Everything You Need to Know About myVEGAS Bingo

I will never be done talking about the amazing benefits of playing the myVEGAS apps. And these tips will help you gain the most points. And now they have added a fifth app to their gaming experience. Well, technically sixth if you include being able to play their slot games through Facebook! The app is myVEGAS Bingo and here are my best myVEGAS Bingo tips.

Short introduction into myVEGAS apps

On numerous occasions these apps have helped me to redeem free stays at hotels in Las Vegas like the Bellagio, free drinks, and free experiences without spending a dime in the app. I have also used the rewards for places other than Vegas too. For example I have used the rewards at one of my hometown casinos, Sycuan, where I got a free Premier Suite AND a $250 food and non-alcoholic beverage credit at their poolside cabanas. If you want to learn more about those apps and some of the awesome experiences that I have redeemed with them (which again are all 100% free!), click this link: Making the Most of myVEGAS Reward Points. Want to know how many Loyalty Points you can stack up in a single day? I’ve got the answer!

myVEGAS Bingo Tips and Beginner Tricks

myVEGAS Bingo adds a completely different gaming experience to myVEGAS games. This is the first time that they are adding Bingo as a game to play with their apps. Most of their games center around slot games. You can easily put those on Auto Spin, walk away from your phone, and rack up the Loyalty Points. But myVEGAS Bingo requires you to be an active participant in the game as you daub your way to victory using powerups and some essential Bingo strategy.

How to gain loyalty points and how much can I earn?

There’s a huge difference between how you gain points in the other apps and how you gain in myVEGAS Bingo. For the other apps, every time you would spin the slot, you would fill up your Loyalty Points tank ever so slightly based on how much your bet was. Once you fill it up, then it would reward you Loyalty Points based on your level in the app.For example, I am level 435 in the myVEGAS Slots app and every time I fill up my Loyalty tank, it awards me 500 Loyalty Points. Essentially a higher level means a higher Loyalty Point payout in those other apps.

myVEGAS Bingo Loyalty Reward Points meter

For myVEGAS Bingo, it’s still the same that once you fill your Loyalty tank it will award you Loyalty Points. BUT….

  • The Loyalty Points amount is a FIXED amount of 50 Loyalty points. This will not increase at all with your level within the app, and..
  • Your Loyalty Points Tank is filled by your TIME SPENT in the app. Specifically one minute will award you 50 Loyalty Points. The meter fills up like a clock going one full rotation around.

Here’s why this is AWESOME! This means that you could literally have no in-game money to spend on playing the Bingo games and you can still fill up your Loyalty tank max for the day. All you would have to do is open the app, leave your phone open for one hour, and boom, you have just gained 3,000 Loyalty Points for doing absolutely no game play.

What’s the max amount of Loyalty Points that you can gain in a single day playing myVEGAS Bingo?

You can gain 3,000 Loyalty Points in the app before that little green check mark will appear next to your Loyalty Points. That green check mark indicates that you have reached your daily Loyalty Point limit. However, that mark ONLY indicates that you are maxed out on that specific app. So if you max out on myVEGAS Bingo, you can go to any of the other myVEGAS apps to continue to get as many points as possible for your day.

Basic myVEGAS Bingo Strategy Tips

myVEGAS Bingo Powerups tips

Like any gaming app, you can develop a strategy to go about putting the best odds in your favor. myVEGAS Bingo is no different. But here are a few tips for myVEGAS Bingo that will help reagardless. The Powerups are essential to gaining the upper hand. You can “buy” a stack of 3 Powerups or a stack of 6 Powerups for one game. You “purchase” these Powerups using Diamonds. These Diamonds are just a form of free currency in the game but are used specifically for Powerups and that’s it. I always buy all 6 Powerups. If you don’t like the hand you are dealt, you can always buy another stack of Powerups. But just remember that you can only play with one single stack. Once you choose the stack you want to play with, the rest are trashed. You won’t be able to use them on another game.

