    Looks like we've got our next "property"

    From an email I just got:

    25% of all players seems EXTREMELY unlikely since probably half the players who started playing, stopped. Hopefully we get this property sooner rather than later, if it is indeed a property.

    Yeah, this is stupid. It is just as difficult to get parts to complete the quest as all the other quests. Except this time you are getting a max of 40k for the last one and usually it is 150k when you complete the last part. It isn't even worth trying...

    ETA: I wish everyone would just stop doing these quests so they would stop offering them. lol

    It takes less XP to complete this one I believe. So less chips makes sense. I heard it took 1.5M XP to finish.

    I pretty much just play these quests now and chip farm. Would rather play the game when I get a little something extra back.

    Oops, I was thinking of the one yesterday.

    This one gives you a total of 116k to go through 1.5+ million? Maybe it is worth it. But, I am only on the 3rd level of it and it took 6 spins @ 4000 to get the 5th piece. Seems kinda high at this low level...

    I'm 1.8 million XP into this quest and I've only got like 11/40 of the last one filled.

    I HATE THESE QUESTS. And yet they always suck me in...

    It took me 80k + 150k + 345k + 650k + 1115k = 2.39M XP to complete the quest.

    EDIT: That is at level 129

    I have been chip hoarding for almost 10 days now.

    I didn't participate in the Puzzle Quest and I won't participate in this Monorail Quest. It's a waste of spent chips, I think.

    I'll wait until another Double XP weekend pops up to play.

    I got it completed in much less than 1 million XP's. Was playing at 1500 a spin and it took me barely over an hour of running the autospin. Had nearly the same number of chips when I finished as I did when I started - maybe 25K less and I thought I was doing relatively poorly in the bonus rounds most of the times.

    Vegas Groove, I hear you about hoarding but you are losing the 2k (or whatever until you drop to zero) LP's per day that you would normally get when playing....

    Seems about what I put in too.

    I hate these quests, but for the possibility of building the monorail I made an exception. All told I burnt through 500k or 600k at reel chef total, which isn't bad, but I'm not a fan of the slots.

    Agreed that 25% of players completing the quest is too high of a bar, so maybe myvegas will give us something else in return.

    So much for being a new "property". It's simply there to look good. Disappointing

    Agree. I will keep hoarding until this quest goes bye-bye. We haven't had Double XP in a while, hope it is coming soon so I can play.

    I am in no hurry to rack up LPs. I've already spent my 4 rewards for the February 2014 trip. So I am hoarding chips to play for the June 2014 trip.

    On Facebook it said that you'll be able to collect chips from it starting later this week.

    Hopefully it spits out chips and LPs like Aria or MGM, and not that Wolfgang Puck restaurant they added a couple months ago.

    On a positive note, I actually increased my chip count by 200-300K while completing the Monorail quest. Usually I would play lucky birds for these things, where I would "tread water" more or less, maybe go down a little bit. I switched to frontier fortune for this one, and had a couple good runs. I think that will be my game of choice for the time being.

    Monorail is now paying out chips. Just got 200 off of it. Not sure about LP, can anyone confirm?

    I just scored 5k chips off of it. I guess I just got lucky and that might be near the maximum, darn, I was hoping it was like MGM :p

    Girlfriend just checked and it was 300 for her, so I must have just gotten super lucky (like hitting the 1k lp or 12k chips on MGM)
