Hey Howdy Hey My Elfish Tappers!
Well….unless you’ve been partying a little too hard you know that Elves have taken over Springfield! Elves work hard and party even harder…so much so that even Santa bailed on Springfield! It’s your job to contain the Elves and send them back to the North Pole. In doing so you’ll earn Elf Bells..which will give you some awesome prizes!
With this event EA is repeating a similar prize structure to what they did for Halloween, only more prizes, and releasing the event (and prizes) in stages. For the second phase, which lasts until the event ends (Jan 14th), you can win 8 prizes by collecting Elf Bells. The third prize awarded at 3,700 Bells is the Elf Bottler.
Let’s take a closer look at this bottler and just what happens when you win it in your Springfield…
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 3,700 Elf Bells the Elf Bottler will automatically be awarded to you and you’ll see this popup:
Much like Friendship Prizes, if you’re visiting a neighbor when you hit the 3,700 Bell mark this message will still popup and your zapper will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
Unlike the other prizes…the Elf Bottler will NOT be placed in your inventory. Instead it’ll automatically appear in your game & you’ll see it in the top right corner of your screen:
You don’t need to tap it to activate it…it’s already activated in your town. Simply hold down on the screen and it’ll start up.
You’ll see these bolts on your screen when active:
After you’ve won it some dialogue from Professor Frink will popup. You will then be prompted with the task for it. Here’s the full rundown:
Frink: Ga-hoy, it’s me again. I’d like to help you with an amazing invention to speed up catching elves.
Wiggum: Thanks, labcoat, but I think we can handle this through old-fashioned police work: tasering.
Frink: But that’s what this is! A giant taser tuned precisely to the metabolism of elves.
Wiggum: You’ve done it again, you fantastic brainoid!
Catch Elves withe the Elf Bottler- x20

So here’s the deal with the Elf Bottler:
-Designed to help you speed up catching elves.
-Hold down the screen to activate and keep your finger down as you move across your town to catch all the Elves.
-No conform-o-meter impact.
So that about covers all the details on this Elf Stunner!
