Preparing for your trip – Game Training and Practice

One of the things I do to get ready for a trip is to train and/or practice the games I plan on playing.  For games where skill is involved, it helps me fine tune my skills and serves as a refresher for some of the more intricate decisions.

Here are a few of my favorite pre-trip training and practice options :

myVEGAS Uniquely Vegas Rewards

myVEGAS has added a potpourri of  Rewards for Las Vegas attractions like the Mob Museum,  Madame Tussauds, Las Vegas Pole Position Raceway, Segway Tours  and Gray Line Tours. I think this a  great addition.   The Rewards are  affordably priced, too, with  most of them being under 15,000 LPs.  A few examples are the Gray Line $50 off Grand Canyon bus tour for 10,000LPs,  free audio tour upgrade for the Mob Museum for 5,000 LPs and  a free companion ticket at Madame Tussauds for 7,500LPs.

Much of this information is available on the Playstudio / myVEGAS Support page. I thought a few things were worth highlighting, though.

You can now cancel a room reservation and get your LPs refunded.  “If you booked a show, room, or attraction reward online at and find that you need to cancel your reward for a refund, please  log back into to cancel your reservation and have your Loyalty Points refunded back to your rewards account.” Continue reading More myVEGAS updates

myVEGAS adds “my Konami Slots” app

PlayStudios, the makers of myVEGAS, have added a new “my KONAMI  Slots” app to the myVEGAS family. It is a standalone app (not just a new game in the existing myVEGAS app) featuring Konami slots like Lotus Land, China Mystery and Lion Festival.   The new app has its own daily spin and 4 hour bonus chip collection.   Your myVEGAS Slots  and Konami Slots chip totals are independent of each other, but both apps   sync   to your  existing myVEGAS account and   Loyalty Points.
