    Wow, level 3, that is a pretty harsh cut.

    My doomsday scenario just moved to 2 minutes to Wynn Midnight.

    You're right "core market" was probably not the best descriptor. What I meant by that was "People who are willing to pay for "freebies" who might also be decent players at their casino"

    Probably much more accurate.

    I'm VIP level 2 and I have 11,500 VIP points.

    In 17 days, those points get zeroed. I will maintain level 2 for 90 days beyond that time.

    Am I right understanding that if I pay to upgrade to level 3 now, I'll have to buy 8,500 VIP points, but if I wait until after the next 17 days, I'll still be level 2 but would have to buy 30,000 VIP points to get to level 3?

    I believe level 3 is 20,000 points, = $200 max spend.

    It is impossible to get to level3 with 1 VIP point for wheel spin and gold chest and 2 VIP points for a short event. I have 9233 VIP points now with 17 days to reach 10000 just to maintain level 2, I don't know if I can make it now. I wont' be able to redeem the gems for any room unless I buy coins to upgrade to level 3. does anybody know if they also raise the gems needed for a room? I can't see it any more. I guess I will just use the gems for buffets before they raise the gems for that, there is no real advantage for maintaining level 2 now, you can't redeem more than 2 buffets at a time any way. I will just redeem my buffets. We use to get 3 nights free rooms with my husband's red card, they have cut it to stay 2 nights, get 3rd night free. We will just stay with CET hotels instead not give Wynn any of our money.

    Yes, the room rates fluctuate depending on demand and ongoing tightening by the app. They also become available on certain busy dates as they fill up.

    Glad I got my mostly-free stays out of the game when I did!

    Good chance my stay there next week is my last, unless I get some decent teaser offers after getting a Red Card.

    My sister received an offer a couple of months ago to advance to level 3 from level 0 for $50, I think they should make offer like this at this time to at least let people with a lot of gems already to use them to redeem rooms for less money. But I have never received offer like this, so I think it is unlikely they would do this now.

    I can see the room prices, at least for now....they don't appear to have increased (actually, the dates I was looking at decreased earlier this week)... let me know your dates and I'll provide.

    Thanks for the reply, I don't know if I want to spend $100 to advance to level 3 while we still have free room offer with free credit until end of March. I have 9234 vip points now. I was planning to use the free room for my brother in law, but not worth spending that much now unless he want to pay the $100 himself. Thanks anyway.

    Same situation we are in...My account is level 3 and was going to book 3 nights for wife and I for June, but my wife's sister is making her virgin Vegas trip with us....was going to use my wife's account to book 2 nights for SIL, but her account is level 2 with ~8000 points... It looked pretty good to be able to buy 2000 points, but 12,000....ummmmm...gotta rethink this game plan.

    I would have try to complete all events instead of just the long event if I had known this is coming. It is too late now. No way I can make in in 17 days to level3. 9234 vip points will be completely wasted.

    I guess we'll let you join...
    If you know when you want to go, you'll save money buying into VIP level 3 before your VIP points reset to 0.

    Some people on the Wynn Facebook group think they will roll this back because it was so harsh. I wouldn't hold my breath.

    I think they would do something to make it less harsh too, but they may not do it in 17 days when my points will reset to 0 and back to level 1
    . I will still keep playing just in case. I think they should at least make the room available for level 2, then I will spend some money to maintain it to level 2.

    Cosmo for the most part...I think?
    i earned well over 12K gems without spending a penny. it was over the course of the past 8 months or so. earning coins was easy with the scratchers for me. the instant that i spent that $50 for getting to VIP 2, though, everything stopped working for me as far as earning coins goes.

    and now they just upped it to VIP 3 to book rooms and as far as i can tell, it's impossible to get more than 2500 VIP points per 90-day cycle, so it's going to cost at least $175 to get to VIP 3 from now on. yeesh.

    can't complain at all, though.

    Your were real lucky being able to redeem the gems for room before they updated it. I can only use my gems for buffets now although I have enough gems for 2 nights stay. I thought for sure I will be able to maintain level 2 and able to book room for March. I am glad that at least I was able to book a room for 2 nights and couple of buffet in Nov. last year when I spent $50 to buy coins to advance to level 2.

    I broke my piggy bank day before yesterday so I can maintain VIP level 2, it is now saying that VIP point will reset to 0 in 89 days and VIP level will reduce to VIP 0, I thought it would be reduce to level 1 from level 2, not to 0, did this happen to any of you? I wouldn't have spend any money if I have known this is going to happen.