Powerups and Tips to Use Them

Sometimes these games move very quickly and sometimes when that happens, you may not get to use all of your Powerups in that game. The easiest way to avoid that is to make every daub count. Based on how many cards you are playing within the game (either one-card Bingo, two-card, or four-card), you will have to daub X amount of spaces before you have activated a Powerup. For four-card Bingo, you have to daub any three squares to activate one Powerup. Don’t wait to use your Powerups. Once you use a Powerup, it will have a time-out how about 5 seconds before you can start activating another Powerup. You can still daub while this 5-second delay occurs, but those daubs will not go towards activating the Powerup.

If you are lucky enough to have the Extra Daub Powerup as the last Powerup in your bank, which can come in the form of 1-extra, 2-extra, or 3-extra daubs, I will ALWAYS hold off on using that one until most of the Bingos have been called. Each game only has 32 Bingos that can be called, and remember that you are playing against other people. So having an Extra Daub as the last powerup gives you the advantage for one final way to get an extra number to get one of the last Bingos. I will usually wait until there is 10 Bingos left to be called before I use that Powerup. The reason being is that if I use it too soon, then I am essentially taking numbers off the board that could have been called in that timeframe before the end of the game.

Final thoughts on myVEGAS Bingo tips

Again, everyone comes up with their own way of doing things. However, these are my absolute must-dos if you plan on making the most of your gameplay within the app right off the bat.

If you only think you can have fun in las Vegas during the summer, then you are wrong! Here's what you can do right now to have fun in Vegas during the off season!

A COVID Guide to Vegas During the Off-Season

Vegas! A place of fun, excitement, parties, and lots of drinks! Well, if you have ever visited Las Vegas during the off-season (i.e. during the winter months) there isn’t as much excitement. Now add on COVID regulations and there is probably a little less to do than normal. But I am going to give you a practical guide to going to Las Vegas during a COVID, off-season vacation!

First of all, let me preface this by saying that this guide will not be for everyone – I completely understand that everyone has their own comfort level with traveling or even just going out for a night so what me and my group did for our four day trip might not be your cup of tea. And that’s ok!

Moving along, my friends and I went to Las Vegas from February 1st to the 4th to celebrate a late birthday for me and an early birthday for one of the friends I was going with. But we actually got so excited to take our five hour drive from San Diego to Vegas to we ended up leaving San Diego around 8pm on January 31st and arrived at 2am in Vegas! Because that part was kind of a last minute plan, we bought a very cheap room at the Excalibur – with room fees and taxes it came out to around $38. We spent the first official night and the second night at New York New York, and our final night was spent at the Bellagio.

Now I know what you are thinking – that’s a lot of jumping around for a short trip and it must have cost you a grip to do that. Well here’s a secret – our rooms at New York New York and the Bellagio were FREE!!! I mean, minus the room fees and taxes. Those rooms were comped, but all comped rooms are still subject to the fees and taxes. How did we get free rooms? Check out my other blog that dives in to all the ways we saved in Vegas and got countless opportunities for free rooms, discounted experiences, free drinks, and many more rewards! What’s even better is that to obtain there rewards is 100% free!! You don’t have to spend something to get these rewards, you don’t have to open a fancy credit card – nope none of that. So check out that blog HERE!

So you need some ideas? Here are my favorites!

Hotel hop! If you plan on staying for a few days, maybe try staying at a different hotel each night just for the change of scenery. You can experience a different hotel room and a different view of the Strip!

Casino explore! Now even if you don’t hotel hop, that doesn’t mean you can’t check out all there is to offer at those different hotels. I mean the casinos are where all the action and shopping is! But remember to check what is open because some hotels/casinos during COVID times are shut down for half of the week. Our favorites were wandering around Caesar’s (it’s HUGE) and getting lost at in the shopping center at the Venetian. Both places are beautifully themed, as are most of the hotels on the Strip!

Find some cool bars! We found a few like the 1923 Prohibition Bar at Mandalay Bay, the SkyBar at the Waldorf Astoria, and the Vanderpump at Caesar’s. But remember to CALL AHEAD! Many bars either have different operating hours than what is listed on Google (they might even be closed even though Google says they are open and we ran into this problem for a few bars we wanted to check out) OR they require reservations. Either way, just call ahead to see what’s up so you aren’t left without plans.

