I tried getting some feedback from the team behind myVEGAS on how loyalty points were calculated. They gave a vague answer saying it was related to amount of time played, money wagered and other factors.
If you are tired of wagering too much money with too little return keep reading.
Disclosure: As the obvious goes I do not guarantee anything and changes could have been made since this was investigated.
I did the following experiment in the slot game Excalibur while being VIP Level 45. The “sandglas” was emptied and was started as close to empty as possible (did a lot of small bets to get it restarted to empty).
Different amounts of bets were placed until it reached the point where a full sandglas appeared and the 10 loyalty point was transferred to your “stast”. Free play mode is not included in the experiment.
This is what the results were;
3000 x 5 = 15.000 wagered = 10 loyalty = 0,00066 loyalty point per chip wagered
1500 x 6 = 9000 wagered = 10 loyalty = 0,001 loyalty point per chip wagered
600 x 6 = 3600 wagered = 10 loyalty = 0,0027 loyalty point per chip wagered
300 x 11 = 3300 wagered = 10 loyalty = 0,003 loyalty point per chip wagered
150 x 22 = 3300 wagered = 10 loyalty = 0,003 loyalty point per chip wagered
As you can see from the results the clear winner is the amount 300 (150 was equal to this but due to time being a factor as well the winner is 300). One should assume that the higher the better the bet, the higher the loyalty points but this clearly shows that to maximize your return per chip invested 300 is the magic number.
This experiment has not been conducted on more games but an educated guess would be it is similar or close to.
Do you have any other tips and tricks?
