Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
A few new items went live in our games this morning…and you guys are clamoring for the info. So let’s get right to it and break down the quick details of the Platinum Scratchers, Hostess Miss. Springfield & Chippy!
Before I get into the post…first a note about Players Club points. This is REALLY important, so please pay attention. Players Club points () are NOT awarded until the item you unlock or purchase is placed (and built) in your Springfield. So if you won a prize that’s a building, you won’t unlock the associated points until you place it in your Springfield and it has been built. If you purchase a character, like Cat Hostess Miss. Springfield the points will not be awarded until Cat Hostess Miss. Springfield is unlocked in your town. So don’t freak out you didn’t get the points..check to see that the item is in your town and NOT in your inventory.
Now on with your regularly scheduled post…
Let’s start with the Platinum Scratchers.
These have been in the files FOREVER. They’re basically a more expensive version of the Golden Scratcher, with higher donut payouts. So yes, these cost cold hard cash..not in game cash, actual cash from your real life pockets.
When you enter Springfield today you’ll see this popup from Apu:
Apu: People are winning so much at the casino that no one wants to waste their money on my lottery tickets. Preying on human gullibility is the only way I stay in business. Or wait… what if I tried to provide a great customer experience? No more gouging. To say “Thank you, come again” and *mean* it. Eh, maybe I’ll try and lure those idiots back with a fancier Scratch-R.
The Platinum Scratchers are $7.99 each (USD, your country may have a different cost). And the minimum prize you can win is 100 donuts..and the jackpot is 1,000 Donuts!.
You’ll find them in your Kwik-E-Mart, just like the other Scracthers…
But you’ll notice they’re only available for 3 days…so they are limited time and will leave Springfield on March 4th. So if you wanna try your hand, buy now before they’re gone!
Here’s the prize payouts:
I purchased one and won 115 donuts..
Not very exciting…at least for me anyway.
And a quick reminder…For $4.99 you can purchase 60 donuts and for $9.99 you can purchase 132 donuts. So At a minimum of 100 donuts, it’s not a bad return. Also, remember the Golden Scratcher only costs $0.99 and the Jackpot there is 100 Donuts.
My Opinion… If you’re a premium player it’s worth spending the $7.99 to see what you get, at least once. If you’re a freemium player who never buys donuts or the $0.99 scratchers…why would you buy these then? And if you’re the player who casually buys $0.99 scratchers and occasionally $9.99 worth of donuts it may be worth it to try this out, but I can’t speak for you or your finances.
And now for the new stuff in our stores….
Two new premium items arrived today. Chippy and Cat Hostess Miss. Springfield. (and a rebate deal if you don’t already have Miss. Springfield) Let’s quickly break them down..
