If you are a frequent traveler to Las Vegas you have probably heard about the MyVegas App and Facebook Rewards Games. They are various games that you can play on your smart devices and your Facebook account. Playing the games will earn you real rewards in Las Vegas such as show tickets and buffets. Playing the game is 100% free but you can buy in game currency (chips) if you want a chance at better rewards.
Is MyVegas legit and is it free to play?
I have been playing MyVegas since 2014 and I can tell you 100% that the game is legit. We have cashed in a ton of prizes over the years such as show tickets to Ka and Beatles Love, numerous free buffets, freeplay and other dinging rewards. Yes the game is also free to play. Without spending any money you can earn real rewards in Vegas and other cities. It just takes playing the game daily to earn rewards.
What games are there available to play?
There are a number of games in the MyVegas realm available to play. They are split between what is available on the App and Facebook. The App games include MyVegas, Blackjack, MyKonami and PopSlots. Facebook games include MyVegas and you can play MyKonami as well but it is a mirror of the app game. The MyVegas on Facebook is a unique version over the app. They are all the same game with the same reward pool. You have to link them through your Facebook account in order to pool your reward currency (LP’s) into one pot.
What rewards are available in MyVegas and what are the requirements?
You are currently allowed to cash in 3 Premium rewards over a rolling 30 day period. The 30 day clock starts when you use the reward in Vegas and not when you purchase it. It’s basically 3 Premium rewards per trip per user. The rewards will be listed a Premium when you click on them. Premium rewards are generally hotel stays, buffets, free play and show tickets.
Premium rewards will also require a stay at an MGM resort. A stay can be a comp’d stay except in the case of Free play rewards which require paid stays.
You are allowed to use as many other rewards as you can afford over the same trip. Note you cannot buy unlimited 2-1 Buffets for example. Each reward can only be purchased once until the reward pool is refreshed which may be a couple of times a year.
Keep updated with our MyVegas category for more tips and tricks. We will update this guide in the future.
The MyVegas MyKonami Free play reward is one of the better Free play rewards for those staying at MGM Resorts and those that aren’t, The reward is part of the MyVegas series of games and is available for play on your smart devices as well as Facebook on your computer.
The game can be played two ways either through an app on your smart-device or on Facebook. They are both the same game and is just mirrored across both devices.
The game is part of the MyVegas series and rewards count against your Three Premium Reward limit. You do not get an extra Three Premium Rewards by playing this game.
The reward is $25 of Free play and currently costs $100,000 LPs. At the Aria the reward costs $150,000 LPs and requires a two night stay. The reward is also a Premium Reward.
The reward must be redeemed at the Mlife Desk of the hotel you purchased the reward of. If you purchased Luxor, Bellagio and Mirage rewards as your Premium Three you must go to each hotels Mlife Desk to have the Free play loaded onto your players card.
The reward states you must use the Free play on a MyKonami game but you can use it on any non-progressive game. You know the ones that are no fun.
You can also redeem your reward and stack it for use at any hotel. If you purchase three of the rewards and then get it loaded on your card at each hotel you are free to redeem the $75 reward at any Mlife property.
All of the other Free play rewards can only be used if you are paying for your hotel stay. If you are staying on a comp’d stay either through MyVegas or an Mlife offer you cannot use Free play rewards. MyKonami is the exception to the rule.
There however have been reports of Mlife desks not honoring this and denying the reward because of comp’d stays.
Please visit our MyVegas category page for more information on the game. We will providing tips on game play, reward redemption and free chip links.

Shameless Self Promotion
There is not shame in self promotion. Tell everyone it’s your birthday and see if they offer any special deals or freebies available. Let people know you are in Vegas to celebrate your special day.
- When making your hotel reservation make sure they put a birthday note on your reservation and mention it upon check in. They may give you an upgrade when making the reservation or when checking in. For example, we were given a room on the 53rd floor with a strip view at the Aria.
- Mention it to your bartender, waitress or hostess. You may just get a free drink, entree or dinner.
Sign Up For Players Club Cards
Sign up for players club cards and their email lists. They will email you promotions for your birthday. It may something as small as a free drink or it could be freeplay credit. Last year I was given $10 free play plus a bonus of $30 for any stay during my birthday month. If you don’t get a special via email I would still go to the players club ask if there are any promotions or freebies.
Sign Up For Email List or Fan Clubs for Restaurants
Many restaurants will give you a 2-1 coupon or freebie on your birthday simply for signing up for their email list or fan club. If they ask you for your date of birth when signing up you will more than likely get a freebie.
