    Just updated the mobile app on Android. It looks like they have removed the loyalty points you get for the mystrip challenges. Booo.

    Wont bother with about 90% of the games on there now then. Payoff in chips is terrible for most of them.

    Thanks for the heads up. I just won't update, as I got LPs for a challenge this morning

    My Android phone forced me to update the app last night, but so far my Kindle Fire hasn't updated, so I'm able to continue earning LPs on there.

    Unfortunately, I don't think it is. Here's a reply on facebook from someone who asked about this issue:

    Unless they mean you can earn LPs much faster than before from just playing the game (more like the FB version), then this makes the mobile game almost useless.

    I quit playing the mobile version long ago because it wasn't worth the effort under the old setup. If they cut back on LPs on the mobile, it really doesn't make sense. It is much more valuable to them for you to play on Facebook instead?

    FWIW There are no updates yet for IOS. I'm still being awarded LP's for challenges. I had been taking a break from the mobile version but actually played today just in case this change is coming.

    And I completely agree. Without the LP bonus the mobile version as it is will be almost worthless.

    Makes no sense to play on the mobile version anymore. Don't get any LP for challenges or leveling up. Google play said they have to agree to the new current terms & conditions. Whatever that means? What a crock.

    Hmm, yeah, Google Play is littered with replies from MyVegas to bad reviews with this sort of language:

    In order to comply with the most current terms & conditions of our App Store partners, we have recently updated the way our game awards Loyalty Points. As always, there remains a number of ways to earn Loyalty Points whenever you play like wheel spin and daily play.

    Wish they'd explain exactly what they're referring to instead of being so oblique.

    Is it possible to install the previous version and still be able to redeem LP through challanges?

    I think all I am going to do with the mobile version now is get my daily free spin. If I get the LP's from there, then that is great. Otherwise I don't care if I get the chips since there is no reason to actually play the game anymore. Unless of course with a future update they increase the frequency of earning LP's from play. Also by following this strategy I should accumulate a decent stock of chips in case they do make future changes where playing the game is actually worthwhile again.

    I wondered why I was stuck at 86% on a challenge where I have to earn LP's. I guess it is impossible to complete unless they make a change. Moving on.....

    Can't believe they took the lp's away for leveling up. It really is worthless for the most part anymore.

    The mobile version makes it very difficult to get chips and LPs. I barely play it for that reason. It's kind of a waste of time like the Caesars Casino facebook game.

    I don't think the IOS version has been updated yet. I haven't recieved an update yet and there isn't one pending. I assume it will be coming tomorrow since it's probably tied up in Apples review process.

    Android apps can be updated a little easier I believe since they don't have the same review process that apple does.

    This makes sense to me.

    Welp, time to run through my chips to try and get the easy challenges before the update hits.

    I ran through all of my chips yesterday and finally busted after a good run. I cherry picked a lot of the quick challenges like the bet max or earn x amount of chips. Anything that looked like it would take awhile I skipped, like the find 400 of these challenges.

    So we'll see what comes tomorrow for IOS users.

    Bad thing is I don't think you can refuse the update and still play. I'm pretty sure when you sign in it forces you to update before playing.

    Yes. They are getting tons of marketing info off of you based on your location, likes, friends list, etc. Also free advertising when people (whether they know it or not) are posting to their walls and inviting friends to play.

    Too bad. I really enjoyed the mobile version before this, probably more than the standard PC version.

    I can't believe they took LP earnings out of the challenges. It's not like they ever gave you a ton anyway for them -- most challenges were 20-50 or so LP, but it made the game fun to work towards those. Working towards chips only feels pointless.

    Given that once you reach a high enough level, it often takes days and days just to fill the LP meter once, this has basically become just another slot machine app. I'm no longer motivated to play it other than to log in and collect my daily spin in the event they ever decide to bring LP back to mobile.
