Where Did THAT Come From – Bart’s Casino, Bart Casino Boss, and Magic Act Milhouse

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?


Welcome to Simp-Sin City!

Wowza… EA decided to pull from another classic episode and I couldn’t be more thrilled.  This event is full of Vegas-inspired goodness to build our very own Strips in a non-desert land (although that’s an idea for anyone with lots of cactus patches).  The lights are bright and the casinos are glamorous but not everyone is familiar with all the assorted chips and tokens of the TV Series.  I don’t mind sharing words and images though.  This post is dedicated to one of the side plots from the episode which brought us Mr. Burns’ Casino.  Let’s go find Bart’s Casino, Bart Casino Boss, and Magic Act Milhouse in the Best. Show. Ever.

“$pringfield (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling)” (S5:E10)

After winning a jackpot at Burns’ Casino, Bart is thrown out by a squeaky voiced teen for underage gambling. Bart decides to start his own. In fairness, the SVT gave him the idea. “What are you gonna do? Start your own casino?  In your treehouse?  And get all your little friends to come?  I’d like to see that.”

And Bart shows him.

Bart’s Casino seems to offer all manner of betting… dice, odds on gambling, refreshments… not bad for a casino in a treehouse.  Bart seems to be one heck of a Casino Boss.

There’s even acts including Milhouse the Magician. “Behold the box of mystery.”

And there’s more than just Magic Act Milhouse and Evenings with Jimbo… Bart almost got Liza Minelli for his casino and he completely steals Robert Goulet from Burns.  I love Goulet’s rendition of “Jingle Bells, Batman Smells.”

So there you go gamler-eenos.  The origins for three more items you may or may not have remembered.  I’m super stoked EA included so much from this episode. Sound off with your thoughts and keep it classy like the digital high rollers I know you to be.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

  1. Turns out that Liza Minnelli impersonator was actually Liza Minnelli! *shudders*

  2. tallon8770 ? rick m

    i just won a 92 donut bonus

  3. WTH is going on in my town? I thought Space Invaders was just a video game!!

  4. Has anyone else just got a new ingame update with a quest? (Can’t remember the name)

  5. Just got an update… Feels like an episode tie-in more than a new level.

  6. Just got a new update

  7. What’s the scoop on the new update: Space Is Hot Right Now

  8. While debating on the Bart skin/Tree house combo, a new update came with new premium items.

  9. I just had a strange little update pop with a lot of talking about premium items and green with a new task (looks like a set) Space is Hot Right Now Pt. 1

  10. I found the funniest video. Enjoy

  11. 4kidsandacatdog

    Still think Magic Milhouse should have a task at Bart’s Casino. That would make me buy the tree house skin.

  12. Begin the thawing of Jim Nabors

  13. When the cat is sitting on his chest scratching his face and everyone is applauding cracks me up every time

  14. Lol “Tonight: Milhouse, Next Week: An evening with Jimbo” what is Jimbo planing to do? Standup, singing, punching nerds like instrumental horns?

  15. Goulet: Are you sure this is the casino? I think I should call my
    Nelson: Your manager says for you to shut up!
    Goulet: Vera said that? Hmph.

  16. I would definitely buy Robert Goulet as a character.

  17. Too bad the cactus patch costed so much resources in the sideshow bob event. I only have four when I should have a lot more >-(

    I hope they will bring this item back eventually.

  18. Great episode 🙂

    • I’m still hoping Gamblor and Lisa’s Floreda costume show up in the game.

      • After the event’s over I might move Burns Casino on Squidport next to the Sunken Temple (with Mmunnthhsterrrr [or whatever it’s name is]) to pretend it is “Gamblor” (even though it doesn’t have Neon Claws).

      • I’m Idaho!