Check out the cute Flamingos at the Flamingo Hotel, the Shark Reef at the Mandalay Bay, or the mini zoo at Mirage! Since my friends and I all work at a zoo, looking at cute animals is always a must. However, the Shark Reef is a ticketed entry and I honestly don’t think it’s worth paying the $25 to see it. So if you want to go, get a comped ticket through the myVEGAS apps. Also, when we went, the Mirage wasn’t open during the week due to low guest activity, so again, just remember to look up what their operating hours are.

Download the myVEGAS apps and let the free rewards lead you around to new locations! There are so many rewards and it really let’s you get creative in how you explore this awesome place. Most of our plans were lead by these free rewards. We were able to get a lot of Loyalty Points very easily so we were all able to participate in these free activities together!

Whatever you decide to do, do it safely! More things will start to open up in no time!

The Perfect 4-Day Itinerary for Las Vegas

Well it’s only been a few months since my trip, but I am now getting around to writing this blog! With Cody and I living in San Diego, a trip to Vegas is close enough for us to drive to but also far enough away to feel like we are stepping out of our norm. Now I know some things look different now due to the ‘rona, but we still had a great time there and were able to do so many things while we were there. So let’s take a look! (If you want to watch the total adventure of this trip on my Instagram Story instead, click here!)

Posing with the Seven Magic Mountains rock formations right outside of Las Vegas! As many as six different colored rocks are stacked on top of each other in each of the seven formations. This is a perfect spot for pictures as you make your way in to Las Vegas.
Seven Magic Mountains

We decided to drive there rather early in the morning, mostly because we both woke up around 3am and we couldn’t back to sleep so we just got up and left. Our first unofficial stop was the Seven Magic Mountains which is right outside of Vegas! Because this is such a tourist hotspot, I am glad we got there before the crowds. We arrived around 7am, took a few pictures, and then we kept on driving – there was one other group taking pictures at the same time as us.

We booked our stay with the Bellagio which is a MGM Grand Resort. Our room rate per night was around $140, but with each day we received a $75 food and beverage credit that we could use at any MGM Grand Resort on the Strip! I feel like I don’t have to tell you how insane of a deal that is. Online said check in wasn’t until 3pm, but we took a chance that it being kind of slow in Vegas with travel that we could check in early, and by 8:30am we were in our room!

Most of what we did during our stay was driven by the rewards we received by playing the various myVEGAS apps. If you want a full detailed blog about all of those apps and how it works, click here to read that blog! By playing the games on these apps, we were able to save a total of $200 on our trip!

That being said, once we got changed, we went out to redeem our first reward! To redeem your rewards from the app, you have to first stop by a M-Life Reward Desk (located in MOST MGM Grand Resorts) to pick up your membership card (don’t worry, it’s free) and then depending on the resort, you then have to redeem your rewards for that specific location at each desk in the resort. I think the only resort that didn’t have a desk was Vdara. So we stopped by the Aria to redeem our free cocktail from Aria and our free breakfast at Vdara! However, it being as early as it was, we did have to wait like 30 minutes before the bar opened, but in that time we were able to walk across the courtyard to Vdara and have our breakfast. It was a super easy process, we picked up our vouchers from the M-Like desk and took it to the little restaurant in Vdara and then back to the bar at Aria that we could redeem the reward from. The only downside, and it was kind of the running theme with redeeming all of our alcoholic rewards, was that you HAVE to buy some sort of food with it. But because a lot of places know that people just want alcohol, they have very small, cheap options to choose from – like fries, or a bag of nuts. So overall, that investment is like $3 but then you get your drink.

The Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is a site to behold. They change the theme, the flowers, and the topiary out seasonally so every visit is sure to be different. This time that I went they had a beautiful set of flowers displaying even bigger, vibrant flowers!

