  1. Worst update ever since the Clash of Clones! Just effing awful!!! Yes, polute our towns with 20+ gaudy casinos and garbage period! Oh, yeah…that do NOTHING! Bailed on this sooo early….EA….this was pure diarrhea on your part!!!! You better come up with something solid in the next quarter!!! No pun intended!


  2. Do you guys think that there will be a update today?


    1. too late for one probably tomorrow


  3. Hi, dumb question, how do i manually update im sick of the casino, I have tried app store?


    1. What store? Ios or android? If it doesnt show up just reinstall. Remember to have a origin/ea account first!!!!

        Sorry not very tech, I m playing on android On 31/03/2016 3:58 AM, “The Simpsons Tapped Out TopiX” wrote:

        1. just go to the actual game page there and click update.


  4. Don’t know if anyone can help, but since the update after this event finished I can no longer get on the game on my IPad, have uninstalled and reinstalled and it has made no difference, the game loads, opens and then shuts down before I can do anything.


    1. Only ea can probably help. Try another device first


  5. I’ve always struggled to find anything useful to do with the ornate pier. Now I’ve got it purely as a setting for La Belle Frottage. (I stored the super fancy yachts or whatever they’re called; who needs em?) I’ve used various decorations to do it up nice, and I’ve done the same with Burn$ Casino, which I’ve kept on the boardwalk where it belongs. After the takedown update I suddenly put far more effort into decorating the casinos than I did while the event was on. Fortunately I used up all my craftables in the end, loading up on casino accessories in case I ever wanted them.

    Why did they take away the bling section ,its no longer in my buy menu for example the escalator to nowhere, rotating restaurant,popsicle building an crusty oil rig all gone an i have a few million bank for an oil rig


    1. no idea. it was taken away with the St. Easter stuff. probably will come back next update since the double menu st.easter-event is now gone


    2. Really? That’s no good. The oil rig is the perfect tool for turning cash into donuts.


      1. How? Buy and sell? I use weather stations for that. Gotta love the new group tool.

        Waiting for level 60 then i have about 75 million to spend. Might split it with a level 61. 🙂


      2. What do you mean turn cash into donuts?


        1. sell buy sell buy -> getting lots of XP -> level up (bonus) fast


      3. Actually, aspirationals are the worst items for donut harvesting since they only give 1% XP as opposed to the usual 10%. Rat trap trucks are generally the best item for donut harvesting.


  8. Anybody else have the problem that you can’t collect chips?! Did the update on my phone and it took away ALL casino tasks. I also lost the ability to play any of the casino game…..poker, dice, slots.


    1. that’s what a event takedown does: the event was over. the update removed the event


  9. Even though I wasn’t forced to take down the event, chips stopped counting toward donuts for me. Oh well, I cleaned up pretty good over the course of these few weeks, I really didn’t need three more that badly. Also, I got my last daily task in under the wire, and that was good for a donut.


    1. yea that ended this morning at 9am BST.


  10. Wish we could choose where to have our game open up to… Previously I’d designed my town so it would open up to town hall and my unemployment buildings being the first thing I saw, making it easy to either locate characters or assign tasks.


  11. Was it my imagination or does Chippy now pay out cash like the Spuckler kids?

    Tried playing this on iPad Air, but keeps asking me to update after updating… Really annoyed, hope they fix this soon. Plays fine on iPhone 6s

    Not my favourite event. I just managed to get Gabbo thanks to the currency still being accepted, but this is the first event in a long time where I haven’t won all the prizes. The games wore thin quickly, especially when loosing and get small wins was common place (the irony of it being gambling isn’t lost on me). Still, it’s a pity the games didn’t remain to work alongside Springfield Downs as some kind of mini-game.


    1. This event was quite the easiest I can remember. I’ve never been able to collect as many bonuts in any event before, even in my freemium game. As long as you played regularly every 4hrs you should have had an easy time.


  14. Yay, its finaly over! Thought it was lame of them to discontinue bonus donuts before the rest of the takedown. Wasted time w zombies before realizing it didn’t matter. Only needed 700 to get the prize, but whatever. Also the daily prize awarded me 1300 chips! Oh boy! Overall it was a fun event, though the gambling became a time consuming chore(reminded me of those wonderful holiday wheels!)

  15. What has happened to the daily tasks?


    1. If you had a task that rewarded game currency it is no longer there and tomorrow a new one should start.
