    So just logged in and had to restart because it wasn’t connecting to the server. Now, apparently, we get 1 little crown for collections?! Please tell me this is an error...

    Even worse, it now takes level 3 to get free rooms, so there will be no way to redeem without substantial spend.

    And Level 2 gold events are worth 2 crowns. Looks like this game has finally hit the point that it will require spend to get rooms.

    I am going to redeem for my two buffets and then that's it. Can't believe you now have to get to level 3 for rooms. Really?!!!

    Time to move on, for me. :grrr:

    I... what? This can't not be a bug. Are you kidding? I saw that this morning when I logged in, I just assumed it was a bug. 1 crown for gold chests and wheels, whopping 2 crowns for gold scratchers? Can you even keep level 1 without spending that way? If this isn't a bug, I'm pretty glad I never gave them money, though I'm not glad I wasted so much time on all the gems I have...

    Yesterday morning about 6am there was an in-game notification about an update that was supposed to happen yesterday. Then this morning I have a slight issue trying to log in and when able to get back in I see this. I check the boards here and someone already posting the same. I truly hope the amounts are incorrect and they are adjusted.

    For the record, I’m fine with VIP Level 3 to obtain rooms even though I’m currently only Level 2.

    Was a matter of time. Not worth it for people looking to get 1 night free, but the incentive/value is still there for people that plan to stay 2+ nights. Until they change it again...

    Same for me. I know that when I was going to redeem for my rooms that I would need to spend to get to level 2, but this is completely absurd, especially since they didn't change the points needed for levels. I hope even more people leave bad feedback on the app so the star rating goes even lower.

    Given the changes each cycle , I would not trust to buy vip points. They effectively killed the game. And they have betrayed trust with customer base.

    Everyone's waiting to see if it's a(nother) bad update and if this will stay or if it's a glitch. We'll see, I guess.

    yep.
    I would not panic yet.
    I am guessing just a bad IT department and things were screwed up.

    If it stays the way it is for a few days then I would probably just delete the app and cut any losses.
    I would be more upset if I had actually spent money rather then just time.

    My wife and I have 3 rooms booked for May and 4 for September. With this rediculous update we are concerned that this company isn’t going to be around much longer. We are trying to come up with a plan B to protect ourselves if they go belly up as the recent changes makes me think their business model isn’t working. Do any of you know if Wynn will honor reservations made via the app if they do go out of business before we use our reservations?

    As I understand, the wynn is directly in charge of the app so I think reservations should be good

    Brutal change if it stays. I did not even think about the fact that they may not honor reservations.

    They honor reservations made regardless of your in game level when you get there, so why would it be any different.

    I think someone above may be on to something. Those at higher levels will be pushed to lower levels within 90 days and continue downward. With nobody at a level to earn a free room unless they spend a significant amount in game they'll likely remove that perk all together. I did check on the purchase amounts and you still get the same vip points for each purchase so that really becomes the only way to move up or even keep status. Wondering if they changed the gems required per night yet?

    Wow this just killed the value for redeeming for anyone at level 0 or 1. My level 0 account with 12000 gems now has $0 effective value.

    It costs 20000 crowns to get level 3. That requires $280.00 (Canadian) spend to buy those crowns. Screw that just to redeem for a couple of buffets and room nights.

    Looks like after my first and only stay at Wynn via my wife's account we are going to switch back to redeeming for Aria and / or Bellagio on MyVegas and just paying the resort fees. Far less cost than getting screwed over by Wynn here.

    This has to be a glitch doesn't it?
    Why would anyone play this game given their new setup. Just a further stain on the Wynn name.
    Well done Wynn. The faith is lost (again) in your brand, and people will (again) make their decisions accordingly.
