    hi all,

    A friend of mine photographed the viva myvegas scans around the casinos and sent me a copy to save me walking around all of them looking for the scans......
    anyway, am here now in Mandalay Bay, but when scanning the codes, it keeps saying that i need scan the piece directly opposite the scan piece!!!!
    Anyone know a way round this, as an example, i'm using an Ipad which uses Wifi only..... not all casinos give you free wifi so the scan can lock your gps location.... ???

    When you scan the VIVA MyVegas Codes, you need to be next to the code in order for it to work. It is used as a protection barrier for people trying to get the codes from other places like outside of Vegas.

    The GPS is separate from WiFi, are you sure that is on?.. you sure they don't have wifi? Pretty sure most of the casinos do now. Or do you or any of your guests have an iPhone, you can just email the prize to whomever after you win.

    What prizes do you get from the Vegas scavenger hunt scans?

    Is it worth it to spend time on your vacation doing it?

    I mean, if I walked by one, of course I would scan it. But is it worth a 20 minute walk each way to get?

    It does a spin which you can win coins, loyalty points, or 1 of 3 real prizes. One of my spins landed on "Entry for 2 to minus5." The other 2 real prizes on that spin were 2 drinks at some hotel (don't remember) or tickets to Thunder from Down Under. I don't remember the real prizes on the other 2 spins that I had, but I got some coins for the game thru those other spins.

    You can also get another code if you eat at the Mirage Buffet. It will be on your receipt.