After that, we came back to the Bellagio to explore a little bit more! It was our first time at a fancy-schmancy hotel anyway. They have a beautiful indoor garden with some of the most incredible flower arrangements. It’s free to walk through, but it can get crowded from other visitors wanting to take a look. Most of our Day 1 was just walking around to the casinos closest to us like Caesar’s Palace, which neither of us was impressed with – they were kind of old style and dirty..

To begin our Day 2, we stopped by New York New York because, surprise surprise, we had a reward to redeem for a free beer. We bought a basket of fries for the both of us and then we were both able to grab a beer. Me being a responsible human being in Vegas, I realized that if I started my morning without food first then it wouldn’t be a pleasant day, so I decided to get a Starbucks breakfast sandwich beforehand. And because New York New York is a MGM Grand Resort, we were able to use part of our food and beverage credit at the Starbucks inside of the casino and they just charged it to our room at the Bellagio!

After downing our ginormous beers, we walked to Mandalay Bay, which I don’t recommend in the heat of Vegas. It looked closer than it was. But we were heading there to redeem our reward for the Shark Reef Aquarium they had! But unlucky for us, we didn’t know we had to make a reservation for a specific time slot. So we just made the reservation for the next day. Since we were already in that neck of the woods, we stopped by Luxor to redeem our free shot. I cannot take shots but hey it’s Vegas – so I sipped it out of a cocktail straw. On our walk back to the Bellagio, we just decided to casino hop our way there. I really recommend casino hopping just because it’s something to do and it’s fun to see the different themes of all of these hotels and casinos! Plus the rewards really helped motivate us to see them all.

The Bellagio pools are incredibly beautiful, and the walkways to the different pools are even more so! This walkway had beautifully grean plant archways and the walkway itself was textured to match the decor and elegance of the Bellagio. I am standing in the middle of the walkways wearing my best, summer poolside get up. But we mustn't forget the mask!

A picture of a glass of champagne from PRIME Steakhouse at the Bellagio. This is a perfect spot for a romantic evening with a loved one. We, however, only went to redeem our free champagne reward using the myVEGAS app. The champagne was bubbly and the atmosphere was beautiful.
PRIME Steakhouse at Bellagio

After getting back to the Bellagio, we lounged by the pool for a little bit but we got over it really quickly because we had to wear a masks even if we were sitting down in a lounge chair away from everyone else. We just didn’t understand why it was ok to not wear a mask sitting at a restaurant but not while sitting outside. But if we were in the pool with everyone else, then it was ok to not wear a mask. It just didn’t make sense to us, so we soaked in a few rays, got way too hot with dealing with that, and then left. Our rest of the day was spent trying to get lucky on some slots because again I had a reward for $150 in free play on slots, but also Cody wanted to teach me how to play Craps! Later that night we used another reward at the Bellagio restaurant, PRIME Steakhouse, for two free glasses of champagne with a purchase of an appetizer. So we dressed up all fancy to get our appetizer and left – we saw the other prices on the menu and that was way more than we wanted to spend. The two free glasses of champagne alone were regularly priced at $54!! We did however get McDonald’s afterwards.

I am lounging poolside at the MGM Grand. I used my rewards to redeem a free stay with MGM Grand specifically to use their pool and lazy river for the day. I am wearing tropical print with my neon blue Mickey Mouse Loungefly backpack, surrounded my palm trees, with the hotel in the background.

Day 3 – boy oh boy did Cody have a struggle getting up. You remember how I got food the morning of Day 2 because the day would be spent drinking? Yea well Coy decided that his 28 year old body could still party-hardy. And he suffered the consequences. But moving right along, we used a reward to get a free room at the MGM Grand because I wanted to experience their epic lazy river! Pre-COVID, if you stayed at the Bellagio, you could have free access to the MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay pools, and if you weren’t a guests at the Bellagio, you could still buy a guest day pass to use the pool. But since they wanted to limit the number of people entering and leaving their hotels and pools, it was only available to guests. So using that reward to get a free room allowed us to have a nice pool day and experience a new hotel! The other downside was that you couldn’t rent the inner-tubes they had – you had to buy them. So $20 later, I was living my best life and floating down the river. We stayed there for a few hours but we couldn’t stay long because I had purchased tickets for use to go the Minus 5 Ice Bar at the Venetian!

