Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Casino Event 101: My Chip Count Doesn’t Match

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….  Continue reading

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…

Casino 2016 Calendar: Act One

Hey there Gamblers!!

Do you know when to hold them, when to fold them, when to walk away, when to run? Do you ever count your money when you’re sitting at the table? WELL KNOCK IT OFF! PAY ATTENTION TO MY POST! Sheesh! 😛

I wasn’t joking when I said EA was going to drop something for us to “toss/throw our money at” or for DaPimp… scantily clad women to serve him free drinks. They even had a pop up for it. You’re welcome DaPimp!

Let a Floozy Bring You A Drink

IT’S CALENDAR TIME!! (Hi, Sandra & Big Phil. Tracy… I am watching you o.O )

Viva TSTO! The Casino Update has Arrived!

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.

See this post

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…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So with all these free donuts going around in TSTO we’re seeing more and more comments from fellow Tappers asking which Premium Character/Building combo is the best to buy?  What’s your favorite?

Now Bunny, Wookiee and I laid out our favorites way back in 2014 in this post.  And every year we ask you guys for your favorites in our blogiversary poll (you can see 2014 here and 2015 here).  But since that some new characters have been released and maybe some preferences have changed…so today we want to know What Premium Character/Building Combo is your favorite?

Hopefully I got them all…

Which character/combo is your favorite and why?  Which is your least favorite?  Which one do you think is a best buy?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!


From the Mouths of Addicts: The End Isn’t Near

The following post was submitted by one of our Addicts Regulars..Totbox.  Perhaps you’ve seen Tot in the comments a time or two ;)…

Hello all you Paranoid-ereenos,

First and foremost, make sure you are taking your medication as your doctor prescribed, don’t forget to contact your physician if this is a medical emergency.

(Wish somebody told me that before the police found me running down the middle of the street half naked that one time –true story– but that’s not what this post is about)

Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So…here is your Open Thread. The Simpsons are back this week with an all new episode!  Are you excited for the new episode?  Valentine’s Day ended in Springfield earlier this week, did you manage to unlock Mona?  And in it’s place we got some new “busy work” in TSTO…in the form of the Redwood Tree.  What are your thoughts on the Redwood Tree?  What do you think will be next in TSTO?

Baseball is back!  As teams reported to Spring Training this past week…I know i’m excited!

Anyone else a child of the 80s and 90s?  If you are, are you just as excited about Fuller House as I am?  Seriously thinking about binge watching it on Friday!  (yes I know I’m a nerd…have you not figured that out already? 😉 )

How was your weekend? Do anything fun and exciting?  Can you believe this is the last full week in February?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!
