Hey, hey, Tappers! We’re neck-deep in poker chips here in Springfield and our friends at EA are tempting us to spend something else that is small and round – DONUTS!
There are several new (and one returning) items in the store to tempt you, including the Welcome to Springfield Sign, Limo, and Casino Tokens. Wanting to know if these items are worth spending your precious donuts? Never fear, we are here to give you the run-down on these items!
Decoration: Welcome to Springfield Sign
Donut Price: 35 Donuts
Bonus %: 1% on all cash and XP
Unique: Yes, only 1 per Springfield
Club Card Bonus: 240 when placed.
Premium or Freemium: Honestly, it’s not a bad buy. It’s not terribly expensive and it looks nice with the other casino-themed items. Like any other decoration, if you like it, get it.
Donut Price: 40 Donuts
Bonus %: 2.00% on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +400
Unique: Nope. Buy as many as you like
This is a returning premium item originally introduced way, way back in the spring of 2013 during an episode tie-in.
-Another car for Springfield
–Respectable Moe has a 1-hour task there (Fun in the Limo)
-Without the Respectable Moe skin it’s just another decoration
Premium or Freemium: Honestly, this one is also not a bad buy, even without Respectable Moe. It’s not terribly expensive and it looks nice with the other casino-themed items, plus it’s another fun car for your town. Like any other decoration, if you like it, get it. Sure, there are better deals for the bonus percentage (like the Turbo Bike), but it’s still a decent bonus for the price.
Item: Casino Tokens (a form of event currency)
Donut Price: 10 Tokens for 20 Donuts, 25 Tokens for 40 Donuts
Purpose: Used to play casino games (like at Gaming Moe’s)
Unique: No, can be purchased as often as desired
Premium or Freemium: Stay away – far, far away – from this one. It’s a complete waste of your donuts. You can obtain the tokens for FREE by tapping on Gamblers and when you complete tasks at Burns’ Casino (1 token/4hrs per character that has a task there).
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 bought the sign and limo, but will pass on the tokens. However, these ARE limited-time items. So if you’re thinking about getting them make sure you make your final decision before they leave our games!
What are your thoughts on these items? Will you be spending the donuts to bring them your Springfield (or did you already)? Where have you placed them? Thoughts on the event? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
