    I have been playing this game for a month now. It seemed like the rewards were better a month ago. Now, many of the rewards are gone/removed and the few decent ones left are always sold out!

    I have seen more rewards removed and far less new rewards added! You would think with more players and increasing popularity that this game would feature more rewards (not less!)

    For those who have been around longer than me.. Is it common for reward choices to go up and down? Do you think more reward choices will be listed soon? It just seems like a pretty low selection right now!

    This game can be fun but if the rewards don't improve, I have little reason to keep playing.
    Anyone else out there feeling like me? Just wondering when/if we will see some better options...

    It does seem like they are vanishing and the lp amount is skyrocketing. It seems like someone realized that they are giving away too many rewards. It's going to be really hard to get those good rewards going forward as there are so few of them.

    Yes, the rewards come and go. They only can give away what mlife gives them to give away. You have to be on your computer constantly clicking in and out of the reward you want between 7 and 7:10 am Vegas time. The rewards were better at the beginning of the game and during the winter (slower time of year). The busiest time of the year is coming up now for Vegas...they don't need to be giving away things right now. They only seem to have 10 or less of each reward at a time. Lets face it, if they were unlimited every person checking in to the Mirage would have a free Tower suite booked. They come and go and yes, get more expensive. I am holding out on 1 of my rewards until closer to my trip just in case something new comes out that I want. It is a way of getting people into their properties. I don't spend a dime on the game, and have always played FB games anyway...so it has been a no brainer for me. Just set it at a low bet amount and put it on auto while you are doing other things. I am personally happy with whatever I can get for free. I only go once a year and I am not a high roller, so it is working out great for us. My husband and I both play and I created an acct for my MIL who is coming with us this trip. That is 9 rewards for letting my slots run while I clean the house...not a bad deal from the way I look at it.

    Free is free.

    The good rewards come and go, and as Tammy said. they'll always be slightly better in the offseason. And the game is new, they are still working on the balance of how much they need to provide to keep people playing.

    Some of the better deals may disappear, but I actually like that they've added flexibility with more weekend night awards.

    You don't have to hold out on the last one - if there is something you want now, you can get it as your third reward, and then if somethng better comes along you can call the number listed on the reward confirmation, cancel the one you want the least and have them refund your LP's to your account. Then you can purchase the new reward.

    I just did this recently for my upcoming trip - I canceled one of the three rewards I had reserved so I could get something better instead.

    :cuss::cuss::grrr: I have been trying to get the Tender reward for the last month on the weekends which is the only days I have access to FB in the morning when they reload and today I noticed it was gone. ARE YOU F>>>>>ING KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!! That was the main reason I have even been playing the game to be honest, now I have 100K+ in LPs and really nothing much I want to spend them on. Screw you, guys, I'm going home :grrr::grrr::grrr::grrr:

    In essence, it is a FREE game and I can imagine with all the friending going on they found that people were getting large lp's and as it goes with increasing demand comes increasing prices (in this case increasing lp's. Sorry, but you can't get something of value for nothing.

    How long did it take for the LP's to get credited back to your account?

    Please don't take this as a personal attack because it is not, but people need to stop using "It's a FREE game" to justify the decisions of MGM and MyVegas.

    It's not free. It takes a considerable amount of time to rack up 100k LP's. I figure I get about $2 an hour back in comps. Your right, in that Bubba may not be out of pocket. But I am sure he values his time. And it's not like MGM and MyVegas did not get anything out of his playing. Between adding friends, sharing and liking, MGM gains huge exposure and when they start pulling comps, or making them almost impossible to redeem, people are justified in feeling a little ripped off.

    The problem is there are far too many people who are abusing the system and taking advantage of what used to be generous offers. I am sure when this came out it was intended to subsidize and encourage people to come and try MGM services. It was NOT intended to give people a free vacation at MGM's expense.

    I haven't paid anything out of pocket for my rewards. But when I redeemed the free rooms, I played in their casino. When I claimed the F&B credits, our party still bought an additional $100 worth of food on top of the credit. It's the people who are redeeming rooms and playing elsewhere, and spending exactly $75 of their $75 comp that are going to ruin this opportunity for everyone.

    Almost every reward I redeemed is gone now (luxor tower 1 and 2 nighters and boyz II men).

    But I guess they think they made up for it with weekend nights at Lux and Ex in downgraded rooms.

    Let's hope that this is an end of March/ End of quarter, wait to restock everything.

    This is the best deal I have ever seen, for those of us who are retired and have time to plug away at it.

    It would be sad if the great rewards didn't come back.

    I direct 90% of my Strip time to MGM properties now instead of 30%. If others are doing this, MGM is making a ton.

    Just looked and they brought back the Monte Carlo $50 F&B credit.
    It is now locked until level 80 and cost increased from 25K LP to 35K.
    So looks like it's what people have been saying they are going to try to make it harder for people to get these rewards. We had it to easy...lol ;-)

    It was good while it lasted!
    Good thing I got everything I wanted for the most part for my trip in April. Will just have to see how it will pan out for future trips.

    At 75,000 plugging away for a steakhouse was worth it, now, not so much. I'll just take my one reward, log in and collect chips until I go and then call it a day. Instead of a night at Tender I'll go to Joe Stone Crab at Caesers. At least I am not tied down as much.

    Well more and more people are playing and earning a lot of points. Besides for a completely free game these awards are HUGE I would say... I cashed in 3 a few weeks ago, probably $250 worth of free stuff for just playing a game. I think it's awesome! It was well worth the hour or less I play a day.

    It's awesome to get free $200 show tickets, or a free suite, or a $150 dinner. Some of the awards were kind of ridiculous. I mean giving you a free $300+ a night tower suite for minimal work. I don't blame them for raising it in all honesty.

    What does the Caesars game give you 1 reward credit? lol.

    I won't complain because it's FREE, nothing to lose, it's pretty easy to get something, even if it's not a huge extravagant award.

    Glad I started this game in the early stages will be in vegas first weekend in may for 2 nights at the Aria then move to the tower suites at mirage for 3 nights from myvegas 135k points also have front row sec 103 zumanity tickets for May 5 and Love tickets in Section 207 on May 6th about 300k LP total for everything and $5 for a chip package to get a 4th reward the aria nights are comped with freeplay and F&B and the rest is under the card of my wife so they dont even know i will be there the last 3 nights when we use the myvegas rewards.

    Should make for a nice 16th anniversary and since she doesnt gamble anyway it wont hurt her offers and mine should not be effected for low/no play. The rewards are becoming less and less desirable do to the increased LP cost and lack of nice rewards.

    Yet another brilliant idea by mgm that they figure out in about 2 seconds is costing them way more than they expected so they clamp down and piss everybody off. Sounds like ECs and easy Noir and...
