    Hi all,

    I've noticed some things since last Friday that I wanted to bring up on here, with other MyVegas players....

    I've noticed that the average amount of chips a casino property pays out has been much lower than before (MGM never paid less than 2500 chips before, now I'm getting 1250 chips from it, and other properties as well), is anyone else noticing this?

    I also noticed a increase as to what a property will pay out in terms of LP. I just got 500 LP from Luxor, the max before was 250.

    It seems they halfed the "average" chips payout on properties, but doubled the "average" LP payout on properties...

    Is anyone else noticing this, or have I gone MyVegas crazy??? :peace:

    It does seem like they have changed. I got 500 LP from Mandalay Bay where I would only get 250 LP max before. I am also only getting 1000 chips from MGM where I used to get at least 2500. That is frustrating because of how long it takes before you are able to collect from it.

    It also seems that I have been getting less LP collections from all the properties. Anyone else experiencing this?

    I've noticed it, too. For me, it seemed to follow right after I accomplished that million chips bonus on the pre-Thanksgiving bonus postcard game, so I wasn't sure if my all-time-high chip count had something to do with it or if everyone had noticed the decreased amount of chips.

    I've also noticed a significant reduction in chips and lp's being collected. I used to get 400-1000 LPs per day from hotels. Now i'm lucky to get 250, unless getting lucky and receiving 500 from one of them.

    And 1000 chips from MGM is ridiculous. This game keeps getting harder and harder to earn rewards, and the rewards just keep getting worse. I really can't complain, as my next trip has two night at aria, two at mirage, and two O tickets for free; but I question whether or not it will be worth it to keep playing after.

    Just got 1000 chips from MGM. It's like 8 hrs before it refreshes itself, all for 1000 chips? I don't think that's very fair....But then again, its a free game so I can't complain too much.

    I also never seem to get LP from resorts anymore, whereas I used to be able to get 750-1000LP's a day, just from collections from the casinos....

    I dunno - my husband got 1000 LP's from MGM recently & we pretty regularly get over 2K. I think it may depend on how often you collect.

    Whatever has happened, I'm really sick and tired of getting lps, especially on the daily spin. Good example is this morning. Landed on 1k gold lps and by the time I got chips from the properties I had 13k red chips to gamble with. How far do you think I'll get with that paltry amount?:evillaugh

    I've already got close to 600k lps for my April trip so I need more like I need a hole in the head.

    MGM has been giving me 1000 chips this week too. Sucks.
    Hardly any LP's as well, when the previous two weeks I'd definitely get more from the top 4 casinos (the 400 at least a day like the previous poster said).
    Add in the fact my daily spin seems to always land on the smallest chip pile and it is rotting my head!

    I thought it was just me getting less chips/LPs since I recently redeemed about 250k LPs. I guess I'm glad to know it's not just me.

    They have absolutely decreased the payouts from the hotels. 1000 from MGM/Mandalay seems to be the norm now.

    My guess is this is because of the availability of the mobile verison. People have two ways they can play and earn lp now, so they have to make it harder for us.

    I understand the need to tighten up the amounts given out but it seems they took it a little bit too far.

    i do not really feel like they tightned anything...

    I still average about 40-50k in red chips everyday. and around 500-750 golden ones (without playing; just chip saving)...

    started saving a week ago and now have 410k chips as of now

    I haven't gotten any LP's from my properties in 3 days. I really want LP's right now so it really sucks!! Also getting less red chips from properties.

    Seems to me that the object of the game is to get LPs - chips are just a way to acquire them. If you just want to play just use a minimum chip spin until you build up more chips. I am sure the spins that give you LP's are designed to be the optimum results from the spin.

    The goal is to build up the gold LP's. I love hitting the 1000 LP's on the spin as that translates into nearly 4000 LP's after all the multipliers. It would take hundreds of thousands of red coins and hours of game play to get that many LP's from game play. I'd much rather get LP's than red coins from spins and properties.

    I have noticed that I am getting far fewer LP's from my properties. I usually click 3-4 times per day and would average 800-1000 LP's just from this as the last four properties used to give LP's about 75% of the time. Now I may only get 200-250 LP's a day from clicking on properties. Something has definitely changed.

    they probably adjusted the stats on when the 15,000 will occur. I'm still getting paltry amounts (in comparison to what they were), and getting LPs from properties far less often than pre-thanksgiving.

    I've been able to grind it out, based on hoping for LPs from properties. If I can average 500 lp twice a day, i figure 7,000 a week is a pretty good rate, on top of playing. But their tightening of the property drops makes things difficult.

    I used to get up to 1,500 LPs per day from collecting from my strip but I don't think I've even got over 500 in the last 4 days. I also notice how my daily spin is far more inclined to land on the LPs instead of chips when there is Double XP or puzzles going on. Both days of Double XP on betrock, my spin landed on 250 LP's.
