Casino 2016 Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 4 Woodstock 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 fourth Act 2 prize awarded at 48,850ico_casino_greenchip_lg  (or +15,900ico_casino_greenchip_lg from Casino Nessie) is the Woodstock Casino.  Groovy, man…

2016-03-11 00.50.39

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

Once you’ve collected 48,850ico_casino_greenchip_lg  (or +15,900ico_casino_greenchip_lg from Casino Nessie), you’ll automatically be awarded the Woodstock Casino and you’ll see this message popup:

2016-03-11 00.50.47

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: Woodstock Casino awards 240 ico_mhub_casino_eventlevel.  However, you MUST place and build it in your Springfield in order to get credit for 240 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:

Lisa:  Finally, a casino that captures the bold revolutionary spirit of the 1960s.
Bart:  Plus performances by every washed-up half-dead rock and roll band of the 1960s.  Seriously, who the hell are ”Led Zeppelin?”

Here are some quick facts about the Casino:

    I enjoyed your post, Kim! I put my Woodstock near the Simpson’s farm. I’m thinking about getting some tents out of storage along with the farmers market. Fun event! I really like Nessie.

  10. I don’t think it looks like a casino at all, I think it looks like an outdoor concert. I put it by the recycling center and farmer’s market, added a couple tents and some trees, and lured a couple hippies there (although of course Mona wandered away.) I wish Otto’s visual tasks weren’t linked to the bus, he’d look great near the stage or campground sleeping it off.

    Anyway, I really like it there and I’m glad to save the space on my Vegas strip for more casino-looking casinos.

  13. Don’t store the Woodstock casino! It earns $300 a day. Like another player, I also placed it near the farm, which includes Cletus’s Dice Den and Moonshine Shack. Evergreen trees adorn the back of the casino and four colored spotlights flash in the front of it non-stop. Looks like Cletus and his brood will have a wonderful time!

  14. One thing I love about this and the Britannia and Cletus’s dice game are I feel I can design them elsewhere. All the others I feel the need to cram into a casino area so they don’t stand out and personally I think Vegas is the most vile disgusting city there is. So I don’t really want a casino area but the building designs are brilliant.

He keeps telling me it’s like NY but he keeps describing Times Square and as any New Yorker knows Times Square is for tourists only. I used to live a block away and was an expert at avoiding it.
            To me Vegas is all flash, all show, glitter, glitz and as fake as fake can be. I prefer places with some substance. I’d rather see the fountains in Vienna or the trees in Savanah. Some people enjoy that stuff, just not me.

He’s never been here but would love to see his reaction. My neighborhood is only 30% white. A mutual friend did come visit and he stayed with a friend of ours in Williamsburg South just across the JMZ lines. It’s the second biggest orthodox Jewish neighborhood in the city. I had to work one day while he was here and he didn’t think he could find his own way to Coney Island by himself. So I told him just to walk down Bedford and he’d find all these cool vintage stores, record stores and coffee shops. After work I called him and he hid in the apartment all day, he was scared of the jews. I could not stop laughing. It’s on the top ten list of the safest neighborhoods in the city. Amazing how even really liberal people can be scared of what they don’t know.

People different from you aren’t scary in fact the more different someone is than you, if you can find a way to connect and relate it’ll be the most insightful conversation you could ever have.

He refuses to drive due to his stance on cars but so do I. He’s brilliant but you can only talk to him metaphysically. Which I’m fine with. It just makes it hard for him to be social. The relation between circles and spirals doesn’t get you laid and he’s really lonely. I think he’s gay and hiding behind the trap door in the back of the closet but that’s just my opinion

And he may be gay, but it could just be the Asperbergers/autism/whatever that’s interfered with his ability to date or form a sexual/romantic relationship.

