    pays you by time now and not bet amount?

    there's a timed meter that gives you points once a certain amount of time elapses.

    does this meter move faster if you bet more? Or does it move at the same speed?

    sorry if I'm late.

    Are you playing on a Android device? I believe they had to make that adjustment on MyVegas, MyVegas Blackjack, and MyKonami to meet Google's platform requirements.

    On my game (android emulator on my pc), it doesn't matter what you bet. It runs at the same time. I do minimum bets and it lets me get about 5K loyalty points a day. I collect more free chips daily than I lose playing!

    That is correct, the loyalty points timer will run at the same speed regardless of your bet.

    Also, I just checked my Android device and it looks like Pop! Slots recently switched over to the timer based LP system too.

    Of course they did this while I have literally billions of chips in both MyVegas and MyKonami. I had assumed they just did this in all the games, but if it was a google play thing, did they not make the changes in the facebook versions?

    I haven't had the mobile games on my phone in awhile, but I seem to recall there were differences with the Google Play and Amazon versions at one time.

    Might be worth a look to delete the game and add it from the Amazon store to see if LP collection is different.

    Facebook versions are not on a timer as of this morning. From what I understand, this is specific to Android devices.

    The "platform requirements" appear to be that redemption for real-world prizes/gifts/goods using a type of credit in the app that one only accrues from activity within the app (LPs in the MyVegas games; hats in the Binion's app; crowns in the Four Queens app; gems in the Wynn slots app [1]) cannot be directly tied to in-app purchases. One cannot directly purchase LPs (or hats/crowns/gems), but one can purchase (or get for free -- often through ads [2]) coins that can be used to play the game.

    It's complicated. I think that the gambling-like user interaction with the apps relative to in-app purchases is the gray area.

    I have the MyVegas Blackjack app from the Amazon Appstore for this specific reason. As of yesterday, I still rack up a lot of LPs daily (up to the daily limit) just from playing.

    [1] The Wynn slots app had VIP points added as an additional gate to accessing redemptions. In a phased approach, it was made to be almost impossible to earn just from app activity (playing the game) enough VIP points to maintain a VIP tier that gives access to redeem anything. The ongoing closure of the Wynn Buffet simply allows the app developer to not need to either remove the reward from the app or make other changes to make the buffet reward -- like the hotel rooms -- unattainable without making a purchase that grants redemption access. Further discussion of this warrants another thread.

    [2] The MyKonami app on Android, as downloaded from Google Play, still gives away both coins and LPs for viewing ads. The MyVegas slots app from Google Play only gives coins for viewing ads. However, keep in mind that the earning (or giving away, through ads) of LPs now has absolutely nothing to do with in-app purchases (which is specifically why the real-life rewards have not yet gone away).

    Is there a daily limit on LPs now with this timed approach?
