From Bellagio to Caesars Palace to MGM Grand, some of the most iconic casino properties dominate the Las Vegas landscape. It's possible to stay in these luxurious resorts for free once you know the tricks to scoring a deal in Sin City.
In partnership with MGM-Mirage resorts, PlayStudios introduced in 2012 the Facebook game myVegas, which allows that site's users to play virtual slots and build a virtual Las Vegas Strip to earn loyalty points that can be redeemed for plenty of freebies at MGM-Mirage casinos, including rooms. Through this program you can stay at such properties as New York-New York, Aria and Monte Carlo for free. The caveat is sometimes the hotel charges a per-night resort fee, but it's inconsistently applied; plenty of travelers report not being charged the fee.
When you play games, eat or shop in a casino, be sure to sign up for that property's loyalty program first. You'll get a players card you can present to earn points during your time there. Once you earn enough points, you can redeem them for complimentary perks that include free rooms. Some loyalty programs list the point redemption structure on their websites. If you're in the casino, check at the rewards desk for more information.
