Let me start this off by saying this is not a definite game-wide issue. BUT, since the last update there have been reports around the “donut” that the prompt for the Spooktacular Bonus Round has changed or there’s something wrong with it. And for any in-game issue that garners enough attention we are here to bring it to your, well…attention. A good, loyal reader and friend, John, brought this to Emma’s attention and since discussing it with other friends and writers there seems to be 3 different outcomes that are happening when you reach 2000. This, of course, is regarding the Spooktacular Bonus Round that each player receives AFTER collecting 10,000 and have received all of the Personal Prizes. It is the opportunity to win a maximum of 3 for every 2000, for those of you who do not know.
What is supposed to happen when you have reached the required amount is that the bonus round automatically initiates. That is what has been happening since the option activated in everyone’s game. However since the last update apparently for some people the bonus round is not automatically prompting instead, it is requiring the player to actually tap the candy icon in the Task Book and then the See Prizes button. This is what happened to John and what prompted the research into the problem.
Here are a few images to show what I mean:
Now for anyone paying attention throughout the event, the See Prizes button is always there when you tap that annoying, terribly annoying yellow finger at any point under 2,000 but what is happening to some now is they HAVE to tap that button to activate the Spooktacular Bonus round. I am not sure what happens to them if they do not tap the button at 2,000 and keep collecting but this issue requires the player to have to keep tapping and checking the count in order to not miss the bonus. and perhaps lose the chance at free
The second outcome that is happening occurred in my game twice since the update. When I reached 2,000 the bonus did not activate, It wasn’t until I collected the 2,0001st that the bonus round prompted but I did not have to tap the See Prizes button. This is not as bad as the above outcome since it still activates on its own and does not require me to have to keep tapping and checking the count. Still though, it is enough to cause alarm in some players.
And the last outcome is the best, the business as usual outcome where the bonus round opens on its own exactly at 2000. There were enough of each outcome reported to that we, especially Emma feel it very necessary to bring this to everyone’s attention because it may be happening to you and you may not even be aware of it and end up losing out on some and we do not want that to happen to anyone. Hopefully most of you have the normal outcome but please be sure to double-check your counts just in case you are having the same issue as others are. If you are having this issue it’s best to be vigilante for the next 6 days as I do not see any fixes being released for it with so little time left in the event.
Again I reiterate, this is just to warn any or all of you of a possible issue. I am not stating that this is definitely happening to all of you. There’s only a few days left so be sure to get every free item and possible!
