Game Reset Back to Level 1 Info: If you did not have an EA/Origin Account we’re seeing LOADS of reports of this update completely erasing your game because you were playing anonymously. If that’s you and you didn’t have an EA/Origin Account, your game is most likely completely lost. You can try to contact EA and see if they can restore it for you, but I doubt it’ll happen.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s time for a little gambling in Springfield, as the Casino updated teased on Facebook last night, has arrived on our devices!
This is an APP STORE update. So check out your App Store to make sure you’re on the latest version. If you don’t see the update try hard closing and restarting and/or restarting your device. Again it’s an APP STORE update, so you’ll have to pick it up from your App Store updates.
Currently it’s live on iOS..everyone else should see it soon. It’s currently live on iOS, Android and Kindle!
It starts off with some dialogue from Quimby…and you’ll need 4 Springfielders free for a 6s task. I’ll be back with more as i go through it…
Before I get to the update…just a note. They’ve added a “
copy cut and paste” tool! To access it go to your move menu (4 way arrows)
And then drag your finger to select an area:
You’ll then be able to “
copy cut” that area and “paste” it anywhere in your Springfield! AMAZING for redesigns!!!
Now onto the update…
After you’ve completed the 6s task mentioned above you’ll be tasked with placing the Burns Casino. It’s a FREE building, 8×8 in size. And is an instant build. (well 6s). You’ll also be tasked with sending 4 ADULTS to get a free drink (also 6s).
You’ll then launch the “start” of the event and see the basic info screen…
You’ll then unlock the prizes for Act 1 (3 Acts again)…
You’ll also unlock new items in the store… (pretty much ALL premium..just an FYI).
And you’ll need Homer, Cletus & Moe free for another 6s task. Followed by the need to place Gaming Moe’s (also free & 5×6 in size. Also a 6s build).
Gaming Moe’s is where you can play Casino games…if you have tokens.
I’ve got to go pickup Riley now, but i’ll be back to update more once I get home. Now that a certain little girl is asleep I can update you guys…
The basics are pretty simple. For Act 1…Collect red chips to earn prizes. Collect gold tokens to “gamble”. Nice and simple right? 😉
Let’s break down the simple stuff first…
ACT 1 “ends” March 7th…I say “ends” because it says new prizes added. My guess is if you don’t unlock them you can buy them with donuts…
Act 1 Prizes
Burns Fountain- 6,800 (Earns 120 Club Card Points)
Impulse Wedding Chapel- 22,700 or + 15,900 from Prize 1 (Earns 240 Club Card Points)
Magic Act Milhouse- 44,300 or +21,600 from prize 2 (Earns 360 Club Card Points)
Britannia Casino- 71,600 or +27, 300 from prize 3 (Earns 240 Club Card Points)
Lucius Sweet- 101,200 or +29,600 from prize 4(Earns 595 Club Card Points)
You will see after you win a prize the counter starts back at zero. And you’ll have to earn the second number listed here (where it says or +….). That’s how many you have to go to claim the next prize. The first number is the running total of chips you’ll need. So you need 101,200 TOTAL chips to unlock all the prizes for Act 1….

As far as Gold Tokens for the Casino… they can be earned a couple of ways…
-Via Tasks at Burns Casino. You’ll not only earn chips but you’ll also earn tokens for each task you complete. 1 /task.
-Tapping gamblers. Occasionally tapping gamblers will generate a
Once you’ve hit the Going Abroad task (launches after The Old Man and the ‘Sino Pt. 6) you’ll unlock neighbor actions. You can tap Gamblers in your neighbor’s towns to earn chips. 10 /tap.
Once you’ve completed The Old Man and the ‘Sino Pt. 7 you’ll start to unlock crafting.
You first must do the task for Willie…Craft Plunk…Willie will trigger it. Once that’s complete you’ll unlock the Guide etc…
Here’s a quick breakdown of what you can craft…

Ficus Plant- 5 and 5 (Can have 2)

Constant Fountain- 10
Sequence Fountain 1- 10
Upgrade Tier- 50
Upgrade Tier- 40
100 Red Chips- 10
There are several items that are immediately locked…still playing to see if they unlock with the next act or if something you do unlocks them
You can earn crafting currency via Moe’s Casino and Tapping Gamblers. Also, some characters have tasks to earn crafting currency We’ll break it all down in another post…
You’ll notice some of the premium items in store say that they award club cards. Club Cards are the “VIP” portion of the game.
So from what I see…the more club cards you earn (looks like there are other ways outside of Premium, that’s just a quick way) the more chips, tokens, crafting currency etc you’ll get. It’s got it’s own bonus prize track.
You can also earn cards via unlocking the prizes….
We’ll break this down in another post, after I’ve had some time to play around with it more.
After you’ve unlocked all of the prizes you can earn bonuts! For every 8,500 you collect you’ll get the chance for bonuts via the prize box. You can win 1, 2 or 3 donuts.
There’s a new strip of land at the bottom of Springfield (opposite the mtns) from the ocean over.
And that’s it on the Casino update…for now. Over the next couple of days we’ll break down all of the finer details of the event…including a calendar and the Should I Buy Guides. It’s all coming, I promise 🙂
