    Very cool. Thanks for the heads up. I'll definitely be watching for that.

    This is very interesting. Thanks OP!

    It says it will include poker and video poker. Wha---? That would be great if true. I wonder if the loyalty points you earn will extend the expiration date of your normal My Reward boarding pass points?

    We hope it's as good as MyVegas! Knowing Stations Casinos, they will put out a solid product. Then we'll need to open a new StationPlay forum section for it.

    You are welcome! I am interested too. Although myVegas is watered down, I still play it since I actually like the games.

    I normally stay at Suncoast when I go to Vegas, and I hope Boyd would do something similar.

    Stations has a larger presence than Boyd in Vegas, but Boyd has a wider national coverage. I know Caesars made a half baked effort to get into the social gaming market, but nothing like what their biggest competitor (MGM) is doing.

    You are welcome! I wish myVegas had more than just blackjack; like Shufflemaster table games, but I think it is by licensing restrictions. I would think that if you want to prevent your Boarding Pass points from expiring due the 12 or 13 month inactivity, they would require players to make real money purchases for the in-game currency the game will be using. Not too long ago, Stations allowed cardholders to earn points for every dollar spent (depends on the type of purchase) on their Boarding Pass card.

    On another note which is different than Stations casinos, I also found out that you can earn points by buying in-game currency on Hollywood Casino social media casino for the Marquee Rewards club card, but there is no prize currency such as the loyalty points to redeem. I believe you can also prevent the expiration on Total Rewards Reward Credits by buying in game currency on certain social media casinos.

    I have high hopes for this too!

    Great news for those of us who aren't that fond of going to the strip! The only time we usually go there is to see a show or grab dinner that we earned on myVegas ~ hopefully StationPlay will be worth playing!

    Yes, but with the Playtika (CET) apps, the RCs you earn keep them (the RCs) from expiring, and CET is on a 6 month cycle.

    If you were referring to my post about CET RCs (Reward Credits), RCs are comp points and are spendable. I currently have 24,618 RC, which is the equivalent of $246.18 which can be used in a restaurant, on my hotel boll, or even converted to Free Play (at a premium). Most of the RCs were accumulated through gaming at a casino.

    However, RCs expire (entire balance zeroed out) if not replenished/added to in 6 months. Typically not an issue for me, since I visit a CET property almost every month, but for the person who only makes a gambling trip once or twice a year, it can "save" your hard earned RCs.

    I'm not sure why people keep bringing up Caesars in relationship to MyVegas. Caesars and all the other Playtika apps were about making money from online apps. I think if online gaming had been legalized, the expectation was that they would have online casinos already up and running. The tie in to Total Rewards is an afterthought but it's valuable because it's the fastest and probably cheapest way to earn a RC and keep your points active. They were never thinking about the MyVegas model. It was just a good investment in tech business.

    Caesars was brought up because of the new Stations game coming out. Will it be more like Caesars games or more like myvegas games.

    I think the only reason is because myVegas is mLifes "web presence" and Playtika is CET's web presence. At least, that's the way that I look at them. If either lost their association with mLife or CET, I wouldn't be playing/buying anymore.

    Probably neither. It will probably be like Hollywood's.