People from LA in particular were so laid back about it, I talked to people who didn’t even know what town they were in when the accident happened. I don’t have patience for stupidity. At the time I was living in South Dakota where they live at a tortoise pace. The New Yorkers were much more to the point. Look, I only have five minutes here, let’s just do this and we had to ask basic information and they would just get so angry, you already have that in file, why are you wasting my time etc… look sir I’m required to ask this and the less time we spend arguing the quicker we finish. No one else I worked with could do that, they were too polite. And at the end of these calls I got really good surveys. They would always thank me for streamlining the process and making it quick.i guess they had me do it is because I could be a dick where others backed down to aggressive behavior. Suppose that’s why I myself quickly assimilated into being an angry, bitter, cynical New Yorker.

It was really a lot of fun checking out all of the different hotels/casinos from the top to the bottom of the strip. I was there during the week, so there weren’t a bunch of rowdy drunks roaming around or anything…in fact, what struck me most there was that, unlike other fun places like WDW, everyone seemed to be so relaxed and having a great time (maybe because they didn’t have their cranky kids there to deal with?). I also got to see the big Star Trek theme place (gone now), and thought it was super cool to get to walk onto the bridge of Enterprise-D and down one of its interior hallways.

          I have a lot of good (and fun) memories of my trip there (spend less than $20 gambling the whole time, I think…it’s where I first tried and enjoyed penny slots – getting, like, 2 hours worth of entertainment for about $5 at the machines (the slots in Vegas seemed a lot looser than the ones at the Indian casinos near-ish where I live), plus free drinks!

          I don’t necessarily feel the need to ever go back, but I do think it’s worth going there, even if it’s just once. It really is pretty cool!

And you think, I know this is really riculous and gaudy and tacky, but, man, it actually is also kinda cool, too!

              It’s like, if you go half measure, it looks worse than none, but if you go way, way over the top, it actually comes round to being great (at what it is). Well, that’s Vegas.

      My wife’s parents have a time share there and we have taken them there several times. You could spend days just walking through the Themed Casinos. Drive to Hoover Dam and tour. Drive west to Red Rock Canyon and enjoy a quiet walk in the trees and stream. A fabulous Thai restaurant on the north east end of town in a decrepit mall. Enjoy the warm morning weather around the pool. Drive to Panrump where the Snowbirds bring their RVs. Drive further to Death Valley or the town of ZYZYZX. The casino Sam’s Town and it’s free show. Free shows.
      I wouldn’t live there, but every few years, it is a hoot to visit. Gambling gets boring. The outdoor and wilderness activities are less known, but good.

Since I only travel by bike or foot walking by all those yards around individual houses seems like such a waste of space. I’m not judging those who like that stuff, I’ve just never understood it. Beaches, mountains, fresh air, just don’t get it. My family always wants me to go camping when I visit, not happening.
        And Vegas to me seems like a city without culture. Sometimes I think I’d make a better European than American. Pop culture just doesn’t appeal to me.

It kind of sucks because I really want to decorate with fountains and stars, but I don’t want to be short for the big prizes. I guess I can decorate later. I also wish we could be earning tickets now. I got level 3 a few days ago and expected to be able to earn them. I got level 2 so close to the end of act 1 that I didn’t realize we didn’t earn martinis until act 2 started.

      Mine’s hanging out in my casino area right now, but I plan on relocating it to my “rural” district. I have a farm I’ve built up around Abe Lincoln’s cabin, plus I’ve got the Spuckler farm, and the Old Simpson Farm. Come to think of it, for me, the perfect place will be at the Old Simpson Farm. Somehow that just feels right that Abe Simpson accidentally hosted Woodstock. I can just imagine him screaming at the hippies. LOL! 😉

        Lol, I could totally see Abe all worked up over the hippies! But I’m with you on the Woodstock casino. I currently have mine in the casino area as well but I also think I’m going to put mine by the old Simpson farm. I have a camping area set up there as well…I think it should all go together well! Great minds think alike. 🙂

        Also, thanks for the posts. I’m sure Alissa, Bunny, and Wookie are happy to have the help.
