    Default myVegas game on Facebook

    Not sure how many are familiar with this game, but a good dozen of us have been playing for awhile, and I thought it was worth bringing up. For those unfamiliar with it, it is a free facebook game that offers real rewards via a partnership with the MGM hotel/casino chain. There are tons of FB casino slot games out there, but this is the only one im aware that allows you to trade your coins for real rewards like: hotel stays, food credits, cirque shows, and lots more. All the Vegas MGM properties are involved. You have your choice of playing some slot games or blackjack.
    Basically as you spin the slots, you can win coins (for more play) or 'V' (for Vegas) symbols, the V symbol allows you to build your virtual strip which has the MGM hotels on them, as you build each one, once completed they will give you bonus coins- a set amount every so many hours. Getting the strip completed takes awhile, but once its done- you get quite a few coins throughout the day to allow you to play quite abit.

    I could be here all day explaining every nuance of the game,but I going to concentrate now on the people already playing(feel free to ask ? here though if your unsure.)

    [B]Random Tips[B]

    There are 2 FB pages that go into greater detail and I highly reccommend. myVegasfriends and myVegasfriends and deals both setup by fans, but the 1st is visited by one of the
    programmers and he does step in and answer questions occassionally.(both should be easy to find via FB search, and myVegasfriends has a .com website too, but it doesnt get as much
    traffic, atleast the last time i checked)

    To maximize your coins make sure you 'like' the myvegas page, and add as many 'friends' as you can. Now both sites I mentioned above have 'add me' threads, where you can just post on there and other gamers will add you as a friend. FB doesnt distinguish these strangers from RL people, so realize that whomever you add will see your fb page/posts (and vice versa). Ive added over 140 new 'friends' which means my FB homepage is spammed with game updates (no way around that) but I have set my security settings so that they cant see anything from me other than game related info. It also means my email gets alot of msgs from the 2 pages- but again, you can change your settings to not get notifications/emails from them- just depends on how involved you want to be in the game/community. If you go this route- just realize you will get alot of requests for friends,DONT deny them- they end up in FB jail, you can unsubsribe at any time, or just go thru the list of recent posts and add them yourself. Im still getting requests weeks after adding 50+, its a large community out there!
    My FB homepage isnt pretty, I wish i had set up a seperate account just for this game (if you chose this option, note you can have 2 accounts-but you need 2 emails, and you cant play myvegas from both), this wouldve saved my FB from all the game info-but IMHO its worth it for the free rewards im earning.

    Once you get 53 friends, you've maxed out your 'daily friend bonus' @300% BUT the more friends you have, the more gamefeeds you recieve (and why Im over 140 friends), these shared feeds allow me to get 50k coins/ 24hr time period (the max). The ingame gifting of 50coins and 5 loyalty poins (both max out at 20friends/day) are not included in the 50k limit.

    Collecting Game Feeds
    If youre going all out (as I am) you have to download the FB app called 'game feeds' or 'all bonus collector' Its a quick DL, i use gamefeeds(which works for most FB games) then with a few clicks it will automatically collect all the 50/101/201 bonuses that your friends have shared. You can just set it to collect, and comeback to it later and all those bonus coins are added to your total.
    Also the myvegasfriendsanddeals site will post coin sharing threads- basically theyve got copies of all the links from their page, that you can quickly click on and get those bonuses as well(dont need gamefeeds app).If you hold down the CTRL button and left click- it will open in a new window, once youve clicked on them all- you just close all the new windows (atleast on IE, not sure about firefox or any other browsers) This is actually quicker than gamefeeds, most of these coin share threads are 1k-5k coins at a time mostly via 101/201 coin bonuses.

    cont...
    Dont forget to send coins to your friends- its quicker to use the friend tab on the game console, rather than clicking on the figures walking down the strip(mine looks like the 4th of July/NYEve all at once!)
    On the rewards tab, pick a reward and click on the 'share with FB' link- this will send it to your friends for a nice 201 chip bonus.

    The daily spin bonus wheel, is predetermined- you can change the starting point (by clicking on a different wedge) but it wont change what youre going to get (its a security feature they have built in), and note that the higher levels mean better wedge totals and the LP's are multiplied too (still havent hit it yet thought)

    myvegasfriendsanddeals has a help guide (under the files tab) that includes betting strategies for those just starting, those at mid level, and those with a completed strip.
    ie- when youre starting- you want lots of spins to quicken your building pace, once your built up- you want maximum LP's for you wager (which is 1k/spin)
    They also cover which games give you better odds etc, they are NOT equal- the farming game is a dud unless youre betting absolute minimum.

    Bonus Rounds
    For the bonus rounds in game, betting low and then raising your bet just before you qualify for a bonus round- doesnt really work. Your average bet (over atleast the last 10 bets) is used- hence why you see some odd payouts in Excalibur and Jewels games. For lucky birds, if you gain a bonus bird while betting 200/spin, when its activated any bonus will pay as if you were still betting 200/spin, regardless of what youre currently betting.
    To activate the 'large win posting' that you can share with your friends, you have to win 16x your bet, you can trick the system though by betting really low, then raising your bet- again it uses the average bet over 10 spins to determine if its a large enough win.

    The game is still in its 'beta' form- lots of bugs/issues- but theyre on top of it. Having the actual programmers on the friends site is a great resource. I would probably play this game even if there were no real rewards, but nowhere near to the extent I am now.
    Ive been playing since mid August with just over 90k LP's, but with the recent changes, Im now gaining over 2k LP's/day for 3 weeks!

    If you have any questions- fire away, I will try and answer them, if youre already playing and need more friends- send me a request!

    PM me if you want to add me as a FB friend and cant find me.

    Darrin, you might want to put your FB address on that post so people can friend you and then send you an invite.

    Good info. I'm at 95k LP's. You're going to pass me any day!

    If you are playing this game, please send me a PM with your facebook name so I can send you a friend request. You can also send me your friends FB name and I will invite them also.

    Darrin,

    Can you post direct links to the sites you mentioned? I am having a hard time finding them. Also, is there a way to see the names of people playing My Vegas so you can randomly invite some as friends?

    Steve, In the FB search bar, you type in myvegas friends. I think it has a pair of dice as an icon. Anyway, here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/fr...vegas/?fref=ts

    Hopefully, that works. You'll see that most of those poeple are begging for friends. Be careful with this. As Darrin said:

    1. You don't know who they are and they will have some access to your page (you may have to tighten up your privacy settings).

    2. You will be inundated with Myvegas announcements/chip requests.

    Thanks Lori...Maybe I'll wait from responses from the group. That may be safer.

    That's what I've done. I have 36 friends. They are either my personal friends or they are ELV members (or both, LOL). That's enough for me.
