but it felt sketchy.
