Re: Casino Event Space Tours

If this is all because some people caused such a scene that DL feels they were "forced" to do this invite-only preview time for their new space, I find that absolutely hilarious.  Of course people are always going to be trollish.  Reacting this way only reinforces their cause.  I'm sure they're probably very happy with themselves that they got this reaction.

 

Besides, I have no idea why there needs to be this big jacket event anyway.  I think it's taking the entire casino experience on home way too far. 

 

In addition to the other comments that have been made about this private space crap, for example, I was astounded when I couldn't get to certain parts of Southern Island Hideaway without paying - parts that I can see but cannot get to.  That sort of strategy to sell those aspects of the space to me, specifically, makes me go out of my way to NOT purchase those spaces. It makes me feel like I'm vehemently being made money off of by exploiting my social urges to hang out with others, right in my face, and I want nothing to do with it as a result.  I think it's a disgusting business practice. 

 

Screw the t-shirt and screw the preview.  I'll see it if it ever becomes public.  If not, OH WELL!

I don't think you understand the concept of free to play.  If Home was 100% free, I doubt it would last this long, including the spaces.  It costs money to keep Home going, along with the numerous spaces.

And I doubt DL wants to make the Casino Event space open to the public.

It's not about what, it's about how. 

 

IMVU.com charges for all sorts of things.  But you don't see them pulling crap like that.

Im curious what this new game is, but I don't want to do a tour yet. Could someone just say what it is, or PM me it? Also, just to confirm, since Im away from the PSH, you get the casino penthouse for having a total earning of 1million, right? or was that the apartment upgrade?

You get the Casino Penthouse for having a total of 1 million earnings.  Not sure if I can say what the game is, but it is coming to the Casino in coming weeks.

Well, as long as it sticks to the gamble theme, then Im fine with it.  Im not sure if Im wanting it to be a card-based game, or something different.  If I knew I had a good partner, I would LOVE to have Eurchre.  And thanks for the penthouse thing.  Sadly, Im only close to 100,000, so I dont see myself getting there anytime too soon, although I did win a pretty good size jackpot for Bingo, twice, so Im able to make much higher stakes on games.

Thankyou to everyone that had a tour so far today, its been really nice meeting and chatting to yall. It really got quite hectic for a while and I was jumping from Penthouse to Event Space so I hope I didnt miss any of you. My friends list did max out for a short while, but I've made room again for anyone else that may have been trying to send me a FR for an invite.

 

I will be stopping soon as I really need a break but will be available again tomorrow for anyone that may have missed out today.

 

All tours still come with a free, although slightly weary, smile Smiley Happy


Thanks for the tour! It was very nice of you to let me grab the footage, too! Smiley Happy

I'm at 147,000, but it takes a long time to get to 1,000,000.    VIP Suite is unlolcked at 100,000 earnings.    
You could ask for a tour of the Penthouse and the Event space.   I did days ago.

Wow! They made you sign an NDA? Who knew!

The above comment is my opinion, unless I state a fact. You can disagree with my opinion, but facts are facts.
