    I find I am having no luck at amassing any amount of chips to play through the special bonus offers and I am reluctant to purchase chips...kinda defeats the purpose. Does anyone have any tips on growing chip stacks in my vegas? I always collect chips multiple times per day from my strip, I never miss my daily bonus spin and have maxed out the bonus multipliers for the spin as well. I play my spins at 600 or 1500 per spin as that seems to be optimum for LP acrual. Anyone have some tips that might help me?

    Yes those are the optimal amounts if you have a theoretically infinite supply of chips, but you will never accumulate any significant chips without spiking bonuses at higher denominations per spin or supplementing your slot play with blackjack to accumulate chips

    One of the keys is to aim for a long term sustained level of play.

    The 600 and 1500 bets per spin might be the mathematically optimal betting amounts for earning LP but somebody who bets 1500 per spin but is then out of chips in 30 seconds is going to earn less LP than somebody who is betting 200 per spin but plays on for an hour or two - even though the 200 per spin level of play is far less than optimal, they are playing longer and thus able to eventually accumulate more LP.

    To that end, you need to look at how many chips you have: if you just harvested all your properties and did the daily spin and you have 18,000 chips at 1500 per spin thats going to last you 12 spins before you run through your bankroll once... and the more times you go through your bankroll the higher your risk of ruin (running out of chips) is.

    Its important that you want to be able to ride the highs and lows, to be able to survive a downswing and then wait for an upswing, to be able to play until eventually hitting the big bonus that wins you a lot of chips.

    agree with this
    yes, just get the money from your properties to conserve funds.
    and get your daily bonus every day- a few friends help, too!

    and only bet 300-600 until you get up to a million. before you know it you will be up to two million chips.

    There are a couple of FB groups that also have hints and tips and "large chip shares" where people post links to the casino FB sites or twitter when there are free chips to be had. The links are often for 1k to 2k so help with the chip stack.
    The two I know of are MyvegasFriends and MyVegasFriendsRocks.

    When a useless promotion like the easter egg hunt is going on I just do my daily spin and collect from resorts. I olp out for things like Double XP, Double LP on Level up sort of stuff.
