    The higher you get in levels and hats, the longer it takes to get a hat. I am over level 100 and it takes over a 50-100 million to get 1 hat on Binions. Just like Myvegas, higher level more play needed to get lp

    I'm over level 300 and I think the issue is not level but how many coins you earn. When you earn coins through daily promos or watching ads, those allow you to get a certain amount of hats. Try watching an ad then betting 50k/hand. Usually you can get ~5 hats per ad.

    When I went from level ~20 to 300+ I didn't earn a single hat but I also didn't watch any ads or get coins through bonuses at the time. As soon as I got a bonus then I started earning hats again.

    So an optimal strat is to watch an ad, get hats until the thing barely moves, repeat. I have ~4500 hats currently from doing this.

    Does anyone know how to redeem the Benny Bucks? I have ~$50 in Benny Bucks, but I see no way to apply them to purchases.

    Maybe click on the bar next to the silver hat to bring up the items? Idk, but that's the only way I've been able to see what items are available.

    The Benny Bucks are used to buy chips. If you click on a chip purchase, it will ask you how you want to pay for it (either paypal or Benny Bucks). When you use Benny Bucks, you do not get silver hats as part of the purchase (they do tell you that as well, and I have no idea how many hats you get when using real money, I only used my Benny Bucks - but I don't know anything they are good for anyway).

    I got clarification from Olaf on their support team. Apparently you can't combine the Benny Bucks with cash, so since I only have $52 in Benny Bucks, I can only buy chip packages UP TO $52 with them.

    Olaf is a fountain of information. I've enjoyed our correspondence.

    Some of the slot machines has goals on the left hand side. Complete the goals and you'll get them. In the Benny's Billions it starts at $500 in benny's bucks and each spin reduces the amount. If you complete the goal, which I think is getting 5 of a kind of every object in the machine, before it hits $0 you get that much in Benny's Bucks. Higher coin spins reduce the $500 at a slower rate.

    I'd go for the T-shirt. They seem to be in really short supply at Binion's and will probably only increase in value as a collector's item.

    If you play every day a couple times per day, you should be able to get 4,000 "hats" which you can cash in for a $50 comp.

    Sounds like I should go to Olaf the Great but does any know what the terms are for combining vouchers among multiple players? My friend and I are hoping to get Binion's steakhouse vouchers but probably can only both earn the $100 voucher before our trip and not the $200 one. Anyone know if we can eat together and have the vouchers added together like I've seen with some myvegas rewards and vouchers at The D? Thanks!

    I thought I saw somewhere that if you show the app at the slot club that you will get some free slot play. Anyone know?

    The Binions mailer I got for this quarter had an extra $10 in slot play if I showed them I had the app installed. Not sure if it was for everyone

    You can earn more hats the more videos you watch. In addition to the "Reward" option in the lower left hand corner of the game, it gives you the option to watch another ad in the slot machines if your coin balance is less that the bet selected. Rinse and repeat multiple times per day. Doing this diligently can net you ~175 hats per day. 1,200 hats = $15 comp, 4,000 hats = $50 comp, 8,000 has = $100 comp. I play Bonus video poker - I think it has the best return.
