    I was shocked to see there was only one of these awards left, which I'm assuming 9 people actually spent 10,000,000 LPs to have Shaq shout them out on Twitter?! LOL! What every floats your boat, I guess!

    With so many of the good rewards either gone (like show tickets) or require an Mlife stay (no good for me, as I'm all CET), there isn't much to spend points on these days. My last two trips I've spent probably like 50,000 when I have 100,000s of thousands. If I had 10 million, I'd think about it haha

    Probably will be redeemed by one of those narcissistic sheeple running through the casinos with their iPhone 6 on a selfie stick.

    I like the little caddy shaq driving down the vegas strip.

    Honestly, I think the autographed tee for 25k loyalty points is a great deal. The others... maybe not (at least for me, I don't have twitter).

    And the 7.5 million LP's for floor seats for two are probably pretty expensive in real life, upwards of $1,000 a ticket, so not bad. Shaq kinda gets some of that money back as a partial owner. :evillaugh

    If the autograph isn't photocopied, I agree. For that LP price, I'm not so sure it's original. The twitter thing has to be the biggest ripoff in the history of the game.

    I have no proof, but I have a feeling the 25K autographed shirt isn't a legit autograph. The autographed basketball is one million LP's and while a basketball certainly can cost more than a cheap tshirt, I doubt it'd be 40 times more expensive.

    These autograph rewards makes me wish that Playstudios had partnered with Sidney Crosby or Eden Hazard instead of Shaq. Not really a basketball fan.

    A lot of bloggers/social media experts use twitter as a tool to make money. They endorse products, websites in return for payments. So, the number of followers they have is very crucial for them to be able to charge higher rates.

    @shaq has 9.57M followers, and he only follows 738 people. So, when that number goes up to 748 with a shout out for each new addition, those people will see a lot of traffic to their twitter accounts from those 9.57M people. Their # of followers will probably skyrocket.

    So, it makes business sense for some. Others, I can't tell :)

    Yea they raised the price. (Actually, I think the old reward was 25k for a Caddy Shaq autographed tee, and this 100k one is a new reward because its a ShaqJack autographed tee, but the 25k one is gone)

    Also, they added a lunch + basketball game with Shaq himself, for... TWENTY MILLION LP's. Time to break the piggy bank.

    Oh and a 15 second voicemail for 1.5 million LP's. For those who can't afford the tweet n follow.
