Hey there Hoppereenos!
Bouncing by with some help and clarifications on the main “issues” and questions we are seeing during the new Casino Event.
In this post, I am going to go over and Clarify WHY you see TWO Chips Totals in your game as you progress. There is not an issue, nothing is wrong, just a way of EA telling you how much you have for specific areas.
Let’s dive into the details….
PERSONAL PRIZE CHIP COUNT
In the main pop up for the Personal Prizes, you will see how many Chips you will need to earn for each item individually. That means you are ONLY seeing the Chips needed for just that one item. NO OTHER TOTALS.
Here are some examples…
Burns Fountain costs 6800 Red Chips INDIVIDUALLY, you only see the INDIVIDUAL cost in the Personal Prize screen for the Burns Fountain.
Magician Milhouse costs 21600 Red Chips INDIVIDUALLY, you only see the INDIVIDUAL cost in the Personal Prize screen for Milhouse.
This will help you to know just how close you are to getting that one item. Nothing more, so everytime you move on to the NEXT prize you will ONLY see the amount needed for that prize.
If you want to know your complete total, exit the Personal Prizes and look in the Lower Left Corner of your game. The Overall Chip Count is there.
OVERALL CHIP COUNT
As you progress through the Event, ALL your Chips with gather and collect to your Overall Total Chip Count in the Lower Left side of your game screen. This is every Chip you have earned to date. Prizes and all.
Here is an example.
I just started and have only earned 200 Red Chips Overall to date in this part… so 200 Red Chips show in my total.
I have earned EVERY PERSONAL PRIZE in this test game, so my Overall Total will show EVERY SINGLE RED CHIP EARNED to date for those Prizes and then some.
This amount will NOT match the amount in the Personal Prizes as this is, as I noted, the OVERALL TOTAL. EVERY CHIP EARNED. Those amounts are adding every time you get a Red Chip.
Here is the Math of what you may see as you earn each prize
Burns Fountain is 6800 Red Chips
Add to that total the NEXT prize (15900 Red Chips)…
That means you will have earned up to 22700 Overall Red Chips by the time you get the Impulse Wedding Chapel
Add to that total the NEXT prize (21600 Red Chips)…
That means you will have earned up to 44300 Overall Red Chips by the time you get Magic Act Milhouse
Add to that total the NEXT prize (27300 Red Chips)…
That means you will have earned up to 71600 Overall Red Chips by the time you get the Britannia Casino
Add to that total the FINAL Act One prize (29600 Red Chips)…
That means you will have earned up to 101200 Overall Red Chips by the time you get Lucius Sweet and you will have all 5 Personal Prizes.
6800+15900+21600+27300+26900 = 101,200
INDIVIDUAL PRIZE TOTAL
OVERALL EARNED TO DATE TOTAL0
INDIVIDUAL PRIZE TOTAL
The two will NOT match (except right at very start to the first prize) so don’t worry when they do not. If you want to verify your total, just add.
There you have it. A breakdown of just one of the many things you will see during the game. If you want to know how much you have earned to this day, check the overall Total. If you want to know how much more you need to earn for an item, go to the Personal Prize screen.
Did this help you to understand the two totals better? Make sense? Still confused? Let us know.
