No and I never would. I am a "gamer" and have no problem spending money on games and apps but these free to play games are usually a rip off. With the rate I lose chips in this game, i'd feel like I was throwing money away.
Only exception.......is If I was really close to an important reward that I really wanted shortly before a trip. I'd probably buy some chips to make that goal if it was valuable to me, like a "free" hotel room.
not buying chips. i just play smaller.
Nope, never bought chips and I won't, either. I would if they didn't continuously devalue the LP's (raising the amount required for rewards etc).
No, I haven't and I won't.
For some games I don't have a problem paying for things or buying apps... but with MyVegas I knew I wasn't going to Las Vegas last year so buying chips wouldn't make any sense because I didn't need to earn any faster - I have over 600K worth of LPs now and am going to probably have a hard time spending them as it is.
But even if I was going to Las Vegas twice a year last year I'd still have just played it for free and used whatever LPs I earned for each trip
nope because then you are basically buying the free stuff.
No. Defeats the purpose.
My wife and I each bought about $50 in chips last year. That gave us 6 rewards each, but that has since dropped to 4/30. We'll be in Vegas 3/30-4/4 and have 8 rewards we're using for about $1000 in savings. Not too bad of an investment.
I have a couple of times, 5 bucks each time. I wont do it again. I was close to leveling on double xp so I bought some, and I swear I did not win anything. I feel like the game can just make you waste chips, so its not worth it to me, especially as you level up.
I would have considered perhaps $5/10 early last year when that got you an extra reward (and when the rewards were both good AND decently priced). But it's really pointless paying for chips now.
The only way people will benefit and get value from this game is just playing it for free
Started a couple weeks ago and must have been reading an older thread where a coin purchase gives you an extra reward so I bought once. This is sadly no longer the case.
No need to buy chips ever if playing through FB. If you have a few hundred friends people keep gifting and it's easy to harvest free chips from your news feed too. Can scoop 20-40k free chips daily.
I think I read somewhere that now it's once you get above $40 in chip purchases you trigger the 4th reward. How much did you buy?
I bought chips the first day. I'm not proud of it, but, I did it. $5 worth twice.
Over $40 would be funny since the one level is $39. I bought $10 on my second day when I went bust, wanted the extra reward and to keep playing too. If you have enough points $40 would be worth the extra reward especially when talking about comped nights or 2 free tickets to a show. Have to be in the hundreds of thousands range though.
I have not bought chips and since last May I have redeemed 6 nights and 2 + Drinks entry to Minus 5. Have over 300k LPs and will see what I want for the trip this May
Never, and will never pay for them. I chose not to have friends on Facebook, so all of my play is on chips from the daily spin, collection in casinos, and the facebook links or emails. Haven't had any problem playing the game just using the chips that are free. Am up to almost 275,000 loyalty and anticipating some good rewards for our May trip.
We're the same way. We don't friend anyone on Facebook. Might I ask how long it took you to build up that LP balance? Do you have any strategy for playing on the chips you can get for free without friends? Thanks.
I'm the same way but i've had trouble keeping chips. I'm constantly broke. I have friends on there but no one else seems to be playing and I refuse to spam my friends wall.
Never purchased. Always felt broke til got the entire strip built, or really closer to level 100. Level 300 now with 500k some odd LP if my math is correct... 215k Aria Weekend Bonus, 99k Aria Midweek Bonus, 52k Monte Carlo Comp Wasted, 28k Bellagio Buffet, 125k banked currently.
Just gotta grind it out til you hit a nice bonus. Maybe supplement with Blackjack at the mid levels if you feel like you can double up you chips more often than lose significant amounts. Best thing is usually go a week or two of only collecting your strip once its fully built.
Only have 2 friends that play at all.
