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 Third Act you’re tasked with collecting Blue Chips () to unlock each prize!
The second Act 3 prize awarded at 23,600 (or +15,750 from Nero’s Palace Arch) is Nero’s Palace, the perfect extravagant place for compulsive gamblers.
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 23,600 (or +15,750 from Nero’s Palace Arch), you’ll automatically be awarded Nero’s Palace and you’ll see this message popup:
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: Nero’s Palace awards 240 . However, you MUST place it in your Springfield in order to get credit for 240. 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: How appropriate there’s a casino named for a Roman emperor famed for his extravagance.
Fat Tony: It’s named after my uncle Nero, famed for his eggplant parmigiana.
Here are some quick facts about Nero’s Palace:
Build Time: 6 hours
Earns: $150, 13xp/8hrs
Club Card Points: 240 when placed & built
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Consumerism +10
Where Can I Place It?: Grass/Pavement/Boardwalk/Pier
Who Can Use It?: Lou (3hr task: Security Work)
Animated?: It lights up, but no real animation to it. (lights are yellowish in the windows)
And there you have it the details behind Nero’s Palace – the second Act 2 Prize!
Reclusive Mr. Burns, Awarded at 55,150 (or +31,550 from Nero’s Palace). This is the next prize we’ll break down.
So that my friends is the full breakdown of the second Act 3 prize!
What do you think of the Nero’s Palace? Where have you placed it in your Springfield? Thoughts on the Casino Event? Enjoying yourself so far? Sound off in the comments below; you know we love hearing from you!
The palace is the prettiest building that also has placeable walls. I can’t think of the adjective that describes this, but it’s a good thing. Love people’s designs because of it.
I completed yesterday the prizes for Act3 and got all crafting items.
Easter stuff now in your store, but not much to get excited about
I know where I want it but need more land.
Thanks Alissa and Kim,
The animation on this one is a bit underwhelming and so is the height of the building
Did anyone get a message saying we could spend tokens to speed up the process?
The process of spending tokens
Just because everyones probably looks pretty similar so no point including it in my showoff submission, thought I’d post my Nero set up here in case anyone needs some inspiration 😉
I could barely tell it was animated. But with all the other buildings having such amazing lights, I’m very fine with a “subdued” casino.
So Alissa, did you get my email?
Just got the final prize today. 6 days to earn bonus donuts.
I’m about to get Gabbo. It was most helpful saving all those casino coins after act 2, ’twas a great help in kick starting act 3!
Me too! The 5x a win really helped!
Is the Easter portion of the St. Easter event coming tomorrow? Hope to see Shary Bobbins!
Don’t get your hopes up…
I love this event!
I just need more time to buy more land, move, and re-arrange things a little.
I started putting all the casino stuff in Springfield Heights; little was I aware how many buildings I’d be getting!
That’s why EA gave us a strip of land at the east (right) side of Springfield, so I made a Las Vegas like “The Strip”.
It would be fun if we could blow up one of the casino’s. A nice job for the flying saucer from Kan and Kodos.
