    I dont see another thread on this, so please delete if it is out there. Most of the high end rewards have vanished! 95% of the rewards are now less than 30k and not great. Hopefully they come back or my computer just didn't load of all them.

    Your location is currently in Vegas and are seeing their "locals rewards."

    Yeah, I agree with this. I pity anyone that's permanently in LV for this game.

    MGM doesn't want business from those of us who live in Vegas. I'm surprised they don't have someone checking IDs at the door and telling locals to not enter the property. Some casinos here appreciate our business.....MGM properties are not in that group and miss out on a lot of business as a result.

    None of the rewards get mailed do they? If not, just change your address to somewhere in CA. Then fire up a VPN and route your traffic to whatever state you choose.
    I got to watch all the Olympics via the BBC using my VPN. The BBC blocked any user from the US because NBC wants you to only watch their feed. I just selected London and their tracking system didn't know anything different.

    Your mlife card is linked to your myvegas account, no? The same mlife card is linked to your drivers license/ID card, with real address (and I think the ability to see your scanned drivers license, complete with picture).

    So you might be able to earn the LP's, or even buy rewards the through myvegas the first time, but have trouble redeeming them.

    I've heard you don't have to link it until go to cash them in. Also, I've actually moved a few times since being an MLife memeber, once stopped in Vegas between permanent addresses. They really have no idea at that point where you live.
    You could have it as California while you are playing, then when switch it back to Las Vegas after you cash them in. There are always ways around these things.

    The game can tell where you are when you connect to it. If you try to look at it when in Vegas, you simply won't see the rewards. No matter what your location is "set" as.

    That's not true, that's what a VPN is for, you can spoof your location. You can be in Vegas, change you IP to somewhere in NYC and that's where it will think you are. As proof, if you start surfing the web you'll notice all the different online ads will be targeted to NYC. Trust me on this one, it's how I make my living.
