    Anyone doing these?

    My wife (Level 107) reported it took 700,000 coin-in to clear the first three puzzles. All for the chance at 3,000 chips, 6,000 chips, and 15,000 (x7 bonus multiplier).

    Total bonus chips received was 77,000. Not exactly the greatest payback...but she did get 750 lp for completing.

    I'm at level 143 and its the same bonus. I think I'll pass.

    I don't like these...much prefer Double XP since every time I level up I get 1000 LP.
    Think I will just collect and save my chips and wait for the next round of that.

    i think its worth it for the 750 LPs. I wasn't counting but 700k seems about right. considering the bonus chips and the fact that it can take up to 1.2 million chips during a double xp day to earn 1000Lps, this seems worth it to me.

    I like these short ones! Just completed it in about half an hour betting 1,500-3,000 per spin, gained 100,000 chips in the process and earned 750 LPs!

    Despite my hating these challenges, I decided to do it yesterday. Including the bonuses I received from the scratch cards, I doubled my chips from 330,000 to 660,000 playing Betrock.

    Today's challenge took 1,005,000 xp for me to finish. I ended up getting the biggest scratch card for each of the three challenges but I still ended up down about 80,000 chips.

    Just lost 300k chips in just over 150 spins betting 3,000 and just barely cleared the second puzzle today playing Betrock. No idea how people can do all of these unless they have millions of chips in the bank.

    It seems that everyone who is finishing the Day 2 challenge is getting the top prize available from each scratch card.

    So much for this being "random."

    Hmmm, I did Day 1 yesterday and decided not to continue. Although, I like the scratch-offs more than the quests, I feel burned out from the back-to-back challenges.

    After the Christmas quest, I made myself promise to hoard chips and get my million chips back. So that's what I'm doing - back to hoarding until after this current scratch-off is over.

    I love these ones, both my husband and i finished the first day with enough coins to play today and now he has almost 400k to start tomorrow and i am over 300k. I had an amazing comeback yesterday with only 2k points and 5 pieces left to go and got up to 60k, got the points when down to 12k and had 100k to start the day today.

    I prefer these above all others.

    I just finished my wife's and my quests...I was able to nail the MAX chips on every one of them (just picked the four outside corners, then the top left inside corner every time; weird?)
    Got lucky and didn't LOSE too much going through it all.

    Yup, me too.

    For the first two days, I'm up about 300,000 plus getting the 750 LPs times two, so I'm very satisfied so far.

    I counted, and I've noticed that it takes ~7000 chips to get 10 LP ("a fill"), so that boils down to 700 reds per 1 gold.
    So if the "challenge" took 750k to complete, it would be break-even (as far as regular chip earning goes) however you get the "bonus" of more red chips at each stage...
    So in effect, for those 750k reds, you would be earning at a rate of 700 reds per 2 gold...double LP earnings (but ONLY for that short period)
    SEEMS GOOD TO ME!

    I'll do any challenge that pays out LPs. I have been blowing thru these xmas ones on the new Betrock game, at 60k per spin it only takes a few minutes to complete all the scratch cards and get the 750 LP bonus. I hit some free spins today, so I'm up about 1M chips thru the first couple days.

    Day 3: I got the max bonus for each of the three scratch cards again.

    Played Betrock at 3k per spin. One spin in one of the bonus rounds gave me 755k chips! I'm now over 1 mil chips for the first time ever.

    I haven't been counting but I have put over 1 million coin in and haven't completed the the 3rd puzzle yet. I ran out of chips, I have to wait to collect from the casinos.

    Is it just me or does it seem that if you bet 2000 per spin it takes less total coin in to collect puzzle pieces. When I bet 2000 spins I collect a piece about every 7 or 8 spins. If I bet 400 per spin it takes about 80 to 100 spins per piece.

    Took me 1.3 million today to complete all three scratch cards. It seems to be going up every day.
