    My searching skills must be off because I cannot find any rules and restrictions on Freeplay from Mlife.

    I received my first offer with Freeplay and I am not shore of what games I can use it on.

    The amount is $225.

    Many thanks.

    I think typically you can play it on any table game. And if its for slot play, I think you can use it on any machine other than the progressives

    Freeplay is slot play and can be used on any slot. don't think you can use it on fullpay VP, though, if they even have any.

    Freeplay is often restricted on the most current slot machines as well as video craps, roulette, and blackjack. You will see signs bolted on which say Freeplay not available on this machine.

    Table play is table play.

    Freeplay is for slots. Well over 90% of machines will accept freeplay. Okay, that number is not accurate, but in my experience, it is close.

    I do not think you will find any rules.

    Freeplay can be used on any machine owned by the casino at MGM properties the only machines that you can't use it on are the leased machines owned by other companies. At MGM you can use it on full pay vp I just did that last weekend on 9/6 job in the MGM high limit room

    Just FYI and based upon my last trip in August:

    • the majority of VP machines at MLife properties are short pay! Use Jacks or Better (JOB) as example, their paytables suck big time (9/5, 8/5, 7/5, etc.) At Aria, you can find 9/5 JOB at $1/$2 level. Bellagio's $1/$2 level, mostly with 8/5 JOB.
    • There are full-pay 9/6 JOB machines which start from $5 level (i.e., $25 per spin while playing max 5 bets) --- Aria, Bellagio, Mirage have plenty of them inside the High Limit or scattered on the casino floor. You need to have deep pocket (ample bankroll) to play and bet your luck on them.
    • By the way, you can certainly use the freeplay at all VP machines, regardless of short-pay or full-pay machines.

    WoF at Monte Carlo specifically had a sign saying you couldn't use FP. I played mine off at VP

    They have little stickers or plastic plates that will say you can't use free play on a machine if thats the case.

    You can't use it on any of the video table games where you can make offsetting wagers (IE: betting some on red and some on black on any of the electronic roulette games).

    After that it does seem like most, but not all, games with progressives have the stickers on them and I've found that Luxor seems to have a lot of stickers on a variety of different machines, some where it seems like it for no apparent reason (IE: there is no progressive and its a nondescript machine).

    For the OP I wouldn't really worry about it: these casinos all have 1800+ machines so its likely you will find something that interests you to use your free play on.

    This is accurate.

    But - it is not like they have signs or a list of leased machines available. Just sayin.

    Is it possible to convert freeplay to table play?

    Sometimes MGM casinos will, or the offer may even say that you can choose between slot or table play.

    If you really want to, you need to talk to someone before you go if you're talking about MGM properties. When you show up at an MLife booth, it will be freeplay if that's what your offer says.
