Casino 2016 Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 2 Lucky Casino

Special thanks to Kim (kimberlyah794) for helping out with this post.  Y’all may know Kim from the comments and from some guest posts during the Winter and Casino Event.  Thanks for the help, again, Kim!   

Hey, hey, hey, fellow Tappers!

Viva Las Springfield!  The Casino Event has arrived in Springfield…and it’s full of Vegas inspired decorations, buildings and games!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Act containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the Second Act you’re tasked with collecting Green Chips (ico_casino_greenchip_lg) to unlock each prize!

The second Act 2 prize awarded at 18,150ico_casino_greenchip_lg  (or +11,350ico_casino_greenchip_lg from the Newark Newark Sign) is the Lucky Casino.  Bingo!

So let’s take a closer look at this second prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…

Once you’ve collected 18,150ico_casino_greenchip_lg  (or +11,350ico_casino_greenchip_lg from the Newark Newark Sign), you’ll automatically be awarded the Lucky Casino and you’ll see this message popup:

2016-03-11 00.48.45

And you’ll have the option to place it in your Springfield Immediately or Store it in your inventory for later.  Remember, if you store it you’ll have to go into your inventory to place it in Springfield later…

REALLY IMPORTANT: Lucky Casino awards 300 ico_mhub_casino_eventlevel.  However, you MUST place and build it in your Springfield in order to get credit for 300 ico_mhub_casino_eventlevel.  If you store it in your inventory immediately and don’t place in Springfield you won’t get credit for the Club Cards.  You’ll get credit once you place it. So don’t think just because you stored it you’ll never get the Club Card Points.  Just place it in Springfield and the points will be awarded to you.

Once placed in Springfield the casino has some dialogue that pops up:

Gil:  Lucky Casino?!  With a name like that, how could I lose?
Bart:  What if it’s the casino that’s lucky?
Gil:  Ol’ Gil didn’t get to be where he is today by using logic.

Here are some quick facts about the Casino:

  1. I’m 65 points short on my club card points and I’ve completed all tasks and events (minus act 1 _short two prizes) is there any other way I could earn those last points?

  2. This is really a great event! Casinos, flashy signs, gambling, the works. It is also fun some characters light up the casinos. I just discovered the Sea Captain , sails away and that lights up the La Belle casino. Does anyone know who has a task for the Safari?
    Thanks as always for your awesome notes, tips and humour.

  3. Update: I was able to make the tasks come up after I put the buildings away and take them back out. They suddenly appeared. Thanks.

  4. I have the Britannia, Woodstock, and the Lucky Casino but none of the characters that are supposed to have tasks to go with them have any tasks for them. Only their usual tasks show up? Is anyone having this problem?

  5. I have gotten all prizes a couple of days ago, just waiting for the final phase to show up, earning some donuts in the mean time. I don’t care about the final prize characters this event, but I love the casino update! It’s a shame they didn’t offer the Vegas wives for free, that would have been the icing on the cake. I wonder what will be next though!

  6. Casino nessie is my most favorite NPC of all time. Please turn your sound up and tap her.

  7. Ahh, this post finally solves the mystery of the Lucky Casino animation that I kept seeing in neighbours towns 🙂 Now if anyone can please tell me how to get the Community Center to have all those balloons coming out from behind it, (another animation that I am now seeing everywhere ) I won’t feel like I am missing out on something 🙂 cheers.

    • Send someone on a task there.

    • 30 min task “Attend Convention”, I beileve; Apu, and a few others have it.

    • Somebody (Jasper?) being send there by Skyfinger might be the cause.

    • Marion (AnothrAddict)

      Hi Charles
      Several of the characters have a 30 min task “Attend a Convention”. Can’t remember off hand who because there are several but that will make the building animate with balloons. Also if I remember correctly, Lindsey Nagle (spelling?) has a task there too, something about an AA meeting.

