Girl Playing Slots

POP! Slots is a free to download app that will help you to do Las Vegas cheaply.  Even better than you can do with Groupon or a discount travel website.  Using this guide you’ll be able to do Vegas so cheap you’ll be able to extend your vacation!  The first rule of Vegas is that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.  The second rule?  The house always wins.  While that may be true, this POP! Slots app is going to help you to make them pay a little bit first!

*DISCLAIMER– This game is intended for mature audiences.

How To Play

Creating Character

Girl Playing SlotsAfter downloading the free app you will pick a character.  Now there’s not much choice here.  You can choose between 4 female and 4 male avatars.  There is no customization of any type with any of the characters, including the clothing.  Clothing will change to match the theme of the casino you are playing in.  Once you’ve decided on your alter-ego head out to the casinos.

Playing The Games

Now that you’re here you will see that you’ve been given a few free chips to start and there is only one casino open to you. Go inside, pick a seat at one of the slot machines.  Right now you have limited choices as there are only a couple games that you can play.  As you play you will get experience to level up.  Leveling up will allow you to play different slot games.  It also opens up new casinos to play in and increases the number of free chips you earn every two hours.  You earn the free chips whether you are playing or not.

Once you are seated at one of the slot machines, start paying attention to the left side of your screen.  As you and the other avatars at your set of four machines you will start to earn shared balloons.  You want to pop those balloons.  Those balloons give extra free chips, experience, and gold coins.  Those gold coins are where the freebies come in.

If you are on the main screen you can click the rewards button on the bottom left of the screen.  You can also find it by tapping on the gold coins on the top of the screen. This will show you all the different discounts and freebies you can exchange the coins for.

What To Expect

This IS going to be just like Vegas when it comes to the odds of winning.  Sometimes you’re up but most of the time you’re down.  If you have patience then you can do this all for free just waiting for the daily bonus and the additional time bonus every 2 hours.  Both the time and the daily bonus, as well as level advance bonuses, increase as you level up to help with the increased bets you’ll be required to make.

If you are like me and do not have any patience you can purchase chips.  Wait for the contests.  With the continual addition of the short-term contests, there seems to always be a discount on the purchase of chips.

Below are the current reward partners you can exchange the gold coins for.  They are continuously updated and each venue will have different things inside them you can get.  You can get discounted (or even paid for) rooms, food, drinks, and shows.  As well as in some places there are even chips that are awarded at some of the onboard ship casinos.

Besides all the stuff you can get for reduced prices or free it is a fun little app.  Even though it’s always slots, as you level there are different casinos, outfits, and games to keep it interesting.  It’s a good way to unwind and destress without having to use your brain.  So sit back, relax and start spinning!
