Halloween Magic…Free Donuts!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with something real quick.  Once again EA has made it even easier to earn free donuts during this event!

Just like Homerpalooza, EA’s done something a little different (and in my opinion BETTER) for Halloween….you can now earn bonuts BEFORE you’ve completed the prize track! In this case, once you’ve completed the main questline, Update: You may have to finish the Bart/Lisa Wizard side quest to see it. Also listed in the TT post linked you’ll see the bonus round popup:

So for every 5,000  you collect after finishing the questline, you’ll have a chance for 1, 2 or 3 donuts!

This is great because now if you, for some reason, don’t make it to the final prize on the Act 1 prize track you can still earn free donuts!  And you’ll earn free donuts just for getting to the final prize.  You’ll earn at least 1 round of bonuts before you get to the end!

Remember, to trigger the bonus round you’ll need to complete the Act 1 questline.  Turbo Tapping version can be found here.

Pretty sweet change in my opinion!  No tricks here, this is definitely a treat this Halloween!

  1. Worst update ever. Building and crafting items are lame. I have no use for then in my springfield. Stopped playing this event after the free land prize.


  2. “Once again EA has made it even easier to earn free donuts during this event!”
    Wouldn’t exactly say it’s easier to earn donuts at this event compared to earlier events.
    Even though you can start after finishing the main quest line you really have to work hard to get two rounds of free donuts. At this event you need 5000 wands to get free donuts. That’s almost half of the wands you need to get the main price! At many earlier events, if you hang in, it was possible to finish 3-4 days before deadline and you also was able to earn more than one
    round of free donuts every day. I often had 6-8 rounds of free donuts during each part of earlier events if I wasn’t slacking. This time I consider it luck if i manage two rounds during the first part of the event.


  3. Will anyone actually earn bonuts? If we’re only getting 2 per troll, it will take 2500 trolls to earn the 5000 needed for a single round of bonuts.


  4. I have an issue, and wondered if anyone else has the same thing:
    I am using a kindle, and when I resume my game, it shows the “thankyou for your purchase” tile, and I have about 120 more donuts..
    (I originally put this down to thee dog stomping on it, but the second time it happened the cover was closed) I am getting no e-mail confirmation or purchase history showing up, as i would normally do. So It looks as though i am not being billed, which is fine, but I don’t want this to catch up with me. Any ideas?


  5. I’ll take as many Bonuts that I can (makes up for the fact 1/2 of the Craftables long time Tappers can’t recraft – especially Buildings that earn $ and XP – during this poorly executed Event brought you by EA)!


  6. In the spirit of easy bonuts this Halloween, has anyone noticed that the Railroad Project Board, where you used to earn 5 bonuts per week, is now running continuously? It used to be that after you were done turning in recyclables and earning blueprints, you earned 5 bonuts and the processes were marked completed. They would reset the following Tuesday. But now after the 5 donuts earned, you are back at the start to do it over and over again. I don’t know if this will be a permanent thing, but it sure is a welcomed thing.


  7. So, so, SO disappointed in this year’s update.
