    Is there a short timed double XP/LP event going on right now? I only have about an hour free to play this morning and don't want to kill an opportunity if it's another one of those 3 or 4 hour events(once you log on) like last week.

    Oh, thanks much. For some reason I thought it would have ended at midnight. I've been hoarding and avoiding these puzzles.

    I have a trip to Vegas planned in 41 days. If I could wait I would. Trying to max out the LP. Will start hoarding after the trip. Been playing about 2 months. Already got the $25 NFI credit, Free Lunch Buffet at Aria, and BOGO on the 2 day monorail pass (Out there 4 full days). Hoping to get it up to 50k LP and snag either the $50 NY NY drink credit or the $100 at MC. At 12k LP as of now.

    This is interesting. We're in the same boat in some areas, but taking it on differently.

    I've got a trip in 40 days and as of 3 days from now I'll have been playing this game 3 months. I've redeemed 2 midweek comp nights at the Aria and need to snatch one more. I'm back up to a little over 54k LPs, so I need 45k more.

    I got down to 17k chips on May 20th and with one exception have been again hoarding since then (I luckily moved up 4 levels on the last double XP day without losing any chips).

    These last 13 days of hoarding has gotten me back up to over 1 mil chips as of this morning, so if there's going to be a double day tomorrow I think I ought to make some good strides towards getting those last 45k LPs, then I'll figure out how to close out the rest (hoarding for a bit or playing through).

    I am comped 5 nights at Harrah's so I didn't have to try to get one of the hotels. I moved up 3 levels on the last Double XP day (Currently up to Level 70). I think my biggest issue is actually getting either of the rewards before they sell out. If I can't get them I will probably get another buffet, either at Bellagio or Mandalay Bay

    Ha, even more in common. I've got 3 nights comped at the Mirage, so we're doing 6, total.

    Good luck, I'm sure you'll easily kick ass!

    Just thought I'd update my status with this, in case anyone is interested..

    I finally started playing again during the double LPs a couple days ago. My memory's a little fuzzy, so my figures might be a little bit off, but it went something like this.:

    As I said above I needed to get to 99,000 LPs to get one last(my third) night at Aria before our July trip.

    I started the double LP at level 141 and finished at 153 the last night of the double LP.

    I also started the double LP at 67k LPs and finished short of my goal, winding up with over 94k LPs(also accumulating some through the strip and friends). I had about 110k chips left that night, but my internet connection was through my cell phone hotspot and it was running too slow to play blackjack(the only game I thought might safely get me to the next level that night), and I was entering a level needing 1.6 mil XPs, so I held off until the next morning when I could at least start earning 2000 chips through the "meter" again just in case I fell short of leveling up.

    The next morning I went up one more level and literally ran out of chips with 14 of the 15 balloons or whatever they were on the last challenge. At that time I had about 96.6k LPs, or about 2400 short of the 99k I needed and no chips to play with, just waiting on one last shot from a couple hotels I could collect from.

    While waiting my Daily Spin came up and I finally hit the 750 LPs x 8+, giving me 6300+ LPs, and pushing me over the 99k I needed. I really felt I was overdue for that, so it's ironic that it would come at the very end of my efforts.

    At the end of the night I saw the email from myVegas gifting us 5000 chips, and within about 4 spins I got the last balloon, anyway, giving me the additional 750 LPs and 90 something thousand chips for completion.

    Anyway, I started the double LP with just over 2.3 million chips I'd been hoarding, and to be honest I was disappointed I only went up 12 levels during the double LP. I had some of my worst luck with most every game I've had since I started this thing. So I'm really curious how I would have done had I started playing daily after I acquired about a few hundred thousand chips or so.
