They also killed a lot of the tricks used to gain chips. The chip feeds from other people last a pathetically short time now. Evidently, for L57-~L120, the best strategy is 1,000 bets. I've been making decent progress gaining LPs with Around the World doing this while actually ending up positive in chips.



I don't know if it it the "time" that is short or there are a limited number of claims or some combination of both. I am a bit sad that I learned about the chip shares just two days before they killed them. I did friend a few people to get the daily spin bonus, not sure if I will friend any more as I like to keep my FB friend list to people I actually know or have talked to, though I am getting away from that and wondering if having more friends can be leveraged in other ways. My "real friends" are about 80 people from my life of which 10 do 90% of the updates.

Well, CET has a program where you can spam your friends and they give you reward points for it. (I think it's up to something like 300 points a day.)

Here is a question, what is with the "want to be your neighbor" requests?

Agreed, I'm getting some of these requests as well but i don't see anywhere to make someone else my neighbor, or even an easy way to send gifts. Anyone have any insight on either of these?

The new catch seems to be arriving. Everytime you sign in there is some way to get free chips for clicking then signing up to somehting or watching a video. Might be a good sign it will stick around, though I think I will end up trying to get a free room and maybe a meal for a next trip this year then find a new way to waste my time.

I've been playing this a crapload today because it's 2X XP on the crappy Jules Verne games today because it is his birthday. And they have definitely been crappy to me. I have lost over 50% of my chips...blah

That's where I lost most of it...haha

Def ran bad. Will have to grind blackjack for awhile after today. But cleared a few levels though to move up to 74 and now have 149k loyalty points...craziness.

Blackjack kind of rips me apart here. I ended up finishing down 40 units when doing 3 hands a round. Around the World in 80 Days, on the other hand, quadrupled me to about 600k when it first came out.