A picture of my boyfriend, Cody, at the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef Aquarium. He is in the last main room of the aquarium that features an almost shipwrecked sort of aesthetic and has huge panes of glass for you to see all the sharks and sea life swim by.

There are multiple locations in Vegas but I bought the tickets the week prior knowing that the Venetian was farther down the strip from what we would normally be doing and I wanted us to be able to see all the hotels. I did call in advance to make sure that they weren’t doing any maintenance for the day I purchased because the site made it clear that they would have days for sanitization and obviously I didn’t want to book for that day. So after the pool, we got dressed in our MGM Grand room and made our way over to the Venetian! Upon arriving, we found out that the Ice Bar was closed… You could say I was a little disappointed because I had called in advance for exactly this reason and the tickets said no refunds. But an hour later, I saw some employees in there setting up, told them the situation and how now we wouldn’t be able to go because we had our Mandalay Bay Shark Reef reservation that day and we were able to get a refund. If you decide to go, make sure you call.

By that time, we had to make our way to Mandalay Bay Shark Reef for our reservation! We were both really excited for the aquarium, but in full honesty, do not pay for this experience. Regularly, tickets would have been $29 a person, but we walked through the whole thing in 20 minutes. This place is TINY. Do not expect a lot. It was cool seeing the shark room, and really there was only one room with sharks, but other than that we got to the end and we both looked at each other like “that was it..?” Knowing that now, I probably won’t spend my reward points to go again either.

A picture from the top of the Eiffel Tower at the Paris hotel in Vegas. This is a perfect spot to visit at night because you can see all the hotels lit up on the Strip. Not to mention it's a great spot to watch the Bellagio Fountains from above! In this picture you can see the fountains light up in all of their glory as the show goes off down below.
The Top of the Paris Eiffel Tower Las Vegas

Later that day, we walked around the strip some more to do some more exploring, gambled a little bit here and there, but I told Cody that I really wanted to see the fountain show that takes place in front of the Bellagio. We saw it around dusk time and it would go off around every 15-30 minutes but there is a schedule online so you don’t have to guess when the next show is! After that we went and got dinner at the Tilted Kilt because they had a great happy hour deal, but as we were walking back, we saw the Paris Eiffel Tower all aglow so we decided to go check the casino out. Once we arrived, we saw that you could take an elevator up to the top of it and we were sold! I believe tickets were around $30 a person but the view from the top was gorgeous! My favorite part was that you can watch the fountain show from the top too! You can’t really hear the music but you can see the fountains from a different angle and you can see just how high the water gets!

This picture is of the mural at the Avengers STATION at Treasure Island that features all of the main Avegers in one beautiful picture. I am posing in front of the mural wearing my Iron Man shirt. The Avengers that you can see in the mural in this picture are Captain America, Black Widow, Thor, Iron Man, and Vision.
Avengers STATION

Day 4 was our final day and they only thing we had planned was something that Cody found for us to do a few days before we left for the vacation – going to the Avengers STATION! Me being a Marvel nerd, I was all too quick to say yes to it! This amazing exhibit can be found at Treasure Island and honestly it was pretty freaking badass seeing all the props from the movie and getting to interact with the exhibit itself. We were one of three groups there but we never really saw the other two groups, I only heard them in the other rooms. The website that we bought the tickets from was holding a sale and we got a deal and we were both able to go for $60 (usually tickets are $41 per adult). Also we both got an exclusive pin from the exhibit for free when we checked in! I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend this experience! It was a blast and my little Avengers heart was so full.

Overall, we got a lot done! Every group’s itinerary will be different, but we couldn’t have asked for a better schedule! If you plan on going to Vegas any time soon or even in the future, definitely check out my other blog to help you save some money and give you some motivation to try some new things! They are always adding new experiences and I can’t wait to rack up some more point and head back there ASAP!
