    I didn't try to get the reward because I mostly play at Aria and would probably earn enough points to play anyway without losing loyalty points. However I did call Aria's VIP desk to inquire about the slot tournament and they in turn called the Concierge because they had no info - in fact they did not know what I was talking about when I mentioned it! I had to read back the description from My Vegas. What they did find out was that it has not fully been rolled out yet so the details are still very sketchy, but there should be more information coming in the next couple of weeks.

    I'm headed out there next week; I hope they have that tournament in place by then because I should be playing at a high enough level to qualify via points.

    It just says Monday-Thursday. So I assume it's available NOW and lasts indefinitely. The newest awards, the Royal Caribbean stuff, have a statement that they can't be redeemed until Monday. I got to the same point you did today and also didn't get it. Meh.

    I was at the Aria 9/8 - 17/8 and they only started the slot tourney on the Monday. I missed every day but the last as I hadnt visited the Mlife desk and noticed the flyers untill the Wednesday. As I was staying at the Aria so the 500 points required for entry, only one per day, wernt had to achieve.
    It was a fast furious 3 minutes of button punching. I came 4th out of 5 lol, the lady next to me won the $500 free play. It was fun but would have been more so had I won. Apparently there were only 2 players on the Tuesday as it had only just started that week Doh!
    The machines are a bank of 2 four back to back machines just behinde the High Limit slots area with big screens above them.
    Save your LP's and play out for the points, not sure its worth 100k hard earned LP's for 3 mins but thats just MHO :thumbsup:

    How do you win the slot tournament? Is it just how fast you push buttons? or how much you actually bet during the 3 minutes?

    With any slot tournament the player with the highest score at the end of the allotted time wins. The player with the second highest score is second place etc.

    woo hoo, hubby was able to redeem this one today, we used the trick of only putting in initials and copying and pasting the email

    now just have to decide if we are going to do it both on the same day or different days

    wish us luck

    We purchased this yesterday and re-deemed (and played) today.

    In total there were 6 players and 2 no shows.

    Top 3 get prizes.

    1st prize : $500 free play
    2nd prize : 2 free tickets to Zarkana
    3rd prize : 2 free dinner buffet tickets

    We came in 2nd!
    The seats in zarkana are dead center in the first section, about 7 rows back from the stage.
    Should be amazing!

    I would totally recommend going for this MV reward. Since there are so few players (for now) the odds are great to win!

    My wife ended up playing for me. It was 3 minutes of button mashing, then every 15 seconds or so a balloon would appear on screen that you had to touch to pop (to get extra points). She had a blast! There were 8 machines set up to play the tournament, so I wonder if they limit the amount of entries to 8 per day?
