MyVegas is an app available to download for your smartphone or play on Facebook. It boasts real Las Vegas prizes for players to cash-in on. When I first heard about this, I thought it was too good to be true, maybe even a scam. So, I tried it for myself. Here’s what I learned from a few hours play.
How to Play:
I started playing on Facebook and like every slot game I’ve ever played in Vegas, I had no idea what I was doing. I pretty much just kept clicking the ‘bet’ button, and kept receiving chips. After I got the hang of it a little bit more, I was able to do automatic spins and bet higher amounts of chips. Within the first half-hour I was at level 5.
Every time you go up a level you get more coins and betting chips. I eventually ran out of chips, and a screen popped up telling me I could buy more with my actual money. This is the part where the app can get scammy. Then again, pretty much every “free” game on Facebook and on smartphones tries to get you to buy more coins, lives, or something of the sort. That $1.99 seems harmless until you fast forward three months and realize you’ve spent nearly $50 on a pointless game. I’m not going to fall for this again. Curse you, Candy Crush!
