What Is myVEGAS and How Does It Work?

Build the Las Vegas Strip as you've always imagined it.

 

Welcome to myVEGAS, a Facebook game unlike any you've ever experienced. In one beautifully rendered place you can party with your friends, play wildly entertaining games of chance, and build the Las Vegas Strip as you've always imagined it. But perhaps best of all, every time you visit, you'll earn Loyalty Points redeemable for real-world rewards from some of the hottest spots in the "real" Las Vegas, including luxurious hotel stays, gourmet dinners, and VIP access to the most exclusive shows and night clubs.

 

How Do I Get Around?

The main myVEGAS Menu is located along the top of your screen. 

  • Click the Rewards Button to browse the Rewards Menu; 
  • Click the Games Button to browse available and soon-to-be-released slot and table games; and
  • Click the More Button to access other menu features, including: Purchasing Chips, Inviting Friends, and Returning to your myVEGAS Strip to harvest chips and loyalty points from your Casino Resorts.

The main myVEGAS Game Menu is located at the top of your screen. 

After you have built your first Casino Resort, you will also be able to navigate the Strip. Just click the Red X Button Red_X.png at the top right corner of any window to close that window. Then click and drag anywhere on the Strip to move around. 

 

What Games Can I Play on myVEGAS?

myVEGAS offers you an ever growing collection of authentic slot and table games. When you first begin playing, you'll have access to just one, Excalibur -- a Camelot-themed, 5-reel slot game with 3 bonus features.

As you continue playing, you'll quickly unlock additional games. You can browse the myVEGAS Games Menu anytime to see which ones are available and when new ones will be released.

How Do I Build a Casino Resort?

As you play the games, you will win "V" symbols that accumulate to award individual buildings from each resort. Once you are at the designated VIP level and have won all of the building pieces, you will be able to build your new casino resort. The more you play and increase your VIP level, the sooner you will be on your way to owning your very own myVEGAS Strip!

How Do I Track My Casino Building Progress?

Your progress can be tracked in two places. First is the Progress Meter at the top right corner of the game window. It's marked by the myVEGAS "V" and features a yellow indicator bar. The numbers on this bar tell you how many build symbols you've hit and how many you need before you win your next resort building piece. After you've won the building, the Progress Meter resets and begins counting up to the next one.

The second place to track your progress is in the Resort Progress Slider inside the game window. The Slider appears at the top right edge of the game window. It's marked by a myVEGAS "V" icon. When you click the icon or when you win a new resort building, the window slides open to show you the buildings you've won, and which ones are remaining. Win all the buildings and the resort will be added to your Strip! From there, you can collect resort bonus chips every few hours!

Track your progress as you hit myVEGAS V Symbols and win new Resorts, piece by piece. 

If you are not able to open and/or view the Progress Meter or Resort Progress Window, it means that you have not yet achieved the corresponding VIP Level needed to initiate construction of your next Resort. Builder Bob will appear and tell you what level is required to continue. 

 

How Do I Earn and Redeem Loyalty Points for Real-World Rewards?

Loyalty Points are easy to earn and even easier to redeem! By playing myVEGAS more frequently, playing longer, buying chips, and spreading the word about the game, you’ll accumulate myVEGAS Loyalty Points that you can redeem for real-world rewards like hotel rooms, dinners, and show tickets.

Your Loyalty Points balance is displayed at the top of the screen, along with your Chips balance, and your Game Level / Experience Points. The Loyalty Points Meter is the one on the far right and is indicated by a gold and diamond casino chip. Click the Green Info Button to learn more about Loyalty Points.

Click on the Rewards Button, at the far left,  to get more information and browse the available rewards.

The more you play the quicker you'll earn amazing free rewards.

 

What Are Levels, Experience Points, and VIP Status?

For every bet you make, you earn Experience Points. When you earn enough Experience Points, you advance to the next Level. At certain Levels, you earn a VIP Status upgrade. Levels and VIP Status have certain awards associated with them. These may include bonus chips, higher bet limits, new features, and new games.

The Experience Points Meter shows your current balance (the number on the left) and the number of points needed to reach the next Level (number on the right). 

 

How Do I Keep Track of My Chips, VIP Status, and Loyalty Points?

The myVEGAS Scoreboard at the top of the screen displays your important point totals: Experience Points / Game Level, Chips, and Loyalty Points.
