    I've been minimizing my play for the last few weeks and growing my chip count (did do the recent puzzle though).

    My wife's account has just over 1 million red chips.

    For those of you that save your chips for special events like puzzles and double XP, how many chips do you like to have available?

    Thanks,
    Tye

    I try not to fall below 11 million, currently at 12.5m. I'm grinding my way until i redeem in June, so I'm just aiming to gradually build up LPs and a Red Chip count. Then when it gets to be May or so I'll see how many LPs I am from what I want to redeem for, and then spend whatever stack I've built up on a double XP weekend.

    But that's not to say that I don't play. I just build up a bit, and then when I've built up 250,000 or so I'll hit up Jewels Verne. If I get close to minus 250,000 I'll stop. If I end up +250,000 then I'll hold off and built up another 250,000. Basically using XX,000,000 or XX,5000,000 as my "don't go below this" line.

    my highest so far was a couple of weeks at about 2,25 million.

    in a drunken binge, i through it all away. currently at rebuildung: about 500k; and i play every second or third bonus..

    Goal, for now, is to go and stay upward of 1 million

    Exactly! LOL I go broke everyday...even from 100k (only betting 1200 chips per spin!)
    However, we go to Vegas so damn often, and have plenty of comps, so...we're just getting smaller stuff (free dinner buffets @ MGM & Mirage)

    Tim,
    This is the first I time I've noticed you mentioning MyVegas. Do you have some favorite rewards?

    I always run myself down to 0 every day. I don't accumulate them that quickly, and I'm going in 6 weeks. So no point holding onto the chips.

    You do not need to have friends who play etc.
    I only have one which gets me a couple of percent more for the daily spin. Never bought any chips
    Have played for 4 months and have about 191,000 lp now.

    But it surely helps!
    I've got the max for friends (500% more bonus) and I get "impressive" everyday (20k chips "share" bonus) and collect my daily spin and harvest from my properties, so I'm getting 100k chips per day (about) and I STILL go broke DAILY...
    I HAD been at least getting up to the daily limit of 2000 LP, but now (at level 90) I can't even get 500 LP!

    I usually do not have the time to play everyday. at least not at 1000; play maybe a hour a week on average (for a special promo) and on drunken binges..

    How many friends do you need to get the 500% bonus? don't really think the friend-whoring can be worth the couple of dollars you get in comps at the end...


    I, for one, have even trouble finding 3-4 days (to even fly to vegas) at which all conditions are reasonable:
    a) i have time off (usually i can only plan about 3 weeks in advance)
    b) flight prices from florida are reasonable (less than 500 bucks airfare)
    c) myvegas room comps are available at the nicer hotels (aria or bellagio)

    thought about going in january, but would have been only 2 nights for 650 airfaire and only MB as a hotel -> not acceptable :(

    Sorry for the rant!!

    For a while I was hovering around 400-500k on average for red chips. I got up to 1.5mil but have slowly worked down to about 250k since I'm playing more while I'm holiday break and it looks like I'm going to be doing 4 trips in the next year (as opposed to my 1-2 trips per year average) and I need to starting saving LPs.

    I got lucky. I had 1M before the recent double XP on Betrocks. Since it was double XP, I decided to play at 30K a spin. It eventually went up to 5M after some 1M and 2M wins.

    Note: I don't have a million friends for the bigger bonuses and I never play unless they have a promo going on. Pretty much I just collect chips every 6/7 hours every day.

    I take'em to zero daily. Mainly because I've never had the luck/build up some of you have.

    I am sitting with 16k right now, with 89k LP. I seem to lose the chips so fast. Betting 300 or 400 a spin. I am level 68.

    What's Jules Verne? Is that a specific game you only get at a certain level? I'm at Level 100.

    Jules Verne is the time machine game. Everybody has access to it. It's the second game you unlock. Around the world in 80 days is practically a clone of Jules Verne, except in Jules you get less freespins in the bonus and it triggers way more often.
