    My friend has had problems with the bonus round of, Lost in Time, and Around the World. They are on a lap top, wireless. I know that can be a problem in itself. But, I am on a desk top, wired, fairly fast and had the same problem at times. While on a bonus round, I can click on an object and it will not register for a second or two. Both of us has cleared our internet cache and history. It seems to happen most often in our later afternoon. Some times morning. (Pacific time) And of course not just on the weekends. Could it be lots of people on my end or maybe Facebook is too crowded at this time? I'm not too computer savey.

    I've noticed that both of those games slow down the longer you play. To the point where it can barely spin anymore after a couple hundred spins. Closing and re-opening the broser seems to help.

    Most likely you're running low on memory. Facebook in and of itself is a memory hog, and myVegas compounds the issue. Shutting down and re-starting the browser will usually help for a while. If you're on an older machine (5 yrs old or so), the amount of memory in your machine may well be too low to keep up with the newer online apps. Take a look at the processes tab in the task manager to see how much memory the browser you're using is consuming when you notice that it starts to slow down.

    When I first started playing myVegas, I tried using my older machine (much older, only 500M of RAM), and it bogged down very quickly. On my new laptop (with 8G RAM) I never have an issue, whether I'm hard-wired or using Wifi.

    Just what I was going to say, RAM issue. I've tried to play on older computers with like 1GB of RAM and it's pretty much impossible. On my rig, 8GB just like yours, I've never had a problem.

    MyVegas seems to have quite a few memory leaks. Over time, this ends up with massive amounts of RAM being allocated to the MyVegas game (which is Flash based). Most of this allocated RAM is not even being used by the game, but the coders forgot to deallocate the memory to "free" it up, and this is what results in a memory leak.

    They really should optimize their code as it appears to have poor memory management. I've seen cases where my browser's process was using in excess of 1 gig of RAM after running MyVegas for a log time.

    Like others said, restarting your browser is the best fix.
