    What amounts are we at waiting for the next double LP / XP?

    I'm at 1.1 million.

    I started hoarding a few days ago, need to pick up some bigger winnings on the spins though, currently on 140K chips.

    I'm still patiently hoarding, but it seems they are spreading the double LPs/XPs out more.

    I've gotten lucky with hitting the max spin twice in a week(123+k each time), and am now up to about 1.5 mil chips. Started hoarding on May 20th at 17k chip; only had a short time to play the last double XP since, but lost no chips in the process.

    I've been sitting 863 chips short of level 142 since the last double XP, presuming that the next double up is LPs.

    I have 60,470 LPs. I had 54k 5 days ago and have only increased that by collecting from the strip and friends and the daily spin and stuff. But I need to get 99k to cash in for an Aria room before early-to-mid July, so if there is no double something or other after this next quest I'll probably be forced to start playing anyway. In the meantime I'm crossing my fingers to hit the 750 LPs times the multipliers on the daily spin. I'm way overdue for that one.

    I've tried to take a more measured approach to the game. I aim for a total of 1,000LP per day. First, see if the spin hits an LP wedge -- if it does its always 250, resulting in about 2,000LP after all is added up -- then I just collect on my strip a few times a day and see how many LP collect that way. Toward the end of the day, I try to make it up in spinning. It does seem as if they've gotten "hip" to the hoarding and are making the double LP and XP days fewer and further between. I think getting 30,000 LP minimum a month (actually usually more like 50,000) this way fulfills my OCD tendencies, while not going overboard on a game that really doesn't have the value it used to when it first started.

    Also, I've started to "bag" trying to get small rewards. We travel to Vegas 2-3 times a year, and I find that more often than not we come home without using them. Hotel and show rewards can be redeemed from home more easily. I'm not much of a gambler, so we aren't comped rooms by any of the resorts unfortunately.

    I'm hoarding, and I have 6.4M. But if double LP comes next week, those chips will be put on the line from betting 49.5k per hand of blackjack.

    Why 49.5 instead of 50k?

    I have somewhere in the neighborhood of 8.6 million chips. I haven't had much time to play lately but I still make an effort to get on and collect from the strip twice a day.

    Takes 4 hands to fill a gold coin instead of 3 at 50k. I'll be playing enough to reach the daily LP cap through play either way.

    I'm new to this game (just 3 months), but that's a new one on me. My guess is you've had some real success with the puzzle games most have not?

    I think my daughter and her husband are the biggest chip hoarders that I have seen. Little free time to play and don't want to invest too much time into the game since they aren't headed back to Vegas until 1st part of 2015. I asked her to send me a screen shot. It appears that the picture does not show for everyone. Daughter has 21,651,895 red chips (366,290 LPS) and her husband 17,101,288 red chips (314.872 LPs)

    they are the first people I've ever heard of that hoard more than my SO. He has around 18.5 mil and hardly ever goes below 15 mil.

    I have 1.2 mil LPs and he has 600k LPs.