      There are some other buildings we’ve gotten this event that animate. Can’t remember the exact tasks but I think the hours on the tasks are correct…
      Lucky casino – Dr Hibbert (6hr task)
      Woodstock – mrs Krabappel (6hr task)
      Impulse wedding chapel – Selma(2hr task)
      Britannia casino- Freddy Quimby(3hr task)

      • Thanks Marion, very helpful – I will try all those tasks you listed 🙂 And thanks to everyone else who replied! Much appreciated.

    • Willie and Quimby have 30 minute tasks there. Attend a convention.

    • Lindsay Nagles 4hr network at an AA meeting task!! Ever since I discovered that I always have her doing it 😊 There’s a few others but I think hers is the longest.

  8. Hi,

    I’ve gotten all the prizes for Act 2. If I keep collecting tokens, will they transfer to Act 3 or reset?

  9. Happy 3.14 (Pi Day) the one day a year we can celebrate perfectly round things and watch Life of Pi and eat pies without guilt and pretend you truely care about mathmatics 🙂

  10. BraveElfgirl1994

    Pi Day anyone???

  11. This is my favorite casino so far. But it must be animated to be at full glory. Looks like Bernice will have to find someone else to argue with.

  12. Assuming we get something for St Patrick’s Day I hope to pick up a few Shamrock Topiary bushes to use with this building 🙂

    • Yes!! I only have 1 of those and they’d go perfect with the casino.

      • Ignore meee 😬

      • Marion (AnothrAddict)

        Hi Ciara,
        I only have one as well….they must’ve given us a free one last year for St. Paddy’s day. I think all I have for st paddys decorations are several green beer fountains and the lonely shamrock topiary. I have it out in front of the Simpsons house but I might move it…. I like Nicki’s idea of putting the decorations in front of the Lucky casino. Some Luck of the Irish for Dr Hibbert.

    • Kim (kimberlyah794)

      That’s a great idea! I’ve got bunches of them in storage, longing for a home. 🙂

    • I immediately pulled out the two topiaries I had in my inventory, and moved one of my green beer fountains. They look perfect with the Lucky Casino, but I would love more!

  13. I can’t seem to get lance Murdock’s quest what should I do now

  14. The Problem Child

    Best. Animation. Ever.

  15. Kim, girl you are on fire with the assisting! 100 points to you! Like Lee said, it really is super pretty when lit up. Placed it with my Duff Stadium & Duff Center Arena

  16. Oooh thick and fast today,
    Thanks Kim and Alissa,
    This casino only looks good when Dr Hibbert is doing his task and it’s lit up
    🙂

    • I DIDN’T mean Kim and Alissa were thick and fast…….
      I meant the posts are coming thick and fast
      😱 😵 😨 🙂

      • lol trying to play catch up before act 3 hits. The episode tie-in pushed some stuff back…

      • Kim (kimberlyah794)

        LOL!!!! Oh my gosh! You made me laugh SO HARD! 😀

        • Well, after I posted the original comment, I thought I hope nobody thinks I mean that, have they even heard of “thick & fast” in the U.S.?
          So I thought I better add a clarification comment, but glad it gave you a laugh
          🃏 🙂

  17. Kind of thought they should have saved this for St. Patrick’s day.

    The name “Lucky Casino” makes me think of the “Lucky Savage Casino” Homer built.

    I did see this in a neighbors town (while part of thier town was possessed) it was flashing on the main part of the building yellow and green (my explination doesn’t give it justice) to bad no one uses the building to see it (just have to wait for it to be possessed).

  18. I had an odd issue where I can’t place Nessy where I want so he was nowhere near the casino. I ended up deleting path behind him until he reached the casino then trapped him there in the relevant event area. You’d think he would auto gravitate to his natural casino habitat.

    • I think Nessie is a lady.

    • I think Nessie lasted 2 maybe 3 days then went back to her loch in Scotland (storage)
      🐲 🙂

    • Kim (kimberlyah794)

      You really have no genuine control over where NPCs roam, unless you do exactly what you did (remove roads and force them to relocate). I ended up being lucky and my Nessie dropped in my casino district, which isn’t attached to any other roads right now, so she hangs around there constantly.
