Turbo Tappin’ Springfield Casino: Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Are you feeling lucky?  It’s time to roll the dice cause mama needs a new pair of shoes…as the new Casino update hits our TSTO games!

The update arrived yesterday afternoon and, as with all events, a new questline has lanched to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 1 of this event runs until March 7th…when Act 2 will start.

Remember, the questline is there to guide you.  So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the first Act and unlock everything you need in order to play properly (ie neighbor actions, gamblers to tap, crafting etc).  Just look for the Gold Token Icon ico_casino_gametoken_lg in your task bar.  Any tasks you see associated with that icon are related to the event.  So, if you’re stuck…keep going until you no longer see that token.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just what you need to do to build your own mini Vegas in your pocket-sized Springfield…

  1. Hi how do I get Smithers slot??

  2. Why cant i have the people walking around from the casino my girlfriend gets them but i dont

  3. I really just don’t know the point good getting chips. I get the unlocking of items for eating chips, but I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do with all the chips I’ve accumulated? Or is there no point aside from the things you unlock upon earning them?

  4. It will not let me unlock crafting level 2 in Simpsons tapped out..

  5. I now have 100 gold chips to gamble by Moe or Cletus casino , I can save it for act two , or can I use them better in act 1?

  6. My new B game is only level 14, so I do not have Marge or Moe. I no longer have any “the old man and the ‘sino” quests showing. I think I completed without Smithers, but would I need Marge to proceed beyond that point?

  7. Smithers isn’t triggering in pt.8 I didn’t have Smithers when the Casino Quests startend. Does somebody expierience this too? Do you know what I can do?

  8. I apologize if I am overlooking the answer to my question in a previous post or comment.

    At the Burns’ Casino, I have some premium characters earning rewards there. Before buying these premium characters, the game said they would earn EXTRA rewards. Yet they still earn only 110 chips and 1 token just like the non premium characters for 4 hour tasks. What am I not understanding?

    Thank you so much for your help. This blog is very useful and most appreciated!

  9. I didn’t habe Smithers yet, when the Event startend. Now that I have him he won’t go on with the Casino tasks. Nothing seems to be triggering him.
    Has anybody else experienced this?

  10. I do not get any chips by tapping gamblers in my neighbours springfields after I reach the 2 friendpoints for each tap. Is it normal that it stops after 30 friends a day?

  11. add me at origin, play every day nickname: motta399

  12. I’m stuck on how to “acquire a coaster”

  13. Krusty won’t go to the casino. Everyone else can do that quest line but not Krusty, why?

  14. I’m stuck on a daily challenge. Acquire 5 courtesy coins. How do I do it?

    • You earn them at Gaming Moe’s whenever you don’t win. Just keep spinning those reels and it’ll complete. If you don’t want to wait, just click the X on the task for a different one.
