MyVEGAS App Tips
Do you have a trip to Las Vegas planned? Maybe you’d like to go in the future but aren’t sure where to begin. Either way, you’ll want to know about the myVEGAS app and game as soon as possible so that you can start saving up for free Las Vegas rewards.
This guide is an introduction to myVEGAS. It goes through the basics of myVEGAS, how to start playing, and what it is (and isn’t). We want to be the number one source for myVEGAS app tips.
What is myVEGAS?
MyVEGAS is a FREE app sponsored by MGM Resorts that lets you earn points that can be redeemed for free stuff in Las Vegas and other cities. There are two main myVEGAS apps: slots and blackjack.
Either app earns you rewards but most people choose to play the myVEGAS slots app because it is more hands off and you can earn rewards faster. We will talk about the myVEGAS slots app throughout this guide, but the blackjack terminology is much the same.
There are two main platforms that you can play myVEGAS on:
- Mobile (iOS or Android)
It’s extremely easy to download and get started with myVEGAS. Before we show you how to install it, there is some basic myVEGAS app tips and terminology you should know first.
These are the terms used throughout this guide and our website. It’s important that you understand them because it can be confusing for new players.
Loyalty Points (LP)
Loyalty Points are gold coins that you earn when playing myVEGAS. Loyalty Points are used to redeem free stuff in Las Vegas.
You earn Loyalty Points for simply playing the game. It’s best not to worry how many LP you have until you have greater than 5,000 and can start looking at what rewards to go after.
Chips are virtual currency used in the game to bet with. They are marked in purple in the myVEGAS app.
The game starts you off with some chips when you first install it. After that, there are 4 ways to get more chips:
- Winning lines in each slot game.
- Free chip box which can be opened every 2 hours (small amount)
- A daily wheel spin (large amount)
- Purchasing chips with real money (100% voluntary and not required)
Your VIP Status gives you a bonus in the number of chips you get inside of the chip boxes or daily spins. There are 7 VIP levels in total:
You can get to VIP Status 3 (Opal) just my playing the myVEGAS app daily. It is not possible to get to VIP Status 4 without spending real life money in the game, which is again 100% not necessary.
You increase your VIP Status by earning MVP points.
MVP Points are earned two basic ways:
- Daily wheel bonus
- Hourly box bonus
You get a few MVP points for connecting your myVEGAS account to Facebook and also when you purchase bundles from the store.
The two basic ways are enough to get you VIP Status 3, which gives you 30% multipliers on your bonuses.
Your level is your virtual status number in the game. There is absolutely no purpose to the level other than the fact that you are awarded bonus chips and loyalty points for reaching the next level.

myVEGAS App Tips
Our home page has tons of guides and tutorials on myVEGAS, but there are some basic app tips you should know about when playing myVEGAS:
- The best myVEGAS app tip is that more spins equals more loyalty points. Try to only bet 1/100 of your total chip count. This will let you spin more times before you run out of chips and let you earn more LP.
- Save up loyalty points and worry about rewards later. By focusing your time on playing, you should be able to earn 50,000 or more loyalty points easily.
- Play the special events. These promotions offer greater win rates and special chip bonuses.
- Maximize your non premium myVEGAS rewards when you travel to Las Vegas. Non premium rewards require you to pay some money out of your own pocket, but are cheap to redeem in the app.
