    Whenever I hit a level where I start collecting "V's" to build a casino, I drop to a minimum bet and try to run through it as fast as I can. (usually Lucky Birds) My theory is that the "V" gets in the way of other symbols and effects higher payouts.

    Does the amount you spend to earn a casino matter? IE do you earn more daily coins from a property if you bet $1k instead of 40 chips per spin?

    Your strategy is the most effective, keep grinding away at the min bet, it's definitely the way to go. Lucky Birds built all my casinos that way.

    I used the same strategy as you when I was building my hotels.

    Doesn't matter, but I find I get more chips from harvesting my full strip than I do from playing (just clicking on MGM you can get 200 lps! 1000 from leveling up, It would take a TON of spins to earn that). So when I can I usually bet a 1000 to level up and build as fast as I can. (earlier levels it's harder but once you get farther in the game the chips flow easier)

    I've gotten 1000 from MGM at least five times.

    Quickest way for me was minimum bets on Bet the Farm... Vs seemed to come at a much higher rate than any other game.

    I did bets of 200 on Lucky Birds the whole way, and now have the full thing built. To be honest, now that the full strip is built the game is getting a bit boring :eek:

    You're probably luckier than me then. My g/f and I have only got it 1 or 2 times each that we've noticed and we almost always collect MGM 2X minimum a day. Sometimes I don't always notice what I end up getting though. And yeah, when I was building long long ago they did seem to come up a lot on "Bet the Farm".

    Also a good idea is to coordinate the times when you finish buildings, so that all the properties become due at a convenient time for you. For example, if your most convenient time for you to collect is around 9:30 pm, try to finish your properties in such a way where they become due at 9:35 pm, so you can easily "double dip". Keep in mind though that myVegas collections don't adjust with daylight savings.

    And to remind everyone, the properties reset with the following time periods:
    Monte Carlo, Circus Circus, NYNY: 2 hours
    Mirage, Excalibur, Bellagio: 4 hours
    Luxor, Aria, Mandalay Bay: 6 hours
    MGM Grand: 8 hours
