    I got up to 600,000 coins, level 39 and the next challenge I got says bet 10% of your balance 10 times. So, the problem is that all my tables are high limits of 10K. So there is no way I can bet 10% of my balance. Do I have to wait until I lose 500k or get to a level that offers larger limits? Seems like a crappy way to stall my progress...

    I have the same problem and I have to think this is a bug that needs to be fixed asap.

    I have 2.7 million in chips at the moment and I think I have reached the highest limit possible (freebet, Circus Circus, 100K limit). Unless there is a higher limit that I don't know of, there is NO WAY to complete this quest (Mirage # 9). Yes I can try to lose my chips until I have less than 1 million but it just does not make sense. And betting three squares @ 100K each doesn't cut it either, I think it is asking for 10% of your balance on a single bet (1 hand).

    I only play this for fun as the MyVegas comps are no longer attractive to me, but it is still somewhat frustrating to have chips (and too much of it!!) but not being able to complete a quest. Hopefully the MyVegas Blackjack people sees this and fix it soon.

    If someone has a work around that doesn't involve deliberately losing your chips, please share..........my degenerate gambler instinct does not allow me to lose them just like that, hehehe.

    There is a new challenge down the line where you have to bet 20% of your balance 11 times.

    What a waste.

    I just bet the 100K and tried to split / double as much as possible, quickly lost a million and got to the point where I was betting 10% anyways and got past the challenge. I have run good since and back up over 2 million but not looking forward to the bet 20% one, that is a near guarantee to bust!

    I had 20 million at the 10% challenge. I had to lose 19 million on purpose to beat the challenge. Of course I then went broke. I'm now back over 10 million and dread the 20% challenge.

    Well it is good to know that I wasn't the only one with that had the issue. As it turned out, I ended up on a bad losing streak and got down to the 100K level and completed the challenge. Now have worked my way back to 400K. I agree they need to change when they present that challenge.

    Now I got on a hot streak, made it up to 1.9M chips, and got that 20% challenge you guys were talking about. Screwed again. Guess just playing for levels now. Argh...

    This post is a but old, but I recently figured out how to do these challenges and ywanted to share. Just put a bunch of money on the table in every game to reduce your balance. If you've unlocked everything up to Circus Circus, you can lay out over 5 million with max bets. You can bet as little as 2% of your initial balance and have that be 20-40% at the end. It's tedious, but it works.

    I joined this forum to get an answer to this because I have no where to go. level 130, over 5,000,000chips, all three stars up to #9 Mirage.
    I tried what I understand you are saying vegas_newby but as soon as I leave chips on the table to go to another game, they get returned to my balance.
    What am I missing?
    In the mean time, I will go back to slots :(

    I just hit a challenge that is bet 40% of your stack. I only have 200K so should not be a problem.
