    Are you playing more or less during this isolation period? Even though I have more time to play I still find myself playing much less due to the recent rules changes taking away the incentive
    to spend the time to play.

    I’m playing almost none because I’m over the gem cap and you get virtually no VIP points for events anymore. I’ll still play the special holiday platinum events that give 30 VIPs, but that’s about it.

    That paywall killed off a lot of interest

    The fact your thread is the first activity on this forum for well over a week answers your question I think. They would be cashing in if the old rules still applied as we would all be playing with nothing better to do. Instead it’s just a waste of time. Wouldn’t surprise me if the next message we get on the app is saying they are closing it down to be honest.

    I'm still playing, although I must admit I think I'm seriously addicted. But I have been playing more MyVegas lately as well. I still find value as I have two nights booked in August (fingers crossed) and I really don't mind gradually spending $200 over the course of three months—piggy banks, a multiplier here and there—to get 2 nights at the best hotel in Vegas.

    I played yesterday for the first time in a couple weeks to max out my gems. Now I’m done.

    Been playing MyVEGAS a lot more lately...

    I deleted the app it was fun while it lasted but I heave better things to do with my time. Kind of sad Wynn not even getting money via this app while they are closed.

    The biggest deterrent for me is the level increasing that makes you eventually bet 25,000,000 credits to get just one gem. In my business we rewarded our customers for loyalty. The decision makers for this game punishes their customers with the levels that continue to require more credits and time played per gem. This is the opposite of what just about every other business does. The main reason this bothers me so much is it increases the time required to earn a reward. I just don’t want to dedicate so much of my time to a casino app. The thought of turning in all my gems that took me months and many hours of play to earn for rooms or buffets and then having to start over at a 100+ level. Add the insult to injury of now having to pay $200 to use the gems that took so much time to earn.

    I still play but only a couple of quick games a day whereas I was playing almost every scratcher event and had done solidly for 3-4 months.

    After the updates (no coincidence?) I also hit a crazy run of poor form / luck and my bankroll went from around 6 billion down to around 15 million. I’m refusing to buy to get my way back up and I’ve tried to do it through Hong Bao Hyper but it’s been terrible - with me profiting in less than 10% of games (I’ve tracked win rate for over 150 games now). If the win rate was higher I’d naturally bet more but now I’m stuck in a rut virtually treading water on a minimal bankroll.

    I don't play for a while, then punt my bankroll at L4 everytime I get 100m or so. I ran 50m up to 1.4b this weekend, and will probably have a punt with that through the week while I'm having lunch etc.

    In the same boat as most, and don't have any reason to play now, so not committing any time, and the only upside of scratchers being worthless is you can just gamble whenever you please, lol.

    Still churning away - I have about 6 billion left and 13,000 gems in the bank but my late May trip will be cancelled I expect by the Wynn so I would expect a refund back to nearly the 25,000 limit but at level 133 it’s painful anyway to earn anything in terms of gems - now would I pay the current going rate of $200 to use them in the future - well no I wouldn’t as I can stay at V/P mlife and ceasers for nothing with add ons

    Is 25 million per gem the max that it goes or does it go beyond 25 million per gem?

    It's become dire in every sense of the word. As mentioned above its just a matter of time before it's pulled.

    Was never going to be great forever. It's pretty shit for anyone that was late to the party, unlucky to miss out on the EM escapades like myself. Or anyone that was late and missed EM.

    I was early enough to get a couple discounted stays in '19, and hopefully can get a couple in '20, but was under no illusion it would become very tough, very quick.

    Hardly Dire in every sense of the word, but it's definitely not free anymore, lol.

    I calculate that with about a $6 spend—if you play the scratchers routinely and the gold chest and wheel spin—a player could get two buffets which normally run about $50 each (a $100 value for only $6). So, amidst all those who have given up on this game, I still think it has quite a bit of value for a new player. Even if you went all-in and spent the $200 to book two nights you'd still be getting a great discount since rooms are generally about $200 per night with resort fees and in many cases quite a bit more.

    Not playing at all. Afaic, Wynn and the apps creator can ride this situation straight to hell.

    -And on edit, go read their latest round of excuses on Google Play reviews.
