Should I Spend Donuts on the Vegas Wives?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Viva Las Springfield!  Bring on the Casinos, as it’s Vegas time in Springfield!  So bust open that change purse and stock up on donuts because there are loads of Vegas inspired items in our stores!

Now with all this new content I know you may be trying to if any of it is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it!  We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Vegas Wives to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these hangover hookups to your Springfield!


Characters:Ginger Flanders (Red dress) and Amber Simpson (Purple Dress)
Donut Price: 115 donuts

Yes, these are TWO separate characters. They each come with their own set of tasks.. 

Leave Our Games March 29th

-Comes with a quest line (1 questline)
-Premium character earns 50% more on all cash and XP
-Earns 955 Club Card Points when Purchased
-Great price for TWO premium characters

-At least as of Act 1, they serve no benefit to the Event.  They won’t earn currency (other than the Club Card Points from purchasing)
-Not voiced.

Final Thought:
Grab em!  The price for two premium characters is hard to resist if you’re a premium player!  They each have their own set of tasks as well, so it’s not like Sherri and Terri where they share a set of tasks.  Even though they won’t help with the event, I still say pick them up.  It’s the best premium for a stand alone premium character (works out to 57.5 donuts each).

I think they’re a good buy.  However, because they don’t currently help with the event I would say wait to buy them.  See if there’s anything else that’s released that you’d like to pick up instead.  Then if at the end of the event you still have the donuts available, pick these two up!

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell you I’ll be adding the wives to my Springfield.   However, they are limited-time.  So if you’re thinking about getting them make sure you make your final decision before they leave our games on March 29th

  1. Something maybe not realized at the time, but now that they’re back, Amber Simpson counts as a Simpson so event tasks that requires require multiple Simpsons to complete, she can be used for. This is very handy in case you need the main 4 for monorail tasks or other event tasks

  2. i am a freemium player and a long time fan of this site – thanks for the awesome work you guys do! im seeking an opinion though. in act 1 of this event, i got lazy and didnt tap enough to get lucius (sadface) – i only have enough donuts to get him (80 donuts) or the vegas wives (115 donuts) – do you think the vegas wives are the better buy? thanks in advance 🙂

  3. I just caved and bought the vegas wives but I didn’t get my Casino Club Points 😠
    Since these are proving to be the most difficult to get part of the reason I bought the wives were for the additional points. I’ve never had to contact EA before, any help would be appreciated, Thanks xx

    • I just purchased them today and I didn’t get the points either.

        I too caved and bought them today. I, though, Leveled up THREE times in my Players Club – am now just shy of the Gold Tower. 900+ points did wonders.

    My Vegas wives dissappeared I can’t seem to find them! Anyone have this issue as well and might possible know the solution to fixing this?

  5. Sadly, I don’t think I can get them… I could’ve, but then they started doing Casino Daily Challenges. I’m about 20 donuts short D:

  6. Don’t know If it was a glitch but my boyfriend some how got these two for free! I’m really annoyed as I don’t see how and he doesn’t remember how…has anyone else had this or was it just a lucky glitch?

  7. Thanks for weighing up the info Alissa,
    Sounds like a good deal, but I would need to invest in another truckload of d🍩nuts first…..I’ve never been so low on donuts

    no join tasks with Ginger and Amber together? I think EA lose an oportunity here….

  9. I think there is a dearth of ladies in my town. I might get them after I earn enough donuts towards end of event. Somehow I feel I need to get these two characters who seem to need love and support. 🙂

  10. Shouldn’t amber be a ghost since she is supposedly dead in the Simpsons.
