MyVegas is a wonderful mobile and Facebook application that allows you to play non-gambling slot games for points which can be converted into a whole host of rewards to spend in Vegas and beyond. However, you are able to spend money to buy MyVegas chips if you’ve run out or want to top up your balance.
It’s worth buying MyVegas chips if there’s not much time until your vacation as it will help you get the final points you need for a reward. Alternatively, if you don’t have time to play the game, buying chips and placing high stakes is likely to give you more points for rewards with less effort.
Ultimately, when looking to buy MyVegas chips it’s about ensuring that you don’t spend more on the chips than you would on the reward.

What MyVegas Rewards You’d Like
It’s pointless spending any amount of money or dedicated amount of time on the game if you aren’t sure of the rewards you’d like to receive. In our case, we’d book our flights to Vegas, but not a hotel. I wanted to use our loyalty points for a complimentary stay.
So I headed over to the MyVegas app rewards section to work out roughly how many loyalty points I’d need in order to get the longest, and best stay we could during our trip.
I noted a couple of two-night complimentary stays currently available in the MyRewards section of MyVegas. I checked the promotional calendar to ensure my dates were available (these will either be within the terms on the page like above or on a link. In the case of the image above, I had to click the orange link stating ‘View Promotional Availability’.
I was looking for our two-night complimentary stay to be between the 15th to the 21st October and those dates were available according to the promotional calendar. Therefore my goal was to get to 95,000 loyalty points.
If I spent $5 and as a result felt as though it could get me to that 95,000 loyalty points, then I’d spend it. Simply because two nights at this hotel during my visit retails for a minimum of $289.08.
How Much Time You Have To Invest In The Game
If you work an office job, are a stay at home mom or have plenty of spare time to run the game in the background while getting on with everyday things then you’ll be able to complete more of the free MyVegas chip redemption methods more often, resulting in more MyVegas free chips.
If you don’t have much free time to spend on the game, or you’ve not got long until you leave for your Vegas trip then it might be a good idea to purchase some MyVegas chips which in turn will allow you to increase your bet amount on the games and convert the chips into loyalty points quicker.
Where You’re Staying During Your Vegas Trip
If you’ve already booked a stay at an MGM resort then you may want to consider saving your loyalty points for some Freeplay. There are often different Freeplay rewards for each of the MGM hotels.
In the case of my parents, they’d already booked to stay at the Bellagio. So we decided the best thing for them to save their loyalty points for was the $50 Freeplay in the hotel’s casino.
If they were to spend $5 to get them to 150,000 loyalty points in time for their trip, then I’d say that’s a great deal. As they’ve spent $5 to get $50.
Of course, I’d always recommend maximising and continuing to maximise the free MyVegas chip offers that refresh every day. Whether you’re purchasing chips or not. These are free chips, and essentially free rewards!
Remember, the ultimate goal is to spend as little amount of money possible and get as much free stuff for our Vegas trip as possible thanks to the MyVegas rewards.
What Are MyVegas Chips Worth
I said in the introduction of this post that MyVegas heavily promotes the option of purchasing MyVegas chips. So much so you might receive multiple pop-ups with multiple different offers.
So if you decide to part with your hard-earned cash in return for MyVegas chips that you’re planning on turning into MyVegas rewards then you’ll want to ensure you’re getting the very best deal.
Below are screenshots of the offers I had available to me at the exact same time when I was looking to purchase MyVegas chips. This included pop-up offers, looking to pop my champagne bottle that was 100% full or looking at the standard purchasing options.
Above you can see I was offered 12 million chips (along with some gold coins and MVP points) for $5. This works out at 2.4 million chips per $1.
If I chose to pop my champagne bottle I’d be getting just over 3 million chips for 3 dollars (along with 120 MVP points). This works out at just over 600,000 chips per $1. A lot less than the previous offer!
If I opted for the standard MyVegas chips purchase then I could get almost 13 million chips for $5 (along with a bonus spin, 250 loyalty and 200MVP). Much like the first offer this worked out at 2.4 million chips per $1.
Finally, I was offered this deal in a pop-up. Almost 96 million chips for $1. That’s a considerable amount more than I’d previously been offered, and an offer I was willing to take as a result.
As a result of purchasing the first deal, I’d unlocked ‘the second level’. Again with just a $1 spend I’d be getting 257 million chips. Again, this number of chips for $1 is insane considering my previous offers, so I decided to take them up on the offer.
Finally, after purchasing the second level offer I unlocked the third level. Almost 442 million chips for $1. Which of course, I took. In conclusion, I managed to get over 793 million MyVegas chips for just $3. On top of that, I got a number of loyalty points and MVP points which weren’t mentioned in the offer but applied to my account upon redemption.
While the offers are going to vary at the time of play. I’d recommend using this strategy to ensure you’re always getting the best value for money if you do decide that buying MyVegas chips is worth it in your case.
I’d also urge you to stay on the side of caution. I’d hate to see anyone spending anything near $100 on the game. Especially if they’ve zero experience in redeeming the rewards. For any further gambling help, we’d always recommend GamCare.
The games are designed as slots and can be addictive, just remember the reason we’re playing is to get amazing rewards at a heavily discounted rate.
