Monday Musings about My Vegas Slots…

Do you know this game for your mobile devices?  It’s a free app to play and your points can be turned into real rewards through M Life and MGM.  MGM owns several of the casinos and restaurants in Las Vegas as well as, apparently, interests in lots of other things worldwide.  I figured that playing this game would be more worthwhile than, say, Candy Crush, which is fun, but doesn’t really earn you anything but bragging rights.

Well, I’ll tell you right now, it’s fun, but it’s also addictive.  You can download free coins every four hours and the more you do, the more they give you.  There are different levels you earn, which give you higher percentages of free coins and loyalty rewards, too.  It’s downright evil genius.

I’ve got my family playing now, on the chance that we may meet up in Vegas next year sometime for a long weekend.  The awards really do translate into free or discounted hotel stays, shows, and meals.  I’m sure many people spend money buying more points to get more awards, but if you don’t do that, the only thing you’re spending is your valuable time — ulp!  And therein lies the problem.

If you have an addictive personality, and I’m not saying I do, but maybe — it’s hard to quit before your eyes are crossing from the strain or you run out of chips.  I refuse to buy chips, which is the only thing saving me.  But I’ve been neglecting reading and writing stories on my blog and even reading the books I have.

And here’s the thing.  I have an iPhone, which the game will play on.  I did have it on my Kindle HD tablet, but the game updated somewhere around the beginning of July and it will not update on Kindle.  If anyone has one and plays this game and knows the secret, please let me know!  There is also a my Vegas Blackjack and the loyalty awards cross over between the two games.  That now refuses to open on my Kindle also.  Any ideas other than buying an iPad??  Just wondered if you knew…

    1. I know! And people have told me they got free meals, etc. Nothing to lose but time — maybe I’ll just play it on the treadmill!

      1. This has saddened me. I have seen the effects of an addiction to Candy Crush Saga and I … fear for your soul, Dee. I hope that you get through this, my friend. You’re in my prayers. 🙂

  4. Sounds like you’ve got the bug Diane, lol. I won’t even attempt another game, Bingo and a few card games are enough for this chick.

    I tried to find an email address for you but couldn’t so I need to comment here. Yesterday I shared a post on one person’s experience on facing cancer and going through treatment. If you read it I wanted to make sure you knew there was no ill intent. I respect the writer’s opinion and because I’ve not shared this experience I have no way of knowing what I would do if placed in the same situation but I believe in individual choice and respect opinions opposite the writer’s. My heart goes out to you and others who are fighting this horrid disease.

  5. I had to give it up, like two years ago because I was so addicted to it! Note: I have had to do this with every single game on my phone. Apparently, I cannot be trusted with games.

    1. Hahaha, I know what you mean! We are planning a trip, maybe next year, so I want to get those free rewards, but yes, it’s become like a job! As soon as I wake up, I collect my bonus points!

  6. MGM is building a casino a couple of towns over from me. They’ve been working on it for a couple of years now and have a couple more to go. They are completely renovating the downtown of the city and the highway traffic through there has been a nightmare. When I go home from work I travel in the opposite direction and every day three lanes of traffic are at a dead stop for miles…I KNOW they will be so glad when it’s completed. My mother loves slot machines so she’s looking forward to its completion too!! Good luck with piling up the rewards. 🙂

    1. I’m excited to go to Vegas next year and just see the hotels and some shows. It’s way more fun to gamble with pretend money on the game than my real money!

      1. I’ve never been to Vegas but my parents have, they love the hotels and shows too. They just planned a trip to Biloxi in September to celebrate their 65th Anniversary. Apparently there are casinos there too. I would imagine it is more fun to gamble with pretend money, however it’s much more fun to win the real thing!! 😉 hehe
