    I'm not staying at a MLife property, so that eliminates some of the awards. But, with no shows or buffets, I'm not sure what to spend it on. Suggestions?

    MyKonami freeplays, if it still allows use without a hotel stay.

    I had a tough time picking out rewards for my cancelled trip. I usually pickup a show ticket, a buffet, MyKonami FreePlay, and usually a free drink at Alibi.

    How many LPs do you have, if you don’t mind sharing?

    I’m only asking because if your balance is in the low millions or less, the 100k cost of $25 freeplay is a pretty “meh” value IMO compared to simply saving the LPs for hotel stays on later trips. Considering 100k LPs can score a two-night hotel stay at some of the mid-tier properties, I think that's worth way more than $25.

    Of course, I'm saying that as a low-roller who barely qualifies for casino comps. If you have more than enough casino comps available to you, perhaps the Konami freeplay might be an ok value... but even then, why not at least have the option for some effectively free rooms (save for the resort fee) that you can give to travelling companions?

    I have been using 6 Konami free plays on every trip for the past couple of years. I still have 3 million chips.

    I got 4 myKonami free play rewards (Luxor, Aria, NYNY, Bellagio) for my trip this week. I have nearly 4 million LP even after dropping 400K on those. I also got the Madam Tussaud's comp adult admission for 50K (not a premium reward). It's not something I'd pay for out of pocket, but we're staying at V/P, so it's right outside the door. I figure it will kill a little time at least.

    You can do the roller coaster at NYNY too. I was able to get 2 using both the bogo reward and the one pass. 2 for 1 drinks are always a hit.

    Although it’s not a big points burn, the Toms Urban reward is hard to beat. Its a voucher, I can’t exactly recall but it might be for $21?, so if you use it during happy hour you will pay very little.

    Im looking at myvegas rewards and i don't see anything about free slot play.

    Also I just got my first comped room stay at the Mortgageirage for a weekend. Debating on using the remaining for 2 nights at Luxor or building up to 2 nights at NYNY. Any thoughts?

    You have to download the myKonami app to see those specific ones for purchase.

    Unfortunately you can't combine comped stays whether it's a Mlife offer or multiple MyVegas rewards.

    Prior to shutdown I always used my 5 rewards for $25 MyKONAMI slot play. It is the easiest way to blow lp's and get some value in return. Also you can casino hop and collect the konami freeplay at all the casinos the reward is at and then play it all at one location once it has been loaded to your mlife card.

    I recently took my parents to Vegas and did a Mandalay Bay>Luxor>Excalibur>NYNY MyKonami freeplay run. Both my parents turned their $100 to more than $100 so that was fun.

    Good luck and enjoy

    Sorry for the confusion. I am allowed 5 rewards because I bought lots of chips overall. If you spend $50 on chips you unlock a 4th reward. By default you have 3 rewards overall per 30 days on any premium MyVegas rewards.

    I always say go for the $50 in chips especially if you go multiple times a year. It can pay for itself by the second trip on just MyKonami freeplay alone.

    I had no idea you could do this. I’ve always just played the $25 at each casino. Definitely doing this on my next trip.
