    I was lvl 267 went I started playing, and I'm now up to something like 750. That was after about 2 hours play.
    Tons of points as well. Couldn't believe it.
    I think it would have taken me about 3 years to get to where I ended up last night if I had been playing normally. (I don't buy anything)
    I think I'm up to about 5 billion credits to play with as well.
    So thankyou again to Triker for posting the links.

    Now I have been playing the game for years and finished building all the hotels yonks ago - what level are you at?
    I think I'm level 650 - I did think that they would apply a limit on the amount of gold points I could accrue in a single day but no it kept on going up and up.
    Problem now is spending them - 3 Premium awards already booked - non premium ones either sold out or only use a few thousand points.

    I play for both of us, but all I've done since our last trip a year ago is do the spin and collect daily. Last night, before I started playing, I started at Level 405 with 802,000 LPs and OH was at Level 325 with 355,000 LPs. That is after buying all the rewards we need for our trip.


    Played 30 mins early hours of this morning and went to Level 454 & 378 with 852,000 and 399,000 LPs playing Rapid Gold.


    Switched to Electro Link about 1.5 hours ago at 27.5M a spin on auto spin and now Level 871 & 672 with 1,277,000 and 789,000 LPs.

    Has anyone used the app Anyride for comparing Uber and Lyft prices in Vegas? Not sure whether to risk using it or just compare manually.

    Any thoughts?


    Also, where is the best place to get promo codes as an existing user?

    Thanks Dan and Triker. I have accounts for my wife and I but have been focusing on an account for my Son who is planning his first trip since turning 21, just added over 300k gold coins to his account, he should be able to get the pick of 2 night hotel rooms and a few other rewards for that with change for a future trip.

    Are myvegas planning some reorg of the game or points system to allow these comp points?

    We're flying Virgin to LA and then Delta to Vegas. Do we have to pay the checked on baggage fee from LA to Vegas? A bit surprised that they appear to charge for checked in baggage on internal flights.
    It's nothing , not nothink.

    Depends what ticket(s) you have bought!

    If you bought one ticket from LHR -> LAS (via LAX) then you'd more likely than not have baggage if you didn't choose a hand baggage only fare (Economy Light). You can check this on your ticket or by logging into the booking on the Virgin website.

    If you've bought them as separate tickets, check your baggage allowance allocated on your ticket as it'll depend if you've paid for hand-baggage only fare or not! If you booked via an agency rather than direct I'd guess that it wouldn't come with baggage.

    Hand-Baggage only fares are fast becoming the norm now unfortunately, even with long-haul!

    I use an app called FairRide to compare, think you might have to be in the US to download it.
    The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.

    Just booked our next trip for April next year. Doing a few things differently this time which makes me a little nervous but should still be good.
    1. We normally go in the summer when it's hot (July/August) so aiming to do some other things this time that we wouldn't normally like walking!


    2. Also we usually fly with Virgin but BA flight prices were too good this time so first time flying BA. Just under 2000 for 2 adults, 2 children flying into LA to spend a few days there first and then driving to Vegas for 6 nights, fly back from there. Includes Car hire in that price too.


    3. Our usual go to hotel is Vdara but have stayed in others. This time we are at Excalibur as had comped nights on mlife. Costing around $100.00 for strip view room as it charges for the Fri & Sat nights (staying 6 nights total). Not stayed before so not sure what to expect.


    Looking forward to it already.

    Booked at last for late August last night!

    Flights with BA and a car added on. Couldn't use our Avios, but next cheapest option of booking with BA and a car separate would have made our 200 worth of Avios only worth 90 if that makes sense (would have cost more for the car to book separately). So we kept the Avios for another time!

    So far have booked flights and car, 14 nights to Los Angeles. Will probably spend 2 nights in Los Angeles, maybe one night in Palm Springs (opinions on this??), and then onto Vegas for 10 nights. Then last night back in Los Angeles (maybe at the Westin Long Beach where we stayed before as I can get this for $110 on Priceline.

    For Los Angeles, not quite sure. We land at 19:20 so might just stay near the airport. We'll be using the car to get around so doesn't need to be central. We stayed at Culver City last time and might do this again as the mall is handy for dinner and a wander.

    This is the latest we've ever booked with the exception of the first time we went as we booked about 4 weeks ahead and took a cheap package from Manchester.

    Not staying at Platinum, but have been looking at a few nights at Red Rock. We don't have many Avios but have enough for 2 nights. Would prefer 3 nights there, but fair enough as I could probably add a night. Rate I'm seeing on Priceline is $103 plus taxes. Our points appear to be worth 200 off flights. So that might be a reasonable way to use them.

    I had looked up LA hotels, but the points would only buy one night out there, but rates are much higher there. Will keep this in mind - thanks.

    Our other option to use them is travelling to a wedding in London later in September.
