    Pretty sure the only way to obtain hats is through play using coins "earned" through the bonus and reward boxes on the bottom. Or...which I've never done, through play from coins you've actually purchased. I don't think hats are earned on any coins won through your play. So if you win 5million coins on a slot, playing through these coins won't net you any hats.

    I'm only playing as a guest myself and don't link to facebook, and it works fine for me.

    I have been playing the app for a little over a month, never bought any coins, currently at level 18 and have almost 1500 hats and over 56 million coins. I get 10 hats from the third bonus each day, and through playing coins/points. I don't get any from watching videos, only the 100,000 coins each time. I don't have any " benny bucks" or other awards because I don't play a large bet. Usually 150,00 on 3 hand video poker and up to 100,000 on the slots.

    I'm honestly surprised at how "easy" it is to accumulate hats and thus redeemable prizes given how awful the video poker and table games rules are at Binions.
    Plan to redeem $30 at Bennys, $25 at the cafe, and 4 free drinks when we go in 2 weeks. Have almost another 1000 hats that I don't think I'll even be able to use. Too bad they don't have other prize options like free play or even match play for their terrible tables.

    I have almost 10000 hats. We used 8K in August at the steakhouse, and we will use another 8k again at the steakhouse next year. Not too shabby for only spending $3 for a one time buy.

    The 100,000 coins you get from watching an ad should get you 4 hats. If you have more coins or win on that 100k then it will take more spins to get them but still should end up with 4 hats by the time you run out of chips.

    Oh i see you have 56 million coins. They are spread through that 56 million. If you have 100k in coins from an ad and 56 million in "useless coins" provided you dont win you should get a hat roughly every spin of 15 million coins. My girlfried gets frustrated saying I never can play long enough on this game. I keep telling her its not about playing its getting the coins from the ads and going broke to get the hats.

    So true...you need to go broke to accelerate acquiring hats. That been my modus operandi.

    I am getting a hat about every 600,000 in coins, not 15 million. Whether playing slots or poker. At least that was last night and today.

    The point, I believe, was that the more chips you have, the more you have to wager to get the same impact on earning hats. So people who burn down their chips and watch vids can earn similar or more hats even though they keep going 'broke'

    There is definitely a curve to earning hats. Looks more like a cool down period to reduce the number of chips per hat, then a ramp up. Just tried on video poker and for about 5 hats, it was 400k per hat, then a couple at 450k, then 500k per hat.

    You only earn hats on chips from you buy, the bonuses and watching videos. If you watch a video and get 100,000 chips but win 10 million and play to zero . You will get the same number of hats as a person that played it and lost it all very quickly.


    Now if that 100K gets you 4 hats (just a number for example) and you lose it all before getting the 4 hats...it will still allow you to earn the hats...so if the next 100K lasts longer...and you earn 6 hats its because you ran out of chips before you ran out of chips before getting all the hats you had coming to you. The more you have coming to you , the more you will earn in a given spin, but it will slow down quickly. But bottom line, if you watch 10 videos and save the chips, or watch 10 videos and play them through each time...in the end the result is the same, But it likely wont feel like it. Make sure you get your 10 free each day and watch vidos/collect bonuses as often as possible...nothing else really matters

    Quick report on a recent trip:
    Was able to redeem all my comps through this app seemlessly at the players club, though it did take a few minutes. You only have 3 days to use after you redeem, I believe.

    Side story...for the free well drink coupon, show the bartender first. Wife did this once, asked for a Bacardi diet and the bartender gave it to her. Next time, she didn't show it, ordered the same thing, bartender got pissed off, threw the drink away and then asked her what well drink she wanted instead, then gave that to her. Uh.....wouldn't it have been easier (and cheaper for them) if they had just told her next time to order a "well" drink? Yes. It says it on the coupon, but she clearly showed it to another one before and he didn't balk. Besides, how much really is a bottle of Bacardi for a bar. 9? $10 on volume? Please.

    Another reason I don't gamble there.

    Almost got excited. Won $337 in Benny Bucks. Bought 20 million coin package and those coins don't earn hats.....useless.

    Can you redeem hats in Las Vegas or is it like MyVegas where some of the reward options disappear once they know you’re in town?

    Seen people say they've redeemed them while waiting in line at the Player's Club. I recall something about a special wifi just for people to use for the app.

    We redeemed a $100 Binions steakhouse prize while waiting in line in August, and used their wifi to redeem the prize on our phone...very easy. The girl at the desk was also very nice. She even gave us an additional 20% off steakhouse coupon which unfortunately the restaurant didn't accept...which I understood. Cheers!
