Casino Event Prize Guide: Act 3, Prize 3 Reclusive Mr. Burns

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 (ico_casino_bluechip_lg) to unlock each prize!

The third Act 3 prize awarded at 55,150ico_casino_bluechip_lg  (or +31,550ico_casino_bluechip_lg from Nero’s Palace) is Reclusive Mr. Burns, complete with tissue box shoes and what I hope is a long mustache and not extra-long nose hair…

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

Once you’ve collected 55,150ico_casino_bluechip_lg  (or +31,550ico_casino_bluechip_lg from Nero’s Palace), you’ll automatically be awarded Reclusive Mr. Burns 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: Reclusive Mr Burns awards 480ico_casino_clubcardpoints_lg .  You can’t store him so you should earn them immediately upon unlocking the prize.

  1. Will Gabbo and Arthur become available, I missed getting them due to illness? It should be made available for people who missed getting them, due to not being able to play for only a day or two. Will they be made available for donuts?
    Thanks, Christy

  2. I wasn’t able to get Gabby a and Arthur. Is there anyway to get him, and what about reclusive a Burns? I worked so hard trying to get everything, but could get him. Any ideas, or if he will be offered later? Thanks, Christy Sent from my iPad


  3. So I just got Reclusive Mr. Burns.. And his questline didn’t trigger.. Also I was on Maggie’s quest.. The one where you get a mini game at the end.. I forget the name, The Beginning of the End maybe? But anyway, I returned with Homer to Springfield, from Krustyland.. And the questline disappeared.. Any idea what I should do? Also, after I had 4 or so Springfielders come back from “Drinking Off St. Patty’s Day” that quest disappeared as well.. Aahhh!!

  4. Does the roller coaster work on the Safari Casino, if so how do I start it?
    Thanks, Christy

  5. I finally got wifi in my new place today.

    I have 4 days to get as many prizes as I can so frantically tapping. I think at this stage, any of the large prizes in the crafting part are out because I’m not at level 3 (and this is why I am against all the ideas of levelling up- unless you tap constantly- and get lucky with the drops- there is just no way. I missed about 5 days and there is now no chance at all of getting the bigger prizes if I still have to get 200 items to level up).

    I’ll be happy if I get the Chinese theatre but not too sad if I miss out on Gabbo.

  6. I have just finished his quest line and am currently working on Gabbo’s quests, I like the news Burns look and remember the episode it came from fondly 😀

  7. Hi Guys,

    Great job as always.
    Quick question. I know it has nothing to do with this post but wasn’t sure where to put it.
    Did anyone else get a whole lot of Easter stuff pop up in their game to purchase? Also any idea when the Easter event might actually start? Especially now that all the st. Pats day stuff is gone.

  8. I know there’s no rush to complete this questline, but I wish they wouldn’t put out two questlines at the same time that use mostly the same characters (i.e. the Act 3 casino questline). It’s especially annoying since so many of the tasks are pretty long.

    • Yes, I’ve been so focused on getting all the prices that I haven’t wanted to send anyone towards the quest. I’m still on Act two questline. I’m working on getting Gabbo now so I’ll go back to the quests when I get the last prize.

      • Everything is very achievable though – I finished the prizes with 7 days to spare, so now I’m just collecting bonuts, and have finished all the quests except Gabbo. I’m back to building my tree that I put on hold before this all began!

  9. maybe a little off topic, but does anyone know if there is a way to view all the different character collections? I vaguely remember someone mentioning a “character collection screen” but i have never seen it. thanks!

  10. Thanks Alissa and Kim,
    I was sharing Mr Burns and reclusive Mr Burns between tasks, but having read this, I think I’ve finished the questline for reclusive Mr Burns.
    Trouble is I usually have him making coffee so he doesn’t get to dress up very often, would like to use the UBO skin more often, maybe when I’m a billionaire (in about a year)

    At this moment I’m 9,000 chips from getting Gabbo, and Homer is running around changing light bulbs, and I’m visiting neighbours on my phone while typing this on my tablet, (there’s less crap on my phone so it works faster)
    Did anyone else notice how expensive 💲 that big tree gets towards the end? It will be finished tomorrow 🌲
    How is everyone else doing on the tree?

    Hey Brooders (and your scary doll club….)
    When you get the wood chipper….you can put Gabbo in it!
    I really should get paid for these ideas

    • Sorry I was just saying thanks for the post but it turned into a “Sandraesque” life story 🙂

      Sandraesque: san-dra-esque… Adjective
      When something goes on longer than necessary

      oh dear that will be two days running that I’m in trouble
      Love ya Sandra 💐 🌺 🌹 🌻 🌷 🌼 🌸 😜 🙂

        Imagine the trouble you’d be in if your gender differed.
        Since mine does, I am torn between “liking” your addition to the dictionary and being “afraid” to. I don’t know whom to annoy, er , “disagree” with.

      • Blimey Lee , you’re really poking the bear at the moment lol. Watch it , if she bites , she’ll have your fingers off at the elbow mate. 🙂
        Btw , thanks for the post Kim. 🙂

    • After finishing the tree I had to start over saving for my last few squares of land. I just got past 750 mil for estates, and it feels like it will take forever to finish! But I’ll keep plugging away.

    • Gabbo scared the wits out me earlier as I tapped on the casino he came out hidden amongst the chips! Plus he’s been busy chatting away with anyone who sits on a bench nearby….or in fact on his lap!

    • Hey Lee , like your woodchipper idea . Only problem is , in my horror film inspired world , there’d be thousands of mini Gabbos coming out the other end ! 🙂

      • Hey Phil, hope you’re ok,
        I’ve got Gabbo now, and finished my tree this morning, so you can see the picture of Gabbo staring down the barrel of the wood chipper on the open thread

  11. Looks good, shame I’ll never use him. The extra cash from the gorilla vest Burns means that is all I’ll ever use if I’m not making bits of railway.

  12. Cool, yeah, I wish I got the Bart outfit before it went away, but…oh well, at least I have just about everything else and gained a few stars thanks to crafting lots of extra stuff…

  13. Hands down best prize of the event. Now if I could just see him! He’s been in the power plant or casino non stop.
