    Finally! I started playing in 2012 as something to do while deployed to the sandbox and after years of building buildings, adding fake Facebook friends, and Autospinning 500 spins, I finally reached 1,000,000 LPs. Just wish that I would have hit this mark before they nerfed all the rewards so that I could be getting some free nights at Bellagio. I know a lot of people complain about this game, but I'm going to keep plugging along. Free spa for my wife or free buffets for the two of us ain't bad, I guess.

    I have no idea what I'm going to spend it on, either. I want the free room nights at MGM Grand, I guess. What rooms do you end up with?

    Right now I have slightly over 3million LP's (hit this awesome jackpot on the phone app last year and a 2 week long winning streak I made over 2million gold!!)

    I've used a bunch of rewards over the last couple years.... Buffets, free play, shows. I like buffets (when free lol) never eat it's worth so it's nice when it's free. I've used myvegas rewards in Vegas, Biloxi and tunica :)

    I have no idea how you'd spend all of those LPs. I have 500k and haven't played the game in over a year, have made 3 trips since, and barely spend 100k in redemptions each time. Not much left that really excites me to keep adding to the pile (although I do play the BJ mobile game every now and then) but I do enjoy the couple of small rewards we redeem each trip.

    You get the worst rooms of the house at MGM: the west wing rooms...

    Which, as a person who regularly stays at Luxor, I thought were perfectly fine. I'm not the fanciest.

    2015 I booked Mandalay Bay through Myvegas, really nice room.Also got the Foundation Room, but that wasn't necessary because they were handing out free entries around the casino. My DH and I both took the $25 credit at Nine Fine Irishman and ate / drank during Happy Hour, lots of fun on $50.00. We also saw the Austrailian Beegees at Luxor which was a good show. The salmon crepe at Aria is HUGE, plenty for two in my opinion, but I'm a girl :). That was 3 rewards each! Quite the take for nothing other than our time. Although I miss some of the old rewards, the current ones are still good!

    What are the odds of $20 tricking to a better room on a Sunday-Thursday stay?

    My wife is over a million, I am over 850k, we have received over $2500 in comps since the system started, but the rewards have gotten cheaper, I don't know if time spent is still worth it. Don't get me wrong, I applaud MGM for offering this program, it cinched my loyalty, but I liked it more in the beginning.

    Depends on your definition of "worth it", I guess. For me, it's worth having spinning in the background at work.

    I only have 500K LP but there is nothing to spend it on. What are some decent rewards that are still around?

    If I were in your position, I'd use them on some Cirque tickets and a couple buffet passes.

    Two years ago I cashed in myvegas rewards and got three consecutive nights at the MGM (back when you could do that). It was supposed to be the west wing rooms but the clerk upgraded me for free to the Grand Tower without my even asking. And we were there for the marathon so it was quite busy. She said it was closer to the elevator, perhaps I looked tired. :)
    This is the video I took of the room once we checked in.
