    Has anybody bought chips for Comp City? I wonder if buying $20 worth would allow me to earn 1,600 tickets in short order to get the second half of what’s needed for the LVA membership... would be a decent discount at least :)

    Do NOT buy chips. Complete waste of money and hardly nets any tickets. Speaking from experience.

    I would think they will give us more notice for the apps that require an in-person redemption. That and they just released the QQQQ app past year.

    Agreed, but we only travel to Vegas once or twice a year these days. They could give a nine month notice and we could be SOL.
    Plus, what is to stop them from giving a one month notice? just sayin.

    I think they would face a huge backlash if they shut down the app without giving enough notice. Unlike LVA, Binion's and QQQQ have to answer to the Gaming Control Board. Based on their reaction to their motherlode promo, I think they will keep it going as long as possible and give every opportunity to cash out what users have earned if they decide to shut down the app.

    So...did get an answer from COMP CITY to my situation anyway.

    "Upon examination of your Comp City app account, our analysts have discovered exploitation of a malfunction that resulted in the inappropriate awarding of coins, tickets and/or prizes.
    Accordingly, your account has been reset and locked. If you have any questions, please respond directly to customer support at [email protected]."

    And that's that.

    I just got the same email. Frustrating as i have spent a year saving up and they send it out enmasse it seems. I did email them. I redeemed two memberships about a week ago hoping I can get something.

    I’m not expecting anything, but I will be quite annoyed if we get absolutely nothing. Me, my oh and my dad have been accumulating credits for the MRB. OH actually had enough for five years MRB if it continued. He has redeemed for the coffee table book and a couple of other gifts, but still has a lot of tickets to spend in the next few days.

    I think we all see where this is going.

    If they refuse the redemption, I’m considering disputing the charge for the chips I bought. How can you advertise an app that awards real prizes, when you won’t award those prizes? Makes no sense.

    It’s crazy to see this and makes me think they are being overwhelmed with requests when they truly hoped people would forget any redemptions and just move on from it. How many folks will then feel like other gaming apps will turn the screw to them in the future and refuse to play (or pay for any purchase in the game) if you won’t be able to collect prizes therefore making the game become extinct?

    I get this is a business decision, but I guess gives legitimacy to only playing those affiliated directly with a hotel/casino chain. But how long before those may be gone? Might be time to make plans for an exit strategy for sooner rather than later just in case.

    My theory is that free slot games of Las Vegas was unable to sell ads since I can’t remember the last time I watched an ad in the app. Must be pretty awkward though since though since LVA/Huntington Press is the publisher of all of the app developer Olaf Vancura’s books.

    I’m kind of surprised that they didn’t just water down the prizes like MyVegas did rather than just killing the app completely with 2 weeks notice.

    Basically got the same response from them too. I have emails from Comp City to confirm the purchases. Will be interesting to see how this fleshes out.

    I am glad this app didn´t work on my Samsung S8+, so I deleted it before starting playing.

    I have three confirmations that my rewards would be redeemed, including a second coupon book and the ultimate package. Let's see how this shit show plays out.

    I think now is the time to send out our "There is nothing to 'verify'... please send the prizes as promised, or a transaction dispute for chip purchases will be lodged" emails... which is especially important because the longer they take to "verify" whatever nonsense, the greater the chance it could be too late to lodge a dispute. I wouldn't wait, personally.

    You guys would probably be better off emailing Anthony Curtis as I don’t think the customer service rep has much say in anything.
