Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well Top o’ the morning to ya Tappers! Happy St. Patrick’s Day….and Happy Casino Act 3! It’s just after 4 am here on the East Coast…and I dragged my tired tushie out of bed to let you know.Act 3 is now live!
Remember…this is an automatic change in your game. Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..
Things should auto-start for you with a task for Mr. Burns (12hrs) and 5 Springfielders (also 12hrs). (if you don’t see it start up it’s most likely because you haven’t placed the House of Cards. You’ll need to place the House of Cards to start Act 3, (questline, prizes will change automatically) which also means you’ll need to finish the Have a Vice Day questline)
Just what does Act 3 have in store for us? Let’s take a look…
First when you login you’ll recieve a free Leprechaun Statue, a gift from EA for St. Patrick’s Day…
New Prize Currency for Act 3..
Blue Chips! (Original right? 😉 )
So the ability to earn Green Chips is now gone. Your counter prize track for Act 3 has reset to 0..because you have 0 Blue Chips. So forget about the green ones and now it’s time to start over with blue.
You’ll earn Blue Chips the same way you earned Green Chips in Act 2…
-Tapping Gamblers, each tap yields 20 (remember Gamblers spawn every 5 minutes, with a max of 60 allowed at once)
-Playing games at Moe’s, Cletus’, & Homer’s (yes, they still require the gold tokens, just like they did for Act 2.)
-Visiting neighbors and tapping Gamblers in their towns. Each tap yields 10..remember only 90 actions/day.
-Courtesy chips . Each time you lose at Moe’s, Cletus’ or Homer’s you’ll earn a courtesy chip. You can cash 10 of those in for 100 . (via crafting menu)
-Sending characters to the Casino. That will yield for each task there. (more on this for Act 3 below..)
-And via the Players Club. Certain levels will earn you more .
Yup, they’re still around…and still the currency you’ll need to play games at Moe’s, Cletus’ & Homer’s
Act 3 Personal Prizes
Before we go into the prizes…first remember you’ll get two different counters for your chip counts. Please read this post if you’re confused.

Act 2 Prizes…
F you didn’t collect them all… you can still access them by tapping on the “ACT TWO PRIZES” tab in the Personal Prizes area. As you can no longer collect items for them, your only option now is to pay donuts to outright by each one left at the point you left off at. (just like every other event)
Same crafting rules apply…check out the crafting post if you’re confused.
One exception…you can now upgrade levels with Show tickets as well as key chains, coasters and martinis.
And I can confirm show tickets are falling from gamblers….in addition to coasters, martinis and key chains.
